Welcome to stop #73 on A Hero's Blog Hop!
A Day in the Life of a Mafia Don
Enrico Lucchesi, the hero of my first book, Revenge (Blood and Honor #1), graciously agreed to give us a peek into his world.
A hotel porter delivers a box addressed to me, and a chill sweeps down my spine. The only people who know I'm here are part of my family, my cosca. And obviously, someone else, someone I don't know. The box isn't ticking, but I'm not touching it.
Ruggero, my senior bodyguard, and Antonio, my newest bodyguard, are with me now. We were supposed to leave for home, my villa at Lake Como, but we can't until we know what's in the box. Ruggero presses an ear to the wrapping. The box looks like a wedding present, the way it's covered in silver foil paper with a large white bow. Ruggero hears nothing, but motions Antonio and me away. Just in case.
The box is open, and Ruggero frowns but says nothing. My heart is pounding, my pulse going mad, waiting for him to say something. Anything. Finally he motions me forward. When I look inside, relief ripples over me, but for just a moment. It's no one I know. But the dead falcon that greets me is a warning; there's a falcon on the Lucchesi crest. And given the timing--the choice of this particular day, this day of mourning--I know exactly who the warning is from. But that's no comfort. No comfort at all.
