Patchwork_Man_CoverPatchwork Man by D.B. Martin 

$3.99FREE Sept 30, 2014
 
Lawrence Juste QC finds himself tricked into taking a case defending a juvenile against a charge of manslaughter by his clever – but dead – wife. Normally he wouldn’t even have opened the folder without her around to persuade him, but she’s left something else to do that for her; a list of all the unsavoury people and events from his past. The ones he’s carefully hidden until now and didn’t even know she was aware of.

Disconcertingly, the boy reminds him of himself – not only as a person but in the crime he’s supposed to have committed. Taking the case catapults Juste into a world that touches his own past with alarming regularity until it throws up the brother he betrayed as a teenager, the bully he’s done his best to avoid ever since and a disturbingly attractive female liaison. It also leads him on a journey in which he rediscovers the family he rejected, has to answer for the murder he should have ensured was fairly tried, but didn’t, and himself – or the principles the man who styled himself Lawrence Juste once wanted to observe. By the time the book closes, the links to his forgotten family have drawn significantly closer and so has the childhood bully. And the one person who still seems to be the linchpin for all of it is Juste’s dead wife whose influence oddly still seems to… Continue reading

#1 in the Diana Racine Mystery series
 
During a New Orleans Mardi Gras Ball, psychic entertainer Diana Racine touches the hand of a masked Cyrano de Bergerac and is instantly transported into the icy-cold body of a dead woman submerged in water. As Diana crumples to the floor, water filling her lungs, she hears Cyrano whisper that the game has begun. Diana has been called every epithet in the book: charlatan, cheat, publicity hound…and genius–all at least partially true. But convincing New Orleans police lieutenant Ernie Lucier that her vision of the dead woman is the real thing may be her hardest act yet. He becomes a believer when Diana leads him to the alligator-infested bayou and the woman’s remains. When another vision leads to another body, it’s clear that the two dead women are a prelude to the killer’s ultimate victim–Diana.

Note: Adult language and situations. 

See what reviewers are saying:
 
Well-developed characters grow stronger throughout the book, and the villain is marvelous–evil but human. I almost felt sorry for him. The main character, Diana Racine, is a complex woman who tries to disguise her very real psychic ability, but when the struggle for her mind begins, she can’t hide it. Iyer presents her visions vividly, with powerful emotions that will have your heart racing. I really felt them with Diana. Ernie Lucier,… Continue reading

First, she finds the dead body of an ex-lover and becomes the prime suspect to his murder.

Raina must figure out how to extract herself before things get dicey. There is no place for an amateur when it comes to murder.

 “This light and entertaining tale is by turns funny, quirky, and sigh-worthy. Heroine Raina Sun is a graduate student with a lot on her plate, so it stands to reason that the one thing she doesn’t need to add to the mix is murder. But we all know how it is – just about the time you’re managing to… Continue reading

NEW Release in the Sam Dyke Mystery Series!
 
Private Investigator Sam Dyke is hired to find a man who’s been released from prison and subsequently gone missing. But the ex-con is an ex-cop who might have been imprisoned for a crime that he didn’t commit. Working for the man’s daughter, Sam soon discovers that this isn’t just a missing persons case – there are other people involved, including the owner of a high-profile casino and a senior police officer. And when the brutal representatives of an Asian gambling syndicate show up with their own brand of persuasiveness, Sam knows that he must put things right before he and everyone he loves become potential targets … 

See what reviewers are saying about other Sam Dyke Mysteries: 

The Bleak

“I think this is the best of the four books in the Sam Dyke series … The book is well researched, bringing back memories of the 1995 Tokyo nerve gas attack in a crowded subway, and also by giving its terrorist mastermind a Soviet Union background. Until the breakup of the Soviet Union, in fact, extensive research was being done on biological weaponry. Finally, though, what makes the book especially compelling is that Dyke in his relentlessness finds himself being mirrored by his terrorist enemy’s equally relentless determination, and it makes the reader uneasily reflect… Continue reading

“Memoria by Alex Bobl is easily described as a dystopian action novel, with tons of secrets and speculations entwined within the story.” – Charlotte Waller

“This a very interesting and thrilling read. It has lots of twists and turns. Mr Bobl has populated this world with lots of great characters and different sub-cultures such as the migrants, the veterans, and evil corporate types. I would definitely recommend this book! Looking forward to finding out what happens next!” – Simon P. from shelfari.com

$2.99FREE  Sept 30-Oct 2, 2014

Seagate and Miner investigate the murder of Maricel Salizar, a young Filipino exchange student at Central Montana State. The most obvious suspect is the boyfriend, who happens to have gang connections. And then there’s Amber, a fellow student who’s obviously incensed at Maricel for a sexual indiscretion involving Amber’s boyfriend. But the evidence keeps leading Seagate and Miner back to the professor, an LDS bishop who hosted her in his dysfunctional home. Seagate takes it in stride that the professor can’t seem to tell the truth about his relationship with the victim, but her devout partner, Ryan Miner, believes that a high-ranking fellow Mormon who violates a sacred trust deserves special punishment. 

