Giù dai ghermiti scanni,
Razza maligna, inetta,
Che fra venali inganni
Pompeggiandoti abjetta,
Raccogli infami frutti
Dal disonor di tutti!

Ah! non bastò di questa
Patria incestare il seno?
La veneranda testa
Premer di giogo osceno?
Offrir nudo il materno
Fianco al barbaro scherno?

Ond'ella, a regnar nata,
Con tremulo ginocchio
Segue, putta spregiata,
Il tenebroso cocchio,
Su cui breve fortuna
Due manigoldi aduna.

Misera, e invan tu speri

When Micheal Maxwell isn't travelling the world with his wife, you are most likely to find him somewhere between Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. If you do, and you have a chat with this interesting man, take care - you might just end up in a scene of one of his books! Maxwell loves writing character-driven mysteries about everyday people, books with heart that readers can relate to. In this interview, Maxwell reveals how Diamonds and Cole was inspired by a song, how he created Cole Sage and talks about his writing habits.
