Edward Izzi, CPA is a native of Detroit, with a successful accounting firm in suburban Chicago. A talented writer in high school, he was told by one of his English teachers that any career in anything other than writing would be 'waste of time'. He didn't start writing until later in life. He has written now many fiction thrillers, including "Of Bread and Wine
", "A Rose from The Executioner
", "Demons of Divine Wrath
", "Quando Dormo
", "El Camino Drive
". & and the recent political thriller "When A Rook Takes the Queen
Edward Izzi's timing for the release of "A Rose from The Executioner
" is uncanny, as the Archdiocese of Chicago is actually selling off land next to Holy Name Cathedral to help defray the costs for sexual child abuse. He questions and balances the moral dilemma of vigilantism vs. a detective trying to allow the law to deal with injustice. And yes, we still get some of the mysticism of Da Vinci Code. It is entertaining, yet it certainly reminds us of our need for diligence in reporting and working to stop all forms of human abuse, especially child abuse.
Great story line. I finished this author's first book "Of Bread & Wine
" in 2 sittings and "A Rose from The Executioner
" this one in 4. Too hard to put them down.
Every time I wanted to put it down for the evening, I would say just one more chapter, four chapters later, I was still reading.
It was great to see the names of many familiar streets and the schools I went to in the book.
Made for a very fun read. The ending was a total surprise. I look forward to book 3 form this new and exciting author. Looking forward to the movie!
I've got to catch up on everything I've been neglecting, as every time I put this book down, I would say, "Okay, just one more chapter!"
This story is so timely, with all the "news" lately, and I really liked the way it presented the storyline, and the characters.
You never knew whose side you were supposed to be on, and the twists and turns had me guessing....and not correctly! Loved it!
This book mixes suspense, intrigue and history but with a deeper meaning of how money doesn't create happiness!
It also gives a clear view of the weaknesses of the Vatican structure as it unnecessary complicates people's lives who try to give their best trying to do some good in this world of today.
Can't put his books down. Definitely an up and coming author...Bravo!
A literary opus...looking forward to reading more from this exciting new author.
If you are fan of Dan Brown, you will enjoy this book. A good book will grab the reader within first 10 pages. "Of Bread & Wine
" did that for me. I look forward to reading next thriller-suspense novels from this amazing author.
