Free download of 1st book in David Hewson's 'Dante's Numbers' detective series

According to Sara Lloyd, at thedigitalist.net:

"Just as we are poised to publish the the seventh novel in David Hewson’s beguilingly atmospheric and addictive Rome series, Dante’s Numbers, David has shrewdly agreed to an experiment to give away the first of his novels featuring the popular detective, Nic Costa, as an unDRM’d ebook.

You can download the ebook from Scribd "

Apparently it'll only be up until October 15th this year. I've never done more than glance at the Scribd site, and I haven't tried downloading the book yet, but it sounds interesting at the very least.

I downloaded this as a PDF file. One must create a login account, supply email address and create a password.

They say they honor their memebers' privacy.

I'll give it a read later on.

Thank you.

I've just asked if it's possible to get this eBook in a format other then PDF that keeps the formatting. We'll see what happens.

The PDF appears to be the full story (but needs some work to go into Mobi format well). The Text file, however, was just a few lines of excerpts (at least when I downloaded it).

The PDF seems complete. But one of the first paragraphs states:

Quote:
Excerpted from A Season for the Dead by David Hewson
Copyright © 2004 by David Hewson. Excerpted by
permission of Dell, a division of Random House, Inc. All
That suggest it is not complete. The TXT has a horrible formatting and is essentially unreadable

The word "excerpt" is a poor choice of words. Perhaps someone here needs to give a dictionary to Dell or Random House as a free gift.

The PDF is 389 pages long and appears to be the complete novel.

The TXT file is unreadable and, in my opinion, would be an embarrassment to Dell or Random House executives.
