the-boxed-angel.jpg The Boxed Angel by Robert DiGiacomo is a thriller that spans several centuries. The book opens in 1776 with the theft of a gold box from the home of Benjamin Franklin. The book quickly switches to modern times and the adventure starts for our main character, Al Campo. Mr. Campo is a glass installer who also enjoys finding old furniture and refurbishing it to its original grandeur. Early one morning on his way to work Mr. Campo spots a sofa on the side of the road that he wants to take as one of his projects. Let the adventure begin from this moment until you read the last page. Al Campo is a very different person than the one you thought you knew when the book began. He will surprise you at every turn. The Boxed Angel has a little of everything--love, religion, espionage, ruthlessness and history. Al Campo could never have imagined the places he would go and the things he would be called upon to do when he picked up that sofa. The world would be a much changed place had Campo not gotten the sofa. Campo has ties with some other very interesting people that you will meet - that brings us to the part of Campo's past life that will be so surprising to you - considering who you thought he was. Get ready to sit down and enjoy this book. DiGiacomo is a great story teller and will keep you captivated until the last word.
