Today is the book birthday for Kristi Belcamino and the first of her Gabriella Giovanni mysteries Blessed are the Dead. The blurb sounds fabulous.
To catch a killer, one reporter must risk it all…
San Francisco Bay Area newspaper reporter Gabriella Giovanni spends her days on the crime beat flitting in and out of other people’s nightmares, yet walking away unscathed. When a little girl disappears on the way to the school bus stop, her quest for justice and a front-page story leads her to a convicted kidnapper, Jack Dean Johnson, who reels her in with promises to reveal his exploits as a long-time serial killer. But, Gabriella’s passion for her job quickly spirals into obsession when she begins to suspect the kidnapper may have ties to her own dark past: her sister’s murder.
Risking her life, her job, and everything she holds dear, Gabriella embarks on a path to find answers and stop a deranged murderer before he strikes again.
Perfect for fans of Sue Grafton and Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan series!
It sounds terrific, something that’s right up my alley and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Of course it’s in print, but if you want the joy of instant gratification, snag yourself a copy at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, or direct from HarperCollins.
Kristi Belcamino is a writer, artist and crime reporter who also bakes a tasty biscotti. Her first novel, “Blessed are the Dead,” (HarperCollins June 2014) is inspired by her dealings with a serial killer during her life as a Bay Area crime reporter. As an award-winning crime reporter at newspapers in California, she flew over Big Sur in an FA-18 jet with the Blue Angels, raced a Dodge Viper at Laguna Seca, and watched autopsies.
