Ethan Justice: Origins (Ethan Justice - A Private Investigator Series Book 1), by Simon Jenner. (Still free?)

""I was very pleasantly reminded of the old noir tales. Action, drama, and romance well seasoned with sarcastic humor ... the antagonist, 'He's too twisted for color TV!'" -- Jim Wright, Author of New Yesterdays

In the morning, he's struggling to remember. By the evening, he's struggling to survive. John Smith's risk avoidance policy just expired!

Waking up beside the gorgeous Savannah Jones, John is shocked to learn she was for hire, and he can't pay the price - a thousand pounds or broken legs. In desperation, he turns to best friend, Mark, for the money. Only one problem - Mark has a dagger in his back.

John and Savannah are plunged into a dangerous world where wits and adrenaline are their only weapons and trust in each other their only certainty. As the body count mounts, they discover Mark wasn't the person John thought, and his terrifying invention may well end up killing thousands, John and Savannah included.

A race to recover the missing invention pits the unlikely pairing against ex-SAS psychopath, Gregory Fisher, a man who will stop at nothing and kill anyone in his way to wreak revenge against the Government who stole his livelihood.

When Smith and Jones team up, the result is explosive.

Ethan Justice: Origins is a fast-paced, action-packed, character-driven crime thriller, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud, cringe, cry and cheer.

This is the first book in the 'Ethan Justice' private investigator series but it also reads as a stand-alone novel.

This book contains a few violent scenes, a dash of sex and the odd bit of bad language, so please don't buy it if you are easily offended.

247 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 170 reviews.

Cars, Cats and Crooks (The Kimble Detective Agency Book 1), by R H Carter. (Still free?)

"Good mystery! Can't wait for the next installment. This is an unusually written book and a good mystery. I spent a lot of the first few pages laughing and the last pages breathless." -- Amazon reviewer

Ever Dreamt Of Becoming A Private Detective? - Peyton Has!

Peyton Kimble is 42 years old and has recently been made redundant from his boring dead end job at an independent car factory in Chester, UK. What should he do next with his life?
Become a private detective, of course!

Although the answer is obvious to the imaginative and intelligent Peyton, who feels like he’s been waiting for this opportunity all his life, his other half, Sherri, initially thinks he’s having some sort of mid-life crisis. But with the support of his sister Ros and her eighteen year old lazy, but clever drop-out son, Jackson Chadwick – who soon becomes Peyton’s assistant – the 'Kimble Detective Agency' takes off with a bang!

Their first case is the mystery of Mrs Boggins’ missing cat, a seemingly simple, boring and childish investigation which actually ends up being a little more complicated than they initially imagined, and lands them an article in the local paper after their heroic rescue of poor Speckles.

But when Gordon Tate turns up dead, Peyton and Jackson are drawn into an entirely more sinister world that will change both their lives forever. The police rule the death as a suicide, but Peyton and Jackson have other ideas.
Will The Outcome Be A Total Success?

With all the evidence stacked against them and even the police turning their backs, can Peyton and Jackson prove that this was something more than a simple suicide?

The revelations, they uncover, will turn Peyton's entire family upside down, dredging up old secrets and scandals from the past that most thought were long buried and forgotten.

245 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 100 reviews.





THE VAST LANDSCAPE, by Jacqueline Cioffa. (Still 4.99?)

"The reader senses early on that the writing of the book is a labor that likely netted the author a great deal of satisfaction -- perhaps like the deep sigh a person releases after a long-awaited accomplishment is achieved and is finally ticked off life's to-do list." -- The Citizen

The Vast Landscape is a journey, a pilgrimage, a walk filled with doubt, mistrust, fame, self-discovery and a life lived, big and bold. The carnival ride comes full circle. The Vast Landscape sucks you in from the very first page and keeps you there, holding your breath. Harrison, the complicated, fearless, brash, messy heroine on her quest to find inner peace in spite of her flaws. Raw, emotional, honest to a fault, The Vast Landscape keeps you guessing and wanting more.
A love story so bittersweet it leaves an acrid taste in the mouth and teardrops made out of sea salt. Can Harrison strip away the armor? Unmask the beautiful person hiding all along? It’s a simple question. All roads lead back to, Zack.

216 pages, with a 5.0-star rating from 29 reviews.

With Every Letter (Wings of the Nightingale Book #1): A Novel, by Sarah Sundin. (Still free?)

"This book spoke to my very soul. Its themes of forgiveness and restoration brought great lessons without hitting the reader over the head with them. With Every Letter is an excellent example of how two people struggle to overcome their respective upbringings, come through victorious and find love in the process." -- Amazon reviewer

They know everything about each other--except their real names.
 

Lt. Mellie Blake is looking forward to beginning her training as a flight nurse. She is not looking forward to writing a letter to a man she's never met--even if it is anonymous and part of a morale-building program. Lt. Tom MacGilliver, an officer stationed in North Africa, welcomes the idea of an anonymous correspondence--he's been trying to escape his infamous name for years.

As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, Tom and Mellie develop a unique friendship despite not knowing the other's true identity. When both are transferred to Algeria, the two are poised to meet face-to-face for the first time. Will they overcome their fears and reveal who they are, or will their future be held hostage by their pasts?

Combining a flair for romance with excellent research and attention to detail, Sarah Sundin vividly brings to life the perilous challenges of WWII aviation, nursing--and true love.

425 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 306 reviews.
