MIAMI P.I. (Roy Findley Miami Detective Series #1), by Zane Owen Yates. (Still 1.99?)

"Yates' debut novel is definitely of the pizza-and-beer variety, and that's not at all a bad thing. Roy Findlay is a fiftyish ex-cop with a full head of jet-black Elvis hair, a love of classic muscle cars and a penchant for wearing loud Hawaii shirts, usually rumpled. Roy ekes out a tenuous existence as a private investigator and by taking part-time security jobs on Australia's Gold Coast, and he's got an inside "guy" at the local police department who just happens to be the daughter of his deceased ex-partner.

Miami, Gold Coast Australia, NOT Florida, is the back drop for this action packed, old style detective series, set in a modern fast paced world down under.

Roy Findley is a smart mouthed ex-cop turned Private Investigator, standing up for the little guy and taking a beating for his trouble.

He's a cross between Magnum P.I. and Starsky and Hutch. With his Elvis hair, stylish Hawaiian shirts, fast cars and a touch of romance, he's all class.

In this the first book in the Miami Series, Roy goes up against a local drug ring, a crooked land developer and half the cops in town.

STEALING POWER (A powerful psychological crime thriller), by Bo Brennan. (Still 0.99?)

"This is a fantastic first novel which is intended as the first of a trilogy. DCI Colt and Detective India Kane are on the trail of a serial rapist. The man obviously has some issued with Colt, as he sends him videos of the incidents as they happen. He also sends them to the drugged women, many of whom don't know they've been violated until they receive a tape. The story here is unusual, in that it involves not only individuals but families. The two detectives involved find themselves facing their own pasts and their own darkest fears. This is a gripping story and nicely told. I found myself twice deducing the identity of the villain and being wrong on both occasions! Lovers of crime stories, especially dark psychological thrillers, are in for a good read with this one. I particularly found the opening sequence a real hook. I couldn't stop reading after that! Excellent stuff, and I'm glad there's more to come." -- Amazon reviewer


STEALING POWER is easy, restoring it is hard.Detective Chief Inspector AJ Colt has lived his life in the limelight. The charismatic star of New Scotland Yard is public relations gold. Everyone loves him. Well, almost everyone. For three years, a serial rapist has been taunting and tormenting him, sending him DVD copies of every drug facilitated rape he commits. It's been one year since he received the last DVD and the trail is stone cold dead. When a new DVD arrives out of the blue, a familiar landmark takes him away from the job and life he loves and back to his home town of Winchester. The last place on earth he wants to be.
Winchester Detective India Kane does not suffer fools gladly, and she's surrounded by them. Obsessively private, she keeps her head down, gets on with her job, and doesn't bother anybody. She likes life that way. When people bother her, things have a tendency to get messy. She's just landed her first lead case - a drug facilitated rape investigation - and doesn't take kindly to the arrogant newcomer parachuted in to snatch it from her.
The hunt is on.
But the serial rapist is just warming up. As he escalates, so does his power. And he won't stop until he's stolen it all...... even if it means bringing his own brand of terror directly to those who hunt him.

As they close in on their suspect, Colt and Kane find themselves on a direct collision course with the darkest depths of the human psyche, their own demons, and a web of secrets, lies, and deceit; spun by those they trust the most.
When their lives collide - it won't just be the victims' worlds that are torn apart.

Deadly Crush (Deadly Trilogy, Book 1), by Ashley Stoyanoff. (Still 0.99?)

"What I love most about Stoyanoff's writing is her ability to make fiction feel realistic. The dialogue exchanged between characters is so natural; you can clearly imagine their voices. I am always amazed at how her writing plays like a movie in my mind; she literally brings her stories to life! Ashley Stoyanoff had done it again; she has made me addicted to her writing! I adored this book and I could gush about it for hours! It's a quick read because once you start it, trust me, you won't put it down! Jade is an independent, fiery, and passionate protagonist. I love any book with a strong female lead, maybe because they sometimes remind me of myself? Either way, I connected to Jade in so many ways...I would totally be her friend! Aiden and Dominic, just saying their names makes the temperature rise, both are seriously smokin' hot. The werewolf action scenes had me on the edge of my seat, so intense, so animalistic, and so genuine. The ending tugged at my heart but left me with such hope for Jade and Aiden... I think they make the perfect pair!" -- Amazon reviewer

From the award winning author of The Soul's Mark: FOUND comes Deadly Crush, the first book in a new series -- the Deadly trilogy.

Dog Mountain is just like any other small town -- peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it's overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.

Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn't seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.

Determined to keep him out of the pack's grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.

219 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 9 reviews.