See what reviewers are saying:
 
“With Broken Saint, author Mike Markel demonstrates why he is one of the rising masters of the detective mystery, his easy-reading style and compelling characters pulling the reader from page to page and chapter to chapter … Throughout, Markel displays the wry humor that is his trademark, depicting weather, people, and institutions with equal measures of affection and sardonic amusement. The Seagate-Miner series has legs, and I, for one, happily expect to see it continue for some time.” Dennis Meier

“The Broken Saint is the third book of four in the Detective Seagate and Miner Mystery Series. Ryan Seagate is a Mormon; his partner Karen Seagate is agnostic, if not atheistic at times.… Continue reading

 $3.99 - FREE Sept 30-Oct 4, 2014

“You kill my wife and I’ll kill yours.” You must admit, as a proposition, it has an alluring symmetry to it.

It is 1999, and as the Millennium approaches, old certainties wither. For family man, David Braddock, his hitherto predictable world is undergoing a slow collapse. The people closest to him seem suddenly different. As desires and aspirations tangle around each other like parasite stems, betrayal is in the air.
And so is murder.

Fans of Braddock will finally learn the sequence of events that drove him into exile in Asia, while for new readers, ‘A Poison Tree’ is the perfect introduction to the ‘Time, Blood and Karma’ series. 

See what reviewers are saying:
 
“It is an intense, tightly plotted, almost Greek, tragedy. As such it can stand alone as literature. As the action moves inexorably to its climax, tension builds and momentum grows exponentially. Yet, surprises abound. This book transcends genre. I’d give it six stars if I could.” ~ Lee Holz, author of the ‘Bowen’ series.

“As usual with Dolan’s work, the characters are exceptionally solid, realistic and well-drawn and the scene-setting provides a credible backdrop for the events that unfold. The author expertly manages the reader’s emotional reaction through exemplary prose, so be prepared to laugh a few times, grin a lot more, and feel the contrasting emotion of deep sadness as some secrets are revealed and… Continue reading

Lund’s first 2 novels combine for delightful reads – and treats! Recipes are included, per Lund’s husband, Chef Andrew Mark. Lund’s humor hits home with this delectable duo.

KITCHEN ADDICTION! – Meet Mina, a forty-something single who likes to cook – and cook and cook. Her zest for whipping up trays of canapés is dwarfed only by her weird luck and mountain-lion size tabby cat, Vinnie.

Set in Lancaster, PA, you’ll find a surprising cast of characters, humorous plot twists, red herrings and actual recipes. Well, some of the recipes are real. The others you might to take with a pinch of salt, and some Tums.

FREE Y/A Mystery in “Webs” by Lily Stuart

WebsWebs by Lily Stuart

$2.99FREE Sept 27, 2014

Webs opens with teenager, LILY, facing a gun just before it is fired at her. The story then picks up with her attacker’s account of the events leading on from this and LILY’S diary recounting events leading up to it, starting three months earlier. The two narratives gradually converge.
Alongside her own life and problems – her best friend MELEZZ, and her unreliability, her arch-rival for heartthrob, MATT’S, attentions – JAS, and her bitchery, and school with its academic impossibilities and ridiculous characters, Lily’s irreverent teenager’s diary tells of her mother’s foray into the world of internet dating and how it leads LILY to uncover a murderer. Told in turn by LILY and the anonymous murderer – her attacker from the opening scene, their combined story examines different perceptions of love, obsession and relationships, and between them they tell the story of The Russian roulette murder.
The unusual death which Lily’s father – a policeman – is investigating is perfect fodder for Lily’s curious mind. Her penchant for challenges and her Ubiks game – a method of problem-solving – redefine it as murder when her father tells her about an anomaly which makes it less suicide, more suspicious. LILY’S imagination is fired as much by this as by the opportunity for mischief it presents involving her mother’s hated suitors whilst simultaneously ousting them. The only problem is, the more she plots their downfall, the more she uncovers to link them… Continue reading
