Mark Taylor discovers first hand that no good deed goes unpunished when the old camera bought in an Afghanistan bazaar gives him more than great photos. It triggers dreams of disasters. 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.
This is one of those books that was so intense I was physically ill while reading. I couldn't put it down because I had to know what happened next--how was Mark going to prove his innocence, etc. It was a great read and I'm looking forward to reading more books in the series.
Things that held me captive--the physical and psychological torture. Mark was a good guy trying to do the right thing and yet the government thinks he's the worst of the worst terrorists known to the country. How does that happen?
It's truly frightening to think something like this could happen when all you have to defend yourself is your word.
I give No Good Deed by M.P. McDonald a solid 4.5.
