Special edition contains first two thrillers in the Mark Taylor Series: NO GOOD DEED and MARCH INTO HELL

No Good Deed: Book One
Mark Taylor knows his actions scream, guilty–but he was only trying to stop the horrible terrorist attack. Instead, the government labels him an enemy combatant and throws him in the brig with no rights, no trial, and no way to prove his innocence.

Mark’s just a regular guy–a photographer–who finds himself in an extraordinary situation when an antique camera he buys at a dusty Afghanistan bazaar produces photographs of future tragedies. When he discovers that he can prevent the events in the photos from occurring, he can’t live with the guilt if he doesn’t try to stop the tragedies.

When he sees September 11th, his efforts fail when no one listens to his frantic warnings. Then he learns that being an ‘enemy combatant’ means the government can do anything they want to him. Anything at all.

March Into Hell: Book Two
Mark Taylor’s life takes a dark turn when his heroism becomes the subject of a newspaper article. The media attention and a harrowing encounter with the occult while saving a young woman, puts him in the sights of the cult’s ruthless leader who covets the secret to Mark’s power.

Uncomfortable in the public spotlight, Mark suspects he’s being tested by the force behind the camera’s prophetic magic. Battling his own self-doubt, he must maintain the secret or risk certain death.

Luthecker, by Keith Domingue, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars based 46 customer reviews.

Category: Thriller

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

ALEX LUTHECKER lives off of the grid. He prefers the comfort of the night. He avoids the crowded and chaotic daylight hours, because the relentless anxieties of the multitudes overwhelm him. This is because Alex has a rare gift. He is a pattern reader. Patterns in nature, patterns in social groups, patterns in individual behavior, he can recognize them all. With one conversation, he knows all of your secrets. He can tell you exactly who you are. He can tell you exactly how your life is going to end. For Alex, it’s not magic. It’s math.

NICOLE ELLIS works in the energy business. She trades futures in the lifeblood of civilization: crude oil. With the help of her patented pattern recognition software, PHOEBE, she has the uncanny ability to predict trends in oil production and consumption. And at the tender age of twenty-five, she is recognized as one of the best in the business, with the bank account to show for it. For Nicole, who grew up with nothing, the world is hers.

RICHARD BROWN was a highly respected intelligence officer during both Gulf Wars. He oversaw rendition squads, making sure that his interrogators didn’t cross the line into torture, and if they did, that no one would ever be the wiser. The only thing that mattered to the government was that Brown always got his man. His track record of success allowed his move into the private sector, eventually heading the corporate entity known as Coalition Properties, the largest military contractor in U.S. history. For Brown, the commodity he trades and sells is power.

A terrorist attack on a Saudi oil refinery sets the paths of all three on a collision course, an encounter that threatens to upset the balance of power in the world. Alex must learn to forge relationships and become a leader in order to save the lives of not only himself and Nicole, but also those of his loose band of allies, as he becomes one of the most sought after fugitives in history.
