First Shot (Grant Fletcher #1)

FIRST SHOT                                                   JOHN RYDER

Twenty-four-year-old Lila has disappeared without a trace. It’s the kind of case that ex-military loner Grant Fletcher would normally be happy to take on—if someone had the money to pay him. But this one he’s doing for free. This one’s personal.

Fletcher owes his life to Lila’s father, from that time in Afghanistan he’d like to forget. 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 called Daversville, in rural Georgia. A place—Fletcher discovers as he checks into the only motel—where folks are proud to keep themselves to themselves, and almost all the business comes from the giant sawmill that looms large over the town.

Before he’s even started looking for Lila, Fletcher finds trouble. And discovers that his friend’s daughter wasn’t the first girl to go missing in Daversville. Not the first by far.

Then the last person to have seen Lila before she disappeared is murdered. With Fletcher on the scene when her body is found, he becomes the local deputy’s only suspect, leaving him no choice but to go on the run. Because he knows someone’s abducting girls in this town. And he also knows he’s the only one who can find them…


This book opens with Lila disappearing from a diner after eating. Her boyfriend was unable to find any trace of her only has what the waitress told him which was “your woman is in danger you need to get her and leave”, he was too late. Now Grant Fletcher has come into town, he owes Lila’s father his life and he is repaying it by looking for her. Well, his mission is to find her and he will not be discouraged.
Who would think that this small town in Georgia would be the cause of the trouble? Daversville is just that though trouble and Fletcher finds it. A former Royal Marine does not need to go looking for it, it comes to him. Even when F.B.I. agent Zoey Quadrado comes to town after noticing the trend of missing women she is looking at him as well.
She will come around and see that he is not part of the problem but one trying to create a solution. This new book is a fast read with action from beginning to end. A very good story that will keep you entertained. I liked everything about this book and especially Fletcher. Very much worth the read. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at
