From Victor Gischler, the author behind the high-octane, action-packed thriller Stay, comes No Good Deed, a suspenseful novel about how an ordinary man--trying to do the right thing--finds himself in an extraordinary situation.

Francis was running late for work when he found the suitcase and the odd card with an email on it. He knew he shouldn't bother but he couldn't resist.

Now Francis is dodging bullets and doing his best to stay alive, wishing he had never bothered with that suitcase full of clothes.

Praise For No Good Deed: A Thriller

No Good Deed is classic Victor Gischler: Fast, funny, and filled with thrills, with a reluctant hero so engaging you’d think Gischler invented the archetype. These characters may not go unpunished, but reading about it is all reward.” —Sean Doolittle, Barry Award-winning author of The Cleanup

"A secret artificial intelligence algorithm, a suitcase full of surprises, and a boatload of characters who run the gamut from mysterious to downright dangerous. Sprinkle in a little noir, a razor sharp sense of humor, and a bad ass writer named Victor Gischler, and what do you get? A fine, fun novel. I had a great time reading this book. I'd recommend it to anyone." —Scott Pratt, bestselling author of the Joe Dillard series

"I'd call it an edge-of-your seat thriller but it's more: Gischler has set the whole chair on fire." —Matthew Fitzsimmons, bestselling author The Short Drop
