Actress Maria Bello, last seen in the Sony Pictures Classics drama Third Person, narrates her first audiobook with the November 25, 2014 release of Betrayed.
The upcoming novel, penned by Lisa Scottoline, centers on Judy Carrier, an attorney employed at the all-women Philadelphia law firm Rosato & Associates. Carrier investigates the seemingly natural death of Iris, an undocumented worker and friend of Carrier’s aunt. While looking into the woman’s death, Carrier uncovers a dangerous underground world as well as discovers secrets about her own family.
Of Bello, the Edgar Award winning scribe says the following: “she has a genius for portraying smart and strong, yet vulnerable, heroines like the ones I write. She sounds incredibly wonderful in the audiobook of Betrayed, and she understands these characters as women, professionals, and even mothers and daughters. I couldn’t be more honored to have her record the audiobook of this novel, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how great it turned out!”
Bello also starred in A History of Violence, The Cooler, Coyote Ugly, Prisoners, and one of my personal Johnny Depp outings – the overlooked thriller Secret Window.
Scottoline’s prolific work includes 21 novels with a total of 25 million copies of her books in print.
