A couple of freebies from Endeavor Press today:

Thriller Market Forces by Matt Lynn.

Quote:
A woman’s disappearance.

The collapse of a currency.

A cold yet fanatical financier.

How are they linked to each other – and will they lead to the destruction of the world’s financial markets?

Tom Bracewell is an economist for an investment bank when he comes home one days to find his Estonian wife Tatyana has disappeared.

But where has she gone?

And why?

Sarah Turnbull is a currency analysts who has just been hired by The Leopard Fund, a vast hedge fund run by the ruthless French financier Jean-Pierre Telmont.

But who is Telmont really?

And where did his money come from?

As Tom starts to investigate Tatyana’s disappearance, he starts to wonder if he ever knew his wife – there were trips to Europe and massive Swiss bank accounts of which he knew nothing.

And after he meets Sarah, he realises that Tatyana was somehow linked to Telmont.

As The Leopard Fund stages an audacious attack on the markets, and with stockmarkets collapsing around the world, Tom and Sarah finally uncover the truth.

And in a breathless chase across Europe, they must stay alive – and unlock a secret that may yet destroy the world.
Another novella by G.W. Colkitto The Case of the Missing Heiress (The Sebastian Symes Mysteries)

Quote:
G.W Colkitto’s charming series of Sebastian Symes novellas transports the reader back to the late nineteenth century, a world of gentleman detectives, ingenious thieves, bumbling constables, and cryptic mysteries.

A friend and sometimes rival of two of the best-loved characters in English literature - Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes - the Sebastian Symes stories are a brilliant addition to the canon of British detective fiction.

In 'The Case of the Missing Heiress', a Sunday afternoon of research for Sebastian Symes is shattered by the arrival of his old friend and family lawyer Ebenezer Bulrush.

He has lost an heiress to the Fitzwarton fortune and faces ruin.

The only man he can turn to find the missing girl and clear his firm's names is Sebastian Symes.

But the great detective soon finds himself embroiled in a tangled tale of love, deception and family feuds - and he will need to use all his wits to find a solution to one of the knottiest mysteries of his career.
