What I really appreciate is the level of authenticity that her previous career lends to the fiction. The way Kari thinks, talks and reactions is just so genuine because the author has really been there and done it. That level of intimacy can not be achieved with mere research or creativity.
If you like the book, definitely check out her amazing podcast: “FBI Retired: Case File Review”. She invites retired FBI agents to talk about their most interesting and notorious case.
There are three stories going on – that of the criminal, the victims and the FBI agent. There is an excellent story line about how a criminal can delude himself that he isn’t all bad and it’s the circumstances that made the crime and not his own nature. It is a first-rate account of how easy it is to justify slipping into the life of crime when it is disguised as a helping hand. The author has an uncanny ability to make the reader actually feel sorry for the criminal. The second story line shows how easily a victim can be sucked into a Ponzi scheme when it is mis-presented as an opportunity to do good deeds. The overwhelming devastation a victim experiences when realization sets in resonates in a world that has experienced so much loss from the financial sector. The third on-going story line accurately and sympathetically portrays the life of a very capable FBI agent within a typical family/marriage made up of active children and caring adults who also make mistakes. Very well done.
I recommend this book.
