Who would believe that a small diary filled with thoughts and memories of one man could change so many lives in an instant? Author Mavrik Menalus has given readers everything they ever hoped for in a mystery- lies, deception, killing, illusions and heartbreak.

Amelia Victor is living in a world of luxury, with a devoted mother and money-hungry father who only want the best for her. Yet, Amelia feels like something is missing and she can’t put her finger on it. Her mother is fragile, drug and alcohol dependent and has no back bone. Edmund, her father, is devoted only to status, money and being in control.

Enter Father Andrew McInnis, a devoted man to his religion and to those he serves. Spend five minutes with Father and you are hooked under his spell. Little did anyone know that he has many hidden secrets that will cause his downfall .  Under Father’s watchful eye and Edmund’s money, Rocco Nero is barely living due to an accident that happened many years ago while working for Edmund.

From the very first page, the reader is hooked on this book. Menalus has pulled out all stops to describe his characters, events that will keep readers on the edge of their seat. Just when you think you have figured out what is going on another sinister character jumps in to throw readers off.  Each character adds more suspense to plot of this read. Each has their own hand in deception and greed.

“Conscience and Consequences: The Diary of Rocco Nero” by Mavrik Manalus is a fast-paced mystery that will keep your mind swirling with sympathy, anger and wanting the bad ones to suffer. I guarantee you will be glad that you read this book.
