Victoria “Tori” Anderson has come all the way from sunny Florida to find drug kingpin Danny Wilcox and now she’s in terrible danger.
McCarthy is a fine storyteller and she had me hooked from the start. I want to read more of her work.
Cold Betrayal is a rollercoaster of a book as Tori turns this way and that trying to decide who and what is most important to her. Well written and fast paced, this will appeal to those readers who like danger and romance rolled into one.
Tori’s stubborn support of Danny is psychologically fascinating, and ultimately McCarthy delivers compelling reasons for her outlook. Late in the novel, undercover officer Jeff wonders, “Who could compete with that kind of love?” McCarthy offers an answer to that question and so many others with satisfying plot twists.
The novel has a cinematic quality as compelling, stylish characters like Mario and Chantel are set against the frosty landscape of Quebec City and the woods beyond. The early chapters in and around a rustic cabin where Tori encounters Ben get the reader hooked. What follows delivers so many unexpected moments that I’d ruin them by providing too many details. Let’s just say ultimately the internal crisis of Tori’s allegiance between Danny and those who have ostensibly aided her (with the help of a clever maneuver by Inspector Bouchard) is deftly resolved. Cold Betrayal is fun, smart, and thrilling … a terrific read.
