D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review


“The President of the United States is female, successful, and beloved – and has been kidnapped. Moral and ethical issues arise and create compelling conundrums for different characters, suspense is tempered by an unexpected dash of humor to keep things fresh and unexpected, and issues of domestic terrorism and its impact will captivate contemporary readers who like their action and plots realistic and representative of some of the central social and political concerns of modern times… Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C. is a top thriller genre read precisely because it doesn’t hold true to staid and predictable characters or outcomes, but builds many a satisfying surprise into events as they transpire and build to a exquisite, well-crafted and tense climax.”

The Hungry Monster Book Review


“Follow the unexpected twists and turns of this mind – catching novel. Edward Galluzzi leaves you on the edge of your seat. His use of imagery and vocabulary captivates the audience and places them directly in the hair tingling situations. Friendship, Love, Sacrifice and Duty are all highlighted within these pages… As stated previously, the twists and turns of this novel keep the reader consumed. The mind is constantly trying to skip to the next scene to find out what happens. I personally found it to be a quick read simply because I had to know what happened next.”

Glenda Bixler of Book Reader’s Heaven


“Galluzzi begins his novel in Rome,where Harrison, the President’s personal body guard, is preparing for his wedding to Hannah, a journalist for the Washington Sun. It’s a wonderful little story in itself about Harrison being personal friends with Pope Josetta–Josetta having saved Harrison’s life before he had his name changed…and, of course, he had many assigned interactions on behalf of the President. It is a time of great happiness looking forward to his marriage, but also a great sadness for Harrison because the Pope is very ill. In fact, Harrison and Hannah are scheduled the next day to introduce Hannah to the Pontiff.  It is, indeed, Harrison who is the main character in the book–there are just a few scenes where the President even appears… and that, shall we say, set the whole hierarchy in Washington abuzz! I’m not even going to go into…Why? The only hint is the novel’s title..”
