Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl with April Henry
A triple threat Novel
Allison Pierce is a federal prosecutor, Nicole Hedges a FBI special agent, and Cassidy Shaw a local television news crime reporter. The three of them attended the same high school but weren’t close. After their ten year reunion they discovered a shared an interest in crime drawing them together as friends.
Face of Betrayal is as much about the crime against Katie Converse as it is the relationship of these three women. Katie, a white house page is missing. The normal thought is she’s a teenager so she must have runaway, then Nicole discovers Katie has been writing a blog. Now Nicole is confident something sinister has happened to Katie Converse and she suspects a family friend, Senator Fairview has something to do with her disappearance. Allison assembles a grand jury to investigate and they uncover many secrets of the Senator, but is he the one that knows where Katie is? Cassidy while concerned about Katie has a job to do–report the news. This is Cassidy’s big career break and she’s running with it. It doesn’t hurt that some of her sources are her best friends.
This may remind you of the Women’s Murder Club Series, but the only thing that is similar is there are three women in the same type of jobs. What makes this different is Allison is a Christian and her faith is respected in this book. Nicole doesn’t believe there is a God, she’s seen too much bad stuff to think He exists, and Cassidy is searching for God. I’m hoping there will be more books in this series as these the characters are intriguing.
Face of Betrayal is filled with sharp turns and rabbit trails keeping those pages turning.
