Nothing good ever happens on Saturday nights.

A dead body’s been discovered near the lagoon in Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the city’s largest tourist attractions. The Superintendent of police and Mayor are screaming for a quick resolution before the media creates a frenzy.

Sharp twists and unexpected turns force the detectives to put personal animosity aside when another girl goes missing. With the suspect pool quickly eroding, Sam follows a hunch that leads her to the killer’s lair and brings her face to face with a mad man determined to make her his next victim.

When Natalie and Anna, sisters and life-long rivals, hide an abandoned child from the Nazis, their deception resurrects the scars of a star-crossed love triangle that threats their safety and tests the bonds of their loyalty.

Hungary's fragile alliance with Germany insured that Natalie, a renowned children's book author, and her family would be safe as the war raged through Europe. But, as the F├╝hrer's desperation grows in the waning years of the conflict, neighbors now become traitors.   

Beautiful but troubled Anna, poet and university professor, is losing her tenuous hold on reality, re-igniting a sibling rivalry that began with a poetry contest in childhood. It boils over when Deszo, Anna's unrequited love, re-enters their lives with a promise of safety.  

As the streets of Budapest thrum with the pounding boots of Nazi soldiers, danger creeps to the doorstep and the sisters' disintegrating relationship threatens to expose the child they are trying to protect. In one night, Anna's rash behavior destroys their carefully made plans of escape, and Natalie is presented with a desperate decision. 

 Interwoven with Natalie and Anna's story, is Mila's. The abandoned child whose future Natalie lovingly imagines in a story called Mrs. Tuesday's Departure.

 A story that takes on a life of its own fifty years later.    

Mrs. Tuesday's Departure is a haunting tale of un-requited love and the un-breakable bonds of sisters.

Vertical Gardening – Don Evans

Rating – G
4.3 (5 reviews)
Free until 9 November 2012
Vertical Gardening - Bountiful Harvest in Small Places was written by Don Evans, an avid gardener who enjoys things a little "different" in his garden. It's concise and simple, with detailed plans and clear instructions on vertical garden design, (a form of container planting), that can be built from everyday materials found in any backyard and local hardware shop - materials that certainly won't break the bank.

Inside you'll find...

The Idea Behind Vertical Gardening
Whether it's a focal point in an existing garden landscaping layout, or as a means to enjoy gardening in tight spaces.
Buying a Vertical Tower - the things to look for, and the additional items you may need.
How to build a Flower Tower - An inexpensive, easy to maintain and colorful garden tower that will surely be the focal point in your garden, & the envy of all your visitors.
How to build a Strawberry Tower - Enjoy unlimited fresh Strawberry's, and enough for the entire family, all from the harvest of just one of these beauty's.
How to build a Fresh Herb Tower - Imagine enjoying the freshest of fresh herbs right from out your back door. No more dried herbs for you, after all nothing beats fresh!
How to Build a Vegetable Tower - Yes, you can grow vegetables vertically, but of course you have to pick your species. (Plan on buying your sweet corn from the market still - some plants of course aren't meant to be grown in a tower!)
Building a Potato Tower - Turn a handful of seed potatoes into 20 lbs of fresh potatoes in an area of no more than two square feet!
Vertical Gardening - Bountiful Harvest in Small Places is great for all gardeners who are looking for ideas to brighten up an existing garden, maybe create awesome Flower Tower sentinels to grace a deck, or for those looking for some fresh herbs perhaps, but have limited space. The ultimate in container gardens. The possibilities are endless.

The Geronimo Breach – Russell Blake
Genre – Action, Adventure
Rating – PG13
4.5 (59 reviews)
Free until 8 November 2012
The Geronimo Breach is a breakneck-paced thrill ride that pits the world's most unlikely protagonist against the deadliest  adversaries on the planet. From the corridors of Langley to the sweltering jungles of Panama, from the hills of Pakistan to the cocaine trails of Colombia, a clandestine scheme to preserve a terrible secret goes horribly awry, plunging a reluctant hero down a deadly rabbit hole of deceit and betrayal, while raising disturbing questions about the media, the war on terror & its linkage with the war on drugs, & the nature of reality in an age of sound-bites and photo ops.

