Music professor Gus LeGarde and his wife Camille are looking forward to a relaxing vacation on Paines Creek Beach in beautiful Cape Cod.

Missing masterpieces, Nazi blackmailers and a pesky amateur sleuth.

When a Dutch art dealer hides the stock from his gallery - rather than turn it over to his Nazi blackmailer - he pays with his life, leaving a treasure trove of modern masterpieces buried somewhere in Amsterdam, presumably lost forever. That is, until American art history student Zelda Richardson sticks her nose in.

After studying for a year in the Netherlands, Zelda scores an internship at the prestigious Amsterdam Museum, where she works on an exhibition of paintings and sculptures once stolen by the Nazis, lying unclaimed in Dutch museum depots almost seventy years later. When two women claim the same portrait of a young girl entitled Irises, Zelda is tasked with investigating the painting's history and soon finds evidence that one of the two women must be lying about her past. Before she can figure out which one it is and why, Zelda learns about the Dutch art dealer's concealed collection. And that Irises is the key to finding it all.

Her discoveries make her a target of someone willing to steal - and even kill - to find the missing paintings. As the list of suspects grows, Zelda realizes she has to track down the lost collection and unmask a killer if she wants to survive.

by Steve Higgs
$0.00, 338 pages, 4.4 out of 5.0 (28 reviews), #10 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Humor & Satire > General Humor
“This is so funny you will hurt yourself. Don’t read it on the bus!”

Tempest Michaels is the only paranormal investigator in the book.

There’s just one problem – he is convinced the paranormal doesn’t exist.

Tempest Michaels spends his days solving daft crimes that his clients have determined are paranormal in nature. They never are, of course, so he spends a lot of time pointing out that Great Aunt Agnes isn’t a witch, she is just ugly, or you don’t have spirits waking you each night, you just suffer from terrible flatulence.

The daftness is interrupted though when a serial killer dubbed “The Vampire” starts biting throats in his town. Despite being the only paranormal investigator in the book, he could have ignored the case, but a chance encounter with the alluring Officer Amanda Harper and his lonely heart demands he give his help when she asks for it.

Soon hip-deep in vampire wannabes that intend to kill him, aided by friends who are not that helpful, advised by a clearly deluded occult bookshop owner and encumbered by his mother’s attempts to marry him off because she wants grandchildren, Tempest Michaels has his work cut out if he wants to solve this case.

His mother wants him to marry – like literally anyone and produce grandchildren right now.

His Dachshunds want their dinner and maybe a treat under threat of pooping in his shoes.

And mostly he just wants to be left alone to meet a nice lady that he can have a relationship with.

Paranormal Nonsense is a funny, cozy mystery full of action and suspense and is the first in a long series of adventures for Tempest Michaels and his dysfunctional group of friends.

Interview with the Author

Q - What makes the Stage Door series special?

A – Part of what makes the Stage Door series special is its setting – onstage and backstage in a community theater group. The world of theater is a curious blend of real life and sparkles and glitter, and most people who are involved in amateur theater love it for exactly those reasons. Everyday life with the magic and excitement of a theater production on top – and with that comes lots of humor, drama, mayhem and heart.

All of this makes the Stage Door a perfect setting for humorous mysteries and romance – the wild, crazy, chaotic escapades of any bunch of egotistical wannabe actors and actresses means you’ll be laughing, crying or biting your nails in suspense. And with a good dash of musical theater thrown in, maybe you’ll even be dancing in the aisles!

Q - Do our readers have to read the Stage Door series in order?

A – As my books include both cozy mysteries and romantic comedies, a strict reading order isn’t really too important, but a common thread does run through them all. If you wanted to read them in order, this is probably a good start:

Stage Door: Love’s Theater
Stage Door: Playing Dead
Stage Door: A Cue to a Kill
Stage Door: The Art of Murder (coming soon)

Q – Why should our readers read the Stage Door series?

A – If you like sweet, clean romantic comedy or funny murder mysteries I think you’ll really enjoy the Stage Door series. One of the best things about Amazon is that it allows readers to take a chance on new writers like me. You can get enjoyable cozy mysteries delivered to your Kindle for less than the price of a cup of coffee – and if you’ve got a good cup of coffee to hand, all the better!

Q – What is your favorite kind of book? Would the Stage Door series fit on that list?

A - Absolutely! I’m a fan of mysteries in general and love all the classics – from The Cat Who books and Murder She Wrote to Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie. Mix in a dash of theater and suddenly all the world really is a stage. Actually, have you ever noticed how ‘theatrical’ the classic mysteries were? Holmes was a born performer and there was always an actor in the best Agatha Christie stories.

