Booktalk: Lisa Scottoline’s historical crime novel, LOYALTY

The always fun Lisa Scottoline is back with her 37th novel, LOYALTY, a historical novel about the beginnings of the Mafia on the island of Sicily in the 1800’s.

Readers will be transported to the dramatic and ruggedly beautiful island of Sicily, the jewel of the Mediterranean, where lush lemon groves and mouth-watering cuisine contrast with a turbulent history of colonization and corruption.

Tune in for Italian American former lawyer/law professor Scottoline explaining what’s missing from the movie The Godfather, why law and justice are often not the same thing, and why in some families loyalty is everything.

She has an amazing 30 million books in print and has been published in 35 countries.
