Wasp's Nest--Giveaway and Review

                                                         Wasp's Nest (Roma Series Book 2) by [Valjan, Gabriel ]
About the book (provided by IRead Tours). . . 
In the highly anticipated sequel to Roma, Underground, Bianca returns to the U.S. for her former employer, the covert organization Rendition, to investigate Cyril Sargent and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. Although ambivalent about the assignment and uneasy about her online “friend,” Loki, she is enticed into researching what Sargent is doing with insect genetics that might upset the world of cancer research and treatment. Old friends Farrugia and Gennaro uncover a twisted conspiracy from their past and join Bianca in Boston where they will experience conflicted loyalties, question allies, and confront uncertain enemies, as they’re drawn into the wasp’s nest.

“Again, Valjan successfully conflates multiple sophisticated narratives that bring the past and present together, which the archaeological theme of the last novel also helps accomplish . . . Black is back and just as entertaining as ever.”
—Kirkus Book Reviews

“…a compelling reading, action-packed and with intriguing characters. The plot had plenty of twists and turns, some surprising secrets, and it kept me on the edge of my seat, guessing until the very end.”
—The Book Junkie

And I Thought. . . 
A fast paced thriller. And I loved the cover!  The story is action packed and filled with suspense.  Wasp's Nest book two in the series brings characters from book one back and allows the reader to become involved with the story and the characters.

Book one takes place in Roma.  Book two is set in Boston.    As in book one the author really includes almost a tour of Boston.  Alot of the story is centered around an Italian restaurant in Boston.

Bianca (Alabaster) returns to her former employer Rendition to investigate a Pharmaceutical company that is doing research to develop a treatment for cancer.

I have to admit that I was a little bogged down by this part of the story line.  There was a lot of
scientific information especial in the beginning that was relevant to the story but difficult to comprehend and tended to be over my head causing me as a reader to struggle through the story.

The story is filled with twists and turns and will keep the reader on the edge of the seat.
