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.

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.

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!

A modern day thrill ride

If you had told me this story line, I would have said it will never work! I would have been wrong. The author has wound the story lines together to create a seamless fabric that one follows along almost with out realizing! Multiple lives, stories and events play out in a few short weeks, leaving the reader breathless and on the edge of thier seat!
Ms. Burchard does a great job narrating, the voice of each character is easily recognizable thus making the tradition between storylines easy to navigate! Well done!

very good, better than the first

Another solid book from Colleen Cross. This book sees Kat solving a possible embezzlement, but I enjoyed the other story in this book, the one with Kat and her Uncle Harry, not forgetting of cause Hilary who is rather scary. Want to know who Hilary is? you might want to read the book.

This book is suspenseful, emotional , exciting. I enjoyed this book more than the first, Exit Strategy (even though that was good), I think the details of the characters are more developed and as I also just finished the first book recently they are fresh in my mind.

Very good narration, the same person as the first book. I received a copy of the audio book in exchange for a review.
