Can kidnapping a sick woman alter the course of a nation?

After stepping off the corporate treadmill, Clint finds love to last a lifetime in Beth, who is recovering from kidney failure.  When she blows off their date and misses her dialysis session, Clint suspects she's been kidnapped.  In spite of the mounting evidence, her family refuses to call the police.  They have their reasons, but without routine dialysis, Beth won’t survive. 
While Clint pursues every lead to find her. Beth’s dilemma draws the attention of spy trackers at the CIA investigating a computer system breach.  Someone launched an unauthorized mission.  Was it terrorists? Or someone more sinister . . . 

Will Clint find Beth before her kidneys fail? Or will her abductors pervert the justice of a nation? 


Wow, just Wow! . . .I enjoyed every word, paragraph, page, and chapter. That says it all. 
From start to finish this was pure energy ! 
Very enjoyable and thought-provoking.
High voltage reading
Couldn't figure who done it til the end!! Great ending!!
If you are a cozy lover STAY AWAY. This book is for heavy hitters.
The author brought three separate sub stories together in a seamless fashion
Couldn't Put it down. It took twist and turns like you wouldn't believe. 
You think you had it figured out and the next thing you know something else popped up. 


All my stories intersect, so your favorite characters in one novel may reappear in a completely different series—Doug Bryant and FBI agent Claudia Seagal chase an assassin in OCEAN OF FEAR. Clint Masters makes a rare offer to Baxter Cruise in SPIDER GAMES. Vonda Creevy trusts Kurt Meyers with her misfortune in DARK POOL. Mine is a single story world, where storylines and people cross into other lives. Consequently, my books could be read either by series or by the order in which they were written, so I’ve included both lists:

The Masters CIA Thriller Series
   3 LIES

The Cruise FBI Thriller Series

The Fender Hacker Thriller Series

I love suspenseful and thrilling books and this one is now at the top of my favorites list! The story line was catching from the first chapter and kept me waiting for what was going to happen next. While the main character Clint Masters, was the forefront of the story, the other characters were ever present and very well played out, so you never forgot where their roll came in to factor. With the presence of the CIA, Supreme Court, kidnapping, personal life drama and terrorists, this was an awesome read, with a great twist and mystery to keep you guessing until the final pages. Fantastic first novel! Can't wait to see what this author has next!

Flipping back and forth chapters about the lead lady, her guy, and the CIA. All eventually comes together. Light read, mystery, treason, betrayal, and love. A bit hard to understand the love tie as it was not developed before all heck broke loose. I did like the book.

I recently had the pleasure of reading 3 Lies by Helen Hanson. Right from the start the reader will be reeled in: hook, line and sinker. We meet Beth and Clint who happen to be a new couple. They provide each other stability in this crazy world. Clint is going through a divorce that he so desperately wishes would just hurry and end. Beth must receive dialysis three times a week in order to save her kidneys. They are a breath of fresh air for each other and things look promising. But when Beth is kidnapped and her dialysis machine left at home, Clint must face his feelings and discover the truth in order to save her life. Throw in Clint's soon-to-be ex-wife bringing some life altering news, friendships that may not be what they appear, and masked men bringing threats and you are left with one wild ride. Ms. Hanson's writing style is very likable and easy to follow. If you are looking for a great espionage thriller then look no further and read 3 Lies because you really can't go wrong. This book is suitable for most ages.

I gave it three stars because the ending was a little lacking.  After all the energy  Put into finding the female lead I felt a few years in the future would have been a more satisfying epilogue. A good read though......not great!!!

I picked up 3 Lies on a referral from a friend, and had 'met' the author online. The plot sounded right up my alley, and from page one I was not disappointed. Clint Masters is a tech entrepreneur who has removed himself from the busy lifestyle that entailed, and finally settled down with a new girlfriend Beth, a young woman who requires daily dialysis. This medical condition comes into play right away in the story as she is kidnapped by a group of men intent on using her and several other hostages to blackmail the Supreme Court into a favorable decision on a major case. That's the most I'll give in terms of details, as it doesn't reveal much more than the blurb. The story itself is excellent. Well thought out plot twists, end of chapter cliffhangers, accurate technology, behind the scenes looks into the CIA and terrorist groups, and really well written characters. The pace moves forward at a great speed; not too fast as to be stilted, yet not too slow to be boring. It was most certainly a keep-reading late night book for me, one of the few that's done that for me. Kudos to Helen Hanson, as she has pulled off a masterful and believable suspense thriller. I can honestly say 3 Lies was one of the best, most enjoyable, most well-edited books I've read all year. I can highly recommend it to any thriller fan. Definite 5 stars.

This book is very well written. Story grabs you right from the start and never lets go. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Characters are well developed and interesting, whether they're good guys or bad guys. I found myself really invested in their adventures and interactions with each other. Love them or hate them you will care about what happens them on the next page or in the next chapter. Very little for the grammar police and spelling sentinels to complain about. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author. Thanks Helen for an extremely enjoyable read that kept me up til the wee hours tonight so that I could finish. Bless Louie for being the sweet puppy he is! Love Merlin for his common sense and true friendship with Clint. Hope Vonda and Maxine have been happy after their story and litte Emmie has all the love and attention she deserves.

I loved this book and the manner in which it was written . I'm generally a person that reads a book in a week or two. I read this in about 4 days. It was very entertaining and would love to see it made into a movie!
