The story is based in the village of Positano, a cliff-side village on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast. And and in the city of Reggio, Calabra, a coastal city in southern Italy, separated from Sicily by the Strait of Messina. My characters travel back and forth from these two locations in Italy to Manhattan, New York, the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural center of the era located in southeastern New York state.

Distant Past

My story is told through flashbacks and present day of the era; 1906 to 1929.

It's the same nightmare. I'm five years old and echoes of wailing, moaning, screaming and pleading return. I know it's not a dream. My terror is real. It's Italy twenty-three years earlier when I witnessed my mother , Alessandra Rossini's murder.


Retribution crackles with electricity when Agostino Rossini and his venomous half-brother, The Leopard an assassin, find themselves locked in a dual to death.

After Rossini finds his mother's body buried beneath an oak cask in his grandfather's wine cellar, he throws himself into a challenge with a determination to bring the killer, his grandfather to justice.

Determined to separate truth from lies, Rossini uncovers a heartbreaking tale of families divided, friendships sealed in blood, and obsessive love.

As brutality follows upon brutality, and Rossini's belief of justice falters, his family's life and his own come under fire. Thrust into the heart of a heated controversy, Rossini embarks on a desperate search for answers in Italy where passions rage out of control and murder is as predictable as the run rising.

Complex and powerful, human and heroic, the story burns with an intimate look at a damning secret that has been buried for twenty-eight years.
