Award-winning author Patricia Bradley has thrilled readers with the nonstop action in her suspense novels. Now she turns up the heat again with Justice Betrayed.

Memphis, Tennessee, is celebrating their annual Elvis week, and Detective Rachel Sloan isn’t sure her day could get any stranger. But when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators—one of whom had also been murdered seventeen years earlier—she wonders if there is some connection between the two unsolved cases.

When yet another person in the photo is murdered, Rachel suddenly has her hands full investigating three cases. Lieutenant Boone Callahan offers his help, but their checkered romantic past threatens to get in the way. Can they solve the cases before the murderer makes Rachel victim number four?

What is one thing you’ve learned the hard way so that others don’t have to?

Just one thing? Not sure I can narrow it to one, but if I have to, it would be I wish I’d attended a writers’ conference sooner. That would have fixed a lot of my problems.

It was at my first conference that I first heard the term head-hopping and learned what the term POV meant. Point of View—writing from one person’s perspective. No more switching from the hero’s POV to show what the waiter (or some other secondary character) was thinking.

I didn’t know these terms because I was so isolated, living in a small town with no other writers around. This was before the internet made it easy to connect with other writers. For years, I wrote in a vacuum and kept making the same mistakes all beginning writers make. At the conference, I connected with other writers and joined a critique group, and gradually I learned what those mistakes were. I can trace my growth as a writer back to that first conference and then to the other conferences I attended.
