“… what a book, fast paced, tense and thoroughly enjoyable!”                      

“The mystery, danger and suspense kept me craving for more …

Two strangers are brought together by a beautiful dog. A dog that possesses the clues to a horrifying secret that speaks from the grave. Their harrowing journey of danger and betrayal lurches them headlong into the tangled web of a diabolical plot , and the realization that with unbridled power even the noblest of intentions can corrupt the human conscience and soul. Mule is a fast-paced, thought-provoking thriller, gripping from its very first pages right to its final, utterly stunning, words. 

“This book is THE best thriller I have ever read. From the first chapter to the very end you were on the edge of your seat. I could not put it down and there were many nights I actually laid awake wondering what was going to happen next. Mule was exciting, thrilling and suspenseful. The characters were so interesting and the story line was excellent.”                               Leslie

As the story progresses unexpected twists in the plot make you wonder what the next few pages will bring. I enjoyed the way the story flowed back and forth keeping your interest peaked at all times. The mystery, danger and suspense kept me craving for more making this book difficult to put down.”                                         Sylvie                     

“First book by Peter Parkin and what a book, fast paced, tense and thoroughly enjoyable. No matter what you think the book also makes you think outside the box. Looking forward to his next two books.”

“I read a lot of this type of book, mostly by the big names. Mule was not out of place.

A captivating story with plenty to test you.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the "adventure" which was is an excellent ride-for-the-mind. The twists and turns which take you through some of the never-to-be-forgotten moments in our history often left you saying....whoa...I never saw that coming!! Good job Mr. Parkin....I so look forward to Book #2                                  Wendy.

“Turns out I was looking for another recently published novel that has the word "Mule" in the title, when I accidentally bought this. It started slow with some seemingly far-fetched scenarios, and the characters seemed a little too "perfect-hot" in the beginning. But, boy, did this thing get rolling and what a fun ride overall! It kept me up for a couple of nights till I was done! From a style standpoint it had hints of Dan Brown (mystery twists and turns with decent research) and Clive Cussler (exotic locales and smart-hot-capable characters...including the dog)! I would love to read another Jack Howser novel!”

Can't say enough about this book. …

The character development is exemplary. Very well crafted, realistic and believable, the characters really come alive as the story develops.  The twists and turns will keep you guessing and the interesting facts interwoven in the story will have you searching Google for the truth...

A thoroughly enjoyable read from which you will have trouble tearing yourself away.

“A captivating story…

“… whoa...I never saw that coming!!…”

“… boy, did this thing get rolling and  what a fun ride…”

“Very well crafted, realistic and  believable, the characters really come  alive as the story develops.”

“I loved this book.  It is easy to follow;you don't need to go back 10 chapters to figure out bit characters that rarely show up.

There are lots of twists and unexpected turns that kept me interested and I could not wait to see what was going to happen next.

It is unbelievable to me that this is his first novel.  I can't wait for his next one.”
