The virtually continuous abuse of females in our society compels some to debate and impels others to act. Every father must protect his daughter-and all of our daughters need protection. Niccol˛ CÚrvantÚs de'Conti began his career as a New York City Prosecutor and rose to become the United States Attorney in New York. He then entered private practice at a prominent, New York law firm, The Union and Metropolitan. Years before, Nick de'Conti's college-age daughter, Elspeth, was kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered. The system he trusted failed him. He reverted to the base instincts of his youth in inner-city East Harlem and murdered his daughter's killers. As a result, de'Conti is recruited into FATA!, a secret society of wealthy, middle-age men (The Protectors) and admiring young women (The Communicators), that avenges the deaths of females lost to violence (The Lost Ones). FATA! stands for Fathers Against the Abuse. de'Conti becomes prominent in this cult of grieving fathers and the sisters of young women murdered by predatory men. de'Conti and his cult accomplish in the darkness of the night what law enforcement cannot achieve in the bright light of day.

About the author (2011)

Nicholas Borelli, a New England based author, has and continues to write the de'Conti series.The novels currently include FATA! The Act of the Avengeance, Let No Man Be My Albatross, A Convoluted Defense, The Machiavelli Imperative, At Last Reconciled and Dahij.These works feature the protagonist Niccol˛ CÚrvantÚs de'Conti. Mr. Borelli has conceived and developed a central character based on his knowledge of and first-hand experience with the gritty New York inner city of his youth. Nick de'Conti is an ethnic mixture of Basque and Southern Italian. He has a penchant for independent thought and action, and a passion with which he approaches everything in his life. He is a prominent lawyer, an aristocrat. The arc of his life is developed from the depths of his childhood poverty in East Harlem in the cruel, inner city streets of New York City to his unimagined success---albeit troubled, conflicted and, at times, ethically bereft.These novels are edgy, raw, graphic and thought-provoking.Although de'Conti is a former New York City prosecutor and United States Attorney, his hard life as a child in the inner city of East Harlem sometimes causes him to mete out as much street justice as he does the legal kind. He abhors the abuse of women, his own college-age daughter having been murdered at the hands of male predators. He will revert to instincts he developed as an inner city kid, even though he lives in a Fifth-Avenue penthouse on a high floor across from New York's Central Park.
