In August 1997, Hayley Larson, a 16-year-old teen who usually followed her parents’ rules, decided it was time to break a few. She went with her friends to a lakefront mansion where alcohol, drugs, and sex were plentiful. The wealthy parents were out of town, and their sons were known for their wild parties. When Hayley needed to use the bathroom, she was sexually assaulted by the 22-year-old college son, Oliver Wilkinson, and his friend, Shane Marbury. Although she reported the assault, no legal actions were taken. Fast forward to 2020 – Oliver Wilkinson is now the Republicans' choice for the next Supreme Court justice. When attorney Zachary Blake was approached by Hayley and her husband to bring this incident to light, he gladly takes the case. In the legal thriller, Supreme Betrayal, Mark M. Bello crafts an exciting plot with many twists and turns.
This story takes place in the Detroit area where Hayley and Zachary live, as well as in Washington, DC. The Senate hearings are filled with surprising moments as Oliver and his cohorts take every step imaginable for confirmation. While the cast of characters is large, each person has a well-developed, distinctive personality. Zachary Blake is a brilliant and complex personality – sometimes compassionate and other times disparaging. His private investigator Micah is hard-working and perceptive. Clare Gibson, who is in charge of the FBI investigation, is a strong advocate for the truth. The pace of the story is fast, and a reader cannot put the book down until the ending is revealed. Author Mark M. Bello captures the current political climate with an adventurous twist in the novel, Supreme Betrayal. A great read!
