In the Mouth of the Wolf

This historical novel grew from true stories & mysteries from my Italian family.


As World War II comes to a chaotic end, a hunt for Nazi collaborators terrorizes the northern Italian city of Trieste.  When his brother Umberto, a Fascist banker, becomes a target, Amedeo Nassutti, a socialist trolley driver, must decide whether to help.  But Umberto has refused to speak to him for 20 years, and just making the attempt could cost Amedeo his life.

Chapter 1, In the Mouth of the Wolf

Chapter 2, Six Days Earlier
