Edgar Award winner and master of contemporary noir Domenic Stansberry returns to San Francisco’s North Beach and Dante Mancuso, the dark PI who grew up on its tough streets.

After a career with a shadowy security firm with interests on both sides of the law, Dante has come home to put all that behind him and has gone to work for a private investigator. A call alerts him early one morning that Bill Owens, a fellow PI, has been charged with a notorious thirty-year-old killing. Bill was involved in a political group in the late sixties, which among other pranks and small-time crimes, held up a bank. Except that time, an innocent bystander was shot and killed. To clear Owens of these charges, Dante will have to retrace the original investigation through San Francisco’s radical underground and bring in the man who was pulling the strings.

The Ancient Rain is a chilling novel from one of crime fiction’s finest. Stansberry spools out a narrative filled with deceit and betrayal, and in his hands the line between justice and revenge is razor sharp.

Praise for The Ancient Rain

Praise for Domenic Stansberry

“Stansberry is an extraordinarily evocative writer.”
--George Pelecanos, author of The Night Gardener

“A hypnotic, compelling read. It’s one part Sopranos, another part Greek tragedy.”
--The Boston Globe on The Big Boom

“Broodingly atmospheric . . . Readers will find themselves absorbed.”
--San Francisco Chronicle on The Big Boom

“To all those mystery readers who believe that the classic detective story has played itself out, Stansberry delivers a bracing slap upside the head. And it feels so good.”
