Alex still reeling from the loss of a loved one, and what she perceived as a betrayal by her significant other, along with Ozzie and their family visited Hawaii for a much-needed vacation.  Alex being a magnet for danger would soon find that what was supposed to be a time of healing and retrospection became a moment riddled with danger. While investigating, Alex and Ozzie made a discovery that shook them to come. As they for deeper to gain answers, they would find themselves at death’s door. Will they make it out alive or will this be the end for everything that Alex holds dear?

Kidnapping, corruption and murder along with the Yakuza involvement was the central themes of this installment.
Talk about nail-biting and edge of your seat suspense, At Death's Door had it all. In the last seventy percent of the book, I could barely hold my excitement as the story unfolded. I was nervous for both Alex and Ozzie especially when they discovered that not all who appeared friendly could be trusted. 

There were points in the story where the pacing slowed but it did not prevent me from enjoying it one bit as I knew it would only be a short stint.  In fact, I completed this book in one sitting, which is the norm when I pick up one of Mefford’s books.

From a personal and emotional aspect regarding Alex’s life there was a point in the story where I was a bit disappointed with her actions. I understood that she felt betrayed but after the revelation of the truth instead of harboring feelings of empathy; she held on to bitterness, which was unnecessary.  I am glad she came to her senses although it took her teenage daughter coupled with her being at death door for her to see the light.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Fans of mysteries, thrillers and suspense would love this latest offering from Medford.  At Death's Door offered a suspenseful ride coupled with the personal growth and emotional turmoil of Alex Trout.




It's the perfect system -- for the rich and powerful.

But who has the guts to take them down?

All it takes is a slight shift in the tectonic plates and two thousand miles later, a tidal wave engulfs the Big Island.

This time, the deluge is in the form of greed and treachery. And many in the land of paradise will do anything to keep it hidden under the surface.

But when severed limbs start rolling onto the shore, Alex has another thing in mind -- even when her heart is gutted. Despite the shock of a lifetime, Alex won't stop until someone pays the ultimate price.   Will she be destroyed in the process?

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.
