Strike Me Down: A Novel | Mindy Mejia
16 posts | 12 read | 13 to read
From the critically acclaimed author of Leave No Trace, the nail-biting page-turner that grabs you early and never lets go (The Real Book Spy), comes a visceral thriller following an accountants complicated and potentially deadly search for missing money. Nora Trier catches thieves. As a forensic accountant and partner in her downtown Minneapolis firm, shes 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 and legendary kickboxer, and her marketing genius husband, Gregg Abbott. Theyre about to host a major kickboxing tournament with twenty million dollars in prize money, and the chance for the champion to become the new face of the company. Gregg suspects his wife already has a new face in minda young trainer named Aaden, for whom Logan feels an unexpected connection. Days before the tournament begins, its discovered that the prize money is missing. Gregg hires Noras firm to find both the thief and 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 and deadly way. A tense and unpredictable thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page, Strike Me Down reveals the remarkable power of Mindy Mejias writing which crosses back and forth between exquisite literary descriptions and thrilleresque escapes and acts of violence (New York Journal of Books).

This is definitely a different type of thriller. The forensic accounting angle was interesting, and the ending was twisty! 🙌🏻 It wasn‘t my favorite thriller this year, though. #audiobook #Libby

Some #audiogardening, getting the garden in shape for the year… Any thriller with an accountant as the hero is definitely worth reading.

This was a decent read, a different type.of thriller. Involving finances and kick boxing. It was well.laid out and I liked the multiple characters that played the three.main characters. There was some character developed for the main character but not enough to continue to engaged the reader but enough hints throughout to keep my attention.

I also finished my #doublespin pick Strike Me Down. I crossed 6 other books off of my book list. Time to add some new titles for July.

I'm not sure if I've ever been less engaged by a mystery/thriller. Characters and story line were flat. I'm torn between So-So and Pan.

Book 9 of 30 books in 30 days. This is a forensic accounting thriller mixed up with an MMA thriller. Stick with me here. I know. It‘s compulsively readable, but also forensic accounting is my personal catnip. 🤓 Its a tiny bit cheesy, but it made me want to fight white collar crime and kickbox. 🙅🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Great thriller! Fraud, fame, lies, murder (maybe?) and kickboxing; what‘s not to love? The financial aspect made it especially fascinating and the sports competition element had this meeting planner smiling at the peek behind the curtain of large scale event planning. Add in one more connection, it was set in Minneapolis, a city I fell in love with while at a large scale sports event, and I was hooked! Highly recommend!

💯 % Woman powered! Former kickboxing legend, Logan Russo, is the owner of Strike, an exclusive multi-million dollar athletic training empire. When $20 million goes missing from the corporate accounts, they hire forensic accountant, Nora Trier, to break the case. Throw in a little artificial intelligence and you‘ve got one heck of a thriller.

Bookwormjillk Ohhh that sounds good 2y

This white collar crime novel pulled me in! Forensic accounting, kickboxing, what‘s not to love? The ending, that‘s what. A little too neat and the very last line came out of nowhere in a bad way. I think I would have preferred a little bit of a messier ending. A generous ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As neither a maths person nor a gym rat, I quickly got the feel that this #Minnesota thriller wasn‘t aimed for this mystery-reader! Nora is a forensic accountant tasked with tracking down $20M for Strike, a local and internationally famous gym, kickboxing and health food company. Personal connections quickly become apparent but I never connected with any of these odd and unknowable people. I wish I had bailed on it- just totally not for me!

JoyBlue I guess I'm glad I'm not alone in disliking this one. 😒 2y
TorieStorieS @JoyBlue Sorry it wasn‘t your cup of tea either!! 2y
