Overview

Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley

It's Elvis Week in Memphis, and homicide Detective Rachel Sloan isn't sure her day could get any stranger when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas asks to see her. But when he produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators—one of whom had also been murdered soon after the photo was taken—she's forced to reevaluate. Is there some connection between the two unsolved cases? And could the recent break-in at Vic's home be tied to his obsession with finding his friend's killer?

When yet another person in the photo is murdered, Rachel suddenly has her hands full investigating three cases. Lieutenant Boone Callahan offers his help, but their checkered romantic past threatens to get in the way. Can they solve the cases before the murderer makes Rachel victim number four?

It’s Elvis week in Memphis! Rachel, a homicide detective, sure learns a lot about Elvis tribute artists as she takes a cold case about a murder 17 years earlier, which then becomes hot as new murders occur. The book not only has the suspense element, but then has other elements woven in – a young girl abused by her father and what that does to her. Another woman who marries a man not right for her because “Girls seeking love because their fathers were absent. And a father doesn’t have to be missing to be absent.” The author does a marvelous job of giving just enough information to keep me totally guessing the entire novel. I loved it and highly recommend it! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review - all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Justice Betrayed starts off with a powerful punch of action, mystery, and suspense. That prologue sets the wheels in motion for a story that will keep you guessing, make you think you know what's going on, pull you in another direction, and leave you breathless in those climactic scenes. Don't get me wrong. This healthy dose of confusion pushes you to keep reading. In the meantime, the characters are extremely well developed, and the backstory of these characters is doled out as needed, making them interesting and believable. Rachel Sloan is a great main character. I love that she is determined to go her own way and be a cop instead of a lawyer, but she never stops thinking of others. Her relationship with Erin, who is a special needs adult and sister of Rachel's long-time friend, Terri, is incredibly well written and touching. The other main character, Boone Callahan, is no slouch either. I really like that the author gave Rachel and Boone a little bit of dating history, rather than have them meet for the first time in this story. With Boone as Rachel's boss in Homicide, dating is now out of the question, but does that stop their two hearts from fluttering? Read this light romance/heavy suspense story to find out for yourself. As an added bonus, Elvis, or I should say an Elvis tribute artist, is alive and well in Justice Betrayed. Or is he? It's all a big mystery, and it's up to Boone and Rachel to solve a cold case, a hot case, and a semi-warm case before the killer does it again. Easy, right? Not if the killer is a messed-up individual who hears voices and decides you are getting too close and need to be eliminated. Lots of action going on, but the plot is also thick with interesting relationships between family, friends, and some weird suspects. A few serious topics are touched upon, such as past family abuse, misplaced guilt, and not keeping those lines of communication open, but these issues show the importance of having true friends, speaking up for yourself, being honest with loved ones, and pursuing justice the right way. I readily admit that I was wrong in my assumption of the killer's identity. Justice Betrayed is a well-crafted puzzle, and I enjoyed the challenge!

I prefer it when authors keep the “bad guy” a mystery, even in a suspense, so I was a little disappointed to “meet” the bad guy in the prologue. Until . . . I discovered I didn’t have a clue who the person actually was in the present! I love being kept guessing and Pat provided enough possibilities to keep me on my toes. She also had some great secondary characters, including the heroine’s polar opposite grandmothers, as well as, a sweet, mentally challenged young woman whose adoration of Elvis inadvertently entangles her in the mystery, which takes place during Elvis week in Memphis and begins with the death of a tribute artist. I really enjoyed this book.

