She must solve the case-her career and Liberty's survival depend on it. So does her life.
“Exit Strategy is a fantastic first in a thriller series by debut author, Colleen Cross. I had an immediate affinity for protagonist, Katerina “Kat” Carter, who is a forensic accountant ironically down her to last few pennies. When she takes on a questionable case because she desperately needs the money, she learns the hard way that when something smells, it’s probably rotten to the core. We’re talking blood diamonds, arms trading and more. Kat is a tough cookie, but she isn’t exactly Arnold Schwarzenegger – is she in over her head? Cross draws the reader into this smart financial thriller with skilled expertise, providing just the right amount of action and surprising twists to keep the pages turning.”
-- Karen Cantwell, author of the Barbara Marr Murder Mysteries – Take the Monkeys and Run, Citizen Insane, Silenced by the Yams
“An international tale of diamonds, danger and disappearance, Exit Strategy gripped me from page one and kept me flipping pages long after I wanted to be asleep. Kat is a cool heroine - quirky, compassionate, and killer smart when she gets down to business. I love this combination of fast-paced adventure and human frailty.”
--Robin Spano, author of the Clare Vengel Undercover Novels – Dead Politician Society, Death Plays Poker
