Book Review: Hand of Fate
When a popular and opinionated radio show host is killed by a poisonous gas reminiscent of a terrorist attack, three women are drawn into the investigation of the crime. Through their search for clues each of the women, an FBI agent, a crime reporter and a Federal Prosecutor, faces her own personal crisis that affects how she handles her part in the investigation.
Written by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, Hand of Fate (A Triple Threat Novel)reminded me a great deal of the work of James Patterson without the unnecessary graphic content. At first I was afraid it was too much like Patterson, and that would be distracting. But, by the third chapter, I was completely drawn into the story. The plot is well developed and suspenseful, moving along at a good pace, and the characters have depth. One problem I tend to have with crime stories is predictability, but not so in the case of Hand of Fate. I'm glad I had carved out some "me" time because once I started reading I couldn't put it down.
I'm off to find the first installment, Face of Betrayal (A Triple Threat Novel).
I was provided with a free copy of this title from Thomas Nelson Publishers to review. The opinions in this review are my own, and this disclosure is in compliance with Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
