Pulled over in America? When you're white, you might get a ticket. When you're black, you might end up dead.

 

In a fictional Michigan town, a man is pulled over by the local police. The driver wonders: “What did I do wrong?” The officer asks for I.D.; the driver casually mentions he legally carries a gun. The officer panics—confusion reigns—shots ring out—an innocent man lays bleeding to death and the incident is captured on video.

 

The shooting becomes the national headline—the dead man is black—the shooter is white. A community is thrown into chaos. Protestors on both sides of the racial divide take to the streets.

 

A widow struggles to make sense of senseless tragedy. She turns to high-profile trial lawyer, Zachary Blake. Together, they dare to fight city hall. Will police lie to protect the status quo?

 

Small Great Things meets The Hate U Give in this explosive new social justice legal thriller. 

Available as an e-book, paperback, and audiobook.

Reviews

"If I had the power to personally hand out an award, I would hand it to Mark M. Bello for his continuing success, great leading man and plotlines that take reality, bring it to light, and show that, in fact, good guys do still exist in a world that seems to thrive on negativity.

After reading Books 1 through 4, the only bad thing about this series is having to wait for the next book." ~ Feathered Quill

"Mr. Bello’s writing is so good that I felt like I had just lived through this firsthand. This is one of those novels that you will think about for days and days after reading."

"There is so much more to the story with many twist and turns. The book is well written and keeps the reader engaged and makes you feel like you are right there as the story unfolds. I highly recommed this book which part of a series."

"Compelling, heartbreaking, frustrating, and hard to put down. “Betrayal in Black” is the kind of novel that should be talked about because it addresses so many of the issues that we see today, racism in particular."
