The Mark (Henry Parker Novels)
2 journalers for this copy...
Right as I'm about to die, I realize all the myths are fake. There's no white light at the end of a tunnel. My life isn't flashing before my eyes.
All I can think about is how much I want to live.
I moved to New York City a month ago to become the best journalist the world had ever seen. To find the greatest stories never told. And now here I am—Henry Parker, twenty-four years old and weary beyond rational thought, a bullet one trigger pull from ending my life.
I can't run. Running is all Amanda and I have done for the past seventy-two hours. And I'm tired. Tired of knowing the truth and not being able to tell it.
Five minutes ago I thought I had the story all figured out.
I knew that both of these men—one an FBI agent, the other an assassin—wanted me dead, but for very different reasons.
If I die tonight—more people will die tomorrow.
2007 Mira paperback of the debut thriller. This was on my list of best recent debut thrillers to read.
Edit January 2, 2018: This was very entertaining. It seems a bit silly in parts, and it is easy to tell that the author is quite young. The characters are not very deep. But it's a thriller, and fun to go along for the ride. I currently have this ranked at #902 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
