WHERE TO START?
FIND OUT WHICH SERIES IS BEST FOR YOU:
GENRE: CRIME | MYSTERY
Number of books in series: 4
Movie Rating: Strong PG-13
Language: Cussing only when it's needed. And it's definitely needed in a few memorable scenes.
Sex / romance: Michael and his girlfriend are into each other, but nothing explicit. But it's the bond they share that creates such a riveting story line.
Humor: Enough to maintain the ebb and flow of the story.
Violence: A handful of scenes will get your attention, but it's the twisted plots that will take your breath away.
For fans of...: John Sandford, Lisa Gardner, Lyndee Walker
One-sentence blurb: A riveting crime mystery series that follows one man who must overcome greed at every corner.
Coolest part of writing the Greed Thrillers: As my first-ever published series, it was great to explore the motivations behind all the forms of greed through Michael's eyes. So many scenes stand out, but I loved the final scene of book 3, Wicked Greed. It still gets me every time I read it.
GENRE: ACTION | MYSTERY | PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR
Number of books in series: 6
Movie Rating: Strong PG-13
Language: Well-placed cussing, given the environment Booker finds himself in.
Sex / romance: A certain woman shoots an arrow into Booker's heart. But is the tip laced with poison?
Humor: Injected at the right time to make you remember that Booker is a real person (in my fictional world).
Violence: Overall rather mild, although a few scenes are quite personal.
For fans of...: James Patterson and Alex Cross, Robert Crais
One-sentence blurb: They robbed Booker of his badge, but they couldn't erase his calling.
Coolest part of writing the Booker series: Writing Booker gave me an opportunity to create a PI that was street-savvy, flawed in many respects, but still very connected to his community. Loyalty is big in my books. But so is conflict. And Booker gets hit from all sides, even those he never expected.
John W. Mefford
An Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble, and a Readers' Favorite Gold Medal winner.
A veteran of the corporate rat-race, John W. Mefford never realized he was mentally documenting every experience of his professional journey that would spill onto the fictional page -- not until he started his first novel during a so-called corporate "timeout."
A voracious reader of mystery-thrillers since before he could shave, John enjoys weaving a twisty tale that keeps readers riveted until the last page.
He's also learned he's pretty good at embellishing. Just don't tell his fourth-grade teacher.
