"exciting romantic suspense"
As the Lusitania is going down, petty thief Felix
Greenfield is in the cabin of Henry W. Wyley stealing one
of the THREE FATES statues. By the time he realizes he is
in danger, he pockets the valuable item, saves a mother and
son, and vows to turn over a new leaf. He is rescued and
settles in Ireland and raises a family. Felix's
descendants, the Sullivans, hold on to the statue until
Malachi loses it to Anita Waye, a black widow who slept
with him in order to steal it.
Malachi and his siblings Gideon and Rebecca not only vow to
get it back but they intend to find the other two statues,
uniting THE THREE FATES before selling them. The Sullivan
siblings meet their significant others while pursuing the
statues, not yet realizing that Anita, who is one step
ahead of them, will kill everyone who gets in her way. The
group must find a way of outwitting her without anyone
getting hurt in the process.
Nora Roberts has written a work of romantic suspense
that will please her many fans as will as those readers who
like some romance in their thrillers. The book moves at a
rapid pace so nobody will get bored during this fascinating
read. The Sullivan siblings and their significant others
are a varied group that makes for lively scenes and
interactions and turns THREE FATES into one of Nora
Roberts' best mainstream novels.
