Burnt-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 a daughter raped by a policeman, and life in high office soon becomes much more harrowing than Úrsula bargained for. 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 ago reared its head again? 
As Úrsula is drawn into the dirty world of politics, and faces 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 that little bit too close to reality…
