Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Great series! I loved these books! I've read the entire series and greatly enjoyed each one. Burnside and Gail are characters I would like to know in real life. Not a swear word, no drunks, no explicit sex scenes, just a good read. Do yourself a favor and start with the first novel. I sure hope David Chill continues this series. I signed up on his web site so will be notified when he next releases a book." -- Amazon reviewer

A man with a shady past and no moral compass is accused of trying to kill his business partner.

He has plenty of motive and no alibi. In desperate need of help, he turns to Private Investigator Burnside. Despite their checkered history, Burnside, the former football star and LAPD officer, is intrigued enough to take the case.

As Burnside probes into the man's seamy world, he uncovers much more than he anticipated. From former clients to spurned lovers to angry underworld figures, there are many people who harbor reasons to commit murder. With many avenues to go down, Burnside doggedly pursues an investigation that confounds everyone involved, and also leads the police to suspect Burnside himself of a capital crime.

Combining an intricate plot with compelling characters, Burnside goes down yet another treacherous path. Fraught with wry humor, the unexpected climax of the story will take readers by surprise -- in more ways than one.

The Keeper, by R. L. Mosz. (Still 0.99?)

"This is an engaging story about our misconceptions about social position, medicine, and love, and the choices we must make. There's a colorful cast of characters, from the elite to the scruffy. Caitlin is an unusual young woman, quiet and humble, yet strong and determined when she encounters the world of modern medicine and the privileged class. Her simple life becomes complicated after she meets wealthy, successful surgeon Dr. Seacrest, who lives in the fast lane but must slow down to confront his past. I enjoyed this straightforward book about contemporary and age-old problems." -- Amazon reviewer

The Keeper is a thought-provoking contemporary drama that explores the mysterious power of friendship and love. The atypical romance within this PG-rated novel weaves its way through a psychological story of human relationships and social satire.

The protagonist, Dr. Christopher Seacrest, is chief of staff in a renowned medical facility and is one of the world’s shining stars. Immersed in his self-sufficiency and false ideals of perfection, he lives immune to the fact that he has somehow disavowed life itself. A brief patient-doctor meeting in an exam room between the arrogant Chris and the unpretentious Caitlin Rosenberry soon changes all of that.

Initially the powerhouse surgeon finds little of interest to him in the young, post-stroke patient, but their meeting results in the physician’s perfect façade developing a hairline crack. Fate brings the unlikely pair together again and again, and sets a series of cataclysmic events into motion from which there is no turning back. When Dr. Seacrest finds himself in love with Caitlin and she vows never to see him again, he can no longer deny life’s invitation to his own healing.

250 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 33 reviews.

Consequences: Book 1 of the Consequences Series, by Aleatha Romig. (Still free?)

"Bravo to Ms. Romig for shocking the heck out of me. I never saw the ending coming. If someone saw me reading the last 25% of this book, they saw someone with their mouth hanging open." -- The Fiction Vixon

Book #1 of the bestselling Consequences series:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a suspenseful thriller about secrets and deception, passion and love, choices and consequences.

Every action has consequences.

Waking in an unfamiliar bedroom in a luxurious mansion, Claire Nichols is terrified to discover that a chance encounter led her into the cruel hands of her abductor, Anthony Rawlings. Claire has no understanding of why she’s there, but it’s been made abundantly clear—she is now his acquisition and every action has consequences.

Learn the rules to survive.

Facing incomprehensible circumstances, Claire must learn to survive her new reality—every aspect of her livelihood depends upon the tall, dark-eyed tycoon who is a true master of deception. Driven by unknown demons, he has no tolerance for imperfection, in any aspect of his life, including his recent acquisition. Anthony may appear to the world as a handsome, benevolent businessman, but in reality Claire knows firsthand that he’s a menacing, controlling captor with very strict rules: do as you’re told, public failure is not an option, and appearances are of the utmost importance.

Captivate the captor.

To fit together the pieces of the puzzle, Claire must follow his rules. Will her plan work, or will Anthony become enthralled by Claire’s beauty, resilience, and determination, changing the game forever? If that happens, will either of them survive the consequences?

Nobody ever did or ever will escape the consequences of his choices.—Alfred A. Montapert

It would have been much easier if I had a book like this early in my management career. But, YOU do have it. For a small price you can benefit from my experience, knowledge and advice.
