Dark Mirage, a Jack Tyrrell Novel by Geoff Loftus

Just weeks before Christmas, Marissa Carvajal wakes up naked and soaked in blood, a billionaire's corpse next to her in bed. She has no memory of the night before, no memory of his murder. And she’s agonizing over the horrible possibility that she killed the man.

Jack Tyrrell, former Green Beret and U.S. Marshal, and Harry Mitchum, Tyrrell's guardian angel, will do whatever they can to save her, racing against the NYPD, a private security force the size of a small army, and a group of lethal, Chinese spies ― all of whom want to catch Marissa and send her to prison. Or worse.

A gorgeous, troubled woman, a dead billionaire, action, high tech, and national security combine with questions of free will and moral responsibility to give this thriller a spiritual thrust.

Dark Mirage by Geoff Loftus

"Had Philip K. Dick channeled Charles Dickens, Jack Tyrrell is the character he would have created. A clever mix of A Christmas Carol and a stylish modern thriller, it's a good read for lovers of either genre. Dark Mirage is action-packed yet soulful, traditional yet highly original, it's a well-balanced, enjoyable opus that leaves
readers wanting more Tyrrell stories."
- Theodore George, author of The Deadly Homecoming and The Murders on the Square.

Murderous Spirit by Geoff Loftus

"Can one author combine a thriller, a romance and a ghost story? Geoff Loftus does so admirably in his fast-paced, well written and engrossing new novel about a man given a second chance from a wholly unexpected source:
his dead wife, whose murder he holds himself responsible for.
Let this one-of-a-kind story teach you something about love, forgiveness and even faith."

James Martin, SJ, bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, A Jesuit Off-Broadway and The Abbey.

Jack Tyrrell was a burn out. A former Green Beret and U.S. Marshal, he's become a drunken loser who, once upon a time, accepted a bribe and was shot by the people who bribed him. Tyrrell survived the shooting. His wife, Maggie, did not.

Five years after her death, Maggie appears to him as a ghost and offers him a chance to make things right. She introduces Tyrrell to Harry, who may literally be heaven-sent. Tyrrell, with Harry working as his case manager, sets out
to help a veteran who's suffering from PTSD and has assassinated a pair of Wall Street CEOs.

Action, murdered Wall Street titans, the Russian mafia, and a beautiful woman mix with questions
regarding free will and what constitutes moral behavior to give this thriller a spiritual edge.

Tyrrell's story is a mix of Charles Dickens, Philip K. Dick and thriller
told by a sad, yet funny narrator — it's entertaining and spiritually engaging.

THE REVIEWS ARE IN (from AMAZON):

3 out of 5 stars
Fast paced and exciting
By ygc9245 on February 4, 2016
Fast paced and tense. Loftus's knowledge of New York City and how to transit the town is impressive. A touch of Dickens and his 'heavenly guide' added some light to an otherwise tough story about love, guilt and forgiveness. Is this the beginning of a series? I will look for the next Jack Tyrell story!

5 out of 5 stars
Murderous Spirit is a great read
By Thomas J. Galligan on February 24, 2016
I read a lot. I mean, really I read a lot. There are three hundred books on my Kindle and the list is growing. This book just came out by Geoff Loftus,the novel is called Murderous Spirit, and I just now finished reading it. He hit a home run with this book! It is very interesting and seriously entertaining. I don't think I have ever recommended a book on the internet before, but I am now. This book is a really great read. I enjoyed it very much and know you will too.

In addition to writing a good action mystery, there is a spiritual element that is fascinating. Read it and see.
