I started this book yesterday and couldn’t put it down. What a thriller! In the times that we are living in, when terrorist plots using biochemicals are a very real threat, where left and right wing extremists exist and cause harm, the events in this book are not too hard to imagine happening.

The book is fast paced, action packed, not one boring moment where you want to put it down and go find something else to do for a bit. The 3 friends in the book, Cassidy, Allison, and Nic are believable an

A vocal radio host is killed in studio, leaving three heroines to find the killer. Jim Fate spent his hours on air bringing his listeners to a froth with his extreme views and uncanny ability to poke his finger right into the middle of a hot spot, no matter which topic. Loved and hated, the list of suspects includes half his hometown city of Portland, Oregon. It’s up to Cassidy (TV crime reporter), Nicole (FBI agent), and Allison (Federal Prosecutor) to get through the suspect list while dealing ...more

Recommends it for: All, Fans of CSI, Bones, Law & Order
Como el resumen dice mucho sobre la historia, me saltaré esa parte e iré directo al grano :) ME ENCANTÓ! Soy fanática de los programas de detectives: CSI NY, CSI Miami, CSI Las Vegas, Bones, La Ley y el Orden (menos del Mentalista que me aburre a más no poder), así que una vez que tuve en mis manos el libro, no pude hacer menos que leerlo. Reconozco que lo abrí por curiosidad, pero me enganchó desde la primera página, sobre todo por que sus capítulos son cortos, la historia fluye con rapidez, au ...more

This is the second in the Triple Threat Series by Lis Wiehl.

While I'm not a fan of crime fiction, I did find this book entertaining and enjoyable, though certainly not a mind blowing sure-to-be-a-classic book.

The story line was well conceived, from an author who has worked in the field of talk media, with some of the biggest names in radio and TV broadcasting (if the reviews from her famous friends are any indication).

The investigation was intriguing, thou

Jim Fate is the name and face of his radio show, “The Hand of Fate”. Jim’s favorite past time is attacking the government and reading his threat mail on his radio show. He picks out the best ones and reads them on the air in what he likes to call his “Nut of the Day”. It seems that Jim might have taken things a bit too far this time. A package arrives and inside it is a canister of poisonous gas and Jim quickly dies.

A friend introduced me to the site BookSneeze, which offers free books to those who are willing to write reviews of the offered works. Turns out my first assignment was a crime thriller. Though not my usual preferred genera, I found Hand of Fate to be gripping from beginning to end.

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 ther

When Jim Fate, a controversial talk show host, opens a package that contains poison, his death puts his town into a panic. As citizens fear a terrorist attack, Allison, Cassidy, and Nicole work together to find the person or group responsible for the death of Fate, who had made many enemies with his brash opinions. Will they find the person responsible before their own lives are in danger?

While the mystery aspect of the novel was interesting and fast-paced, my favorite part of the book was the c

Lis Wiehl's second mystery/thriller holds its own, but it still isn't quite as good as the original. Despite that, anyone who liked Face of Betrayal will probably also enjoy Hand of Fate.

Pleasant, interesting tale. Some God references but won't bear ya to death with it. Very nice narration and recommended.
