Book Review: The Betrayal A Precinct 11 Novel by Jerry Jenkins

Boon Drake is back in the second book of the Precinct 11 Series. It picks up right where The Brotherhood left off and takes you on a non-stop ride of mystery, action, heart and the hunt for the truth. Drake has taken down the heads of the biggest street gangs and organized crime units and barely escaped with his life. Now he is back and it soon becomes apparent something is not right. When his girlfriend Haeley is arrested, he has no choice but to put himself back into the game and find out the truth, even if it‘s not what he wanted to hear. He doesn’t know who he can trust and who he shouldn’t. He has to rely on his mind and his heart to lead him through and to stay alive. Enemies are friends and friends are enemies in this exciting story of a cop who has loved, lost and pressed on with his faith.

Jerry Jenkins has done a wonderful job with the sequel to The Brotherhood. It flowed from one book to the next perfectly and left me griping the edge of my seat the entire time. I couldn’t put the book down until I had devoured it from cover to cover.  The Betrayal is filled with action, heart and comfort.

  1. Shellie,
    Good afternoon! I came across your blog while doing some research for some clients I'm working with, and saw that you are listed as a Christian book reviewer (found here Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer both have new books coming out in October called Whispers of Hope and God is able (respectively), and I wanted to see if you might be interested in reviewing one or both. In case you'd like to consider reviewing these I have included additional information about them below.

    Please let me know if you're interested in reviewing one or both of the books on your blog and I'll be happy to mail you a copy. We also have copies available for giveaways if you're interested in hosting one. We're aiming for reviews to post in November.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    God Is Able, Priscilla Shirer

    Got an IMPOSSIBLE situation? IMPOSSIBLE. IMPENETRABLE. UNCHANGEABLE. Maybe so . . . until God gets involved. No matter the details of your circumstance, His raw power potential and immeasurable ability refuse to cower in the face of any challenge. Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing. Not even that thing. This is the uplifting, well-reasoned answer from New York Times best-selling author Priscilla Shirer—not a denial of life’s adversities and troubles, but a biblical reminder that God is always up to great things, even when His great things are greater then instant remedies and visible change. He is a God who cares . . . and a God who CAN. Believe it. Experience it. God Is Able.

    Whispers of Hope, Beth Moore

    Scripture tells us to pray without ceasing, but how in the world do we do that? In fact, how should we effectively pray to begin with?

    Best-selling author Beth Moore addresses these practical and pervasive matters in Whispers of Hope by walking readers through an easy to remember and apply method of prayer, coupled with seventy daily devotionals and followed by prompts to put this prayer method into practice.

    Indeed, Whispers of Hope teaches the manifestation process of powerful Word-saturated prayer in response to a daily Bible reading. In turn, you will better understand how devotional reading and prayer are central to a stronger relationship with God.
