REVIEW: AT Stake (An Alex Troutt Thriller, Book 7) (Redemption Thriller Series 19) by John W Mefford


NEW RELEASE....

A desperate attempt to survive, or the plot of a twisted killer? 


Bombs rip through the Boston Marathon crowd. Just like the last time, hysteria engulfs New England. Alex's injured partner clings to life, and she won't sleep until the culprit is found. Can she push her way on to the task force?

Rumors swirl, but hard evidence is as elusive as an icy glacier. With her FBI team wrapped up in the formal investigation, Alex pulls in her newest confidante. Ozzie and Alex team up to quickly separate fact from fiction. But what seems right could be so very wrong.

A brutal murder and robbery. Where is this hunt taking them? Could it be nothing more than a cover?

Secrets from the past come to light, and that's when all bets are off. You think it's over, but it's not. Not by a long shot. The brains behind this crime aren't from this world, and Alex's family may not be able to escape the carnage.

Can Alex handle losing another family member to a sick, twisted person?

The ties that bind people are impossible to detect…especially those with long-standing vendettas. It's a harrowing race to get to the killer…even as soldiers of death continue to make their mark on the city of Boston.

Will Alex survive the onslaught?

My Review

An insane maniac with a long thought out plan, shadows of old nemesis’, and life-threatening personal crisis – Alex Troutt and Ozzie Novak’s personal and professional lives are in a whirlwind of upheaval. Still, the work methodically and courageously through the mayhem to save themselves and the city from the terror at hand.
All hell breaks loose on the day of the marathon, when multiple bomb explosions cause injuries, mayhem and rising fear in the city. Alex is already on site because Ozzie uncovered threats to the marathon while recovering from a near death experience at her house, and doing contract work for the FBI. Also, her daughter is running in the marathon.
Unbeknownst to them, at the time, the plot is way thicker than they can imagine. A real psychopath is on the loose with a well thought out plan and every intention on seeing it through. She’s been growing baby psychopaths to unleash her fury upon the unsuspecting targets and the marathon is just the beginning. Alex and Ozzie need to work together to unfurl the mystery before it’s everlasting too late.
Moreover, Alex is doubting her relationship with the hunky Brad and Ozzie is trying to figure out when he and his daughter will be safe to go home.
Every minute is an edge-of-the-seat fantastic ride! There wasn’t a moment when I didn’t need to keep reading to piece this mystery together – I absolutely NEEDED to get to the end. The twists and turns in the plot are incredulous. This is my favorite in the Redemption Thriller Series thus far, and even though it is a part of a series, it is incredible as a standalone read as well.

John Mefford continues to show us that he is a skilled plot master and a serious mystery writer. He has plans for us, as readers, to go on a journey. I cannot wait to see where it leads to next!

The Scoop 
By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I've included a cross-over character -- it's a lot more fun that way. Plus -- and here's the real kicker -- the final six novels will bring all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless.

About the Author
Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble, and a Readers' Favorite Gold Medal winner.

John W. Mefford has been writing his debut novel since he first entered the work force almost thirty years ago, although he never put words on paper until 2009. Once he started writing, however, he couldn't stop. Many readers ask John from where he gets his ideas. Well, he's a veteran of the corporate rat-race, a former journalist, and he's always been an astute observer of human and social behavior. On top of that, he's really good at embellishing.

A member of International Thriller Writers, John writes novels full of electrifying suspense -- the same types of books he has loved to read since before he could shave.

When he’s not writing, he chases his youth on bike or a basketball court, all while making mental notes of people and societies across the land.

On the Run: An Ozzie Novak Thriller Review


NEW RELEASE....

They are the winds of fate... 

They lift your spirit to soaring heights.

And then there is that one staggering, but unforgettable, moment…

A body plummets into the stormy water and, along with it, swallows Ozzie’s heart.

Can it actually be true?

But mourning isn’t painful enough. Not by a long shot. 

Determined to disprove the unthinkable, Ozzie hunts every possible suspect. Along the way, he’s exposed to those who have axes to grind and those with not an ounce of human decency.

But could any of them actually pull off something like this?

Old friends from Ozzie’s past are just the steady hand he needs to separate fact from fiction and end this pursuit for good.

But in blows another breeze, and this one carries a stench so rotten, Ozzie is nearly destroyed.

Could Ozzie have predicted that fate could be this cruel?

There is still one innocent soul to save, and Ozzie will do anything to ensure his life with his daughter is secure. Even if he has to kill for it.

MY REVIEW

Finally, Ozzie Novak's life is settling back into routine. He and his estranged wife - if a wife can be estranged within only 1 year of marriage - are back on solid ground, and their little family is looking forward. Right? Of course not. Ozzie Novak cannot catch a break. On the very date of their one year anniversary something tragic happens to Nicole as Ozzie witnesses, but cannot stop, events unfolding.

In an even worse twist of fate, he becomes the prime suspect! If he turns himself in, he's going to jail. He will lose not only his wife, but his 9-year-old daughter, for good. No, Ozzie has to go on the run and find out who is framing him and why. Nobody else is going to do it.

On The Run takes us on a whirlwind of fact finding, mystery revealing, murderer chasing adventure with Novak in his search to clear his name and vindicate Nicole. Finding the truth leads him to some places from his past, but even he is not ready for what is unveiled. Every step of the way, I was expecting something different than what really unfolded! This is a page turner all the way.

