Time to celebrate (if you live in Portland, come celebrate with me!)

Tomorrow I'll be celebrating the publication of not one, but two books: The Night She Disappeared and Eyes of Justice.

If you live in the Portland area, come join me Tuesday, April 3, at 7 pm at Powells Cedar Hills in Beaverton. There will be chocolate!

The Night She Disappeared
Rights have sold in Germany, England, and Turkey. It's also a Junior Library Guild Selection.

"When 17-year-old Kayla Cutler, an employee at Pete's Pizza, disappears while delivering an order, her fellow employees are shocked and disturbed. Unfolding over the two weeks after Kayla vanishes, Henry's (Girl, Stolen) heart-pounding mystery alternates among the perspectives of numerous characters, including Kayla's co-workers Gabie, who is traumatized by Kayla's kidnapping (and believes that she was the intended target), and Drew, a "straight-C stoner" who is supporting his drug-addicted mother, as well as a diver searching the Willamette River, a psychic, Kayla herself - and the man who kidnapped her. As Kayla plots an escape from the room in which she's being held, Gabie and Drew try to investigate what happened to her, holding out hope that she's still alive. It's a riveting story that many readers will finish in one sitting, full of suspects and augmented by police reports, interviews, and newspaper articles that, along with the variety of voices, make the events feel all the more real. Each chapter is a surprise, and the tension builds steadily until the inevitable climactic face-off. "
- Publishers Weekly

"In this plot-driven, page-turning thriller, the narrative switches between characters in first person from various perspectives. Henry provides just enough detail to provide depth and complexity to the characters. Documents and transcripts are used throughout the book to provide more insight into evidence and police reports made regarding the disappearance of Kayla. The narrative reveals from the outset who has taken Kayla and how she is being treated. The reader must wait with bated breath to see when and if the characters will uncover the truth as the suspense builds to a fever pitch near the end of the book."

"This fast-paced, gripping thriller incorporates many different devices to keep the story moving along. Medical reports, 9-1-1 transcripts, and chapters told by a variety of characters will keep readers involved."
- School Library Journal

"The thriller is narrated using a collage technique. Interspersed with the kids' and perpetrator's first-person accounts are police reports, 911 transcripts, webpages, interviews, etc., which add interest and texture....Gabie and Drew's budding relationship is believable, and it has a strong wingding climax followed by a feel-good ending."
- Kirkus

"The Night She Disappeared is a genuine thriller that races along from first page to last. Tightly plotted and neatly told."
- Marcus Sedgwick, award-winning author of Revolver

Eyes of Justice
"Multiple murders and a bank robbery gone awry - part of a killer's twisted quest for revenge - propel Wiehl and Henry's shocking, fast-paced fourth Triple Threat novel (after 2011's Heart of Ice). As special agent Nicole Hedges deals with a new by-the-book FBI boss and federal prosecutor Allison Pierce grapples with faith and family issues, Portland, Ore., TV crime reporter Cassidy Shaw is front and center in the investigation. Wiehl and Henry delve deeply into the psyches, pasts, and tragic collisions of their characters, including newcomer Ophelia Moyer, a technical whiz kid and PI brought into the fold by Nic's paramour and sometime partner, Leif Larson. Readers will be reeling by the denouement, which ties up loose ends and leaves the future open-ended both personally and professionally for the three leads. For those seeking gal pal tales reminiscent of Tess Gerritsen's Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles, the Triple Threat adventures are a sure bet."
- Publishers Weekly

"The surviving members of the Triple Threat investigate the shocking murder of one of their own....Fans may be dismayed at the demise of a key player, but the fast-paced writing and appealing characters go a long way to making amends."
- Kirkus

"Wiehl and Henry revisit the Triple Threat club in their fourth novel featuring the three crime-fighting women - and dare to turn the entire series upside down with the events that occur. Yet, somehow, this works well and causes the reader to become more invested in discovering the culprit of the horrendous crimes."
- Romantic Times
