Last Secret of the Temple [NOOK Book]
by Paul Sussman

Description:
In the year 70 AD, as the Romans sacked and destroyed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, a young Jewish boy was hidden away and chosen as the guardian of a great secret. For seventy generations this secret remained safeguarded. But in present day Israel, a Jewish radical threatens to reveal this hidden truth and use it to rend apart the fragile Middle East—and only an unlikely duo of hardened detectives of very different origins and a young, enterprising Palestinian journalist can unite to ward off disaster.

A relentless and fast-paced thriller that moves from Egypt to Jerusalem to the Sinai Desert, that spans the millennia and involves Cathar heretics, Nazi prisoners, and modern-day suicide bombers, Paul Sussman’s The Last Secret of the Temple is a thrilling, roller-coaster adventure that brilliantly examines the participants on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Timely, important, and completely absorbing, it marks Paul Sussman as one of today’s great thriller writers.


Publisher's Weekly:
"There are familiar Da Vinci Code elements, but Sussman, an archeologist, puts in plenty of satisfying twists and turns, and grounds the story in the violence and intrigue of the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

Free today: Strawgirl by Abigail Padgett (Bo Bradley Mysteries #2)

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004U7ES2A

Quote:
Second in the award-winning Bo Bradley mystery series, STRAWGIRL throws child abuse investigator Bo into the curious world of cults, and pits her against the most loathsome of antagonists.

The rape/murder of a little girl is exploited by a sensation-seeking psychologist, arousing the public to a frenzy of mindless rage toward “Satanists” while Bo struggles to protect the murdered child’s sister and save an unjustly accused man from prison.

Complicating everything is an attractive suitor, Cajun pediatrician Andrew LaMarche, whose proposal in a canoe results in watery disaster. Add new friends Rombo Perry, an ex-boxer, and partner Martin St.John, whose wheat rolls are to die for, plus an ACLU lawyer sleeping on her couch, and Bo suddenly has an entourage!

But both the system for which she works and the real killer are out to get Bo, in a complex case that threatens her with professional ruin… and death.

“A strikingly unconventional sleuth… (Padgett) knows how to tell a story with passion and purpose.” New York Times Book Review

White Knuckle, another thriller by Colin Dunne, is free from Endeavor Press.

Quote:
It was one of those quiet, very English provincial towns filled with very respectable people with good manners and good morals. The last sort of place you’d expect murder or terrorism or perversion. And the last sort of place you’d expect to find Joe Hussy.

A man known in the armed forces as the Rat-Catcher - because he hunted down vermin and destroyed them ruthlessly.

It was three years since Joe Hussy had retired from front-line soldiering. Three years since he’d been High-Risk Hussy, Death Delivered Daily.

But after a seemingly innocent local hero dies in mysterious circumstances, Hussy is forced out of retirement. As the investigation gathers pace, he runs into some old friends: men who have neither forgiven or forgotten. And soon he is back on a White Knuckle ride - into the gates of hell itself.

Free suspense by Craig Smith from small publisher, Myrmidon Books - Every Dark Place. Also free at Amazon UK.

Quote:
Ten years ago, sleepy Shiloh Springs was shaken as five teenagers were clubbed and shot to death and a sixth left for dead. But now the killer's conviction has been overturned after allegations that his rights were violated on his arrest. Rick Trueblood is a careworn private investigator working for the Shiloh County prosecutor's office; a veteran loner still grieving for a daughter murdered eight years ago- a crime he has never been able to solve. The judge has allowed just sixty days for the prosecutor's office to find enough evidence to retry the case. But as Rick struggles to re-investigate a trail long gone cold he starts to uncover a rat's nest of intrigue and duplicity with ramifications that lead closer to home than he could have possibly imagined. Booker in the meantime is out on bail. All he wants with his freedom is to kidnap and murder the two adolescent daughters of the minister who brought him to faith. When Booker finally snatches the girls, the local authorities follow procedures and file reports. Rick, on the other hand, has learned something about the way Booker thinks. In the desperate hours that follow, Rick recovers his instinct for the hunt, and with it, quite unexpectedly, a renewed passion for life.

