Crooked Man: A Hard-Boiled but Humorous New Orleans Mystery (Tubby Dubonnet Series #1) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series), by Tony Dunbar. (Still free?)

"Puts you in the company of a worldly, energetic gourmand who treats the slings and arrows of the case he's involved with as so many distractions from the real business of living. Dunbar, as a writer, comes across as the epitome of an appreciator, an observer who marvels at the humanity in front of him without genuflecting. New Orleans has taken some big hits in the past decade, but in Tony Dunbar's wonderful Tubby Dubonnet series disasters have met their match. Spend an evening or two with Tubby and you'll be delightfully transformed." -- Amazon reviewer

The FIRST offbeat mystery in the TUBBY DUBONNET series, by Anthony- and Edgar-nominated author Tony Dunbar.

If a gym bag of cash fell into your hands, what would you do to keep it?

A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time.

His clients are all renegades from the asylum (aka Orleans Parish), including a transvestite entertainer, a buxom deadbeat blonde, a doctor who refers his own patients to a malpractice lawyer, and a Mardi Gras reveler who drives a float shaped like a giant crawfish pot. He also has his hands full with an ex-wife and three teenage daughters, who are experts in the art of wrapping Tubby around their little fingers. And somehow, between work and family, Tubby finds time to sample the highs and lows of idiosyncratic Crescent City cuisine, from trout meuniere amandine and French roast coffee with chicory to shrimp po-boys and homemade pecan pralines.

Tubby's new client is Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub who's been caught unloading marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym bag. But after Darryl's unfortunate demise, Tubby realizes he must tighten his grasp on the gym bag -- and its million-dollar contents.

Tubby can’t just give up the cash. But if he gets caught, he’ll be in jail. And if the wrong people catch him, he’ll wish he was.

Doubt (Among Us Trilogy Book 1), by Anne-Rae Vasquez. (Still 0.99?)

"Anyone seeking a phenomenal paranormal YA novel that's wonderfully fresh, innovative and devoid of any clich├ęs or predictability will love DOUBT. This book appealed to me greatly as not only an avid reader of YA fantasy (sub genres), but also the exciting and original premise stood-out at me." -- Amazon reviewer

For readers who have a twisted delight in books with "End of Times / Armageddon" themes or are fans of J.J. Abrams' show "Fringe" or Glenn Gordon Caron's "Medium."

At 21 years old, Harry and Cristal are fresh out of university with their PhD's. Labeled all their lives as being 'weird' and 'geeky', they find true friendships with other outcasts by playing online virtual reality games. Now they face the challenges trying to get used to their 'adult' identities. Harry Doubt, a genius programmer and creator of the popular online game 'Truth Seekers', has a personal mission of his own; to find his mother who went mysteriously missing while volunteering on a peacekeeping mission in Palestine. His gaming friends and followers inadvertently join in helping him find her; believing that they are on missions to find out what has happened to their own missing loved ones. During Harry's missions, Cristal and the team of 'Truth Seekers' stumble upon things that make them doubt the reality of their own lives. As they get closer to the truth, they realize that there are spiritual forces among them both good and evil, but in learning this, they activate a chain of events that start the beginning of the 'end of the world' as they know it.

Doubt is Book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy. Among Us is a book series which delves into the world of the supernatural and how it intersects with the everyday lives of seemingly ordinary young people as catastrophic events on earth lead to the end of times. Among Us weaves the theme of a young man and woman, who while not fully understanding their 'abilities', are drawn together in their desire to find out the truth about the world they live in which is similar to themes used in J.J. Abrams' TV shows Fringe and Lost.

A house she's been watching for quite some time finally comes up for sale and Mitzy begins snooping into its past. Soon she finds herself in trouble of a sinister kind. If you love good clean fiction with mystery action and adventure all rolled into one then this book does the trick." -- Goodreads reviewer

But with the homeowner desperate to keep Mitzy away from his property and Alonzo, the dangerously hot rival investor trying to snatch it out from under her, Mitzy knows she has to work fast, or the economy won’t be the only thing dead…
