Mark Taylor discovers first hand that no good deed goes unpunished when the old camera he found during a freelance job in an Afghanistan bazaar gives him more than great photos. It triggers dreams of disasters. Tragedies that happen exactly as he envisions them. He learns that not only can he see the future, he can change it. Then the unthinkable happened and everyone ignored his frantic warnings. Thousands die. Suddenly, the Feds are pounding on his door and the name they have for Taylor isn't urban hero. It's enemy combatant. And, it means they can do anything they want to him. Anything at all.

I found recorded books as we prepared to drive from Texas to Colorado and back. Since then I dont run into things when reading,
Suspenseful, Frightening, and Entertaining
The torture scenes were remarkably vivid
I liked it when the two parts of the story joined as one.
The CIA Torture scenes were believeable and scary as hell. Daniel Penz's performance brought each character to life in a vivid way.
The gimmick (no spolier alert here) was trite at first, but it grew on me until I was really happy for it. Again, I cannot say enough about Mr. Penz's performance. He is a remarkably talented performer
Yes, once the story is wonderfully set in your mind; it is hard to stop at just the next chapter.
when the protagonist is given the chance to write down what will happen to him if no one stops the interrogator.
His ability to differentiate the characters. The ease of which he would switch from one to the other; I haven't experienced the range of pitch, tones and amplitude as I did with this book read.
When the protagonist was given a second chance.
I enjoyed the writing style and how the narrator was able to project the story.
This author has written a fast-paced, tightly-plotted book that I found highly entertaining. The torture scenes were disturbing, but they were integral to the story. Take a large dose of suspense, add some thrills and chills, a few suspected terrorists, a too-powerful and paranoid government, then weave in a bit of romance, and what do you have: NO GOOD DEED.
The story was not bad. Although it was a little long and boring in spots.
The narrator was good except when he would whisper he would whisper so quietly that I couldn't understand what he was saying. I would turn volume up only to be blown away when his voice became louder.
I enjoyed both the story and the narration, looking forward to the next in the series. I really felt for the character and his circumstances. Also enjoyed the setting of the story in Chicago, very familiar with the area and a nice change of pace from the typical setting of New York.
Yes! His ability to switch between characters was wonderful. I felt I could identify nationalities and picture the players vividly.
Yes. The book was descriptive and gave enough detail where you could visualize the settings (maybe too much in some cases) and put yourself in the scene.
