Lis Wiehl co-wrote with April Henry The Triple Threat Club novels, which follow three fiercely intelligent women—a TV reporter, a Federal prosecutor and an FBI agent. At first sight, theft and arson seem to be the trick of a man, Joe. His youth was devoted to setting fire and discovery the powers of ignition. Now he’s bound by the commands of the gorgeous, but psychopathic Elizabeth Avery (“Sissy”). She orders to murder several people in what appears to be random killings. When Elizabeth kills a young young tv reporter, and let her dead body dump, her crime catches the attention of Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges, and crime reporter Cassidy Shaw.
Several storylines, and additional male and female actors enter this whodunnit. Who’s next on Elizabeth’s list and will everyone be able to cover up what he or she’s done? Like a true crime novel private and business context are interrelated and give the characters their human traits in Heart of Ice. Can they stop Elizabeth before she reaches her unthinkable, ultimate end-goal? I enjoyed reading it, though the tension’s is never that high, that you can’t put away the book. Written with some Christian and supernatural elements in it, you won’t find explicit language or indecencies. I think some more real-life details like anger, lust and jealousy are certainly missing to make Heart of Ice a real thriller.
