I couldn’t be more thrilled that John W. Mefford has come out with a new suspenseful series for us to delve into! Read our review of Mercy below!
Disclosure: 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.
The torment builds and builds and builds…
He can’t deny it.
But in what form will the pressure erupt?
Cooper Chain isn’t just down on his luck — he’s almost down for the count. The mob wants a piece of him, and he sees no way out.
It’s a special week for Willow Ball, a woman who’s survived her own tribulations to reach this milestone in her life.
Through fate — or a temporary misalignment of the stars — Willow and Cooper cross paths for the first time since college. Will an unexpected spark re-ignite the flame?
A shattering discovery changes everything for Willow and Cooper. The murder is unlike any other. But what will the cops do about it?
Attacks ensure, chaos ruptures a family . . . Through it all, how can Willow and Cooper find the killer?
But it’s not over. As the bodies pile up, a pattern develops and it rocks Willow and Cooper to the core.
And then someone emerges after a three-decade disappearance. Could he be connected to this string of murders?
The past might provide the breadcrumbs to end this nightmare. But Willow and Cooper may not live long enough to see it through.
Will mercy save a life or end many?

If you’re a fan of Michael Connelly’s Ballard and Bosch, David Baldacci’s King and Maxwell, Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles, and the TV show “Castle,” then you’ll be sucked into this first, page-turning Ball & Chain thriller.
Readers are saying…
“MERCY is full of suspense and sass. An exciting, mind-blowing adventure.”
“Willow Ball and Cooper Chain are flawed and funny, yet so very real in how they deal with the heart-pounding curve balls.”
“You’ll be enthralled by the gripping story, and you’ll laugh out loud from the snarky interactions between Willow and Cooper. I hope this is the first of many killer Ball & Chain adventures.”
“The most original new thriller series out there!”
I am so excited for a new John Mefford series! I was heartbroken when the last series ended so I was beyond thrilled to get into a new one!
Being that I am used to a series already started and going – hey, it’s been awhile since he started this last series – the beginning seemed slow as we got to know our new characters, but the typical John Mefford was definitely there.
We still had mystery, thrill, and suspense and I definitely feel like we are still missing back stories on our characters so I cannot wait to keep reading to learn more about them. They are definitely different than our past characters and I cannot wait to learn more about them!
The mystery not only left you wondering who the suspect was, but also left you guessing as to who was going to fall prey at their hands as well – kind of a double edge sword mystery.
There was also a little side ring circus that kept us on our toes that I am sure will continue to develop and a thorn in that that I feel will also continue to unfold, leaving future stories filled with craziness and suspense!
I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our new characters and what mysteries John is going to throw our way!
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 volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
