Read THE MARK--for free!!!

Through August 5th, you can read THE MARK online--for free! Click the "Browse this Book" link below to read the novel that's been nominated for the Barry award, the Strand Critics award and the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice award--absolutely free. BONUS: scroll down to see how you can personally be thanked in a future Henry Parker novel!

Right as I’m about to die, I realize all the myths are fake. There’s no white light at the end of the 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.


And if you like what you read, check out the other books in the critically acclaimed Henry Parker series:

"Parker is a captivating and complex protagonist." --Publishers Weekly











"A brilliantly conceived, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride." --Chicago Tribune











Spread the word and be thanked for your efforts!

I want as many people as possible to read THE MARK for free. And I want readers to know how much I appreciate their efforts.

If you link to the free offer or embed the widget on your website/blog, or email five friends alerting them to this free read (and cc or bcc me at jason@jasonpinter.com on the email), you'll be personally thanked in the acknowledgments section of a Henry Parker novel to be released in 2009. So to reiterate, there are two ways to be thanked:

1) Email five friends about this free read (with a link to www.jasonpinter.com or jasonpinter.blogspot.com). Make sure to cc/bcc me at jason@jasonpinter.com on the email (this is only so I can keep track, the emails will not be used for anything nefarious).

2) Link to www.jasonpinter.com or embed the "Browse the Book" widget on your blog or website. Click the 'Add to your site' link on the widget for the html code.

Then see your name in the acknowledgments page of a 2009 Henry Parker novel.

Please pass this along to friends, family, and anyone you know who's looking for a good summer read. And I sincerely hope you enjoy the first Henry Parker novel.
Jason Pinter

P.S.  A very sincere thanks to my publisher for making this happen.

Well I just came across this and I intend to, as soon as I finish alerting to, this, the more important of the responses (kidding) you've thus far received.
Here's the self serving part....I am well into writing my first novel (yea yea, move along, nothin to see here)and have been lurking around writers websites more then is healthy probably for the past year. I read 5 plus books per week and don't have a clue where I get the time. Your Parker fellow is indeed one of the better protagonists I've encountered in fiction.
Thanks for the chance to read along on line. Maybe I can secret away some downtime on the job if you know what I mean.
I am enjoying Stolen very much.
Regards,

Hey, Jason. I'm doing a post on my blog that consolidates all my posts from the past 9 months pointing to free ebooks, stories, and writing. here it is waaaay past 8/5, and your widget still allows people to read The Man in Black for FREE.

I don't want to take income away from you, so please let me know (preferably via mikecane02 -at- yahoo.com) if I should NOT include that link. Thanks.