The theatrical edge to the Stage Door series means I can write a book that can make me laugh and transport me away from the troubles of the world but at the same time feature real-life situations, with solid, sensible characters and storylines that make me think.

Plus, I’ve spent too much time playing around in community theater myself and I love the people. I guess I’ve just combined two things that I really love. I’m pretty sure you’ll end up loving them too.

His life is turned upside down when Karrie hitchhikes almost three-hundred miles to be with him but doesn't really want to be with him. Then, as if that wasn't enough, someone is out to kill him.

Between her job as head librarian at Clear Creek Public Library, and restoring 1965 Mustangs with her dad, Sabrina Elliott stays too busy to have a social life. In fact, she's forty-one and never been married.

Sabrina's life is changed when Hunter's daughter comes to her at the library instead of to her father. She quickly realizes that Karrie is afraid of her father. What has caused her mistrust of all people and why did she run away? Can Sabrina encourage a relationship between a father and daughter who have been virtual strangers for fifteen years?

All three of them must come together to free themselves of the danger from more than one direction. But can they all come together to form a family? Will they each let God work in their lives to help them to overcome fear, revenge, and loneliness.

Is A Serial Killer On The Loose?

Nate Burns, a seasoned detective, knelt beside the dead girl. This wasn’t Nate’s first homicide; it wasn’t even the first murder of a prostitute that he’d investigated. But, this one bothered him. Maybe it was her youth; she appeared to be in her early twenties. Maybe it was her looks, as death had yet to rob her of her beauty. Maybe she reminded him of his daughter, Lizzie, who was only a few years younger. Maybe it was something else entirely.

˃˃˃ A Gritty, Riveting Thriller

With little to no evidence and only vague descriptions to go on, Nate and his partner Manny Trujillo are determined to seek the truth, no matter where that journey leads them. The story moves first in one direction, and then in another. The ending? You’ll never see that coming.

Very well-written, enthralling and impossible to put down, The Tenth Nail is a thriller you won’t forget.

Blood and Groom (Sasha Jackson Mysteries Book 1)
by Jill Edmondson
$0.00, 256 pages, 4.0 out of 5.0 (39 reviews), #29 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Hard-Boiled
When not talking dirty at her part time phone sex job, or singing cheesy cover tunes in generic suburban bars, fledgling private investigator Sasha Jackson is spending her days trying to figure out how ‘till death do us part’ applies to her jilted client.
Christine Arvisais was dumped by her gold plated fiancé days before mailing the wedding invitations. Four months later, he was shot in a Toronto ravine during his Saturday morning jog. Christine says she was wrapped in seaweed and bathing in mud when Gordon Hanes went to the mahogany paneled VIP room in the sky.
Then another former fiancé falls victim to another femme fatale and it appears Cupid’s bow is no match for the Grim Reaper’s scythe.
As Sasha continues her investigation, she uncovers a pattern of guys who skipped ‘I do’ and now never will. It seems a coincidence, until Sasha learns the real meaning of Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
With her dad driving her crazy via long distance, and her brother steeped in confusion about his own romantic comedy of Eros, Sasha must figure out who’s whacking would-be grooms before it becomes a case of four funerals and a wedding.

- Reviews for Blood and Groom -

“The toughest fictional woman P.I. in Canada.” -Bill Selnes, Mysteries and More 

"Sasha Jackson: she's tough, can drink with the best of 'em, and isn't afraid to bend the rules." (Karen Russell,

"Fans of strong female characters and fans of detective novels will enjoy this story. This was a fun read, and I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble Toronto’s sexiest new detective can get in to in her second book." (

“Edmondson writes a fast-moving book with a hip protagonist. I give Blood and Groom a rating of Hel-O since Jill Edmondson is a new-to-me author and Blood and Groom is a fast-paced, fun read.” (Helen Ginger, Blog)

“Sasha Jackson is one of the best literary characters I’ve discovered of late. She’s an edgy and unconventional ex-musician turned private investigator. Canadian author Jill Edmondson spins a marvelous yarn with a sense of humor. She shines a bright light on Toronto. Biting humor, pop references and colorful characters make Blood and Groom a fun read.” (Amy Steele,

"Blood and Groom is a sprightly read - a promising start to a new series and a fresh writing career." (Joan Barfoot, The London Free Press)

"Blood and Groom's main character, newly licensed downtown Toronto P.I. (and former rock singer) Sasha Jackson, has enough sass and quirk to hold a reader's interest." (Quill & Quire )

