Publisher's Summary

Nine months ago, Audra Tanner exposed the hidden secrets locked away at the prestigious accounting firm of Winscott & Associates. No one escaped her wrath. And once the smoke had cleared, everyone watched as the diabolical Olin Kemper was led away in handcuffs. Now Audra's meticulous revenge has thrust her into the role of managing partner. But the firm is struggling to survive amidst the turmoil and media attention surrounding the shocking arrest and upcoming murder trial of Olin. And Audra must face the fallout left from her explosive revenge while trying to heal and recover from the trauma of her past. Audra thought she had ended the evil lurking within and that her revenge would set her free. Unfortunately, it's only the beginning. Because evil never dies, it only assumes a new form. Soon everyone at the firm will discover that no one is safe when you are dealing with a psychopath that has zero balance.

Great second book in thrilling series!

Any additional comments?

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!

Excellent Story of Revenge and Suspense!

If you could sum up Zero Balance in three words, what would they be?

1. EdgeOfYourSeatExcitement
2. SupsensefulPageturner
3. UnforgettableRevenge

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it most definitely did keep me on the edge of my seat and lingering on every word. You get to know the characters inside and out. Vividly. Their thoughts and actions.

What about Sara Morsey’s performance did you like?

I like the way Sara Morsey is able to change her tone and feel for each character with a distinct and chilling ease. This is so well done!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Audra is my favorite character but Piper. Wow. Piper is so frightening and realistic.

Any additional comments?

I love this series and savoring every part of it. It's such a thrill ride. It keeps getting better and better. I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
