This was a short, free ebook, and was my introduction to Jason Pinter and his protagonist, reporter Henry Parker. It wasn't great, but it was short and free. And it was good enough to convince me to buy two of the full books in telhe series. This particular novella connects the two novels, The Fury and The Darkness.

On it's own, this is short novella is a cheap, one night stand. It's a little fun, but you kinda feel dirty afterwards, like "why'd I waste my time on that?" then you remember it was

This is the fifth installment of the Henry Parker series - a short, free ebook. This book was released the month in between The Fury and The Darkness. I enjoyed it because it gave me the sense that Jason Pinter was talking to the reader for a short period about the series and then it ended with effective suspense for The Darkness.

I am looking forward to see what's ahead for Henry and the other characters as I move toward The Darkness!

This was a short story and to say the least, I would have liked it; but there were some things I couldn’t take. For example, we had a whole chapter about Jack; and for what-he is suppose to be a supporting character. I mean really...How much do we need to know about Jack? I can't say that I will read the rest of the series now, because I can't take the reputation of the characters personalities. There was one good thing about this story and that was the villains, I felt that this aspect of the s ...more

I've never read any Jason Pinter or the "Henry Parker" series before, but after reading this short story, I think I'll add the series to my to-read list. It was easy to fall into the story line and quickly see how the story was building.

This is a very fast pasted crime fiction and it's mainly from the bad guys point of view - which I like because it's not the typical police story (at least this one isn't, I'm not sure about the rest of the series).

It's really fast paced and since it's only 50 pa

The Hunters is quite an interesting book, and seems to have promise as an intriguing suspense novel, but it's way too short. Of course, it's free, so maybe it's considered a marketing investment rather than a real book. It certainly got me interested in Pinter's other works, though I don't have immediate plans to read any of them.

If you like the suspense/thriller genre and want a really quick read, download this book and go for it. It only takes about thirty minutes to read, and it's worth the t

This was a free e-book on kindle and it sounded good so I downloaded it. I haven't read anything of Pinters before so thought I would check him out. It is a very short story and apparently sets up for the next book. The author gives you a list of main characters in his other books and who they are which I found to be very helpful never having read one before. This book leaves you hanging but I am very interested in starting from the beginning of the series and reading a new to me author.

Short - only 6 chapters long and smack bang in the middle of a plot which I had no context of, having not read the other books. That said , nothing of significance happens in the book - why is this even called a "book" in its own right? It should be part 1 of a 5 part book or something. Only consolation - it was free
Feb 05, 2010 Lisa rated it it was ok
I downloaded this book to my Kindle because it was free and I was curious. Overall, I liked the characters and it piqued my interest. I think I would have rated this higher if I had not started so far into the series, but had instead started with the first book. As it was, I felt like I didn't have enough information.

I wouldn't give up on this author just yet, though.
I started this novel knowing it was part of a series and knowing that I had not read any of the others. This novel was very interesting. I will not have to get the rest of the series to understand this novel more. The was a free book at the kindle store. I do not know if there is more to the book but it was excellent reading.

I got this for free for Kindle and I never got past 1/2 way, even with as short as it is. I never got hooked on it at all and couldn't even bring myself to finish it - there was not a pull of interest for it at all.

Good.but did not realize it was a short story
And I had just really gotten into the story when Bam! It's over! It's good but over too quick. Kinda like eating one potato chip!

Short, and designed as an in-betweener. If you haven't read the prequels (I had not) this may not mean much to you (it didn't to me)
