***** 5 STARS
You don’t mess with Rosie Gilmour and get away with it.
Crime reporter Rosie Gilmour is back at The Post, bruised and battered from her last investigation but determined to find missing barmaid Wendy Graham. Convinced that Wendy is the key to an explosive new story, Rosie’s search leads her deep into the dangerous world of Glasgow’s Ulster Volunteer Force. This time, Rosie will find herself at the mercy of the most vicious gangsters she’s ever encountered.
Has she met her match?
I have really enjoyed this series so far and was really looking forward to reading the next instalment after I finished screams in the dark last year. And from the moment I first starting reading the first few chapters I knew I was in for a real treat and it took me no time to finish the book and catch up with what has been going on with lead character Rosie Gilmour. Betrayed is the fourth book in the series and we catch up with Rosie after her last investigation, Screams In the Dark book 3, Rosie is now back at work and ready to get stuck in to the next harrowing story and adventure. This time it focuses on barmaid Wendy Graham who goes missing, Rosie starts to delve into it and as usual finds herself in a situation where she may have to take a few risks.
Another major storyline in Betrayed delves into matters concerning Glasgow’s UVF and it’s not a pretty picture.Because when Rosie begins to dig deeper into the UVF, she comes across more people involved in both the UVF, and Wendy’s life will take Rosie into dangerous waters as she searches for a major story for the newspaper. Betrayed like all the other Rosie Gilmour novel s moves the action between two countries Glasgow and this time Spain which keeps the action and the suspense rolling throughout, I can honestly say that this book was a first class read and that it has everything I want from a Crime book and more, Great characters, bundles of drama and the writing is top notch as usual. I absolutely loved Betrayed, I think it is the best Rosie Gilmour novel so far and would suggest if you haven’t read any of them you get started with book one in the series you will not regret it!
