Blood, Smoke and Ashes, by Bradley Convissar. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 today in this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Brad Convissar's first full length novel is a genuine diamond in the rough. Briskly paced and entertaining. Brad takes us on a journey about an angry spirit of a serial killer whose hate and vengeance is stronger than death itself. The nightmare must be stopped at all costs and a trio of unlikely heroes must find a way to execute the evil once and for all. Very solid writing from Brad Convissar." -- Amazon reviewer

In the Fall of 1955, the state of Nevada used the electric chair to execute a prisoner for the first time.

It was also the last time.

Molly Blackburn, nicknamed Jane the Ripper by the Las Vegas press after killing eleven men while posing as a prostitute, was strapped to the chair without incident. The switch was flipped.

Everything after that went horribly wrong.

Since that day, a copycat Jane the Ripper has appeared almost every decade in a different city, mimicking Molly's choice in victims as well as her methods of murder. She kills eleven men then disappears, never to be found. The similarities between the bodies left behind each decade is uncanny. As if they are all the victims of the same murderer, not a copycat.

But that's impossible, of course, because Molly Blackburn is dead, her execution witnessed by a dozen people.

FBI Agent Jack Shaw, the lead investigator in the Jane the Ripper cases since the seventies, finally catches a break in 2009 when the intended fifth victim manages to turn the tables on the newest copycat . Everyone believes that the horror has finally ended with her capture. Shaw is not so sure, though, wondering if someone else will take up the mantle and kill seven more men to complete the cycle. But when no more bodies with her distinctive markings show up over the next two years, Shaw allows himself to believe that maybe he has seen the end of the Jane the Ripper murders.

As it turns out, what he thought was the end was only the beginning.

His hunt will take him across the country, and even when he thinks he's finally discovered the truth, he quickly learns that not everything is as it seems.

That not every monster is created equal.

That the nature of good and evil is not as black and white as he has always believed.

That not everything that is broken can be put back together.

That not every fractured soul can be saved.

When blood, smoke and ashes rise, no one comes out the same on the other side.

Blood, Smoke and Ashes is a 150,00 word supernatural thriller

Sometimes falling in love means going through hell.

Nicola Hart grew up under the heels of her older brother and his sexy best friend, Cash Garrison. Years of ignoring her spark with Cash has transformed their friendship into a slow burning sizzle. One night with him could ruin everything. Or it could be more than she ever dreamed. They play. They flirt. But they haven't crossed the line because too much is at stake. Family. Friendship.

She's his best friend's little sister. The definition of hands off. Cash has tried to ignore her for years. Those innocent eyes and her smile that screams kiss-me-if-you-dare... Instead, he's looked at every pretty little thing who's crossed his path, all to ignore the girl he seems destined to want. But when his hard partying ways get old and everyone at school is interested in Nicola, it's time to stake a claim. To make Nicola his girl, no matter the risks, and hold the hand of the one he really loves.

Save $2 today on this Countdown Deal!

"The dark subject matter is dealt with in a compassionate but unflinching way that is far from the voyeuristic tone of some thrillers. I love a story where you learn about something new, and found the aspects relating to the manifestation of multiple personality disorders fascinating. Lessons of Evil delivers several intriguing and memorable characters, with protagonist Laura a clear-eyed, sympathetic and believable centre to this gripping, fast-paced story that kept me turning the e-pages." -- Amazon reviewer

Occult Assassin: Ice God, by William Massa. (Still 0.99?)

"If what you seek is straight up action and adventure in exotic locales Occult Assassin will definitely deliver. I'm looking forward to future installments in the Mark Talon/ Occult Assassin series. It is so rare to find an author who understands what the reader of action adventure fiction really wants, and if Ice God is any indication, I will be enjoying hours of entertainment only broken up by the disappointment of waiting for the next installment!" -- Amazon reviewer
