Description

FOX News legal correspondent and former Federal Prosecutor Lis Wiehl has created a suspense series as timely as tomorrow's headlines.

While home on break, a seventeen-year-old Senate page takes her dog out for a walk and never returns. The resulting media firestorm quickly ensnares television reporter Cassidy Shaw, Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges. Together, these life-long friends call themselves The Triple Threat—a nickname derived from their favorite dessert as well as their uncanny ability to crack cases from their three unique positions of power.

Together, they must find the one face of betrayal amidst a crowd of growing suspects—including a US Senator—before they become the next victims.

Lis Wiehl's expertise in law, politics, and criminal investigation merges with April Henry's narrative genius to create a gripping mystery filled with rich characters, real danger, and a shocking yet satisfying final twist.

“One of top ten best books of year” —Suspense Magazine

“[A] sizzling political thriller . . . The seamless plot offers a plethora of twists and turns.” —Publishers Weekly

Reading Group Guide

  1. At its heart, Face of Betrayal is about three friends who love each other--and their work. Do you have any friendships like that?
  2. When the book opens, the man Allison prosecuted for hiring someone to kill his wife is sentenced. He had hired a hit man to kill his wife. Should hiring a hit man carry the same penalty as committing murder yourself?
  3. When Katie disappears, her parents work to get attention from the media and law enforcement. Do you think that if a girl disappears who isn't white or upper class, or whose parents aren't as savvy, it would get as much media attention? If so, is there anything that can be done about it?
  4. Allison has been trying for two years to get pregnant. Do you know people who have struggled with infertility?
  5. Nicole works with the FBI's Innocent Images to catch online pedophiles. Do you think the Internet has led to an increase in the number of pedophiles, or that it has simply given them new tools?
  6. Cassidy is a spiritual seeker. Do you know women like her?
  7. Katie's parents were unaware of her MySpace page. If you have kids, do you let them have a MySpace or Facebook page? Do you monitor it? Why or why not? Is it snooping for parents to look through their kids' emails? Is it any different than reading letters that they get in the mail?
  8. Nicole has to send her daughter to live with Nic's parents while the case is at a fever pitch. Is it possible to hold a demanding job and still be a good mother? Do we ask the same question of fathers? Should we?
  9. As a black woman working in a white man's world, Nicole feels she has to be twice as good to be treated as an equal. Do you think there still is a double standard for race? For sex?
  10. Cassidy's station devotes a lot of resources to the story of the missing Senate intern. Do you think TV news is catering more and more to the sensationalism and celebrities and doing fewer in-depth, well-researched stories? Has the way you get your news changed in the past few years?
  11. In desperation, Katie's parents contact a woman who says she can get in touch with Katie's spirit. Do you think there are people who really have such powers?
  12. Allison knows that domestic violence accounts for more injuries to women in America than heart attacks, cancer, strokes, car wrecks, muggings, and rapes combined. Do you know anyone who has been affected by domestic violence? Have you ever tried to help someone you suspected was being abused?
  13. Senator Fairview is revealed to be a man who lies, cheats, and rationalizes. Do you think it's possible to be a politician while still retaining your principles? Or does "power corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" as Lord Acton said?
