by Val McDermid


Publishers Weekly
The return of serial killer Jacko Vance drives McDermid’s superb seventh novel featuring Dr. Tony Hill and Det. Chief Insp. Carol Jordan of the Bradfield police (after 2010’s Fever of the Bone). Vance, the charming TV talk show host responsible for murdering 17 teenage girls in 1997’s The Wire in the Blood, manages to escape from prison just as Carol and her team are on the brink of disbanding at the behest of a new chief superintendent.


I've actually been dying to read a Val McDermid book since seeing Wire in the Blood, and am sort of shocked to see one of these -- released in 2012 no less -- showing up for free.
Awesome deal. I can't believe this is free.

The books are much better than the show.

Another Michael A. Smith freebie - The Inheritors (The Jeremiah Trilogy).

Quote:
Jeremiah the Terrorist Prophet has developed a genetically engineered, virulent variation of the flu virus, and found the perfect delivery vehicle--the hundreds of millions of migratory birds that circle the globe each year. His followers, including dissident military units and sympathizers from all around the world, have received a vaccine and stand ready to reestablish Eden after the "earthly garden" is weeded. God ordained the apocalypse in his Revelation to Jeremiah. The Prophet tries to recruit his two adult sons to the effort, but they have strong ties to the terrorist's archenemies, Steve Wallace and Laura Delaney. The action is fast and furious in this conclusion to the Jeremiah Trilogy, a ripped-from-the-headlines look at all aspects of terrorism in our time.

A Diamond Before You Die (Neal Rafferty New Orleans Mystery - #2) - Chris Wiltz

Amazon US---Amazon UK

-This book was previously published by Mysterious Press in 1988.

-The author has also been published by Macmillan, Dutton Adult (Penguin), etc.

-Book #1 was free in June.

Quote:
"Wiltz brings a refreshing individual outlook to the formula of hard-boiled detective fiction"--Washington Post

"A tangle of corrupt politics...A hot affair"--Publishers Weekly

Would-be district attorney Richard Cotton has hired private detective Neal Rafferty to keep tabs on his wife. His wife, Paula Cotton, has hired the cool and classy Lee Diamond to keep tabs on her husband. It’s almost Mardi Gras in New Orleans and when the masks go on they hide a multitude of sins. Like bribery, corruption and drug-running—not to mention Richard Cotton’s particular secret. And when the bodies start showing, Rafferty realizes that adultery is not the name of the game. In the gentleman’s city of New Orleans, all things eventually settle into the Mississippi River mud. It’s a question of what stays buried.

As a long-time US reader of UK police procedurals, I've seen more references to "The Sweeney" than I can count, but never got to see the show. Looks like now I can read the book, though!
Free on Amazon:

The Sweeney 2: The Manhattan File by Ian Kennedy Martin

Jack Regan is sent to New York on the trail of an international plot involving millions in missing American military hardware. As usual Jack Regan's talent for extreme action means confrontation with the NYPD, the FBI, the CIA and organised crime, and also a mysterious and willing woman.

This is the second of three Sweeney novels published at the time of the original series. The others are: ‘The Sweeney: Regan’, and ‘The Sweeney 3: The Deal of the Century’.

Ian Kennedy Martin is the creator of Thames Television’s enormously popular TV series.

This is the second of three Sweeney novels published at the time of the original series. The others are: ‘The Sweeney: Regan’, and ‘The Sweeney 3: The Deal of the Century’.

Ian Kennedy Martin is the creator of Thames Television’s enormously popular TV series.
More info about this from Wikipedia:

Quote:
The series was created by writer Ian Kennedy Martin, brother of the better-known Troy Kennedy Martin who contributed several episodes and wrote the second film. It was born from a one-off drama, entitled Regan, which Ian Kennedy Martin wrote for Thames Television's Armchair Cinema series of standalone films in 1974. The part of Regan was specifically written for Thaw, by a friend of Kennedy Martin with whom he had worked on Redcap.

From the very beginning, the show was seen as having series potential. After Regan scored highly in the ratings, work began on the development of the series proper. Ian Kennedy Martin's ideas for the series were for it to be partially studio-based, with more dialogue and less action but producer Ted Childs disagreed with this, and Ian Kennedy Martin reluctantly parted company with the project.

