A Katerina Carter Legal Thriller

Private investigator Katerina Carter is struggling to cope with her uncle’s dementia when she lands the biggest case of her career. Yet everything has a price…

When billionaire Zachary Barron hires Kat to investigate a possible embezzlement from his currency hedge fund, she uncovers a connection to the secretive and powerful World Institute, a global company that’s hell-bent on controlling governments and even the world’s financial markets. And the deeper she digs into its shady business practices, the more she finds herself caught on the jagged edge of a dark betrayal, unscrupulous corruption, and ruthless violence.

With her loved ones lives at stake and her career hanging in the balance, Kat must make the hardest decision of her life: to protect herself and those she cares about most. Because the sinister World Institute will stop at nothing to keep their secrets from being exposed.

Now Kat is playing a deadly game against an enemy who never loses, takes no prisoners, and threatens her own life…

    Ponzi thriller

    Family problems and global fraud make this story interesting and entertaining. I learned a lot about Ponzi schemes. It shows the author knows her stuff.
