Book Review: No Good Deed by M. P. McDonald (Book one of the Mark Taylor series)

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Thriller

Age Recommended: 15 and up

This book was definitely one of the better mysteries that I have read recently. It appealed to me because this wasn’t your typical ‘who done it’ murder mystery.

No good deed


Mark Taylor is a photographer, and he’s pretty good at it. It’s a normal job for a normal person, except for one thing. Mark has a special camera that shows him glimpses of the future, and the following night, he has a dream about exactly what will happen. And then it’s up to him to change it.

Mark’s pretty good at making up stories to explain his presence after he saves people, but one day when he saves a baby from drowning, he is arrested by the FBI and transferred to a secure location.

After that, he is tortured for a year with no rights and no lawyers because one of his friends told the CIA that Mark was involved with the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t help Mark’s case that his camera had shown him pictures of 9/11 attack the previous night and that Mark had spent the entire next morning attempting to warn government agencies.

They believe that Mark was working with the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks and will not stop torturing him until he gives them the information that they want. Now, Mark is still in CIA custody with no hope of getting out.

Will he be able to prove his innocence?
