Item description for Face Of Betrayal (Triple Threat Novel) by Lis Wiehl & April Henry...
Overview Three fiercely smart and devoted justice-seeking women investigate the disappearance of a Senate page connected to a philandering politician.
While home on Christmas holiday, a seventeen-year-old Senate page takes her dog out for a walk and never returns. Reporter Cassidy Shaw is the first to break the story. The media firestorm that ensues quickly ensnares Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedge . . . who just happen to be Cassidy's best friends. It appears the young page was romantically involved with a senator-a senator now under suspicion for her disappearance.
As time begins to run out for the missing girl, Cassidy, Allison, and Nicole fight to locate her before it's too late, even while each fights her own personal battles-a stalker, single-motherhood, and an abusive relationship.

Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl
This is billed as a triple threat novel. The triple threat is FBI agent Nicole, TV reporter Cassidy and prosecutor Allison. These three cooperate and help each other in their daily work. A young woman's murder, a stalker and a U.S. Senator are the volatile mix that creates this literary cocktail.
Ms. Wiehl created likeable characters with realistic flaws. These women are not perfect which adds authenticity to the story line. There is plenty of action and treachery in the book. Just when you think you have the plot down pat you will find yourself in a sliding skid that totally changes your direction. Abuse, homelessness and blind loyalty combine in a spicy mélange of intrigue. Betrayal is exhibited in multiple situations. I enjoyed the mystery and lament over the fragility of both life and ego.
I recommend the book.
Good book Apr 10, 2010
I don't usually read mysteries. I usually choose historical fiction, biographies, and romance. However, I was given this one by my mother. I was skeptical but ended up being pleasantly surprised. Overall, it was captivating and I learned some new things about our legal system and forensic procedures. There were a few brief parts of the book that seemed offtrack from the main storyline and not really necessary to the plot. This slowed down the flow of the book but was not a big problem. The main female characters are strong, professional, intelligent, and have contrasting personalities and lifestyles. This book is not "preachy" or overtly christian. I look forward to the next book in the series.
A Good, Solid Whodunit! Apr 3, 2010
Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl with April Henry is the first in a new series, a political thriller ripped from the headlines. The story seems to be loosely based on the 2001 Chandra Levy case. Lis Wiehl is well equipped to write in this genre. She graduated from Harvard Law School. She's a former federal prosecutor and a legal analyst and commentator for the Fox News Channel.
Katie Converse, a seventeen year-old U.S. Senate page, comes home to Portland, Oregon for her Christmas break. She takes the family dog, Jalapeno, for a walk and never comes home. Reporter Cassidy Shaw, Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges are long time friends. They call themselves The Triple Threat, named after their favorite dessert. The three women become enmeshed in the case. As the investigation continues, they discover her blog, which hints at a relationship with an older man, possibly Senator Fairview, her Washington sponsor.
The book begins on a confusing note, jumping from past to present but the chapters are dated so it didn't take long to get into the flow. The chapters are short, the pace brisk and the use of technology and the internet adds realism. There are enough twists and turns to keep a reader's attention. The book seems geared towards women, with its cast of strong female characters. And it's an interesting touch to view the crime form three different perspectives, the reporter, the prosecutor, and the investigator, who have their own personal problems to deal with. There is a religious element to the story. It centers on Allison, the attorney, who prays, consults her priest and talks about religion with her friends, one of whom is an agnostic. I wasn't fully engaged with the characters but I'm a fan of whodunits so I enjoyed the read and the unpredictable ending.
