Rating – PG

Free until 1 September 2013

There was no God, no justice. But there was such a thing as hell, and he was living in it. You should have taken the money. He couldn't breathe. He slid down the wall and started to sob.
Why didn't you take the money? Hong Kong, 1992. Ruby Wen is in big trouble. She has stolen a heroin shipment thinking she can sell it to a Mafia connection in California. Now someone's cheated her out of it. She owes money all over town to the worst kind of people. The man she stole from is Red Pole of one of Hong Kong's most notorious triads. Thinking a rival triad stole the heroin he takes it to the streets. Inspector Madeleine Lacey barely has time to count the bodies. But when a British backpacker gets caught in the crossfire, she draws a line in the sand. She just wished the DEA liaison officer would get out of her face and let her do her job. And what was it he was trying to hide? As Hong Kong races towards an uncertain future and a Chinese takeover, its underbelly is brutally exposed in a novel of romance and violence where nothing is what it seems and everyone has a secret to hide. This is the fourth book in The Opium series, described by one critic as 'James Clavell meets The Godfather.' It charts the story of the drug trade in Indochina, from sacks thrown in the back of tiny planes in the nineteen sixties to the multimillion dollar international industry that soon became the plague of the western world.

Psychic Warrior takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars and then reinserts the covert operatives into the real world. The results can be devastating. Mayer uses his real Military experience in the then-classified Special Forces Trojan Warrior program, which was actually conducted, and writes a novel about the new frontier of warfare: the mind.
The Russians sink the submarine USS Thresher in 1963 using their classified psychic project, but something goes awry and all are killed. All except one scientist who plans to take the project to a higher level. Decades later, the Russians unleash Chyort, also known as the ‘Devil’. Chyort is a cyborg that can project into the virtual world with almost limitless power and reassemble his avatar anywhere in real world to wreak havoc. As the Russian mafia steals 20 nuclear warheads to auction them to the highest bidder, Chyort implements his own plan of revenge.
Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton and a small team of US Green Berets who were originally trained in Trojan Warrior program are thrust into the Psychic Warrior program. The team, called Bright Gate, must battle Chyort on the virtual plane and take their own avatars into the real world. Their mission seems simple. Stop Chyort. If they fail? World War III...

Find the Assassins!

Before they try again.

Based on the real life attempt to assassinate Napoleon Bonaparte in 1800.

Invalided out of the French Army, Alain Duval joins the Ministry of Police in Paris, led by the infamous Joseph Fouché.

Newly appointed and off duty, he is strolling through the city when he sees a crowd waiting for Napoleon, the First Consul, not yet Emperor. He is jostled by some men leaving the area in a hurry and shortly afterwards a bomb, the 'Infernal Machine' explodes.

Next day, Duval describes the men to a police artist and joins the hunt for the bombers. Horse-shoes and barrel hoops send him searching all over Paris. Eventually he finds the warehouse used by the bombers and his mentor is killed in the subsequent fight.

Some of the bombers are captured but others escape, then Napoleon puts an abrupt end to the search, blaming others for the outrage.

But the story is not over. Duval falls in love with his mentor's daughter, and together they find another of the bombers, leading to a surprise ending.

Rating – PG13

4.1 (26 reviews)

Free until 1 September 2013

An uproarious romp through the minefield of female one-upmanship!
Leaving her cheating husband in Boston with the paralegal he impregnated, Pippin Snowe and her son move to a ramshackle farmhouse in the exclusive community of Dover, Massachusetts. Pippin finds employment with a local architect, designing kitchen renovations for wealthy Dover women who treat her as they treat the rest of the hired help. Concluding that social climbing is just another sport that she is no good at, Pippin opens a country club for dogs that offers services that the Dover women didn't know they wanted until they found out that admission was required and spaces were limited.
With irreverent wit, Thin Rich Bitches is a humorous chronicle of one woman's quest to find her place within a community of people who are more blessed physically and financially, while learning valuable lessons about life, love, competition, and canine couture.

What would you do...
...if it were your child?
The invasion has begun.
An invasion not from the stars but from within our wombs. All over the world children are being born…different. Their features are alien, their DNA isn’t human, their loyalties are unknown. As scientists, spies, and regular citizens race to make sense of this new disease they find themselves asking the same question: Is this the first wave of an alien assault on Earth?
Novelist and bioterrorism expert Dominic Peloso weaves a complex tale of alien invasion, environmental catastrophe, and societal upheaval, in a world not too removed from our own. Adopted Son perfectly blends hard sci-fi with biting political and social commentary to create a truly modern literary masterpiece that transcends genres.

Murder at the War – Mary Monica Pulver

Amazon Kindle US

Amazon Kindle UK

Genre – Mystery

Rating – PG

4.2 (58 reviews)

Free until 29 August 2013

A murder at the war…
“I was just thinking that the Society for Creative Anachronism is actually very much like the old Norse myth of Valhalla: You can fight all day, get killed any number of times, and still be in great shape for the feast that night!”
…until one of the fighters, Thorstane Shieldbreaker, is genuinely murdered, when the fun turns to deadly seriousness as Lord Stefan von Helle and Lady Katherine of Tretower struggle to solve the crime. Was it one of their own SCA members, a mundane outsider, or Lady Katherine herself?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is having a lovely re-enactment of a Medieval war...until one of the participants is actually murdered. It is up to Detective Peter Brichter and his wife Kori (whose SCA names are Lord Stefan von Helle and Lady Katherine of Tretower) to solve the crime!
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a group of enthusiasts who research and selectively re-create the Middle Ages for knowledge and for fun. At their events, they wear historical clothing and call each other by medieval-style character names. Once a year, they meet to display their handiwork and stage a mock medieval war.
In Murder at the War, policeman Peter Brichter (known in the SCA as Stefan von Helle) and his wife, Kori (known as Katherine of Tretower) go to the war for the fun. But the revelry turns deadly serious when a known troublemaker, Thorstane Shieldbreaker, is actually murdered. The local police, anxious to find the culprit, turn their attention to Peter and Kori as suspects once they find the two have quarreled with Thorstane. It is up to Lord Stefan and Lady Katherine, with their knowledge of the SCA, to clear their names and solve the crime.
The Society for Creative Anachronism is an odd mixture of pedantic realism and idealistic fantasy, full of complex individuals who have succeeded in living a dream without losing their hold on reality. Such a subculture provides a gold mine of unique and colorful characters, motivations, and methods for crime, and Pulver has made brilliant use of her material. With clarity and compassion, she follows her characters to the solution of a most unusual murder mystery. —Diana L. Paxson, originator of the Society for Creative Anachronism and author of Brisingamen and the Westria series.
