Off the Shelf: The Betrayal (Precinct 11)

The Betrayal (Precinct 11)

By Jerry B. Jenkins

Detective Boone Drake has just masterminded the most massive sting in Chicago history, bringing down the heads of not only the biggest street gangs in the city but also the old crime syndicate. The story is the biggest in decades, and the Chicago Police Department must protect the key witness at all costs. Despite top secret plans to transfer the witness ahead of his testimony before the grand jury, an attempt is made on his life. And the person suspected of leaking this information may be one of the CPD’s own.

This is the second in a series. When my copy came in the mail this week, my two teens devoured it like sharks going after chum. (In fact, they quarreled over who got to read it first.) My daughter said Jenkins is on the level of Steven James, author of The Pawn, but that Jerry gets the nod because he is a Christian.

UPDATE: Here’s Jerry’s reply:

“Would James get the nod if he was a Christian? Because he is. In fact he’ll be speaking for us soon.”

Well, you learn something every day! Jerry heads the Christian Writers Guild and Jenkins Entertainment.
