Right as Im about to die, I realize all the myths
are fake. Theres no white light at the end of a
tunnel. My life isnt 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 amHenry Parker, twenty-four
years old and weary beyond rational thought, a bullet one
trigger pull from ending my life.
I cant run. Running is all Amanda and I have done for the
past seventy-two hours. And Im 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 menone an FBI agent, the other
an assassinwanted me dead, but for very different reasons.
If I die tonightmore people will die tomorrow.

Debut novelist Pinter turns in a stellar performance, taking to the suspense-thriller field with great confidence and greater promise. Disappointed to find that his new job with the prestigious New York Gazette is all pap pieces and obits, 24-year-old freshman journalist Henry Parker jumps at the chance to work with the paper's top reporter on a where-are-they-now look at “the scum of New York.” Arriving at the apartment of ex-con Luis Guzman with some follow-up questions, Henry finds a scene right out of Goodfellas: a big guy pistol-whipping a terrified Guzman and his wife. Before Henry knows what's happening, the victims turn the table, the assailant is killed, and Henry is left holding the smoking gun. From there, the cub reporter goes on the run—his only ally an unsuspecting NYU coed—while trying figure out how he became wanted by the NYPD, the FBI and the mob. Though some of his situations can strain credibility, Pinter's a wizard at punching out page-turning action, and the voice of his headstrong protagonist is sure to win readers over; his wild ride should thrill any suspense junky.