Free - The Ghosts of Varner Creek by Michael Weems. Previously published by Five Star. Also free at Smashwords and B&N. Although there are ghosts in the story, it seems to be primarily one of suspense rather than horror.

No real description given by the author, so please see the Kirkus Review at the Smashwords link.

Latest freebie from Robert W. Walker: Unnatural Instinct.

Quote:
Dr. Jessica Coran faces the most terrifying challenge of her career when her professional adversary, a criminal court judge, is kidnapped by a deranged man with an unnatural instinct for revenge...

On an isolated Iowa farm, a madman sits in judgment. In a grotesque mockery of the law, he prepares to deliver a twisted form of justice. The accused stands before him- Judge Maureen DeCampe--guilty as charged.

Her sentence will be death. Unforgiving, painful, and slow. No one can stop these wheels of justice. Not even Dr. Jessica Coran. For her, the nightmare is just beginning.

Court is now in session...

(This book is ninth in Robert W. Walker's Instinct series... )

I can't believe how prolific this guy is.

Free Western Noir from Beat to a Pulp: Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles Vol. II by Edward A. Grainger. Short stories.

Quote:
Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles Vol. II continues to chronicle the tales of two unorthodox 19th century U.S. Marshals. With seven more adventures, this collection includes the novella "Origin of White Deer" where the outlaw marshal leaves his Arapaho home as a teen to find his roots in the lawless town of Cheyenne, Wyoming. These noir tales infuse the Western genre with a fresh perspective on topics like race relations and social justice while still delivering pulse-racing action in the tradition of Wanted: Dead or Alive and Gunsmoke.

Free today: Grift Sense (Tony Valentine #1) by James Swain, first published by Ballantine Books in Hardcover, 2001. I enjoyed reading this several years ago and highly recommend it.

http://www.amazon.com/Grift-Sense-To...dp/B00960TY4I/

Quote:
The New York Times Review of Books

Have you heard the one about the canny granny who won a pot of money by card-counting on her rosary beads? How about the mother-and-son team whose method of palming cards at the blackjack table was ''pure poetry''? And what about the sweet techniques of guys like Jake the Snake and Larry the Lightbulb? James Swain, who came to his expertise on gambling hustles by way of his skills as a sleight-of-hand magician, uses the crooked play of these inspired cheats to pull us into GRIFT SENSE, a flashy, funny novel about a cool scam to break the bank at a Las Vegas casino.

When Nick Nicocropolis gets wind that someone is out to bring down his establishment, the grandly named but barely solvent Acropolis, he does the smart thing by calling in Tony Valentine, an ex-cop with a nose for a good grift. ''I can feel when a hustle's going down, even if I don't know exactly what it is,'' says Tony, who tests his instinct against his database of some 5,000 known hustlers and comes up with the profile of a dead man. (So much for science.) Although it's slightly maddening to watch Tony conducting off-the-premises research when he could be walking us through some of the other swindles going down on the casino floor, Swain knows how to misdirect the eye during the deal. -- Marilyn Stasio

“The momentum is great, the writing nimble, the action intricate.” – Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Swain has hit on a winning combination.” – Washington Post Book World
“Mixing humor, suspense, poignancy and insider-lore, Swain is one terrific writer. A thoroughly winning book.” – The Wall Street Journal
“Ingenious entertainment.” – The New York Times Book Review
“Swain’s mysteries are a sure bet.” – The Chicago Tribune
"This series has got to be one of the finds of the decade.” -- Kirkus Reviews

Free today at Amazon: Shadow of Innocence (McCarthy Family Mysteries) by Ric Wasley. First published by Kunati, 2007.

http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Innocen...mm_kin_title_0

Quote:
The Newport Folk Festival provides a groovy backdrop for this drug-and-sixties-music-soaked mystery, featuring partners in love and danger, Mick and Bridget, hopping on their motorcycles and into action. As the family of detectives quip, banter, and swing into action, posh Newport is threatened by a perverse, shadowy secret. Mick and Bridget's exuberance and optimism manage to glimmer through even the darkest of perils, as they delve into a seamy world of drugs and sex, and are forced to match wits with both the the mob and a shadowy psychopathic killer.

