Diavolino is Italian for little devil - and the name was enough to fill the locals with dread for centuries. Then along comes a millionaire with plans to build a fabulous house on the mysterious islet in the middle of Lake Trasimeno. His architect, Tom Lupton, jumps at the chance to take his wife and young daughter to live there while the job is done, but little does he know what lies beneath the island, and what dark secrets the locals keep. As the opposition to Tom and his family grows we are taken on a roller coaster ride which leads to the doors of Hell via The Vatican in Rome. Bizarre weather, volcanic eruptions and creatures conjured up from ancient legends wreak havoc across the country as Tom races against time to wrest his friends and family from the clutches of the evil Clavelli.

Diavolino has received exceptional reviews, many of which are on Amazon and Goodreads, from professional and amateurs alike. The York Press compared Steve Emmett to Stephen King - but then so have others. Steve has his own writing style but admits to being influenced by King, Clive Barker, John Lindqvist and Dennis Wheatley. Steve knows Italy well; he lived there for ten years and it has been part of his life for more than twice that time. With succinct prose he brings the places alive - the sights, the sounds, the smells and, above all, the people. Diavolino the novel is populated by strange characters, some to make the reader smile, some to make the reader hide behind the sofa.

If you enjoy a fast, thrilling plot, a good Gothic horror, and fancy a trip to Italy, you should enjoy Diavolino. Available in eBook and paperback.
