I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Story), by C. Gockel. (Still free?)

Over 150 five-star reviews for this opener to C. Gockel's mesmerizing Loki story!

"This is a fun read, it includes plenty of background for those not immersed in Norse mythology. I enjoyed the interaction of the characters and the misinterpretation of their interactions between each other due to social differences of dark age Scandinavia and modern day America. The characters are very real and the story reads fast, a great read." -- Amazon reviewer

In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan to get to her grandma's house in time for dinner. But she's being pursued by a very bad wolf.

Galaxies away Loki, so-called Norse God of Mischief and Chaos, is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover. He has no idea what he's done wrong--this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten ...

In this tale that is equal parts "Another Fine Myth," "American Gods," and "Once Upon a Time," a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit Norse gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he's forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her breasts, or three day benders, they just might pull it off.

This first installment of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects chaos, tricksters, and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants an epic fantasy romp through contemporary Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Death Before Facebook (Skip Langdon #4) (Skip Langdon Mystery) (The Skip Langdon Series), by Julie Smith. (Still free?)

"I have enjoyed re-reading the entire Skip Langdon series by Julie Smith now that they have been issued in e-books. Ms. Smith books capture the ambiance of New Orleans while also telling good mystey stories -- since I love reading mysteries and New Orleans is one of my favorite cities, this is a perfect fit for me!" -- Amazon reviewer

Death Before Facebook, formerly entitled New Orleans Beat, is the FOURTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon series by Julie Smith.

"Smith not only gives us the lowdown on the Big Easy but also take us into the often weird world of computer bulletin boards ... Reader-friendly from log-on to log-off." -The Orlando Sentinel

MURDER MOST VIRAL!

It’s a chilly November in 1994, and thirty-one-year-old Geoff Kavanagh surreptitiously splits his time between science fiction novels and cyberspace in his parents’ dilapidated, overgrown, uptown New Orleans mansion. Until his mother finds him dead from a suspicious fall off a ladder. Maybe he should never have posted about seeing his father murdered … because way too many people on the TOWN, a pre-Facebook virtual community, knew things about his family he didn’t even suspect. Decades-old skeletons start falling out of closets after Geoff’s untimely death, thanks to New Orleans Detective Skip Langdon. Langdon finds Geoff’s gorgeous mom strangely uninterested in her son’s fatal fall, but Mom’s apparently the only one. It seems the post has gone viral. Suddenly all the TOWNSpeople have theories—and ambition as cyberdetectives. What’s a murderer to do but kill his way out?

Calling the windup “a virtuoso spin on Rashomon,” Kirkus noted that, along the way, “Smith worms her way deeply and painfully into her cast's layers and layers of past relations, getting deeper than ever into Skip as well.”

Dead Center (The Rookie Club, Book 1), by Danielle Girard. (Still free?)

"Danielle Girard puts an enormous amount of energy into her work. While writing "The Rookie Club" she researched everything from DNA to resource sciences and geographical detail to the real work of coroners and the typical daily life of a sex crimes inspector. The result is a book that reads like a depiction of real events that happened to real people. And that makes what you're reading all the more compelling, and frightening." -- Amazon reviewer

** Author's Cut Edition **

Fifteen years ago, the Rookie Club began as a tight-knit band of female cops struggling for respect from their male peers. Jamie Vail was one of them. So was Natasha Devlin, the woman Jamie caught in bed with her husband.

When Natasha Devlin turns up dead, Jamie wants nothing to do with the investigation. As a seasoned inspector in the sex crimes department, Jamie is facing her own terrifying case—female officers are being brutalized by a stranger leaving no clues. The Rookie Club is under attack, possibly by one of their own.

Now, Jamie must confront her past and solve the murder of her ex-husband's lover before she becomes the killer's ultimate prize.

Previously titled: The Rookie Club

Ice Cold: A Rizzoli & Isles Novel, by Tess Gerritsen. (Still 1.99?)

"I couldn't put it down! Good story with lots of exciting mysteries for the characters involved." -- Amazon reviewer

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:

--Rizzoli & Isles, In Their Own Words: learn more about the lead characters in these special essays written by the author
--An excerpt chapter from Tess Gerritsen's Die Again.


A spur-of-the-moment ski trip becomes a bone-chilling nightmare when a wrong turn leaves Boston medical examiner Maura Isles marooned—far from home and help—in the snowbound Wyoming mountains. Seeking shelter from the cold, she and her traveling companions stumble upon Kingdom Come—a remote village of identical houses that seems to have become a ghost town overnight. But the abandoned hamlet has dark secrets to tell, and Maura’s party may not be as alone as they think. Days later, word reaches Boston homicide cop Jane Rizzoli that Maura’s charred remains have been found at the scene of a car crash. But the shocking news leaves Jane with too many questions, and only one way to get answers. Determined to dig up the truth, she heads for the frozen desolation of Kingdom Come, where gruesome discoveries lie buried, and a ruthless enemy watches and waits.

Look for Tess Gerritsen's other Rizzoli & Isles eBooks: The Surgeon (contains additional bonus content), The Apprentice, The Sinner, Body Double, Vanish, The Mephisto Club, and The Keepsake.

Published in the UK as THE KILLING PLACE.