Free today on Amazon/ UK: Pas de Death by L.M. Vincent. First published by St. Martin's Press, 1994.

Quote:
Dr. Townsend Reeves relishes the chance to work out his marital woes with dancer-wife Leslie Rosenthal, a member of the Paul Gruenfeld Company in New York who has returned to Kansas City for a residence with the National Dance Festival. But there’s considerable bad blood between her boss and modern dance sensations Gerard Moreau and Felicia Bradley, the star duo that shares performance billing at the festival. When Moreau is found dead of an apparent cocaine overdose, Reeves suspects foul play and embarks on an investigatory pas de deux with homicide detective Anthony Mauro in this tale of modern dance, fertility clinics, and murder.

“. . .the season’s most original reason for not telling the police what you know about an unusually clever murder.” — Kirkus Reviews

Free from Amazon: Killing Plato by Jake Needham. From Half Penny Ltd (Hong Kong). First published by Prime Crime Press, Hong Kong, 2003. From author's website (jakeneedham.com): "For just three days — November 13, 14, and 15 — you will be able to pick up a copy of the Kindle edition of KILLING PLATO, the second title in my Jack Shepherd series of international legal thrillers, for the extremely reasonable price of absolutely free."

http://www.amazon.com/KILLING-PLATO-...=killing+plato

http://www.amazon.co.uk/KILLING-PLAT...=pd_sim_kinc_1

Quote:
"The gritty and taut KILLING PLATO is 100% unadulterated attitude." --The Singapore Straits Times

Plato Karsarkis was an international celebrity straight out of Vanity Fair until a New York grand jury indicted him for smuggling Iraqi oil and charged him with racketeering and espionage. There was also the matter of a woman he may or may not have murdered to cover it all up. When Karsarkis flees the United States just ahead of the FBI and promptly vanishes, the world's media whips itself into a frenzy.

Jack Shepherd was a politically connected American lawyer until he traded the fierce intrigues of Washington for the quiet life in Bangkok. Then one day he walks into a bar on the jet-set island of Phuket and finds the world's most famous fugitive waiting for him.

Karsarkis wants to hire him. He wants a presidential pardon so he can return to American and he knows Shepherd's connections to the White House just might get it for him. But the U.S. Marshals are in Phuket as well and they want something from Shepherd, too. They're there to kidnap Karsarkis and take him back to the US for trial and the Marshals want Shepherd to help them set a trap.

What Shepherd wants is for everybody to go away and leave him alone. At least he does until he discovers a chilling secret, one that plunges him a violent spiral of friendship and betrayal and pulls him straight back into the life he thought he had left behind in Washington.

The Marshals aren't really in Phuket to arrest Plato Karsarkis. They're there to kill him.

Free today: Lie Down in Green Pastures (The Psalms 23 Mysteries #3) by Debbie Viguie from Abington Press.

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/lie-...uie/1100047418


http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...green+pastures

Quote:
Even though they work right next door to each other, Cindy and Jeremiah come from two different worlds. Cindy is a church secretary; Jeremiah is a Reformed rabbi with a mysterious past full of danger and excitement. Together they have faced down a serial killer at Easter and a murderer of homeless people.
The two unlikely companions continue to forge a strong friendship as they explore personal history and faith with each passing adventure.

This third volume in the Psalm 23 Mysteries series finds Jeremiah and Cindy matching wits with an unscrupulous land developer. In a fast-paced story set around St. Patrick's Day, murder invades an idyllic landscape, challenging them to save hundreds of teens even as they try to discover the source of their unexpected danger.

Thanks for all the good tips, BelleZora-- but most especially for the James Swain/ Tony Valentine novel! I second your recommendation-- this is a great series.

The first five books of Jon Land's Blaine McCracken spy thriller series are $2.99 each, down from $10.00, at Amazon and B&N.

