Free and bargain Kindle books! (Monday Jun 30)

Free today!

Omega Dog (Joe Venn #1), by Tim Stevens. (Still free?)

"Loved every page, every scene. I enjoy car chases in a movie, probably because of the fast pace, the excitement. This book was lIke that, full of action at every turn. Recommended to anyone who likes mysteries with a main character full of guts and determination to see an assignment to the end. And oh, the end, I thought he was 'done for', but he came through. Will be looking for more." -- Amazon reviewer

MEET JOE VENN. THE OMEGA DOG. 
 
Joe Venn is down on his luck. A Marine and police detective lieutenant, he was kicked off the Chicago force for getting a little heavy-handed while cleaning up the streets. Now he’s eking out a living as a private eye in downtown Manhattan, on a road to nowhere.

His life’s about to get a whole lot worse…

When Venn is arrested for a murder he didn’t commit, he’s given a choice.
Track down a missing professor of neurochemistry, in an operation that’s so politically sensitive even the FBI can’t be allowed to touch it.
Or face life in prison.

Dr Beth Colby is having a bad day, too.

She’s used to dealing with death, in her job as a physician at one of New York City’s busiest hospitals. But two people she knows have just died mysteriously in the space of twenty-four hours.
And before the day’s out, Beth herself will become the target of a shocking attack.

Events conspire violently to throw Venn and Beth together, and soon they’re locked into a desperate race against time to uncover the secret of Professor Lomax’s disappearance.

What’s the connection with the research he’s conducting into groundbreaking neuromodulatory drugs?

And why are Venn and Beth being hunted by not one but two professional assassins – as well as by the most powerful organized crime family in New York?

As the chase spreads from Manhattan to New England and back again, and the net closes relentlessly in on Venn and Beth, each of them must use their unique set of skills to the maximum.
Not just to uncover the terrible secret so many people are desperate to keep hidden.
But also simply to stay alive…

Relentless in its action, terrifying in its suspense, and riddled with twist upon shocking twist, OMEGA DOG is a heartstopping rollercoaster ride that will thrill and chill you in equal measure.

The Two Towers, by Jamie A. Waters. (Still 3.99?)

"I could not stop reading it. All the characters felt "real" and the descriptions of the settings were breathtaking and the plot immediately hooked me in. I finished the book wanting more of this story, I feel this first volume is the tip of the iceberg. This is one author I am putting on my watch list." -- Amazon reviewer

One hundred and fifty years after the earth was ravaged by war, the two self-sustaining towers built by OmniLab continue to offer a safe haven for those who paid the hefty price to assure their family's survival. But on the surface, there are others who have survived over the years struggling to barter and trade artifacts found within the ruins of the crumbling cities in exchange for critical supplies.

When Kayla, a ruin rat skilled in computer hacking and scavenging, discovers a strange artifact known as The Aurelia Data Cube, she finds herself inadvertently caught up in a series of events that threatens the lives of the mysterious and elusive people within OmniLab.

Carl, an unorthodox negotiator with a head for business, is determined to eradicate the corruption amongst his OmniLab brethren and has no qualms about using Kayla to do it. Unfortunately, he wasn't counting on the vastness of the corruption or his own feelings for the headstrong woman who turns his life upside down.

Caught between the life she knew and a dangerous world that's claimed her as their own, Kayla learns the fearful truth behind just how far one man will go to obtain power and how far she'll go to survive.

Chances, by Jackie Collins. (Still free?)

"Wow! What a read! Suspense, steamy sex, violence, intrigue... it's all there. I found myself with a giant crush on the tough Gino Santangelo, and I came to admire his headstrong daughter, Lucky. Collins creates quite a memorable cast of characters in this novel. Some reviewers have noted that the story seemed "dated," as this book was published in 1975, but I thought this was an unfair criticism. Afterall, all the great works of literature are "dated." Not that I'm equating this book with great literature, but I thought this made the book even more appealing... giving the reader (who, like me, might have been very young in the 70's) a glimpse into that era. If you're a fan of Mafia-esque novels, and you're looking for a book that will immediately draw you in and carry you away, this is one I would recommend. I could hardly put it down! Now, I'm getting started on the sequel because I just don't want the journey to end! " -- Amazon reviewer

From "Lucky" to "Lady Boss" to "Vendetta: Lucky's Revenge" and "Dangerous Kiss"… Jackie Collins’ sizzling Lucky Santangelo saga all began with CHANCES.

The book that made Jackie Collins one of America’s favorite authors sweeps you from the sophisticated playgrounds of Europe to the glittering gambling palaces of Las Vegas.

It plunges you into the reckless, dangerous world of the Santangelo crime family. It introduces you to Gino Santangelo, the street kid who makes it all the way to the top.

And then brings you Lucky—his sensual, stunningly beautiful, and passionate daughter; a woman who dares to win her father’s empire for herself; a woman unafraid of taking… CHANCES.
