Swindler’s Revenge by Ellen Butler is a crime mystery book that everyone can sit up with.
In the FBI, there are no softball cases, especially if an agent gets filthy. Karina Cardinal’s Saturday is off to a fast start, and it’s not because of the HGTV home improvement marathon she’s watching. The FBI is knocking at her home, looking for a fugitive. As if she could simply conceal one in her small apartment. Particularly one by the name of Mike Finnegan. A few months ago, the two of them dubbed it Splitsville, but Mike? Accept a bribe of $1.2 million? No and no, respectively. Regardless of how much proof the feds claim to have.
When a strange burner phone appears in Karina’s pocket, she has no doubts about who put it there. Mike is deep underground and so far off the grid that he requires assistance in determining who is framing him and why. Karina does what she does best: she dives in with both feet, oblivious to the hazards. What’s the problem with leaping before looking? You have the option of landing on a planet of dirt. And if an old foe begins playing hardball, you may find yourself six feet beneath it.
I loved this story and the concept of it as well. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is the first book by this author and I can’t wait to read more.