Albert Ross is a malingering misanthrope - a boozing, chain smoking philanderer; shifty, lazy, cowardly, going to fat, & more prone to doing the wrong thing than any man alive. His purgatorial existence working for the State Department in Panama gets shattered when a routine errand becomes a race against the clock, battling adversaries for whom no price is too high to protect a secret that could topple the world order. As the body count climbs in a struggle without rules, Al must face his own demons, as well as the myriad very real ones intent upon destroying him. The unexpectedly shattering conclusion of this richly drawn thriller is both topical & chillingly plausible, making for a roller-coaster action/adventure without parallel.

Somehow, she's grown four furry legs complimented with a large wolf head and body. Scared and alone, she reaches out to Quinn and a strong bond is formed. Jazira learns Quinn, and his mother, are threatened by a wealthy powerful citizen of Bandit Creek. She is determined to protect her new family, no matter what.

Monsters do not exist. There is nothing hiding in your closet waiting for the lights to dim and your eyes to close. Santa Claus isn't real, and neither is the Tooth Fairy.

From the lips of parents to the ears of their maturing children, these confessions have been passed down from generation to generation. Marcus believed in the world's magic, and was crushed after learning it was a lie. With no good deeds rewarded, or bad behavior punished, he wandered through life destined for mediocrity.

That was before he awoke in a world surrounded by mythical beings, and thrust into a conflict between humans and the nightmares they created.

With his home world on the brink of destruction, and the population of legends losing their grip on sanity, Marcus has little time to bring peace between the opposing factions. Aided by an unlikely band of "fictitious" creatures, he reluctantly sets out to unravel the mysteries of Godsworld.

Lou Diamond is known for being the best field agent around in the Los Angeles Police Department's elite division, the Office of Special Services. The OSS, quite simply, gets the worst crime jobs on the planet-and Lou Diamond, at one time or another, has seen them all. An ex-tactical assault agent with Special Weapons and Tactics, Diamond has enjoyed a near one hundred percent success rate in solving any crime, anywhere.

But when lawyers suddenly end up mysteriously dying at his brother's prestigious law firm, the evidence to be found is wanting in every way. The suspects in Lou Diamond's book are all dirty in some way, but all clear of the suspicion of murder. As the body count continues to grow at the firm he is investigating, so to does Diamond's belief that the murderer at large is killing with a purpose other than personal revenge.

Things become more complicated still when he meets one of the firm's most powerful partners, the beautiful and alluring, Linda Baylor. Compelled into a bizarre, sexual relationship with Baylor, Diamond begins to have a terrible suspicion that there is a gray area between sex, trust and blood. And that at the end of the day, nothing is as it seems-and no one is who they claim to be.

Lou Diamond comes to understand that the end result of such ambiguity is death.

Growing up, Lisa Reynolds was expected to be "perfect" in everything she did from grades to career to the social status of the men in her life. She denied her own nature, her own heart, to be what others wanted her to be. But despite the perfection Lisa portrayed to outsiders, the state of her home life was filled with ugliness.

Tony Santos had been a major league baseball player but now finds his days of glory are gone. He's back home to raise his son as a single dad. As a teenager, he loved Lisa, but to her, the poor son of a Mexican ranch hand could never be more than a friend. Yet, he was the one person who understood and accepted her as she truly was. He never forgot her, but also never forgave her.

When Lisa, who is now known as "Lee" Reynolds, nationally known TV news anchor, returns to her home town to sell her deceased mother's home, she never expects to find Tony there.

Both of them have changed a lot. Yet, being with him, she finds that in her heart, it seems like old times...
