Antonio Brassea was born in the U.S. to Italian immigrants from a small, mountain town in Northern Italy who came to American by ship in the early 1900’s, and were three (with Antonio's older brother Gianni) of the thousands who passed through Ellis Island, New York.  While growing up Antonio developed a love of art, but unfortunately due to family and personal tragedies and obligations, obtaining an education in it was not possible.  But that never stopped him from privately continuing to create his art.

I read a story on the Web today that touched my heart.  It made me smile, and it made me cry.  It also made me angry.  I smiled because I love animals.  If I could, I would adopt every orphaned animal on the face of the earth and toss those who abuse animals in a bottomless pit.  It made me cry because  though they had been rescued, and lived a long and comfortable life together, as babies they did suffer from the hands of someone who I hope has suffered everyday since they were removed from his home.  And it made me so angry that someone would do something harmful to them at all.  Look at the pictures, look at those sweet faces, the depth of love in their eyes, and you will understand my feelings.    I mean, look at them, they are so heartwarming, they're family, they love each other, just as people do.  How could anyone not love them back?

This is the first book of a great series.  Murder, humor, tears and lots of edge of your seat twists and turns.  If you love James Bond and Dirty Harry, with  maybe just a tad of Colombo and James Rockford thrown in for good measure, you will absolutely adore “Beau”.
