The citizens for their own reasons & of course a whole lot of unscrupulous individuals were wanting the government to not have any more control over certain illegal drugs cannabis, cocaine & heroin.
Freyja Maria Brynjarsson (twin, 24, fashion photographer) lived with her friend Mallory (model) in the condo Mallory’s dad Nathanial Leach bought for her.
Freyja met with Carly Sloan (Sloan Gallery) at Smart Mouth on displaying 6 of her prints in Carly’s Gallery.
In the wrong place at the wrong time Freyja looks in horror at the destruction the protest march had caused to the town/streets. The army reservist told her this area was off limits.
Freyja starting taking pictures of the dead (6)/wounded, helicopters above, total pandemonium & other atrocities.
Stephanie & Bob meet with Major Whitman about what happened in/on the city streets.
Martinek Vasek (Marty, illegal drugs, extremist, former Canadian Special Operations Regiment, Afghanistan), Linda Wong (leader People’s Democratic Party, Member of the Legislature) & of course Freyja (Free) are on their list for PPL of interest.
Freyja family was having a birthday bash for her & Arni (twin, Lorenzo, gay). An unexpected surprise guest suddenly shows up Martinek (Marty) Vasek. Low/behold he was a childhood friend of the 2/family.
Later Stephanie & Bob met with Freyja & wanted to know ifs/whys about the pictures she took as well as the whereabouts of Martinek Vasek.
Freyja checked her memory bank in the camera & the pictures were gone?
More bad news Freyja goes to the condo & Gurdave (security guard) won’t let her in. He hands her an envelope; Notice of Foreclosure on the property & an Eviction Notice.
Freyja calls Martinek & later meets Linda Wong.
A cot in Marty’s office was her room for now.
The next morning she looks at a copy of the The Raincoast Record her pictures/name are plastered all over the front page. Freyja knew who gave them up to the newspaper. A $500 check & a business card was in an envelope for her.
Bruno Brynjarrson (Bjorn, brother, aka BB) is taken to Vancouver General. Dr. Harper tells Freyja, Marty & Carlotta (Momma, CanTex manufacturing, sciatica) he has an onset of HIV/AIDS (pneumocystis carinii pneumonia; PCP).
Weeks later what will the The Metro headlines read?
What other news does Freyja have to tell the La famiglia?
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Italian family political crime book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great La famiglia crime suspense movie, or mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free book (ARC, Author)

Freyja Brynjarsson is a young freelance photographer from an Italian/Icelandic family. She accidently finds herself in a right place at a right time, in the middle of a riot when soldiers open fire on protesters. Her photos start a series of events leading to the downfall of the current government and consequently members of her own family.
This is a very good and well written book. The story has multiple layers - there are political issues, family problems, relationships, interesting dialogues and descriptions. It is obvious that the author knows quite a lot about photography and how to handle a camera. Moreover, the story was easy to follow, yet there were many twists and a whole range of unique characters including criminals, gay people, former priest and dangerous politicians.
Definitely a book to recommend!
