Purified, by Brian Robert Smith. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A wild ride; definitely a fascinating read. The author is obviously bound for the mainstream with his writing style, and the story is easy to follow. Purified is sort of a Frankenstein/mad scientist/detective/thriller story ranging from evolution experimentation, through assault, fraud, and murder - with a lot of twists and turns. I would very much enjoy reading more from this author in the future." -- Amazon reviewer

“There’s no use trying to escape. You’re miles from anywhere. You have no clothes, no food, no money... You’re dead, Mason.”

Mason Bushing died over a year ago, but his life was saved through an unauthorized experiment with a drug called Purify. When he awakens in a strange place, all Mason wants is his old life back. His plans change after he discovers his wife is more interested in the insurance money than seeing him alive. His best friend doesn’t believe his story, and after he almost kills his wife’s new boyfriend, fraud and assault charges loom.

When a detective is assigned the case, his suspicions are raised by lies, disturbing coincidences, and related homicides. Mason becomes his prime suspect, and he’s forced to run again.

Imagine having to run from someone who saved your life. Imagine everyone thinking you’re dead, and waking up to questions, accusations, conspiracies and murder. What would you do if you were Purified?

Glimmer and other stories: Strange short stories, unusual romance, supernatural eroticism, odd humour, mystery, by Nicola McDonagh. (Still free?)

"A miniature treasure chest of jewels. I absolutely loved these short stories. They were mesmerising, masterful, original, eloquent, lyrical, clever... There are some books I know I will return to, to savour them again with the same pleasure, and this is one of them. Nicola McDonagh’s use of language is subtly poetic; the words flow with a sensuous rhythm that carries the reader along on a wave of colourful narrative, sprinkled with uniquely painted descriptions that I found enchanting." -- Amazon reviewer

A riveting collection of surreal, supernatural and mysterious tales.

Purchase your copy of this weird and wonderful anthology - including the Award Winning story, 'Glimmer'.

“Glimmer and other stories is a miniature treasure chest of jewels. I absolutely loved these short stories. As I was reading, I fell into a trance of adjectival excess...they were mesmerising, masterful, original, eloquent, lyrical, clever.” Review by Lesley Hayes

From metaphysical speculation to sophisticated eroticism, these beautifully crafted tales explore human nature in all its diversity. Sometimes disturbing, sometimes inspirational, they all have a metaphorical richness that will take you into an uncanny world that straggles the line between the real and the imagined.

Ratcatcher (John Purkiss Thriller Book 1), by Tim Stevens. (Still free?)

"A high octane, fast-paced spy thriller... superb and captivating story... a great, heart-pounding read!" -- Goodreads reviewer

AN AMAZON TOP 10 TECHNOTHRILLER
BOOK ONE IN THE JOHN PURKISS SERIES

***** "Superb spy thriller...The prose is so vivid you can almost feel the action as it takes place..." - Jeremy Duns, author of The Dark Chronicles
*****"[J]oins Lee Child, David Baldacci and John D. MacDonald on my list of great spinners of thrillers." Edward F. Corbin, Amazon reviewer
 

The police have Internal Affairs departments. British Intelligence has John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher.
 

Purkiss's job is straightforward. Track down agents of the intelligence services who are taking kickbacks, committing crimes, or otherwise abusing their positions. And bring them to justice.
Straightforward doesn't mean easy...
 

After a renegade British former spymaster, Fallon, is sighted in the Baltic city of Tallinn on the eve of a historic summit meeting between the Russian and Estonian presidents, Purkiss is despatched to investigate, and uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to tear Europe, and the world, apart.

But Purkiss has personal reasons for going after Fallon. Four years ago, Fallon was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Purkiss's fiancée, a murder Purkiss himself witnessed.
Now, in an atmosphere of treachery and sudden violence, as the countdown begins to a potentially catastrophic conflict between Russia and the West, Purkiss must keep his desire for revenge under control for the sake of the world's - and his own - survival.


Described in Amazon reviews as a "cracker of a spy thriller" with "superbly choreographed action scenes" that "leave you feeling almost dizzy", RATCATCHER is both an adrenaline-fuelled action adventure novel and a hardboiled mystery story which exposes the world of the spy, in which few motives and actions are purely black or white.

419 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 377 reviews.

The Last One (The One Trilogy Book 1), by Tawdra Kandle. (Still free?)

"The familiarity of home, the warmth of family ties, the sweet sensation of being wrapped in the arms of THE ONE love that meant everything. . .each story is a remarkable package of all this and more." -- Amazon reviewer

Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster: her widowed mother just married a long-time family friend. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone's life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan's looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.

But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.

Sam Reynolds doesn't need excitement, and he doesn't want romance. Fun is out of the question. He's been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.

When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won't be easy. Sam's tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change. . .maybe more than he can handle.

Nobody ever said love was simple.

263 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 40 reviews.
