Overview

Mark Forester buried himself in the back country of Colorado to be away from people and their issues that kept flooding him with unwelcome intrusion into his life, often paralyzing him. He fought to keep his sanity in this onslaught. Yet when the pain of a girl in Connecticut burst on him, he had to do something to help. In the dead of night, using his neighbor's phone, he called the girl's parents to warn them of her peril. That started a desperate race to avert disaster, and disbelief, was only one of the things he had to fight. Yet in the process of helping, he found new friends and a fresh sense of self.

BIO: Nearing retirement, I now have more time to devote to writing (and if I don’t, I squeeze the day until there is a space/time to crawl into). Over the past 15 years, I have worked on 15 books, three of which (of the Dreamcast series) are self-published.
My website, http://www.PaulTelegdi.ca gives a full account of my life and accomplishments, which I shall not repeat here.
The thumbnail version: I was born in Hungary; when young immigrated to Canada with my family, attended University of Waterloo, Ontario, where I met my wife. Spent years in West Germany where my wife was studying music while I was learning German. Returning to Canada, we ended up on a farm in Ontario with pets. Long-time married, I boast of three sons with talent and personality.
Presently I am office manager of my wife’s private practice of psychology. I like kayaking and windsurfing. I belong to a number of writers’ groups, and often choose writing over sleeping. eBooks are an exciting new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to the wider exposure.
My motto: Want a better life? Then write it!

I really enjoyed this book. Different than most mysteries i have read. Kind of an unusual twist at end.

I read about 10 pages of this book before giving up on it. I was really looking forward to the story, it sounded really promising. However there seemed to be several typos per page and they were jarring enough to make me give up on the story.

A young man plagued by randomly occurring mental flashes from other people tunes in on an accident victim halfway across the country, and is joined in a quest to aid her by an unlikely pair of neighbors, trying to convince the victim's family that she is really in trouble. A very interesting and well-written read, a spellbinding story complete with a set of tense final moments. Good for suspense fans, especially for those that remain open-minded.

I don't usually like "paranormal" reading. I did not know this was what this book was about. To my surprise, I enjoyed the book. Well written and kept my interest.

Good read. A little rough around the edges but worth it.

This was a 200 page novel about a pair of para- normal sensitives trying to find a missing woman. It was not very well written as the author does not know how to write a paragraph without messing up past, present and future tenses. He also does not know that loose means not tight and lose means misssing. There are a lot of other mistakes such as missing words and punctuation. I saw another reviewer's remark that this author has other books available, I hope he has edited those. This was not a bad short story. I would have been glad to rate it higher if the editing had been better. The mistakes were just too glaring and numerous. There is sex, violence and cursing. This para-normal mystery would be recommmended for male and female readers age 18 and up. AD
