      Excellent debut novel!I saw The Guilty on the shelf at Coles when it came out and read the synopsis. It sounded intriguing. Plus, the quotes from authors I’ve read helped as well, so I picked it up. I hadn’t realized it was the second book, so I picked up the first, The Mark. Am I ever glad I did!And I had to agree with the reviews. The book is a gripping page-turner and I had a hard time putting it down. I felt bad for Henry, being stuck in the position he was in. While most of us would tur [...]

      Buying a book just because it is cheap due to some offer was a huge gamble for me but the good news is I won! It was a huge surprise when the book turned out to be a smooth crime thriller as promised in its catchy premise - "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"!Henry Parker is a newbie journalist waiting for a snoop to catch. One night he tries to help a man form being physically abused [...]

      The book for review is “The Mark” by Jason Pinter. The genre is action, adventure and a bit of drama.Our main character, Henry Parker, is a journalist. He has just landed his dream job at the New York Gazette. Not only is it his place of employment but his idol works there, Jack O’Donnell. A man who was a legend in his own mind and others but it was well-earned. In a short time of working Henry gets a break, to work with Jack. All Henry has to do is get an interview from a source that Jack [...]

    4. Donna Brown on said:

      This is Pinter's first novel and it's a fair first attempt. The main character is a young, idealistic reporter who ends up running for his freedom and his life after shooting a cop. I won't give too much away but this is a reasonably good story with some twists, turns and - of course - romance.Two things made it difficult for me to rate this more highly. Firstly, the main character Henry didn't seem very likeable to me. A little too arrogant, a little too know-it-all, a little too whiny. Secondl [...]

    5. Tobin Thomas on said:

      An interesting cat and mouse game turned thriller where the whole city of New York wants to hunt down a young journalist who’s pinned into a murder. It has a great start but failed to maintain the thrill element as it progressed. A decent climax followed by some edgy last chapters sums up this one as a one time decent read.

      This slow-starter turned out to be really interesting towards the middle. Though not really my cup of tea, it held my interest for the duration of the pages, though it petered out near the end.Henry Parker lands his dream job as a reporter for one of New York's finest newspapers. Sent on assignment by his idol reporter to the seemingly benign apartment of an ex-convict, Henry's life is turned upside down when he intercepts a deal gone bad.Running for his life, he meets a girl willing to run with [...]

      Great book. Breakneck pace. Henry Parker is the kind of guy you root for and Pinter has done an excellent job putting his rookie reporter in pot after pot of boiling water. The methodic layout of the novel pulls you in and keeps you moving forward, with barely time to catch your breath. I actually gasped out loud several times as characters surprised me always a good sign.The story itself is ratcheted up a notch with the introduction of Amanda. I particularly enjoyed the way her own history was [...]

    9. Amy on said:

      The Mark started off a little bit slowly, but once it took off it didn't let up! The story itself is cliche--mobsters, dirty cops, innocent guy in the wrong place at the wrong time, pretty girl who sees him for who he truly is and aids and abets him We've all seen this story a billion times in theaters or on TV. But I don't care that this story is cliche! The Mark was exciting, blood-pounding, adrenaline-rush reading! The main characters were all sympathetic. I had a really hard time putting The [...]

    10. Lee on said:

      A thriller written by a young author, that happens to be his debut novel. Jason Pinter wrote a page-turner from the get go. A blend of a crime novel, with corruption and journalism thrown in. The reader is really rooting for Henry Parkeren you're hoping he makes it out alive. A great start to the series, which I will definitely be continuing.

    11. Ramon Dearmas on said:

      This book was amazing a fugitve story for sure! I would highly recommend it if you have been reading some slow dribble of a novel and want to spice things up.Great young new author who I will definetly add to my list : < )

    12. Lauren on said:

      The author is my best friend's husband don't just read the book, GO OUT AND BUY A COPY!!I read the book in two daysI could not put it down I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was great!!

