Murder in the Mind (Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates Book 6), by Bruce Beckham. (Still free?)

""Murder in the Mind", as all all Bruce Beckham books, is very well written. Author's style combines in perfect harmony such rarely seen together literary elements as a lyricism, sense of humor, and thoughtfulness, He is equally good in creating complex characters, vivid scenery, and highly suspenseful twisted plots. I am convinced that Bruce Beckham is a master of Whodunit in a classical English tradition of the genre." -- Amazon Reviewer

WHEN DI SKELGILL IS CALLED to an isolated maximum-security hospital, he catches the eye of a notorious female serial killer. Is this the trigger that turns a routine investigation into a rollercoaster of murder, mayhem, escapes and hostage taking?

Are these events purely coincidental, or is some conspiracy afoot? And if so, is it blackmail, corruption, a power struggle... or something altogether more sinister?

In this, the sixth stand-alone Inspector Skelgill mystery, while search teams comb the moorland for clues, the maverick Cumbrian detective finds his mental sinews stretched to the limit as he strives to solve the case.

RATS, by Joe Klingler. (Still 0.99?)

"Don't start this book if you have to be somewhere in 15 minutes. You'll be late! I was immediately drawn in by the story and the characters, and was always kept wondering what would happen next. The use of technology was educational and believable, even if the programming skills of one of the characters is well beyond anything I've seen in my career! Finally, the social message of interfering with the affairs of another sovereign state, and not cleaning up the mess you made, is one that never gets stale. Highly recommended!" -- Amazon Reviewer

2015 International Book Awards - Finalist Thriller/Adventure
One man on a decades old mission. A woman who hunts him. And the bullet they share--RATS explodes from the remnants of a war long past to current headlines hiding Washington secrets when two modern-day warriors face off. Both skilled at violence. And deception. Both accustomed to winning.
"Joe Klingler's novel is an intelligent non-stop page turner." Manhattan Book Review (5 Star)
Summer greets the land of the midnight sun as a lone rider races across the last American wilderness, delivering on a promise he made long ago. He has many names, but the world only knows a shadow called the Demon.
Claire Ferreti, an Army sniper eager for her first black-ops mission, sips sake in Washington D.C. with her lover, a young, ambitious General whose geosecurity specialty remains classified. When a boy finds a small machine, Claire and the Demon embark on a collision course that leads to a test of skill, a clash of ideologies, and Claire's unconscious body lying in a typhoon-ravaged jungle. In that instant she becomes the hunted, the Demon's tool for survival, and an unforeseen threat. As the General pursues them through a labyrinth of lies, and a war-torn jungle, political necessity and financial reality collide like a fireball piercing steel.

"Klingler's debut offers a deep logistical jungle sure to entertain buffs and newcomers to the techno-thriller genre. Throughout, he displays fierce writing chops. Short chapters balance action and subterfuge with political thought targeted keenly at modern drone warfare."--Kirkus Reviews (Recommended List)

"Now, dog lovers and mystery lovers, you'll love this fast, fun read by Dianne Harman. Kelly, our heroine, owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, and Mike, sheriff of Beaver County, return from Cuba only to learn that the owner of Doggie Love Kennel has been killed -- more precisely, murdered and all the dogs turned loose.

Seven time Amazon All Star author Dianne Harman with her latest book in the best selling Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series

Mike, the sheriff of Beaver County, Oregon and his wife Kelly, the
owner of Kelly’s Koffee Shop, have just returned from a fly fishing
trip to Cuba. On the drive home from the airport Mike gets a call
informing him that the owner of Doggie Love Kennel, where they had
boarded their dogs when they were in Cuba, has been murdered. To make
matters worse, all of the dogs in the kennel, including Rebel and
Lady, have been released and are running loose in the surrounding
area. They immediately begin to search for their dogs as well as
trying to determine who killed Mary Barnes.

They have plenty of suspects to choose from: the druggie kennel
employee; the owner of the award winning Yorkie that was impregnated
while staying at the kennel; the disgruntled head of the Pit Bull
Sanctuary who was instructed by the owner of the kennel to get his pit
bulls off of the property within twenty-four hours; the impoverished
woman whose property is next to the luxurious kennel and is jealous of
the dogs being boarded there; the kennel manager; and her husband who
has anger issues. Will Mike and Kelly find the killer before the
killer comes after them? And what about the dog named Skyy? Is she
cute enough to make Mike rethink his decision to only have two dogs?
Can she worm her way into his heart?

This is the ninth book in the bestselling Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery
Series. Find out more at www.DianneHarman.com

26 Miles to the Moon: The Great Space Race Is On!, by Andrew Males. (Still free?)

"The book was so entertaining, it honestly makes you think about those rare changes in life that you may have, which could change your entire world. How you should take them, and not settle for sitting at a desk job just because it’s “conventional”. This story also teaches us that we should always root for the under dog, especially when we feel like we ARE the under dog. We can do more than we think!" -- Amazon Reviewer


10 Hopefuls. 26 Miles. 1 Target: The Moon.

Jon Dunn is a nobody, going nowhere in life. But that all changes when he answers a random email that puts him on a journey that'll take him so far out of his comfort zone, he'll need a telescope just to look back at it.

Escaping from his increasingly demented boss is the easy bit. Running naked from the law at a top tourist attraction and surviving training from a sadistic instructor will be more difficult.

Billionaire Doug Peabody wants to send mankind's first rocket to the Moon in decades. He's even created a competition to win a seat on it... providing his ex-friend Dmitri doesn't sabotage his already-threadbare plans and beat him to it.

Can Jon stop the evil, win-at-all-costs Nicki?

And can he really trust Summer, the girl with the yo-yo halo?

From the London skyline to the punishing bridges of the New York City Marathon, Jon and nine other going-nowheres are branded like cattle and put through the challenge and pain of a competition for the most exciting prize the world has ever seen.

The Great Space Race is on!
