Eyes of Justice by Lis Wiehl

The Eyes of Justice, the fourth installment of the Triple Threat Series, was a wonderful and suspenseful tale of mystery and friendship.

The Triple Threat Club has solved intense murder mysteries before…but this time it’s personal.
Cassidy, Allison, and Nicole fight for justice every day—Cassidy as a crime reporter, Nicole as an FBI agent, and Allison as a federal prosecutor. Together they’re a Triple Threat to be reckoned with.
But when a ruthless murderer kills one of their number—and the authorities seem intent on keeping them out of the investigation of the crime—their desire for justice goes into overdrive. They find an unexpected ally in a quirky private investigator named Ophelia whose methods confound the wise.
Yet just when it seems police have the killer in custody and justice is within sight, he somehow strikes again. Not knowing whom to trust, the team engage in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the killer. Nothing can be taken at face value…and nothing will ever be the same.

The Eyes of Justice was a well written novel that wove suspense and mystery together with incredible skill. The plot was well written and kept me guessing throughout. In many of Lis Wiehl's mystery novels she gives the readers clues that the characters do not have. However, in this novel the reader is left as much in the dark as the main characters so that it really does feel like a race against time before all three of the Triple Threat are killed. The characters of the Eyes of Justice were also well developed. The main characters were given realistic strengths and flaws, and the author continued to add to their characteristics from the previous three books in the series. Other minor characters from previous Triple Threat novel had larger roles in this book, and some new characters were added to the mix. While Eyes of Justice is an absolutely excellent, spell-binding read, be prepared that there are several deaths of important characters in this book, and it creates an extremely sad tone throughout the novel.

Overall, I really enjoyed The Eyes of Justice, and I would highly recommend reading the entire Triple Threat series by Lis Wiehl to anyone.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers through Booksneeze.com in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Loved this book… Lis’ experience as a reporter and as a prosecutor comes through in her books, especially the Triple Threat series. The three women are a crime reporter, a federal prosecutor and an FBI agent. 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.
