*BLOG TOUR* Betrayal – Lilja Sigurdardottir ★★★★★

Blurb; Burned out and traumatised by her horrifying experiences around the world, aid worker Úrsula has returned to Iceland. Unable to settle, she accepts a high-profile government role in which she hopes to make a difference again.
But on her first day in the post, Úrsula promises to help a mother seeking justice for her daughter, who had been raped by a policeman, and life in high office soon becomes much more harrowing than Úrsula could ever have imagined. A homeless man is stalking her – but is he hounding her, or warning her of some danger? And why has the death of her father in police custody so many years earlier reared its head again?
As Úrsula is drawn into dirty politics, facing increasingly deadly threats, the lives of her stalker, her bodyguard and even a witch-like cleaning lady intertwine. Small betrayals become large ones, and the stakes are raised ever higher…

Exploring the harsh worlds of politics, police corruption and misogyny, Betrayal is a relevant, powerful, fast-paced thriller that feels just a little bit too real…

My Review; Where do I begin with this one? Wow. Amazing! Beautifully translated. This book is packed full of old cases, lies, crime, deaths, scandals and politics both from the past and the present. Brilliantly written. Very impressed! I flew through it and really enjoyed it. I loved how the story was laid out and presented. A brilliant read. I loved how everything from the past got brought up again and solved. I enjoyed trying to figure out all the different mysteries.

The cover is also gorgeous! Giving me Frozen Disney vibes. Lilja sure knows how to write a belter of a book, has not let me down yet and my expectations are high. Highly recommend! A real page turner and it contains short chapters too which are my favourite! Bingo. Absolutely loved it. One that will be hard to forget. A well deserved five stars from me.
