"In Pursuit", by John W. Mefford

IN Pursuit (An Ivy Nash Thriller, Book 2) (Redemption Thriller Series 8) - John W. Mefford

Ivy Nash Thriller book #2

Redemption Thriller book #8

I love John Mefford’s books because you can rarely figure out how the mystery will turn out, definitely hard to guess who the perpetrator is, who he is pursuing, who might be his next victim, when his next move will be and what gruesome action he will do next. “In Pursuit”, is much darker than anything I have read so far by this author. It is simply spine-chilling, evil and hair-raising. Even with all this, I loved every moment.

We follow two threads seamlessly, jumping between characters and time frames with no confusion. Although the subject matter may be over the top it is smoothly put together so we can read it with ease.

A serial killer is terrorizing San Antonio and the method of murder is beyond macabre. Ivy Nash seemed to be the one intersecting point between the victim and herself. She is pulled into the case by her police friend.

Meanwhile Ivy is on a case of a run-away teen looking for her parents.

M. Mefford once again has created a winning crime thriller with defined characters and a dramatic plot that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning pages furiously. The story is visual; it definitely would make a captivating movie. This is no doubt that books from this author are my kind of books, ones that are captivating from the start and never let go.

I am a huge fan of this author, I simply love the way he writes. This may be the second book in this series but it has been more than a dozen I have read so far. I loved them all.
