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?
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!

IN The End
Books in the Ozzie Novak Thrillers
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 -- I'll write a final six novels that brings all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. 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.
