This is Antonio Spinelli's story.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.
Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

I just finished reading this book and am in a daze. Completely blew my brains off! There is passion (oh, so hot!), scheming, shooting, bombs, blood is spilled and death is knocking at the door!
I am a fan of anything CD Reiss writes. She has a dark side to her writing that digs deep into the psyche of her characters like a treasure hunter. The gems she plucks out are then exposed for our perusal and we wonder... why didn't I see that before? She is able to unearth the raw truth and emotions and although they may not be all rosy and proper, she still shines a light on them and makes us think.
Antonio, our Capo, is so over the moon for Theresa he is willing to sacrifice everything for her. He keeps attempting to find a way out of their dilemma but keeps approaching the problem from his unique point of view and culture. Theresa has been freed by Antonio's love and is now ready to spread her wings and exercise her intelligence in also trying to solve their problem. The only problem is that she acts like an emancipated American woman, which does not translate well to ways of the underworld the old country mafioso ways. Both are trying individually without results. The pressures bearing down on them only worsen as all they try to do solve their problem turns on them. They are both at their limit of forbearance and it all appears to be hopeless.
As they plan a solution, the risks appear insurmountable. All is not as it seems. They have the District Attorney breathing down their necks, the local factions of the underworld plotting, and the Sicilian side of the families also dictating what must happen.
I could not see a way out for them and was amazed as I read on to find an intelligent plot line full of deviousness and excitement you will not soon forget. Amazed because I could not see a way out, surprised not. Meaning, this is written by CD Reiss after all and we know there are dark corners to this author's mind spinning brilliant stories for our amusement. This is a gem of a story... CD can I have some more?
