Review: Betrayal By: Gregg Olsen

BetrayalBetrayal by Gregg Olsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Betrayal is the contiuation in the Empty Coffin Series and just like Envy, you will not be let down.

A murder has occurred in Port Gamble. During a Halloween party an exchange student, Olivia has been stabbed multiple times. Every one in the small community is on high alert, afterall it had to be one of them. Hayley and Taylor Ryan sense the disturbance and try as only they can to put the pieces together.

The inspiration of the story stands through the book, the Amanda Knox case. Brianna Connors, the girl whose house the murder was committed in, the room which Olivia's body was in, the girl who makes out with her boyfriend as investigators are collecting evidence, she even goes as far as doing yoga in the police interrogation room - not too hard to see the similiarities. But is Brianna guilty, her boyfriend?

The twins also start to uncover a few secrets that not only had their parents held shut, but possibly a few others, including Colton's mother. Opening up the past, brings more than they might be prepared for.

I really enjoy the writing style of Mr. Olsen, the characters, the mystery, the twists and turns. I recommend the Empty Coffin series for a great read, but even a social commentary.
