Killer Pursuit: An Allison McNeil Thriller, by Jeff Gunhus. (Still 0.99?)

"This is one of the best crime thrillers I have ever read. The story line is exciting! There is political intrigue, murder, black mail, and edge of your seat action. The writing is superb, no detail was too small, every word meant something to the story. The characters and the story are brought to life in such a way you forget this is a work of fiction. I even learned some history about Arlington Cemetery that blew me away! Writing this good really excites me, I can't recommend this book enough. This is the first book I have read by Mr. Gunhus, but it won't be my last, he is an author to watch!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Meet FBI Special Agent Allison McNeil. Smart. Tough. Flawed. Unstoppable.

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection...

...and no-one knows who's on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder.

The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but the rumors that the victim's client list may have included Mason's political enemies has Allison doubting the director's motives.

Balancing her care for her father suffering from Alzheimer's disease and her grief over the recent death of the man she loved, Allison launches her investigation to solve the murder.

But she quickly discovers that she's not the only one pursuing the videos. 
 
In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.

The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky, by David Litwack. (Still 0.99?)

"The characters were well written and easily relatable. The setting was unique and interesting. I loved the division of the two countries. The author does an incredible job of detailing how different groups of people see themselves and each other. David Litwack seems to have an ingrained understanding of how different people view the world around them. It is always interesting to me how multiple people can view the same event and draw vastly different conclusions from it. " -- Amazon Reviewer


"...a fully imagined, gripping read...." - Kirkus Reviews

The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack

Evolved Publishing presents the literary saga of a young girl plucked from the sea under mysterious circumstances, in "The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky" by David Litwack, award-winning author of There Comes a Prophet and Along the Watchtower. [DRM-Free]

[Literary, Saga, Speculative] Though written for adults, this book is suitable for readers as young as 13.

After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.
Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena's plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.
These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena's home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.
But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever... and perhaps their world as well.
Be sure to check out David Litwack's new dystopian sci-fi series The Seekers, beginning with The Children of Darkness (now available). Then watch for the second book in the series, The Stuff of Stars, to release November 30, 2015.

Billy Martin: Baseball's Flawed Genius, by Bill Pennington. (Still 2.99?)

"This book was a page-turner for me - I got so wrapped up in it that I put life aside and read the last two hundred pages in one sitting. It reads like a novel, but it is one man's life - and it was a fascinating one! " -- Amazon Reviewer


  
The definitive biography of one of baseball’s most celebrated, mercurial, and misunderstood figures 
   
Billy Martin is a story of contrasts. He was the clutch second baseman for the dominant New York Yankees of the 1950s. He then spent sixteen seasons managing in the big leagues, and is considered by anyone who knows baseball to have been a true baseball genius, a field manager without peer. Yet he’s remembered more for his habit of kicking dirt on umpires, for being hired and fired by George Steinbrenner five times, and for his rabble rousing and public brawls. He was combative, fiery, intimidating, and controversial, yet beloved by the everyday fan. He was hard on his players and even harder on himself. He knew how to turn around a losing team like no one else—and how to entertain us every step of the way.

Now, with his definitive biography Billy Martin, Pennington finally erases the caricature of Martin. Drawing on exhaustive interviews with friends, family, teammates, and countless adversaries, Pennington paints an indelible portrait of a man who never backed down for the game he loved. From his shantytown upbringing in a broken home; to his days playing for the Yankees when he almost always helped his team find a way to win; through sixteen years of managing, including his tenure in New York in the crosshairs of Steinbrenner and Reggie Jackson, Billy Martin made sure no one ever ignored him. And indeed no one could. He was the hero, the antihero, and the alter ego—or some combination of all three—for his short sixty-one years among us.
