Sabin Willett's first novel, The Deal, was hailed as a worthy successor to the novels of Scott Turow and other masterworks of the literary legal thriller. That sentiment is more than justified for this tightly plotted novel of political corruption, international arms dealing, and assassination.

Now he's made the leap from the courthouse to the White House in an even more accomplished international thriller involving political corruption, multibillion-dollar deal making, kidnapping, and assassination.

Betrayed by her husband, her government, and her powerful boss and mentor, she is abandoned by everyone except her daughter, Isabel. But when the girl is kidnapped, Louisa learns that there is no limit to betrayal's reach--and no limit to what one woman will do to survive it.As the action moves relentlessly from Washington, D.C., to Geneva, Switzerland, from Dubai to Paris to Cody, Wyoming, it becomes evident that Louisa and her daughter are mere pawns in an international bribery scheme of unprecedented proportions. But when the pawns refuse to fall, the bigger pieces begin to topple.Charged with political savvy, shrewd characterizations, and a tense, tightly constructed plot, The Betrayal is a thriller of the highest caliber that will further enhance Sabin Willett's growing reputation.

What a ride and what a great read! Edge of the seat stuff... Maybe strains credulity here and there, but who cares! Such a fantastic host of fascinating characters! The world weary newsman forgetting his aching back as he unravels a dark conspiracy, the truck driver with a heart of gold... Corny perhaps but it works, especially if you throw a resourceful teenager in the mix.

Other reviewers have indicated that this book invites a willing suspension of belief, and I echo that sentiment. At times I felt that the suspension was a bit much to ask for and even less to justify which is what, except for one other aspect of the authors writing style, cost it one star in my rating. The story starts a bit slowly and confusingly, but you are soon drawn into the dilemna that confronts the heroine and her 12 year old daughter. What starts as a puzzlement (why didn't I know I had 60 million dollars in a foriegn bank account) soon turns dangerous and deadly. Someone involved with the government of the United States is using Louisa as a pawn and that person has lots of people willing to kill anyone that is a threat to them. Uncovering who the enemy is takes most of the novel and involves numerous well drawn characters, some whom you love to love and others that you love to hate. Sabin Willet has developed a writing style in this book that first takes you through an episode from the perspective of a viewer and then follows with the same episode from the point of view of one of the participants in the episode. I found this style initially confusing and eventually time wasting . The ending that Willet devises makes the trk there worth the effort. It is well worth reading and I shall look forward to his next effort.

seller.

Willett is so, so good. I've read all three of his books and I rank this a close second to "Present Value."

The plot is intricate but plausible.

What he excels at is both dialogue and character development.

He perfectly draws the truck driver character. He also gives a detailed description of an industrial accident at a paper mill which reads just spot on. The reference to the "Renoir" woman is also a great touch.

I also just love the references to the classics.

I put Willett in the same category as Scott Turow and close behind Tom Wolfe. He is that good.

This book should be made into a movie as it is better than most of what gets onto the screen.

And considering that this was published in 1999 his foresight regarding Islamist terrorism is even more remarkable.

A can't miss read.

The reader is never betrayed in this masterfully put together puzzle of a thriller. The plot captures your mind, the characters hold your heart, and the twists wear out your energy -- in a good way. A fun read.

The Betrayal is a terrific read. Plenty of suspense, action, characters to hate and characters to root for. I found myself regularly pleased with Willett's "turn of a phrase" and detailed but not boring descriptions. If available, I plan to download this author's other two books.

Great read. Intelligent, resourceful heroine who does not simper and is not coy. An engaging plot, but not too complicated, with well-paced action. The characters are defined and recognisable. There is no gratuitous, explicit sex scenes, and the use of profanity is sparse and has a purpose. I'd like a second helping, please.

Sabin Willett is a very smart guy and a fine writer, but this book fails by any measure. It's one cliche after another. It's bloated. It's tiresome. It makes me wonder whether it got anywhere near an editor's desk.
I was impressed by Sabin Willett's first effort, The Deal, and awaited his next book very impatiently. The Betrayal more than satisfied. I love his plot, reality can be suspended when it can be believed possible. The way he fleshes out his characters makes them visible in your mind. You like the 'good guys' and you feel the evil of the bad ones. I loved the child, Isabel. It is so refreshing to read of a 12 year old who has good manners, grammar and a large vocabulary. The way she uses "like" keeps her within the limits of her age! Our Renoir lady, heroine, grows stronger, wiser and more confident as we read of her travails. I read The Betrayal as slowly and deliberately as possible, though the temptation to rush was compelling. It is a book to savor, which I did. Well done, Sabin. Hopefully, you have another book in progress.
