Dinner at Deadman's (Lorado Martin Mysteries)
Dinner at Deadman’s - C.J. West
Genre - Mystery
Rating - PG13
4.2 (14 reviews)
Free until 8 February 2013
Lorado Martin has loved junk since his grandparents took him bottle digging in the backwoods of New England when he was a boy. The search for antiques and collectibles led him to a unique hobby: digging through the estates of the newly deceased, arranging the sale of goods for the heirs, and keeping the leftovers for himself.

To make a living he builds and maintains housing for recovering heroin addicts and along the way he’s employed a number of his clients. The men wrestle with the siren call of drugs and teach Lorado about the difficult struggle to stay clean one day at a time. 

When these two worlds come together, Lorado learns that not every elderly person dies of natural causes and that some estates are sold to benefit a killer. His latest project hits close to home. A woman he’s known since childhood haunts him from a fresh grave. Her grandson, an affable addict who has fallen off the wagon, stands to inherit a considerable sum whether he deserves it or not.

Social Media Holocaust
Social Media Holocaust - Brian Krogstand & Damien Darby
Genre - Thriller
Rating - PG13
4.0 (19 reviews)
Free until 8 February 2013
Social Media Holocaust brings you to the precipice and keeps you there, contemplating  whether or not you have the courage to log in again!  A gritty technothriller, engineered by Brian Krogstad and Damien Darby, it makes you think twice about using the net.  Billions of people access social media sites across the digital sphere every day, and yet they stayed fairly harmless; until now. What if these pixilated parts of our lives weren't risk-free anymore, but matters of life and death? What if the secret unprecedented threat they represent simply went largely unnoticed?

Murder, horror, tyranny, and Marshal Law... What evil lurks behind the likes, tags, shares, and the mask?  Killers begin to come after us at random from Facebook, and before you know it, our cultures are unraveling. For no apparent reason at all, you receive a friend request from a mysterious masked stranger. Do you accept it, or ignore and deny it? You'd better think hard because in this story, the consequences for you and your friends list can be grisly. Advanced readers are already likening this dark fantasy to the heavy hitters in the genre, dripping with creepy paranoid overtones that thrill and terrify.

Explore a scenario where Social Media becomes a vehicle for apocalyptic scenarios, globalized murder, and the potential demise of civil society. Social Media Holocaust is the follow-up to Krogstad's stunning first novel Dark  Application: ONE (which debuted with comparisons to Michael Crichton, Lincoln and Child, and Robert Ludlum); is certain to please the most discerning technothriller fan. The latest of Damien's ventures into the realm of ebooks, this work definitely shows he's growing as an author by leaps and bounds, stretching into more genres than even he expected when his journey began.

Breath of Air (The Dryad Quartet)
Breath of Air - Katie Jennings
Genre - Contemporary
Rating - PG
4.3 (40 reviews)
Free until 8 February 2013
Her name was Capri, and she was Air.
She was born with a gift she didn't understand. A gift so strange, so remarkable that she had kept it secret for as long as she could remember, despising that it made her different when all she wanted was to be normal, to belong. As an orphan, belonging to someone, anyone, would have been an incredible blessing, one she would have given up all that she had just to get a taste of. 

But the truth was that she didn't belong in the orphanage in Virginia, or even in the United States. In fact, she didn't belong with human beings at all. Because she wasn't one of them, not really. She was something much more extraordinary. 

She could shift the direction of the wind, create billowing clouds out of nothing, and charm birds into dancing on her open palm. She belonged to an elite group of beings, responsible for preserving the balance of nature and the safety of Earth from an underworld that deserved to be feared, and needed to be controlled. And after years of being lost, she had at last been found, and now the truth of how she had ended up so far from home was becoming horribly clear to her. 

But there's someone who doesn't want her to return; someone who knows Capri was the only witness to an act of heinous treason and violent murder. And when she begins to search her memories for details of the night she was taken from her home, details that will implicate a killer, she finds herself the unwary target of an otherworldly dark force intent on silencing her by any means possible.
Take Back Tomorrow

Eddie Royce thinks he's got things all figured out. He's managed to cheat the system and gotten himself published in the sci fi pulps by "borrowing" plots from Shakespeare. He doesn’t mind being a cheat and a plagiarist as long as no one finds out. But then he meets Chester Blackwood, the most famous science fiction writer of the 1930s, and discovers that Blackwood has a secret much bigger than Eddie's. Worse, the unscrupulous publisher they both work for has caught the scent of their deceptions and is threatening to make their lives difficult. 

When Blackwood disappears, Eddie is caught up in the mystery. With the help of Blackwood's beautiful daughter Roxanne (who has secrets of her own), he tries to piece together the puzzle, but soon he discovers more secrets hidden in the Hollywood Hills, secrets that seem to open doors into the past and the future. When the hack science fiction writer finds himself in a situation more fantastic than any pulp plot he could have imagined, he has to make a choice: sell out to the Hollywood elites who want the secret behind Blackwood’s success, or save himself and Roxanne from the sins of her father even if it means defying the laws of the universe.

A Proven├žal Mystery
A Provencal Mystery - Ann Elwood
Genre - Mystery
Rating - PG13
4.2 (57 reviews)
Free until 8 February 2013
Why did a nun in a seventeenth-century convent flagellate herself until her blood spattered the wall? Why did nuns save a child doomed to death in the Holocaust and who wanted her killed? Who wants a lost head-shaped reliquary that holds something other than a head? And are answers to these questions the key to a terrible modern-day death in a quiet archive?

When American historian Pandora (Dory) Ryan finds a very rare, uncataloged seventeenth century nun’s diary inside a record book at the provincial archives in Avignon, she is thrilled. This is historian’s treasure. But she doesn’t know yet that it will send her on a search that brings about changes in how she feels about her profession, the irrational, and love with a sexy Frenchman. And it will take her from the archive on a dangerous adventure into the countryside of Provence, which, beautiful as it is, has a long and bloody history. 

The archive’s dramatis personae: the grumpy archivist, with his paper-clip chains; the gofer, who smokes Gauloises and gets away with far too much; a nun with a sense of humor who harangues high school kids about sex; the nun's glamorous sidekick; a famous American historian, whose requests for documents are inexplicably denied; the eminent professor, destined to fall in love; his nervous graduate student. And that sexy Frenchman, who isn’t who he says he is.
