“…pacy, gripping…about love grown monstrous and out of control”—Victoria Best, Tales from the Reading Room
“…not for the literary faint of heart…a powerful engaging story...”—Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R
"…very exciting. I was hooked by the time I finished the first chapter. It is very well written, fast moving and suspenseful.”—Barbara Juhl, Library Thing
The Obsession, the first entry in The Truth Beauty Trilogy, is a vibrant novel of suspense and murder, by turns intriguing and surprising, as three smart, driven people match wits with their lives at stake. When Stan, an American grad student falls for Lina, a lovely Italian scholar, his unrequited passion turns perverse. When he follows her from a mid-west college town to Bologna’s ancient streets, they are joined by John, Lina’s American lover and Stan’s mentor. Their love-lust triangle re-ignites, and they flee and chase down the storied Italian boot to a shocking conclusion on volcanic Mt. Etna.
“I loved this novel and can't wait to read the next in the trilogy. Fascinating, complex characters, a story full of surprising twists and a genuinely shocking ending. First rate suspense.”—Kate, Amazon Reviewer
