BOOK REVIEW- NEED TO KNOW by Fern Michaels
The Sisterhood: a group of women from all walks of life bound by friendship and a quest for justice. Armed with vast resources, top-notch expertise, and a loyal network of allies around the globe, the Sisterhood will not rest until every wrong is made right.
Through all their missions and adventures, the tightknit group of friends who make up the Sisterhood have learned one vital lesson: everybody has a weak spot. In the case of Yoko Wong’s dear friend Garland Lee, the multimillion-selling performer known as America’s beloved songbird, that weak spot was trusting her lawyer, Arthur Forrester. For years, he’s taken advantage of her faith in him to amass a secret fortune. And now, in the deepest betrayal yet, he’s dragged her into a lawsuit that could cost her everything.
The Sisterhood know they can’t let that happen. Forrester has some of the country’s top judges in his pocket, and a list of influential and ruthless friends—not to mention knowledge of all the ways the law can be corrupted to work in his favor. But he doesn’t have the Vigilantes’ deep-seated loyalty and determination. And all his years of underhanded dealings won’t prepare him for the type of creative payback that the Sisters have made their specialty . . . AMAZON 4 STARS
It was good to once again read about this gang of women and those who were in cahoots with them.
Of course we know who the bad guy is from the start but it was interesting to see how slippery he could be. I would expect nothing less. And he seemed to make some other people miserable not just Garland Lee.
Two of the main ladies did have a tiff with Mr. Snowden, who was one of their main contacts when a job needed a bit of help. And that did add to the drama.
This story was a quick read with justice being served and everyone happy with the results. Well, everyone except Arthur Forrester.
One thing that I realized that I missed in this story is although it did include a epilogue, it didn't tell us where Arthur ended up. I find that I miss that because it was usually a pretty good punishment. Yes, part of the punishment was recouping all he had stole but usually there was a glimpse of how unenviable his future life was going to be. Some of the other landing places were pretty original. I don't know maybe the author got tired of dreaming up more revenge life settings.
I do know that I have read several were not disclosed and like I said I miss those.
