Blind Betrayal ~ Review

Blind Betrayal
Defenders of Justice #3
By Nancy Mehl

It seemed like a routine mission escort a witness from St. Louis to Washington, D.C. But all too soon the assignment goes south. A threat to their office that proves to be much more than a threat soon finds Deputy Marshalls Casey Sloane, Doug Howard, and E.J. Queen hitting the road to protect their witness. What Valerie Bennett knows has someone worried and it seems they will stop at nothing to take her out.

But with no backup and little intel to work on the US Deputy Marshalls are having to rely on instinct and training to stay one step ahead of whoever is after them. And worse there are fears that a mole has somehow penetrated the St. Louis office again.

Feeling that something is off Casey is on high alert and her past associations in the D.C. office have her at odds with E.J. Can Casey compartmentalize her personal and professional selves before she puts everyone in even greater danger? 

With time against them and unknown people searching for them these Marshalls are in a race that they may not all survive.

This is the third book in the Defenders of Justice series and it is no letdown in action and suspense. There are a few unexpected turns that will have the reader rethinking everything that they have learned thus far. If you haven't read the two previous books that is okay as each book is complete in itself. The characters carry over from previous books but different ones are the focus of each book.


About the Book:
After two years at the St. Louis U.S. Marshals Office, Casey Sloane is tasked with escorting a reporter to Washington to testify before a grand jury. The reporter's research on an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared is now even more vital than anticipated.

At first, Casey's assignment seems routine. But a dangerous attack on the Marshals Office puts everyone on high alert. When Casey and two other Marshals--one a man from her past--are forced on the run with the reporter, they'll do whatever it takes to protect their witness and make it out alive.
