Publisher's Summary

When the host of a popular radio talk show is murdered, the Triple Threat Club must narrow down the lengthy list of suspects who wanted him dead. Outspoken radio talk show host Jim Fate dies tragically and dramatically when poisonous gas fills his recording booth while his show, "The Hand of Fate", is on air. In the ensuing panic, police evacuate downtown Portland, leaving FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges trapped in a high-rise building.

Crime reporter Cassidy Shaw is the only journalist brave enough to report from the scene as chaos overtakes the streets. And federal prosecutor Allison Pierce must rescue a child separated from her family even as she escapes the danger herself. In the days following Fate's murder, these three colleagues and friends team up to piece together the not-so public life of Jim Fate in order to uncover the stunning truth of who killed him and why.

    "Too many mispronunciations by the Narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed the story line. It was hard to get past the mispronunciations of cities and places by the narrator, so I had to stop listening to it for about 2 weeks before I could get past it and pick it us again.

    Story
    "Great book but reader mispronounces locations"
    What did you like best about Hand of Fate? What did you like least?

    The story line was good. The character development was good. This is the second book in this series and the author tied this book into the first one well. However, the reader mispronounces many of the local Portland area geographical names and that really grated on us as we listened to the book. It took away a lot of the enjoyment of the book. A little research or even asking the author who is familiar with the area would have made the book much more enjoyable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Pam Turlow’s performances?

    No,I don't think we will purchase another book read by Pam Turlow. We had planned on listening to the Lis Wiehl series but this performance was really off-putting.


    Any additional comments?

    A simple phone call to the local library would have cleared up any doubts about the pronunciation of many of the place names. Not doing so produced a poor quality product.

    I absolutely ADORE reading but with the long commute to and from work and caring for a lot of people that aren't well, listening to books in the car have saved my reading career. Thanks Audible.
