Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday Mar 14)

Luthecker, by Keith Domingue. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Intellectually satisfying! A very interesting premise that makes you look twice at the world and events around you. Can't wait for the next installment to see where the author takes his creative characters. A highly visual and fast paced read that keeps your attention as each detail plays it's role in the story." -- Amazon reviewer

ALEX LUTHECKER lives off of the grid. He prefers the comfort of the night. He avoids the crowded and chaotic daylight hours, because the relentless anxieties of the multitudes overwhelm him. This is because Alex has a rare gift. He is a pattern reader. Patterns in nature, patterns in social groups, patterns in individual behavior, he can recognize them all. With one conversation, he knows all of your secrets. He can tell you exactly who you are. He can tell you exactly how your life is going to end. For Alex, it's not magic. It's math.

NICOLE ELLIS works in the energy business. She trades futures in the lifeblood of civilization: crude oil. With the help of her patented pattern recognition software, PHOEBE, she has the uncanny ability to predict trends in oil production and consumption. And at the tender age of twenty-five, she is recognized as one of the best in the business, with the bank account to show for it. For Nicole, who grew up with nothing, the world is hers.

RICHARD BROWN was a highly respected intelligence officer during both Gulf Wars. He oversaw rendition squads, making sure that his interrogators didn't cross the line into torture, and if they did, that no one would ever be the wiser. The only thing that mattered to the government was that Brown always got his man. His track record of success allowed his move into the private sector, eventually heading the corporate entity known as Coalition Properties, the largest military contractor in U.S. history. For Brown, the commodity he trades and sells is power.

A terrorist attack on a Saudi oil refinery sets the paths of all three on a collision course, an encounter that threatens to upset the balance of power in the world. Alex must learn to forge relationships and become a leader in order to save the lives of not only himself and Nicole, but also those of his loose band of allies, as he becomes one of the most sought after fugitives in history.

Xanadu (The Keszthelyi Chronicles), by Zichao Deng. (Still free?)

"A wild ride! Wow, what can I say? Having read the first book in the Keszthelyi Chronicles, I expected nothing but wild and hilarious adventures that would attack the protagonists and the readers from all unexpected directions, with all sorts of strange challenges. And yes, I got all of this and more!" -- Amazon reviewer

How far would you go in the pursuit of beauty?

Nicolas Keszthelyi - aesthete, philanderer and semi-legitimate Moscow antiques dealer - is heading to Afghanistan on the trail of buried treasure. A friend of a shady friend has discovered a hoard of priceless ivory carvings beneath a copper mine in Paktia, and Keszthelyi intends to ensure that finders remain keepers. Unfortunately, UNESCO, the Afghan government, and the mobbed-up owners of the mine seem, inexplicably, to have other plans.

In no time at all, Keszthleyi finds himself sucked into a great game of crime and chaos: playing high-stakes mahjong, impersonating the Russian mafia, wrestling with giant teddy bears and - just maybe - becoming filthy rich.

"The development of story and characters from part 1 to 2 is great! I'm excited for part 3. Really rooting for Peter and can't wait to read what happens to him and what he does. The attention to detail, including the French dialog was very well done!" -- Amazon reviewer

Peter's story continues in Linear Shift, Part 2.
