Felix's descendants, the Sullivans, hold on to the statue until Malachi loses it to Anita Waye, a black widow who slept with him in order to steal it.

    Malachi and his siblings Gideon and Rebecca not only vow to get it back but they intend to find the other two statues, uniting THE THREE FATES before selling them. The Sullivan siblings meet their significant others while pursuing the statues, not yet realizing that Anita, who is one step ahead of them, will kill everyone who gets in her way. The group must find a way of outwitting her without anyone getting hurt in the process.

The book moves at a rapid pace so nobody will get bored during this fascinating read. The Sullivan siblings and their significant others are a varied group that makes for lively scenes and interactions and turns THREE FATES into one of Nora Roberts' best mainstream novels.
