Her thrills kick into high gear with her latest mystery, FORMULA: Another HELL Ranger Thriller.

Gina Fava I'm finishing the next novel in the HELL Ranger series. After that, I'm involving Mara Silvestri in another dangerous mystery. So, please stay tuned!

Graduate student, Mara Silvestri, meets her love interest in much the same way that I met my husband, while studying abroad in Rome, Italy. Also, every riveting scene that plays out in this fast-paced mystery is based almost entirely on real life events. From skiing off a cliff in the Swiss Alps, to being chased down and shot at by the Italian Secret Service in the streets of Rome, to joyriding in a borrowed Venetian gondola, to ducking out of an opera in search of a plate of tortellini and romantic conversation--these things really happened! But to what end? It's a mystery...(less)

"A baby is kidnapped while the parents are next door.

Mayhem ensues.

It’s a captivating story, I’ll admit. At first, at least. Then, it becomes too convoluted to keep its realism.

So the story isn’t bad per se. If you don’t mind crazy, nefarious scenar" Read more of this review »

Author wove a good tale, but it felt more like it should have been a short story, not a drawn out novel. Tedious. Unrealistic at times. The present tense was off-putting.
