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.

"The final book in the Defenders of Justice series comes to a climactic end with bombs exploding, kidnappings, hit men and bad guys who will stop at nothing to make sure their empire stays intact. . . . Nancy Mehl is a talented author who knows what fans of her books expect, and she never disappoints. Readers won't be able to anticipate Blind Betrayal's twists and turns!"

Nancy Mehl wraps up her Defenders of Justice series with an action-packed thriller. The explosive opening was only a precursor to the danger and suspense lurking on practically every page. Mehl kept me on my toes paying attention to the many characters, dissecting their words and non-verbal nuances for clues to the resolution. As a nurse, I did take exception to some of the hospital scenes, finding them rather unrealistic but I'm a a bit picky for those types of details. Overall, though, this is a captivating novel that will keep you eagerly turning pages and likely surprise you with its ultimate resolution.
