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.”

“It is even more to Gabriel Valjan’s credit that with Threading the Needle he, as an American, was nonetheless capable of unusual insight into the Misteri Italiani, the Italian Mysteries, without taking any prejudicial standpoint, one way or the other, or putting the blame on anyone, but rather inviting readers to judge for themselves.”
—Claudio Ferrara, Italian journalist and translator

“But after the first few pages, I knew I was committed to the end of the book ... and would be reading the two earlier books…Characters, plot, ideas, background: In Threading the Needle, Valjan weaves it all into an international crime novel worth the read.”
—Beth Kannell of Kingdom Books, a specialty mystery bookshop in northeastern Vermont.

About The Series (from the authors website)  
A "wicked smart" forensic accountant.  A covert government agency.  A complicated romance. A gang of friends that helps solve puzzles and uncover truths.  Rome, Boston, Milan, Naples.  And lots of great food along the way.
The Roma Series features Alabaster Black - living in Italy under the alias Bianca Nerini.  She has left the employ of Rendition - a shadow agency that recruited her years ago to uncover certain truths about white-collar criminals they targeted - and punished in their own way.

And I thought ...
Threading The Needle brings us back to Italy with Bianca (Alabaster) and friends.
I’ve enjoyed the first two books in the series so I was delighted to read along in these adventure’s with book 3 in the series Corporate Citizen 

Bianca and friends delve into a terrorist plot in Italy.  The fast paced story begins
with a murder and keeps on rolling from there. 

Bianca is reunited with her boyfriend and other friends as they begin to uncover
Murders, conspiracies, and thrilling suspense that will keep you turning the page.

Threading The Needle along with the other books in the series gives the reader a delightful
tour of Italy.

Threading The Needle is a great fairly ‘clean’ read with a few words and some
violence but not graphic.

I look forward to reading Book Four in the series. 

I received a complimentary copy from Italy Book Tours.

This book is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble
