Just weeks before Christmas, Marissa Carvajal wakes up naked and soaked in blood, a billionaire's corpse next to her in bed. She has no memory of the night before, no memory of his murder. And she's agonizing over the horrible possibility that she killed the man.
Jack Tyrrell, former Green Beret and U.S. Marshal, and Harry Mitchum, Tyrrell's guardian angel, will do whatever they can to save her, racing against the NYPD, a private security force the size of a small army, and a group of lethal, Chinese spies ? all of whom want to catch Marissa and send her to prison. Or worse.
A gorgeous, troubled woman, a dead billionaire, action, high tech, and national security combine with questions of free will and moral responsibility to give this thriller a spiritual thrust.
"Had Philip K. Dick channeled Charles Dickens, Jack Tyrrell is the character he would have created. A clever mix of A Christmas Carol and a stylish modern thriller, it's a good read for lovers of either genre. Dark Mirage is action-packed yet soulful, traditional yet highly original, it's a well-balanced, enjoyable opus that leaves readers wanting more Tyrrell stories."

A great read. Dark Mirage is a clever thriller that loosely borrows a concept from Dickens' A Christmas Carol and is written in a unique style that reminds me somewhat of Nelson DeMille. The writing is brisk and clear, and mixes humor with danger and leaves the reader wanting more from the author. Geoff Loftus has created an intriguing character in Jack Tyrell and I, for one, can't want to read his next adventure.
