It’s my turn on the BlogTour Arbitrage by Colette Kebell. It’s a fast-paced financial crime with a flashy, turbulent feel to it.
About the Author
Colette Kebell is an eclectic author, though a relatively new one and thus far has self-published her books. Her books are light-hearted, fun and quirky and even considered by some to be inspirational.
She publishes mostly for the English speaking market and the Italian one. Colette Kebell does not stick to just one genre when writing though, as you shall discover from her latest book to be launched on 5th April 2019
As a career, Colette spent her later years as a legal secretary. After a first attempt at writing many years ago (a book that still remains in her drawer) she resumed this passion a few years back, after being made redundant. After few book signing events and a book talk, which almost caused her to collapse with nerves, Colette now spends her time between her home in the UK and her home in France.
Colette has two adorable dogs and, when not writing and marketing her books, she likes cooking for herself and her husband, gardening or designing various items for their home. Amongst her other hobbies, she has also experimented with furniture upholstery, and she might, from time to time, have a paintbrush in her hand.

Arbitrage is a fast-paced, stand-alone financial thriller. If you like edge-of-your-seat suspense, sweet revenge, and twists and turns you won’t see coming, you’ll love this eye-opening look into the world of financial crime.
Can a burned out lawyer outwit an army of con artists and killers?
The story starts with a violent collision between criminals and a man trying to out-steal the people who are ripping others off. Their reaction is volatile and fatal. Then the author takes us back in time to where the story within this story begins. Where the fate of certain people is already set in stone, as the events unfold that lead to Logan planning his revenge.
For me this is a story about a slow-burning and complex plot to get revenge. Pay back for a lost love, lost life and lots of lost time. Is there ever any kind of vengeance that can compensate for that?
The Amelia and Anders story took a bit of an unexpected turn towards the end. Superfluous to the plot, but an endearing extra just slid in there for the heck of it.
It’s fast-paced with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader on their toes. It definitely has a flashy, turbulent feeling to it. Very bright lights big city meets tab-end flicking brutal gangsters..
It’s a financial thriller with a modern financial mob crime vibe. Financial crime has changed and perhaps become more of a reflection of our times than other criminal endeavours. The internet, the new inter-connectivity and the way financial crime is often the culmination of other layers of crime, is reflected in this story.
