March 2012 Indie Next List


“This story will keep you up and give you nightmares, but you will be hooked from page one. Smith has added a surprising new element to the thriller genre with the introduction of his protagonist, a professional torturer, who is himself a tortured individual. Geiger has three rules, one of which is, he doesn't interrogate children. So when he ends up with a 12-year-old boy he is supposed to extract information from, Geiger changes all of the rules. Geiger is an extremely fascinating character whom you want to hate, but can't. A compelling and unique thriller.”
— Nancy McFarlane, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC

Description


Geiger has a gift: he knows a lie the instant he hears it. Unlike most of his competitors, Geiger rarely sheds blood--and he never works with children. So when his partner, former journalist Harry Boddicker, unwittingly brings in a client who insists that Geiger interrogate a 12-year-old boy, Geiger responds instinctively.

About the Author


Mark Allen Smith is a successful television and documentary film producer and screenwriter. "The Inquisitor," featuring the controversial hero known only as Geiger, is his first novel. Mark's experience investigating features for the acclaimed ABC-TV news magazine program, "20/20," planted the seed for his debut thriller when he was involved with a story dating from the 1970s about the remarkably brutal torture and murder of a 17-year-old in Paraguay, the last true dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. He was further inspired to action by the shocking death of Lisa Steinberg at the abusive hands of her adoptive father; this event uncorked ongoing interest in the corrosive effect of physical and psychological pressure on children and other innocents. His journey of research convinced him that the novel was his best way to bring his story to the largest possible audience. A long-time resident of Westchester County, Mark Allen Smith now lives in New York City's Harlem with his wife, Cathy, and a blended family of six children. He is presently working on the sequel to "The Inquisitor," also featuring Geiger.
