Outspoken radio talk show host Jim Fate dies tragically when poisonous gas fills the studio while his polarizing show, “The Hand of Fate,” is on air.

And this time, it’s personal since one of the women was secretly dating the host and has access to his home...as well as possible evidence. In the days following Fate’s murder, these three colleagues and friends confront a betrayal within the team while unearthing the not-so-public life of Jim Fate. Together, they must uncover the stunning truths of who killed him, how close the killer really is, and the twisted motive for this cold-blooded murder.

Jim Fate, a Limbaugh-style talk-show host, opens a sealed envelope and inhales poison gas. The Triple Threat Club trio, FBI Special Agent Nicole, Federal Prosecutor Allison, and TV crime reporter Cassidy, who has been personally involved with Fate, go into action to chase down the perpetrator. Narrator Pam Turlow differentiates each character and dramatizes her struggles and fears. However, the author's overemphasis on character detracts from the mystery. Still, Turlow's depictions of Allison's worry over a possible miscarriage, Nicole's fears of abuse, and Cassidy's unsuspected prescription-drug addiction are credible and engaging. In the end, Turlow's excellent narration overcomes the shortcoming of too many personal issues. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
