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....

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.

Petrea really ramps up the suspense!

fraud, caves, murder, friendship, psychopath, suspense

***** Kat is usually very smart and a bulldog at rooting out fraudsters, but she's hampered this time because her best friend and also her own rat of a boyfriend have been taken in by a world class swindler/murderer. Lots of suspense and tough situations made worse by the idiocy of the boyfriend but mitigated by her uncle. There are also a lot of interesting historical facts hiding among the fiction. A very tense but excellent read!
Petrea Burchard really ups the ante with her compelling narration!
I requested and was very lucky to receive a free audiobook. Yay me!

Great suspenseful thriller!

Blowout
Katerina Carter Fraud Legal Thriller Series, Volume 3
By: Colleen Cross
Narrated by: Petrea Burchard
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. This book is very suspenseful because all through the book the reader knows the "billionaire" is a scam artist and cold blooded murderer and she can't convince her friends as they are trapped in a yacht. Great characters and plot!! I would get rid of that boyfriend!
Narration was excellent! She made the story even more suspenseful!

Another intriguing mystery for Kat to unravel.....

Blowout is the third in this exciting mystery series starring Katerina Carter, a forensic accountant and fraud investigator. Rather than tackling a professional case, in this third outing, Katerina must solve a mystery that hits much closer to home. Kat and her boyfriend Jase are planning a romantic/working getaway to an island in the Puget Sound when her childhood friend Gia stops by to introduce her new boyfriend. Rafael is a seemingly wealthy and charming billionaire. Trained by her profession to be suspicious, Kat takes an immediate dislike to Rafael and questions his motives, especially when he offers the use of his yacht to take Kat and Jase to their island. Suddenly, Kat's romantic weekend includes Gia, Rafael, and her Uncle Harry.

Although I figured out pretty early in the story Rafael's true identity, it was fun watching Kat put the clues together to arrive at the same conclusion. She is hampered in her efforts by the entire group, all of whom are captivated by Rafael to the point of giving him thousands of dollars to invest in his company. Adding to the intrigue is the history behind the island they are visiting for Jase, a reporter, to research a story about both a former cult from the 1920's and a possible buried treasure. I really enjoyed the interplay between Jase, Uncle Harry and Kat, and my only complaint was that Gia refused to see sense until the very end, but even that conflict added to the tension level and kept me listening.

Petrea Burchard's narration is wonderful. She narrates all three books in the series, so she is truly the voice of Katerina Carter. She differentiates extremely well between the characters, and I especially enjoy her portrayal of Uncle Harry. I would definitely listen to more audiobooks that she narrates and/or that Cross writes.

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

Another intriguing caper

Hot on the heels of Game Theory, Katerina Carter is at it again, sorting the wheat from the chaff. She is usually aided and abetted, and occasionally hindered, by her boyfriend Jas and her Uncle Harry, and this adventure proved no exception. I felt for Kat in this book; her friend has been duped by a conman, who has also managed to turn Jas and Uncle Harry's heads. So much so they never even noticed when she got left behind in the cave. Kat behaved way better than I would have done; I'd have killed Jas! Kat goes about building the case with solid evidence before confronting her doe eyed friend, boyfriend and uncle. Thank goodness they finally listen or we might have had a very different outcome. Another intriguing and multi-layered puzzle solved expertly by Kat. Phew! The author notes at the end of the book were very interesting and much appreciated. Excellent narration from Petrea Burchard.

Kat doesn’t miss a thing. She is a bright likeable character. She’s going to get better with each story as we get to know her more & shes great now.
This story highlights fraud & how anyone could be taken in & taken for a ride.
They also research a cult & it’s ways. Which was true & weaved into the story. Which was really interesting.
A great story, lots of details & great to listen to.
Narrator was great, she carries the story along fab, tempo was great & I thoroughly enjoyed this

The best one yet

The third book in the Katerina Carter series and in my opinion the best one yet! Kat has to rescue a friend from a charismatic conman despite fierce opposition. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the story revolves around Kat’s circle of friends and family rather than a soul less multinational company.