"The style is fresh, well-paced and uses dialogue that feels real. Toronto is nicely portrayed as a place fit for dispatching grooms. Edmondson shows the storytelling skill to turn this into a series with room to grow." (The Hamilton Spectator)

“Blood and Groom is full of down-to-earth people and pithy portrayals of some weird characters. Conversations are snappy. It is a light, fun read and I’d be interested in seeing future stories.” (The Waterloo Region Record)

"It's a quick, entertaining read best enjoyed with double vodka tonics and morning after grilled cheeses." ( Blog )

"Parts are very funny -- especially the sex chat and Sasha's nerdy pal Victor, and her gambler dad... Bizarre! Not as bizarre as the ending, with romance and finance combined to deadly effect." (Lucille Redmond, Ireland Evening Herald)

"A fast-paced, soft-boiled novel with a distinctive voice and a sassy protagonist." (Jim Napier, The Sherbrooke Record).

"The book is fast-paced... and the tone is the quick and funny style that appeals to fans of Janet Evanovich. There's a lot of promise here and we'll look forward to Sasha Jackson's next adventure." (Margaret Cannon, The Globe & Mail)

“Jill Edmondson’s Blood and Groom is a fast-paced whipcrack of a book — a a little edgy and a lot of fun.” (

Jobe's Daughter: A Jobe Carson Mystery Book 1 of 4
by Jerry Farmer
$0.00, 307 pages, 4.4 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #28 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Hard-Boiled
Jobe Carson is a private detective of circumstance—as in victim of circumstance. His wife mysteriously disappeared while out on a run one evening, leaving Jobe with all the emotional, practical, and financial responsibilities of single fatherhood of three children—Kiah—a grumbling sharp-tongued 18-year-old, Jack—16-year-old sport, videogame, and paintball enthusiast, and Jobe’s only daughter, Miranda, Mir for short, wise beyond her 11 almost 12 years. His detective career is also hampered by the local police still thinking he may be responsible in some way for his wife’s disappearance.
Jobe’s current problem is finding the time, amidst his fatherhood duties, to solve a crime involving the murder, dismemberment and shrink-wrapping of a nameless person who’s a recent victim of food network culture interpreted by a psychopath. Hired by a less than scrupulous insurance company, Jobe first has to find out who the poor scattered dead person is, then who carved him up. The story is set in Olympia, Washington, in the pacific northwest. Suspects include an aging plastic surgery-enhanced interior décor proprietor, a gay retiree, a frowsy housewife and a trust fund heir who might have trusted the police wouldn’t look too close at his father’s recent gone-missing status. There’s even an ex-marine semi-pro bowler, an FBI lab investigator, and a lawyer with a well-whetted wit. Not to mention a county coroner slash nemesis with a scalpel to grind. A classic whodunit in the vein of Nero Wolfe or J.A. Jance. The book’s climax is as dramatic as any Perry Mason denouement.
One of the few detective mystery novels that also includes practical time-saving recipes any single parent could cook for the family.

The Complete Sherlock Holmes
by Arthur Conan Doyle
$0.00, 1202 pages, 4.5 out of 5.0 (3,897 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Collections & Anthologies
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly - see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre.

Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to Conan Doyle's death in 1930. The stories cover a period from around 1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914.

BOOK #3 - WHY: Puzzles 25 - 36

This is unlike any mystery or thriller book you’ve ever read before. You play the sleuth, and as the story unfolds you will be tasked with solving puzzles to prevent a murder from happening.

In this five-book series, you’ll uncover the mind and motivations of a nefarious killer who is plotting to commit an unspeakable crime.

Each book contains an epistolary collection of emails, texts, and letters, delivered to thriller author J.A. Konrath, by a serial killer. This psychopath is sending detailed, cryptic puzzles and brain teasers that lead to clues about who will be murdered, why, when, where, and how.

Some of the puzzles are easy to figure out. Others are much more devious.

Do you like solving mysteries? Do you enjoy brain teasers or escape-the-room games? Are you good at spotting clues?

Only you can stop a murder.

Are you smart enough?
Are you brave enough?
Let the games begin…

#1 STOP A MURDER – HOW: Puzzles 1 - 12
#2 STOP A MURDER – WHERE: Puzzles 13 - 24
#3 STOP A MURDER – WHY: Puzzles 25 - 36
#4 STOP A MURDER – WHO: Puzzles 37 - 48
#5 STOP A MURDER – WHEN: Puzzles 49 - 60


This series works best with an internet connection, using a Kindle Fire or Kindle app to enter answers on the killer's website. An e-ink Kindle will work, but the interface will be smoother if used in conjunction with a computer or smart phone.

