AN ITALIAN JOB: a novella by John Lawton and ZoŽ Sharp

An Italian Job

In case you missed it, last summer I co-wrote a novella with espionage thriller writer, John Lawton, called AN ITALIAN JOB.

'Love is deadlier the second time around.'

Ginger and Jack are both former soldiers from the Balkan wars of the 1990s. Time, chance and bloodshed force them apart.

Twenty years later, chance brings them back together—older, possibly wiser certainly richer. Jack has never married … Ginger has … And the one obstacle in their way is her ex-husband Franco.

This is a crime novella about loyalty, betrayal, love and revenge, with action stretching from the Balkan Wars to modern-day Tuscany, from the glaciers of Iceland to the deceptively calm waters of the Mediterranean.
