Review: Turning To Stone by Gabriel Valjan
Turning to Stone (Roma Series Book 4) - Gabriel Valjan

Bianca Nerini is with her trusted friends. We meet up with the group and find out that they are all working together. This is a bit different in terms that there's not much action for them all. Bianca Nerini gets in contact with Loki, and it may be that there are two Loki’s?

 

We meet an Intern that join their team. He seems to know Charlie Brooks and then Matteo is known by this TB. Who is TB? How has Farese involved once again? He seems to show up once again. Gabriel Valjan does it again. Who is really the enemy, and who are those you can trust? In this installment it about the mafia. Who might be the spiders?


Can the Gdf team figure out what Farese and the mafia are doing? What is it that Farese wants in Naples? Who is this Madrina? We do know that Farrugia is undercover and his friend is as well this Claudio. What do these clans Marra, and Totaro want to do with the Euro and does the Silicons do with the US Bonds. Will the Gdf group be able to make the connections? Why has the Commissioner assassinated? We also have agents McGrittery and Murphy that helps the teams as well.

MY REVIEW

 

The Roma Series continues in Turning To Stone by Gabriel Valjan and starts out with a BANG!

 

I am on familiar ground with Turning To Stone…The Mob. I have read a lot of organized crime novels, and Turning To Stone has everything I look for…corruption, betrayal, brutality, wholesale slaughter and assassins, female, no less. I love that twist and, for me, it doesn’t happen often enough.

 

But this is not the organized crime of Al Capone’s day. They are going legit and manipulating events through money, so be careful about investing in the stock market. LOL

 

Gabriel Valjan’s series keeps getting better and better.  The writing flows smoother for me, the pacing and suspense picking up to a level that makes it hard to put the book down.

 

Some surprising turns at the end make me realize how strong and determined Bianca and her cohorts are. They have questions and WILL NOT stop until they have the answers, no matter the cost to themselves.

 

I enjoyed Turning To Stone the most…so far…and I am so glad I stuck with the series!

Action packed with OMG moments. The brutal, tragic ending left me feeling very sad and I can hardly wait to see where we go from here.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Threading The Needle from Gabriel Valjan.

Turning to Stone (Roma Series Book #4)
Turning to Stone (Roma Series Book 4) - Gabriel Valjan

Turning to Stone is the fourth book in the Roma Underground series. We are in Naples and the story involves the Mafia. Enter a new member of the group, a young man, an intern who is very knowledgeable about the Mafia and come to find out that he knew Charlie Brooks, the young man who was killed in the previous book. Along with Bianca, Ferrugia, Dante, Gennaro, Allesandro and Silvio the story continues with Ferrugia going undercover as a member of the Camorra. The rest of the team investigates the death of a of a man, Aldo Giurlani killed in a car bomb that was thrown by people on motorcycles. A book is delivered to the team and it is up to them to figure out what this means. This book seems to be more indepth than the previous three or it is just that the plot is getting more intense. We also get another gastronomical treat with more food descriptions, more about Loki, Bianca's online friend. This part of the story kind of confuses me and I am anxious to find out who Loki is. This series is complicated but the author does a great job with the characters depictions and this tour of Italy is interesting indeed with each book getting more complex than the previous. I look forward to reading the last book in the series.

The Beauty of Love (American Wilderness Series Romance Book 6) - Dorothy Wiley

This is book six and the first that I have read. These are two people who share the pain of loss but have a soul mate in each other. Dora was only married a very short period of time and is now widowed. Edward lost his wife and children to illness and feels there is no happiness left for him. Through misadventures, theirs and Edward's sibling's, they find the strength to grab the happiness before them. I recommend this book and I look forward to reading the previous stories.

The Venus Throw - Steven Saylor Read By: Scott HarrisonCopyright: 1996Audiobook Copyright: 1996Genre: AudiobookPublisher: Blackstone AudiobooksSeries Name: Roman Sub RosaPosition in Series: 4Abridged: Noblurb - Saylor has established a fine reputation with his mystery novels set in ancient Rome and starring Gordianus the Finder, an early PI. In his fourth adventure, in 56 B.C., Gordianus is visited by Dio, his teacher of Greek philosophy 30 years earlier in Alexandria, who is now on an Egyptian delegation to Rome. Dio, whose fellow delegates are being killed, fears being poisoned; so Gordianus offers him an untainted dinner. Poor Dio dies that night anyway, stabbed and poisoned. Gordianus looks into the doings of his late teacher's companion, the eunuch priest Trygonion, who had accompanied Dio that evening. A beautiful, sex-hungry widow accuses Gordianus's neighbor, a young, loudmouthed lawyer, of murdering Dio, and she hires Gordianus to prove her charges. Saylor gives the widow a gloriously handsome, incest-inclined brother and sets his tale simmering with eroticism, adding engrossing historical filler about Roman law, politics and goddess cults. The result is a talky, absorbing brew of Rome's decay. The title refers to luck at dice.
