Frank Viviano

SUMMARY

More than a century ago, Frank Viviano's great-great-grandfather was murdered at a lonely crossroads in Sicily. He had been a revolutionary & a thief, a bandit who traveled by night in the robes of a friar. In 1993, shortly before his death, Viviano's ninety-six-year-old grandfather whispered the name of the murderer to him - "Domenico Valenti" - & nothing more. The whisper sent Viviano, a seasoned reporter, to their family's ancestral village in Sicily in search of the Monk & his killer. In pursuit of a mystery that left his namesake dead on a country lane, drove his family to America, & set in motion an eighty-year conspiracy of silence, Viviano was confronted by ever more baffling clues & coincidences, cloaked in a nearly impenetrable code of discretion. Instead of answers, he found a labyrinth of other, interlocked mysteries, where everything - names, identities, motives - fell under the same enigmatic veil as his grandfather's last words. But after seven years, those mysteries eventually merged in a single story with a stunning climax. It was to change Viviano's entire understanding of his family's past & the violent contradictions of his own life as a war correspondent.Frank Viviano is the author of 'Blood Washes Blood: A True Story of Love, Murder, and Redemption Under the Sicilian Sun', published 2001 under ISBN 9780671041588 and ISBN 0671041584.
