Book Description

Dec 12 2012
Lt. Frank Carlucci is drawn into an investigation surrounding the disappearance of his daughter's friend. But as Carlucci digs deeper, the corruption and decay he finds is nothing compared to a final horror that could have devastating implications: a secret known only as Cancer Cell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another terrific Carlucci novel Jan. 14 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Carlucci's Heart is the latest, and maybe the best, of Russo's novels featuring Lt. Carlucci, a homicide detective in futuristic San Francisco. Russo's previous novels, "Destroying Angel" and "Carlucci's Edge" are other great stories, and it is not necessary that they be read chronologically to be enjoyed. The stories are suspenseful and move well, and dialogue is sharp and real. The real strengths of Russo's books are: the vivid portrayal of our civilization to come, and the character of Carlucci, a good man doing his best in a struggle against a world going to hell. DEFINITELY WORTH CHECKING THIS BOOK OUT.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than neal stephenson and william gibson Oct. 8 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
not cyberpunk, no strange technology, the setting is a future san francisco/united states where there is numbness to the power of the commercial ruling class. the story is part epidemic, part human drama, dads and children, love stories. weaves a powerful story around a strange and unusual environment. i have not read the other carlucci books but plan to put them on my list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Russo does it again! Another cyber punk noir classic! July 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this novel was one of the best I have ever read. You are drawn into Russo's darkly beautiful world, and it is so much fun. He is as good, if not better than William Gibson. His prose is richly textured and detailed. I hope he doesn't make us wait long for another great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Study or read? Aug. 20 2000

I ended up staying up half the night before finals to finish this book. I could not put it down. The characters drew me in, made me feel for them, want to help them......
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting adventure with some dubious plotting Oct. 29 1998
By Thomas O. Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I haven't read a whole lot of cyberpunk, but most of what I have read (e.g., Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash) has been quite a bit better than this. Russo mixes a cyberpunkish background with a detective story, and gets something that is really not quite up to the best of either. The plot of this book needs tightening up--far too many pages pass with little or nothing happening in the case that is the center of the novel. And Russo doesn't quite have the voice of the inner-city cop down--try any of Lawrence Block's Matt Scudder mysteries to see a master of this genre at work. The premise here was interesting, and the narrative didn't flag, but I found a fair amount of the writing and reactions of the characters to be a little too predictable.
