Oliviero smiling, “Galletto, give these two pigs the shovels.” He turned toward the two shaking men, “You two, start digging. Make sure the holes are nice and deep. We don’t want your stench around us.”

“Mr. Bernardi’s novel, “THE RELUCTANT PATRIOT”, is like having an insider’s view of the personal challenges experienced during Mussolini’s reign over the Italian countryside. The characters come to life in this spell-binding book from beginning to end.” Roger Mohr, Lake Forest, IL
“Edward Bernardi continues to investigate the inner significance of his Italian roots in his second visit to his Apennine ancestors at the end of the Second World War. KILL THE DEVIL TWICE conveys the deep attachment many of us attach to our own families’ arrivals in the United States since the beginning of the last century. It is moving, beautifully constructed and will involve the reader with a true accounting of the author’s commitment to his family roots.” Carky Rubens, New York.
