It is now 9 months after the end of Accountable to None. The protagonist Audra Tanner is now managing partner of the accounting firm Winscott & Associates. The evil former managing partner Olin Kemper is in jail awaiting trial for murder. Business has suffered from news of two major partner who committed murder. Audra and the cop who arrested the old partners have started a relationship.
Twists and turns occur frequently in this series as does very intense suspense as a crazy female former partner returns determined to free Olin Kemper and kill everyone she considers his enemy. Warning: this series is dark, extremely violent, rather profane, very fascinating and addictive. Author Ashley Fontainne has a devious mind! Narration is excellent; however, this series would be better with both a female and a male narrator because it is written in the first person of both female and male characters. Audible classifies this book as a legal thriller. It is not; it is a suspense thriller.

Zero Balance is the second book in the Eviscerating the Snake series by Ashley Fontainne. In the first book, Accountable to None, we are introduced to the employees and partners in the prestigious Arizona accounting firm of Winscott & Associates, where the unspeakable happens daily by Olin, the managing partner, and everyone turns a blind eye to his torrid acts. Not anymore. Our heroine, Audra, puts an end to Olin’s tyranny and he is now behind bars.
Zero Balance begins one week prior to Olin's trial. Audra is now managing partner at the firm and dealing with the aftermath of shacking things up with the firm, including dealing with clients who are bailing over the scandal surrounding the firm. The remaining partners at the firm begin to retaliate against her seeking their own vengeance.
Ms. Fontainne does a very good job of summarizing the first book at the beginning of this one. So, it is not necessary to listen to the first one beforehand to understand the story. She also does an excellent job of getting into the mind of Piper, a mentally unstable former partner.
Like in the first book, Sara Morsey’s narration was excellent. She portrayed Piper as a truly demented individual, while at the same time bringing out the calm and stress in Audra. I can’t wait to listen to book three!
