JUSTICE DELIVERED by Patricia Bradley, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"None of us deserve forgiveness . . . if you don't forgive . . . it will eat you alive."
Years. It had taken "Carly Smith" years to get up enough nerve to re-enter the world that she had been forced to leave behind at the tender age of seventeen. Initiating contact with her older sister, Lia Morgan Raines, felt finally felt right, but once again years have passed since Lia's suspicious death on the night of their reunion. The woman's demise had been classified as a cold case and no one but Carly holds the kind of information that might help law enforcement re-open the investigation.

After escaping eight years of forced prostitution, Carly is certain that the names and faces that she recalls have changed, but risking a trip back to Memphis where it all began is one that she is determined to make. She trusts no one; not her cop brother-in-law, not her once-boyfriend Logan, not anyone associated with the house party that had connected her with an experienced trafficker. Eventually, after her re-appearance sets off a shock wave of violent events, Carly decides that she has to trust someone. Who can help her ensure that justice is finally delivered?

With its myriad of twists and turns, this book was difficult to put down; every chapter raised more questions than it answered and every character had multiple roadblocks to overcome. Ultimately, it was forgiveness that untangled the details of this well plotted case, showcasing Patricia Bradley's skillful ability to write stories that count.

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.
