Thumbs up Free (nook/Kindle/Kobo/iTunes UK) Girl Who Wouldn't Die [Amsterdam Bombing Suspense]

The Girl Who Wouldn't Die by Manchester-native Cambridge-educated author Marnie Riches is the 1st in her Georgina McKenzie series of crime/suspense thrillers starring the eponymous student criminologist, this installment set at the University of Amsterdam and pitting her against a bomber with a deeper plot with a mysterious part for Our Heroine™, free courtesy of publisher HarperCollins' Maze imprint.

This is being compared to Scandi-noir authors Steig Larsson and Jo Nesbø in the blurb (and you can in fact read a blogpost by Riches about she was particularly inspired by Nesbø in the writing of her book), and has a favourable quote from Barry Forshaw, an academic specializing in studying Nordic noir crime thrillers, some of whose books regarding which I happen to own and find a useful guide to the field (couponable at Kobo, incidentally).

Currently free @ B&N UK, Amazon UK, iTunes UK, and Kobo (available to the UK, but seems decidedly un-free when I check other regional iTunes & Amazon stores which often also get the UK freebies, even Ireland this time around). Probably also free at Google Play UK, which I can't easily check from Canada.

Unlikely to cross the pond, this doesn't even seem to exist in a North American edition, and we've a pretty low transmigration rate for HarperCollins UK freebies anyway.

And this has been the (late!) selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.

Because even if the storyline seems kind of standard and nearly-clichéd trope-y for this subsubgenre, at least it has a mildly unusual-for-English-fiction setting and an academically-oriented heroine and a bit of praise for the author from a specialist source that I more-or-less trust, so hopefully it works out okay.

Enjoy!

Description
HE’S WATCHING HER. SHE DOESN’T KNOW IT…YET

When a bomb explodes at the University of Amsterdam, aspiring criminologist Georgina McKenzie is asked by the police to help flush out the killer.

But the bomb is part of a much bigger, more sinister plot that will have the entire city quaking in fear.

And the killer has a very special part for George to play…

A thrilling race against time with a heroine you’ll be rooting for, this book will keep you up all night!

Now a repeat freebie @ Amazon UK & iTunes UK & Kobo UK (seems to have been replaced with a new version since last time). Will likely drop again in the other UK stores later.

The 2nd novel, The Girl Who Broke the Rules, and the upcoming 3rd-in-series, The Girl Who Walked in Shadows, seems to be on sale for just £0.99 each in many outlets.
