Mash Up, by Joe Klingler. (Still 0.99?)

"I know I love a book when I intentionally slow my reading down, so the book doesn't 't have to end. Mash Up has something in it for everyone; the tech lover, the music lover, the suspense lover and the romance lover. On a deeper level still, the author delves into the problems created by access to the digital world of music and art and the evolving issues of technological pirating. Questions every person must answer themselves; just because everyone is doing it, does it make it right?" -- Amazon Reviewer

"A classic addition to the noir genre."--San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 Stars)

When a suspect dies on his watch, failure pushes Alaskan detective Qigiq to San Francisco--the land of magical technology--to regroup. His new fast-driving partner, Kandy Dreeson, calls at dawn: a beautiful avant-garde violinist is at the station freaking out about an Amazon box--and her missing roommate. Thus begins the hunt for a killer who leaves behind a torrent of body parts, videos of heinous crimes, and deadly explosions.

Qigiq and Kandy enter a world of cybercrime he doesn't understand--but is determined to master. Dodging attempts on their lives with each new bit they decipher, they grow ever closer to a dangerous force that trades money for murder, and music for privacy. Closer with each Amazon delivery. Closer with each new victim.

Suspenseful and grisly with humor and seduction, Mash Up is a riveting read of intertwined action from the first sentence. High-speed chase suspenseful, exploding with power-struggle intrigue, and awash in Silicon Valley innovation; Mash Up captures the enchantment of the Internet Age, and the deadly power of a file copy.

"Klingler's new thriller is a ride into the dark side of computers and comedy...definitely has a Quentin Tarantino-feel to it."--SFBR
"A thoughtful, well-constructed tale."--Kirkus Reviews

Scandalous Intentions (Ladies and Scoundrels Book 2), by Amanda Mariel. (Still 0.99?)

"This was a fun and charming Regency romance. Julian is an acknowledged rake, but now he is being forced by his father to get married or he will lose his inheritance. He sets his sights on the Lady Sarah, and while she might attracted to him then she’s very wary of his reputation and determined to marry only for love. It was an enjoyable read, with likeable characters and it kept my interest throughout. If you’re a fan of historical romance I would recommend." -- Amazon Reviewer

Suspenseful, complex and original, page-turners with a soul." Lisa Unger
