Betrayal 2 is the intriguing intertwining of three lives. The lynch pin of the story is crime boss, Stone. Detective Crystal Winters took some hush money in order to keep tabs on a case her superiors ordered her to drop. Now Stone is blackmailing her, happy to have what he thinks is another dirty cop in his pocket. As she works to find the evidence she needs to clear her name, she and her partner are assigned to a murder with ties to Stone and to a case that her partner had worked 11 years prior. As Winters looks closer she finds what could be ties between her partner and Stone.
Shawna is girlfriend to one of Stone’s local bully boys, until she catches him with another woman and sees him for what he is. Pushed to her limit, resentment for a life of abuse and mistreatment at the hands of men, bubbles over bringing her to Stone’s attention, resulting in some unlikely and deadly partnerships.
Stone is used to being top dog in his neighborhood, but he, and all those close to him, are being hunted by someone who knows Stone’s daily movements very well and has an agenda. As this invisible person closes in on his prey, all three; Winters, Shawna, and Stone, find themselves maneuvering to keep from being pulled under in a riptide of suspense and violence.
As always, I have the luck of coming in mid-way in a series. I am happy to say that this novel stands alone quite well. This is a well written, character driven thriller. All the pieces of a fantastic story fall into place beautifully
