Please help me check formatting on Kindle

I'm helping a friend format a book for free online distribution.

(The paperback version sells at Amazon for $20 but he's giving away the eBook to build some buzz for his next book.)

Anyway, I don't have a Kindle, so I downloaded the eBook after posting it, and I am viewing it in the "Kindle for PC" reader program.

There is a ONE SPACE indent at the start of every paragraph. This extra indent doesn't show up in the PDF or other formats.

The eBook distributor says its a bug in "Kindle for PC" and the book will look fine on a real Kindle, but I would like independent verification. Do you see the extra space at the start of each paragraph in the body of the book?

If you can check this on a real Kindle, please e-mail me the results at fakefir@myway.com!

Here's the link where you can download the Kindle book, as well as other versions:

The book is legal fiction / thriller.

WARNING: the book contains adult content and sexual situations, as they say on TV.

Thank you!

It's got a 4 char (or perhaps it's one tab char) indent.
