4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Phil Robertshaw VINE VOICE on 5 Nov. 2006
Format: Paperback
David Hosp follows the excellent Dark Harbour with a new thriller which contains enough political conspiracy theories to appeal to John Grisham fans looking for a different spin on the genre.

The Betrayed is by no means a legal thriller, and bears little resemblance to Dark Harbour (we are introduced to entirely new characters, Detectives Cassian and Train), but after a slow start, it becomes a very good story. We follow Cassian and Train as they investigate a murder, an investigation which proves far more complex than would first appear. There is no shortage of suspects and once the plot has got going, Hosp cranks up the tension very well.

As in Dark Harbour, there's an undercurrent of sexual tension between lead characters, as Cassian struggles to remain professional in his dealings with Sydney, the dead woman's sister. Sydney is a likeable character, albeit one who slightly stretches the bounds of credibility, and her own investigations are key to the development of the plot.

I mostly enjoyed The Betrayed, and the only irritating aspect was that I worked out the denouement. It's hard to tell whether this is a result of reading thrillers on a regular basis and getting to know how authors' minds work, or whether it was just too obvious. But that aside, I still recommend The Betrayed as a good thriller, and will be sure to read Hosp's next effort.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Really enjoyed this novel. the Betrayed, for me, was more enjoyable than Dark Harbour. I tend to bypass anything that has the word "terrorist' in it. Give me a real good old mystery any day. I did guess the 'bad guy' but as a writer, that's par for the course.

...than Dark Harbour, his previous novel. I'd hoped for an improvement but instead of more I got less...page-wise certainly...and it's just as hokey and unbelievable in parts as its predecessor.

Actually, there were some inspired bits of business in Dark Harbour...there's none of that going on here. But instead, as with the first novel, it has an obsessive/irritating romance at its core with police procedure being compromised as a result. Compromised in a way that is not believable.

As a second effort it didn't show any growth except stunted. I won't be reading a third by David Hosp.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book difficult to put down. The start is a little slow but that doesnt really detract from the book which is one to keep you up at night or stuck in your deckchair on holiday. The plot has plenty of twists and the ending is comprehensive. I always like a detailed ending where you are not left to fill in the gaps. I hope his next few books are as good as this one. Well done.

Format: Paperback
When you start this book you think its going to be a typical detective story, but its not, its really intresting, the cops in it even thou under pressure to close the case no that all is not what is seems, and so carry on looking at other suspects, i couldn't put this book down, and the 2 main cops have got such a way about them, its just a really good read, i haven't read Dark Harbour YET!! But if you looking for a good read you won't be dissapointed.
