Publisher's Summary

When the Lusitania sank, more than 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations.

Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans. And Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan are determined to recover their great-great-grandfather's treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.

The quest will take them from their home in Ireland to Helsinki, Prague, and New York and introduce them to a formidable female professor whose knowledge of Greek mythology will aid them in their quest; to a daring exotic dancer who sees the Fates as her chance at a new life; and to a seductive security expert who knows how to play high-tech cat-and-mouse. And it will pit them in a suspenseful fight against an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates.

    "Very enjoyable listen -"
    What made the experience of listening to Three Fates the most enjoyable?

    Most importantly the narrator's pleasant voice, and her good use of differences in the characters. The story line had enough tension and romance to keep you listening for a good while.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened for several hours at a time while I worked, but at some point I had to reluctantly leave off to attend to matters that needed my attention.

    "Great Story"
    Would you listen to Three Fates again? Why?

    No, I was tired of hearing the "f" word all the time. The story was intriguing though.


    What does Bernadette Quigley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked the way she portrayed the different characters. She did a great job.

    The narrator does a great job of switching between Irish and American accents. A pleasure to listen to this story.

    Story
    "Another great story ruined by poor narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book, yes, but not the audiobook. This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts stories, but I couldn't make it through the first two chapters of the audio version because the narration was so awful. Roberts may not win Nobel prizes for literature, but I think she's got a significant enough fan base that she deserves some of the better narrators that are out there.


    What other book might you compare Three Fates to and why?

    At the moment, I can't think of one that it reminded me of. Any fan of Nora Roberts knows there's a certain formula to her books and sometimes her stories simply remind you of other of her stories. For those of us who enjoy her style of writing, that's not necessarily a turn off, and it tends to be less noticeable (to me) in her longer works, like this one. Generally if you enjoy her novels, you'll probably really enjoy this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Quigley’s performances?

    Never. In fact, if she were the narrator it would be enough to make me NOT buy an audio book I was otherwise interested in.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If movies were always like the books that inspired them, then absolutely yes! But so many concessions have to be made to turn a novel into a movie - composite characters, deleted subplots, etc. - that if I really, really love a novel, it's usually better for me to avoid the movie version.

    "Just ...."

    Not my favourite read. The storyline was quite predictable and didn't have any great twists and turns. I did enjoy the history of the Lusitania but that was only a small component of the story. I can see this being made into a movie but I wouldn't bother going to see it. The narrator did a good job.
