What you need to know before your trail

Gianluca has to admit his life is empty so, in search of serenity and a deeper purpose to his existence, he flees to Italy, to the magical Palazzo Montelimone, lovingly restored by his parents, to assess his future.
But life on the sun-drenched Amalfi coast is not as peaceful as Luca anticipates. The palazzo is filled with his mother’s eccentric friends and haunted by the ghosts of its murderous past.

He meets a woman whose dark eyes are heavy with sorrow and a solemn little boy with an incredible secret.

As he begins to unravel a mystery that has its roots in a long-ago act of violence, Luca is forced to face his greatest fear in exchange for the greatest truth.

Travel Guide

The Amalfi Coast


Sadly this village and the Palazzo which forms the major part of the novel are fictional. Still, great to have an excuse to go and stay somewhere on the Amalfi Coast to see if you can find where it might be!

A small fishing town which the characters are told they’ve probably never heard of. Bill and Romina have bought Palazzo Montelimone which used to be a ruin and they bough ti ti to return i to its former splendour.

“Once you start digging in Incantellaria, there’s no telling what you’ll uncover.”
What is there to expect in Incantellaria?

“Magic, miracles and wonder”

The south of Italy is full of superstitions and Palazzo is possessed by a special kind of magic
