May 2008 Debut of the Month.
The first in a series featuring American journalist Henry Parker, an innocent caught up in murder and hunted by both the police and some very unpleasant “baddies”. Aided and abetted by a “good woman” and battling his way through police corruption, revenge and an assassin with psychological problems, he (obviously) wins the day. I am making this sound very glib but actually it is a cut-above the norm in this area and a good start to what should develop into a terrific series. The next comes in January 2009.
Comparison: Harlan Coben, James Patterson, Simon Kernick

Only 24, Henry Parker has come to New York to become the best journalist the world has ever seen.
When he gets his first real assignment, Henry seems destined for greatness. But he never imagined he would become the story, and that the story could cost him his life...
In 24 hours, Henry Parker will be accused of a brutal murder. In 48 hours, he'll be on the run from FBI agents who want nothing more than to watch him die. And in 72 hours, Henry will uncover a secret that can destroy a city...or control it.
