Betrayals, a compelling political conspiracy mystery thriller, heralds the return of FBI star agent, Jack Del Rio, who is perhaps the only man in America who can stop the strings of assassinations and conspiracies that threaten to topple the entire government administration and bring the United States under the thumb of evil dictatorship.
Unable to trust even his closest friends and allies in the Bureau, Jack must first survive multiple attempts on his own life then sort out the evil doers who have wormed their way into top positions and do this in time to save the President of the United States – who may just be one of the conspirers himself. It’s arace to the finish and the devil takes the hindmost.
