Betray the Lie

(Book 11 in the Sydney Rye Mystery series)
A Novella by


Justice with a vengeance

How do you find peace in a world rife with injustice? A world that is so wrong?

Sydney Rye is in Miami, surrounded by friends and co-conspirators who share her values and goals. People who believe in her. For the first time since her brother’s murder, Sydney Rye is finding a way to live in peace…but also isn’t helping anyone in need.

Unfortunately, this peace can’t last—Sydney is in the eye of a storm. With the effects of Datura under control, she no longer hears thunder, sees lightning, or feels the cold sting of hard rain. But danger rages all around her, circling closer every moment.

Declan Doyle spent the last five years hunting Sydney Rye. He’s faced humiliation and grave injury at her hands, but nothing can stop him now. He has a warrant, she’s on US territory, and this time he’s locking her up for good. They can take his badge and career, but he’ll get Sydney Rye this time.

Dan Burke is obsessive, brilliant, and a founding member of Joyful Justice. Safely ensconced on the isolated island headquarters of his organization, Dan does what he wants, when he wants. He’s the man in charge. But when the island stronghold falls under attack, and his closest allies betray him, he’s forced to defend the network they’ve built at any cost.

Lenox Gold is dangerous, gorgeous, and devoted to justice. As a gigolo and pimp, he runs his business at the highest standards of ethics—everyone is a consenting adult getting what they need out of the transaction. With the help of Joyful Justice, Lenox is determined to bring these ideals to the entirety of his industry. But when the woman who showed Lenox how to transform his life turning tricks on the beach into a profitable international business begins breaking the rules, Lenox must choose between betrayal of a trusted friend and the ideals he spent his life defending.

What none of them see coming is a brewing discontent. Masses once thought to be harmless—splinters of humanity the internet fostered into groups of organized zealots—are forming their own networks…preparing to take revenge.

The status quo is cracking.

The war is brewing.

Continue the adventure on September 20th.
