9781934609293: Betrayal (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)

Eva and Jonas are two separate pots of poison, both coming inexorably to a boil. For Eva, the poison stems from the dawning realization that her cozy family life has been a lie, that her loving husband loathes her and has been having an affair. Jonas, for years the keeper of his parents? secrets, has transferred all his obsessive yearnings for connection to a woman who now lies in a coma. Both Eva and Jonas are carrying enough rage and despair to destroy themselves. But when the two of them come together, that destructive potential is magnified to a terrifying extent.

About the Author:

KARIN ALVTEGEN is regarded as one of the most exciting crime writers in Scandinavia. Her second novel Missing, was awarded the premier Scandinavian crime writing award and is being made into a TV series. Betrayal, which has already been published in ten countries, and her next novel, Shame, will be published by Canongate in Autumn 2006. She lives in Stockholm.

From Booklist:

In her second stand-alone published in the U.S. (following Missing, 2008), Swedish author Alvtegen once again proves herself a master of the psychological thriller. Told from the points of view of Eva, a successful working mom who discovers her husband is seeing another woman, and Jonas, an anxious and somewhat unstable young man whose girlfriend lies in a coma, the novel is woven through with the themes of betrayal and revenge. As the increasingly dark and terrible storylines converge, the pace becomes breakneck, even as feelings of misery and revulsion build in the reader. Alvtegen masterfully draws Eva’s and Jonas’ stories together, as both seek revenge for the wrongs done to them. In a powerful and disturbing ending, Alvtegen leaves readers questioning the true meaning of justice. This psychological thriller will be enjoyed by readers who like Asa Larsson’s Rebecca Martinsson series (Black Path, 2008). --Jessica Moyer
