IWIC Book Spotlight on “Betrayed” – an historical WWII thriller
When her best friend, Rachel, is killed, Sabine is sure her brother Otto will soon find the murderer. A policeman inside the Regime, Otto has difficulty hiding his animosity to the Nazis, but even he is worried about Sabine’s relationship with Rachel’s brother, Ari, especially when Rachel’s death brings them closer together. But it’s a dangerous time to be a young German woman in love with a Jewish man, even more so when there’s a serial killer at large in Berlin, a killer who leaves no clues and who doesn’t care whether his victims are Aryans or Jews. As war clouds gather, Berlin becomes even more dangerous, the police are no closer to finding the killer and Ari and his parents refuse to leave until they know why Rachel was murdered. Sabine continues to ignore Otto and her parents’ concerns but events are about to force her into making a heartbreaking choice, one that will haunt not just her but everyone around her. Betrayed is an intriguing tale of murder, love, danger, truth and – of course – betrayal, set in war-torn Berlin and post-war Jerusalem.
