Don’t ever touch drugs – especially when love (or what you think is love) is involved. A single lie can destroy a young, innocent, well-groomed but gullible heart.

Cupid comes to wreak havoc on the lives of an eclectic group of people in “Betrayal: The Dark Side of Love” (published by Abbott Press), the suspenseful new novel by Rachid Amokrane.

Patrick, a Manhattan businessman who found and lost the love of his life, is Cupid’s latest victim in the pages of “Betrayal.” While visiting Paris, he encounters the capricious winged boy in extraordinary circumstances and gives him a piece of his mind.

Carmen, an exotic Bronx beauty, dreams of romance but Cupid’s bow and arrow introduces her to Alain, a ruthless Parisian drug addict. She discovers hell on Earth while Gordon, her loving brother, rushes to her help but ends up behind bars. Jean Claude, an eccentric Geneva art dealer, meets a French beauty and believes heaven is his – but instead, he finds murder.

Events come to a head at a fashionable Parisian party, where a surprise guest is about to tell Patrick a secret. Cupid sits nearby and is all ears. The secret is so shocking Patrick freezes with horror while a startled, awestruck Cupid loses his wry grin and slips away.

Amokrane is confident that his book will resonate with modern readers. When asked how “Betrayal” is relevant in today’s society, he is quick to respond. “Drugs can destroy your life,” he explains. “Don’t ever touch drugs – especially when love (or what you think is love) is involved. A single lie can destroy a young, innocent, well-groomed but gullible heart.”
