Review - Justice Delayed by Patricia Bradley

Revell; 352 pages; $15.99; Amazon
Now available in bookstores from Revell (a division of Baker Publishing Group) is the crime thriller Justice Delayed, book one in the Memphis Cold Case series, by author Patricia Bradley.

I have a habit of picking out new books to read just by their cover arts alone, but this isn't the case with Justice Delayed, as I don't think the cover art is very good for it. To me, it looks very bland. The only reason I signed up to review the novel is because I had read a couple other titles by the author in the past.

The novel centers around Andi Hollister, a crime reporter who's sister was murdered eighteen years ago. After a letter surface with evidences that suggests the murderer might be innocent, Andi teams up with Will Kincaide, a detective at the Memphis Cold Case Unit, to seek out the truth.

With the accused murderer's execution date looming just around the corner, Andi and Will race against time to unravel the mystery and track down the real killer.

Final Thoughts

While I mostly read historical romances, I do occasionally read crime-thriller (James Patterson, etc.),though many of the new titles are a bit silly with made-for-Lifetime plot. The main plot in Justice Delayed involving a convicted killer who may or may not be guilty has been done to death in books and movies. While the premise here is nothing new, the author does her best to make the story interesting by creating likeable characters, lively dialogue, and a few twists and turns that kept me turning the pages.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Justice Delayed. If you can get by the cliched plot, it's actually a pretty decent read.
