The Fury by Jason Pinter

Am I my brother's keeper?

If I'd known I had a brother, I might have been. But he's dead—shot point-blank in a rat-hole apartment, wasted by hunger and heroin. Stephen Gaines, a man with whom I shared nothing…except a father.

For some reason this stranger who shared my blood came to me for help…and I blew him off thinking he was just some junkie. Now I'm forced to question everything I ever knew…and figure out why this man was murdered in cold blood.

All I can do for Stephen Gaines now is find his killer—and with the help of Amanda Davies uncover the whole, hard truth. If it means tracking down a vicious drug kingpin—who may or may not exist—then so be it….

THRILLER-LOVER More than 1 year ago
The Fury is Jason Pinter's 4th novel about his engaging, sharp witted protagonist, Henry Parker, an investigative reporter for one of the two largest newspapers in NY city. As readers, we have the opportunity to watch Parker, and his equally dynamic girlfriend, Amanda Davies, mature with each book. Without giving away the plot, it involves murders, drugs, violence, loyalty and action. Mr. Pinter, as an author, is also growing and maturing with each new book. He is destined to be ranked along side David Baldacci and Michael Connelly in the not so distant future. His writing is loose ends...with great characters and plots. The best compliment that I can give him is that he is a great STORY TELLER. At times you forget you are reading a book. You slip into a zone where you feel like you are sitting across from Mr. Pinter in your den, with a roaring firing going, and he is telling you a riveting story. He is quickly becoming my favorite author.

Pinter tackles the recent economic crisis that hit Wall Street and shows what could happen to some of the desperate individuals that lost their high paying jobs. Henry Parker seems to stumble into an unknown world of these individuals. After avoiding a crazed "homeless looking" guy, Henry finds out that the homeless guy was murdered and not only that but the guy was his unknown brother. Add to that, is that Henry's father is the chief suspect. Henry decides to use his investigative reporting skills to prove his father's innocence. As the plot thickens, Henry realizes that he should not have avoided his brother as he had something important to tell him regarding the world he had been involved in. It is a world where those desperate men are turned to we;; dressed criminals that carry briefcases and go to work for illicit means. The book is very short and can be finished in one setting. Henry is an intriguing character and there are several references to previous books that makes the reader want to scramble to find them. The story continues in Pinters next book due out soon. Pinter does a masterful job of sucking the reader into buying his succeeding books!

New York Gazette reporter Henry Parker feels good as he leaves the office overlooking Rockefeller center because the obnoxious sports reporter got a well deserved "donkey-whupping". On the street, a homeless man accosts Parker begging to talk with him as he claims the city is burning, but the journalist is in a rush to meet Amanda Davies and besides has images of a donkey whupping on his mind; Henry tells the man to call him tomorrow. Later the police inform Henry the man who approached him earlier is dead, a murder victim; and evidence exists that this Stephen Gaines was Parker's half-brother. They shared the same father though Henry had no idea he even had sibling. Unable to resist and feeling remorse for blowing away his apparent brother, Parker investigates the homicide starting with confronting his father, who the cops suspect is the killer. The latest Henry Parker investigation (see THE STOLEN, THE MARK and GUILTY) is a terrific suspense laden thriller with a personal angst twist to the reporter's current inquiry. The super story line is fast-paced from the onset and never takes a breather. However, THE FURY is part one of a duology with THE DARKNESS coming out in December so fans might want wait for part two and read both one after another. Harriet Klausner

After reading the free eBook "The Hunters" Jason Pinter had me hooked. This is very much an edge of your seat page turner and will leave you wanting more.
