The Guilty (Henry Parker #2)
As I lie in bed with Amanda, ignoring another late-night call from my ex, a shot rings out in the New York night and a beautiful starlet dies outside the city's most popular nightclub. This is the kind of story I was born to chasebut I never dreamed this story began over a hundred years ago.…

Incredible and darn near unputdownable! I really enjoy the characters in the series and the new ones that pop up. Lots of action and suspense. Pinter, the author, really pulls you into Henry’s world and it stays in your mind long after the novel is finished.
Some may find the plot a little ‘cheesy’, and while I didn’t find it the most original, it’s how it played out that was the fascinating part. Like a reporter hitting the ground running, you’re the reader that’s sucked i ...more
The Guilty could have been very interesting. It was almost decent. The problem is, Pinter repeats the same phrases and sometimes paragraphs or pages worth of text over and over. I found myself just skipping or skimmi ...more

I would have easily given this book a five rating if it had ended the way my mind had pictured the ending. Oh, Jason Pinter, why couldn't you give me my happily ever after? I'm such a hopeless romantic!
Don't get me wrong, the ending does conclude...eh...okay, and I suppose some things are a must ...more
That said, no brains are required when reading this book. It is a "beach read." I've got two history books going right now, and this book was fine for when I wanted to read, but needed something (considerably) les ...more
Still relatively fresh out of J-school but already a hot scribe at the New York Gazette, Henry Parker (from Pinter's The Mark) files another hair-raising story in the Big Bad Apple. This time the juicy journo's on the trail of the Boy, a sharpshooting serial killer who kills his prey using an antique Winchester 1873, the gun that won the West. The first victim is celebrity diva Athena Paradis, and the killer leaves a note quoting a piece of Henry's. Henry's research revea...more
Cerita di buku kedua ini tentang penembakan beruntun yang dilakukan menggunakan senapan Winchester... (Do not ask me what kind of gun Winchester is) tapi, di setiap penembakan, si penembak pasti meninggalkan satu catatan yang bikin Henry Parker gerah dan bertekad buat nuntasin misteri ini.

This novel has a historical depth to it that is very satisfying--a mystery within a mystery that takes the reader back to the days of outlaws and gunmen. It begs the reader to consider the true definition of a hero and takes us on a high-speed journey from NYC to the wild west and back again.
Pinter continues to unfold his characters in endearing, and sometimes painful ways. We see both their heroism and their breaking point. I loved Henry's development ...more
In any case, this book took a well known American Legend and turned it inside out, which I found refreshing. Not many authors would have dared to, even in fiction, mess with an American Legend lik that. A must read!
