Disclosure: I received a complimentary e-book copy of this book and have volunteered to share my review.
A desperate attempt to survive, or the plot of a twisted killer?
Bombs rip through the Boston Marathon crowd. Just like the last time, hysteria engulfs New England. Alex’s injured partner clings to life, and she won’t sleep until the culprit is found. Can she push her way on to the task force?
Rumors swirl, but hard evidence is as elusive as an icy glacier. With her FBI team wrapped up in the formal investigation, Alex pulls in her newest confidante. Ozzie and Alex team up to quickly separate fact from fiction. But what seems right could be so very wrong.
A brutal murder and robbery. Where is this hunt taking them? Could it be nothing more than a cover?
Secrets from the past come to light, and that’s when all bets are off. You think it’s over, but it’s not. Not by a long shot. The brains behind this crime aren’t from this world, and Alex’s family may not be able to escape the carnage.
Can Alex handle losing another family member to a sick, twisted person?
The ties that bind people are impossible to detect…especially those with long-standing vendettas. It’s a harrowing race to get to the killer…even as soldiers of death continue to make their mark on the city of Boston.
Will Alex survive the onslaught?
Get AT Stake now!
I love my John Mefford books and this one was no exception! I loved that Ozzie and Alex teamed up together in this mystery and the ending left me grasping for the next installment.
This one seemed to have gotten quite personal in regards to the attacks and piecing the mystery together was tons of fun because it was all just – mind baffling! I would think I had it solved and something would happen to throw another kink in the mix and I was back to square one with Ozzie and Alex trying to figure out what in the world was going on!
I am really hoping that with Ozzie still staying at Alex’s house, we will continue to see more of them together, doing the work they do best. I feel pretty certain the next installment has to have them both because I already have a feeling about the ending of this one. I am just hoping Alex can stop Ozzie’s stubbornness before it’s too late!
If you like a good mystery with edge of your seat action and suspense, John Mefford is the author for you. Hands down. All of the books can technically be read alone without missing the mystery and suspense, but you will want to read it from the beginning because they are just that good. Plus, it allows you to get to know each character and love them all like family.
Now an epic book would be putting Alex, Ozzie, Ivy AND Christina all in one. THAT would definitely be an adventure!

Books in the Alex Troutt Thrillers:
AT Any Costs
By now you’re probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the 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 — the final six novels will bring all of the major characters together — Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless.
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.
