Summary

Spies, military secrets, and a personal crusade for freedom....

Rome, 1942.

Cordelia Olivieri is a determined young hotel owner desperate to escape Mussolini’s racial persecution. But as Fascist leaders gather in Rome, Cordelia is suddenly surrounded by the world’s most ruthless and powerful commanders.

In an effort to keep her Jewish heritage a secret and secure safe passage out of Italy, Cordelia forms a dangerous alliance with the British army who want to push the Axis out of North Africa once and for all.

Going undercover, Cordelia begins obtaining and leaking military intelligence to a British agent, hoping the intel will secure her freedom. But the more Cordelia uncovers, the greater the risks—especially for one handsome German Afrika Korps officer.

How far must Cordelia go to protect her identity and secure passage out of Rome?

Great read from an exciting new author

The beginning of the book interested me greatly as my father fought at Tubruk and was stationed in Cairo and Alexandria and he used to tell me about how he spent the war chasing Rommel up and down the desert, so it drew me into the story very quickly.

I found the story to be fast paced. All aspects of the human phyche can be found here. Love, hate, fear, cruelty and hope.

The characters are very believable and well written and the plot is well thought out. Even though Lucifer’s Game is a work of fiction I could imagine it happening in real life. I can imagine that many hours of research were carried out before pen was even out to paper.

As an avid historian, I knew very little of what happened in Italy during the war and Lucifer’s Game has left me wanting to find out more about this subject.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to Ms Loggia’s next novel.
