I tap my fingertips against the limo’s armrest as we glide around a bend in
the coastal road that leads to my sister’s house. Glimpses of the
Mediterranean peek out from between the greenery lining the road, and
when the trees suddenly recede, I get treated to an open view of the sea
below. A vast expanse of azure stretches all the way toward the horizon,
shimmering with the afternoon sun.
My breath catches.
Cleo leans over me to get a closer look, practically pressing her nose
against the window.
“You’ve got to be shitting me,” she mutters, her voice dropping into the
well-practiced whisper we use when we don’t want our parents to hear our
conversations. They’re sitting just across from us, but we’ve perfected

That mistake probably cost him his life, although Papà’s neither confirmed
nor denied it.
It was a real scandal. The eighteen-year-old daughter of a New York City
don disgraced. Her maidenhead taken by a literal nobody. Papà had frothed
at the mouth, his anger so palpable that even his soldiers left for a long
smoke break outside. Mamma whisked Cleo away after Papà was done
