The Betrayal (Precinct 11), Book review

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.

My review:

This latest novel in the Precinct 11 series starts off slowly but you soon find the plot gripping and it is a hard one to put down. In true Jerry B. Jenkins fashion, 'The Betrayal' is a story with rapid fire action but as always reflecting many family values and this is why I like to read his books!

Things are not looking good for Boone Drake. The injury he received whilst protecting former street gang boss Pascual Candelario, now turned good guy, will probably earn him early retirement but it is the last thing he wants right now. There is an informer amongst the Police department and it makes Boone all the more determined to remain on active duty.  The more so since it jeopardizes his attempt to get Candelario to a secure location!

Whilst CPD investigates this obvious leak, Boone's girlfriend becomes the prime suspect and it now it appears someone wants Boone out of the CPD for good.
Near exhaustion, Boone forces himself to find the source of this betrayal and the guilty party! His life and others depend on his survival skills!
Watch out for the climax!

A Christian writer who never compromise his faith, Jenkins has a knack for appealing to all sorts of readers and in the end, you know good will triumph over evil!

A perfect 5 stars!
