Alexandra Giordano never knew she had it so good. Until it was all gone in an instant.
As she begins her daunting quest to uncover the black spots on her memory, what she finds isn’t sweet or charming or even pleasant. And that’s when she begins to question everything, including herself.
Her work as a Special Agent for the FBI is only a distraction, serving as a mental metronome…anything to crank the gears of her feeble mind.
And then it happens—a bizarre, ritualistic murder. She loses herself in her work, fully immersed
in the investigation. Unable to recall even her own kids, she’s somehow able to formulate
coherent theories on what type of person could pull off such a sickening act.
As her mind slowly plugs a few memory gaps, her emotions are scrambled by the reality of her
worlds colliding. And the resulting explosion tears her in two.
Can she pick up all the incendiary fragments to solve the twisted crime while she clings to some
semblance of sanity?
One woman can only keep so much…AT Bay.

My Review –
Imagine waking up in the hospital and not remembering how you got there, or even who she is. That is exactly the position that Alexandra Giordano is in. Being told she is an FBI Special Agent, yet with no recollection of anything it all seems so far fetched, so beyond what could be true in her eyes. Everything is a mystery, herself, her husband, her children, everyone she works for.
Struggling to put a puzzle together in which only everyone else knows the pieces too Alex is left to try and find herself in a world or chaos. Memories start to return slowly and her skills are put to the test as she is teaming up with a former partner to solve a murder. While she can’t recall her own family life she snaps to attention with a serial killer on the loose, able to dive right into work as if she were made to do it. Doubt creeps up on her, with how little memories actaully have any focus on her very family, and all center around work. How can that be?
With doubt and faded memories, Alex must try to piece together not just a murder but her own life before it all spirals out of her control. Can Alex balance out the questions versus reality of her own life and find a killer? Or will she succumb to the memories she’s unfolded and let a killer walk as it consumes her whole? You’ll have to pick up At Bay and read to find out!
I have only just begun to read John F Mefford , and I must say he really knows how to write a suspenseful thriller like no other. Love how as soon as you start to read there’s no turning back, that is unless you are doing a double take on a serious curve ball thrown into the plot. This is exactly what is needed to keep readers going, something that you never saw coming, twists and turns that make you question till the very last page. I’ve enjoyed a couple of Mefford’s books so far and cannot wait to dive into the rest of this series ! If you enjoy a great suspense, crime thriller I highly recommend Mefford’s books.
At Bay is the first in this series, check out some other of his books below and don’t forget to enter the giveaway while you’re here!

About the Author
A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.
John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.
When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.
John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.
