Special Forces veteran Mark Tanner’s latest job is protecting New York Turbos quarterback, Troy Decker. When Tanner begins to delve into Decker’s past he finds no record of Decker's high school football career. Is Decker lying about where he came from?
Tanner follows a tantalizing trail across time and distance, to a small cabin nestled deep in the Rockies. Every Thanksgiving, five carefree, teenage friends made a pilgrimage to the cabin. Until nine years ago, when something dark and evil occurred that forever changed their lives. Since then, bad luck and death has followed them. But what does that weekend] have to do with the recent attacks on a famous quarterback?
Fourteen years ago Tanner’s parents were viciously murdered and his younger sister left with a traumatic brain injury. The killer was dubbed "Cupid" by the police. Tanner's current assignment is complicated when Cupid strikes again. His investigation takes him through Cupid’s dark, twisted past to reveal an unspeakable horror.
Tanner must learn the truth. The truth about his parents' deaths, the truth about what happened in the mountain cabin so long ago. But what is the truth? Why did a young girl leave her friends and walk into a blizzard to her death? Why did Cupid’s victims invite him into their homes? And who is behind the attempts on Tanner’s life?
The truth can set you free. But Tanner discovers it can also kill. In an explosive finale, the truth reaches out from beyond the grave and Tanner must use every survival instinct he has to fight the deadly embrace of a truth that reaches out beyond the grave.

About the Author

With a passion for adventure and the outdoors, most of Michael Beck’s life has been devoted to pursuing his love of extreme sports. He is a qualified whitewater instructor and has spent many years exploring Australia’s wild, remote rivers. His love of photography and writing led him to have some of these exploits published. He has represented his country in Inline Hockey, is an expert skier and has a bachelor of education degree.
Ever since he left home at 18 to travel around Australia with nothing but $200 and thirty cans of spaghetti in the trunk of his old HR Holden, Michael has done things slightly different. He worked in a litany of odd jobs such as bridge builder, chicken catcher, circus hand and bartender, all of which have provided fodder for his creative mind. Since he was a child he has been an omnivorous reader and always dreamt of writing a novel, but could never sit still long enough to make it happen.
Having seven children in eleven years along the way didn’t help. Working full time whilst raising six boys and one girl is a story in itself. But, somehow, between the bedtime bedlam and birthday parties he completed his first novel. Miracles do happen. Pump Fake is his third novel after Shifter and Killpoint.
Michael Beck resides in Victoria, Australia, with his wife and tribe.
