I borrowed this from the library a while back and really enjoyed it.
The Boy in the Suitcase $1.99

http://www.amazon.com/The-Boy-Suitca...mm_pap_title_0

Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is a compulsive do-gooder who can't say no when someone asks for help—even when she knows better. When her estranged friend Karin leaves her a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous project yet. Inside the locker is a suitcase, and inside the suitcase is a three-year-old boy: naked and drugged, but alive.

Is the boy a victim of child trafficking? Can he be turned over to authorities, or will they only return him to whoever sold him? When Karin is discovered brutally murdered, Nina realizes that her life and the boy's are in jeopardy, too. In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is trying to hunt him down.

Had this one on my wishlist for a while - it's marked down to $3.99 for the August sale on Amazon:

The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars by Maurice Dekobra

One of the biggest bestsellers of all time, and one of the first and most influential spy novels of the twentieth century, is back in print for the first time since 1948

Alan Furst fans will note that train passengers in his bestselling thrillers are often observed reading The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars. It’s a smart detail: First published in 1927, the book was one of the twentieth century’s first massive bestsellers, selling over 15 million copies worldwide.

It’s the story of two tremendously charming characters who embark on a glamorous adventure on the Orient Express—and find themselves on a thrilling ride across Europe and into the just-barely unveiled territories of psychoanalysis and revolutionary socialism.

Gerard Seliman—technically, a Prince—is so discouraged by the demise of his marriage that he flees to London to become the personal assistant of a glamorous member of the British peerage, Lady Diana Wyndham. But he soon finds himself involved in a wild scheme by Lady Diana to save herself from looming financial ruin while simultaneously fending off rich lotharios. At the center of it all: a plan to rescue her rights to a Russian oil field now under the control of revolutionaries who don’t like capitalists.

The book that set the standard for intellectual thrillers of political and social intrigue, The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars, with its jetsetting and witty protagonists, is still as fresh a page-turner as ever—and as fun.

Ophelia O. and the Antenatal Mysteries by Tanya Jones


Originally published by Hodder Headline, 1995

Ophelia O, Yorkshire solicitor, mother of five and erstwhile leader of the Mortgage Bandits, is on maternity leave. Time for a peaceful month of bootee-knitting and pelvic floor exercises? But life in Rambleton is never that simple, not with an investigative journalist on her trail, sinister midwife in league with Ophelia's greatest enemy, competing eco-electricity schemes, lots of labradors and a missing trust deed and hedgehog. All Ophelia's legal acumen, imagination and sheer bloody-mindedness will be required if the Os - all eight of them - are going to get through this adventure unscathed...

Free: US Kindle: Habeas Porpoise (Solomon & Lord) by Paul Levine

I've been hoping for this one for quite a while, and today's my day.
The latest book in Paul Levine's Solomon & Lord series is free today:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007UPRPWY

A blend of courtroom action, mystery-style investigation, and light-hearted humor. The series features the romance between rule-bending lawyer Solomon and by-the-rulebook Lord, with repartee rather like the first season of the TV show Moonlighting.

Quote:
The love-hate relationship of Solomon & Lord continues. Sure, opposites attract, but they argue, too!

This time, it all starts with the kidnaping of a pair of trained dolphins from Miami’s Cetacean Park. When one of the ecoterrorists behind the raid turns up dead, his partner in eco-crime is charged with homicide, even though he didn’t pull the trigger. It’s called “felony murder,” and Solomon thinks it’s a bum rap. What he doesn’t count on is his lover and law partner Victoria Lord being named a special prosecutor.

Conflicts-of-interest abound, and Steve is up to his old tricks. At least, the mismatched legal duo agree on something...each one vows to win the case!
Enjoy!
KentE

THE DEEP BLUE ALIBI (The Solomon & Lord Series) Paul Levine is .99 at Amazon. So I picked it up.

Spoiler:
Quote:
Florida’s most mismatched law partners are back in this Edgar-nominated tale. A Coral Gables blueblood, Victoria Lord plays by the rules. A Coconut Grove beach bum, Steve Solomon makes up his own, starting with: “When the law doesn’t work, work the law.”

