Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is distinctive, with a terrific plot and an imperfect main character who is spellbinding. Kudos to Lis Wiehl for imaginative, yet absolutely believable in this ‘me’ world, great writing. Wiehl has distanced herself from the pack with this one.” Suspense Magazine
“Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl puts her experience to splendid use in The Newsmakers...The Newsmakers harks to the best of Robert Ludlum’s paranoid tales of shadow governments and secret cabals, as well as classic political thrillers like The Parallax View or Three Days of the Condor. That’s a high bar to set, but Wiehl is more than up to the task in crafting a superb page-turner as provocative as it is scary.” Providence Journal
“Wiehl’s insider knowledge of the television news industry gives this novel credibility and excitement beyond the everyday tale.” RT Book Reviews
“With the voice of a newscaster, narrator Devon O’Day tells the story of an ambitious journalist who ends up taking on the very people who employ…[It] makes for interesting listening as Sparks digs harder than Woodward and Bernstein to get to the truth…O’Day’s presentation will keep listeners on the edge of their seats with this thriller.” AudioFile
