Lately, though, the line he walks has become razor thin.Dante works for The Company, a nebulous security organization operating just this side of the law. Dante wants out, but its a hard life to leave behind-rich with its own seductions, its own dark attractions.His latest assignment sends him back to his old North Beach neighborhood in San Francisco. First rendezvous? His estranged fathers funeral in the dying heart of Little Italy. Here Dante picks up the strands of his old life and soon finds himself playing an even more elaborate game, a game that involves not just his duplicitous family, but also his ex-fiancée and his former colleagues in the San Francisco Police Department.Adept as he is, Dante can not play this game forever, pursued by the laconic Frank Ying, a Chinese detective anxious to know the secrets Dante hides.

Caught between the sinister imperatives of The Company and the ghosts of his own past, Dante treads a harrowing path to a confrontation more lethal-and more surprising-than he could have imagined.With Chasing the Dragon, Domenic Stansberry-the acclaimed writer of modern noir-introduces a new hardboiled series set in San Francisco. In this, the series opener, Stansberry tells a story written in clear homage to the masters of the genre, yet with an original, breathtaking voice all his own.Domenic Stansberrys recent novels include the Edgar Award and Hammett Prize finalist The Last Days of Il Duce, Manifesto for the Dead, and The Confession.

He lives with his family in the San Francisco Bay area.
