Free and bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday May 13)

Random Lucidity, by Dave Adair. (Still 0.99?)

"A fascinating book with an unpredictable end. Although there are a lot of unusual turns and twists, the transitions between one storyline to another are smooth and it is easy to follow this remarkable narrative. There are no wasted scenes. The author skillfully leads Reggie through his struggles between love, loyalty, and his desire to succeed. Read the book to find out how Reggie's miracle turns out, you'll feel for him." -- Portland Book Review, 4.5 Stars

A struggling literary agent believes he hits it big when he discovers a mentally challenged man scribbling a world-class murder mystery into ragged notebooks in the park. Ignoring all of the red flags about this man and his all-too-real story, Reggie risks all he has to bring that story to the masses, not the least of which is his relationship with the stunning Meghan James.

Random Lucidity, a suspenseful literary thriller set in modern day Chicago, puts Reggie’s life and the murderous rants of a troubled man on paths that are destined to intersect. Along the way, Reggie is faced with impossible choices about love and ambition, and the challenges that confront us all eventually.

257 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 28 reviews.

Exit Stage Left (Kempston Hardwick Mysteries Book 1), by Adam Croft. (Still free?)

"This novella can comfortably be read in a couple of hours. Adam Croft has an excellent writing style. It is certainly an easy read and it wasn't until I'd almost reached the end - 93 per cent through the story to be exact! - that I had a light bulb moment and worked out exactly how the murder had been committed. A very clever piece of writing!" -- Amazon reviewer

Charlie Sparks brought a whole new meaning to dying on stage...

Charlie Sparks had it all. A former primetime television personality, his outdated style has seen him relegated to the scrapheap.

When he collapses and dies during a stand-up routine at a local pub, mysterious bystander Kempston Hardwick is compelled to investigate his suspicious death.

As Hardwick begins to unravel the mystery, he quickly comes to realise that Charlie Sparks's death throws up more peculiar questions than answers.

 
The first Kempston Hardwick mystery

Exit Stage Left has been adapted as a radio play, starring Robert Daws (The Royal, Jeeves & Wooster, Outside Edge), Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners) and Ted Robbins (Phoenix Nights, Little Britain).

"Adam Croft is one of the best new writers in Britain." - Stephen Leather

126 pages, with a 3.8-star rating from 15 reviews.





November Echo, by James Houston Turner. (Still 2.99?)

"Hard to put down, November Echo hits the ground running ... constant action and new characters integrated flawlessly. Exceptional and refreshingly told." -- Kat Toland, IndieReader

Every spy has a beginning, and for Colonel Aleksandr Talanov of the KGB, that moment occurs one summery night in 1985 on the Costa del Sol, at the height of Cold War tensions between the Americans and Soviets.

As a signatory to the Biological Weapons Treaty of 1972, the United States had already destroyed its military stockpiles of weaponized pathogens. The Soviet Union, however, responded differently to the signing of that treaty. They created a network of forty-seven top-secret production facilities spread across Russia. Called Biopreparat, it was the largest biological weapons program in history.

So when a scientist from one of those facilities decides to defect, Talanov has the assigned task of bringing him back. But after tracking the scientist and his family to Spain, Talanov is betrayed and the scientist and his family are murdered.

The only survivor is their teenage daughter, Noya -- short for Noyabŕ -- in English, "November" -- and what happens in an impulsive moment changes the course of Talanov's life by placing him in a desperate race to save Noya from the deadliest and most vicious adversary he will ever encounter: the KGB.

298 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 66 reviews.

Death Takes A Trip (Julia Blake Cozy Mystery Book 5), by Gillian Larkin. (Still free?)

"I like people giving second chances and those who are grateful for the that chance. Although you might think many of these characters are greedy in one way or another, the final show of greed was the worst. As I'm sure Julia was disappointed with this character, I was too. But it made a good ending." -- Amazon reviewer

Julia Blake runs her own cleaning business. She has the unfortunate knack of getting herself involved in murder investigations.

When one of Julia’s elderly clients, Douglas Pedley, is found dead at the bottom of his stairs, it is soon obvious that he was murdered.
Julia first suspects the building contractors who have been hounding Douglas to sell his land and property. It’s not long before another suspect appears. 


Julia is determined to find out who murdered the old man.

132 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 4 reviews.
