I listened to 3 CD's out of the 9 and I had to stop. I just got bored. Leo had his drama at the beginning and he seemed to have his family tied around his finger. Bea, did she have control of the family or did she just like to think she did? Anyways, I heard enough that it just wasn't keeping my interest for a third of the book being completed. Moving on....."
This is the second book in the Roma Series. Bianca is back, this time in Boston, to investigate Cyril Sargent and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. She will be researching wasp's and what the company is doing with them. The research is for cancer research which is great, but of course the big pharmaceuticals don't want cancer to be cured because it would mean a huge loss in revenue.
Bianca's friends Farrugia and Gennaro are also back to let Bianca know that there is an assassin gunning for her. She is also working with her secretive online friend, Loki, who she still does not know the identity of, just online.
To return to Boston meant leaving her lover, Dante in Rome. Returning to Rendition, a secretive agency, meant sacrifices for her but this was what she loved to do, bring individuals to justice. We meet new characters, police detectives and owners of restaurants, and a former lover of Bianca's also turns up, the reader also gets to learn more of italian cuisine, my favorite part.
There is a lot of scientific and technical material to wade through but this is important to the story. Lots of twists and turns that make a great thriller, keeps the reader guessing until the end. There is a lot to like in Mr.Valjan's writings and I look forward to the next books in the series.
This review is written voluntarily.
The Wasp Nest is a complicated scheme for what you learn from this. There is a professional assassin out the kill a few targets. We also meet some new friends along the way. Again who is Loki? What does Rendition want?
We are back in the United States with Bianca. Her friends show up in a few days laters. Things go from okay to creepy. This book really gave me the creeps and still was good. I enjoyed it none the less but think you can not be creepy out by how it goes.
I am still trying to figure out who Loki is and what exactly Rendition wants her to do. She seems to get the help she needs from this computer person who is named Loki. I will tell you there are lots of deaths. I believe we will see more in the coming books for they seem to all running though Roma Underground.
We find out more about Sergeant and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. I do not want to give away much here for it really bring to life and what this book is about. The author did have me confused, but I also enjoy the story along they way. How are Garnero and Farrugia past involved in this all of this? We meet a few new characters and find new friends. There seems to be a connection and something else also know as corruptions.
