The Shekinah Legacy (A Charlotte Ansari Thriller), by Gary Lindberg. (Still free?)
Let's start with this best-selling thriller that tells an international story reminiscent of Dan Brown's works. "Lost souls, saved souls, CIA agents, religious nuts and spiritually superior beings" all come together in this novel that sports over 70 five-star reviews.
"This is the book that Dan Brown should have written. It is as an exciting alternative religious history filled with plenty of action and interesting plot twists. It is based on real research. I recommend this book to all who like a good thriller. I can't imagine what Mr. Lindberg will do for an encore." -- S. Moore for BookPleasures.com
352 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 135 reviews.

Hamelin's Child, by DJ Bennett. (Still $2.99?)
All five-star reviews for this thriller set in the dark and dangerous world of London's underground drug culture. (Caution: some tough emotional and sexual scenes.)
"The story is about a 17-year old boy who falls into the clutches of a couple of villains who drug him over a period of weeks and force him into homosexual prostitution. There is some explicit sexual activity in the book, but not for the sake of being lurid. It is critical to the plot as the protagonist, Michael, slowly loses touch with his former self and his addiction takes control of his life. While the subject matter is dark, Michael is a character you will care about. Even as he makes unwise choices and immerses himself in the very lifestyle he hates, he manages to hang onto his soul. DJ Bennett is an excellent writer, and she does a wonderful job fleshing out her characters. I highly recommend this book." -- Amazon reviewer

I always feel like I am a part of her novels. She brings you into the world she's created and before you know it you're swept off your feet." -- Amazon reviewer

"One of those true to life books where you're cringing knowing that the characters have gone through so much and wanting so much more for them." - My Seryniti Book Reviews
"This is such an amazing read. There is heartbreak, romance, deception, murder, mystery - all entwined around an engaging cast of characters. I really enjoyed the friendship between Cleo and Sylvia, as it reminded me of some of my friendships, and how a friend's happiness can be worth taking a risk." - Chick Lit Plus
246 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 43 reviews.
Reprobate - A Katla Novel (Amsterdam Assassin Series), by Martyn V. Halm. (Still $3.99?)
This highly-rated book is the first novel in the Assassin series from Martyn V. Halm.
"5.0 out of 5 stars. Gripping, multi-layered and surprising. This is at once a fast-paced thriller with several intriguing twists, and an intimate portrait of a budding relationship between two apparently very different central characters. The story is told from the perspective of several different protagonists, so that the reader feels connected to members of each of the three 'sides', without losing an overarching perspective. I found the descriptions of the action scenes incredibly detailed and totally gripping. It was like watching a film. The book also has a dry humour about it which serves to alleviate the tension and underline its realism. This book also contains one of the fullest, and most realistic depictions of a blind character that I have come across. It is very refreshing to find a novel in which the practicalities of blindness are discussed with such ease. I can't wait to read the next novel in the series." -- Jemima_Loves_Kindle
374 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 6 reviews.
GOTU - A Robin Marlette Novel, by Mike McNeff. (Still $0.99?)
A police procedural thriller with 25 five-star reviews!
"GOTU is a thrilling and action-driven police drama that moves at a surprisingly fast pace, including frequent violent clashes, family drama and much more. At the heart of the novel is Robin Marlette, a maverick sergeant of the special narcotics squad and someone who everybody respects and looks up to. After the shooting of the brother of one of Mexico's leading drugs lords, things start to get a bit sticky. A thriller that packs a whole lot of punches and really captivates once you're in the thick of it." -- The Kindle Book Review
212 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 41 reviews.
Detonate (Tyrone King), by David Greene. (Still $2.99?)
PI Tyrone King chases terrorists with the aid of Sarah, a fellow train passenger... and becomes implicated in a plan to destroy the Statue of Liberty. 4+ rating!
"This is David Greene's second terrific book. Detonate is a face paced, exciting and fun story of a terrorist plot to destroy an American treasure. The story is filled with twists and turns that keep the reader at the edge of their seat. It is a fast paced page turner that I found to be a perfect travel companion." -- Amazon reviewer
