” Hired gun in Philadelphia” offers a fascinating mystery that provides a panoramic view over Philadelphia, as well as focused views on cockfighting, tango dancing and an insider’s view into the pharmaceutical industry.
Daria is the main character. She works as a legal K8Viva Kien Thuc Nuoi Ga Choi reviewer. Andrea Kaluzny is also the main occupation. Daria becomes a detective when her colleague is killed in a South Philly building collapse. She has a friend who is skilled in police investigation techniques, and she also has a list of contacts. Some clues can be found in legal documents while others are elsewhere. The plot thickens when a tango instructor is murdered, and the investigation expands before it comes back together again.
Kaluzny, a modern urban nomad, was born in West Berlin, and currently lives in Miami. He has also lived in London, Paris, London, Beijing, Tokyo, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. The author recalls his time living alongside the Wall and needing visas for East Germany and transit visas for West Germany. He also knew minor spies, couriers, and vividly remembers the Fall of the Wall.
Kaluzny, who is well-travelled and a former tango student, is also a yoga instructor and historian. She is also a legal document reviewer. Andrea is a champion for document reviews who are often seen as the underdogs of the legal system, but are instead quiet and unadorned talented and creative professionals — many intelligent but hardworking and underappreciated.
As an attorney by profession, Ms. Kaluzny has been a document reviewer since 2007, and has worked on many major international lawsuits, mainly in Philadelphia. She feels a special connection to Philadelphia and has made it the main setting for her interactive mystery novel. Before becoming a document reviewer, the author had experience as a Realtor, linguist, interpreter/translator, language teacher, and as a public relations intern.
