IN The End – A Book Review

 

NEW RELEASE….
A generation has lost its way. And no one will sin without retribution.Parents are crushed after their daughter is ripped from their lives. Ivy chases every lead, but the fog of deception is deep.

So very deep.

For mankind, the end is near. How many sacrifices will it take before the cataclysmic events can’t be stopped?

It was supposed to be a confession. Instead, it became a statement of conviction — to Satan.

Will Ivy be able to stop a demonic killer?

It’s one woman’s pledge to save a generation from a fanatical psychopath.

It’s one man’s path to claim his destiny.

Can Ivy possibly back away from the threat?

He believes Ivy has sinned. And it is time for her life to end…just like all the others.

“Rife with deceit and deception and characters that leap off the page, this story is told with confidence through a sure hand, engaging both the mind and the heart. A compelling treat.” — Steve Berry, New York Times Bestselling Author“An intense and heart wrenching story that keeps you engaged from beginning to end.”
— Simon Wood, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of DECEPTIVE PRACTICES.


“I love the way that Mefford writes, seamlessly jumping between characters and time frames with no confusion, and he is extremely descriptive of the setting . You almost feel like you are watching a movie instead of reading a book!” — Hilary Mahoney, Elusive Red Tiger

The Scoop 
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, 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.

I love John W Mefford’s writing style. Yet, I, as a Catholic Christian – heck, I would imagine as any Christian – struggled with this book. It is graphic but most of the Ivy Nash books have been graphic in the description of crimes. It was the involvement of the church that threw me.

IN The End is the last of the Ivy Nash books. Nash is a private investigator. Her life brought her to this place. She grew up in the foster care system and then went to work for social services. When she left there, she started her own private investigation firm – ECHO – to help with finding lost children.

In this book, Ivy is approached by two parents whose daughter is missing. They will not involve the police as they are illegal immigrants and are afraid they will find their daughter and lose her all at once by being sent back to their birth country. Ivy tries and tries to explain the pluses of involving the authorities. The first hours when a child is missing are critical and the police have ways of getting the information to the public so they can help.

In the time period that Ivy is looking for this daughter, several other teens are murdered in local churches. Even this violence does not convince the father to call in the police.

Mefford has again written a book I could not put down. While it is part of a series, you can read it as a standalone and I suggest you do. 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.
