IN Pursuit by John W Mefford (An Ivy Nash Thriller, Book 2) (Redemption Thriller Series)

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- 

A new case lands on Ivy Nash’s hands and she’s ready to take it head on- there’s just one problem. The one connection between horrific murders is herself and there’s no escaping it. A serial killer is on the loose and Ivy must figure out why she’s been tied into the murdered victims quickly before she too may become a target. 

As Ivy tries to uncover the serial killers true path and try to put an end to the growing number of victims she’s got another case to solve- a runaway teen. Nothing is ever as it seems, at first glance a runaway teen isn’t uncommon but ones with missing parents is, and thus brings Ivy deep into a twisted case that seems to have more puzzling dead-ends than answers.  

Hot on a serial killers tracks and uncovering a puzzling disappearance case Ivy is sure she has got both cases nearly tied up and solved, but nothing is ever as it seems. Reaching the end of the hot trail has her question if she’d even gotten any closer to solving either case with danger lurking right around the corner , putting her life in jeopardy. 

Will Ivy be able to catch the killer before he kills someone else? Or will the killer catch her in a violent game of cat and mouse? You’ll have to pick up IN Pursuit in order to find out!

 John Mefford has once again created a winning crime thriller that keeps readers on the edge of their seats, and turning pages. With well defined characters and a dramatic plot you can’t go wrong with any of his books. In Pursuit is a must read if you enjoy fast paced thrillers!

Q&A with author John W. Mefford:

Q: What do the Ivy Nash Thrillers have to do with the Redemption Thriller Series?

JWM: The Ivy Nash Thrillers comprise the second sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series. The Alex Troutt Thrillers are the first sub-series. While I’ll eventually write a series that connects the major characters and plots from all the sub-series, you don’t have to read the AT books prior to the IN books. But I have to say, the AT thrillers are darn good.

Q: So you’re saying you don’t have to read the Alex Troutt Thrillers before the Ivy Nash Thrillers?

JWM: Nope. While a few of the characters might occasionally overlap between the series, they can be read as stand-alone. And then I’ll wrap everything up in a final set of six novels that connects all of the main characters and stories from each sub-series. If you haven’t read any of the Alex Troutt thrillers yet, you can try out the first three at a pretty nice discount. Just search for Alex Troutt Box Set.

Q: Can you give some insight into how Ivy Nash might connect to Alex Troutt down the line?

JWM: Sure…and then I’ll send over a hit squad. Seriously, I’ll be sprinkling in a few clues along the way for those who pay close attention to the details, but it will all come together in that final six novels of the Redemption Thriller Series. And it will be explosive and gut-wrenching at the same time.

Q: How many different sub-series are you planning to have in the Redemption Thriller Series?

JWM: Right now, I see four sub-series in the Redemption Thriller Series, with six novels in each. It’s the most challenging and fulfilling creative endeavor I’ve undertaken. I hope you enjoy the journey.

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.

    The timing of this review is perfect! I have been googling what my next book will be as I finish my current one (I’m one of those people who wants my next book at the ready lol) and this sounds fast paced and exciting! Right up my alley.

    I love crime shows on tv, but haven’t read any novels. This thriller sounds like a great way to dig into the genre.
