The saga of The Triple Threat team continues fighting crime – only this time it is against one of their own. Cassidy, the TV crime reporter is brutally murdered. Her gruesome body is discovered by her friends Allison, a prosecutor, and Nicole, an FBI agent, when Cassidy fails to join them for dinner.
All of the evidence points to Rick, Cassidy's violent ex-boyfriend. Rick is a cop and Allison and Nicole are not sure justice will be served. Both are reprimanded for meddling in an investigation that is not theirs.
As Nicole and Allison continue to pursue the case on their own, the evidence against Rick begins to look to convenient and they wonder if he was set up. Hampered by their bosses, Nicole and Allison hire a quirky private investigator, Olivia. (She is so quirky I had to look up the meaning of neurotypical.)
And then the unbelievable happens. It looks like someone is out to murder Allison. Will Nicole and Olivia uncover the murderer's identity before he kills every member of The Triple threat team?
If you have not read the earlier novels in this series, you may be a little puzzled at first but the authors have included enough background material that you can certainly enjoy this novel on its own. This is a pretty fast paced novel with continuous action. There is lots of blood, so if that bothers you, this novel is not for you. The Christianity in the novel is subtle but there.
I love a good mystery, and this is a good one.