The action starts when a boat runs aground in the Florida Keys. Aboard are a thousand hundred-dollar bills and two men, one shot by a speargun. The other man is Victoria’s “Uncle Grif,” who desperately needs a lawyer...or two. But Grif, charged with murder, is a lawyer’s worst nightmare, a client who keeps secrets. Just what is he planning in the Florida Keys and why would he kill an investigator for the Environmental Protection Agency?

The tale roams from the streets of Miami to a waterfront nudist colony to a Key West courtroom with Solomon and Lord – squabblers extraordinaire – fighting all the way. Will they succeed in defending Grif? Will they learn the truth? And will they end the case as partners and lovers or enemies and litigants?

Also Solomon & Lord Sink or Swim (aka Drop Anchor?) (aka Solomon & Lord: To Hell and Back?) free @ smashwords (epub only) Words: 33,890 - but contains excerpts from the 4 novel series and "Lassiter."
Spoiler:
The sharpest lawyer to barely graduate from Key West School of Law, Steve Solomon is a beer and burger guy. Fresh from Yale, Victoria Lord is a Chardonnay and paté gal. The squabblers extraordinaire can't agree on "good morning," but somehow they're a winning team in court.

Steve plans a mysterious boat trip in the short story "Solomon & Lord Sink or Swim." He claims he's going fishing with Manuel Cruz, but Victoria isn't buying it. She knows that Cruz stole a bundle from Steve's favorite client. Victoria hops aboard to find out just what Steve has planned. The answer could get them both killed.

Thank you and I now have all four, plus a couple shorts.

The Road to Hell by Paul Levine free @ smashwords (epub, mobi, etc..) Words: 23,560 - but contains 2 excerpts - also free at Amazon
Spoiler:
“The Road to Hell” collects four stories by Paul Levine, the Edgar-nominated author of the bestselling Jake Lassiter series. Levine's heroes travel dark and dangerous paths as they confront devilish and powerful villains.

In “El Valiente en el Infierno,” (The Brave One in Hell), a 13-year-old Mexican boy tells his own story as he makes a treacherous midnight crossing into California in search of his father. The boy’s courage is tested when he runs into two gun-toting American vigilantes.

“Development Hell” imagines a pitch session in which a bedraggled Edgar Allan Poe squares off with a slick Hollywood producer who wants to make a cheesy slasher flick out of “The Pit and the Pendulum.” Bookgasm praised the story as “going straight to the funny bone.”

In “A Hell of a Crime,” a prosecutor prepares for a homicide trial while being pestered by his domineering mother, a famous lawyer herself. Just what role did she play in the murder? And how is the prosecutor’s enigmatic wife involved in the case?

Two of the author’s best-loved characters, Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord, appear in “Solomon & Lord: To Hell and Back.” The ethically-challenged Steve Solomon and the very proper Victoria Lord are mismatched Miami law partners. Steve says he's going fishing with Manuel Cruz, a sleazy con man. Victoria knows that Cruz is an unlikely fishing buddy. So just what is Steve up to now? Something between mischief and murder.

Trace by Warren Murphy

Originally published 1983: "In Hollywood, [Murphy] wrote The Eiger Sanction, starring Clint Eastwood, as well as Lethal Weapon II. His Trace books inspired the TV show "Murphy's Law."

Devlin Tracy is a very good insurance investigator in a profession that rewards success. He lives in a luxury condo on the Las Vegas Strip and only works when he feels like it. He also drinks vodka by the pint, cracks wise to damn-near everyone, and has what can charitably be described as a complicated relationship with his girlfriend. None of that matters to the Garrison Fidelity Insurance Company. They’re interested in results. Which is why they keep Trace on retainer.

Problem: A patient at a private clinic died, shortly after making his doctor the beneficiary of his insurance policy. Suspicious. Now a wealthy friend of the Garrison Fidelity is a patient at the same private clinic, and he isn’t doing well. Troubling. Solution: Send Trace, who has a natural way of shaking things up. On the surface everyone’s friendly and nothing points to murder, fraud or larceny. A late-night beatdown from two masked thugs sends a very different message, however, and tells Trace that he’s onto something. If only he could figure out what he’s onto.
