Justice Delivered, by Patricia Bradley, is the latest in her Memphis Cold Case series. This book can be read as a stand-alone novel. It opens with action that grabs the attention and doesn't let up until the end of the book. Several sub-plots and some twists and turns keep the reader guessing until the very end. I really enjoyed this one and read it in just a few sittings. This novel is a clean-read and, while it doesn't share a gospel message, it does have glimpses of it and endorses the need to forgive others.
I liked Carly's story, I feel the need for attention to the sex-trafficking issue is great. This was well-written and engaging.
From the back cover:
Carly Smith came by her trust issues honestly. A victim of sex trafficking, she's been at the mercy of merciless men, ignored by law enforcement officers who should have helped her, and seemingly rejected by her family. She can't even trust herself to do the right thing. Though she escaped her captors and is working hard on building a new life, the past continues to haunt her when she discovers that the man she couldn't bring herself to report to police for fear of reliving her captivity is still out there, luring vulnerable girls under the guise of being a modeling agent.
When her own niece is kidnapped, Carly must overcome her fears and come forward with the information she has before it's too late. When that proves to be not enough, she'll have to go after the perpetrators herself.
