Editorial Reviews

Author of The Shadow Dancer - Margaret Coel
“The Law of Betrayal brings together an intrepid sleuth, prosecutor Alma Bashears, A rich and unique setting in the mountain hollows of Kentucky, a cast of quirky characters that kept me off balance, and a twenty-year-old mystery that demands to be solved. All of which add up to a tale that kept me guessing until the very end.”
Author of A Cruel Deceit - Loren Haney
“A fascinating look at Appalachia and the impact he past can have on the present.”
Author of Dying to Get Her Man - Judy Fitzwater
“In the Law of Betrayal, Tess Collins writes about the hills of Kentucky as only a native can, weaving folklore, generational ties, and the ever present connection to the land, into an exciting tale of justice.”

Meet the Author

Tess Collins is a coal miner’s granddaughter with Cherokee ancestry on her mother’s side and a legend of being descended from a mountain clan known as the Seven Big Sisters on her father’s. Raised in the southeastern Kentucky town of Middlesboro, she spent her early years listening to mountain tales of haunted hollows, ghosts, moonshiners and unsolved murders. No doubt they influenced her writing. She is the author of THE LAW OF REVENGE, THE LAW OF THE DEAD, and THE LAW OF BETRAYAL, thrillers set in Appalachia and HELEN OF TROY. Her non-fiction book HOW THEATER MANAGERS MANAGE is published by Rowman and Littlefield’s Scarecrow Press. Miss Collins received a B.A. from the University of Kentucky and a Ph.D. from The Union Institute. Her web page can be accessed at www.tesscollins.com/

    Good read

    I enjoyed this book. However there were many gramatical & spelling errors. If you can get past that, it's got a good storyline that will keep you reading.

    finished the trilogy

    These were good enough to finish without much trouble but I got tired of the high school type attitudes every character had except Mamaw.

    Every argument in the book reminded me of my high school aged granddaughter arguing with her boyfriend and it got tiresome.
