    1. Mysteries are easily one of the most popular types of entertainment From books by everyone from Agatha Christie to James Patterson, television shows ranging from Scooby Doo to Monk to Bones, and games such as the old Parker Brothers whodunit Clue, not to mention the countless movies that have used at least one of the aforementioned media as inspiration, it s a genre that continues to live long and prosper Lis Wiehl s Face of Betrayal is a Christian mystery that mixes politics, religion, and dram [...]

    2. Okay, so i had no idea who Lis Wiehl was before reading this book and i ve still never knowingly seen her in action, but clearly she s than qualified to write this book, having served as a federal prosecuter and currently as a correspondant for Fox News and i say that because two of the three main characters in this well told novel wear those shoes the third, a special agent at the FBI, is drawn from the pages of Wiehl s father s career in the FBI The premise of the story has a ripped from the [...]

    3. Face of Betrayal is the first in a series entitled, Triple Threat The setting is modern day Portland, Oregon The genre is mystery suspense The triple threat referred to previously is a friendship among three women a reporter, a prosecuting attorney, and an FBI agent All three are women whose goal is to see justice done Warning There is some sexual non explicit scenes in this book Allison is a married attorney and a Christian who has just discovered she is pregnant with her first child She asks t [...]

    4. I had never heard of Liz Wiehl, nor anything about this book when I came across it at our local library The flap sounded interesting so I added it to my pile I usually read a chapter in each book to see which one I want to read and this one rose to the top of the pile All in all it was a pretty good read I have seen alot of mixed reviews on this book and thought I would add my own 2 centsI have also seen alot of comparisons to James Patterson, but since I am not an avid fan of his outside of Sai [...]

    5. As they say in advertisements for LA Law, this story was ripped from the headlines FACE OF BETRAYAL by Lis Wiehl one of the Fox News commentators and April Henry sounds like the Chandra Levy case.In this book a Senate page, last seen as she was setting out to walk her sister s dog, is now missing The case is receiving national attention and, maybe because of all the 24 hour cable news coverage, it has even gone worldwide People speculate on the relationship the page had with the senator who spon [...]

    6. 3.0 out of 5 stars Not an original premise, but an OK read, May 16, 2009This review is from Face of Betrayal Triple Threat Series 1 Hardcover This is apparently the first in a new series called the Triple Threat novels The premise is very similar to James Patterson s 1st to Die The Women s Murder Club in that it introduces three women who become close friends and bond while solving murder cases and calming other assorted side stories of mayhem The women include the television reporter, Cassidy, [...]

    7. Face of Betrayal launches a new murder mystery series.There is nothing like a good mystery.Most of the time when I read a murder mystery, I have it figured out ahead of time and just continue reading to find out it I was right.In Face Of Betrayal I guessed who it was fairly early in the novel, but I wasn t sure if I was right The author did an excellent job of keeping me guessing.This is the first in The Triple Threat club Three women who reunited at a high school reunion discovered that they al [...]

    8. This well written book is a detective novel It reads a bit like a true crime novel except, of course, the story is fictional The depth of behind the scenes detail given for the three main character s jobs and for the city they lived in made the story feel very realistic, like it could really have happened The level of detail, however, was never too heavy for me nor did it slow the fast pacing I wouldn t really call this book a suspense novel There are moments of suspense, but the book didn t rea [...]

    9. This one caused me a few moments thought It s another that makes me wish for a 1 2 star system or a 10 star system I read a couple of other books by Ms Wiehl and liked them I like this one to, but I d like to have given the others the edge Still this is better than a 3 star read, so I m left with giving it the same rating as the others Oh well.If you have read any nonfiction by this author you ll see some of the concerns thoughts she has expressed elsewhere used in fiction form here If you haven [...]

    10. Story line taken from the newspaper Senate page goes out to walk the dog and disappears Well written and a page turner for the most part I would classify this as a mystery thriller and except for the descriptiveness, could probably be classified as Christian fiction There were mentions of religion and Christianity and a few Bible quotations, but was not in your face In fact, one of the main characters was an atheist This is the first in a series and will definitely read the next one Will be inte [...]

    11. While I found the book to be fairly successful in building the suspense and drama of the plot, keeping you guessing until the very end, I was disappointed by several elements of the story I found it difficult to get connected with the characters in the story, since it felt like there were three main characters that I was trying to follow all at once Secondly, the theme of the story seemed to be about the many forms of sexual harassment, abuse, rape, pornography, etc which I agree are important i [...]

    12. I enjoyed the story line as well as the three members of the triple threat, Allison, a Federal prosecutor, Cassidy Shaw, a television reporter, and Nicole Hedges, a FBI Special Agent Each character was well formed and well involved in the disappearance of a 17 year old Senate page who disappears The story handles law, politics and a criminal investigation as well as the distortions and conclusions the media can put on an investigation, all in the name of news.

    13. The book starts with a seventeen year old girl named Katie Converse who goes missing while walking her dog Three very different women are put together to solve the case after a while they find out that Katie has some connections to a very powerful man, when he deny s every thing the women say it becomes obvious that he was responsible I picked up this book because I like this genreI finished this book even though I didn t need to This book was very predictable.

