I was so excited when I saw that Patricia Bradley was coming out with a new series. I loved her Logan Point series, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the first book in her Memphis Cold Case series, Justice Delayed. Justice Delayed promised the same twists, turns, suspense, mystery, intrigue, and hint of romance that was present in the Logan Point books. The back cover says:
"It's been eighteen years since TV crime reporter Andi Hollister's sister was murdered. The confessed killer is behind bars, and the execution date is looming. But when a letter surfaces stating that the condemned killer didn't actually do it, Detective Will Kincaide of the Memphis Cold Case Unit will stop at nothing to help Andi get to the bottom of it. After all, this case is personal: the person who confessed to the crime is Will's cousin. They have less than a week to find the real killer before the wrong person is executed. But much can be accomplished in that week--including uncovering police corruption, running for your life, and falling in love.
With the perfect mixture of intrigue and nail-biting suspense, award-winning author Patricia Bradley invites her readers to crack the case--if they can--alongside the best Memphis has to offer."
I can't say enough good things about Justice Delayed - I was swept in from the first page and just couldn't put it down. I stayed up late reading it and finished it in 24 hours! I know it's a good book when I fly through it like that. Although at first I was a bit confused by the large cast of characters, I quickly got into the story and fell in love with all the characters. I'm looking forward to learning more of their stories in the next book in the series. There were plenty of twists and turns in the plot, and the ending was definitely surprising. I also have to mention that I loved the gorgeous cover, it was so well done and appealing. I love Patricia Bradley's books, and I can't wait for the next installment!
I received a copy of this book from Revell in order to provide an honest review. All opinions are my own.
