Riveting!

Well-written tale of murder, greed and betrayal! Twists and turns hold your attention to the end!

Petrea Burchard did an excellent job of narrating! Knew her characters well.

Follow the Money

greed, embezzling, diamonds, murder, suspense *****

Follow the money.
Never get complacent.
Blood diamonds are cursed.
Forensic accounting is waaaay above my pay grade, and I wouldn't even know how to follow the kind of money trail that's in this book. But reading it is a different story, the suspense just kept building! Even when I realized that I was in over my head, I just couldn't stop and research like I usually do because I just couldn't put it down! A real thrill ride.
The narrator extraordinaire is Petrea Burchard and she adds to everything.

AWESOME!!!!

Exit Strategy by Colleen Cross is so much more than I expected. I was immediately pulled into this book featuring Katerina Carter. I was really intrigued with the stock trades and diamonds, without divulging too many details. The author wrote financial crimes so realistically, its scary. I loved the twists and non-stop action. The imagery is fantastic! I was so surprised and satisfied with the ending! I cannot recommend this book enough. Petrea Burchard performed this book flawlessly. She is so easy to listen to and adds the right emotions to the scene. Her distinguishable voices for the various characters is also great. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series. This book is a standalone listen and the start of a new series.

Great tension

This story had a lovely depth of complexity to it, at first it seems Katerina has been hired to do a simple investigation but it soon becomes apparent that there is far more going on than it first seemed.

The character development is incredibly well done all of the characters feel real and they all have complex thoughts and motivations. I loved Katarina, she's strong, stubborn, and driven, and as things he's up and what information comes to light she's not prepared to walk away even when that's the easy option, even when that's the safe option.

Driven by the complexities of human motivation and human greed this book hold my attention from the first minute to the last.

The narration was well done, the character voices were clear and consistent. The tone and pace of the delivery worked well with the tone of the book.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

good start

good start to a series

I am not as demanding for first books in the series. I look for the ideas and to see if they're good or not. I give books the benefit of the doubt even if they're not amazing. But if they are good i feel like i discovered gold because its the beginning of something good

This book makes accounting seem exciting........

I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing mystery by Colleen Cross. While a person doesn't normally associate the words thriller and accountant in the same thought, Kat's profession as a forensic accountant certainly did just that! This mystery starts out at with multiple story threads, and the author slowly knits them all together into a thrilling adventure. This book kept me guessing on exactly what was going on with all the players until the very end of the book. I especially enjoyed the supporting characters of Cindy, Jase and Uncle Harry.

Petrea Burchard did a great job narrating. She differentiated well between the different characters, and she infused the voices of the "bad guys" with menace. The recording/sound quality was excellent, and I hope Audible brings more of this series to audio. I received a copy of this audio book from Audio Boom and the author in exchange for this honest review, but I would listen to book two if it is produced by Audible.

Intriguing

This was an intriguing, action packed suspenseful story. Katerina Carter is a forensic accountant and is hired to find money stolen by an executive of the company. Little does she know she will come into contact with mobsters, conflict diamonds, organized crime and even murder. There is a lot of detail included in this story describing the financial aspects of accounting, including money laundering, stock exchange, etc. It also goes into a lot of detail describing the world of conflict diamonds. Though it is educational it is at times daunting. I did however enjoy the story very much and thought the narration was excellent. Petrea Burchard did an amazing job with all the voices and made listening to this book an enjoyable experience. I received a free copy of this audiobook, however I voluntarily submit this unbiased review.
