Thomas Nelson Book Review : #2
Awhile back I told you I was going to post some reviews from time to time- Well, here (FiNAlLy) is #2!
I stepped it up a bit from my first review of a Children's DVD to a murder suspense novel by Lis Wiehl with April Henry entitled Face of Betrayal. The book centered around the disappearance of a seventeen-year-old girl, Katie Converse, who is home on break from her position as a Senate page. Three friends, who call themselves the "Triple Threat" unravel the case through three perspectives. Nicole, as an FBI special agent brings us to the scenes of the crime and frontlines of the investigation. Cassidy Shaw is a television reporter who is trying to make it big. Allison Pierce plays the role of a Fedral Prosecutor.
I enjoyed the book. I would definately say it had more appeal for a female audience and would recommend it as a good summer read. The descriptions of the characters were good, and left me with questions. I hope that each of the main characters will be further developed in future books. The plot was good- it kept me guessing as to the ending and when I thought I had it figured out there was one last twist.