    13. Lorna on said:

      Tal vez no fue mi momento para leerlo. En un principio era atrapante y entretenido, pero luego le perdí el hilo y lo abandoné. Cuando intenté retomarlo me aburrió (sí, muy triste!!) así que con lo poco que leí me parece que merece las 3 estrellas, porque es prometedor. Pero honestamente esta es una reseña a cambiar a futuro, o simplemente de paso. Más adelante, tal vez en verano, lo retome y cambie mi opinión.

    14. Jacque on said:

      I started reading this book and was about to give up. The reason is there are so many typos and grammatical errors, like nobody proofed this before publishing. I am not one to give up on a book so I kept reading, trying to ignore the errors. By Chapter 6, I was hooked and couldn't stop reading it. It has a lot of twists and turns and really kept my interest. If you can overlook the errors, this is a good read.

    15. Leslea on said:

      I was happy to find out this was the first in a series as I really liked the character of Henry Parker.Finally getting his dream job as a reporter on a New York newspaper, Henry thinks life is perfect, but when a simple interview with what seems to be a sweet old couple goes horribly wrong he has to run for his life and try to clear his name. Clever writing, fast paced and page turning.

      "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."Do you need a better first sentence? It's a great escape read.

    17. Anna on said:

      Friend gave it to me to read we had our own "book club". I jumped into it and did! Would be a great read for the beach The story was great, kept me excited twists and turns I'm wanting to read the next book!

    18. Gwendolyn Harris on said:

      In the line of fireAction and suspense from the beginning chapter to end of story. This book is a page turner for sure. I can see why he won so many awards. I will be following his work!!!! Two thumbs up! This book was movie material.

    19. Becky Kincaid on said:

      This book was fun, fast, and exciting. Once I got into it I had to finish it. It's a great ride with curves and bumps. I'm now a fan of Jason Printer and getting ready to start The Fury.

    20. Steve on said:

      First of the series. Started off a little slow, but picked up just before I was going to let it go.

    21. Kathy Starling on said:

      good reading material exceptit could use another editing. too many misplaced words that caused you to stop reading and try to figure out what was suppose to be there.

      634 - 2014Sebelum membaca novel ini, aku sudah pernah membaca novel Jason Pinter lainnya yang juga menampilkan tokoh utama yang sama. Entah kenapa, novel sebelumnya tidak meninggalkan kesan, malah kurating rendah. Kemungkinan besar faktor terjemahannya yang membuat kurang sreg dan malas membacanya.Karenanya, aku tidak punya ekspektasi apa-apa waktu memungut buku ini dari timbunan buku yang belum terbaca. Tapi ternyata buku ini membuatku terus membacanya tanpa jeda sampai selesai. It's hard to pu [...]

      dulu, duluuuuuuuu jaman kuliah dulu, saya suka banget baca buku2 thriller James Patterson. kebanyakan mungkin Alex Cross series. sampai2 lupa buku mana saja yang sudah dibaca dan belum (andai pada saat itu sudah mengenal :D), buku2 itu sama nasibnya dengan buku2 Agatha Christie yang saya baca (lupa yang mana yg sudah/belum dibaca). entah kenapa akhir2 ini kangeeeennn baca buku thriller, setelah sekian lama (ga lama juga sih) lebih sering membaca buku fantasi. waktu main ke kosan teman, kebetula [...]

      The main character is a young, inexperienced reporter who came upon his interview subject being blackmailed by a dirty cop and accidentally killing the latter in a struggle. Since he was a "cop-killer", the city cops are hell-bent in finding him and he was forced to become a fugitive with no money and no one to trust. A paid-assassin was hired to track the reporter and find an item which a mob boss presumed the reporter ran away with after the struggle. Meanwhile, a particular detective who's th [...]

      “Znak” Jasona Pintera jest przygodą, z którą nie można się rozstać od pierwszych jej stron. Uzależniająca, wciągająca i niejako wymuszającą na czytelniku zaangażowanie się w życie głównego bohatera – Henry’ego Parkera. Ci mniej odporni na szczegółowe opisy z krwawych scen muszą nie raz przymknąć oko.Autor stosuje skuteczne narzędzie zainteresowania czytelnika, wrzucając go znienacka w samą scenę napięcia, by następnie razem odkryć historię wstrząsającego z [...]
