Review of ‘The Snow Globe’

Posted on Updated on

When Maggie Kincaid started having strange dreams, she broke her engagement with Michael, a man she thought she loved, but discovered that she didn’t really know. Obsessed with her, he begins a relentless pursuit that causes her to flee from city to city in a vain effort to escape him. When Michael turns his attention to her sister, Julie, Maggie decides that it’s time to stop running. Law enforcement, despite a number of restraining orders, has not been able to help her, and the dreams featuring her deceased grandmother, and her effort to get a message to Maggie, get worse. After Michael kidnaps Julie and tells Maggie that if she doesn’t return to him Julie will die, she takes matters into her own hands, becoming the pursuer instead of the victim, following him from New York City to Washington, DC, in the hopes that she can finally bring her nightmare to an end.

The Snow Globe by Tony Faggioli is a riveting thriller that deals with the issue of stalking, the limitations of the legal system to curb this life-shattering crime, and how one person, with determination and persistence, can take control of her own life.

Overlaying the human aspects of the story is a bit of paranormal activity that is only partially explained—but, this is not a deal killer. Characters bring to mind real-life people, despite the paranormal aspect, and are easy, if a bit uncomfortable, to relate to.

Review of ‘One Plus One’

Posted on Updated on

The battle between the forces of light and dark continues. For Kyle Fasano, a millionth, and Napoleon Vila, a police detective who voluntarily went to hell in an effort to save Fasano, it’s a time for making the choice between love and heaven—the choice that each makes will surprise you. While these two men struggle through hell with the Gray Man, Vila’s partner, Detective Evan Parker, must fight against the forces of evil who have come through the thin veil that separates this world from the next; a struggle that is complicated by the fact that he’s one of a few mortals aware of the opening rift.

One Plus One by Tony Faggioli is the concluding book in a fascinating trilogy that explores the meaning of theology, belief, and love. A chilling read that will make you question the premise of unquestioning faith like no other.

Review of ‘A Million to One’

Posted on Updated on

In One in a Million by Tony Faggioli, Kyle Fasano is given a chance at redemption. He is the millionth, which means that by sacrificing himself, he creates the opportunity for a million souls to be called to repent. Some will answer the call, but some will not.

In A Million to One, the journey continues. In hell, Kyle struggles to learn what his true mission is, while Detective Napoleon Villa, a man who believes in heaven and hell, has volunteered to accompany the Gray Man to hell to find him. In the meantime, back on earth, Villa’s partner finds a case that is somehow tied to Fasano; a serial killer who heeds the voice of the Other, and Fasano’s wife is fighting off demons who seem determined to destroy what’s left of her family.

The reader is taken on a whipsaw journey between hell and hell on earth as the forces of Good and Evil battle for dominance, a journey that will leave your blood chilled and have you shrinking from every shadow.

Review of ‘One in a Million’

Posted on Updated on

Kyle Fasano is a man who has it all, a loving family and a nice house, but he risks it all for a one-night fling with a young woman from his office. Plagued with guilt, and scared out of his wits when she tries to kill him the morning after, he flees, and encounters a strange man in gray who apparently has supernatural powers.

When the young woman’s body is found in a bloody puddle on the sidewalk outside the hotel, LAPD detective, Napoleon Villa, is assigned the case. He is a man plagued with his own demons, still haunted by the case of a serial killer he failed to stop.

The paths of these two torment men, one with everything to lose, and one with nothing to lose, cross in a chilling tale of love, mystery, and other-worldly madness, as the Gray Man sends Kyle on a mission of redemption—he must save his first love, Victoria, from going down the road he has already traveled, but he finds that the cost of redemption is high.

One in a Million by Tony Faggioli is a gripping tale that combines the supernatural with a compelling mystery as Napoleon tracks Kyle to the site of his final confrontation with his past. The ending will leave you in a state of shock, and with many unanswered questions. This one’s a real page-turner.