This story is quite the page turner. The suspense keeps building from one page to the next and never stops. Family drama and a seventeen year old unsolved murder collide to make Rachel’s investigation of this cold case take a very personal turn. As she and Boone dive deeper into the hidden secrets of this case, the one person she does not want to depend on becomes one of the only people she can trust. Patricia Bradley’s book is an excellent example of what a mystery/suspense story should be. The characters have depth and pull you into the emotional side of their story. Although I was reading quickly to find the answer to the mystery, I was sorry to see this book come to an end. This is a clean story with no bad language or embarrassing scenes. It was a pleasure to read such a well-written Christian fiction novel. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Memphis Cold Case #3 focuses on the death of an Elvis impersonator, Vic Vegas, who came to see homicide detective Rachel Sloan with a picture of her mother with 4 Elvis impersonators one of whom was murdered right after her mother was murdered. Are the three deaths connected? It's the middle of Elvis week in Memphis and Rachel and her superior Boone Callahan race to find the connection between present day murder and 2 cold cases. With an exhilarating speed, Bradley forges through the ups and downs and twists and turns of this complex suspense drama. Both Rachel and Brad are dealing with past histories that have affected their thinking and feelings at present; yet, at the same time, they are great partners as they share the workload and bounce ideas off one another. I loved seeing the suspense at the forefront and their developing feelings playing second role. I still would like to see Bradley develop more depth in her spiritual content rather than just a mention here or there, but I am really looking forward to book 4 in this series to see where the focus goes next.

Great book in the series. I love the suspense. I love Boone and Rachel. This story has a lot of twists and turns. I hope there are many more books in this series. I love the way Patricia Bradley puts a case together. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Do you like a good whodunnit? The whodunnit storyline of Justice Betrayed by author Patricia Bradley is what caught my attention. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I didn’t know what to expect. I’m not an Elvis fan and I’ve never been to Memphis, but I love a good mystery, filled with intrigue and the challenge of solving a cold case. Detective Rachel Sloan is asked in by Vic Vegas, an Elvis tribute artist, to help solve a murder mystery from seventeen years ago that may somehow be related to her own mother’s murder. At first, Rachel’s not too sure about this, after all it’s a cold case and she’s working in the homicide division. But after Vic turns up dead she wonders if there may be something more to the case he wanted her to investigate. It took a few chapters before I got interested in the story. The story started out kind of slow and there were a lot of characters introduced early on and it was hard to keep track of them. But I’m glad that I kept on reading because before long the story picked up pace and I was hooked. I liked the characters, especially the relationship between Rachel and Boone, and enjoyed the mysteries and trying to figure out whodunnit. Patricia did a good job giving the reader a feel for what Memphis may be like and the fascination with Elvis that continues to this day. I appreciated that Justice Betrayed doesn’t contain profanity and immoral sexual situations. There wasn’t a lot of the Christian faith in this book, a Scripture verse and Rachel acknowledging that she had stopped turning to God because her prayers for justice seemed to be unanswered. I would have liked to seen more of the Christian faith woven into some of the characters and storyline. If you like a good mystery, that will keep you guessing to the end, read Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley. I look forward to reading her other books. I would like to thank Revell Publishing and NetGalley for the opportunity to read Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.

Justice Delayed is the first book I’ve read by author Patricia Bradley, and I am so delighted to note that this story was exceptional. I immediately bonded with the heroine, and not only because we share the same first name. Rachel Sloan was flawed and relatable. She’s been searching for overdue answers concerning her mother’s death, while working as a homicide detective. We glimpse a lot of her professional demeanor, but her soft-hearted nature emerges when interacting with those she loves. I especially adored her relationship with Erin, a special needs young woman. Rachel’s life brimmed with complicated associations from her strained relationship with her no nonsense father to her superior in the homicide department, Boone Callahan, whom she dated prior to her transfer to the department. Boone Callahan was protective and consistent. I enjoyed reading as the two main characters worked together untangling the scrambled case. Honestly, at first I thought that this story was going to be predictable, but—woah—I was clearly wrong! The plot had twists and turns and a jaw-dropping conclusion. The romance was a great complement to the suspense factor. The relationship between the two main characters was believable and tender. The pacing of this story was superb and just right for this genre. I truly enjoyed this novel and can’t wait to see what this talented author will come up with next! I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Justice Betrayed takes us to Memphis, Tennessee during a very busy Elvis week. Homicide detective Rachel Sloan is a woman who has been on her own for a while. She is a widow, her mother was murdered when she was just fifteen years old, and her father, who is an important judge, and she does not get along. I really felt she had a lot stacked up against her in life. She is also working with Lt. Boone Callahan whom she dated briefly and still has feelings for and vice versa. What starts out as a visit from an older Elvis impersonator with information about a murder that took place around the time her mother was murdered, pushes Rachel in the bullseye for a person that seems to not have any moral conscience. Besides the viewpoints of Boone and Rachel, we also get inside the killer’s mind. This individual is particularly creepy for reasons I won’t mention due to spoilers and also just due to the fact I never was sure who it was. There were about three to four people I kept thinking might be the guilty one. This was an intense read simply because I was left guessing most of the book. However we do have Rachel’s two grandmothers who give a bit of fun and levity to a story that was rather intense. I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

