Publisher's Summary

The next audiobook of psychological suspense and obsession from the author of the blockbuster best seller legal thriller Exit Strategy

A sinister crime lies deep underwater....

A Katerina Carter Legal Thriller

On fraud investigator Katerina Carter's trip to a remote island aboard a luxurious yacht, she suspects the boat's slick and charming owner is hiding a dark secret. With her cunning instinct for sniffing out malevolent cons, Kat tries to warn her friends that something is very wrong with their host and that his moneymaking scheme smells fishy. And why is she the only one who thinks he's not being completely honest? While exploring the island, Kat and her friends research the rumors of a sinister cult, the Aquarian Foundation, and search for buried treasure. 

The cult swindled people out of their money, and now the same situation is starting to eerily echo their present circumstances. That is if Kat can prove to the others that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.... 

When Kat's warnings fall on deaf ears, she uncovers a horrifying truth that will place those closest to her in mortal danger. Now it's a race against the clock for Kat to expose a killer before he strikes again. 

Blowout is the third book in the Katerina Carter Legal Thriller series and a riveting psychological legal thriller you'll want to listen to with the lights on!

Very good,

Another fantastic book by Colleen Cross, the third in the series with Kat Carter, fraud investigator.

In this book Kat, Jace and her Uncle Harry are with a friend on a yacht , but there is something mysterious about their host. Plenty of adventures are to be had by Kat in this installment. This is a personal case as the person involved is Kat’s best friend, I did find her friend to be a little stupid though. The book is well written, very well narrated, suspenseful. A worthy read or listen. I was given an audiobook from the author in exchange for a review.

Truly entertaining

This is the second book I have “read” in this series! It’s simply fun. The characters are next door neighbor type people making it easy to get into the story! It’s an easy listen and easy to track with enough plot twist to keep one engaged! I love that this book is “clean” enough for teen readers too! The narrator has become one of my favorites with a clear crisp voice and easy to distinguish character changes!

fantastic book

This is the third book in this series and it just gets better. This time Kat and the gang are on yacht with a killer. But it seems only Kat can see something wrong. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I am yelling at Kat don't go in that cave. But does Kat listen? No. I was also yelling at the others that they should listen to Kat's instinct about their host. This is a great series and it will keep you entertained and you may get frustrated with Kat when she decides to do crazy things or when the others do not see what Kat sees and do not listen to her. I can't wait till the next book. The narrator does as great job bringing each character to life. The author has created fantastic characters. I was gifted this book at my request for an honest review.

Katerina, Jace and Uncle Harry

Blowout by Colleen Cross brings back my three favorite characters in Katerina, Jace and Uncle Harry. The author has written a highly addictive series in the Katerina Carter fraud thrillers. I find most of the characters to be endearing. I love the twists and how the author does not write the same cliche' storyline. With each book, I learn something new, which is awesome. I thought that Petrea Burchard really brought the characters to life with her performance. She gave them distinguishable voices. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will most definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series, and my favorite to date by the author.

Blowout

Kat, Jace and Uncle Harry are set to take a small working vacation for Jace's job. He is doing an extended story on a Historical Cult. Only thing do not start out as planned. First he's late then the flight get canceled so the only option left is by boat. Kat's longtime friend stops by with her new boyfriend and he offers to take them. Everyone but Kat is drawn in to him. And she's accused of biased. Only shes not. This case is more personal for everyone. And it turns out they are all in danger. I love the historical back story and the hint of treasure. It made the story so fun and adventurous. I think this may be my favorite Katerina Carter book to date! Petrea Burchard did a fantastic job on the narration.

I would read this before book 2

A Katerina Carter Legal Thriller series by Colleen Cross. I have really enjoyed Blowout, but think Blowout should be read before Game Theory.
The reason why is Uncle Harry seems to have money in Blowout.
In Game Theory Uncle Harry daughter swindles him for nearly everything his got.
In Blowout Uncle Harry is 79 years (in chapter 2 about 4.40 min in) and in Game Theory he’s 80 (in chapter 5 about 3.5min into the chapter).
It’s wonderful to have Petrea Burchard back again as narrator. Again a job well done. With each character having their own voice, as she delivers it smoothly and flawlessly.
I loved this book and would highly recommend it. I thoroughly enjoyed it again.

Charisma, Cupidity, and Gullibility

When does a thinking person become a pawn and dupe? Exploring an historic site once run by Brother XII (real historic figure!) is the goal when Katerina, Jase, and her friend Gia encounter an Italian billionaire with a mega-yacht. Keep in mind the "thriller" part of the title as things get . . . interesting! (There is an author afterword delineating history versus imagination.) Her usual charismatic vocal interpretation by narrator Petrea Burchard keeps the action flowing smoothly.

Deja Vu

Another fantastic book by Cross. What is supposed to be a getaway for Kat and Jace, ends up finding out about her best friend, Gia's new love interest. As Jace and Kat miss their ride to the Island, where Jace is writing a story about BrotherXII and how millions of people where swindled out of their money, time and even lives, Gia's new boyfriend, Rafael, says that he will be happy to take them to the island on his yacht. Rafael has the gift of gab and appears well off and treats Gia like a queen, but Jat has her suspicions and thinks he is not all he is cracked up to be. After doing some research on the yacht and a news story about a little girl and her mother, who were both found in the ocean, dead....Kats starts piecing the picture together.

Narration is once again, on point and love how she does the voices for each character
