About the Book:

Loy­al­ty is an emo­tion­al, action-packed epic, set dur­ing the rise of the Mafia well before the events of The God­fa­ther. This nov­el trans­ports the read­er to 19th cen­tu­ry Sici­ly, a dra­mat­ic and rugged­ly beau­ti­ful island where lush lemon groves and mouth-water­ing cui­sine con­trast with a tur­bu­lent his­to­ry of col­o­niza­tion and cor­rup­tion. Gio­van­ni is kid­napped as a young boy and grows up in a mad­house. Years pass and Gio­van­ni meets a beau­ti­ful iso­lat­ed girl named Lucia. They set out to bring his kid­nap­pers to jus­tice, get­ting an unex­pect­ed assist from sep­tu­a­ge­nar­i­an Alfre­do, who is secret­ly Jew­ish, but prac­tices his reli­gion under­cov­er. The char­ac­ters meet in a mon­u­men­tal show­down at the Sicil­ian sul­fur mines, a place described as hell on earth. There, secrets will be uncov­ered, iden­ti­ties dis­cov­ered, and the bat­tle for jus­tice fought to the death.
