Justice Betrayed (Memphis Cold Case #3) Reviews
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 ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this thrilling conclusion to Patricia Bradley's Memphis Cold Case series. I've enjoyed all the books in this series, but I think this might be the best yet.
Rachel Sloan, the detective in this story, is such a compelling character. She's carried guilt for many years, something to do with her mom's death, and she's tried to keep it buried, but now it's come back and is really bothering her. She's sure that it wasn't an accidental burglary-gone-wrong as it was declared, and a ...more
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 “c ...more
Justice Betrayed is the third book in the Memphis Cold Case series, a collection of stand-alone novels that follow individuals with a gift for finding answers to crimes long left unsolved. Justice Betrayed follows its predecessors as an exciting romantic mystery.
Detective Rachel Sloan joined the police force hoping to one day solve her mother’s cold murder case. When an Elvis impersonator demands to speak with Rachel about another cold case he is sure is tied to her mother’s death, Rachel isn’t ...more
I've really been enjoying this latest series from Patricia Bradley. I think a lot of it is because the cold cases really intrigue me. I enjoyed that TV show that was on for awhile called Cold Case.
This book was a slightly different spin in that we knew for most of the book what the "bad guy" was thinking because his or her (no spoilers!) point of view was fairly prevalent, but at the same time, there were still quite a few twists and turns. It was an interesting spin.
I won't lie, I did get a li ...more
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 sur ...more
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, ...more
The third installment of Bradley's Memphis Cold Case series focuses on a cold case related to a homicide detective's past. Rachel and Boone's attraction is palpable, but their reality of not wanting to be involved as co-workers makes things more interesting. The villain isn't extremely difficult to figure out, but the reasoning behind their actions is complex. Bradley includes the unique character of Erin who seems as if she is a real person and takes great care to portray her respectfully.
