Book Review: Justice Delayed

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 Reflections:

If you love mystery and suspense, are able to follow a complex plot and a multitude of characters this is the story for you!

Characters with authentic issues, strong writing, and enjoyable twists are just a few of the things I adored about this book. The plot is well thought out with future editions to be explored. 

The subject matter is complex and the cast of characters plentiful, add that to a duel-timeline and wow this story really packs a punch!

I found this read a little heavy at times making this book a little tricky to maneuver. I did, however, find that I enjoyed Bradley's first book in the "A Memphis Cold Case" series. At first, I tried extremely hard to keep everyone straight..then I gave up and just started reading for the pure enjoyment of it. 

I think my favorite character was by far Andi So no nonsense and brave, if not headstrong mixed with a dash of recklessness. Her journey is astounding, not even a heart defect or a bullet can stop her from fighting. Be warned this book deals with addiction, it may not be appropriate for some audiences. 

I would definitely recommend this book for all the thinkers out there who have more brain space than I. Action packed and full of mystery and suspense you will certainly not find yourself bored with Patricia Bradley's newest series. I am anticipating the next book, perhaps the plot will unravel in my brain just a little more :-)
