DETROIT - July 27, 2020 - PRLog -- Betrayal High, is the latest novel in the Zachary Blake Legal Thriller series by Mark M. Bello. In the story, an affluent Detroit area suburb becomes the home of the latest tragic school shooting as one young teen is pushed over the edge from relentless bullying. With easy access to the weapons in his father's gun cabinet, Kevin decides it is time for the bullying to end. In the aftermath of the violence, the community is left with more questions than answers as trial lawyer Zachary Blake seeks justice for the victims, including his own son. Attorney, Social Justice Advocate and Award-Winning Author, Mark M. Bello takes readers deep inside the story behind the story of a school shooting, posing tough questions for consideration about bullying, gun control and the legal system.

The Zachary Blake Legal Thriller series is based on contemporary, real-life issues, and the inspiration behind Betrayal High comes from an all-too-common occurrence. "My niece and nephew live in the Parkland School District and I have an apartment in nearby Delray Beach. I was in Florida when Parkland happened. While the book is not based on the Parkland incident, the shooting hit too close to home and I began to consider these cases. What are the root causes? How does a kid get these high-octane weapons? Where was security? How does a community cope? How would the legal system respond? I began to research the issue and the result is Betrayal High."

Early reviews applaud Betrayal High for its gripping plot, authentic characters, and subject matter at the forefront of society today. Reader Views says Betrayal High sends, "a candid, and brutally honest message…there are no winners in this scenario, but a series of devastating circumstances leading many to their breaking points."

Betrayal High (ISBN 9781734548914, Bonkers Publishing 2020) is scheduled for release on August 1, 2020 and available for pre-order on Amazon.Com.
