Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley

Justice Betrayed book cover

When Detective Rachel Sloan receives a strange visit from an Elvis Impersonator with a photo of her murdered mother and suspicions about her death, she decides to open the cold case—only to have her only witness murdered before she can even get a head start. Determined more than ever to get to the bottom of these events, she navigates Elvis week in Memphis, questioning anyone connected with the case.  She is tasked with working with her old flame Lieutenant Boone Callahan.  But Rachel is afraid that Boone will not let her get close to the case with her emotional ties and begins to withhold secrets from her coworkers, causing the enemy to be able to close in on Rachel herself.

If you like suspense novels, this book is for you!  I like the action in the novel but also appreciate how the author slows down the timeline to develop the characters and their relationships.  It allows me, as the reader, to better understand the actions and events of the story.  The author also gives the reader a peek into the mind of the villain, contributing a suspenseful plot.  Additionally, I liked that there was a special needs character in the book.  This novel has mystery, unpredictable events, and sprinkles of romance and spirituality.  A joy to read and recommended to lovers of contemporary fiction!

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
