Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl with April Henry

Revenge? Hate crime? Terrorist attack?

Opening with murder by mail, Hand of Fate grips the reader in a quickly paced story that revolves around the death of radio talk show host, Jim Fate. Three women, Prosecutor Allison, Special Agent Nicole and Crime Reporter Cassidy – previously united in Face of Betrayal – work together to unravel the mystery. But could one of them be holding back critical information?

I confess to being skeptical of the endorsements on the cover. Pulse-pounding? Major twists? Delivers big? We’ll see.

I’m glad to report that it’s true. Wiehl’s second Triple Threat Novel does deliver big. From the first, I was never quite able to form an opinion on “Whodunit?” I would decide who had not done it, only to revise that opinion further into the story. With a well developed plot carried through with great writing, Hand of Fate definitely goes on the shelf to be read again. Highly recommended.
