BLOG TOUR - Third Kill


In a city of sinners, a killer is hunting…

Las Vegas, Nevada: a killer is on the hunt.

When the two of the city’s crime bosses are found brutally murdered within days of each other, the fragile balance of Sin City threatens to collapse. It’s exactly what the killer wants…

But there is one thing this killer hasn’t counted on…

Grant Fletcher has been sent to Vegas by a shady government agency. He has one job: find the killer, and stop them before more people die. Stop them, by any means.

Would you send a desperate man to find a vigilante killer?

It looks like a dangerous gamble. But what neither the killer—nor the government agency—know is that the odds are never good unless you’ve got Fletcher on your side.

Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne and J.B. Turner’s Jon Reznick will love the Grant Fletcher series.

Grant Fletcher has been hired to stop a dangerous killer. Eliminate them if necessary. Accompanied by his FBI handler, Special Agent Quadrago, Grant becomes all things to all people in order to infiltrate the Vegas casinos with hopes of flushing the killer out.

The killer is a vigilante. The ones murdered are certainly not model citizens by any means. Yet, murder is murder so the killer must be stopped. This action packed novel by John Ryder is filled with powerful characters, danger and tension at every turn. The killer has been identified as female and is called The Mantis. She is highly skilled and has always managed to evade capture. While killing nefarious gangsters, unfortunately innocent bystanders have also lost their lives. This fact makes things personal for Grant and increases his desire to get the job done. 

Grant is an unusual protagonist in crime thriller novels. He does not shirk from using any means necessary when it comes to working the cases he is assigned. Quadrago is the perfect counterpart to keep Grant focused on the case at hand all while helping him maintain his humanity. Third Kill is a fabulous read, filled with tension from beginning to end and delivers a riveting conclusion. I am definitely eager for more books in this exciting series.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


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.
