An adulterous love affair, an attempted murder . . . When aspiring real estate developer David DeVita agrees to murder his lover's bigamist husband, he sets off a chain of events that leads him to a personal redemption and brings him a more meaningful life. Set in the 1990s in Connecticut and Florence, Italy.

DEAR DANTE is a novel about dualities and dichotomies: love and lust, the carnal and the spiritual, the good and evil in human nature, sin and redemption, and the truth and falsehood of our everyday lives. All of these dual themes are woven into a compelling story of a passionate love affair and an attempted murder, told in Florence by two narrators, a young American on holiday and his older Italian confidante, a Dante scholar caught up in a marital crisis. It's a remarkable tale of love, madness and religious conversion that defies easy categorization.
