Good afternoon, let me introduce myself. I am an Italian author and I'm writing from Rome, with the Italian time, six hours ahead of eastern one. I published books and short stories and won several literary award. Just today I had a great literary event in Rome's Books Fair. I lived in United States during my adolescence, in Manchester, New Hampshire. I wrote a thriller set in Geff's Falls, during the 60ties and the english edition was published in, Barnes& Noble and Amazon. ca. This book is a touring one in this month.The synopsis of the book is the following:
A year in the United States, a fantastic opportunity to forget the events of the past. Then Diana will return to Rome, but if the experiment of life in New Hampshire will be a positive experience, she will be able to return to live in Manchester. And Diana strongly hopes to come back. In an evening of early spring, however, while with her friend Jenny, an obese girl, she is enjoying to skate on the still frozen Merrimack River, she doesn’t realize she has reached a point where the ice is breaking. In the fierce struggle that she engages against the power of the river waters that, with the beginning of the thaw are moving, Diana finds out that the too thin ice plate may not hold up. And below, after hearing a thud, Diana realizes that glides silently a human body, a corpse from which she could be sucked down to the river’s deep darkness. That’s the beginning of a real nightmare in which Diana will live during the months that remain until the departure from what she considered a quiet and peaceful American little town. Until the solution of the mystery, which will take place with a stunning end.
The events take place in a small town in the Northeast of the United States in 1965, when America was in the midst of the conflict in Vietnam. There are many descriptions of the places related to the amazing nature and to the complexity of American society. There is no lack of historical references.
