Award-winning Legal Thriller ‘Betrayal of Faith’ Gets a New Look (that Could Kill…)

A rosary on one side of the scales of justice and a child’s toy on the other, the poignant, new book cover of  ‘Betrayal of Faith’ is breathing new life into award-winning author Mark M. Bello’s 2019  Reader’s Favorite; paving a path for a new generation of ‘ripped from the headlines’ readers and fans.   

A high-speed story of lawyer Zackary Blake’s struggle for redemption, an attempted cover-up and a mother’s fight for justice for her sons who had been harmed by a parish priest, the revised edition of “Betrayal of Faith” is now available on

“I’d like to think I’ve grown as an author since writing the first edition of Betrayal of Faith about 8 years ago,” said Betrayal of Faith author Mark M. Bello. “While Betrayal of Faith is still my most honored and popular novel—its new cover, book description, and edited manuscript are dynamic reflections of that growth.”

And readers love it: “This book was a fun, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable read with a fabulous climax that kept me on the edge of my seat,” said one.  And another review: “This was really a terrific read, a great story line with some amazingly memorable characters.”
