When the Devil Whistles by Rick Acker
Being a whistle blower can pay big bucks, but if you get caught it can cost you a lot, too...
Abingdon Press published this book, and I got my ebook from Net Galley for review. (Thank you.)
Allie loves her work. She does temporary jobs, turns in contractors who pad bills, and gets big money and all the vacation time she wants. However, those big employers want to know just who it was that turned them in...
Mr. Acker creates interesting, strong characters who have beliefs they don't want to compromise. However, life is not all black and white - there's always a grey area, too.
Between courtroom scenes and lawyer combat in conference and Allie digging deep into the computers of large corporations, there is plenty of action and lots of danger.
You never know what you might find if you dig deep enough...
I enjoyed this read. The story line is plausible, you develop a real interest in the characters, and you fear most of them may end up dead so you keep those pages turning.
This book will be coming out in October. Be sure to make a note on your TBR list if you like legal/accounting mysteries with unusual action in them.
