Love and Death In Trieste

Free sample


Milo
Marchetti, an unstoppable but damaged Canadian hero of the Afghanistan
War, pursues the love of the unattainable, feisty Adara Nasim, the
daughter of Mohammed, the patriarch of the criminal Nasim family of
Trieste, Italy. While Milo fights for the woman he comes to love, Adara
has to struggle with her deepening need for Milo and the obligation to
her father to marry a man of his choice.








Can
Milo overcome Adara's degenerate brother's attempt to have him arrested
by the police for prostitute murders and protect Adara from being
killed by the rival Mazzola family? Can he escape the death threat of
his former boss in military intelligence, and eliminate Adara's intended
husband, a radical, criminal Muslim? Will religious differences be too
big a hurdle for Adara and Milo to overcome and will the powerful sexual
distraction of another love interest for Milo end his interest in
Adara?

Worst
of all, will Milo's shocking discovery about Adara's relationship with
her brother prevent Milo from marrying her and becoming head of the
Nasim family?

About the author

 George is a well-travelled educator who loves the thrill of visiting foreign countries (about forty so far) and experiencing their cultures. Besides history, cuisine and architecture, he is particularly fascinated by language and religion. (Nowhere will he not try to speak the language with the locals, whether they like it or not.) These are facets of human civilisation he likes to bring to his fast-paced thrillers, with a dash of the romance that is at the core of our existence thrown in. George was born in England and after university moved to Los Angeles, California, USA, and to Toronto, Canada. He ended up living and working for almost thirty years as a college instructor in the biological sciences on Vancouver Island, British Columbia before he was put out to pasture—and had the freedom to travel. He is currently completing a second thriller-romance novel, tentatively titled Recycled Love, based upon a trip with his wife and fellow author, Serena Janes, across the fabulous mayhem of India to the calm of the sherpas in Nepal. Love and Death in Trieste is his first novel and was written after an exciting trip through Slovenia, Croatia, Italy and Bosnia. Visit the author at http://georgehenryauthor.com/

George Henry Lewes
"This volume is restricted to the group of material conditions which constitute the organism in relation to the physical world--a group which furnishes the data for one half of the psychologist's quest; the other half being furnished by historical and social conditions. The Human Mind, so far as it is accessible to scientific inquiry, has a twofold root, man being not only an animal organism but an unit in the social organism; and hence the complete theory of its functions and faculties must be sought in this twofold direction. One leading object of the following pages has been everywhere to substitute the biological point of view for the metaphysical and mechanical points of view which too often obstruct research--the one finding its expression in spiritualist theories, the other in materialist theories; both disregarding the plain principle that the first requisite in a theory of biological phenomena must be to view them in the light of biological conditions. Another object has been to furnish the reader uninstructed in physiology with such a general outline of the structure and functions of the organism, and such details respecting the sentient mechanism, as may awaken an interest in the study, and enable him to understand the application of Physiology to Psychology. The volume contains four essays. The first, on the Nature of Life, deals with the specialty of organic phenomena, as distinguished from the inorganic. The second essay is on the Nervous Mechanism, setting forth what is known and what is inferred respecting the structure and properties of that all-important system. The third essay treats of Animal Automatism. Here the constant insistence on the biological point of view, while it causes a rejection of the mechanical theory, admits the fullest recognition of all the mechanical relations involved in animal movements, and thus endeavors to reconcile the contending schools. In the final essay the Reflex Theory is discussed; and here once more the biological point of view rectifies the error of an analysis which has led to the denial of Sensibility in reflex actions, because that analysis has overlooked the necessary presence of the conditions which determine Sensibility"--Preface.
