ON The Run – A Book Review


They are the winds of fate… They lift your spirit to soaring heights.And then there is that one staggering, but unforgettable, moment…A body plummets into the stormy water and, along with it, swallows Ozzie’s heart.

Can it actually be true?

But mourning isn’t painful enough. Not by a long shot.

Determined to disprove the unthinkable, Ozzie hunts every possible suspect. Along the way, he’s exposed to those who have axes to grind and those with not an ounce of human decency.

But could any of them actually pull off something like this?

Old friends from Ozzie’s past are just the steady hand he needs to separate fact from fiction and end this pursuit for good.

But in blows another breeze, and this one carries a stench so rotten, Ozzie is nearly destroyed.

Could Ozzie have predicted that fate could be this cruel?

There is still one innocent soul to save, and Ozzie will do anything to ensure his life with his daughter is secure. Even if he has to kill for it.

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 (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.

About the Author

Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble, and a Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal winner.John W. Mefford has been writing his debut novel since he first entered the work force almost thirty years ago, although he never put words on paper until 2009. Once he started writing, however, he couldn’t stop. Many readers ask John from where he gets his ideas. Well, he’s a veteran of the corporate rat-race, a former journalist, and he’s always been an astute observer of human and social behavior. On top of that, he’s really good at embellishing.

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.

I have been reading the Redemption Thriller Series since the beginning. Some of them have me thinking “how does someone come up with something so depraved” while others I can figure the twists and turns out. This book was a little of both.

I have to say that I was totally shocked, even though the title ON the Run should have been a giveaway, that Ozzie would take off to try and solve the crime himself. I am not at all sure how I feel about Mefford killing off such an important person but it leaves some openings that I have been waiting for since Ozzie arrived on the Redemption Thriller scene.

You need to pick up a copy of John W Mefford’s ON the Run. You will not be disappointed and I sat on the edge of my seat while reading it. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
