Set in Chicago, between early 1900 and the 1940's, Whisper in the Blood is a novel during that period when Irish and Italians were especially biased toward each other. Vito Savio, a poor Sicilian immigrant, is struggling to provide for his family when one of his sons gets entangled with "The Outfit", and Vito is thrown back into a life left in the old country.

In Irish Bridgeport, Meghan Callahan, Lace-Curtain Irish and an imperious Druid, marries a successful lawyer. She loses herself in an unhappy marriage by foretelling the future, practicing mind control, and performing mystical rites of the ancient Celtic world.

Like clashing cymbals, the two families, with their conflicting cultures and prejudices, are thrown together when their children fall in love and declare their desire to marry.

Whisper in the Blood intertwines a compelling tale of suspicion, greed, passion, lust, and betrayal, and explores whether destiny can be altered or if the whisper in the blood conquers all.

Honor in the Blood, s. h. montgomery’s second novel, is packed with murder, obsession, love, and ambition as the saga of the Savios and the Callahans continues. The Savio sons live on the edge, becoming more involved in the Chicago Outfit, while Michael Callahan courts disaster when he reunites with Ireland Coogan. Vito Savio and his nemesis, Meghan Callahan, are once again in conflict, this time over grandson, Kane, son of Francesca and Fin. Before Kane can even talk they are vying to mold him in the direction they want him to go----Vito’s life of crime or that of Meghan’s Druidism. Torn between the grandparents he loves, living in a household of dissension, and growing up on the streets of Chicago, Kane struggles. Will he choose to side with one of his grandparents, or will there be another choice that he’s forced to make?
