Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #4
FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt returns in a twisting, heart-pounding thriller.
Three flashes of light illuminate a dark sky. An unspeakable evil devours its prey.
The shimmering view of the sun-drenched ocean can often be nothing more than a mirage. For Alex Troutt, a trip back home for a much-needed summer vacation proves only one thing: greed rules. But how it takes root could destroy her world.
Fueled by the lust of power and money, the shadow of death envelopes her seaside hometown, including those closest to Alex. But as disconnected investigations converge into one focal point, Alex will stop at nothing to blow the entire crime ring straight to hell—even if she has to make the ultimate sacrifice…her life.

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.
I do love a good mystery and John W Mefford has come through again. Add to the mystery of the shootings surrounding Alex Troutt the fact that this is another strong female main character and I read this book straight through, not putting it down.
Normally, I am drawn to the Alex Troutt books from the setting and Alex, of course. Previous books were set in the Boston area, a favorite city of mine. This particular one is set in Alex’s home town on the Gulf coast of Texas. Sun, sand and ocean water that is warm enough to actually swim in – not something you find in Boston very often – add to the mystery of the shootings and dead bodies that appear and seem to be involving Alex.
Almost more importantly, especially to Alex, these mysteries involve her children as they have been close by during the shootings. She must keep her family safe while helping local police stop the bloodshed in her hometown.
This book provides interesting glimpses into Alex’s past, including an appearance by her high school crush/boyfriend.
You should pick up a copy and delve into the world that rotates around Alex Troutt.