1. The Omega Command B&N

Quote:
A space shuttle is destroyed during flight, and the CIA recalls disgraced agent Blaine McCracken to uncover the people responsible

A space shuttle disappears during a routine repair mission, 180 miles above Earth’s surface. An intelligence operative with a dark secret is murdered, his car set ablaze, while he is in the middle of fulfilling a depraved fantasy. And a reporter receives a message from a dying man that suggests the organization responsible may be one of the world’s most prestigious corporations.

The government knows just one man who can untangle this mystery: a throwaway on the deactivated list. Exiled to a desk job in Paris for stepping on the wrong toes, Blaine McCracken is a killer—a ruthless pursuer of truth who will let no one, friend or enemy, stand in his way when civilian lives are in danger.

McCracken gets results, and his country needs him now more than ever.
2. The Alpha Deception B&N

Quote:
A space-borne superweapon rains death down on an American small town, and Blaine McCracken races to learn who pulled the trigger before the fearsome beam turns on Washington

In the last years of the Cold War, policy and trust for the Russians have led to disarmament treaties and hope for a new beginning. But peace is not yet within grasp. An entire American town has been wiped off the map: not by nuclear strike, but rather a space-borne particle cannon capable of reducing the entire nation to dust in hours.

But who pulled the trigger? Was it the Russians, making a final bid for world domination? Or was it a third power—some aspiring conqueror hoping to pit the superpowers against each other?

It’s up to Blaine McCracken to find out. An old flame has contacted the rogue op, begging for help protecting her father, a jeweler who has just been robbed of five rare stones—five rubies that could mean life or death for the United States.
3. The Gamma Option B&N

Quote:
When his estranged son is kidnapped, Blaine McCracken goes to work for a group of Arab militants to recover the child he never knew

Since he first went behind enemy lines in Vietnam, Blaine McCracken has faced death on every continent. In the line of fire he is an iron man, but now he faces a different challenge: fatherhood.

His son, Matt, is thirteen—the unknown product of a long ago tryst. When the boy’s mother dies, McCracken goes to England to meet him. He finds a son cut in his father’s mold: a young athlete determined to put his body at risk to serve his country. But before Blaine can explain their relationship, Matt is snatched away, kidnapped by a band of Arab nationals intent on using McCracken’s strength to serve their own cause. The target? An Israeli weapon that they claim threatens the entire Arab world. To recover his son, McCracken must bring the Middle East back from the brink of war.
4. The Omicron Legion B&N

Quote:
A mysterious league of elite assassins targets ninety-six of the most powerful people in America, and Blaine McCracken must stop them before the murderers bring the country to its knees

There are ninety-six names on the list. They are those of businessmen, judges, and senators—the nation’s wealthiest and most powerful. And they are all going to die. A man named Takahashi has hired the world’s finest assassins to eliminate these men in secrecy and style, crossing names off the list without raising any suspicion. And they are killing ahead of schedule.

But someone has noticed the pattern of these seemingly unrelated deaths, and she knows enough to call Blaine McCracken. Takahashi didn’t consider the rogue American agent, and that is a grave mistake. His carefully orchestrated vendetta is just the sort of thing that McCracken lives to upset. He has made a career teaching lessons to those who underestimate him, and Takahashi’s league of assassins is next.
5. The Vengeance of the Tau B&N

Quote:
In Egypt, Blaine McCracken tracks down a secret society whose ancient weapon threatens the entire world

Far beneath the sands of Alexandria, an archaeological team digs deeper than anyone has before, seeking an ancient power older than the pyramids. What they unearth is an evil that threatens the whole world. First it targets the worst of humanity: Ex-Nazis, Central American warlords, and the pushers who peddle drugs to children are found massacred, ripped limb from limb without having fired a shot in their own defense. But the next to die will be ordinary people.

An insidious secret organization, the Tau, attempts to harness the vicious force as part of a plan for world domination. But Blaine McCracken is on their trail. The rogue American op has fought the worst men in the world, and he now faces something the likes of which he has never imagined.
