~ I received a free copy of this book from iRead Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review. 

“It’s hard for me to believe that just a short time ago, I lived a peaceful, content life. I was a proud father, devoted husband, good neighbor, and friend to many. But all of that has changed. She has stolen my neat and orderly life and has sentenced me to live in misery.” 

Above is the first paragraph of the book. D.M. Annechino has done it again. He has immediately grabbed my attention and piqued my curiosity. 

Who is she and what did she do to this man? And, knowing what type of book this is, I instantly started to speculate as to what horrendous crime this once respectable and well-liked man would commit. 

Detective Sami Rizzo is now married to Al and they have a three year old son. Sami’s daughter, Angelina, is now eight years old. 

One aspect of the Sami and Al romance storyline that drives me crazy is that in RESUSCITATION Al slept with a nurse while visiting his comatose sister in Brazil. Sami and Al were living together at the time, but were not yet married. Sami obviously forgives Al, but I don’t know how anyone could ever forgive a cheater. The circumstances were extraordinary, but to my mind that does not matter at all. I have a hard time believing that Sami would be able to ever trust him again and no marriage can survive without trust. However, all of that is obviously my own opinions on the subject and some women are able to be much more forgiving than I could ever be.

Author D.M. Annechino has a knack for getting inside the heads of seemingly “normal” people who through extraordinary circumstances have been pushed into ‘snapping’ and A PIECE OF YOU proves this.

The story begins quickly and the pace never lets up. Once again D.M. Annechino has created a taut thrill ride that will sweep readers along and keep them enthralled from the first page to the last. 

I rate A PIECE OF YOU as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have quickly become a fan of The Detective Sami Rizzo series and of author D.M. Annechino.

FAVOURITE QUOTES FROM THE SERIES:

Book Two: RESUSCITATION

“It seemed to Al that society had become so super sensitive about everything from religion to ethnicity you had to walk on eggshells every time you opened your mouth for fear you would offend someone. Years ago if you lived on the streets, you were a bum, plain and simple, then some do-gooder decided that bums should be called ‘homeless people’. Most recently the term had become ‘financially disadvantaged’. 

“A detective without balls might as well work at Walmart as a greeter.” 

BOOK THREE: A PIECE OF YOU

“Revenge can be a soothing ointment.”

Author’s Bio:

  
Daniel M. Annechino, a former book editor specializing in full-length fiction, wrote his first book, How to Buy the Most Car for the Least Money, in 1992 while working as a General Manager in the automobile business. But his passion had always been fiction, particularly thrillers. He spent two years researching serial killers before finally penning his gripping and memorable debut novel They Never Die Quietly.

His second book, Resuscitation (Thomas & Mercer 2011), a follow-up to his first novel, hit #1 in Kindle sales in the UK and reached #26 in the USA. He is also the author of I Do Solemnly Swear (Thomas & Mercer 2012) and Hypocrisy. A Piece of You is his fifth novel, the third in the Detective Sami Rizzo series. A native of New York, Annechino now lives in San Diego with his wife, Jennifer. He loves to cook, enjoys a glass of vintage wine, and spends lots of leisure time on the warm beaches of Southern California.
