The three unique women are life-long friends who call themselves The Triple Threat - a nickname derived from their favorite dessert and their uncanny ability to crack cases via their three positions of power.
Though authorities think Katie might have been kidnapped or run away, those theories shatter when Nicole uncovers Katie's blog. They reveal a girl troubled by a mysterious relationship with an older man - possibly a U.S. Senator.
As the three women race against time to find Katie alive, their increasing emotional involvement brings out their own inner demons and external enemies. There are many faces of betrayal, but they must find the one face in a crowd of growing suspects before they become the next victims.

"Wiehl, a Fox News commentator and legal analyst, teams with mystery veteran Henry (Buried Diamonds) on a sizzling political thriller....The seamless plot offers a plethora of twists and turns." (Publishers Weekly)
I watch Lis Wiehl on Fox News so thought I would try the book. If you like the James Patterson ladies detectives, you will probably like this. I do like that way that the authors interject religion into the story. One of the women actually goes to church and prays. I don't know if I've ever seen this in a book but I think that it's great that someone out there even considers plain old traditional religion as a viable option.
The narrator is the absolute worst part of the story. She's horrible. I've listened to many audible books but I can't remember a narrator I liked less. I might have liked this book a little better if I had read it instead of listening to it.
I just finished listening to this book. I would have to say it is very average. Nothing special. I like characters with a little wit and humor, these characters have none - they just aren't interesting!
The story is woven on the framework of the real story of a real woman, who was killed in washington d.C. during an affair with a congressman. It's a good read with some draw backs from this old Oregonian's point of view.
For one thing it is set in Portland OR, whose river, the Willamette the narrator pronounces not "wil LAM it" which is correct, but "william ETE".
Equally irritating is the fact that the protagonist does not even consider carrying a gun even though Oregon is a free state, allowing concealed carry.
Maybe it would take too long to get a permit ... something.
Although she worked in a building that had metal detectors, she could probably have parked her pistol with security, or left it locked in her car. Then she could have called for an escort to get herself to and from the building.
Well, if Hamlet had been able to make a decision, there would have been no play.
Still it is hard to identify with a character who is too silly, or too cowardly to arm herself, when being stalked.
The ladies do stand up against evil rather sanquinarily in the end as per formula. Well good for them and good for the book.
I was captivated by the plot, the friendships are real and comical at times. The book is totally written from a woman's perspective and it is an eye opener to the mothers who want to live life throught their daughters. The hypocracy between washington and its supporters is realistic. I recomend this book.
