@jwmefford #Review #Giveaway #Thriller

NEW RELEASE….

A painting. A memory. A death. 

Can safe refuge ever be found? 

Mindi Mendrano was a golden goddess with a tennis prowess few had ever seen.

And then she vanished.

Who had the greatest motive to kill her?

Before Cooper Chain can finally get the green light to pen his first book — a biography on a once-famous tennis phenom — he must find her. If she’s still alive.

Can secrets kill?

A man disappears into the bowels underneath the city of Dallas, and Willow Ball can’t make sense of it or the odd people she befriends. Does at least one man have an ulterior motive?

Two die the hard way, leaving Willow and Cooper scrambling to see through a haze of clues.

Can secrets kill?

Retracing every aspect of Mindi’s former life, team Ball & Chain uncover a key to her past. But will it unlock memories that create the ultimate time bomb?

The very existence of a hidden society is on the line — and one man will either force their loyalty or recreate one of the deadliest events in modern history.

Can secrets kill?

Cooper and Willow have one chance to stop the killing and save a life. But will they be too late?

Get LURE now! 

You’ll love this Ball & Chain thriller if you’re a fan of the Fox & O’Hare novels by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, Michael Connelly’s Ballard and Bosch, David Baldacci’s King and Maxwell, Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles, or the TV show “Castle.”

Don’t miss MERCY (The Ball & Chain Thrillers Book 1) my review

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?

Don’t miss FEAR (The Ball & Chain Thrillers Book 2) my review 

Her death has haunted him for over thirty years. 

And he’s hell-bent on making someone pay. 

A father goes missing. Not just any father. But a person once worshipped for his world-class talent.

Enter the most unconventional team around: Willow Ball and Cooper Chain.

As a nurse at the community clinic, Willow has seen the painful effects of heroin addiction. But now she’s compelled to help a grieving wife and mother.

Dodging the mob at every turn, Cooper has a plan to bring them down while getting traction on his upstart career. Is he marching into a trap?

With their relationship bordering the “friends with benefits” stage, Willow and Cooper team up to find the missing person. But it’s not that simple. Nothing with them is ever simple.

The hunt corkscrews into an impossible maze of events — their lives threatened by a swarm of twisted deviants and social misfits.

Emotions run rampant, stoking one savage response after another. A spark ignites the hate, but what is the real fuel for this wave of brutal crimes?

Ultimately, can Willow and Cooper save a family from the torment before it’s too late?

Only if they can overcome their own…fear.

Don’t miss BURY (The Ball & Chain Thrillers Book 3) my review

Air pumps into the dark night sky.

The blade of the shovel digs deeper and deeper.

And the cries from below are slowly devoured by the howl of a coyote. 

Willow Ball and Cooper Chain are tied at the hip — on some days that’s a fantasy, other days a curse.

But there’s one thing they agree on: if they hope to outsmart a ruthless crime boss, luck will have to fall their way.

But that’s only part of their perilous imbroglio. Life slips off the rails in a hurry . . . and the implications could be deadly.

A shallow grave is uncovered… and it’s the unthinkable. With little evidence, authorities have no suspects. But could this be connected to a similar incident more than two decades earlier?

When another girl goes missing, their world stops down. How is Cooper’s daughter caught up in the web?

Every path seems blocked, because every person wants something buried. Does that include what Willow and Cooper feel for each other?

Cops are gunned down, friends are framed and murdered — how can Willow and Cooper make sense of it all to finally end the mayhem?

But when one more person goes missing, it shreds Cooper’s heart.

What will Cooper and Willow sacrifice to save his daughter?

 REVIEW

Lure is book 4 in the Ball & Chain series from John Mefford. I do advise you read from the start as there are story lines and connections that are central theme in this book – the Saks brother and the point shaving scheme that Copper and Willow seem to have gotten themselves into for example, you can read it as a stand alone but for the full back story start at the beginning.

This book had a lot going on at the same time as usual, Willow and Coop’s relationship is moving up a notch and the every present humour between them makes this lighthearted at times amidst the horror that is going on around them. Underground walking tunnels, missing tennis pros and of course dead bodies are all in store for our duo in this book

As I have come to learn from John’s books everything is eventually connected, and after this one I can’t wait to see how he pulls it all together into the bigger picture. We know what Willow’s father is up to something shady, but he has took off again, but his name pops up with the killer in this book, leaving me with many many questions that I can not wait to have answered as the books go on.

4 stars