Eventually, all the cards are on the table, but not without some pain. Alex Troutt, FBI Agent is drawn end near the end to help her friend tie up the loose ends, and the dramatic ending does not fail to satisfy!

By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the soon-to-be-released Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels.

It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless. At least that's my hope.

Starting with IN The End (Nov. 10 release), I'll be launching a new book every 2-4 weeks. IN The End will segue into the Ozzie Novak Thrillers. ON Edge (book 1), is due out on November 28. From there, it will be non-stop suspense until all six Ozzie books are released. And my editor tells me that Ozzie Novak is my best character yet.:) So, I hope you're ready for some thrilling binge-reading.

ON Fire: An Ozzie Novak Thriller (John W Mefford)


NEW RELEASE....

Rainmakers rule – but nothing influences another man more than two bullets in the back of the head. 

A beautiful, ambitious woman is murdered. No one would have noticed if the person charged was anyone other than a lobbyist — one of the most powerful deal-makers in the world.

Ozzie is pulled in to help prove the egomaniac’s innocence. Early on, the evidence seems irrefutable…until it isn’t. Could who this man knows determine who lives and who dies?

Ozzie uncovers damaging information. His immediate reaction? Rage. The lobbyist had played a key role in helping destroy Ozzie’s old life. So how can Ozzie now help the man avoid a murder charge?

Forced to make a deal with the devil, Ozzie must determine how to out think the king of rainmakers. And that’s when Ozzie realizes this isn’t just a one-lane game. 

Ozzie flexes his own power of persuasion to fight through the haze of threats and outright danger. With everything on line, Ozzie’s instincts take him to the brink of death.

In the end, innocent people will die. Can Ozzie save his family from something he can’t see?


MY REVIEW!

Ozzie Novak is drawn into uncovering the mystery behind a murder which is not what it seems on the surface. A lobbyist dies, and a suspect arrested. The security cameras in the corridor outside her hotel room show Franklin Marshall as the suspect, only he has a solid alibi in his wife. 

Ozzie's old friend on the police force is dating the the lobbyist brother, and asks for his help. As an attorney he is well versed in the world of lobbying and the case is very lucrative for the P.I. But what he begins to uncover is not so cut and dry.

Alex Trout and her FBI team work with Ozzie to finally resolve the crime, which is intense and full of the plot twists and turns that have come to be common place for the Redemption Series by John W. Mefford. Once you think you know what should happen next, a new piece of evidence or player comes into the plot!

As usual, Mefford expands on the development of the main character, brings characters from the past novels into play, and pulls several climactic events together to keep us involved all the way through ON Fire. I don't want to give too much away, but this has been the most intense of the ON series thus far!

Shame ON You - An Ozzie Novak Thriller by John Mefford

NEW RELEASE....

Two shattered lives bound by one haunting secret. 

Chantel hasn't been the same since her sister went missing ten years ago. Ravaged by drug addiction ever since that fateful moment, Chantel vanished a month ago. Could the same kidnapper be involved?

Pulled into the investigation by his friend, Ivy Nash, Ozzie quickly learns the art of the addicted: deceit is a way of life.

Meanwhile, a high school reunion reminds Ozzie of the good old days, but some annoying personalities just haven't changed. Kate delivers a heart-wrenching song, honoring those who've died, in particular her cousin, a boy from Ozzie's class who made everyone smile -- and now, ten years later -- shed a tear.

The hunt for Chantel takes Ozzie and Ivy to the most dangerous places in Austin. A girl is bludgeoned to death -- they believe they have a key witness, but he slips away.
When Ozzie and Ivy finally get a clue from Chantel's feisty grandmother, what at first seems unthinkable could be reality. But there's far more to unraveling this bizarre set of events. Could this all circle back to his high school class? 

Two girls connected to one tragic event. Years have passed…people have died, and more could follow. But there is one demented soul who shames those he was meant to save.

Will Ozzie be able to solve this twisted mystery and save the ones who've suffered the most?
MY REVIEW
Of course Ozzie Novak is no normal Dad. As a P.I. he's drawn to mysteries, and when his long time friend Ivy Nash seeks his help with a case she's working on, he jumps right in. Nash is looking for Chantel, a 23-year-old addict, who has gone missing. Chantel has been addicted since her sister disappeared 10 years earlier. The case has it's twists and turns, including a mysterious name Nash finds at the crime scene, Psycho C; a body found bludgeoned to death,  and information from Chantel's grandmother. Novak has a friend on the police force that help the two P.I.'s in their pursuit of Chantel, and they work tirelessly to unravel the connections between the past and the present before it's too late.

Meanwhile, Novak is learning the ropes of being a single dad to Mackenzie, the daughter who just recently entered his life. Mackenzie has made a friend and Novak meets her Dad. In this addition to the Redemption series, readers get to see a different side of Novak. With Nash on the scene, there's almost a hint of future romance between the two and it's promising. Novak is still recovering from the insanity with his wife, but a Nash & Novak team is not unfavorable!

As per usual with John W. Mefford, this novel will stand on its own, even though it is part of the Redemption Thriller Series, and more immediately, #4 in the Ozzie Novak Thriller sub series.

As this sub series continues the full Redemption series merges together and Novak's character fleshes out. It's very exciting to see characters from the other books show up in this series - first Alex Troutt and now Ivy Nash. John W. Mefford is immensely talented to pull this off and I can't wait for each new installment to see how it all unfolds.
