Product Description

Product Description

Prequel in the Mark Taylor Series of bestselling thrillers

When Mark Taylor witnesses the drowning of a little girl whose death appeared to him in a photo taken the day before, he discovers that the camera he found in an Afghan bazaar has a strange and unique ability—it produces photographs of tragedies yet to happen.Tragedies that he is driven to prevent.

Wary of his new super-hero like power to change the future, Mark keeps the camera a secret--even when it means risking his own life. But with only 24 hours to act, what if he fails to prevent the greatest tragedy his country has ever experienced?

3.0 out of 5 stars A Tad Short 21 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is a great idea although this book ended at only 77% and was relatively short anyway. The remainder was excerpts of more of the series along with differing chapters in Book 1. Not sure really why the author's messing about like this with it. To me, it's making it all needlessly convoluted and she shouldn't do it !!
There were quite a few mistakes in it which also lost it another star for me. Lost words from sentences occurred a lot like a/the, lightning was spelt lightening but then correctly spelt on the next page which I thought careless along with thorough being used when through was meant to be. There were missed apostrophes too-always an e-book staple, it seems.
At one point Jessie phones Mark then a while later decided that to call him she could probably find him in the phonebook....odd.
I'll definitely try out book one after this, though, to see what happens, but I'll take it as I've downloaded and not mess about with differing versions !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Genesis 27 Oct 2012
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
If you've read the entire Mark Taylor series to date, starting with No Good Deed through March into Hell and most recently Deeds of Mercy, you have a vague idea of Mark's back-story. We know Mark purchased his magical camera from an Afghani bazaar while he and his friend Mohammed (or Mo) were taking photographs and doing additional research for a book Mo planned to write. We're given hints about the eventual deterioration of Mark's relationship with Mo in Deeds of Mercy, yet when the series starts with No Good Deed, it may seem that we're coming in mid-story.

Genesis fills in those gaps, giving us a chance to become better acquainted with Mark and his story before the camera turned his life upside down. A must read for current Mark Taylor fans, taking us up to a post-9/11 timeframe just before the start of No Good Deed. Also, a viable introduction to Mark's tale for those who prefer their stories be told chronologically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story 10 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Building slowly but getting more and more tension worked up very quickly! I thoroughly enjoyed this one and will get the next instalment mainly because I can't wait to see what happens to Mark. I hope m.p. doesn't give up on this genre as his characters are well written and the story is excellent. I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genesis 4 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read No Good Deed and March Into Hell. This probably comes in at the mid-point, better than March Into Hell, but not as good as No Good Deed. I did very much enjoy the back story on Mark Taylor, the protagonist from No Good Deed. As a matter of fact, reading Genesis has made me want to go back and reread No Good Deed. For those who've read any of the other books on the series, this is a great book to read to learn about Mark's history. For those who haven't, this would be the perfect place to start. This whole series does a wonderful job of questioning whether Mark's camera is a gift, or a curse.
