Indulge yourself in a world of intrigue, drugs, murder and the criminal underworld in Peter Oredsson's The Sicilian Favour! The human condition is brought very much into sharp focus with the author's defining characterisation which demonstrates the twin governing principles that often dominate in life, fear and greed. A clever plotline weaves all the threads together resulting in an unexpected and impossible to predict conclusion, linking together seemingly unconnected people with dramatic and devastating results.
The Sicilian Favour! has an international setting and is a compelling tale which will keep the reader's attention to the end via a mix of horrible fascination and personal empathy with the plight of some of the main characters. For those readers that believe in luck both good and bad and fate, there is a liberal sprinkling of all of these too as the plot twists and turns through to its dramatic ending. The Sicilian Favour! Is a real page turner from an established author who knows just what it takes to keep the reader's attention.
Peter Oredsson was born and raised in Hässlehom, Sweden. He completed only nine years of compulsory schooling with marks well below the average standard. This forced him into hard labour jobs in different factories. At the age of only sixteen years, he moved away from home and became self-sufficient.
As a twenty-three-year-old, Peter migrated alone to Australia. He did not have a great knowledge of the English language, but that did not stop him from finding gainful employment and a wife who blessed him with two children.
He had natural tendencies towards sales and marketing and persuaded a multi-national industrial company to employ him as a technical sales representative. This created an interest in further education and, after seven years at night school, he graduated with a degree in business, majoring in marketing.
This provided him with the opportunity to mix with the business elite around the world as a Marketing Manager, Global Sales Manager and Managing Director. He also acted as a marketing consultant to many major international companies through his own company.
The Sicilian Favour is Peter's third published book. His previous books Blood-Line Incursion and Peeta Oreda and the Power of Numbers are works of children's fiction and they were published in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
