Face of Betrayal is a terrific thriller and a book that I had a hard time putting down. The ending will be a complete surprise but will be entirely feasible to the reader if they pay attention to the clues that are left along the way.

Synopsis

FOX News legal correspondent and former Federal Prosecutor Lis Wiehl has created a suspense series as timely as tomorrow's headlines.


While home on break, a seventeen-year-old Senate page takes her dog out for a walk and never returns. The resulting media firestorm quickly ensnares television reporter Cassidy Shaw, Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges. Together, these life-long friends call themselves The Triple Threat—a nickname derived from their favorite dessert as well as their uncanny ability to crack cases from their three unique positions of power.


Together, they must find the one face of betrayal amidst a crowd of growing suspects—including a US Senator—before they become the next victims.


Lis Wiehl's expertise in law, politics, and criminal investigation merges with April Henry's narrative genius to create a gripping mystery filled with rich characters, real danger, and a shocking yet satisfying final twist.


“One of top ten best books of year” —Suspense Magazine


“[A] sizzling political thriller . . . The seamless plot offers a plethora of twists and turns.” —Publishers Weekly

The seamless plot offers a plethora of twists and turns. A blurb from Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly will help draw attention to Wiehl’s debut.

FACE OF BETRAYAL is an engrossing read, with a premise that seems drawn from the news of today. There's nothing fake, nothing that requires a suspension of belief to enjoy this novel, and that is truly its greatest accolade.

I enjoyed seeing the crime from three very different jobs: reporter, prosecutor, and investigator. I kept trying to guess who done it, and I was wrong...Well done, authors! This is an intriguing, stunning, and very real read. Highly recommended.
