The slayings are calculated and cold-blooded...

...but it's deceit that has Alex staring at the face of death.

Extortion, bombings, and assassinations have created fear inside and outside of the beltway -- all while being nearly invisible. Alex goes off the books to try to stop a group that has re-defined modern-day terrorism.

Alex has no choice but to pull in Ozzie -- they only find more death. A young woman with so much hope...two bullets in the back of her head. How does she connect to all the other deaths in cities across the world?

Alex can only see one common thread: a blood-thirsty quest to obtain control. And that control will kill hundreds of thousands to pad the pockets of the group's leadership.

Shots fly. Alex and Ozzie try to escape death. But how do all the pieces fit together? They can't. Not unless there's a betrayal that will turn Alex's world upside down -- just before she's shot in the face.

You think you'll identify the Judas. But no one can predict how treacherous the mind becomes.

Is this the last day of Alex's life?

Another great Alex Trout thriller. If you have read any of the Redemption Thriller Series you will see some of the same characters in the other books. This is a fast paced book with lots of twist and turns and action. Alex is busy trying to solve the mystery so Ozzie can go back to Austin. I have really enjoyed all of John’s books. So if you like fasted paced books with lots of action this is a must read..

Mystery, crime, humor, and drama for a compelling crime thriller! AT Any Cost is the 8th installment in the Alex Troutt Thriller series. A detailed packed thrill with a new adventure that you don’t want to miss. The plot surges forward, pulling us along as we turn the pages a mile a minute. It promises to keep readers up reading into the night. Mefford’s writing is smooth, absorbing and always interesting. There is enough surprise twists and turns to satisfy any heebie-jeebie enthusiast. Mefford’s skill in plotting drama and crime that can turn on a dime is as sharp here as in his previous works. The characters are well developed with a crisp dialogue that moves the story smartly along. AT Any Cost will keep fans happy while showing he is one of the masters of crime suspense. Once again, Mefford does not disappoint ! John W Mefford knows how to bring a story to life, give you a thrill and keep your attention. He is a very talented writer that I have come to enjoy and look forward to what he comes up with next. John does a great job of intertwining the characters from his different series. This author is definitely high up on my go-to author list. It is hard to go wrong with a John Mefford book and AT Any Cost is one of those that will keep you up late at night, seeking to read just one more chapter. Mefford combines mystery, crime, humor, and drama for a compelling crime thriller.

John W Mefford has done it again. This latest addition to Alex Troutt's series is page turning, as in I didn't want to put the book down. Add to that the fact that more than just Alex is in the book and it is like a family reunion of sorts. If you read the bit above, you will wonder if it is Alex's last day to live. The book has many chances where Alex may not make it out of a spot. But that particular spot is like a preview at the beginning of the book. I wasn't sure I liked that little bit at the front of the book. I kept looking for it to happen in the book and looking for it to happen. I also had some issues from a previous book resolved in this book. That is one of the great parts of a book being in a series. An author leaves you hanging in one book - and it may not even be something everyone picks up on - but it comes back so everyone will notice it and is resolved in a future book. You definitely want to pick up a copy of AT Any Cost. It is a great read whether you are following the series or as a standalone. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

This book starts out with a bang--literally! Alex is cornered and someone is pointing a gun right at her head--she closes her eyes and hears the click of the trigger----- You are then taken through quite a scenario of how this all came to be. Her house is bombed--did everyone get out? Ezzy-her intrepid housekeeper/friend has heart trouble--and is keeping a deep dark secret of her own! Ozzie is trying to help her find a really bad guy--and there is a mole in the FBI unit!! This one will keep you reading and wondering up until the very end---the ending is not clear--did someone save Alex or was she murdered--I guess we will have to wait until the next book for a definitive answer.

If anyone is good at making my heart pound so loudly that it is deafening, it's John W Mefford! With each book that comes, I know we're one closer to the conclusion. The ride has been nothing short of phenomenal and AT Any Cost definitely didn't disappoint. John lets us get comfortable with how Alex and Ozzie are adjusting to life despite the tragedies that they have faced. I enjoyed getting a closer look at Alex's personal relationships with her family. Along with Ozzie, Alex is ready to move forward into a safe new world but with a twist of fate back onto a dark path keeps them from achieving that happy ending. The murders begin almost from the very start, throwing you right into a whirlwind of crimes that doesn't seem to quite make sense....until it does. Then BOOM! A betrayal - very close in nature - takes the world, turns it upside down, and violently shakes it into oblivion. I was left with a chill in my bones and completely breathless!
