Take a large dose of intrigue, double dealing, and deception in equal measure, add complex characters in complicated relationships, and you have Mindy Mejia's thoroughly enjoyable corporate suspense, Strike Me Down ... Mindy Mejia brings it big time with this compelling kick boxing themed mystery. It's a knockout!
The sometimes brutal, bloody world of kickboxing makes an effective and unusual backdrop for this superb thriller from Mejia ... Mejia smoothly couples an intense look at three distinctive characters with a twisty, unpredictable plot. Along the way, she succeeds in making even accounting exciting.
Mejia’s narrative crackles with obsession, greed, lust, and plenty of ambition, and it’s loaded with more twists and turns than a spy novel. She obviously did her research into the visceral world of competitive kickboxing, and there’s plenty of territory left to mine in the surprisingly interesting (at least the way Mejia writes it) world of forensic accounting. Readers will hope to see more of the unconventional Nora Trier ... A compelling and breathless page-turner.
