Jack has always been a very happy little boy.

 

But when he starts kindergarten, he discovers he is different than the
others. For the very first time, he is bullied—Happy Jack suddenly
becomes Sad Jack.

What should Jack do? Should he tell an adult? His parents? Would his
teacher or principal understand? What can they do to help?

As parents, we want certain things for our kids. Mainly, we want them to be
happy. Can today’s kids celebrate their differences, or are they
doomed to fight over them like generations before?

Jack’s school community learns an important lesson as attorney/author
Mark M. Bello presents Jack’s compelling story in rhyme, beautifully
and dramatically illustrated by Melinda Falgoust:

“People are different in color, shape, size.

Ears, noses, mouths, and different shaped eyes.

Different races, and genders—more, too.

Christian or Buddhist, or Muslim or Jew.

But there’s one thing in common we all have in this place.

We are all valued members of this human race.”

 

Happy Jack Sad Jack: A Bullying Story is a must read for all children and
one your child will never forget.

Conservative talk-show host Mia Folger is in therapy with Dr. Harold
Rothenberg. Mia and her husband, progressive Congressman Bradley Crawford,
are not getting along these days, personally or politically.

When Crawford is found brutally dismembered and murdered, the evidence
points to Mia as his killer. While the prosecutor pushes for a murder
indictment, Dr. Rothenberg, convinced of his patient’s innocence,
turns to an old friend—high profile attorney Zachary Blake,
Detroit’s self-proclaimed ‘King of Justice.’

Blake will do anything for Rothenberg, the man who successfully treated his
kids in their battle with a predator priest. Zack takes Mia’s case,
but has his work cut out for him because Mia has been hospitalized, shocked
into a catatonic state at the discovery of her husband’s mutilated
body, unable to assist in her own defense.

Sensing he must prove Mia’s innocence to avoid an eventual life
sentence, Zack enlists the aid of his crack investigator, Micah Love, and
Micah’s cyber-specialist, Reed Spencer to dissect and poke holes in
the case. But, for this case, Micah in convinced that Zack needs
more—he recommends beautiful, sharp, brash, foul-mouthed,
cocky-confident New York based jury consultant extraordinaire Shari Belitz
and her team of mock trial/focus group gurus.

Shari is the best of the best. Her assignment in the Folger case? Flyspeck
the evidence and unleash her arsenal of psychological techniques and
predictive skills—use focus groups or mock juries to determine what
evidence or circumstances would cause the real jury to declare Mia Folger
innocent of all charges. Zack wants no part of Shari; one cocky
lawyer-Zachary Blake-should be sufficient to prove Mia’s case. Blake
knows what he needs for an acquittal; a brash jury consultant from NYC will
only get in his way. But Micah persists and persuades Zack him to give Shari
and her team a try.

Zack, Micah, Reed, and the irrepressible Ms. Belitz join forces in an
all-out attack on the evidence, while evil characters lurk in the
background, engaged in a sinister plot to assure Mia’s demise.

Expect the unexpected in this whodunit legal crime thriller, the 8th
installment of the Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series, featuring all your
favorite series characters and one brash, exciting newcomer who gives Blake
all he can handle.

What does a kid do when it just won’t stop?

Kevin Burns has had enough. Today, the bullying stops. Today, he has easy
access to his father’s gun cabinet. Today, Kevin exacts his
revenge.

“You think I’m small? Maybe I am, but my gun is huge . . . Size
does matter—the larger the gun, the larger the . . .”

Jake Tracey’s phone buzzes. It’s a text from his brother,
Kenny.

Where are you?

English class.

Stay there. Someone has a gun. Lock the door.

Bloomfield, Michigan, an affluent Detroit area suburb, is home to trial
lawyer Zachary Blake. Other school districts envy Bloomfield, that is, until
Kevin Burns commits shocking, all too familiar, acts of senseless violence.
In the aftermath of the tragedy, everyone wonders ‘why?’.

Zack Blake seeks answers, justice for the victims, including his own
son.

How does a kid get a cache of weapons?

The sellers are politically powerful and cover up their role in the
bloodbath. The 2nd Amendment protects them, doesn’t it? And President
Ronald John, Zack’s old nemesis, is a friend.

Can powerful evildoers be brought to justice? Can Zack expose a dark web
weapons conspiracy and the abuse of absolute political power in court?

How does a broken community heal?

In Betrayal High, a Zachary Blake legal thriller, award-winning
author/attorney Mark M. Bello answers these questions and more in this fifth
installment of what many readers are calling the country’s best
courtroom drama series. Prepare to get Betrayed . . . again.
