Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Thumbs up! Excellent read! The characters are fun and witty. If you enjoy authors like James Patterson, you will enjoy this book. Atta Boy to this new author. I am looking forward to the next adventure of Galveston and crew." -- Amazon reviewer

An incredible invention goes missing, and two new detectives are on the case - what could possibly go wrong?

Murphy and Galveston realize there must be more to life than their mind-numbing cubical jobs. Over a barbeque lunch, Galveston attempts to convince his friend to join him in a daring new career as a private investigator. With nothing to lose, Murphy reluctantly agrees. Relying heavily on their humorous wit and questionable tactics, the men employ a creative approach to their investigations. For a time these methods prove successful, until they push too far and find themselves mired in the case of a lifetime.

An explosion rocks a New England university lab, setting off a carefully orchestrated chain of events. A small device has been stolen, a key to the entire world's energy problems and the power that comes with controlling it. The fate of the device and its inventor lays with the newly self-proclaimed private detectives.

The two men, under the threat of arrest by the FBI, begin to criss-cross the country and the world, picking up clues to the puzzle of the missing device in England, Mexico, and even Brazil. Dead ends seem at every turn, but with the help of an outcast computer expert, a British spy and former flame of Galveston's, and a new employee whom Murphy can't seem to keep his eyes off of, the investigators unwind the case using their unorthodox approach, berating each other at every turn.

Who is looking to control this device and its destiny? Is it the huge multinational security firm, a devious billionaire, or a questionable member of Congress. Murphy and Galveston must find out why something so small is causing problems so large, because the hunters are quickly becoming the hunted.

Worth the Fall (Brew Ha Ha #2), by Caitie Quinn. (Still 0.99?)

On sale, this week only!

"Sweet, oddly endearing, and genuinely rib-achingly funny. Though the main focus here is on the relationship between Kasey and Max, the storyline revolves around both the Brew-Ha-Ha coffee shop and the entire cast of quirky characters. This title works quite well as a stand-alone. The snippets of John & Sarah, Jenna & Ben add very nice background elements to this story. Their interactions--as well as the quality of writing--have caused me to add yet more titles to my never-ending To Be Read pile." -- Amazon reviewer

*** 2015 Romance Writers of America® RITA Finalist ***

On sale this week to celebrate the RITAs.

Kasey Lane is having a bad week.

Understatement.

Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it's time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and...no men.

But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn't help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone...or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.

A Garland for Ashes: World War II, the Holocaust, and One Jewish Survivor's Long Journey to Forgiveness, by Hanna Zack Miley. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"This sweet woman's account of her journey as a 6-year-old on one of the last Kindertransports out of Germany through the realization that her parent's had been holocaust victims was very moving. Her writing is beautiful-- filled with meaningful metaphors and her journey into a ministry of understanding, remembrance and forgiveness of the German people is amazing." -- Amazon reviewer

Torn from Her Homeland …
Her Parents Murdered …
How Could She Cope?

When little Hannelore (Hanna) Zack left Cologne, Germany, on a train bound for London as a seven-year-old Mädchen (young girl) on July 24, 1939, she had no way of knowing that she was part of the Kindertransport, an epic rescue effort that would save 10,000 Jewish children from Hitler’s Nazi regime by granting them safe passage to England. 


In the coming years, Hanna would learn the painful truth: after being stripped of their business, forced from their Zuhause (home), and deported to endure six months of inhumane conditions in the Lodz Ghetto, her parents were gassed in a brutally efficient killing operation in a remote forested area near Chelmno, Poland, on May 3, 1942. 

Written over a four-year period beginning when Hanna was about seventy-five years old, A Garland for Ashes is both a gripping detective story recounting the heartbreaking process of discovering her family’s fate and a poignant account of her journey from vengeful hatred to forgiveness and release from bitterness.

298 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 57 reviews.

Stiff Arm Steal (Miami Jones Florida Mystery Series Book 1), by A.J. Stewart. (Still free?)

"If you enjoy the Myron Bolitar character from Harlan Coben or Jack Reacher from Lee Child, then downloading or purchasing this book should be a no-brainer. The author provides a plot with sufficient twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and a lead character that is interesting but not (yet) bogged down with back story baggage. The premise of this story, the theft of a Heisman trophy, is intriguing and the author provides sufficient explanation for readers unfamiliar with NCAA football. " -- Amazon reviewer

A #1 Mystery on Amazon

The prize possession of former football hero, part-time media personality and full-time blowhard BJ Baker has been stolen from his palatial Palm Beach home. Baker has called in the Mayor, the police, the sheriff and everyone else he can co-opt into the search. But if he really wants the person who can find it, one name keeps coming up. Miami Jones. Problem is, he can't stand Jones. And the feeling is mutual.

Miami takes on a jealous husband, a feisty ex-con and a police detective desperate to claim everyone else's 15 minutes of fame, and he finds that Florida is home to so many retired athletes he could start a pensioner football league. But can Miami hunt down the culprit before they graduate from theft to something far more deadly?

272 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 155 reviews.
