Justice Betrayed (Memphis Cold Case #3) Reviews
Not being familiar with Bradley's writing, I was unsure of what to expect when I picked up this book. But given the fact that I love a good mystery as much, if not more, than the next reader, I was excited to give Justice Betrayed a read. I was not disappointed!
The book starts off with a super compelling scene in the prologue which instantly grabbed my attention. And it doesn't stop. The tension and suspense mount until the climax which I thought was really great.
The characters are wel ...more

Nicely done, Ms. Patricia Bradley! I have been a fan of her romantic suspense for a while now and she never disappoints. This third book in Memphis Cold Case series can definitely be read as a stand-alone. There are cameo appearances from the two main characters from book 2 in this book but they only help to further along the plot and you won't get bogged down with questions about who they are and what happened earlier in the series. Anyone who enjoys a well-crafted, grab-the-edge-of-your-seat s ...more

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.
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
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
"I think I asked the wrong person the wrong question."
Memphis homicide detective Rachel Sloan is slightly annoyed when her Friday afternoon departure time is postponed by a vintage Elvis impersonator, Vic Vegas. The man has doggedly pursued the resolution of a cold case involving a fellow Elvis "tribute artist", Harrison Foxx; accumulating years worth of evidence that he is now anxious to share with Rachel. Why? Because her deceased mother died just one day before Foxx's murder. Coincidence? Ra ...more
