Justice Betrayed (Memphis Cold Case #3)

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 ...

    3.5 starsThe book got off to a slow start and honestly I felt that a lot of Shirley’s parts were hard to compute or didn’t add to the overall story at all. Two people were my main suspects, but if we had known what they told about near the end, I wouldn’t have suspected them. I wouldn’t have suspected them if we knew what Rachel knew about them. In a mystery I like to feel like I’m part of the solving solution, so feeling like the inves...

    This was an enjoyable read that kept me guessing with enough clues to leave me uncertain who was behind the murders until the author revealed the true perp. That doesn't happen often! Rich characters, real-life issues, and a need to sit down and talk to each other, but events moved too fast to allow it. Very satisfying mystery with taste of suspense layered over the top. The romance was beautiful!

    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 swee...

    Wow! Elvis impersonators, engaging author voice, cold cases, and murder all add up for an edge-of-your-seat suspense novel that kept me guessing the majority of the time and eager to flip the pages faster and faster to find out whodunit and why. I’ll be reading more of Mrs. Bradley’s books after being blown away by this one. Superb job!

    An Elvis impersonator, or I should say Elvis tribute artist, comes to see Detective Rachel Sloan because he is convinced one of his friends was murdered 17 years ago. Vic's been asking a lot of his own questions lately and he hopes Rachel will take the case because her mother knew the man and she was killed only a couple of days before that. Rachel has always been told her mother was killed in a home burglary but her interest is piqued. However, ...

    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 w...

    I really enjoyed how Patricia created the story so that I was guessing which of 3 women were the murderer throughout. I was guessing until the end. Several murders 17 years apart. Slowly finding clues. Kept me reading.

    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...

    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 co...

    Having read Patricia Bradley's previous Memphis Cold Case books, I was looking forward to Justice Betrayed (#3 in the series). Click titles for my reviews of previous titles: Justice Delayed and Justice Buried.The story evolves around memory seeking and past glory loving folks and Elvis Remembrance Events in Memphis. A cold case, also involving Elvis impersonators holds a connection to current murderous plotting and happenings as well as to the m...

    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...

    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...

    3.5 stars I have read all of Patricia Bradley's romantic suspense novel, so I am pretty familiar with how she handles a story. She tends to favor the suspense over the romance, which is my preference too. In her latest and, I believe, final installment in her Memphis Cold Case series, Justice Betrayed, she does exactly that. I had a good time following the mystery and wanting to know who killed Rachel's mom and some Elvis tribute artists. The dis...

    "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 ...

    I enjoyed this police procedure mystery taking place in Memphis. It contains a good combination of a current homicide investigation and an unsolved homicide from years ago. The novel also has a good balance of character development and plot movement.The two people investigating the murder, Rachel and Boone, had previously dated but she had broken off the relationship. She is convinced a romance would not work, especially since they work in the sa...

    Justice Betrayed was a terrific read. Our heroine Rachel Sloan is assigned to homicide with Lt. Boone Callahan as her new supervisor (also someone that still sits her heart aflutter). I know, an old fashion term but it seems to fit. Its Elvis Week in Memphis and people from all over the world are there. Rachel's mother was killed 17 yrs previously during a burglary gone wrong (according to the police). Then an Elvis impersonator tells Rachel her ...

    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 exhilarat...

    "Maybe she didn't have peace because she wouldn't let God in." (p 141)Breath-snatching good! The way the author weaves past and present together into a frenzy of a cold case suddenly turned hot is mind blowing! I was on tenterhooks the whole read. And I love the way the case is set out -- very police procedural so you feel like you're right there working every clue with meticulous detail right along with Rachel and Boone. And oh, those twists and...

    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...

    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 kil...

    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...

    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.

    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 ...