Justice Betrayed Isn't enjoyable mystery, romantic suspense-phew That was a typing full. I enjoyed this book. It is portrayed like a real life event. The book was at a steady flowing clip. It keeps you going and guessing who is the killer and who is gunning (yes that is a pun) for Rachel. Will Rachel accept the help of Boone? Even after their romantic past? Will they rekindle? Will they catch who it is before it is too late? Who is it that is killing these Elvis impersonators and now after her? Are you going to find out? I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all of the opinions expressed in this review are all my own. if you would like to read more of my Christian book reviews go to christianlybookreviewers.blogspot.com

Nutshell: Homicide Detective Rachel Sloan's mother had been killed when Rachel was a little girl. The death was said to have been from a burglary gone wrong, and the case was closed. A few days after her mother's death, a friend of her mother was murdered, an Elvis impersonator. Case unsolved. Years go by and another friend of her mother, Vic Vegas, yet another Elvis tributarian, shows up at Rachel's office saying he had evidence of her mother's death, her mom's friend's death and that both were murdered. The next day Vic is found killed. Someone is out to stop the truth from coming out. With no information other than a picture Vic gave to Rachel of himself, her mom, the murdered friend and one other person, Rachel is bound and determined to solve this case. Add in the craziness of being Elvis Week, it's time for Rachel to jump back in to the past with the help from Lieutenant Boone Callahan, and find out who is murdering Elvis impersonators and get to the bottom of solving these age old, personal cases before time runs out. What I thought: This is the 2nd book in the Memphis Cold Case series, though it can be read as a stand alone book. Patricia did an excellent job keeping the story going and keeping the reader involved in the book right up until the end. A classic "who dunnit" suspense mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. I enjoyed the creativity of the Elvis focus as that added an extra layer of interest in the story. This book was well thought out, creative and well written. The characters in the first book were very minor in this book, so it can be read as its own novel. Would I recommend it: Absolutely! If you enjoy a good mystery suspense, you will enjoy this book! Patricia is a seasoned author who does a phenomenal job creating and delivering story. Revell Books sent me this complimentary copy to review for them. Opinions expressed are my own.

JUSTICE BETRAYED is the third book in Ms. Bradley's A Memphis Cold Case series but it stands alone. The other books in the series are Justice Buried and Justice Delayed if you want to read them in order. I enjoyed getting to know Rachel and Boone. I absolutely loved Boone, he was a Christian, strong, faithful, caring, and there. Rachel was hurting, very realistic and I loved her family relations (grandparents, dad) even though I think she misread her dad. There are a host of secondary characters that round the story out and keep it interesting and even entertaining. I read a lot of suspense and I know how it works so I figured out who the killer was probably in the first fifty pages. What I didn't know was how they would solve the current murders and the cold cases that were tied together. I was a bit surprised by the generalizations made -- Rachel was surprised by the amount of fifty plus year old women present at the Elvis Presley impersonations and at Elvis week in general - but my mother-in-law (seventy something) goes to Elvis week and is (was) a huge fan of Elvis Presley. I think there are a lot of women older than me who are (were) huge fans so it would be a draw for that generation. She also made comments about grandmothers and texting and in this day and age, I think most do. This had nothing to do with my enjoyment of the book, but I noticed it each time. There is a good faith message, plenty of action, not to mention romantic tension between Boone and Rachel. I greatly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it if you like Romantic Suspense. I was given a copy of JUSTICE BETRAYED free. All opinions are my own.

