Danny Range's 422: Scandalous is a thought-provoking tale of suspense. Bruno Marchesi had everything. He was wealthy, attractive and one of the smoothest talkers you’ll ever meet. He was raised in Ohio but left town at 18, leaving a life of crime behind him. His family was head of the Italian Mafia but they wanted more for Marchesi. And he was well on his way to getting more out of life. So why then is he writing his story while hiding in a filthy, downtrodden motel room? Why is he saying that the police are after him? What happened to Bruno Marchesi?
Danny Range's 422: Scandalous is more than a fictional tale of suspense. It's more than just another tale of the Mafia. Danny Range takes us inside the head of someone with a mental illness, gives us a ringside seat into how a person copes, lives with this illness, day in, day out. This is a powerful tale – by all means, read it as a novel but don’t take the message it puts across too lightly. Another word of caution – this is not for younger readers. It is a violent book in places; it covers suicidal thoughts, drugs, sex, and more in depth. Now for the book; the plot is tight and it flows beautifully. The descriptive nature of the writing will leave you in no doubt as to what’s happening, you’ll even feel as though you are there. There are loads of twists and turns, plenty of action, and I guarantee the first few pages will grab your attention and hold it. Fictional the characters may be, but they are all very well-developed, especially Bruno Marchesi, into real people with very real issues in their lives. Start this book and you can’t fail to be pulled into it.
