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.

Following on from the life changing events in ON Edge, Ozzie is heading to Hawaii on the back of a letter sent to him by his prom date from 10 years prior, stating that his daughter is missing! Yeah if Ozzie’s life couldn’t get any more messed up! Denise is someone he hasn’t seen since prom and had no idea that their one night together had resulted in him being a dad, as Denise had moved to Hawaii after graduating and didn’t want to bother Oz with a child.

When he gets to Hawaii not only does he find out that Denise hasn’t had the best of life, taking to drugs and prostitution to get by, but also that she suspects the Japanese mob of taking their daughter Mackenzie. What happens from here on sees Ozzie fight to find his daughter following a riddle that has them head to West Virginia.

The dots slowly start to connect and we are met with Ozzie heading to a place called Camp Israel – my brain was going crazy connecting everything together, and the adrenaline rush along side Ozzie as he kept getting closer to finding his daughter. The Game is well and truly ON and this is really an emotional ride for him to get to his daughter alivebut with a whole host of characters old an new come together to help him, you know everything will work out right? Well you will just have to read it to find that out.

I loved Alex & Ivy but boy does Ozzie go through some serious crap to get on par with them! And I can’t wait to what Mefford has in store for Ozzie, this one has plenty of action, suspense and emotions that you will not want to stop reading.

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.
