Serpentine Enigma, by Charles Domina. (Still free?)
Genetic scientist Joanna gets drawn into the world of intelligence when she discovers a strange, well-funded foundation that accelerates human development for political and military purposes. This intelligent thriller is free today!
"The Serpentine Enigma is just the kind of book I like for my leisure time. The fast pace and lack of predictability of the entire book made me reluctant to put it down. All the elements of my definition of an enjoyable novel are here: constant surprises; unpredictable action; multiple mysteries; various types of romantic connections; friendship and betrayal; and international espionage.
I was especially pleased that Charles Domina wrote so convincingly from the female perspective. I identified with the protagonist as genuine and likeable, a well-respected professional who just happened to be a woman. I gained new insights on the topic of genetics; but all the science fit seamlessly into the plot. Having visited Cambridge several times, I thoroughly enjoyed descriptions of the setting." -- Amazon reviewer

Mike Daley and his ex-wife, running their own San Francisco criminal defense firm, pick up a case to defend their niece - and play host to a case of colorful characters as they pursue the case to its surprising end. Top 10 in Amazon mysteries!
"Criminal Intent is one of the most intricately plotted legal thrillers I've ever seen. This story has enough characters and suspense in it to fill four books. I admired the legal accuracy of the presentation. That was well grounded, and made the book more interesting and compelling.
After you finish this book, think about what your responsibilities are to family members in trouble. How can you help them avoid trouble in the first place?" -- Amazon Top 100 Reviewer
