Overview

Darrell Jenkins a.k.a. The Sandman, is known as a legend in the streets of Waterloo, Iowa, experiencing success on both sides of the law.

Sparks fly between the two when they meet during a chance encounter.

 

Things get complicated as Darrell and his crew start a drug war that turns the streets into a war zone.

Not to mention, a mysterious figure lurking in the background hell-bent on revenge.

 

Take a journey deep into the heart of the Midwest in a story full of lust, murder and deception. No one knows how the game will end, but it's certain that when all is said and done, someone will be Betrayed.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
You can have it all, but if love evades you, what's the point? "Betrayed" follows Darrel "The Sandman" Jenkins as he pursues Sherrice Valdez. Love would be complicated enough alone but Darrel's business, one that doesn't agree the most with the law, soon starts to face problems and drama begins to flare up all around him. Darrel has to settle everything around him as they try to break apart, while not spoiling his chance at love. "Betrayed" is riveting urban fiction, highly recommended.

(Spoiler Alert)Betrayed was a very good. I loved the way the paragraphs flowed together. The character of The Sandman was young to be a "DRUG LORD/KING" he was moving to slow on who was setting him up. I figured that out in the middle of the book. I liked his character and was surprised that he was killed off. I look forward to reading the sequel to this book.

This book is a great read! Enjoyable to the end. Author David Givens is a clever weaver of ambition, deceit, and betrayal.The story is masterfully told, and the characters are complete and well rounded. Mr. Givens leaves you in suspense and keeps you guessing, constantly wondering what will heppen next. No spoilers here. You MUST read it for yourself! Kudos to you, David Givens... job well done!

Darrell aka Sandman is the kingpin of the streets. He has all that he wants except love in his life. With a backstabbing no good babymama name KeKe that he no longer cares for always on his back to get back together and the streets heating up he needs something to take his mine of things. That's when he meets Sherrice in a strip club and they connect instantly. Darrell thinks that he has found the love of life but little does he know somebody around him is out to get him. And the fairy tale life
