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.

Like all of Nora's book, you really believe the relationship between the lead figures. She's very good about groupings of three.
The Cruella DeVille character :)
Yes! I buy them for the gym, then find myself listening in the car and at home, while preparing dinner!
I would listen to it again. This has been one of my favorites of Nora's books for years, and I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.
I love moments when a good plan comes together. In this case, our six protagonists come up with a fun and excellent way to spike the wheels of the detestable Anita Gay. Even when parts were relatively predictable, I found myself anticipating that "gotcha" moment.
Sometimes you can make plans. Sometimes, Fate intervenes.
I haven't read the story in several years, so there were many details that were foggy. I loved re-discovering all the twists and surprising connections between the characters.
No, I have managed to wade through two other books by Nora Roberts. Did not enjoy them.Three Fates was my third try. I gave up after 45 mins of listining. No more Nora Roberts no matter how cheap they are.
Something of Connelly, Kellerman, Patterson, Child, Macdonald. They are always good.br/>
Slow, boreing, sounds like she would like to be doing something else
I listened to the first 45 mins of that book 3 times and can't remember a thing about it.
Thank you for letting me voice my opinion
Yes, it had just the right mix of light hearted humor and excitement and romance.
Actually, the very first scene at the sinking of the Lusitania was the most memorable.
I liked both Tia and Rebecca. I could identify with both of them.
I chuckled throughout the book. There were times that I didn't want to stop listening because I wanted to hear what happened next.
I've always enjoyed Nora Roberts as an author. The chase in this story hinges on injured pride, obsession and greed. All the characters mature during the story. It's fast paced. My interest was piqued concerning the Lusitania. I enjoyed the historic event being brought back to the public eye. The performance did not have a natural flow to it, sometimes being stilted. I enjoyed this more as a "read," rather than a "listen."
Wrong question. It should will you listen to Three Fates again. The answer is yes. The reason is that it was an extremely enjoyable story and I believe that I'll get more out of it during subsequent listenings. While I don't listen to all of my audio books more than once I do listen to most of them more than once. Three Fated is a for sure re-listen-to audio book.
I liked and enjoyed all of the characters in this book but I especially enjoyed Rebeca.
I liked when Rebeca was introduced to the old man that had been the little boy saved by her ancestor.
I have quite a few audio books that were written by Nora Roberts and I've enjoyed them all a lot, but this book stands out from the crowd. Additionally in my opinion Bernadette Quigley did a great job narrating this book. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone that enjoys this type of romantic thriller / suspense.
Retired RN with 28 years in the operating room. An nurse educator specialized in surgical lasers and high risk equipment. Married for 36 years to my wonderful wife and mother of 3 men. Still waiting on the grand babies! While waiting, love to read & listen to books. I am a HUGE FAN OF AUDIBLE. COM!
Absolutely! In most cases audio books are better because of the voices put to the characters and if the narrator is really good, like this one, can also give the read a certain pace of excitement to the story.
Everything! What a great listen! I was particularly interested in the way the author used the factful sinking of a ship and family ties to weave an extraordinary story that keeps your attention to the end.
This is tough to answer, but probably the ending was the best.
Romantic and packed with action! Or, Who will win and who will lose?
I haven't written many reviews, but I was compelled to write one for this really fun and exciting book! Three Fates is one of the best of many, many books I have listened to.
At least as good.
The correspondence between Jack and his father, witty and brilliantly vocalized.
Her masterful command of dialects, her ability to shape shift between a man and woman's voice, the ability to maintain the gist of the narrative through the dialect. Without having to hear the speaker identified I could know who was speaking. And sometimes with three persons in the room speaking animatedly, this had to be difficult to switch.
Nope. I wanted it to last, and last, and last. Hated to come to the end.
Would love to pick up another just like it immediately. I liked Nora's Witness very much also but this one is the best.
Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.
A different narrator. I think the basic story was interesting enough--unfortunately, the narrator was so insufferable, I finally quit trying to listen to the book. I'll try to find it in print at the library and finish it :-(
The narrator couldn't seem to decide on a voice quality--but even if one could manage to listen despite that, it was at times flat and monotonous (those were the best moments), other times she seemed to be trying to be--sexy? (It sounded like whining), cool or street smart? (it sounded scratchy), just reading? (it lacked variation in tone). Was she bored? Trying to sound sophisticated (if so, that was an "F" performance). I almost never stop listening to a book, even when the narrator lacks something. But I did stop this one (and left a mystery hanging without knowing what happened!). I asked myself why I was continuing to listen--feeling tortured--almost would have preferred chalk on a board. Sorry. I won't be listening to more books read by Ms. Quigley.
