Book Review: Steve Emmett’s Diavolino is a hellishly delightful tale!

Written by R.A. Evans:

I’m a sucker for any story that involves discovering the gateway to hell. I blame Dante and his classic work INFERNO for this fascination. Needless to say, when I stumbled across DIAVOLINO my expectations were fairly high – and Emmett’s dark tale does not disappoint.

The story follows architect Tom Lupton and his charming family as they arrive in Italy to deisgn a home for a wealthy client on the small island of Diavolino. Foreign locales offer endless opportunity for frights and Emmett’s powerful descriptions of the Italian countryside, and those who call it home, pull you deeper into his clutches as the sinister story of the island’s dark past unfolds.

Th story’s pacing is flawless and Emmett’s writing grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go. From London to Italy and eventually to the very gates of Hell, Diavolino is the perfect mix of horror, mystery, and suspense. Dan Brown fans will come for the Vatican conspiracies – Stephen King fans will stay for the chills.
