Author Gina Fava Rolls Out Thriller Sequel, FORMULA, at the Height of Auto Racing Season
By: Gina Fava
In Formula, a sequel to her first HELL Ranger novel entitled The Race, F1 champion and covert agent Devlin "Lucky" Lucchesi returns to the Monte Carlo Grand Prix to win big, and a rival F1 racer is fatally poisoned at the finish line. Devlin and his HELL Ranger crew suspect tainted grappa and investigate a winery built atop a hotly contested aquifer in the Italian Dolomites. Things heat up fast when the killer begins targeting the vineyard's sibling owners one-by-one. The stakes soar when that bloodlust menaces world leaders at a global water summit in Verona and the thousands gathered at a Palio horse race in Siena, including Devlin's son. Devlin must risk everything to hunt down the killer in time to halt a poisonous calamity that threatens worldwide ramifications. It's sure to please fans who love Daniel Silva, Joseph Finder, and Dan Brown novels.
"Formula promises the wicked adrenaline rush of a shot of grappa. With robust characters, fast-paced action, and a hot-button topic of global proportions, I believe this mystery will keep readers guessing to the end," Fava stated.
J.M. Leduc, Amazon bestselling mystery author of the Sinclair O'Malley series says, "Strap in. The HELL Rangers will take you on the ride of your life with Formula. With twists and turns from the first page to the last, Gina Fava races to the head of the pack." Sheila McCormick, author of Cousin Andrew agrees, calling it "[An] electrifying mystery…with [w]hirlwind pacing, breathless action, a sexy hero, and a tough but stunning heroine." Stephen Besecker, author of The Samaritan and Executive Power, also endorses the work, saying, "Fava not only has a unique talent for storytelling, but it's obvious too that her meticulous research brings credibility, depth, and real beauty to this novel that will undoubtedly satisfy both men and women."
Fava plans a pre-launch tasting/book signing at Jamie's Fine Wines & Spirits on Halloween weekend in Duxbury, MA, followed by a virtual launch of the book across social media on November 15, and a hometown Buffalo signing at The Bookworm on November 24. Additional book signings and events will take her into winter.
