Book Review: Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl
Do you love crime dramas? If so, you may want to check out this recently released book from the New York Times Best-Selling Author, Lis Wiehl. This is actually the second book in the "Triple Threat" Series. Do not worry if you have not read the first book. I did not, and I was still able to follow along just fine.
This book tells the story of how outspoken radio personality, Jim Fate, was killed by a poisonous gas of some sort while he was on the air recording his show "Hand of Fate". In order to help solve the mystery of who, on a long list of suspects, would have killed Jim Fate, the "Triple Threat Club" steps in. The trio includes a federal prosecutor, an FBI agent and a hard-working journalist. Follow along as they try to figure out the mystery of this murder, deal with the widespread panic and havoc this murder has caused throughout the City, all while each of them also deal with their personal issues and secrets.
This was a very easy and fast-paced read for me with a surprise twist ending. I finished it in two days just wanting to know how each of the "club members" manage in their lives from day to day. I will be going to the book store to purchase the first in the series for sure!
(I received a free advanced copy of this book through Thomas Nelson publishers so that I may in turn read it and provide my honest feedback. I was not required to give any specific type of feedback other than my honest opinion. I did not receive any compensation for doing such other than the free copy of the book, which is mine to keep.)
