Bestseller Wiehl and Henry's second Triple Threat novel (after Face of Betrayal\n) offers an exciting if familiar plot. When Jim Fate, a radio talk host in Portland, Ore., opens a padded envelope addressed to him shortly before going on air, he releases a poison gas, possibly sarin, that soon kills him. The package also contains a copy of Talk Radio\n, originally a play, later a movie, about the true-life murder of Denver talk show host Alan Berg. Caught in the subsequent investigation are three young professionals with links to law enforcement: federal prosecutor Allison Pierce, who's pregnant; FBI special agent Nicole Nic Hedges; and Cassidy Shaw, a TV crime reporter, who formed the Triple Threat Club after a high school reunion. Readers will identify with these very real women as they try to uncover Fate's killer, and each battles a personal demon Allison her fear of miscarriage, Nic her fear of her daughter's criminal father, and Cassidy her prescription drug addiction. \n
As I said in my review of the first book, I highly recommend this series! I am now on the 4th book, and have blown through the first 3 simply because I couldn't put them down. They just get better and better, and with each book you will find yourself more attached to the characters and more informed of their gradually revealed back stories. Despite the amount of sleep I've sacrificed to read these, I am so glad I found them! I read Heart of Ice in just over 24 hrs, it was just that good!
