Wow! I cannot begin to explain how much I enjoyed this book. I have followed the Redemption series from the start and I have enjoyed all the books in the series thus far. However, if I had to choose a favorite Back at You would win hands down. This installment took me on a journey that was not only intense but also emotional, suspenseful and action packed.
I always admired Alex in her role as both a mother and an FBI agent. This installment highlighted how serious she took her role as a Mom. It could not have been easy for when she received a call that would plunge her into her worst nightmare ever. Because of that call she found herself in a race against time. To rescue her, she was plunged into a world of child prostitution and drug dealing.
Alex’s fear and pain leapt off the pages. As an FBI agent, situations like these are the norm but as a mother, it is the scariest situation to face.
This installment reunited fans with Ivy Nash. Once again, I was thrown back into Ivy’s world. Ivy finds herself in the middle of an apparent case of kidnapping. Not one to turn her back on a child in need she immediately took it upon herself to investigate. As she gets deeper into the investigation, she discovers there is more to this kidnapping case.   As the story develops, we see how Alex’s situation connects with Ivy’s case.  They will both work together to break up the prostitution and drug ring.
This installment reminded me why she was one of my favorite heroines. Calm in the face of trouble, a quick thinker, relentless and cares deeply about children and her friends.
Back at You is a well written, action-packed and suspenseful story, which featured an awesome, cast of characters. The author’s writing style sided in pulling me in to the story. The description of the different scenes and characters made me feel as if I were actually a part of the story.
The story wrapped up quite well. The story ended on an emotional note, which was fitting given the circumstances. It also set the pace for the start of the next book in the series.
Fans of mysteries thrillers will enjoy this latest book in the Redemption series. Although each case is different, it would be best to read the series in order, to better appreciate the development of the characters throughout the series.

The voice was disguised.… 

The agonizing message was not. 

Alex gets a call no parent should ever receive. It’s a dagger to her heart. But she can’t afford to stop.

Forced to carry out the wishes of the captors, Alex is threatened at every turn. It defiles her, but she’ll do anything to get her daughter back. Will it work?

The treacherous journey is never-ending. Her life is threatened, but she brushes it off. The connection to her family member is still strong. But will she ever see her again?

An Amber Alert in San Antonio — and Ivy Nash intercepts the assailant. But the story behind the story grabs her by the throat. Would a mother actually do such a thing, or is this simply a custody issue?

Two paths intersect, and neither Alex nor Ivy will back down. They must save the lives of these young girls.

The opioid crisis devours people by the thousands. And those behind it slither around like snakes, using the addicted like they’re animals on the end of a leash. Can anyone stop the cycle of abuse?

It all has to stop. One life at a time. One daughter at a time. Alex and Ivy will either succeed or die in the process.

Who will make it out alive?

But in the end, could there be one shining moment?

The Scoop 
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.
