New Harlequin ebook Freebie "Boneyard" Thriller

Found a new Harlequin ebook Freebie: Boneyard by Michelle Gagnon

MIRA Imprint - Thriller

http://ebooks.eharlequin.com/370032E...A-D8D51E447445

Description
On the trail of a serial killer, the path splits in two...

FBI special agent Kelly Jones has worked on many disturbing cases in her career, but nothing like this. A mass grave site unearthed on the Appalachian Trail puts Kelly at the head of an investigation that crosses the line--from Massachusetts to Vermont, from wealthy vacationers to poor transients, from a serial killer to a copycat nemesis.

Assisted by law enforcement from both states and a forensic anthropologist, Kelly searches for the killers. But as darkness falls, another victim is taken. Kelly must race to save him before he joins the rest...in the boneyard.

Mira imprint isn't like most Harlequins

Definitely a good catch -- Mira is Harlequin's imprint for fiction by women writers. They've published a number of excellent books of interest to both men and women, and I believe they don't require books to follow any particular formula.

This isn't a criticism of Harlequin's romance imprints; I just wanted to highlight that this book might be of interest to readers that don't usually read Harlequin's offerings.

That's probably something most people don't realise is that Harlequin is no longer just sappy romance these days(though it is still a big part)
I have bought a number of action/adventure and thriller books by Jason Pinter, Cliff Ryder and Alex Archer over the last year.
The big pain is they still produce PDF rather than EPUB ebooks at the moment.Though the PDF ebooks read really well on the Sony reader.

Amazon Customer Reviews rating: 4.5 stars (out of 5).
Reviewer complaints: stilted dialogue with too many "sigh" words, graphic violent torture, frustrating cliffhanger ending (I think they meant it's a teaser to a next book).

An alternative to PDF for eHarlequin books is to download the book in Microsoft eBook (.lit) format where it loads into Microsoft eReader, then use ConvertLIT GUI and Calibre to get it into .lrf or .epub or whatever format:

0. You need these three ebook apps:
a. Microsoft eReader (eHarlequin offers a download link),
b. ConvertLIT GUI,
c. Calibre

1. Use Internet Explorer to download (or at least Firefox has always failed to work for me).

2. Locate the downloaded .LIT file (on Vista, mine went into ...\Documents\My Library

3. ConvertLIT GUI: "Downconvert"

4. Calibre: "Add Books", then "Convert E-books" (assuming you've already set up your conversion preferences under "Preferences").

Then load the converted file onto your e-book Reader as you normally do. The file will be in ...\Calibre_eBooks\<author name (in this case "Michelle Gagnon")>\<book title (in this case "Boneyard")>.
