When unemployed Max Caddick made his way to Italy in 1934, he had no idea that it was the start of a connection between his family and Italy that would last into the 21st Century.
'Relative Values' tells what happens to Max from 1934 to 1943 and then to his grandson, Paul, between 1984 and 1985.
In 'Affairs of State' set in 2004-2005, Paul finds himself entangled in a web of corrupt politicians and organised crime.
Finally, Paul's nephew, Luke, is drawn into the search for a missing Libyan refugee between 2016 and 2018 in 'Unwilling Helper'.
The novels range throughout Italy from Sicily in the South to Tuscany in the Centre-North.
