From the Back Cover
"Pat Bradley's Justice Buried takes readers on a wild ride with twists and turns. If you love a gripping romantic suspense, this is one not to miss."--Robin Caroll, bestselling author of the Bayou series and the Evil series
In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she's ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she's out of her league--and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he's the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.
Crackling with romantic tension and laced with intrigue, this suspenseful story from award-winning author Patricia Bradley will keep you guessing--and looking over your shoulder.

Kelsey Allen is slowly building her security consultancy business. Her recent employment has involved posing as the Phantom Hawk, sneaking into buildings and showing the owners the gaps in their security systems. But when she is spotted one night and shot at, Kelsey knows she had a lucky escape. However, her next assignment - posing undercover at a museum to uncover a spate of artefact thefts - suddenly leads to a murder investigation, and, when it all becomes tied to the cold case of her father's disappearance, she knows she will need the help of police to solve this mystery. Family friend and old school mate, Detective Brad Hollister is the man for the job, but neither Kelsey nor Brad expect the spark between them, nor just how dangerous this case could get.
I can't overstate how wonderful it is to enjoy a book where the characters are really good at what they do. It makes a book, particularly a mystery-thriller, so much more enjoyable. Both Kelsey and Brad are good at their jobs. Kelsey is an accomplished computer hacker (though she keeps on the right side of the law), fearless when facing a four-storey climb, and an antique conservator, as well as being intelligent and independent. That doesn't mean she acts stupidly or impulsively, though, as she faces the very real threat to her and others' lives. Brad, too, is clever and good at his job as police detective, now working on the cold case investigation team. Further, the bad guys are also clever, not relying on Brad and Kelsey to make mistakes to keep the tension high and the action rolling.
I really enjoyed the first book in this Memphis Cold Case series, Justice Delayed, and, dare I say it, Justice Buried was even better. Justice Buried has a wonderful mix of clever crime-fighting suspense, and romance. Strong character and a fast-paced plot make this a really enjoyable book. I look forward to reading the third book in the series.

JUSTICE DELAYED - Andi Hollister, TV crime reporter, is always looking for a story. Unfortunately, she has a knack for getting herself into dangerous situations. Andi’s brother, Detective Brad Hollister, and his best friend, Detective Will Kincaide, are constantly after Andi for taking unnecessary risks. Even so, if there’s a riveting story to flesh out, Andi will do whatever it takes to get the exclusive. However, she never thought she would see the day when she would help Will collect evidence to set her sister’s murderer free. She likes Will, even more than she lets on, but doesn’t think he sees her as anything more than Brad’s kid sister.
Detective Will Kincaide has been life-long friends with Andi and Brad Hollister, and is cousin to Jimmy Shelton. Jimmy is awaiting execution for the murder of Stephanie Hollister. Will never believed his cousin was guilty, but since he confessed, there was nothing he could do, until now. New evidence has come to light, and he needs Andi and Brad’s help to find the truth. Unfortunately, his attraction to Andi grows stronger the more they work together.
Once again, Ms. Bradley has penned a riveting story that will captivate readers. The way she weaves the past with the present is seamless and easy to follow. The suspect pool for Stephanie’s murder is deep, so the story keeps you guessing. All the main characters are great. Andi is a gutsy woman trying to forge her own path. Brad is the protective brother trying to keep her safe. And Will is trying to navigate his feelings for Andi without ruining his friendship with Brad. The banter between the three is witty and very entertaining.
JUSTICE BURIED – Kelsey Allen is a security consultant, trying to make a name for herself. She offers to break into prospective clients’ businesses in order to expose their vulnerabilities. Since what she does borders on illegal, few people know what Kelsey does, and the media has dubbed her, The Phantom Hawk. Unfortunately, Kelsey gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, and because of that, one of two things is going to happen. One-she’s going to be the prime suspect in a murder case. Or two – the murderer is going to believe she can identify him. Detective Brad Hollister is investigating two murders that coincide with the antics of The Phantom Hawk. When he finds out that person is Kelsey Allen, he is more than irritated. Of course, his irritation with Kelsey isn’t solely work related. His attraction for her also frustrates him. When it’s obvious someone is after Kelsey, Brad does what he can to keep her safe, but he wonders whether that will be enough.
Like JUSTICE DELAYED, Ms. Bradley’s character development in JUSTICE BURIED is spot on. She creates believable, loveable characters that you can’t help but like. I enjoy books with strong female characters, and Andi Hollister and Kelsey Allen definitely fit the bill. The storyline in each of these books is quite unique. Diamond smugglers and security hackers (because that’s what she really is) adds a fresh composition to Ms. Bradley’s works. I look forward to getting the next installment in The Memphis Cold Case series.
JUSTICE BURIED provided for review purposes.
I found the characters niched into their gender and professions. It was quite fitting that a 2017s 20 to 30 year old female, Kelsey the lead female, would be a strong climber. While this is not quite the norm, it is a growing trend among the young adults of today. Also, that she was a computer hacker par excellence. These two elements are major components in the story.
Detective Brad Hollister has just been transferred to the Cold Case Division which makes his former girlfriend come trotting back into his life. She really doesn't want a "cop" for a husband but perhaps considers a cold case investigator a safer choice. Soon it comes to her attention as well as the readers of Justice Buried that safe is not necessarily a word to use in relation to the cold case division's work.
A fairly light read that gave enough suspense, romance, drama to suit this reader.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher to facilitate a review of my personal opinion which is freely given.
