Fiction. Romance. Suspense. U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane is tasked with escorting a reporter to testify before a grand jury regarding a missing environmentalist. At first, the assignment seems routine. But when it becomes dangerously clear that there's more to the story than anyone knows, Casey and two other marshalsâ??one a man from her pastâ??will have to do whatever it takes to su
We are with the US Marshall, then with help for the FBI and local police, somehow, we are moving a witness to DC, but in reality, we are trying to save our Country,
This is the third book in this series that the author has offered, and it is just as good as the first two, and each can be read alone, but you may want to peruse the previous books, you wonâ€™t be disappointed.
I am hoping for more in this series, guess I like being frightened, at least in a book!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
The Defenders of Justice series begins with Fatal Frost followed by Dark Deception before ending with Blind Betrayal. In Blind Betrayal, we meet up with U. S.
However, danger increases as miscommunication happens. People are found dead that werenâ€™t near the bomb site and the boss is in surgery fighting for his life. Without secure phones, Casey isnâ€™t sure who to trust and her partner feels they are on their own when a FBI agent and former friend of Caseyâ€™s shows up to help.
Like the other books in the series this one is a riveting and suspense-filled tale with characters who are almost lifelike as the author has crafted them with such personalities and life choices that haunt them. Casey is a good U.S. Marshal and a tough lady, but here she also comes face-to-face with her past and must decide whether to face it or pretend she is fine. Their witness puts them at great risk when she does something that allows others to track or find them without the marshalsâ€™ knowledge.
There is also a budding romance, and one character who truly seemed like an anomaly to me as I couldnâ€™t tell if he was a protagonist or antagonist. A couple of the action scenes really put my heart in my throat as I felt like I was there as a witness. I loved how Nancy showed in the book the impact of people videotaping, posting, texting and how that can help or hinder what is happening with law enforcement and people in action.
I wonder if Nancy will write another installment in this series or if she is starting a new one, either way her books are such a delight to read and time flies quickly!
Enjoy her Defenders of Justice series! I did!

Valerie Bennett is a newspaper reporter who has been questioning the famous environmentalist Martin Avery. Suddenly, Bennett happens upon a dangerous secret. Now her life is in danger.
Casey Sloane and Doug Howard, St. Louis US Marshalls assigned to protect Valerie, quickly have a bigger job on their hands than they expect. When their home office is bombed, they are uncertain about the security of their plans.
EJ Queen from another office joins the team, bringing unpleasant memories from the past to the surface for both himself and Casey.
What a suspenseful ride! Mehl does a great job of making the terror so real that the reader can easily believe he/she is living (hopefully) through it along with the protagonists.
I loved the way that Mehl brings to question whether duty should come before family in a disaster. I liked her conclusion, although I suspect some might differ.
This is a great thrill ride that lovers of Christian romantic suspense will not want to miss. Although Nancy Mehlâ€™s Blind Betrayal is Book Three in her Defenders of Justice series, it also works great as a stand-alone, so no disappointing cliffhangers that make you wait for another year.
I gratefully received a complimentary copy of this ebook from the publisher and NetGalley. No positive review was required and the opinions herein are solely my own.
Casey is a fierce character who is determined to protect a witness that has been slated to testify. Her partner E.J. is well trained and has a keen sense of reading people. The action starts when a bomb explodes in the marshals office. The goal is to get the witness to a safe place, but obstacles get in the way. I was starting to mistrust the witness Valerie when she seems to help the bad guys find her. It's a race against the clock in this explosive and powerful cat and mouse game. Can Casey and E.J. keep Valerie alive to testify? Who is really behind all the danger that puts Casey and E.J. in danger? I love the complexity of the story and how the author puts the pieces together in an intense way that keeps you guessing till the end. The ending is masterfully written with surprises that lead to a closure that will make you cheer.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Bethany House Publishers. The review is my own opinion.

My rating is 4 out of 5 stars.
Casey Sloane has been in St. Louis as a federal marshal for two years. Her new assignment is to escort a reporter to Washington, D.C. to testify to information
E.J. Queen is sent to St. Louis to help in the transportation of a reporter to the D.C. office. He used to work with Casey before she left suddenly for St. Louis. He had romantic feelings for her but kept them to himself as she was dating his best friend. Her sudden departure without explanation rankled. Now, he must work with her, and they both would rather not be near each other. Their attempts to keep their witness safe will have to crank up to their top performance ever as she is under attack. They will have to use all of their skills and work together if they intend to get her to D.C. alive.
This third and final book in this series is filled with plenty of action and suspense. The pages quickly turned as I delved into the story, waiting anxiously to see what happened next. The tension between E.J. and Casey was palpable and believable. The chase scenes were edge-of-your-seat action and there even was a bit of romance. Nancyâ€™s stories always have a faith element, and I like that she thanks God for giving her the talent to write at the end of the book.
I received this book from Bethany House Publisherâ€™s in exchange for my honest review.
This was an intricate tale. There wasn't just one storyline going and I really liked all the players. The way the characters each apprroached the problems was realistic and you could tell the author did her research. I had an emotional roller coaster of emotions through the book. Their was action, betrayal, love, suspense and more.
It was a 5/5 for me. I truly loved it.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.
