I've never heard of Jason Pinter before but I am so happy to have found him! This is such a good book, written in the style of Brad Parks or Rick Mofina. Henry Parker, the main character is a wannabe investigative reporter.
Henry is trying to become a front page reporter after landing a job with the Gazette in NYC. When a senior reporter decides to give him a chance, Henry jumps on it.
Unfortunately Henry unwittingly stumbles into bedlam. A man is beating the two people Henry had just interviewed, he had left but came back with a few more questions. The man is demanding something from them. Henry can't just walk away, so he and this thug struggle , a gun goes off and the man is dead. He just so happens to be a cop. The next day Henry's face is on the front page with the legend "COP KILLER ".
The police are after him, the mob is after him when the beaten man says that Henry took what the cop was after.
This all happens in the very beginning of the book.
Henry cons a young law student into giving him a ride out of NYC but it backfires and the young woman becomes a second target. From here on it becomes a race to find out the truth and to save their own lives.
Adam Verner does an outstanding job narrating.
With kindle unlimited this book was $7.49.
The book is excellent and has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

I love this novel!

Read Audible listener Shelley's review; I agree totally with her take. I want to discuss more this author and this series which are new to me.

The Mark, released in 2007, was the first novel by author Jason Pinter and it is Book 1 in the six novel (plus one novella) Henry Parker series. Yet, I had never heard of him. The first two novels in the series were recently released in audio format (as was the standalone The Castle by Jason Pinter). My hope is that all of Pinter's suspense thriller novels will be released soon in audio format.

The Mark has my highest possible recommendation.
