A Sinister Crime Lies Deep Beneath The Water… 

A Katerina Carter Fraud 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 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, the third book in the Katerina Carter Fraud Thriller series, appeals to crime thriller fans of James Patterson, John Grisham, and Michael Connelly.

My Review

Another fantastic book by Colleen Cross, the third in the series with Kat Carter, fraud investigator. Check out the reviews of the first two books, here and here.

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.
