THE MARK (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: Henry Parker is a young newspaper reporter who's living his dream, working in the greatest city in the world, and hoping to bring some integrity back to an industry that's been rocked by scandal in recent years. His boss, Wallace Preston, editor-in-chief of the New York Gazette, sees Henry as journalism's new blood. A young man with pride, passion and integrity. A new foundation to build on. After getting his feet wet with undemanding reportage, Henry is finally given the chance to collaborate on a real story alongside his boyhood idol, venerated newsman Jack O'Donnell. But when Henry knocks on an interviewee's door only to find two people beaten and a gun thrust in his face, a brave decision results in murder. And suddenly Henry is on the run for his life, finding he's accused of the very same crimes he swore to uncover. In 24 hours, Henry Parker will be wanted across state lines, his only hope a bold woman who must be shielded from the truth. In 48 hours, Henry will be hunted by two cops out for revenge, and a ruthless killer whose own motive for vengeance is more personal than anything Henry could fathom. And in 48 hours Henry will discover a secret that could destroy a city ... or control it.

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Jason. You seem like an interesting person and a prolific author as well. Feel free to tell me a little bit about yourself. As for me, I'm an actor/singer/songwriter who has just turned author. When you have a moment, please check out my 27 CDs as well as the awesome reviews I've received from Amazon.com regarding my first novel, FORBIDDEN STEPS.


Have an awesome week and thanks again, Ed

Ruth Khanna Thanks for adding me to your friends list! Would love feedback on my first novel Paper Boats, if you would like to read it. It's available on amazon.com

Shadonna Thanks for the add. Have a great weekend!

Roger Cottrell Hi Jason,
Always great to meet a fellow writer and I'd been planning to check out your Henry Parker novels even before I found you on this site. I write a lot of retrospective crime fiction, myself, in the tradition of Ellroy but more especially of Jake Arnott and David Peace (being as I'm British). HOLLYWOOD BOWL is self published and available on http://www.lulu.com/content/4649341 I have a pucker publisher for ENEMY WITHIN which comes out in April. This is a retrospective crime thriller set in Yorkshire, during the miners strike. My current novel (that I'm editing this weekend) takes the black cop character from Enemy Within and returns him to Birmingham, in a struggle to nail a Yardie boss. This finds him bringing in a young kid from Jamaica to infiltrate the Voodoo posse gang, then trying to set up a crime and getting into all types of trouble. Major influences include Chester Himes. I'm going to join the Author's Society and Hardcore Crime groups even before I have my first coffee this Sunday morning.

Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Jason and thank you for adding me. I love the exerpt from "The Mark"....already grabbed my attention. I love mysteries! I know you're a very busy man, but if you have the time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too!
