Free story (Kindle UK) Cursed: A Jack Nightingale Short [Supernatural Mystery]

Cursed: A Jack Nightingale Short by Stephen Leather, is a supernatural ex-cop PI tale who presumably has his own series with a new book coming out soon, free courtesy of Hodder Stoughton.

Free to pre-order @ Amazon UK (slated for Dec 20th). Wouldn't expect to see this elsewhere, as Hodder is a UK publisher.

UK buyers can also pick up one of Leather's novels really cheaply: Hard Landing: The First Spider Shepard Thriller, also published by Hodder, is a mere £0.49, less than 1/10th of the paperback cost. I thoroughly approve of this e-book pricing scheme.

Just so non-UK readers don't feel left out, Leather offers a free short story via Smashwords: Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish, a murder mystery featuring a Singapore cop.

Description
Ex-cop turned private eye Jack Nightingale is used to dealing with tricky situations. He's faced down the powers of hell a couple of times, too. Then he's called in to help a policeman who's lying at death's door. The doctors can't work out what's wrong.

But the dying man's colleagues swear blind that he was cursed by a gypsy during the Dale Farm clearance. And Nightingale could be his only hope.

Well, yes, free stuff on Smashwords generally translates to free everywhere else, but since that wasn't the feature freebie, I didn't feel in the mood to link to the half-dozen stores that would also have it and the direct to SW for every format was easiest, especially considering Amazon still charges that $2.00 Whispernet surcharge even for freebies for certain regions, IIRC.
