This who-done-it begins with the murder of a controversial talk show host in his own broadcast studio room. The author takes three friends on a roller coaster ride of suspicion, fear, secrecy, and paranoia. First there is the question of whether Jim Fate's death was an act of terrorism or premeditated homicide. If the former, what group would commit such a horrendous act? Or is it more likely the latter, as those offended by his broadcast opinions could form a line around the city; perhaps twice over? The prosecuting attorney, the FBI agent, and the crime reporter set their course to uncover the truth. Little did they know their journey would take them on a dangerous journey of discovery beyond the act itself, revealing a motive none of the friends (nor this reader) predicted. Wiehl's story took place in the city of Portland, Oregon; of which I'm well familiar. The places and details were spot on, increasing my enjoyment of the author's work. Although initially apprehensive about reading a crime novel, I found I could not put this down. Hand of Fate was truly spell-binding from start to finish!

"We are hearing that KNWS on Salmon Street is the epicenter of the event. There are reports that some kind of gas leak or possibly a deliberate release of poisonous gas occurred there, and we have unconfirmed reports of at least one fatality" Cassidy Shaw reporting live from downtown Portland. Last year, Fox News Legal correspondent and former federal prosecutor Lis Weihl teamed up with mystery writer April Henry, together they created a knockout. A powerful suspense political thriller. Face of Betrayal. The book was a great concept, something fresh and new, a well written thriller combining two different writing styles, and most of all, making a great page turner. The second installment of The Triple Threat series " Hand of Fate" was a very promising encore. However; it did not deliver the thrill and suspense as "Face of Betrayal". Having said that and giving a positive review to the authors, Hand of Fate was a good read. The plot was very simple, a talk show host, Jim Fate gets murdered, and it is up to the triple threat to find out who killed him. From reading the inside of the dust cover, the book seems to promise a great plot, along with a great twist, specially when the words "betrayal and personal" among the triple threat are mentioned. I read the book, but it was hard at times to follow the main plot, the story was developed in the basis of a terrorist attack, without any connection to Jim Fate. It is true, that it was used as an introduction for his murder to get more interesting, but even so, the writers carry both stories together for too long in the book. In the previous book, the authors did a great job developing the three main characters, they were all brought to life early in the book. In the second installment, the authors do a follow up on the lives of Allison Pierce, a Federal Prosecutor, Nicole Hedges, an FBI Special Agent and Cassidy Shaw, a Crime Reporter. The triple threat. The authors took a very interesting twist on Allison and Nicole, but too few chapters were spent on developing their subplots. I find that Nicole's subplot was great, but it lacked the development, and the outcome wasn't strong enough for a few chapters. Cassidy was supposed to be the main character who would drive the story, but it fell short, early in the book. She did not add the "Personal and Betrayal factor" that would have made this book great. Hand of Fate, would have been more thrilling if it had followed the format of the previous book. It was really hard to follow the main plot due to the fact that there were too many things going on, but they were irrelevant to the main plot. The placement of the characters and their story lines in the subplots wasn't strong enough. Their follow up stories should have been better, more well developed and placed early in the books, by the time their plots come to an end, the excitement has passed because the main plot has already been solved. And I also think that a reading group guide at the end of the book is not necessary, it feels like reading a textbook compared to a fiction thriller. However; I must say, the triple threat series is a promising franchise and do look forward to read "Heart of Ice".

From the very beginning this book keeps you hooked. I definitely enjoyed reading Hand of Fate especially with all its action. However, I have to admit after three fourths of the way it started to become predictable but by the end it regained strength and made for a memorable book. Even though I enjoyed it I do not plan on following up on any of the other triple threat novels. Not being a huge fan of FBI thriller novels it just seems that once I've read one I've read them all because they all seem the same. I was given this book to review by Thomas Nelson publishers and I was not expected to write a positive review nor was I compensated in anyway for writing one.

Couldn't put it down. It's a mystery in a modern setting. Written well and easy reading.

Although this is the second book in the "Triple Threat Series", you definitely do not have to read the first book to understand. I have not read the first book, however after having read this book, I will definitely go back and read the first and future editions in this series. This is a story of a very outspoken radio personality, Jim Fate, who was killed while his show "Hand of Fate" was on air. An over-whelming panic was felt all over the city, with everyone worrying about the rumors that Mr. Fate was killed by a poisonous gas and that it could be a terrorist attack. The "Triple Threat Club", which consist of three female friends - a Journalist, a Federal Prosecutor and a FBI Agent all must work together to try their best to shorten the lengthy list of suspects to determine who the real killer is. While working on that, they each have their own issues and secrets to overcome as well. This was a very easy read and I was surprised at every turn. I would recommend this book to any crime drame lover! (I was provided an advance copy of this book by Thomas Nelson to read and provide an honest review of this book. I was not compensated for my review or required to give a "positive" review.)

This book is a disappointment considering the famous names of the reviewers printed on the front and back covers, and even on the inside flaps. There are three main characters. These women have similar personalities. Nothing to distinguish one from the other. The story flips from one point of view to the next. Most of the time I'm confused as to who's thinking or speaking. More time is spent with the women's problems and heavy work loads than the actual case. One can't sleep and gets addicted to sleeping medicine. These are supposed to be intelligent women. She takes two sleeping pills and then sits in a bathtub. One is pregnant and takes a crying child home with her because she can't find the parents. And the third woman is emotionally messed up by a secret she keeps from her closest friends. They are supposed to be best friends but I guess not. The case is a murder mystery like on TV shows. Too many suspects. Too many motives. And one silly answer. I won't be reading this author again.

I have enjoyed other books Lis Wiehl has written. I so appreciate that her books do not have the four-letter words and all the sex scenes in them. My problem with this one was its predictability. I will, however, continue to read all her books.

I really enjoy suspense and I was hoping this would fit the bill. It's ok, not sure if I will buy again from this author. Her first book was incredible. This one not so much

Now you know how many police investigations go...reminded of of the Sandra Levi case when that politian from California threw off investigators looking for her killer looked like he was responsibile only to find out later he was a married guy just having an affair with a younger gal. Ohe well...those things happen...way too often. Nope Gary wasn't responsibile for her death...it was the guy in prison down the street from the Levi home that was. Not all investigations go with Hollywood movie drama potential.

I had all sorts of problems with this book reading it on the Nook. It would get hung up on a page and repeat the page multiple times, then, if you selected a later page and got there, it sometimes would page forward for 1-3 pages then go BACK to the place where it hung up and repeat the page multiple times. This book was good reading. I don't know if the experience is the electronic version or the reading device. Not impressed either way.
