Justice Delayed by Patricia Bradley - REVEIWED

About the Book:
In one week, the wrong man will be executed for murder.

Let the chase for the real killer begin.

Eighteen years ago, TV crime reporter Andi Hollister's sister was murdered. The convicted killer sits behind bars, his execution date looming. But when a letter surfaces stating that the condemned didn't do the crime, 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 man who confessed to the crime is Will's cousin. Andi and Will must find the real killer before the wrong person is executed. But what can happen in only a week? Uncovering police corruption, running for your life, and, perhaps, falling in love?

My Thoughts:
Do you remember where you were the night Stephanie was murdered?”  (p. 184)
This question becomes the genesis of resurrecting and 18-year-old murder investigation from a the status of cold case to active investigation.  That, in itself, makes for a fascinating story line, but when you add the motivation of the three days until the execution of a possibly innocent man, you have a true thrill ride!  And that’s not all!!  The murderer is hidden in plain sight, and the closer discovery moves in their direction the more desperate the effort becomes to keep the 18-year-old secret buried!  Not everyone survives the effort!
Patricia Bradley’s name on the cover promises a thrill ride for readers who enjoy a great murder/mystery/police detective-type story line.  Justice Delayed has many, many layers to uncover! Truly, I’ve rarely seen so many diverse threads so successfully interwoven.  On top of everything else going on, there is an undercurrent of human trafficking AND romance!  This author fleshes out the story line completely!

Can you tell I enjoyed my time between the pages of this novel?  I did! I did!  It was hard to put it down! I am happy to recommend this novel to readers who enjoy a variety of genres.  This novel will satisfy a broad range of readers!  Dive right in, and enjoy the ride!