Patricia Bradley certainly knows how to weave a mystery, and she does it beautifully with Justice Betrayed. This is the 3rd (4th if you count the novella Revenge) in the Memphis Cold Case series. Even when you are introduced to the murderer at the beginning, you don't know who she is until the end. Now that's a great mystery. The characters are well developed and believable. There is just the right amount of action mixed in with the pace of the investigation. Bradley is masterful at tying everything together. Well done. I truly hope there are many more books in this series.

This was an explosive read from start to finish. Tracking the criminal in this book was interesting and Patricia wove the story beautifully. I enjoyed getting know Rachel's backstory after her character was introduced in book 2 of this series and I liked Boone very much. He was a perfect match for her. The Elvis component was an extremely fun element that added a nice layer to the story. I did figure out the criminal about half way through but as I read a TON of mystery/suspense, that wasn't surprising, but my mouth still dropped open when I realized who it had to be, and I still wanted to finish the story and see what happened next and how all the pieces fit together. This is a great series and I will definitely read more by this author. She weaves a great mystery! I was provided this book for review by the publisher and was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

Do you ever watch crime shows on tv? This is one of those in written form! High action, suspense, intrigue, irony, murder, and a little bit of romantic tension make this story a thrilling read from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down! I had never read anything by this author before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It met and exceeded my expectation. Loved the subtle references to scripture. It wasn’t in your face and obnoxious. There was just enough to get the reader thinking. Characters were well crafted as was the plot. There were twists and turns with characters as the story progressed. As people’s stories came out the story blossomed in a way I didn’t expect. I would love to see more about these characters in the future! I will definitely read more by Patricia Bradley. I have a feeling she will quickly become one of my favorite authors. Don’t miss this book! It’s a must read. I received a copy of this book as apart of the publisher’s blogging program. I was under no compulsion to write a review. All opinions stated here are my own.

From the beginning of this book you the reader is drawn into a twisted plot of brokenness and deceit. We know early on who the murderer is, but we also know the brokenness that lead to this way of thinking. It’s quite interesting. Patricia Bradley knows how to write a good romantic suspense. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read by her. The romance and the tense was well done and added to the plot of the story. If you haven’t read anything by Patricia yet I highly recommend you give her a try. A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

This is the third book in the Memphis Cold Case series and the second book I’ve read in the series. Although the stories are slightly connected, the books work fine as standalone novels. One thing that stood out in both books I’ve read by Patricia Bradley were the first chapters…they both started out with a bang and let me know that I was in for a wild and adventurous ride. This story is a murder mystery that involves Elvis impersonators and takes place in Memphis Tennessee. The book is Christian fiction but is still gritty and disturbing, which I strangely enjoy. I liked that this story was light on the romance…it’s there but it’s subtle. There were a lot of characters to keep track of, which became a bit confusing at times and I was able to guess the culprit pretty early on but I still found the story to be a lot of fun. Overall, this was another winner from Patricia Bradley. I now consider her one of my favorite Christian Fiction author. My Rating: 4.5 stars I received this book from the publisher.

Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley is a romantic suspense that occurs during Elvis Week in Memphis! I am a huge Elvis fan so I was thrilled to learn the storyline. The book opens with a chilling scene of a young girl terrified of her father. Rachel is a homicide detective. An Elvis tribute artist brings her a photo and a suspicion of a murder that happened 17 years ago and just days after her mother was murdered. He thinks they might be related. Before she can learn more and get his case file, he is murdered. Her mother’s murder has never been solved and is part of the reason she is a police officer. Boone is Rachel’s Lieutenant. They had dated for six months before she broke it off and joined his team. They still have feelings for each other. Boone is swoon worthy. I loved his character. I was cheering for him throughout the book. The secondary characters of the grandmothers and Erin added a beautiful touch to the story. Everyone wants fun grandmothers like these ladies. The author did a great job of crafting a chilling villain and a plot that kept you guessing until the end. Sexual content – kiss Violence – several deaths, and poison I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review.

