NEW RELEASE…. Author John W. Mefford introduces Ivy Nash in the second series of the Redemption Thriller Collection.
A volatile hostage situation at a foster home reaches a bitter end: shots are fired, some die, some live to tell a sordid tale. In the midst of the anguish and confusion is one child who will bear the scars of this unbelievable turmoil.
As a special investigator for Child Protective Services, Ivy Nash lives by one rule: she’ll do anything to fight for the wellbeing of children. Anything. Something that was never done for her. As a “system” kid, she spent time in seventeen foster homes. Seventeen.
Very quickly, the facts of the case are blurred…accusations of sibling abuse, connections to drugs. Nothing lines up, and authorities want it all to go away. Their target? A ten-year-old boy. Unrelenting in her pursuit to find the truth, Ivy and her new friend Cristina uncover alarming new information to pinpoint who is at the root of the crime.
But evil knows no boundaries. Shockwaves of her most horrific childhood memories erupt into the present, and Ivy knows that she’s in the fight for her life.
I was so excited to read this book. I love the Alex Troutt Series and was really looking forward to reading this new series. The good news is I was not dissapointed!
What I love most about this series is that Ivy is a system kid. I grew up with friends from foster homes and so many think that they can not amount to anything, but here is a role model for all of them, yes she is fictional, and yes this is not a book for kids, but I have and will continue to recommend it to older teens and young adults.
On to the book! I really enjoyed the twist and turns in this book. It’s a escape from reality that makes you think, makes you wonder and completely proves you wrong. I really recommend this book to anyone who loves a good thriller. I am really looking forward to the next book!
Part of the Redemption Thriller Collection which includes the Alex Troutt Thrillers and the upcoming Ivy Nash Thrillers. While all of the novels can be read as a stand-alone, there is a connecting thread in the Redemption Thriller books that will be unveiled over time. For a more fulfilling reading experience, books should be read in order: Alex Troutt, and then Ivy Nash. More series will be added into the collection within the next year.
"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
