Novels about betrayal

I'm looking for novels that center around the theme of betrayal.

Specifically, are there any novels which feature someone who sells out friends/cohorts of theirs, gains lots of success after betraying them, and ends up coming crashing down?

    This thread is a flaming train wreck about to explode that is careening out of control toward another flaming train wreck, which is also about to explode.

    maybe it was you that was the problem and they never crash down because they escaped your negative influence?

        He’s saying maybe you are in the wrong or unfairly biased because you are too close to the situation to judge clearly

    There are hundreds, most of the modern ones are written by women, a simple Google search will yield you plenty of results. Due to the fact most of them are written by women most of the posters here will not have read them. Monte Cristo is an excellent choice although it is kind of hard to make the case Dantes betrays his cohorts when they betrayed him and he ends up getting revenge and becoming successful after being wrongfully incarcerated. Judas dies twice and is probably the best known betrayer in the history of literature.

    >maybe Berserk
    If you are into manga, but it won't ever end. And Kite Runner, this one is pretty fricked up.

    I'm sure I have a better answer, but it's not springing to mind. Betrayal is sort of the major theme of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage.
    Rather than being spectacularly betrayed, though, he's more abruptly and inexplicably cast out from a community of people he really trusted
    And rather than their gaining immense success that comes dramatically crashing down, it more delays the inevitable for a few years
    I doubt it's exactly what you're looking for, betrayal might even be too strong a word. But it connected very much to my personal experience of violation of trust. Particularly of being bewildered at a sudden change of favors and wondering for years what it was really about.
