When Betrayal ended we saw Helen King, the serial killer carted off to prison after being found guilty of three murders. Betrayal: The Consequences focuses principally on a letter written to the head of the Police Squad who captured her and describes Helen's journey through to where she eventually ends up.
As other reviewers have noted, there was an underlying feeling of sadness and sorrow about this young girl, who never had a chance in life. Abused, used and betrayed, from the age of five, Helen grew up trusting nobody and festering the hatred of those who had betrayed her trust and love.
Despite the vicious and callous nature of her character's murders, Brownlie still manages to squeeze some empathy for the young girl from her readers and this is testament to her superb writing. I enjoyed this book, short though it was, very much.
For anyone who has read Betrayal, I would say that Betrayal: The Consequences is an absolute must read. It gives us, the readers, closure on what was a superbly crafted and wonderful novel. I gave Betrayal five stars for that very reason and I give Betrayal: The Consequences five stars also, because it gave me closure on this story. Excellent job Sharon Brownlie.
