Read from March 20 to 27, 2012

Pretty good story, plus lots of interesting bits of information thrown in along the way. I learned about how radio shows are produced and tidbits about criminal investigation and prosecution, among other things. Unfortunately, the three female protagonists weren't especially likable for me. One woman, Alison (the prosecutor), was okay. But Nicole, the special agent, seemed a simply drawn character, formulaically frigid because - of course! - she had been victimized as a woman. And Cassidy, the TV reporter (and also a Victimized Woman™), was unethical, untrustworthy, and just plain not very bright. I gave the book three stars for the very interesting premise but aside from that, Hand of Fate did not make my heart sing. Too bad - I am a big Liz Wiehl fan in real life. She is an alumni of my alma mater and I think she's a lovely, strong, smart woman and a much-needed voice in our public discourse. Oh well, no one can be good at EVERYTHING!
