At Last, Alex Troutt Thriller:Book 6 - Review


New Release....
Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #6
AT Last

Thirty years after losing a parent to a hit-and-run drunk driver, FBI agent Alex Troutt finally confronts the killer--the same man who just murdered the Boston police chief.
And what Alex pulls from him shatters her core.

Armed with little more than hope and a shred of decades-old evidence, Alex chases a memory from her past, hoping that she'll find the mother she never really had. With her old buddy Archie on board --as much as ever can be -- the hunt takes her deep into the foothills of West Virginia. A fanatical religious cult has created its own society. Desperate to right a thirty-year wrong, Alex must out-think and out-duel everyone in her path to right a thirty-year wrong.

Will Alex’s quest to find the truth destroy her life all over again?

My Review

John W Mefford's Alex Troutt Thriller series is a group of books that can be read in succession or each one can stand alone. This most recent addition to the series, At Last, finds our lead detective, Alex, saying goodbye to her father and heading off to chase the ghost of her mother whom she had up-until-now believed dead.

Secrets long buried are unearthed in an ongoing investigation that reveal truths which threaten to unravel Alex world, which is just finally beginning to gel, send her into hot pursuit of the relationship daughters dream of with their Moms.

It's incredible to follow Alex Troutt's development as she fights to regain her life as a mother, as a detective, and as a partner. Now she's fighting for a chance to be a daughter. New characters emerge and old ones are more developed; the story races along at an intense speed, and there is mystery, drama and even some humor.

It's great to see the relationship between Alex and her Agent love interest fleshed out (pun intended); and to get more background on the inner-office connections. Even the deep background on Troutt is good story for readers. I was looking for more of a connection with Alex Mom's past and the group - the cloak and dagger in that scenario was intense without a clear reason. That story line seems unfinished or unpolished. All in all, the book moves at a solid pace and never loses ground.

You don't need to have read them all, but why wouldn't you?

Review: Hurricane In Paradise by Deborah Brown

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove's sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It's only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.

Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?

Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconvention…

In Pursuit: An Ivy Nash Thriller by John W. Mefford: Review

NEW RELEASE....

The hunt is on…but who’s the one being pursued? 

A serial killer is terrorizing San Antonio, and the method of murder is beyond macabre. As Ivy Nash is pulled into the case by her police detective friend, Stan, there appears to be one intersecting point between the victims—Ivy herself.

Meanwhile, Ivy and her new organization, ECHO, take on a case for a run-away teen whose parents have disappeared. Was it self-imposed, or is something more nefarious going on?

Moving at a break-neck pace, the parallel trails to stop the killer and to find the missing parents seem both murky and crystal clear. But just as Ivy believes the end is near, past transgressions are slammed in her face—and nothing will be the same.

A man wants retribution. And he’ll even saw off his own leg if it means Ivy will suffer.

MY REVIEW Although Ivy Nash has separated from Child Protective Services, she is still in the business of protecting children. Now self-employed, Ivy runs a agency, ECHO,finding los…

In Defiance - Ivy Nash

NEW RELEASE....
Author John W. Mefford introduces Ivy Nash in the second series of the Redemption Thriller Collection.

A volatile hostage situation at a foster home reaches a bitter end: shots are fired, some die, some live to tell a sordid tale. In the midst of the anguish and confusion is one child who will bear the scars of this unbelievable turmoil.

As a special investigator for Child Protective Services, Ivy Nash lives by one rule: she’ll do anything to fight for the wellbeing of children. Anything. Something that was never done for her. As a “system” kid, she spent time in seventeen foster homes. Seventeen.

Very quickly, the facts of the case are blurred…accusations of sibling abuse, connections to drugs. Nothing lines up, and authorities want it all to go away. Their target? A ten-year-old boy. Unrelenting in her pursuit to find the truth, Ivy and her new friend Cristina uncover alarming new information to pinpoint who is at the root of the crime.

But evil knows no boundaries. S…
