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 - in a mystery where the stakes are very personal.
