Free Book (Kindle) - Crossing the Line

Crossing the Line, by Stephen Jay Schwartz, author of Boulevard and Beat ($9.99 each), which he describes as "something like Dexter meets Californication.” (and which are being shopped around to see if they can be adapted as a TV show), is a short story with the same main character as the two novels. There isn't a cover picture yet and no description listed, but I found an interview where he discussed the story. Here is his synopsis:

Quote:
(It) takes us back to Hayden’s younger days in the LAPD, just as he starts a stint in Vice. It marks the moment when Hayden first “crosses the line” with a prostitute he is supposed to arrest. It reveals the moment his addiction first pokes through.


Free pre-order on Kindle.

Free Kindle (with geographic restrictions) short story - Crossing the Line

Title: Crossing the Line by Stephen Jay Schwartz.

Pre-order for delivery on December 7, 2010.


Description: Hayden Glass is on the fast track to making detective with the LAPD, but first he’s got to work his way through Vice. But as any cop can attest, you can’t leave your work at the office, and with Hayden’s cursed and troubled past, his soul is not in the best shape. His marriage is on the rocks and he’s carries a deep guilt and anger that nothing can seem to quench. Until one day he finds something that can make it all go away.

This short story sets the stage for Stephen Jay Schwartz’s Los Angeles Times bestselling debut novel, Boulevard, and its follow-up, Beat, both following Hayden Glass into crimes unimaginable and personal hells and healing.

This short story is 5kb in length, which is shorter than my socks!

And has now been posted about 100 times (ok, maybe only at least three times).

I don't think that is the actual length. I've noticed they always show 5 kb when it's a pre-order - no idea why.
