Author – John Ryder.
John Ryder is a former farmworker and joiner. He’s turned his hand to many skills to put food on the table and clothes on his back. A life-long bibliophile, he eventually summoned the courage to try writing himself, and his Grant Fletcher novels have drawn inspiration from authors such as Lee Child, Tom Cain, Zoe Sharp and Matt Hilton. When it comes to future novels, he says he has more ideas than time to write them.
When not writing, John enjoys spending time with his son, reading and socialising with friends. A fanatic supporter of his local football team, he can often be found shouting encouragement to men much younger and fitter than he is.

When girls go missing here, no one says a word…
Twenty-four-year-old Lila has disappeared without trace. It’s the kind of case that ex-military loner Grant Fletcher would normally be happy to take on—he will always seek justice if someone has the money to pay him. But this one he’s doing for free. This one’s personal.
Because Fletcher owes his life to Lila’s father. And Fletcher knows that returning Lila safe and sound is the only thing that matters to his wheelchair-bound friend.
She last called her father from a small town in rural Georgia. Arriving there, Fletcher’s feet barely touch the ground before he finds trouble. He also discovers that his friend’s daughter wasn’t the first girl to go missing there. Not the first by far.
Then the last person to have seen Lila before she disappeared is murdered. As an outsider, Fletcher becomes the local deputy’s only suspect, leaving him no choice but to go on the run. Because Fletcher knows someone’s abducting girls in this town. And he also knows he’s the only person who can find them…
Fans of high-octane action and unforgettable heroes like Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne and David Baldacci’s Amos Decker will love First Shot.
Today is my stop on the First Shot blog tour. Many thanks to Bookouture for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – Wow what a great read. A action packed story that has you turning the pages, or thumbing your kindle very quickly!
A couple decide to go on a road trip and get more than they bargain for when Lila disappears, she leaves a diner and within minutes she is gone. Her partner is met with silence, no-one knows or wants to help.
Luckily for the partner and unluckily for the town, Grant Fletcher decides to investigate. Lila is related to someone he would do anything for. Grant hits the town and finds out that Lila isn’t the only woman to have disappeared. So where do all the women go?
This is great introduction to Grant Fletcher as we see he flex his muscles but also his brains as he outwits the town residents.
