Book Description

Detective Boone Drake has just masterminded the most massive sting in Chicago history, bringing down the heads of not only the biggest street gangs in the city but also the old crime syndicate. The story is the biggest in decades, and the Chicago Police Department must protect the key witness at all costs. Despite top secret plans to transfer the witness ahead of his testimony before the grand jury, an attempt is made on his life. And the person suspected of leaking this information may be one of the CPD’s own.


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Detective Boone Drake has just pulled off the most massive sting in Chicago history, bringing down the heads of not only the biggest street gangs in the city but also the old crime syndicate. The story is the biggest in decades, and the Chicago Police Department must protect the key witness at all costs. Yet despite top secret plans to transfer the witness ahead of his testimony before the grand jury, an attempt is made on his life.

It soon becomes apparent that someone inside the Chicago PD leaked information to the shooter. As evidence mounts and suspicion points too close to home, Boone doesn’t know whom he can trust. An investigation reveals that the turncoat might be someone very close to him, even someone he loves—or is the guilty party just trying to cover up corruption at the highest level of the police department? Trusting the wrong person could prove fatal.

The Betrayal by Jerry B. Jenkins

After leading the sting to bring down one of the most notorious gangs in Chicago, life should be feeling sweet for Boone Drake. And it would, except for a minor detailing like sustaining a serious gunshot wound to his shoulder and learning that someone is suspecting his girlfriend, Haeley, of leaking classified information. Hiring the best defense attorney Boone knows of, he is determined to prove Haeley innocent. To discover otherwise would truly be a betrayal of the worst kind.

Those who read my review of The Brotherhood may remember that I was not too fond of the book. Too many times it felt cheesy and I felt the Christian element felt more forced than natural. So why did I read the sequel to a book I didn't like? Despite the cheesiness, the story held some promise and it certainly ended on strong note considering the rest of the story.

Unlike The Brotherhood which started slowly and had some pacing issues, The Betrayal has a strong opening and keeps up a brisk pace for the majority of the story. One of the things that helped was that each of the major characters had strong goals. In The Brotherhood, Drake had a goal, but the rest of the characters were much more passive. Here they are all pursuing a goal, and that goal is much more pressing.

Though mildly predictable, Jenkins still made me feel connected to the story, which can be hard when I didn't enjoy the first one. Though not an amazing cop story, The Betrayal is a good improvement on the first. If you enjoyed The Brotherhood you will likely enjoy this one, and if you didn't like The Brotherhood, you may be surprised.

3.5/5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jenkins "Must Read"! August 27, 2011
By Nate
Format:Paperback
Just finished reading an advance copy of Jerry B. Jenkin's book "The Betrayal." It didn't take long to read because I couldn't put it down! This usually happens with Jenkins' novels. I have his entire Left Behind series and this will be a wonderful addition to my library. This mystery novel follows detective Boone Drake as he unravels the clues behind a near-fatal attempt on the life of his mobster star witness. While protecting the witness, Boone is shot, then framed for the incident. As he chases down the leads, who can he trust? Is there a mole within the police department itself? Can he trust his current love interest or friends? Each new clue uncovers a new twist. His faith is tested as he painfully races against time to protect his witness, clear his name, and identify the culprit. You won't be disappointed with this book. Thank you, Jerry, for another suspenseful novel portraying a life-like hero with true grit, faith, and tenacity!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced crime drama of good vs evil July 10, 2012
By Lindsay
Format:Paperback
This book is definitely fast paced. The whole book takes place in about two weeks, so you're not given much time to connect with the characters before you're thrust into the drama. After starting the book I realized it was a sequel, and I felt a bit clueless and out of the loop for the first few chapters.
As the plot moves along, the main character, a cop named Boone Drake, faces betrayal and treachery in friendships, relationships and even amongst the "brotherhood" of the force. However, since I did not read the first book and was not familiar with the characters, it was really hard to distinguish whom I was supposed to trust and for whom I should be rooting. So I would definitely suggest reading the first book beforehand if you're interested in this story (I have not done it yet, but I'm sure it would've improved the book greatly if I had).
That being said, I did enjoy the fast-paced drama and it was definitely an enjoyable and entertaining read.

He had been shot and almost killed, his girlfriend is being framed and he has no idea which of his co workers he can trust, other than that Boone Drake is having a great month. In Jerry B. Jenkins new detective novel you take an excellent ride with a detective from Chicago's gang enforcement section of the Chicago Police department. After getting shot Boone Drake needs to find out who arranged for him and his star witness to be killed. He needs to find out why they are trying to frame his girlfriend for something she didn't do, or maybe she did. The twists and turns of the new book "The Betrayal" will have you wondering what is coming next and who is doing what to whom.

I find humor is Jerry's ability to use Chicago related names in different roles and to colorfully describe what is going on to the point that you feel as though you are there. There where times I wanted to call Boone through out the book just to let him know what was going on, Jerry made him feel like an old friend that you wish you could help.

Among the pages of "The Betrayal" is not only a good detective story but a story of perseverance and a smattering of biblical truths. I found this a very interesting and entertaining read and it helped me get through some sleepless night. It makes me want more of Detective Boone Drake, Haeley Lamonica and Max. This is a must read and the twists and turns will make you not want to put it down
