Eyes of Justice, Triple Threat Series #4, Large Print
Eyes of Justice
Eyes of Justice is a wonderful novel set in the world of criminal justice and more specifically (or geographically), in Portland, Oregon. Those two things connected me to this book. I'm a native Oregonian; it was neat to read a book where I recognized places they describe (i.e. I've visited Mt. Hood, seen the Willamette River many times, and I've definitely been to Portland as well). Also, I am very interested in criminal justice and it was cool to see three friends being involved in different aspects of it. Nicole Hedges is an FBI agent, Allison Pierce is a federal prosecutor, and Cassidy Shaw is a crime reporter for Channel Four. They call themselves the Triple Threat. Eyes of Justice is actually the fourth Triple Threat novel but it's the first one that I've read.
One of the three women is killed near the beginning of the book. This sends the other two into grief and a search for justice...even if that means breaking some rules. While I don't condone breaking the law, their loyalty and willingness to risk everything for each other is admirable.
In the past, I haven't read "crime" books (but I have watched TV shows in the genre) so it was very interesting to see how they described things such as a crime scene, an autopsy, fingerprint analysis, etc. in writing.
Who killed one of the Triple Threat...and why? Read Eyes of Justice to find out!

Fast paced and exciting, this next chapter in the Triple Threat series is well worth the read! I loved it. The story line was well developed with some shocking twists and turns which left me breathless at times. It makes me think about people in the public eye Ã¢ÂÂ how they are always being Ã¢ÂÂwatchedÃ¢ÂÂ. The current characters are an interesting bunch Ã¢ÂÂ different in almost every way Ã¢ÂÂ but able to maintain a deep friendship. They have each others back. New characters that are introduced are quirky, fun and with a purpose of seeing justice done. I can not wait for the next installment of this fantastic series.

Kept Me Guessing
Eyes of Justice by Lis Wiehl is the fourth installment of the Triple Threat series. While Cassidy, Nicole, and Allison have joined forces to solve cases before, one of the Triple Threat becomes a victim and the others will have to look past their personal grief in order to solve this crime.
As in other books in the series, this is an incredibly suspenseful story. The crime scenes and legal aspects are so realistic. It's obvious that the author really knows her stuff. As the plot develops and the tension builds, I kept trying to guess "whodunit." Lis does a great job at providing enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the last few pages.
While it's not necessary to have read the previous books in the series, it was nice to catch up again with Nicole, Allison, and Cassidy. Allison's crisis of faith was realistic, and I actually liked Nicole better than in previous books. The introduction of Ophelia, a private investigator, is a perfect addition to the team.
The one major draw-back (for me) to this series is that it is SO similar to James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series. I've made the comparison before but it seems that Wiehl is still tracking along with the major plotlines from Patterson's series. I would love to read some new, original stories if this series continues. Also, since this series is billed as Christian fiction, it bears mentioning that there is quite a bit of drinking mentioned throughout the book.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. Lis Wiehl delivers a suspenseful novel that will you have you hanging on until the very last page. [4 stars]

Very good book
I really enjoyed this book and also the first three. I would recommend it to others. It was very hard to lay down to get anything else done.
