Swindler’s Revenge: A Karina Cardinal Mystery
by Ellen Butler

I love this series because the plot moves quickly, the dialogue is snappy, and there’s not a lot of backstory to slow things down. The author knows when to bring in the history and when to leave it alone.
~Mysteries with Character

Ellen Butler has a firm grasp on the concept of an adventure story. She metes out the twists and turns with great skill.

There are no softball cases in the FBI…especially when an agent gets dirty.


Karina Cardinal’s Saturday starts out with a bang, and it’s not the home renovation marathon she’s watching on HGTV. It’s the FBI banging on her door, hunting for a fugitive. As if she could easily hide one in her modest condo. Especially one named Mike Finnegan.


The two of them called it splitsville a couple months ago, but Mike? Take a $1.2 million bribe? No and no and no. No matter how much damning evidence the feds claim to have. When a mysterious burner phone shows up in her pocket, Karina has no doubt who dropped it there. Mike is deep undercover and so far off-grid, he needs help to figure out who’s framing him—and why.


Classic Karina, she jumps in with both feet, ignoring the dangers. The trouble with leaping before you look? You can land in a world of dirt. And when an old enemy starts playing hardball, you can end up six feet under it.

International bestselling and award-winning author Ellen Butler presents book five in the Karina Cardinal mystery series! Fans of Elizabeth Peters and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum will adore this gripping mystery adventure.
