Free and bargain Kindle books! (Saturday Nov 22)

Dark Alleys (A Spencer Manning Mystery Book 2), by Rick Polad. (Still 0.99?)


"Captivating! I read a lot of mysteries and this is one of the best I have had the pleasure of reading in the last several years. Spencer Manning, doing a favor for a public defender, gets into a bit of trouble trying to keep a lady of the night out of trouble and, in doing so solves two parallel crimes. The two cases are expertly woven together in a manner that kept me guessing but avoided getting too tangled in the weeds." -- Amazon reviewer

History is being repeated as women are being killed in the streets of Chicago. Spencer Manning is drawn into the middle of it by a friend who asks for a simple favor.

Save $2 with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A lively but grim story in a weird world like only a Mike Hammer could tell. Colorful scenes with gripping detail and characters that spring to life . Shelley Singer shows her writing skills in how she manages merging crisp dialogue with prose in and out again. I highly recommend it." -- Amazon reviewer

The FOURTH lively adventure in the Jake Samson and Rosie Vicente mystery series.

“Jake Samson is sensitive and funny, a little wise, a little wary and pretty wonderful.” -Publishers Weekly

IT WAS A JOB THE BARROW GANG MIGHT HAVE ENVIED…

The vault emptied out, not a shot fired. In fact, it resembled a burglary more than a bank job, but when you rob a sperm bank, that’s sometimes all it takes. Here’s the set-up: The North Coast Sperm Bank in tiny Wheeler, California has been knocked over, and the perp’s tossed its assets in the ocean, leaving a religious-nut note of explanation. Just a prank, says Wheeler law enforcement. But the bank says: Not so fast, that stuff was valuable!

Enter P.I. Jake Samson and his ever-sharp Watson, Rosie Vicente, hired by the bank to find out who made the unauthorized withdrawal. No sooner have they dragged their bedraggled Bay Area selves into the storm even now brutalizing Wheeler than a bank employee slips in the mud and falls to her death.

And Singer’s got more up her sleeve. Every time you turn around you learn more about Wheeler and its fascinating Northern California crazies…ummm.. we mean inhabitants! Did we say crazies? We meant very fun, fascinating people. They're a kick! As is this complex puzzle mystery.

The Devereaux Disaster (Susquehanna Virus Series Book 2), by Steve McEllistrem. (Still 0.99?)

"Having enjoyed the first book in this series, I was eagerly awaiting the next book, yet I was surprised with the direction that McEllistrem took with the story - and that's a good thing! This second story focuses on a group of cadets - children - who are bio-engineered to help solve an earthly problem. Their development leads to a series of events that allow McEllistrem to reintroduce major characters from the first novel and continue their stories. The political intrigue continues in this second story, allowing you to get further insight into the motivations of some of the characters, and leading to some interesting moral dilemmas. The Escala (advanced humans) are back, and their destiny is a parallel plot line to what happens with the cadets - the "second generation" of bio-engineering. Frankly, I can't wait to see what McEllistrem does with generation #3 in this trilogy." -- Amazon reviewer

Retired secret agent Jeremiah Jones travels to the Moon with his former enemy, Elite Ops trooper Jack Marschenko, to find his abducted son Joshua. But Jeremiah’s mission goes haywire almost immediately. Elias Leach, the head of CINTEP, and Jeremiah’s former boss, is behind the abduction and has constructed obstacles to prevent Jeremiah from recovering his son. Elias needs Joshua and his fellow cadets to attack specific targets on Earth. He believes that only an attack from an outside force like the cadets can unite the world’s warring nations. However, unbeknownst to Elias, the cadets he programmed have begun to devolve and they have no intention of following his directives. Further, after Jeremiah is gravely injured, he is infected with the Susquehanna Virus in a desperate attempt to save his life. Can Jeremiah stop his son and the rest of the cadets from attacking Earth? Can Walt Devereaux and the genetically enhanced Escala help? Or is Earth doomed? The Devereaux Disaster is the thrilling sequel to The Devereaux Dilemma.

Free today!

The Duchess War (The Brothers Sinister Book Book 1), by Courtney Milan. (Still free?)

"As always, Milan creates characters with depth and history. Minerva has solid reasons for wanting a safe world. Stepping outside of it is not consequence free. Robert is reacting to a legacy of shame that isn't his to bear but which he can't put down. I really loved her clever mind and his need to find a cause that redeems him. They were great characters on their own and totally worked as a couple." -- Amazon reviewer

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly--so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don't get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

But that is precisely what she gets.

Because Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont, is not fooled. When Minnie figures out what he's up to, he realizes there is more to her than her spectacles and her quiet ways. And he's determined to lay her every secret bare before she can discover his. But this time, one shy miss may prove to be more than his match...
