Face of Betrayal is a look into processes of the American legal system. It follows the story from the perspective of 3 women who are friends. One is a television reporter, while another a prosecutor, and the other a detective on the case. The story follows the case of 17 yr old Katie Converse, who has gone missing while walking the family dog. You will follow the twists and turns of the case trying to determine who is responsible. Is it the local senator who has always had an interest in young girls? This book will keep you guessing until the end.

This book was an enjoyable read with an interesting perspective of the American justice system. Wiehl as former federal prosecutor delves into the realm of the crime scene investigation. While the story line is similar to many  mystery/detective books, the appeal is Wiehl’s angle as someone who has been on the other side of this type of story. How might a prosecutor or detective approach a case of a missing girl? The Christianity in this story is not a key component of the book. One character is a Christian, but does not look much at that aspect of the character. If you a looking for a novel with deep Christian meaning, this is not the book. If you are looking for a interesting book with basic Christian morality, this is a book that you will enjoy.
