The Errant Child: Coming Home by Ozzie Logozzo is the story of an obsessive husband and his tempting, seductive wife. Renzo believes that his wife has been unfaithful, not physically, but psychologically. The tension in their marriage boils relentlessly but never comes to fruition. Across Italy, state events are coming together to thrust Renzo and Emily into a life they never dreamed of. The mafia, the police, the Roman Catholic Church, right down to a secret society called Stregheria, their paths intertwine with corruption, murder and conspiracy. Renzo’s past collides with his present, leaving him unable to find happiness with Emily until she provides him with honesty, but events are about to overtake them and change destiny with far-reaching effects, not just for them but for the whole nation.

The Errant Child by Ozzie Logozzo is set in Italy and is a unique tale. I initially struggled with some of the wording; however, I could see past this to what was beneath - the makings of a great story. It was helpful to have an explanation of who was who at the start and of the Italian words used. The story itself is packed with action and the characters are developed extensively. The book starts in the past, providing background that explains actions in the main part of the story, and this is helpful. It is written in first-person present tense which makes it feel as though you are watching events unfold as they happen. It's a deep story and the plot definitely has merit; a complex combination of several events that clash with one another to provide some very real tension in the story. The narrative is descriptive and brings the story to life, the characters are colorful and the setting is perhaps one of the best in the world. A very involved read, ideal for those who like epic tales.
