Eyes of Justice–Wiehl and Henry

547080: Eyes of Justice, Triple Threat Series #4 Eyes of Justice, Triple Threat Series #4
By Lis Wiehl with April Henry / Thomas Nelson

Cassidy, Allison, and Nicole fight for justice every day-Cassidy as a crime reporter, Nicole with the FBI, and Allison as a federal prosecutor. Together they’re a Triple Threat to be reckoned with. But never have they faced a case so full of blind alleys-or so painfully close to home. When a devastating turn of events upsets the balance of the Triple Threat team, they discover an ally in a quirky Private Investigator named Ophelia . The women vow not to stop until the case is solved and justice is served.

Review Summary: The fourth installment starts off with a major shock. I don’t want to give too much away, but I was very surprised and wondered what the authors planned for an ending. This was probably my least favorite of the series but I did end up enjoying it.  The normal calm, cool, and collected Nicole Hedges was everything but in most of this story.  Likewise, Allison was not her usual professional self through much of the story. Yet, I did feel for them and their pain at regrets and things left unsaid. Unlike book three, Heart of Ice,  the authors do not reveal the antagonist until near the end of the story, which I personally prefer.  The story was believable and could have been something you would see on Law and Order. 

Digging Deeper: Being the fourth book in the series I’ve gotten to know the characters and enjoy looking at their lives. Watching the development of Allison’s sister, Lindsay, and the growth in her as a person and her relationship with Allison. Similarly, the development of Nicole’s relationship with Lief and his bigger role in this story added to the overall story. 

As I’ve mentioned as tragedy hits, Allison and Nicole are very much out of character. It did bother me greatly how combative Nicole becomes at points in the story.  Even the straight laced Allison bends rules to suit her needs. A reminder that when we are hurting we don’t always use the best judgment.

This story also serves to remind us that we don’t know what tomorrow holds and we should treasure each day and each person in our lives.  This is a good story. As I said, not my favorite of the series, but with the way the story develops I look forward to the future of the Triple Threat Series.

As the other books in the series this book is not overtly “Christian.”  There are scenes in the book that refer to social drinking and in one scene Nicole drinks probably more than she should. However, I’m still interested in where the authors will eventually take the story line.  You will see changes in Nicole’s attitude toward God.

You could probably read this book without reading the others and enjoy the story. You’ll understand the characters and appreciate them more if you’ve read at least one of the previous stories.

Disclaimer: I would like to thank the publishers Thomas Nelson for the opportunity to read and review this book. I’m under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.

Giveaway:  The publisher did send me a physical book for review, a hard back.  I’m giving that copy away.  So leave a comment along with the state you’re from and I’ll choose a winner on April 15th at 9:00PM PDT.  Open to US Residents.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

  1. I really enjoyed this book–after I recovered a bit from the shock of having one of the Triple Threat gals murdered! The loss of one of the main characters early in the book is much more shocking if you have read the previous books in the series. So I recommend your readers read at least one–Heart of Ice was a great one.
    This book is a great blend of mystery, suspense and chick lit. The friendships between the women are portrayed realistically, complete with occasional insecurities and self-doubts, but also fierce loyalty. Lis’ experience in the legal field and in the media allows her to write realistically about these characters and their adventures as they solve crimes.

  2. I would love to read this book. I have not read any of Lis’ books, but they look like something that will really draw me in. I definitely love those books that have you on edge all the way through and that make it very difficult to fall asleep. Sounds like this might be the perfect fit. I am from Illinois.

  3. I haven’t read the first books of this series, but they are the kind of books I like to read. I am recently retired and have lots of time to read for pleasure now! Thank you for offering this book to one of us.

  4. This sounds like a great book and one that I definitely would love to read. Please enter me in the giveaway.

    Blessings,