    14. Senate page Katie, a bright young girl has turned up missing This will pull you in circles, twists and turns trying to find out what has happened As soon as you think there is an ending, think again I loved this, was reading after recovery from surgery so a little on the slow side on my end The next one will go faster First in the triple threat series I can t wait to read the other two For details read my blog at Carolynreads Coming soon

    15. Reporter Cassidy Shaw, Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges are good friends They met each other over a chocolately dessert called the triple threat Ever since then these three friends have been known as the triple threat Katie Converse works as a Senate Page for Capital Hill While out walking her dog, she disappears Fearing the worst, her parents offer up a reward Cassidy breaks the story of Katie s disappearance She believes there is something up Her investiga [...]

    16. Face of Betrayal A Triple Threat Novel by Lis Wiehl and April Henry had resonance with me because I ve stayed close to the girl who lived next door to me when I was I child In fact, I sent her this political thriller for Christmas.The main characters are three women who became close in college and remained friends Allison Pierce, a federal prosecutor who is getting death threats, is married, expecting a baby, and is a practicing Christian Nicole Hedges, a FBI special agent investigating child po [...]

    17. I thoroughly enjoyed this first mystery book from this author Ms Lis developed well defined characters, a believable plot and subplots, and kept me interested enough that I finished this book in two days along with all my other activities Not sure at first how much religion would be included in the book, I was pleasantly surprised that the story included very natural references to each characters spirituality without being overbearing a good addition in making the characters believable.Full of [...]

    18. Last year, I think it was, I got a review copy of one of this author s books and instantly fell in love with their easy writing style She reminds me a lot of James Patterson in the way that she can take an intense, thrilling novel and make it such an easy and quick read Face of Betrayal is no exception I blasted through this book in about three days, staying up way later than I should have on Sunday night trying to finish it In this novel, there are a ton of twists and turns leading you to belie [...]

    19. This story appears to be inspired by the Chandra Levy case The case drags on with little evidence and little progress so to break the monotony the authors introduce many little subplots about the three protagonists personal lives and insider details about their various jobs to try to keep the book moving along I am sure any law enforcement job gets very frustrating and tedious when little evidence is available and results are not easily forth coming, so I appreciate the effort at realism, but it [...]

    20. Why have I not heard of this author before So glad I saw her books as I was browsing my local library s website for books to download free to my Kindle I will definitely read the rest of her Triple Threat Club books, and any I can find from her This book started out with a bang, 17 year old Katie Converse is walking her dog Jalapeno and disappears from a park near her Portland home The three friends who formed their own Triple Threat Club Allison, Nichole and Cassidy prosecutor, FBI agent and t [...]

    21. I thought the story was rather boring Certainly expected some twists The main characters aren t lively like cardboard The prose of April Henry is mediocre at best But my main complaint is that there is virtually no humor in this book The main characters are humorless I don t see any reason why her second book featuring these characters should be expected to be any better She should stick to non fiction.

    22. I thought the character development was great, good descriptions and you get pulled into the scenes The problem, as I saw in another review as well, was there were no clues as to who the killer was Just kinda popped in there The writing was good, just needed some tweaking of the story line to at least hint at the guilty party That said, I ll read additional books by this author if I happen to stumble across them.

    23. I hoped this book would be better than it was It was just ok for me Interesting characters The women were strong and I liked that, but the story line was a little disjointed and rushed It seemed a little thrown together Besides that I would read the second book just to see how these main characters flesh out and if the story line would be developed.

    24. Definitely not what I was expecting, though if I had realized that it was produced in conjunction with Thomas Nelson publishers, I would have known that this was Christian fiction Story was good, characters were well developed, did get a bit repetitive but all in all it was an ok book I mostly liked it Well narrated by Pam Turlow Definitely recommend this one to most of my friends.

    25. I thought the author was very good I would read others she wrote.I would give the book a movie rating of PG or probably PG13 just for the subject matter, though I didn t consider it graphic The book is set in Portland,Or and is 1 in a series There are some sub plots of domestic violence and internet predators I did not see the ending coming.

    26. De principio a fin me encant.Disfrut mucho la lectura, f cil de leer, muy ameno e intrigante Sinceramente, no queria hacer otra cosa si no era leer el libro.Todo el tiempo estuve pensando en los personajes y en el misterio de lahistoria, asi que recomiendo a todos este libro, los dejar sin aliento.

    27. I was introduced to Wiehl s work in the East Salem Trilogy, and decided to go back to her earlier novels I felt that Face of Betrayal was not as strong as her later work, but it introduces an interesting cast of characters who I look forward to meeting again I especially liked how the three main characters had such different personalities, and yet could work together as friends.

    28. This was a great read Enjoyed turning every page Loved the idea that three women friends can get together to solve a mystery Kept me guessing to the end.

    29. I couldn t relate to or even find myself caring about the three main female characters Just boring and uninteresting throughout the whole thing.
