Book Review: Face of Betrayal
In Face of Betrayal, a teenage girl is missing, a senate page. Entries on the girl’s MySpace page lead Allison (the prosecutor) and Nic (the FBI agent) to suspect murder or suicide, rather than kidnapping. Because the girl is a senate page from an influential family, the case quickly becomes big news, keeping Cassidy (the reporter) busy.
At the same time, Allison’s life is threatened and Cassidy becomes involved in a complicated relationship. These story elements, along with hints about Nic’s mysterious past add drama to the book while letting us get to know the main characters.
I enjoyed reading Face of Betrayal, though it was a little bit graphic for my tastes. If you are a fan of crime dramas, you’ll like this book.
Following the story, there is a thought-provoking discussion guide—very well-done. There is also an interview with Lis Wiehl by Bill O’Reilly where we learn how her career experiences helped her to create “The Triple Threat Club” and where she promises a sequel to come soon.
