“Betrayal” by Sharon Brownlie was a tough read. It starts with a brutal scene between a heroine-addicted prostitute, Helen, and her pimp. As we follow Helen we learn more about her life and her past and watch her taking revenge.
What strikes me most about this book is the great characterisation. The investigating police officer and Helen are multi-dimensional characters, they aren’t just good and bad and simplifying stereotypes. This book really makes you think deeply. At times I found the book uncomfortable but always interesting and hard to put down.
I would definitely recommend this one.
