Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday Feb 7)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

Ruthless (The Blackwell Files), by Steven F. Freeman. (Still 4.99?)


"Wonderful blend of mystery and romance, with the emphasis on "mystery!" The characters are very well developed, and I found myself not wanting to put it down without finding out what happens next!" -- Amazon reviewer

A disabled ex-Army officer turned world-class cryptographer...a beautiful FBI agent...and a ruthless murderer on the loose in Atlanta.

A heartless killer ambushes and guns down ex-mobster Jay Mancini. Days later, the killer disposes of Mancini’s live-in girlfriend in cold blood. Desperate to identify the culprit, Jay’s niece Chelsea convinces work colleague and amateur detective Alton Blackwell to help investigate the seemingly run-of-the-mill professional mob hits.

Alton and his girlfriend, FBI Agent Mallory Wilson, race to sequester Chelsea away from wrathful mob gangsters intent on silencing anyone with knowledge of “family activities.” But the investigation spirals out of control as a series of new events with no apparent mob connection serves to confound their efforts to identify the assassin. As Alton and Mallory struggle to make sense of scant evidence, unseen danger marches inexorably closer to them and Chelsea, who seems to lie in the vortex of the mayhem. Will Alton and Mallory unravel the mystery in time to avoid becoming the killer’s next victims? And will their growing relationship survive the presence of the beautiful Chelsea Mancini'?

Combining edge-of-your-seat psychological thrills with a side of romance, RUTHLESS keeps readers guessing until the final clue is revealed.

Obitchuary, by Stephanie Hayes. (Still 0.99?)


"Totally hilarious and a really fun read. I never laugh aloud while reading but OBITCHUARY had me giggling the whole way through, mostly because Penny is such a fun protagonist to root for — she's self-deprecating and neurotic while still managing to be sassy and smart and surprising." -- Amazon reviewer

Penny Perkins, journalist, upstanding citizen, dutiful bridesmaid, just killed her date. Smashed him on the head with a bottle of Misty Mangoberry Merlot.

She is tipsy and panicked. She is wearing a heinous pink bridesmaid dress that makes her irrational. Penny knows she should call the cops and explain her date's grabby hands, his crazy eyes. She should cry self-defense. She should do a lot of things she doesn't do.

Things are about to get real complicated for Penny, as her dead date's life unravels into a mystery the deeper she investigates. Death just happens to be her job.

She's the newspaper's obituary writer.

"OBITCHUARY is a near-perfect blend of sweet, tart, and salty. It's an excellent antidote to the stresses of everyday life, a perfect book to curl up with on the couch when the economy or politics have got you down."
-IndieReader

"Stephanie Hayes has an ear for dialogue and a deft hand with humor in the laugh-out-loud mystery, Obitchuary. …The humor is everywhere in this book; found in Penny’s relationship with her family, her relationship with her awkward coworker, even in the murder Penny commits. Hayes has a sense of humor that runs along the lines of Janet Evanovich."
-ForeWord Clarion

Perhaps I've Said Too Much (A Great Big Book of Messing With People), by Rodney Lacroix. (Still 4.99?)


"Rodney is a wildly talented author with a gift for comedic storytelling. He makes it look easy, which makes me laugh. "Perhaps I've Said Too Much" is filled with hilarity and awkwardness -- highly recommended. " -- Amazon reviewer

Perhaps I’ve Said Too Much is the much anticipated follow-up to the heralded, award-winning Things Go Wrong For Me. In his second book, Rodney continues to harass the reader with his dull wit and unique story-telling style. Complete with original hand-drawn artwork and graphics, one-two punch Brain Nuggets, and the ever-popular Draw Something Files, Perhaps will not disappoint.* (Assumes you are an immature child who enjoys potty humor and making fart noises with your armpits.)


353 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 37 reviews.

ePatient 2015 - 15 Surprising Trends Changing Health Care, by Rohit Bhargava. (Still 2.99?)


"I found the survey data to be fresh and thought provoking and I learned about nutrition, stay well hotel rooms and accelerated trial sourcing. I know first hand, how hard it is to organize disparate facts into big picture trends. The book is easy to read and presents themes that will keep you wondering what to expect next! " -- Amazon reviewer

“A fascinating and groundbreaking look at how technology and empowered patients are fundamentally changing health care – and a vitally important reminder that the future of health care is about more than who pays for it.”

Written by best selling author Rohit Bhargava (Likeonomics) and noted digital health futurist Fard Johnmar, ePatient 2015 combines groundbreaking original research with insights from pioneers of the digital health movement to offer a road map for patients, caregivers, providers, and business professionals seeking to understand the future of health care.

Taking a global view, the book brings readers on a journey from the robotics labs of Japan to a tiny Dutch city using data to revolutionize breast cancer treatment. These are the stories that bring 15 bold new trends shaping the future of health care to life, including “The Over-Quantified Self,” “CareHacking,” “MicroHealth Rewards,” and “Multicultural Misalignment” to name a few.

- The Over-Quantified Self: How Big Data may deliver “feel good” stats rather than real actionable health advice
- Multicultural Misalignment: Why it is critical that health innovators develop products that address differences in age, ethnicity, and culture
- MicroHealth Rewards: What game theory teaches us about changing health behavior and why rewards (or punishments) work—or don’t
- CareHacking: The surprising ways patients are using digital tools to get better, lower cost, and faster care

Whether you spend most of your time inside the health care system, or happen to be among the billions of people who will end up using it one day, ePatient 2015 paints a surprisingly unique, optimistic, and clear-eyed vision of health care’s future, and how anyone can get ready for it.

Dangerous Waters, by Anne Allen. (Still 0.99?)


"The book was remarkable, with some lovely historical aspects interwoven with the drama of Jeanne's efforts to build a new life. The characters were authentic and well-illustrated." -- Amazon reviewer

Review
The island of Guernsey is so vividly evoked, one feels as if one is walking its byways. An atmospheric and tantalising read. --Elizabeth Bailey, author of The Gilded Shroud

I've never been to Guernsey but I'm determined to go now that I've read this book. It's a book you can settle into and really enjoy, but it's a lot more than chick-lit. There's an intriguing mystery, a finish which had me reading into the early hours of the morning and an insight into what I think of as the back-end of the publishing industry the bit that the reader never sees or even knows exists. It's delivered with a light touch but gives the book real depth. I was impressed. **** --Bookbag.co.uk --Bookbag.co.uk
