Book Review: Hand of Fate, by Lis Wiehl


What a great book. Normally- I don't know that I would pick this one up if I were out browsing for books. It's part of a series but what's fantastic is that you don't need to read the one that comes before it. It stands on its own.
It's the story of a popular radio talk show host, Jim Fate, who was killed in the studio by a mysterious and poisonous gas. The murder came on the heels of threats and scares of sarin gas and put the city of Portland into a panic. In the aftermath it follows three women, a federal prosecutor, a television anchor woman and an FBI agent who are all friends and all have a connection to Jim Fate and together try to solve his murder.
This book has a ton of twists and turns and really- you have no idea who did it. I thought I figured it out and why, but in the end, I was wrong. It was a page turner and generally very entertaining. It's a good book to read if you are looking to depart from what you usually read.
With that being said, if you want this book- let me know! I will give my copy away to the first person to comment saying "I Want This Book!".
