The Hand of Fate, a popular radio show, has just lost its host due to a poisonous gas. In the city wide panic that follows his death finding those responsible become a top priority for the triple threat group of friends- an FBI Special Agent, a crime reporter and a Federal Prosecutor. The three friends band together to find a killer, understand the motive and overcome a betrayal of a team member.
I enjoyed that the story took off running. I liked the fast pace of the beginning of the book. The chapters are labeled with the setting for each chapter, which helped me following along better. I enjoyed the way that the three women’s careers interwove with each other and each was an important part of the plotline. The ending was a little abrupt but was a decent twist in the plot.
I found the novel to have a good overall message and was careful to weave in the message within the story without hitting you over the head with it.
I had not read the previous triple threat book and felt that I was missing some pieces of information that would have been helpful in fully understanding the characters, but the book was still enjoyable without that information. While I didn’t find it a major page turner, I would recommend it to someone looking for a mystery with constant action and characters that you grow to like.
