Free(Kindle) Ben Reese mysteries by Sally Wright [Cozy Hist.Mystery]

--http://www.amazon.com/Watches-Night-Reese-mysteries-ebook/dp/B007G0IQRQ

Quote:
Description:

Ben Reese, university archivist and ex-WWII Scout, gets swept back after 17 years to unfinished business from war torn Germany when Kate Lindsay, the widow of a Ranger friend of Ben’s, receives a grisly package lost in a dead letter office since 1944. A Scots medic, and keeper of secrets, living still in a mental institution, is silenced before he can tell what he knows of the package and much else.

Hunting his killer takes Ben and Kate from America, to Scotland, to the countryside of Tuscany, where Ben has to stop the murderer from killing again while he confronts his own long time hunger to take revenge for shootings he couldn’t prevent by a U.S. Army Tech Team leader in the last year of the war.

Editorial Reviews:

"Sally Wright has it pretty much mastered in her Ben Reese Series... In Pursuit and Persuasion... Wright provides nice variations on the mainstays of the whodunit: a picturesque setting, thick historical background, and an assortment of smart characters" New York Times "Wright not only provides clever leads to challenge the reader, but she has also created a strong and interesting protagonist in Reese" Publishers Weekly on Pride and Predator "Publish And Perish is put together with polish and precision. It echoes such classic writers as Dorothy L. Sayers and Ngaio Marsh" The Washington Times"

About the Author:

Sally Wright is a graduate of Northwestern University, where she earned a degree in oral interpretation of literature. She has also completed graduate work at the University of Washington. Ms. Wright is the author of "Publish and Perish," the debut of the Ben Reese series, "Pride and Predator, "Pursuit and Persuasion (an Edgar Allan Poe Award finalist), and "Out of the Ruins. She lives with her husband in northwestern Ohio, and she travels widely to research the Ben Reese books--to England and Scotland for earlier titles in the series, to America's southeastern coast for "Out of the Ruins.

Another in this series is free today:

Pride and Predator by Sally Wright


Parson Jonathan MacLean is too healthy and widely loved to die so young. Yet suddenly and mysteriously he's dead. Archivist Ben Reese, in Scotland to appraise the treasures of Balnagard Castle for his old friend Lord Alexander Chisholm, suspects cold-blooded murder. And he is absolutely certain it was one of Jonathan's kith and kin who cleverly did away with him. What Ben doesn't suspect is that the same venomous killer is now arranging a most creative death for Ben himself . . .

And, one more in the series free today:


Pursuit and Persuasion


Pursuit And Persuasion, (a 2001 Mystery Writers Of America Edgar Allan Poe Award Finalist) revolves around the secrets unearthed by Georgina Fletcher - a private, self-contained, contemplative Scotswoman, a widow, and an English professor at Aberdeen University. The day before she dies, she writes an alarming letter to her heir (the American daughter of her oldest friend) and arranges to have it posted in the event of her death.

"...I have reason to believe that my death was desired, planned and perpetrated with great care and deliberation. Even if I am right, the circumstances of my death will appear to have been brought about by natural causes..."

Georgina is anything but a fool, and it happens just as she'd feared. She's also punctilious and ethical, and won't name the person she suspects. Her assumptions are based on speculation, and she refuses to risk condemning any innocent person. She asks instead that her heir, Ellen Winter, hire a detective to investigate her death, free of her own prejudices.
Ellen is one of Ben Reese's archival apprentices at Alderton University, so she knows he's an ex-World War II Scout who's solved other murder cases and is in Scotland on sabbatical. She'd much rather ask Ben to help than use some unknown detective.
