Betrayal by Gregg Olsen
A Seattle native who lives in Washington State, Gregg has seen the darker side of the Pacific Northwest and knows a little more about the area than your average guy. “There is something dark and beautiful about the Pacific Northwest," he says. “We seem to have an overabundance of serial killers out here–so many, in fact, sometimes I wonder if they have a secret convention in Washington.”
A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with 13 books and sales of over one-million copies to his credit, Gregg made his young-adult fiction debut with Envy. The follow-up, Betrayal, will be published in September 2012.
Betrayal features real-life crime-solving techniques, heart-stopping suspense, plenty of red herrings, hard-hitting ethical questions, and information about the Amanda Knox case that inspired the novel. As the crime unravels, so does the twins' past…and they must face off against a family member who may unexpectedly have carried out the worst betrayal of all.
Having more experience with their abilities, the twins are able to use this important asset to solve it. If solving a mystery for their fellow classmates is not enough, they have their own with their absent mother. Finding more information about her actually opened more questions.
The murder mystery is gripping and truly interesting. The fact that the mysteries in the Empty Coffin series are based off real cases, it heightens the suspense and realness to it. Even with the twins’ paranormal-like facets, it still felt realistic. Gregg’s ability to intertwine the murder mystery, the twin’s abilities, and the secrets of their family all came smoothly and played well along with the plot. The murder within Betrayal opens with questions and closes with full answers. However, the story of Haley and Taylor continues as readers get more insight into their secretive family. In the first book, Envy, readers experienced the talented writing etiquette of Gregg. Betrayal continues to shine upon his brilliant crime writing skills and the third book, Guilty, is certain to maintain the attributes of its predecessors.
