Bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday Sep 25)

The Island of Whispers, by Brendan Gisby. (Still 0.99?)

"Imagine my surprise when I logged on to write a review and I saw that everyone else had already said the same thing I wanted to say. So, I'll summarize in just a few short words: A wonderful, tragic, truthful story, reminds me of "Watership Down". He is a great writer and storyteller." -- Amazon reviewer

RICHARD ADAMS meets GEORGE ORWELL in this story of a colony of rats living on an island under the world-famous Forth Rail Bridge. Ruled over by an Inner Circle of evil fat rats, and in fear for their lives, a group of lowly Watchers attempts to brave the stormy waters and scale the giant bridge in a bid for freedom. But celebrations for the bridge's centenary are about to begin... Will they make it?

A story of oppression overcome, fierce loyalty, dreams and devastation. Grisly to the end, but with heart. You'll never look at those little islands in the same way again.

236 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 12 reviews.

The Paris Lawyer, by Sylvie Granotier. (Still 3.99?)

Recently translated from the award-winning French legal thriller!

"This was an incredibly compelling story that maintains that peculiar sensibility that is utterly French yet eludes description. While most of the more procedurally focused stories I have read flow between police and criminal, Granotier mixes it up and gives us young lawyer Catherine Monsigny enmeshed in two different storylines of past and present. Lush descriptions place readers in the city of Paris or in the small village in the hills of central France. It is easy to relate to the small town feel: curious neighbors, unlocked doors and a bit of suspicion about anyone different, Parisian or immigrant. Granotier has pulled layers from the characters to expose their secrets and flaws up to the last pages, and created a story that was well worth the time to read." -- Amazon reviewer

“A beautifully written and elegantly structured novel of a woman's attempt to solve the central mystery of her life, along with several other mysteries along the way. It captures the reader from the first page, and never lets go.” — Thomas H. Cook, winner of the Martin Beck Award, Barry Award for Best Novel, Edgar Award for Best Novel

Winner of the Grand Prix Sang d’Encre crime fiction award in 2011, for the first time in English.

As a child, Catherine Monsigny was the only witness to a heinous crime. Now, she is an ambitious rookie attorney in sophisticated modern-day Paris. On the side, she does pro bono work and hits the jackpot: a major felony case that could boost her career. A black woman is accused of poisoning her rich farmer husband in a peaceful village in central France, where the beautiful, rolling hills hold dark secrets. While preparing the case, Catherine’s own past comes back with a vengeance. This fast- paced story follows Catherine’s determined search for the truth in both her case and her own life. Who can she believe' And can you ever escape from your past' The story twists and turns, combining subtle psychological insight with a detailed sense of place.

"This is a complex tale, skillfully told, that will keep you in suspense to the very end.”
— Patricia MacDonald, Edgar-award nominee

“Full of surprises and twists that will keep you reading late into the night.”

“This is a suspense novel with an absolutely perfect atmosphere. The writing is subtle, racy, controlled. It is written with great art!”

— L’Echo

Blazing Nights (A Night Games Novel), by Linda Barlow. (Still 0.99?)

When you pretend to be a witch, you risk attracting a witch-hunter!  

Shakespearean actress Kate Kingsley is portraying one of the three witches in Macbeth when she playfully reads the palm of a sexy stranger. But Daniel Haggarty turns out to be a muckraking Internet crusader with zero tolerance for Kate's fortune-telling, her psychic mother, or her reincarnated cat.

While protecting her ghost-whisperer mom from the skeptical Daniel, Kate is irresistibly drawn by his dark sensuality. Soon they are playing a dangerous game. As the fires of love threaten to consume them both, it is no longer obvious who is practicing magic and who is under a spell.

A sexy new series Welcome to Book 1 of Linda Barlow's contemporary romance series, Night Games. The series is about a group of college friends who have stayed in touch since graduation via an online game that one of them created. They offer love and support for each other through their various life crises.

The books are each complete and separate, but in some respects they build upon one another. Characters are introduced in the first novel, Blazing Nights, who appear again in later books. While it's possible to read the stories in any order, readers will probably have the most fun if they read them sequentially.

Each of these books was published previously in some form, but they have been completely rewritten and bear little resemblance to the originals. All are considerably longer, with new characters and different events. Blazing Nights was inspired by Linda's classic romance (long out of print), Bewitched

Linda is also the author of the bestselling historical romance, Fires of Destiny.

Accolades "Linda Barlow's sexy, suspenseful page-turners are pure pleasure to read." Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Linda is a wonderful story-teller. She grabs you on the first page and plunges you straight into the tumultuous lives of her fascinating characters." Jayne Ann Krentz.

329 pages.

Wick - The Omnibus Edition, by Michael Bunker. (Still 2.99?)

"An epic, thought-provoking portrayal of terrifying calamity. Therein however, lies a still-beating heart and a hopeful soul of a nation clawing for survival." ~ Eamon Ambrose, Eamo the Geek Reviews

"Michael Bunker goes way beyond writing a popular thriller: he clearly has a literary agenda, making the W1CK series so rich and so deep you could analyse each and every page and write a whole book about it. I guess you'd have to call it W1CK1P3D1A." ~ Max Zaoui, Everyone's a Critic Reviews

"Michael Bunker is the sort of writer you read compulsively not because his books are thrilling (they are) or because his prose is elegant (it is) but because, like a tribal storyteller, he weaves intoxicating tales that elevate your mind and transport your soul to another place altogether." ~ Jason Gurley, Bestselling Author of Greatfall

This is the complete WICK Omnibus Edition, and includes the completely re-edited and expanded text of Michael Bunker and Chris Awalt's four, bestselling WICK series books.

"...beautiful and haunting...""...Tolstoyan, and beautiful...""...positively anarchic..."

In WICK 1... a man walked out of New York City after Hurricane Sandy and fell off the edge of the earth...In WICK 2: Charm School... a mysterious town explodes in violence and America is dealt a deadly blow...In WICK 3: Exodus... the world is without power. You are on foot and have no home. Any stranger you meet may kill you... and normal is never coming back...In WICK 4: One Word of Truth... Weeks after the world has been crippled by massive EMP attacks, nuclear weapons are used on major cities, and survivors grapple with a changed world that will never be the same again.

In this much anticipated WICK Omnibus Edition, Michael Bunker's completed WICK series is finally bound into one earth-shattering novel.

574 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 56 reviews.
