By: Dana Delamar
Ruggero Vela has been one of my absolute favorite side characters in this series since book one. He has such a dry, witty and sarcastic sense of humor. I love the insight that he’s been able to give to not only Don Lucchesi, but also Nick & Antonia and even the women. I love his loyalty to the Lucchesi family cosca and the families within it. I love his fearless protection of Enrico & Kate. Even though he knows that he will more than likely die in the line of duty, he never balks to do what is asked of him.
Judge Loredana Montisi is known to be an anti-mafia judge who is strict and deals out harsh punishments to those involved in the mafia. She has a very good reason to be incorruptible, unable to be bribed or paid off. Both of her parents were judges as well and had been attacked by mafia gunmen. Seeing Ruggero in her courtroom is more than a little disconcerting with his imposing presence, but she refuses to back down. Ruggero also likes that she is a strong woman who will not be bullied.
But there are dark and sinister forces that are driving the Enrico Lucchesi case from behind the scenes. At the end of book 3, we saw Lorenzo making the calls to get Lucchesi arrested. But now, we learn why he did what he did and made the calls that he made. It all boils down to nothing but greed, for more money and more power. He has already proved in previous books that he’s going to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goals. So the judge’s life is in danger if she doesn’t fall for the frame of Enrico.
There were several heart-stopping moments and times when you just didn’t know how and if everything could work out, while having all of the favorite characters come out on top. I also loved how this book ended and would definitely be interested in reading another book (or two) from this series.
As per usual, the book was meticulously though-out, researched, planned & executed. Dana Delamar may have taken longer to release this book than she (and her fans) had expected, but she also didn’t stop until the book was flawless & perfect.