The Sweeney was the first really modern police-based series on British television. Previously, most dramas featuring the police had shied away from showing "coppers" as fallible human beings... They were brutal and violent in dealing with London's hardened criminals, and prone to cutting corners and bending laws. The series showed a somewhat more realistic side of the police, which often had a disregard for authority, rules and the "system", as long it got the job done. Until The Sweeney, this had been a subject largely whitewashed by British television.

It was a fast-paced edge-of-your-seat action series, depicting the Squad's relentless battle against armed robbery; but it nevertheless included a substantial degree of humour. For the time, it had a high degree of graphic on-screen violence and the episodes had a high number of on-screen deaths.

A total of nine books were written and released in 1977 published by Futura Publications Ltd.

The Sweeney
Regan and the Manhattan File
Regan and the Deal of the Century
Regan and the Lebanese Shipment
Regan and the Human Pipeline
Regan and the Bent Stripper
Regan and the Snout Who Cried Wolf
Regan and the Venetian Virgin
Regan and the High Rollers

The first three books were authored by Ian Kennedy Martin, the rest by Joe Balham. The plots of the books are not taken from any of the television episodes; overall, the tone of the books differ somewhat from the television series in that Regan is usually depicted as working alone, and his relationship with Carter is distinctly unfriendly
The Sweeney

He has this to say about the books at his website:

Quote:
Owning the book rights of the series I created, the Sweeney, there was an agreement with the tv company that I would not alter the format of the series in writing the three novels. Another writer under a pseudonym wrote a further four. So I penned those novels under certain constraints but despite this they had a stand alone existence published in the USA and other places where the tv programme was not sold.

You may want to add them to an ereaderiq wishlist if you're interested in picking them up again...
The first in the series, Child of Silence, is still free.

Quote:
Spoiler:
First in the award-winning Bo Bradley mystery series, CHILD OF SILENCE introduces the much-loved sleuth whose big heart and quirky wit help her deal with both an impossible job and a psychiatric disorder her Irish grandmother called "the sight." An amateur artist, Bo would rather be painting, but when a child is in danger she risks everything, even her life.

Thirty miles east of San Diego, in the dusty heart of the California high desert, lies the Barona Ranch Indian Reservation. This is desolate country, marked by lone pines, winding canyons, and granite hills. It is here that the boy was found, tied to a mattress in an abandoned mountain shack.

The case is assigned to Bo Bradley, a child abuse investigator with San Diego’s juvenile court system. It is meaningful job, and it pays for Bo’s few indulgences, like her books on Indian lore and the huge canvasses for her paintings, based on ancient Native American rock drawings.

Bo takes her profession seriously, and she abides by its cardinal rule; never get involved with the child-victim. This has not always been easy for a sensitive woman whose emotions ride perilously close to the surface. Now, with this four-year-old boy, it proves impossible.

He is a non-Indian who calls himself Weppo, and he has been classified as mentally impaired, making him a high risk for abuse. But something in Weppo’s intense gleaming gaze strikes a deep chord in Bo. She knows that look. In the eyes of her late, deaf sister, she has seen it before. Weppo is not at all impaired; he is deaf.

Inspired by this new knowledge, Bo sets out to interview the Paiute mystic, the woman they call “Seize the Dark,” who found the boy. Driving along pine scented trails into the Indian country she so loves, Bo feels as if a strange force is leading her onward, an intuition that builds when she meets “Seize the Dark” and the old crone confides that “spirits” led her to Weppo; “I saw the boy with blood on his mouth.”

After visiting the shack, Bo wonders, had the deaf child been tied up because there was no other way of saying “Stay here. I’ll be back”? An inner voice tells her as much. And she knows she must listen, for it also tells her that Weppo is in great danger.

A poisoned-tipped bullet soon proves the point–as two thugs break into the hospital and attempt to murder the boy. Pushed beyond the point of no return and into a dangerous manic state, Bo bends the rules and swings into action.

Risking personal involvement and professional ruin at the hands of her by-the-book supervisor, she vows to unearth the truth surrounding this child of silence. It is a mission that will take her from the ancient sands of the California desert to the gilded mansions of Houston’s political set and back, as Bo Bradley mounts a desperate struggle to save Weppo–and herself–from certain death.
