Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.

Review by Library Journal (2007-04-15)

From the opening sentence to the exhilarating conclusion, Pinter's debut thriller gets the reader's heart racing. Taking a dream job as a reporter for a major New York newspaper, Henry Parker plunges into a nightmare when an interview goes wrong and a stranger is killed. On the run from the police, the FBI, and the mob, Parker has gone from uncovering dirt to becoming the story. With nowhere to run or hide and trying to find a package that everyone believes he possesses, can Parker survive long enough to stay off of the obituary page? Pinter clearly reads thrillers, and he is able to use the best aspects of the genre to his advantage. With more Parker novels on the horizon, Pinter is clearly one to watch. For all popular fiction collections.

[Pinter is an editor at St. Martin's Press and a founding member of Killer Year; see the Q&A with Pinter in "The Killing Game" on p. 39.--Ed.] - Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L.

Book description

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.
