RICARDO (The Santini Brothers #1). It's about the oldest of the Santini brothers and his love interest Bianca D'Angelo. Though, it has a wide range of interesting characters set in the mafia world on an island in the Mediterranean Sea. There are a few Dons, soldati (soldiers), hitmen, the Black Vipers (female assassins, etc. Each Santini brother (8 of them) will get a book each. At present, BRANDO is planned next, then VINCENZO (his family call him Vinnie). Ricardo is the Don, Brando is the hitman for the family, while Vinnie is in a rock band with his twin Dominic. There's also a brother who's a priest (Silvio). Luciano, Valentino, and Salvatore are the other three. Valentino is also a hitman, but has a different last name since he's the result of an affair his father had with a prostitute.
