Milo Marchetti, an unstoppable but damaged Canadian hero of the Afghanistan War, pursues the love of the unattainable, feisty Adara Nasim, the daughter of Mohammed, the patriarch of the criminal Nasim family of Trieste, Italy. While Milo fights for the woman he comes to love, Adara has to struggle with her deepening need for Milo and the obligation to her father to marry a man of his choice.

Can Milo overcome Adara's degenerate brother's attempt to have him arrested by the police for prostitute murders and protect Adara from being killed by the rival Mazzola family? Can he escape the death threat of his former boss in military intelligence, and eliminate Adara's intended husband, a radical, criminal Muslim? Will religious differences be too big a hurdle for Adara and Milo to overcome and will the powerful sexual distraction of another love interest for Milo end his interest in Adara?

Worst of all, will Milo's shocking discovery about Adara's relationship with her brother prevent Milo from marrying her and becoming head of the Nasim family?

About the Author

George is a well-travelled educator who loves the thrill of visiting foreign countries (about forty so far) and experiencing their cultures. Besides history, cuisine and architecture, he is particularly fascinated by language and religion. (Nowhere will he not try to speak the language with the locals, whether they like it or not.) These are facets of human civilisation he likes to bring to his fast-paced thrillers, with a dash of the romance that is at the core of our existence thrown in. George was born in England and after university moved to Los Angeles, California, USA, and to Toronto, Canada. He ended up living and working for almost thirty years as a college instructor in the biological sciences on Vancouver Island, British Columbia before he was put out to pasture—and had the freedom to travel. He is currently completing a second thriller-romance novel, tentatively titled Recycled Love, based upon a trip with his wife and fellow author, Serena Janes, across the fabulous mayhem of India to the calm of the sherpas in Nepal. Love and Death in Trieste is his first novel and was written after an exciting trip through Slovenia, Croatia, Italy and Bosnia. Visit the author at
