Detroit and Italy.....what could these two cities have in common? You would be surprised.
There was a connection between the two cities, and it definitely wasn't a good connection. The connection involved murder, marital affairs, the Mafia, street gangs, and kidnappings.
The book's chapters slide from one side of the world to the other and ultimately end up in Italy along with all the characters. The characters are vividly described along with the action. You will feel the tension among the characters as they "face off" in different situations. You will also be frightened for the characters because of some of the choices they make. The ending has non-stop action.
It took a few chapters to get the hang of where the book was heading, but you won't be disappointed. The excellent writing and descriptions of Italy's landscape and life allow you to be there.
My rating is a 4/5 since it took a few chapters to get interesting, but once you realize the relationship between the characters, it is difficult to put down. You will need to brush up on your Italian too. :)
