Supreme Betrayal by Mark Bello follows a young woman who, after a rare night out, is viciously attacked at a party. Frightened and alone, she manages to get away but has to stumble through a party practically nude due to his brutality. Years later, her attacker is in a position where he would be able to do what he wants and hurt who he wants as a judge on the supreme court. However, Hayley’s got a plan. Will she get the justice she so deserves?
This book wastes no time getting to the heart of the drama and in so doing ensures that you are enthralled right from the beginning. No warning, just bam! Right in your face. But it has to be that way to convey the full weight of what happens to Hayley. Many teenage girls find themselves in dangerous situations and at the mercy of certain men who crave power. Bello portrays Hayley as a strong and tenacious character that is empathetic and is easy to empathize with. She’s a character that always felt authentic and one that I was rooting for throughout this riveting book. Oliver’s character is, of course, upsetting, pretending that he has a perfect life and that he’s a gentleman when he’s anything but the perfect gentleman. I would say that I hate his character, but it is because his character is so vividly developed.
The book’s themes are heavy but handled in a respectful manner while still being entertaining. I felt a connection with Hayley and wanted her to find peace and wanted Oliver to face justice so that he wouldn’t hurt innocent women and ruin their lives. I felt like this would make a great Lifetime Network Movie as the drama high and the emotions are palpable. The author was able to piece together a story that is both engaging and rings true because of real events that happen to people.
Supreme Betrayal by Mark Bello is an engrossing legal thriller that is hard to put down and even harder to forget.
