Exit Strategy- A Katerina Carter Psychological Legal Thriller
Out of work and running out of money, private investigator and fraud expert Katerina Carter desperately needs more clients or she’ll be forced to go crawling back to a cubicle at her previous firm, a fate worse than debt.
So when Liberty Diamond Mines CEO Susan Sullivan hires Kat to find Liberty’s missing CFO and a large sum of embezzled money, she’s eager to accept the job. But her excitement soon turns to terror when two company employees are brutally murdered.
Kat realizes that this investigation is much more dangerous than she had ever imagined when she uncovers a sinister connection between blood diamonds, money laundering, and organized crime. She races against time to expose the crime, but will the cartel get her first? Her first case just might just be her last.

Good characters, good interaction, good read!
Fast paced book dealing with forensic accounting, cartels, conflict diamonds & a cast of characters that will keep you guessing.0
Plot interesting, characters need word.
I may try another book or two in the series—if only to get more information about the cast from this book. While the author explains the financial and banking terms thoroughly, the character development and backstory was really lacking. Her relationship with Jace—ex boyfriend she buys a house with but no explanation why they are exes. Her best friend is an undercover detective, yet Kat acts clueless to that seeing Cindy working undercover. Uncle Harry was introduced, and his system that “didn’t make sense”, several times, was a little redundant. Aunt Elsie gets thrown in towards the end only to tell a story that just so happens to be involving the very subject matter Kat is investigating. We find that Kat grew up with said aunt and uncle more than halfway through the book without any explanation. The author adding Verna to the mix is confusing as well.
I found myself a little irked at the main character Kat with her “unorthodox” methods.
Edit: missing a quotation mark at the end of sentence in the last page of chapter 25.
