In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago, to smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The operation is only hours away and everything seems awry. Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life.

Brazil, by Errol Lincoln Uys. (Still 2.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"As a Brazilian born US resident who was educated in both countries, I found the book fascinating. It was not only entertaining, but it also filled many "gaps" in the knowledge I had of the country. Having had some years of Brazilian History in school was really helpful in allowing me to pinpoint fact from fiction, and that made the book all the more enjoyable." -- Amazon reviewer

Through the lives of two powerful families, Brazil is the first work of fiction to depict five turbulent centuries in the history of a remarkable land.

Brazil is an intensely human story, brutal and violent, tender and passionate. Perilous explorations through the Brazilian wilderness...the perpetual clash of pioneer and native, visionary and fortune hunter, master and slave...the thunder of war on land and sea ...

A free online Illustrated Guide offers a wealth of images and access to the writer's private journal bringing a unique insight into the novel and its creativity.

"Pulsing with vigor... Uys recereates history almost entirely at 'ground level,' through the eyes and actions of an awesome cast of characters." - Publishers Weekly

"A massive, richly detailed work, Uys has a sense of pace and eye for detail that rarely fail him." - Washington Post.

"A masterpiece! Brazil has the feel of an enchanted virgin forest, a totally new and original world for the reader-explorer to discover." - L'Express, Paris

"Uys has accomplished what no Brazilian author from José de Alencar to Jorge Amado was able to do. He is the first outsider with the total honesty and sympathy to write our national epic in all its decisive episodes. Descriptions like those of the war with Paraguay are unsurpassed in our literature and evoke the great passages of War and Peace." -- Wilson Martins, Jornal do Brasil

Winter in Sweetwater County, by Ciara Knight. (Still free?)

"The author brings you into this lovely, down home setting. This quaint little town is a place that I would like to visit and even raise my children. The main characters both have heartbreaking tales. It is heartwarming to see them connect as the story moves along. I don't want to give any of the story away, but there is some drama and I was on the edge of my seat to see how it would play out." -- Amazon reviewer

Lisa Mortan’s ideal life crumbles when her rich and powerful fiancé demands she ends an unwanted pregnancy. With no job or social support, she flees to a small town in hopes of finding a good family for her unborn baby, but instead finds a man who is as broken as she is.

Eric Gaylord returns to his home town for a respite after a tragic loss, but when his spitfire mother takes on an unknown woman as a business partner, he is forced to face the nightmare he’d left behind or risk losing the one woman who could heal his heart.

The Forgotten Girls (Book #1 in The Suburban Murder Series), by Alexa Steele. (Still free?)

"Three murders, lots of complex suspects, and two investigators are on the trail. The story follows the clues, characters and interviews used to dig into the case and pinpoint the perp. More intrigue than thrills and action - but interesting enough to keep the pages turning. Good police work story." -- Amazon reviewer

In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse.

Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx.

With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….
