The Delphi Agenda, by Rob Swigart. (Still 0.99?)

This thriller has over 50 five-star reviews, and is $2 off today.

"A new twist! Ever since the Da Vinci Code brought treasure hunting back into popularity, there have been a plethora of novels in which the characters race around the world, chased by evil-doers, to find various artifacts that frequently contain magical powers or stunning new historical facts. Some manage to be entertaining, some don't. This one, based on the Delphi Oracle, adds a new interesting twist to the hunt and offers a studious, professorial heroine rather than a hairy chested swashbuckling pirate. I like that about this book. The history was also accessible and the descriptions of the various international locations was colorful and engaging." -- Amazon reviewer

Bold and brassy … a breathless romp with prose that crackles like a live wire, bites like a rabid dog, [and] smooths like 30-year-old Scotch.” -San Francisco Review of Books

An action-packed unraveling of the secrets of ancient history mixed in with a chilling conspiracy that brings to mind Dan Brown’s bestseller INFERNO.

Papyrologist Lisa Emmer’s world flips when the Surete meets her at her Metro station with news of the savage murder of the esteemed Paris historian Dr. Raimond Foix, her friend and mentor in the study of ancient documents. Horrified, Lisa finds clues at the crime scene left behind for her by her mentor—clues to a secret kept hidden for centuries. These clues make her a prime suspect in the murder investigation, and also put her directly in the cross-hairs of a deadly commando group that proves to be none other than a contemporary offshoot of the Inquisition.

They want an ancient document that reveals a secret so explosive it could change the world—a document they’ve been tracking for centuries. Led by a sadistic priest and a vicious but very accomplished nun with excellent military cred, their mission is to destroy the document—no matter what the cost in blood.

Desperate to clear her name and to stay alive, with the help of a handsome yet mysterious banker, Lisa must solve the clues and uncover the millennia-old secret before her adversaries can find and destroy it. Since she was a child Lisa had suffered from uncontrollable fugue states. Now she discovers just in time that what she always thought was a liability may in fact be an almost paranormal ability to see things in ways others cannot. The trail leads everywhere from ancient cemeteries and tombs throughout France to Istanbul and Greece, as Lisa and Steve desperately stay one step ahead of their enemies, solving the clues to a dangerous treasure hunt their lives now depend upon.

A must-read for fans of Steve Berry, Dan Brown and Raymond Khoury!

“Swigart is one of the few thriller writers with a poetic sense … [who] knows how to give high velocity to an action mystery.” -San Francisco Chronicle

Murder on the Isle of Capri, Italy (Ryan-Hunter Series Book 4), by Dr. Karen Donahue. (Still free?)

"Excellent reading for summer or anytime. I read at night to escape from my day and find this series very entertaining. Detail is sufficient to make movies in my brain of the action, but I really would like to see these adventures of Marin and John on 'the big screen'. Such spectacular back drop for these tails of good vs evil." -- Amazon reviewer

American criminology professor Marin Ryan and billionaire computer genius John Hunter are drawn into a homicide investigation when one of Marin's colleagues is murdered in Italy. Her friend's historical research uncovered a connection between sixteenth century pirates and three present-day wealthy families.

In this world of private jets, luxury yachts, and Italian villas, the chase leads Marin and John from Capri to New York to Hawaii and back, putting their lives in constant danger.

A reader of the Ryan-Hunter series wrote, "Kept me up all night. Intrigue at its best." Another reader said, " Nonstop adventure and excitement. Extremely well written. No dull moments EVER. Loved it," and another added, "Every line held my attention, with such an interesting plot, and totally unexpected surprises appearing often. Suspense, intrigue, and 'glitter' all in one package."

MULTIPLE MOTIVES (The Kate Huntington mystery series #1), by Kassandra Lamb. (Still free?)

"Lamb's characters are wonderfully developed and engaging with many endearing qualities. I particularly appreciated the depth of the relationships amongst the characters. In the guise of a fast-paced mystery Lamb explores the complexities of male/female friendships and introduces us to some of the challenges of psychotherapy. Multiple Motives has a well planned plot with subtle clues to keep you guessing who-dun-it until the very end. It is well written with wholly believable characters you'll consider friends by the end of the book." -- Amazon reviewer

Psychotherapist Kate Huntington helps other people cope with the horrible things that have happened to them, but she herself has led a charmed life... until now. When a series of what seem like random events–a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time–takes a sinister twist, it becomes apparent that she and her lawyer friend, Rob Franklin, have a common enemy. But the lead police detective has a different theory. He’s convinced Kate and Rob are lovers attempting to eliminate their spouses. And he seems determined to build a case against them.

As the attacks escalate, Kate and Rob are forced to investigate on their own. Who hates them enough to want them both dead? And doesn’t seem to mind if others get caught in the crossfire!
