Coming Fall 2021

In Betrayal at the Border, attorney Zachary Blake tackles two cases that strike at the heart of our nation's contentious immigration debate.

In Riverview, Michigan, undocumented immigrants Miguel and Mary Carmen Gonzalez are determined to realize the American dream. They find jobs at a local filler plant, have children, and lead an all-American life, that is until ICE raids their plant.

Canan and Karim Izady are naturalized citizens of the United States. They have immigrated legally from Kurdistan and have an American-born daughter, Hana. Unable to persuade her mother to follow the young family to America, Canan travels with Hana to an ISIS hotbed so the child can meet her grandmother for the first time. With the war over, what could possibly go wrong?

Two unique immigrant families, two uniquely dangerous consequences of America’s dysfunctional immigration system. Enter Zachary Blake, superstar lawyer. 

But, for the first time in a long time, Blake is out of his element—immigration law calls for the expertise of his specialist/partner, Marshall Mann. Together, two extraordinary lawyers take on a terrorist network and a broken immigration system. And crack investigator Micah Love returns, racing against the clock to prevent tragic circumstances. In this politically charged anti-immigrant international climate, will a Hail Mary be their only move?

Award-winning legal thriller author, Mark M. Bello, pits our nation's broken immigration system against important human and social justice rights issues, spinning a tale that shines a bright light on the everyday fears of immigrants all over the United States. Can Blake, Mann, and Love prevent a Betrayal at the Border?
