In the lax atmosphere of middle-class post-war Italy, sex and drugs are easy to come by. Roberto tries to find his own balance, but a crush he had for Alessandra in elementary school is reignited and the course of his life is changed forever.
>>>Love, Sex And Betrayal
It’s the 1970’s, a time of political upheaval driven by disillusioned young people. Roberto is caught up in the times. He makes a new start, but his past catches up with him. Finding himself accused of a crime, he must defend himself even when he isn’t sure he committed it.
A new adult novel that will grab you and won’t let you go.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
An Italian Obsession by Kfir Luzzato is a taut thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one. The book is set in the 1970s and tells the story of Roberto, a man struggling to find himself during a time of political upheaval.
Italy is in the midst of a crisis where sex and drugs become everyone’s obsession, and though Roberto tries to make a new start for himself, he keeps being pulled back into this world of crime and passion. His one light at the end of the tunnel is Alessandra, but their love is put to the test as Roberto is accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
The characters in An Italian Obsession pop off the page and secure themselves to your heart. You can’t help but be emotionally driven until you turn that last page and like any good book, you’re left wanting more. I’ve read several of Luzzato’s novels and short stories and have yet to walk away disappointed. I recommend An Italian Obsession as well as the rest of the thrilling mysteries in his collection and can’t wait for the next.

Meet the Author:
Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer.
With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis.
Writing has always been Kfir’s passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly “Patents” column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press.
Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that’s how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor.
You can read about Kfir’s books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.
