A terrible car accident changes Mike's life in unexpected ways. This highly-praised thriller from master of the genre Mark Tufo has over 60 five-star reviews - and is free today.
"This was a haunting story of a young man's life following a horrific car crash. I can't really describe the story without giving too much away. The story is so deep and twisted that it reminds me of a Stephen King novel. The characters are complex and the story will remain with me for a very long time. Tufo is definitely one to watch. Although I've enjoyed his other books, this one truly showcases his talent for spinning stories that are scary, sad and beautiful. How many writers can do that?" -- Amazon reviewer

The Eden Plague: Book 1 (Plague Wars), by David VanDyke. (Still $0.99?)
This highly-rated thriller is the first book in the Plague Wars series. 99 cents today!
"I expected this action/adventure to be military/black ops action, which it presents very believably. I also anticipated a bit of an 'apocalypse' twist, which it is, in a way, though in more end of the world as we know it rather than end of the world.
Well developed characters, a new scientific discovery vaguely along the lines of Jurassic Park and others of that type, with nanobot technology, carried along by excellent presentation of the usual black ops/military type action. Good character development which included the changes in mindsets triggered by exposure to the Plague.
A definite twist at the end which leaves me wondering just where the author tends to go with the plotline, which could develop in an interesting way. " -- Amazon reviewer
302 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 24 reviews.
Irreparable Harm (Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller No. 1), by Melissa F. Miller. (Still $3.99?)
A top-notch legal thriller with over 150 five-star reviews! Get this Sasha McCandless thriller for $3.99.
"What a riveting page turning read. I loved Sasha's character so is believable. This mystery thriller is one of the best books I have read for 2011. Melissa knows the legal system extremely well and it shows through out the book. The good and the bad people were underestimating Sasha at every turn. It was nice to see for a change.
I also like the technology side of it. The old saying, "There is an app for that" is so true. You never know what is going to happen next.
All the turns and twists and all the characters are great. This book is defiantly a book to read." -- Amazon reviewer
416 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 271 reviews.
KILLER IN A BOX (Detective DiPino Thriller), by David Thayer. (Still $0.99?)
The first book in the Detective DiPino series, this thriller follows DePino as he investigates a violent murder - and discovers shocking truths about his own wife's murder.
"After reading the title, I imagined that the killer would be found in a box, maybe in a morgue or in a trap of his own making. I was pleasantly surprised that this killer in a box referred to something else entirely. The box, as it turned out, was a perimeter with police all around forming a "box" where the suspect was believed to be hiding.
But, then, why was our hero sent into the box alone? Were there police who wanted him dead? If so, why?
Bit by bit the answers to my questions began to be revealed, only to add more questions: What had any of this to do with his wife's hit-and-run murder? Or did it have anything to do with it? And: Who could be trusted to give him the truth? Was there no one, not even his own partner?
The questions kept building, and I couldn't help but read for more answers. This book is definitely a page-turner, action-packed mystery that kept me reading long after my husband went to bed.
I am delighted to give it a solid four stars." -- Amazon reviewer
239 pages, with a 3.6-star rating from 5 reviews.
The Concrete Kiss, by David Grace. (Still $4.95?)
A highly-rated thriller from David Grace! $4.95.
"The concrete kiss is a fast moving, adrenalin dripping thriller. There are plenty of thrillers in the market these days; but few as good as this one. What sets this one apart is its clever and intriguing plot, with a number of compelling characters in it, and with some thoroughly mean ( and I mean REALLY mean) baddies to contend with.
The author skillfully uses these basic ingredients to create one of the best novels in the thriller genre that I have read. And the writing style of the author really is magnetic, drawing you in. This, and the fast moving, action packed nature of the story keep you turning page after page." -- Amazon reviewer
308 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 14 reviews.
Tortured Memory (Brier Hospital Series), by Lawrence Gold. (Still $4.99?)
Get this highly-rated, full-length mystery / thriller!
"Lawrence Gold's latest is an enthralling story about a woman who had been sexually abused by her father and then who became a psychiatrist with a special interest in treating with abused girls. However, she is not very stable herself, and when some of her juvenile female patients are victimized by a sexual predator/serial killer, she loses her equilibrium and ends up in Brier Hospital's psychiatric ward. A course of anti-depressants and several electroshock treatments later, she has recovered enough to go home, but she is still troubled by the sociopath who is killing children. When the sociopath ends up shot to death, the story becomes really intriguing." -- Amazon reviewer
