Life is quiet in the small South Carolina town of Winslow, situated five miles from the Georgia border. The sheriff's office is located in a mall because there is not much crime in the peaceful town that is until Richard Welch arrives on the run from DEA officials and kills state trooper Dan Colby. The residents are horrified that such a crime could happen in their area and eagerly await the trial to see justice done.

On the day when Richard Welch is to have his day in court, he escapes and a search of the area yields no sign of the former prisoner. Cassie O'Connor, a television reporter based in Columbia, sees this story as a way into the big leagues but her investigation seems blocked at every turn. She doesn't know that the killer is tied to a drug lord's cartel or that federal investigations have special plans for Mr. Welch.

JUSTICE BETRAYED is a fascinating tale of how far the federal government will go to win the war on illegal drugs. The story line is fast-paced and is so realistic that readers will think they have a front row seat to a riveting thriller. Daniel Bailey has a distinct and refreshing writing style that leads this reviewer to conclude that he will have a long run as a successful author.
