When the host of a popular conservative radio talk show dies, the Triple Threat Club must narrow down the lengthy list of people who wished him dead.

Hand of Fate begins with a suspected terrorist attack, when outspoken radio talk show host Jim Fate is killed by poisonous gas while his show, "The Hand of Fate" is on the air. In the ensuing panic, downtown Portland is evacuated and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges is trapped in a high-rise building.  Crime reporter Cassidy Shaw is the only journalist brave enough to report from the scene as chaos overtakes the streets.  And federal prosecutor Allison Pierce ends up rescuing a toddler separated from her family and taking her to one of the city's overwhelmed hospitals.  In the days following Fate's murder, the three colleagues and friends team up to uncover the secrets behind it - and reveal a few secrets of their own.

My Thoughts:

You know it’s crazy to read about something that could happen! I mean the book is based on Jim Fate and he has this show called Hand of Fate, where he has a pretty much one handed side view of everything and so he made tons of enemies. Well how do radio host deal with the death threats that they receive? What if they receive something that could ultimately end their lives?

This story line is definitely intriguing and face-paced. The characters are awesome! This book is written in three different perspectives: Federal prosecutor Allison Pierce, FBI Agent Nicole Hedges and News Reporter Cassidy Shaw. They’re three friends from high school, whom reconnected when they were adults. This novel has different plots and twist and be prepared for a surprise ending! It kept me up pretty much all night and left me in awe! Wiehl honestly prepared a very good novel! I seriously can’t wait to read any of her other novels! I give this novel 4 out of 5 paws.
