Heart of Ice by Lis Wiehl
This is a fiction suspense/thriller novel, book number three in a series called "The Triple Threat Club". I have not read a fictional suspense crime novel in such a long time and am so happy that I picked this one up, it was SO GOOD! The story is based in Portland, Oregon, and centers around a sociopath female killer (Sissy, aka Elizabeth) and the Triple Threat Club members (all female): a newscaster, an FBI agent, and a prosecutor. Elizabeth doesn't let anyone stand in the way of her goals and aspirations, and is malicious to the extreme of murder to maintain her lifestyle. Elizabeth's life becomes enter twined with that of the women of the triple threat club as she spins her web and entices the reporter to be her best friend, all the while committing and masterminding crimes that the FBI agent is investigating. Although there are Christian undertones, I would not characterize this as a Christian novel, and the book has very mature and graphic topics. I personally loved this book and thought that the author did a great job keeping me totally captivated and would recommend that if you like crime or suspense novels to read this book. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
