AUTHOR: Patricia Bradley
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.
First, the disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions are my own.
I’ve read several books by Patricia Bradley and have enjoyed each nail-biting tail, so when this one arrived, I knew it would be an entertaining thrill. Ms. Bradley did not let me down. And I could not put the book down. From the opening lines of the prologue, tension held me in its grip as I quickly got to know and care about not only the lead characters, but their supporting case, as well.
The ticking clock echoed loud and clear throughout this story, as Andi and Will dug into carelessness and cover-ups, all while Andie was being hunted. Twists and false leads kept me guessing until the end—not easy to do.
If you enjoy fast-paced, thrilling stories with some sweet romance, Justice Delayed is a great choice. Highly recommended, it earns five stars.
