Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
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?
Get Shame ON You now!
I thought I hadn’t read this book and panicked but the second I started (re)reading the book; it all came flooding back.
This edition involved Ivy working a case of a missing girl and threw us into a crazy world.
There were a lot of players and a lot of action.
There were different pieces to the story (as usual) that linked everything together eventually but as John Mefford does so well; I was on the edge of my seat and could not get enough.
Every time I think a book of Mefford’s can’t get better; he does. He constantly one ups his own writing.
I cannot wait to see what comes next – not just action wise but for Ozzie’s love life too. I am definitely siding with Ivy on that one!
Redemption Thriller Series
Books in the Alex Troutt Thrillers:
AT Bay AT Large
Books in the Ivy Nash Thrillers:
IN The End
Books in the Ozzie Novak Thrillers
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. 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.

A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and an astute observer of human and social behavior, John W.

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.
