About “Threading the Needle: (taken from Amazon)
Milan. Bianca’s curiosity gets a young university student murdered, but not before he gives her a file that details a secret weapon under development with defense contractor Adastra. Guilt may drive her to find justice for the slain Charlie Brooks, but she is warned by the mysterious Loki to stay away from this case that runs deep with conspiracy. Bianca must find a way to uncover government secrets and corporate alliances without returning Italy to one of its darkest hours, the decades of daily terrorism known as the “Years of Lead.”
With a strong, captivating heroine and an allure of conspiracy and organized crime, “The Roma” series has already gained quite a following, and which with at least two more of the series already in the pipeline, looks to be continue to put the name Gabriel Valjan on the must read for thriller lovers.
