About the Author
More About the Author
I was born in 1949 in Genoa, in the Northern part of Italy, and I studied political science at the University of Genoa before I was drafted and became a sergeant in the Bersaglieri Corp of the Italian Army. Later I moved to Florida where I earned a college degree in journalism. Upon returning to Italy, I began my writing career at Corriere Mercantile, an afternoon newspaper in Genoa. In 1980 I passed the State examination and became a professional journalist. Meantime I also attended the Salzburg Seminar in American Studies at the Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, Austria. In 1982 I was hired in the Genoa editorial office of the national newspaper Il Giornale, directed by Indro Montanelli, and later joined the foreign staff in the Milan main office. Back to Genoa I was deputy chief editor until the end of 2007, when I retired. At present, I continue my activity of investigative reporter.
So far, I published five books. The first was The Zanfretta Case in its fifth edition of which a television adaptation was broadcast; Alcibiades, translated from English to Italian of the work of professor Walter M. Ellis of Loyola Marymount University of Los Angeles; My dear Marion..., an historical essay about past Italian president Sandro Pertini; Over the Horizon, a collection of political essays about the life of Italian minister Claudio Scajola; The Viral Solution, a novel about the spread of AIDS in the USA (this book has been awarded both in Italy and in the States); The Orchid Shadow, a novel about the role of a mysterious Italian immigrant in the Teapot Dome Scandal in Washington D.C.; The Return of the Prince, a novel about the paranormal presence of Raimondo de Sangro, Prince of San Severo and one of the most interesting personality of the European XVIII century, in today Naples. I received the Italian National Award Chronicle of Mystery 2014. I live in Genoa, Italy.

Writing in a friendly, informal style, Mr. Stephano lays out an extraordinary panorama in which the very principles forming the structure of our society, and the protection of the individual, come into question. It leaves the reader wondering in the end, about the real play of evil versus good in our world.
If you are looking for a riveting read, its a good one!
