The first in what I believe will be a great series, Face of Betrayal introduces us to "The Triple Threat" girls, a great combination of TV Reporter, Federal Prosecutor & FBI Special Agent. As advertised, I found this book a fantastically fast-paced thriller, full of intrigue & suspense. Though it may have seemed obvious, through some great twists, Wiehl & Henry kept me guessing throughout the book as to who the killer was. I loved meeting each of the characters & am ready to read the next book in the series, Hand of Fate.
I received a complimentary copy of Lisa Wiehl's new book Face of Betrayal from Thomas Nelson to review. Wiehl's experience as a Fox News correspondent brings a news-like quality to the story. Face of Betrayal follows the disappearance of a 17 year old Senate page while she is home on Christmas break. It is a fast paced read with plenty of twists and turns. I really enjoy this genre and this page turner did not disappoint!The crime and mystery part of the book is fantastic. What I enjoyed even more was the friendship of reporter Cassidy Shaw, Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, and FBI Agent Nicole Hedges, three friends who all become entangled in the case. Their unique friendship along with the suspenseful plot add up to a story I had a hard time putting down. I enjoyed that this is a Christian book, it did not have the language you find in many mystery/crime type books. I would highly recommend this book to older teens as well as adults. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a great story and overall a 'gentle' read except for a few lines in the book that brought in a harsher side of reality. From this standpoint, would not suggest this book for young ladies. Would read more by author.
Three friends - a reporter, a federal prosecutor, and an FBI agent - all work to uncover the truth about a missing Senate page while supporting each other through the twists and turns of their own lives. A political thriller, this book will keep you turning the pages. But if you're expecting a Christian novel, you might be disappointed. This book could have been published as a secular novel, albeit a cleaner version than many of this genre. There was no clear Christian message, although one character is clearly a Christian. So if you're expecting a redemption story, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you simply enjoy this type of book and are tired of the rated-R nature of many of them, this might be a nice alternative. It is fast-paced, well-written, and exciting!I did enjoy this book and plan to read the upcoming books in this Triple Threat Series. And I would not hesitate to recommend it as a good - and safe - read. I just wish it had a bit more of a Christian message. Perhaps by the end of the series, that will be the case.A complimentary review copy of this book was provided by Thomas Nelson Publishers with no expectation of a positive review.
