In this book, one of the three Triple Threat women is brutally murdered early in the book. This is an unusual plot technique in a series that is focused on three heroines. The rest of the book tells how the remaining two characters try to solve the mystery of their friend’s murder.
Early in the book, the murdered woman’s ex-boyfriend is arrested and charged with the murder. However, eventually the women realize that the police have the wrong person, because although he’s in jail, someone is trying to kill them as well.
As the women try to solve the crime, they enlist the help of a woman named Ophelia, a quirky private investigator.
Like the previous books in the series, Eyes of Justice blends mystery, suspense and chick lit. The women attended high school together but ran in different circles. They reunite at their 10 year high school reunion and realize that they have all chosen careers in which they fight crime. They go out to dinner and split a dessert—a Triple Threat chocolate cake—and jokingly begin to refer to themselves as the Triple Threat club. The friendships between the women are portrayed realistically, complete with occasional insecurities and self-doubts. The characters mature and progress as the story unfolds.
The author draws on her experience as a television reporter (and a former prosecutor) to create authentic characters.
