September 30, 2011

Kindle Nation Bargain Book Alert: Jack Harney’s Compelling Page-Turner THE MILLSTONE PROPHECY, 4 Straight Rave Reviews and Just $2.99 on Kindle!

Famed NYPD homicide detective, Dax McGowan, seeks to track down and kill the pedophile priest that caused his daughter to commit suicide. What starts out as an inner city investigation soon turns into an international manhunt leading to the Gates of Vatican City and beyond.

Our hero faces never before encountered obstacles thwarting his grief driven odyssey. He is livid at a politically weakened response by the D.A.’s office, an intransigent and deceitful Catholic hierarchy, and a cast of highly trained assassins bent on killing him. Why so much protection for this one, particularly hermit-like priest?

Constantly assailing his incredible deductive and memory skills is the battle he confronts with his conscience, as murdering any perpetrator defies the very fabric of his personal moral code. Further complicating this contradiction is his encounter with three new players in the mix who he must employ to get at his prey. One of them, a lesbian SVU detective, is a constant reminder of what real duty means. Another, an expert who provides a needed mentor’s education into the vagaries of the Catholic Magisterium, yet carries what appears to be the oxymoronic name of Seymour Hirsch.  But, most notably his introduction to a woman, the CEO of the world’s largest clergy sex abuse survivor’s network, who offers him a chance at real love, something he’d never before experienced.

An overriding question? At what point will Dax’s one minded quest to exact revenge lead to a breakdown in his formidable skills and his own demise?

Here’s the set-up:
Famed N.Y.P.D. Lieutenant, Dax McGowan, tracks down the pedophile priest who caused his daughter to commit suicide. A city-wide investigation soon turns into an international manhunt taking him to the gates of the Vatican and beyond with startling results. An intransigent hierarchy, a wimpish legal community’s response, and his own conscience thwart the detective’s efforts as his own life becomes imperiled in the process.

Julia London’s Material Girl Is Our New Romance Of The Week Sponsor!

Material Girl, the first book in Julia London’s Lear Sisters Trilogy, is here to sponsor lots of great, free Kindle romance books:

Material Girl (Lear Sisters Trilogy)

by Julia London
4.2 stars – 23 Reviews
Lending: Enabled

Here’s the set-up:

Rich. Sexy. Beautiful. Robin Lear is all that—and her jet-set life is golden. Until the day her indestructible father sends her tumbling off her pedestal with
the startling news that he is dying. Then he further shatters her illusions by demoting her from the cushy job in the family business to teach her “about
life.” In an instant her whole world unravels, and Robin is suddenly swimming in uncharted waters, including a bogus night in jail, a new job as the lackey of
her toady ex-boyfriend, and a major distraction in the form of one very sexy contractor who’s renovating her house.

Jake Manning has had some tough knocks in life. Now all he wants is to make enough money to finish his degree and, maybe, get a nice house with a nice wife and a nice kid. But this Prada-clad ice princess is turning his life upside down with her sassy—and disastrous—ways. Jake’s head tells him to run, don’t walk, from this gorgeous train wreck of a woman. A man would have to be crazy to pursue someone like Robin Lear. But Jake is crazy—about her….

Our New Thriller Of The Week Sponsor Is Dirk Wyle’s Bahamas West End Is Murder

Here to sponsor our terrific list of free mystery and thriller titles this week, it’s Dirk Wyle’s Bahamas West End Is Murder, a Ben Candidi Mystery:

Here’s the set-up:
As vacationing Ben Candidi and Rebecca Levis sail through International Waters toward Grand Bahama Island, they receive a strange welcome—a sinking cabin
cruiser with a dead man at the helm. Ben knows how to patch bullet holes below the waterline and Rebecca knows how to estimate time of death. And they agree
that the West End marina is the right place to bring the body. To avoid trouble, they play it dumb and treat the cocaine-smuggling marina tenants as the divers
and sport fishermen they are pretending to be. Unfortunately, the mailbox corporation in Miami that owns the yacht ignores Ben’s $100,000 salvage
claim—and the Bahamian police won’t let him move the yacht to Florida. The harder Ben and Rebecca press their claim, the more sinister West End becomes.
Should they cut their losses and run? Or is it too late already?

No Good Deed: Book One of the Mark Taylor Series (A Psychological Thriller)

4.4 stars - 108 reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here's the set-up:
Mark Taylor discovers first hand that no good deed goes unpunished when the old camera he found during a freelance job in an Afghanistan bazaar gives him more than great photos. It triggers dreams of disasters. Tragedies that happen exactly as he envisions them. He learns that not only can he see the future, he can change it. Then the unthinkable happened and everyone ignored his frantic warnings. Thousands die. Suddenly, the Feds are pounding on his door and the name they have for Taylor isn't urban hero. It's enemy combatant. And, it means they can do anything they want to him. Anything at all. Approx. 368 pages
One Reviewer Notes:
Mary McDonald has created a unique storyline, essentially a variation on clairvoyance wherein the protagonist not only sees the future, but has the ability to change the outcome. The result of his benevolence is the subject of the title - No Good Deed - - - goes unpunished. I was captivated by McDonald's story and read it in two sittings. She is an excellent writer, crafts a solid plot line and holds the readers interest from start to finish. What more could a reader ask of an author. A great read and worthy of the success it has achieved.
Gordon Ryan, Author

4.3 stars – 15 Reviews

Here’s the set-up:
Love At Absolute Zero is about a physicist who tries to apply the tools of science to finding a soul mate. Specifically, Gunnar Gunderson, a 32-year-old physicist at the University of Wisconsin, gets a promotion, and all he can think of now is finding a wife, causing his research to falter. To meet his soul mate within three days–that’s what he wants and all time he can carve out–he and his team are using the scientific method, to riotous results.”As if Einstein didn’t struggle hard enough failing at a unified field theory,” says Philip Persinger, author of Do The Math, “Meeks ups the ante by tossing philosophy, anthropology, hashish and love (with a capital L) into the mix. And while we’re so sorry, Uncle Albert, in Love At Absolute Zero, Meeks succeeds absolutely.” “I’ve read both of Meeks’s short story collections and The Brightest Moon of the Century,” says author Kevin Gerard (Conor and the Crossworlds). “I roared through Love At Absolute Zero in a day and a half. Meeks’s prose is carefully crafted, his characters compelling and entertaining. I love everything he writes, and I recommend Love At Absolute Zero without reservation.”
