Act of Betrayal

As a hurricane bears down on Miami, a crime reporter confronts the mystery of her own father’s past: “[An] irresistible series” (Kirkus Reviews).
When Miami crime reporter Britt Montero reports a missing teenager, she discovers that the case may be related to a string of unsolved disappearances. As Britt delves into the baffling case, an old mystery opens new wounds: she unexpectedly meets two men who knew her deceased father—who was executed long ago in a Cuban jail.
Through them, Britt learns that he left a diary identifying the man who betrayed him. But the diary isn’t easily possessed: Anyone who finds it seems to be marked for murder. At the height of a terrifying category five hurricane, Britt needs to face the man who betrayed her father in order to uncover more than one truth, but her hunger for justice may turn her into the next victim.
From the Edgar Award–nominated and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Corpse Had a Familiar Face, this compelling crime thriller “deftly captures the matter-of-fact quality of the police beat” (The New York Times).
“[An] extremely likable heroine.” —Publishers Weekly
