Kindness for the Damned: A Novella of Intrigue, Love and Redemption in Sicily. This novella takes its readers and characters through ancient mysteries, confrontations with evil forces, along with the foibles of everyday life, in an entertaining yet thought-provoking story.
A member of the British royal family in Sicily during the Napoleonic Wars is stabbed at an Ancient Greek Temple. He is saved by an old man and his son, which leads to the discovery of an ancient mystery of great healing powers. Two hundred years later, a U.S. company tries to replicate the mysterious formula brought to them by a doctor from Sicily in the form of a new healing ointment. Unable to re-create the ointment, the Company sends a high-powered corporate executive, Roberta Sax, and an ailing patent lawyer, Patrick Messina, to work with the doctor to de-code the formula in his laboratory in Sicily. In doing so, the Americans’ lives are changed forever by the people and the Island. Ultimately, the Americans and their Sicilian friends are threatened by an evil priest who has learned this ancient secret offers spiritual as well as physical healing powers: This priest wants this power to try to save himself from heinous crimes he has committed in the name of his Church, including the murder of a pope
