    This is the 3rd book in the Mia Quinn series by author Lis Wiehl. I have read several of this authors books and enjoy them but I didn't think this one was quite up to the high standard set previously. I did enjoy this book but I think that was mainly down to me being already familiar with these characters. A decent read but not a great one.

In an attempt to come up with more evidence to retry a man who may get away with murder, Mia and Charlie work side by side to prove they cannot let this killer go freeOS:I'm certainly a fan of Lis Wiehl's writing. The suspense is carried out th [...]

    There are so many great things about this book.1. The characters are very real and interesting. As the focus shifts between characters, we get to see and hear things from different perspectives which really helps us get to know that character better. Because of that, we know more than the investigators and Mia know. Many times I wanted to scream, “No, don’t do that!” It created a lot of tension.2. The mystery, as always in a Lis Wiehl book, was top notch even with seeing into the villain [...]

    Another exciting Mia Quinn MysteryMia Quinn, prosecutor, and Charlie Carlson, homicide detective, are trying to convict David Leacham of murdering a young teenage prostitute, Dandan. Dandan Yee came over from China to Seattle to find her mother who had immigrated years earlier. Dandan was part of a group of young Chinese who had been promised a better way of life when in fact they were forced into slavery, either through the sex trade or through low-wage work. Kenny Zhong owned Chinese restauran [...]

    ***A journey into the murky shadows of illegal immigrants, prostitution,human sex trafficking, bribery and murder.***Lethal Beauty, book three in the Mia Quinn Mystery series from Lis Wiehl and April Henry finds King County prosecutor Mia Quinn working on what she thought would be an "open and shut murder case." And it should have been. There wasn't any doubt Dandan Lee, a young Chinese prostitute, had been stabbed to death by her "rich American client," David Leacham. However, David hired Seatt [...]

    This is the third book in the Mia Quinn series and each one is better than the one before. The author has done an excellent job with these characters and their development. The poignant story in deals with the problem of human trafficking in a well written and engaging manner.Mia, Charlie, and Eli are front and center once again in this story. I like Mia, she is strong but real with her struggles. Charlie has grown on me, with his slightly unorthodox ways. Eli, is interesting and I’m looking f [...]

    Beauty can be deceiving - and it is about what you want to see, sometimes. Sometimes you see just your own pleasure. Sometimes the beauty of life money can offer can lure you to get blind and to forget the truth. Sometimes you prefer the beauty of your own comfort to not see the suffering of your fellow humans. And sometimes anything what can cover your inner brokenness might seem as a beautiful thing, too. But the true beauty is inside.And this is the morale of the third Mia Quinn's story - and [...]

    4.5 if possible . . . basically a good yarn . . . teenager actually listening to an adult? . . . maybe . . . teenager actually changing his behavior after listening to an adult? . . . not believable . . . ending rushed - "And then a miracle happened" - almost . . . tedium/strategy of a court trial the better part of the story . . .

    I didn't like this as much as the first two. Although the information about twenty-first century slavery in the US was powerful and interesting, there was just too much coincidence in the violent coming together of the different characters for me to truly enjoy it. Maybe I need to take a break from violent novels.

    Roger Miller
    I love anything Lis Wiehl and April Henry writes. Lethal Beauty is a mystery of District attorney, Mia Quinn. Enjoyed to who different angle of human trafficking, drugs and the plight of illegal drugs. Was disappointed in unlikely and abrupt end of the book.

    Betsy Ray
    I really liked this book, but felt like the ending was too rushed.

    Trust your instinct. Enjoyable murder mystery

    Loved the Mia Quinn series, will be reading more by Ms. Wiehl and Ms. Henry.

    I have read the previous two books in the Mia Quinn series and couldn’t wait to dive into Lethal Beauty. I love the character of Mia Quinn and couldn’t wait to watch her use in her investigative skills to solve another murder or as in the case of Lethal Beauty, three different mysteries that might be tied together. Wiehl’s writing is direct and very easy to follow along. I got lost in the storyline created by Wiehl in the city of Seattle. The story had a good balance between prose and dial [...]

    5 beautifully lethal stars!In all honesty, the series was a basic detective-prosecutor tandem. It was even delivered in a classic and standard manner, no complicated writing styles, but that style made these series great to read. It has the combination of intellect and heart. The detective works that Charlie and Mia had operated were resolved and all the T's and I's were crossed and dotted. Their collaboration also had spark that had kept their partnership real. The second leading of Eli helped [...]

    Lethal Beauty is a fiercely intellectual treasure that proves it can be both beautifully passionate as well as ideally pragmatic at the same time while it pulls on your heartstrings every step of the way. We can’t separate the heart from the mind without stripping away all traces of our humanity. Logic needs the emotion of the heart in order to ensure that we do not turn into cold, vacant carbon based shells walking around this world. Evil finds this the most enticing environment to live and t [...]

    Lethal Beauty is the third installment in Lis Wiehl’s Mia Quinn Mystery series. I have listened to all three books on audio and have enjoyed them all. Running throughout the series is the mystery behind Seattle prosecutor Mia Quinn’s husband’s death. This fact and the ongoing impact on Mia’s personal and professional life from the loss of her husband makes me recommend that you begin at the beginning. Otherwise you will miss some crucial pieces to the story.The action begins in the court [...]

    A legal thriller that's sure to keep you turning pages. It opens with riveting courtroom scenes that showcase Mia's talent as a prosecutor and her heart as a justice seeker. And even though a legal setting is foreign to me, Wiehl does a great job of capturing the environment without burdening the reader in technicalities. Put me in mind of Erin Reagan from the TV show Blue Bloods if that's a helpful reference for you. I love Mia's gumption and determination to fight for what's right. She doesn't [...]

    I think April Henry and Lis Wiehl delivered a very good, knowledgable and current book. I think adults should read it for the sake of awareness!! There are some very serious underground issues that are dealt with in this book. I also loved Charles because he is a real man who is messy, down to earth and such a believable character! I loved Gabe too and the realism within that part of the story, as well. Though, I secretly wished that my son would listen to me as well as Mia's did sometimes. If I [...]

The book opens with Mia chatting with her best friend and colleague, Colleen Miller. A gunshot is heard over the phone and Mia listens in horror as Colleen is brutally murdered. The DA asks her to head up the investigation.Initially, Mia is ambivalent, bein [...]
