Here is today's selection of free and bargain Kindle books!

Killer in Sight (A Tom Lackey Mystery), by Sandra Carrington-Smith. (Still free?)

This is a thrilling murder mystery that uses photography to solve the case. Lots of twists and free today!

"Killer in Sight combines mystery and suspense with connections to the world beyond. The development of fascinating characters by Sandra Carrington-Smith provides further involvement to draw in the reader, who will find this tale of crime investigation and alternate realities a page-turner from beginning to end. You get the best of both worlds, so to speak, as a detective thriller merges with a glimpse into the unknown. " -- Gerald Shaw, Amazon reviewer

When a young woman is found murdered in a public park, it is up to RPD detective Lt. Tom Lackey to locate her killer. With the help of his longtime girlfriend and professional photographer, Kathy Spencer, Lackey unravels a mystery laden with psychosis and unexpected revelations. While Tom is busy following the multiple clues pouring in from different directions, Kathy gets to work to prove her own theory: The last image viewed by the dying person can be lifted from the eyes of the victim to identify the murderer. Using her background in photography and her passion for iridology, Kathy enlists the help of Dr. Greer, a snow-haired medical examiner who allows her to take shots of Tracey Newman’s eyes. Her findings are puzzling, but they are supported by Alexis Howard, the dead girl’s ten-year-old half sister who volunteers information she claims was delivered to her by her imaginary friend Lily. With multiple suspects floating up to the surface and skeletons yanked out of unlikely closets, Tom must rely on his methodical expertise and on Kathy’s insight to find the killer before tragedy strikes again.

The Midget's House (A Circus Story...A Love Story...A Ghost Story), by Anita Bartholomew. (Still free?)

This well reviewed novel is a blend of genres - paranormal, romance, ghost story, and mystery. Grab it while it's free!

"It's so nice to read a well-written novel that also contains fascinating information and is suspenseful besides. The Midget's House is all of this and more. My favorite parts had to do with Lucinda's world in the circus (and the story of her forbidden love), but I also loved the suspense story in the present, and the way the author wove the two parts of the book together. Her research must have been extensive, but it doesn't "show;" everything unfolds very naturally." -- Kathryn Lance, Amazon reviewer

The Midget's House is a tale of two women (one alive, and the other long dead), each mourning lost love and struggling for control of the one place that feels like home.

Marisa Delano is thrilled when she unexpectedly inherits the fairy tale-like cottage on the bay--until she learns that Lucinda Lacey, a sideshow midget who died on the property in 1924, still inhabits it. As Marisa searches for answers about the unwelcome presence in her new home, all the clues lead to one conclusion: on the day Lucinda died, she murdered her lover, circus owner Cyrus Parker.

Alternating between Lucinda's and Marisa's perspectives, The Midget's House takes readers from the carnivals, circuses, and freak shows of the early twentieth century, to the boom-and-bust of today's Florida.

Haunting in every sense of the word, this genre-blending tale will stay with you long after you turn the last page.

I mean it was completely out of control and I think Glenn did a great job comparing it to how dogs are mistreated and caged up. `Underdog' was well written and very informative. It also held your attention very well because it was very intriguing and written brilliantly." -- Chasity B, Amazon reviewer

Marcelo's Secret, by George Vergara. (Still free?)

Jewish parents try to raise a "Catholic" son in 1587 Madrid, Spain. Pick up this historical fiction novel for free today!

"I had the chance to read Marcelo's Secret during our family spring brake vacation. I got hooked into the story from the beginning. (Making it a point to wake up before my kids to be able to enjoy reading it with a nice cup of coffee). I liked how the author presented different characters at the beginning that ended up crossing path through out the story. " -- MC Duprat, Amazon reviewer

It is 1587 in Madrid, Spain, and Marcelo Espinosa is hiding a secret so dangerous that, if it were exposed, it would mean torture and death. Raised as a Catholic by Jewish parents forced to covertly practice their religion, Marcelo has no idea he is about to discover the perils of his true heritage. After his parents are summoned by the Inquisition for heresy, they seek to shield Marcelo from an inevitable death and make secret arrangements for him to enter the monastery. Nineteen-year-old Marcelo is left with no choice. During a stormy night, Marcelo and his guide leave on horseback; it is not long before Marcelo is unwittingly immersed in a life filled with prayer, meditation, plain food, and hard work. But after six months pass, Marcelo receives the horrifying news he has been dreading-his parents have been murdered. Now with his own life in grave danger, Marcelo once again has no choice but to escape. Disguised as a missionary, Marcelo sails to Mexico with two Franciscan priests and the hope that one day he will be free. In this captivating historical tale, Marcelo embarks on a journey through adventure, friendship, love, and danger in a desperate attempt to reconcile with the man he has always wanted to be.

"I got this book to better understand the Kindle Paperwhite features. It was really helpful. Paperwhite uses a "white" ink with a front light. This makes the text print black on a white background which is more natural. The lighting can be controlled so you can even read in the dark. There are all sorts of features explained like the tapping or swiping to change pages, the web browser, google maps, google reader with RSS feeds and more. It was really helpful!" -- Sandy Bose, Amazon reviewer
