Summary

Money can buy many things...

But can it purchase a permanent solution to divorce?

Martin Cantrell would like to know the answer to that question. He has money, respect, and power, but he also has a monthly alimony payment that’s making him miserable. When a friend offers to deal with the “ex” problem for a fee, he can hardly say no. Time is of the essence. The life insurance policy on his ex-wife expires in less than two months.

Unaware of the plans set in motion, Special Agent Megan Luchek goes about her business as usual, only now, she finally has an excuse to dress up on the job. She’s been asked to go undercover to check out some banks. One of the branches just happens to be managed by Martin Cantrell’s ex-wife.

What’s an agent to do when a perfectly peaceful morning turns into a hostage-taking standoff?

Money Makes It Deadlier

A rich man that thinks he's above the law sets into motion what he was warned he could not take back. And due to an expiring insurance policy he must get a move on the contract. Special Agent Megan Luchek is assigned to go undercover and investigate a series of local bank robberies. This is where the cases will over lap and things start to go terribly wrong for Martin. Be prepared to grab book 2 to continue this story. The narration is nice and easy to listen to!

Fast paced and exciting!

Don't let the length of this book deter you! Julie C Gilbert has packed it full of excitement! Megan is an FBI agent and is going undercover. Things don't always go as planned, so when she gets caught in the middle of a bank robbery, quick decisions have to be made to save lives! I really enjoyed his quick listen. Gilbert has created a great story of deception and greed with a twist I did not see coming! Surprises like that make the story so much fun, I can't wait to hear the next installment of the Shadow Council! Liz Brand does a great job bringing it all to life, adding the surprise and shock value right in!

Clean light suspense

Great start to the series. This suspense is not too intense. A quick read and leaves just enough untold to lead to the rest of the series. I really enjoyed this book and the narrator.

Action packed and surprising

Megan Scott has just been assigned to go undercover to watch out for a bank robbery. Martin Cantrell wants to permanently stop paying alimony. Seems a strange way for these two lives to intersect, but the bank that is being robbed is owned by Martin's ex. Megan is just trying to prove her worth as a Special Agent. She takes on this job with seriousness, and a little fun as she gets to dress up like she was rich. As they are in the bank scoping it out, the robbery happens and everything you thought you knew, changes. I loved the twists in this book. They kept me on my toes. The suspense and excitement kept me listening until the end. Liz Brand narrated this very well. Liz has an easy to listen to voice. She was able to keep all the character's voices distinct and easy to follow. Liz Brand enhanced the overall experience of this book through her narration.
