When Sydney Chaplin left D.C. nine years ago for college, she vowed never to return. But when her sister is found brutally murdered, she finds herself drawn once again into the shadowy web of her wealthy, powerful family. Joined by Washington detectives Jack Cassian and Darius Train, and driven by her need to know the truth about her sister's death, Sydney will risk everything--her life and her family's future-to find the answers. From the gritty streets and crack dens of the District's inner city, to the posh country clubs and gilded offices of the nation's political elite, Sydney, Cassian, and Train must slip deep into a labyrinth of money, power, and deceit to uncover a decades-old conspiracy that could rock the nation.

"The mutilated body of Elizabeth Creay, investigative reporter for THE WASHINGTON POST, is found by her daughter. District Detectives Jack Cassian and Darius Train join Elizabeth's sister to uncover motives entangling the wealthy and powerful with ex-convicts, deranged doctors, and crack addicts. Richard Ferrone's portentous tones set the mood for this dark story of murder, abuse, and political cover-ups. Ferrone makes the self-conscious writing sound less so, and he does wonders with the crisp exchanges between characters. His range of tones provides a softness for the female characters and a raw, rough quality that makes the worst criminals believable. Ferrone's reading makes THE BETRAYED exceptional listening. S.J.H.
