The first installment in the Murder by the Numbers series… A Fatal Fortune
Kate Abbott knows her numbers. From shedding light on high-profile financial crimes by day, to creating her own profitable trading algorithm by night, it’s no wonder she can’t find time for a personal life. So when she takes a break from life in the fast lane and returns home to Minnesota to run her father’s financial business, the last thing she expects to inherit is a crook for a partner. Sure, Larry Stone might have the hottest investment in town, but Kate learns he isn’t doing everything by the books. Larry has been taking money from clients for an investment that doesn’t actually exist.
Determined to find evidence of his crime, Kate goes to work uncovering the truth. Unfortunately, the first clue she uncovers is a dead body – Larry’s. But when Kate’s best friend becomes the #1 suspect, she realizes there might be more than one client holding a grudge, and that the killer might want to end her number for good.
