Publisher's Summary

Someone is siphoning funds from billionaire Zachary Barron's currency hedge fund. Intent on prosecuting the thief to the fullest extent of the law, he hires Katerina "Kat" Carter, the best forensic accountant in the business, to follow the money trail. Both are shocked when it leads to Zachary's father, Nathan. 

And he's just the tip of the iceberg. 

Nathan belongs to a shadowy organization with global ties and unimaginable resources. They already control the banking industry and the media, but their ultimate goal - the collapse of the global currency market and a new world order - will soon be within reach. 

The organization learns of her involvement and sends a warning. She knows it will be her last - others who have tried to foil their agenda have met with violent deaths. 

If Kat walks away and keeps her mouth shut, she'll look over her shoulder for the rest of her life in a world she'll scarcely recognize. Ignoring the threat makes her and everyone she cares about a target...or a potential traitor. 

Still, as Kat Carter knows all too well...the greater the risk, the greater the reward. 

And there's no hedging on this bet. It's all or nothing. 

Who's in?

Wow!!! What a book!

Game Theory by Colleen Cross is the second book in the series featuring Katerina Carter, whom is a forensic accountant. I loved how this book is both a standalone listen and part of a series. This book has several endearing characters and several despicable ones. I thought the author wrote the character of Uncle Harry in a very sensitive manner. Alzheimer's is such a horrible disease, and so difficult to deal with. Katerina and Jace are also favorite characters of mine. I really enjoyed how the author wove several stories into one in this book. I had never really thought of elder-abuse before listening to this book, and the financial implications/consequences. Regarding another aspect of this book, the Ponzi scheme. The author wrote the details with such believability that I could see how people fall for them. The currency manipulation was another aspect that is very scary when one thinks about it. Petrea Burchard performed this book fantastically. I love how she gives distinguishable voices to the various characters. I could envision so many things with the vivid imagery in this book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. Blowout by Colleen Cross is the next book in the series.

WoW!

fraud, Alzheimer-victim, embezzling, international-crime-and-mystery, thriller

Her mother, and now her uncle were struck down with the horror that is Alzheimer's, and Kat is afraid of losing her supportive lover the way her own father ran out on them. Enter a high profile divorce case which leads to investigation of embezzlement, high finance machinations, and world finance manipulation. Add in a psychopathic killer who turns out to be Kat's cousin and you have the complex thriller that is this book which drew me in and kept me reading! Great stuff!
I have the audio narrated by Petrea Burchard who excels in this multifaceted read.
I requested and much to my delight received a free audio copy of this book. Thank you!

Even better than the first............

Game Theory is the second book in this series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. In Game Theory, Katerina Carter, a forensic accountant and fraud investigator, is tasked with solving two crimes. The first has global financial implications and the second has heartbreaking personal implications. Kat is hired by the manager of a multi-billion dollar investment fund to investigate possible fraud. This leads Kat, with the assistance of her reporter boyfriend Jase, into all kinds of adrenaline fueled situations. Kat also drags her Uncle Harry with her on all of her adventures because he is suffering from seemingly rapid onset Alzheimer's. While trying to cope with her mentally unstable uncle, look for her kidnapped boyfriend, and even getting kidnapped herself, Kat also searches for the culprit behind her uncle suddenly being robbed blind and saddled with unexplained debt. No only does she deal well with the debilitating results of dementia, but the author also pens an interesting and thought-provoking mystery with just the right amount of family and relationship drama.

Petrea Burchard narrates the first book in the series, so the continuity is great. Especially since she does such a terrific job with the narration. Her delivery is smooth and flawless, and she uses the right amount of emphasis for every mood of the story. I highly recommend this audiobook and the first book in the series, too.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

My favorite in the series

This was one I quite liked. The use of the two stories made it interesting and kept me hooked more then the others in the series. I even thought that my 102 year old Nan would enjoy this one. A simple read like all in the series with good narration but definitely my favorite of the four.

Game Theory - Book 2

Katerina Carter is a forensic accountant. Hired by billionaire Zachary Barron's to give evidence in his divorce proceedings at first, than to look into fraud by Zachary's father Nathan, Kat finds herself uncovering something much large.

The book also tells the story how Kat juggles her private life with her working one. A lot has happen since Exit Strategy. Uncle Harry’s life has changed dramatically and it now seems he has Dementia. The return of Hilary, Harry's daughter who cheated him of his life's savings many years ago.

A gripping story where each chapter leaves you trying to guess what happens next but you always fall short. Well done!

I love Cross' thrillers

she did it again. Colleen does a wonderful job creating a story that's believable in everyday life and taking you in a ride while reading it. Petra does an amazing job bringing each character to life with different voices so you know who is talking. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Intriguing, mysterious and sensitivity

Game Theory is a book that is intriguing and suspenseful. I became hooked into the storyline very quickly. I loved how the author dealt with the subject of Alzheimer's in a sensitive way it was very impressive. The storyline was mysterious and very well written. The narrator Petrea Burchard was excellent. The characters were endearing and relatable.
