Here’s what an early reviewer said about Betrayed by Shelly Knox
[Betrayed] was an exciting but very descriptive book about a serial killer who targets women who are on the verge of giving birth. He kills then removes the living baby, which he then sells to a broker.
There is another angle to the story that is even grittier but ties in over the course of the novel.
Here is an excerpt that might serve the reader well: “Keri poured a glass of orange juice and added champagne to sip while she read more of Piper’s journal. The journal was too hard to read without alcohol. After the last couple of readings, she’d decided she wanted her senses dulled a bit.”
With that in mind, the book is very well written with a plot that just won’t let go, with chill factors that reach pretty high. If you enjoy books with a lot of tension, and you don’t mind R+ Rated descriptions, then go buy this book.
Betrayed officially launches on Tuesday, October 15th.
You’ll find Betrayed online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
PIPER MORGAN loses everything for the sake of a story. Two years later, can she regain her life by chasing another serial killer with her ex-fiancé?
Piper is plagued with horrific memories of her frightening kidnapping and rape. She flounders while writing a lifestyle column until her boss insists she handle a missing-person case which simultaneously thrills and terrifies her. Forced to leave the safety of the office, Piper and her service dog, Tazzie, join in the search for the missing pregnant woman.
Texas Ranger JAXSON WYATT conceals his aggravation over his haunted past by focusing on his job and not his personal life. Then the ex-fiancé he failed to protect shows up as a reporter on his case. Jaxson is determined not to waste this opportunity for a second chance with Piper.
As the search for the missing woman continues, Tazzie’s specialized scent training leads Piper and Jaxson to a gruesome burial site. The bodies of several missing pregnant women are found—another serial killer case. But where are their babies?
