Thank you @atriabooks for my gifted copy of “Strike Me Down” by Mindy Mejia!
From the critically acclaimed author of “Leave No Trace”, the nail-biting page-turner that grabs you early & never lets go comes a visceral thriller where a high stakes crime triggers a woman’s complicated & potentially deadly search for the truth.
Nora Trier catches thieves. As a forensic accountant & partner in her downtown Minneapolis firm, she’s unearthed millions in every corner of the world. She prides herself on her independence, the most essential currency of accounting, until her firm is hired by Strike.
An anti-corporate, feminist athletic empire, Strike is owned by Logan Russo, a brash & legendary kickboxer, & her marketing genius husband, Gregg Abbott. They’re about to host a major kickboxing tournament with twenty million dollars in prize money, & the chance for the champion to become the new face of the company. Gregg suspects his wife already has a new face in mind—a young trainer named Aaden, for whom Logan feels an unexpected connection.
Days before the tournament begins, it’s discovered that the prize money is missing. Gregg hires Nora’s firm to find both the thief & the money but Nora has a secret connection to Strike that threatens her independence. Her partner pressures her into taking the case anyway, hinting he has information about Strike that could change the course of the investigation in a shocking & deadly way.
A tense & unpredictable thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page, “Strike Me Down” reveals the remarkable power of Mindy Mejia’s writing which crosses back & forth between exquisite literary descriptions & thriller-esque escapes & acts of violence.
