Review: Justice Betrayed (Memphis Cold Case #3) By Patricia Bradley

About the Book

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?

About the Author

Meet Patricia Bradley. I had the opportunity to interview Pat and talk about her new book, the Memphis Cold Case series and her life as an author. We did have a weird issue with YouTube Live when we were recording it so I’m in the corner the entire interview. But I figure that’s okay, better to see Pat. (Next time I’m going to use Zoom!)  Enjoy!


My 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!)

New Book Watch: The House at Saltwater Point (A Lavender Tides Novel) by Colleen Coble

The dangerous beauty of Lavender Tides is harboring secrets that reach around the world.

Ellie Blackmore is making a name for herself as a house flipper. But when her sister Mackenzie disappears, Ellie can’t focus on anything but uncovering what happened. Her only clue is the bloodstain on the deck of Mackenzie’s boat. Ellie knows her sister isn’t on the best of terms with her ex-husband, Jason, but he wouldn’t kill her—would he?

Coast Guard intelligence officer Grayson Bradshaw believes Mackenzie faked her own death after stealing a seized cocaine shipment. The problem is convincing Ellie, who seems to view him as the true enemy.

Both Ellie and Grayson want truth, but truth—and family—is often more complex than it first appears. From international terrorism to the peaceful lavender fields of Puget Sound, The House at Saltwater Point is a thrilling race to uncover the truth before it’s too late.
