Damn these Geographic Restrictions - Help!!

Ok I have been looking for the Coyote Series by Allen Steele for download here in the UK. Now I have found the series on mobipocket and I can download them all except the 5th book!!!! All the other books I can download including book 6 wtf??

SO I looked on the UK version of Books on Board and again I seem to be able to download them but Book 5 is $20 wtf again lol!!! Why is this book so special??

Same problem with a series I want. Seems a very shortsighted view to lock out a large number of potential purchases in the name of geographical restrictions.

Is it an option to look via the darknet?

Alternatively, micropay from Fictionwise or buying a gift certificate from Diesel (not tried that yet) might work

Have someone from California or US buy it for you. Send them a paypal, have them buy it and then email it to you. I am both in California and have paypal.
Seems easy enough to get around it.

Actually, might have been thinking of the wrong one - not sure if this one was available in the usual places from memory or not, would have to check later.

Yeah I suppose the only thing to do is contact my relatives living in the US, what a faf just too get a damn book lol. I don't know if a proxy will work as I think mobipocket base it on where your credit card is registered, could be wrong though.

Fictionwise has it for $7.99 and with them it works when you use a valid US address and pay using your normal CC.
