Acts Beyond Redemption is exactly the kind of book that I love to read, and Suzanne Burke is exactly the kind of author who turns me into a raving fangirl.

I like reading books about serial killers, especially when the killer is unusual in some way, or turns out to be someone completely unexpected. Is Sheila responsible for numerous grisly murders, or is it someone else?

This book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys great thrillers that cross the line onto the dark side! This is not a tame little read with a few twists thrown in here and there. This is an intense, complicated story that will keep you guessing all the way through. The characters are well-developed, and quite engaging. Even the “bad guys” are likable on one level or another, depending on how you see them.
All in all, Acts is a book that I highly recommend, and I can’t wait until I’m able to read the sequel. Suzanne Burke is a highly talented author, and there is not a doubt in my mind that she will be around for a very long time.

GENRE: Thriller, psychological, suspense. “Acts Of Betrayal.” Book 2 of the (Unintended Consequences) series.


“Acts Of Betrayal”

In this powerful sequel to Acts Beyond Redemption Nigel Cantrell is back, and he’s out for blood.
One of his team holds on precariously to life, with no guarantees of recovery.

Can those responsible drag him into a nightmare he will struggle to contain?

In a complex dual where oaths taken are forsaken, and promises made are broken beyond repair; he must seek the help of the only people he can trust, people who revere him … and, those that despise him.

Cantrell is efficient and deadly, but even he has ghosts in his past, demons that must be exorcised. And nothing is more demonic than the peril he must now face, as a one man’s maniacal thirst for revenge is uncovered.
A man so enormously powerful, with a hatred so intense, so extreme, that the possible demise of his own species means nothing to him. He will dispense his revenge as his diseased mind sees fit.

Nigel Cantrell and his team do not have failure as an option.

The fate of their country and beyond now rests in their hands.

Can they prevent the final acts of betrayal?

Acts of Betrayal is a psychological thriller and adventure tale that will keep you turning the pages. Be forewarned the book has a complex plot with many moving parts and a large cast of characters to keep track of, a book truly written in a Robert Ludlum-like style. With many twists, turns, and subplots the story will keep those whose reading tastes run to this type of novel on the edge of their seats.

The characters are both authentic and fully developed. The scenes describing covert operations of government agents are credibly written. There is plenty of action and intrigue, more than enough to satisfy the most discriminating psychological thriller fan. The author leaves you guessing right up to the very end, and after reading the conclusion, you’re left with sort of an ah-ha moment where you realize the book ended in exactly the way it had to.

Acts of Betrayal is an entertaining read sure to please.

I love the shorts, especially the ones that cut it straight to the point. This one did. It was clean, clear, and with no trimmings. I picked it up after reading a very long and winding story that used too many words to arrive at a simple point.

Sam, in this story is a girl to my own heart, a no nonsense girl. Bashed in life enough to learn never to take chances. Ben, on the other hand was a careless greedy man, who thought he had hit the jack pot. He played it wrong, and he paid dearly for it. I love shorts, I said that already, and this was good. Thumbs up!