Such a great book! I love this type of story where the author allows the reader solve the mystery alongside the protagonist. This one was of the best I've read in quite awhile. Bradley kept me guessing until the very end. There was so much to like about the characters. Rachel Sloan is smart but has a quick wit about her that made the interaction between her and Boone a blast to watch. Boone has the gentle tough guy persona that makes him a great cop and leading man. Although a book three in the series you can definitely read this one without reading the first two. (My guess once you've read this one you'll want to read the other two!) Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Deb’s Dozen: Evil personified. A serial killer only one man suspects. Will justice win? Patricia Bradley’s Justice Betrayed, the third book in her Memphis Cold Case series, is an exciting page turner with lots of surprises. The evil is identified in the prologue and the romantic tension from the first chapter on. Rachel Sloan is approached by Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas just prior to the end of her shift. He insists he has information on a cold case murder that also involves Rachel’s mom, Gabby, who was killed seventeen years before. Rachel’s supervisor in the unit, Lt. Boone Callahan, does not want her involved—he feels she is too close to the case to be effective. Rachel and Boone are both relatable characters who you care about almost from the beginning. Bradley has the knack for creating realistic, likable people for her novels. Both Rachel and Boone have deep baggage from their past—Rachel from the loss of her mom and estrangement from her dad, Boone from his last tour in Afghanistan where he lost one of his team. Both of them feel the losses were somehow their fault. Other intriguing characters are Rachel’s friend and coach, Terri, and her sister with special needs, Erin. Erin has an almost photographic memory and can relate things she’s heard in the voice and mannerisms of the person who said them—a very eerie talent. Rachel’s dad, Lucien, seems a formidable character until they finally talk near the end of the book. The action happens at an even pace with just enough twists and one-way streets to keep you turning pages. I’ve loved Bradley’s books for a while and Justice Betrayed is no exception. Four stars. Patricia Bradley lives in Mississippi. She is the founder of Aiming for Healthy Families, Inc., and a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers. The other two books in the Memphis Cold Case series are Justice Delayed and Justice Buried. You’ll want to get these as well as her Logan Point series. Check her out at PTBradley.com. Revell Books gave me a copy of Justice Betrayed, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.

What a suspenseful and exciting story! I kept changing my mind about whodunit. I was captured from the opening pages as I tried to figure out the connections between people, places, and events. It seemed obvious that certain things fit but others seemed totally disconnected. In the very next chapter, circumstances might have reversed all assumptions from the previous chapter. Someone named Shirley seemed to play a big role in the story, but who was Shirley? She appears first in the prologue and then pops up from time to time but who is she? The detectives are searching high and low but not for Shirley, or at least that name has not come to their attention. The reader can easily see how she fits into the story but the author keeps her identity hidden. At one point or another, almost every character in the story looks like a suspect; well, maybe not the two grandmothers, but they are interesting characters who add a bit of flair to the book. At the end of the book, I realized I had only figured out one aspect of the story correctly and that really had nothing to do with who committed the crimes. That will have to remain my secret because sharing it here might spoil the story for you. I anticipate the next series by Patricia Bradley as this one comes to an end.

I really enjoyed this new romantic suspense by Patricia Bradley, even though I have not read the first two books in the Memphis Cold Case series. This could easily be a standalone book. The story is memorable because the author draws you into the tale of Rachel, an intelligent and strong young woman who lost her mother at an early age and blames herself for her mother’s murder. Her love interest is her boss in the police station, so their interaction is emotionally charged but manages to stay “clean.” It is is engaging because Rachel is so determined to find the truth, and the reader is brought along on her journey there. The fact that there were Elvis impersonators being killed was especially interesting to me because I have visited Memphis and Graceland and know that the city is filed with Elvis wannabes. I loved that the entire book was written without any bad language or steamy bedroom scenes, not even any bleeps. Christian fiction is the best! Fans of Patricia Bradley and romantic suspense will thoroughly enjoy this book. It has a twist at the end that you won’t see coming, so that makes it even better for the diehard mystery fans who try to figure it out before the killer is revealed. I don’t think you’ll be able to figure out this one, even though Ms. Bradley does leave bread crumbs along the way to try to help us along the way. Excellent book with memorable characters and a flowing and satisfying plot and conclusion!
