7th Book Coming Soon

The 7th book of the De Cenza Murder Mystery series begins with a celebration of an upcoming marriage between Ron De Cenza and Susan Liguri. After several years of conflicting feelings as to serve the Church or follow one’s heart mixed with murder cases and mysteries to be solved, Ron and Susan are to approach the altar. However, a discovery found in a City of Chicago landmark has them and their pals once again drawn into a plot which would destroy the archeological discoveries made by them. These events are related to the terrorist group called the Red Brigade in Italy, which is set to establish a new world order. Their greed and theories are spread from Argentina, Uruguay, Ireland and Britain and explodes on the scene in America.

That confrontation of revolution, faith, history and love revolves around two legends. For a hundred and fifty years the missing crown jewels of Spain have eluded treasure hunters and archeologists alike. For over a thousand years the myths surrounding the founding of Ireland by the Nuatha have never been proven. All of that is about to change now as both the Legend of Joseph Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon, and the Gifts of the Nuatha and relic of St. Malachy are to be on full display. The exhibits will dispel myth and historical fiction. But the tentacles of a sinister mastermind reach out across oceans and nations to plot and bring together a cast of characters who will stop at nothing to invade the Field Museum of Chicago and steal the proofs of history and myth.