While each book in this series can be read and enjoyed on its own, the experience will be richer if read in order, and if the internet is used.

Over the five book series, you'll need to answer over seventy puzzles. When you answer correctly, you are rewarded with more clues that can stop a murder and reveal the killer's identity.

Some spirits cannot rest. They left their bodies under conditions of great anguish and despair. It would take much to reconcile the violence of their death with the beauty and peacefulness of their life.
Deniigi found the new invaders of his ancient campground to be different than those of the past. They were careful not to walk on the sacred burial mound in their back yard. They were interested in his culture and respectful of his people. When one of the young invaders saw him in the kitchen she looked surprised, but she didn't run away. Deniigi was interested in these new invaders.
The woman who joined the invaders was the biggest surprise to Deniigi. She looked remarkably like his beloved Yakone, except for one thing. She had white skin!

A Perfect Nightmare
by Andrea Noel
$0.00, 299 pages, 3.3 out of 5.0 (3 reviews), #152 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Private Investigators
A Perfect Nightmare is a story about four friends and their fierce devotion to one another. With nothing but bright skies and blue water in their weekend forecast, a trip to paradise turns into a nightmare from hell for Allie and her three friends when her friend Rebecca’s husband Brennan is accused of murder.

While out for a stroll with her dog Mia on the first night of their stay, Allie stumbles upon a woman’s body outside the resort stretched out on a lawn chair as blood seeps from a gash on her head.

Maintaining his innocence, dark secrets from Brennan’s past begin to unravel, threatening the life he has created for himself and his family. Authorities uncover a series of phone calls between him and the victim dating back five years, proving a relationship did in fact exist. As if the situation could get any worse, an anonymous tip leads to the discovery of the victim’s locket inside Brennan and Rebecca’s hotel room. Knowing in their hearts that they are as thick as thieves with an unbreakable bond stronger than steel, the friends set out to prove his innocence. Individually they are just women, but together they form an impenetrable army of four, ready for war.

When life begins, you are born into a family not of your choosing. As we grow, the word family expands to define those whom we can lean on in time of need. It is the human condition to crave meaningful relationships, and I think women everywhere who share this idea will find joy in reading about the true meaning of friendship that is described in this story.

The Golden Venus Affair
by Angus MacVicar
$0.00, 203 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #68 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Private Investigators
When Bruce McLintock is thrown out of a Glasgow nightclub called the Golden Venus, drunk and incapable, he has just lost his wife, his job on the Courier, his self-respect.

But he is taken in hand by Detective Chief Inspector Archie MacPherson and begins a new life as a freelance journalist and private investigator, with Mary Jo Milliken, capable, warm-hearted, the wife of a permanent invalid, as his secretary.

This is McLintock’s first important case, a drama involving blackmail, lust and greed played out against a background of crime and political unrest in Scotland and Northern Ireland. His unmasking of ‘the big boss’, who whistles Lord of the Dance, provides a sensational twist at the end.

Leavening the violent action is a tender—and unusual—love story.

Angus MacVicar, who is married with one son, was born in Argyll in 1908. He started to write on leaving Glasgow University in 1931, and apart from eighteen months as editor of The Campbeltown Courier and five years as a temporary soldier during the war—when as an officer in the Royal Scots Fusiliers he took part in the assault landings on Madagascar, Sicily and Italy and was mentioned in dispatches at Anzio—he has been a freelance ever since. His autobiography Salt in my Porridge, published in January 1971, is in its fourth impression.

by Scott F Neve
$0.00, 73 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #45 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Women's Fiction > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Detective
Lord Knight began by saying, "I need your help, Robbre. No doubt you are aware of my vast holdings in the Kings Trust Company (It was a French version of the famous English insurance company Lloyds of London that would insure anything for anyone for millions and billions of dollars). My friends in the home office have shared some very disturbing news with me. The company was forced to pay on several bogus claims. It has nearly ruined us."
"How can I help, father?" the sixteen-year old, a recent finishing school graduate, asked with growing curiosity.
The mature father smiled with pride as he said, "You have your mother's intuition and my acumen for good business, but you have a special gift. I know that you could turn the tables on those blighters. The soulless wretches claim that they are robbed of their jewels just so they can get the insurance money. The bloody stupid company wrote them checks without thoroughly investigating the crimes.
I want those buggers to be brought to justice, but not by the law of the land. There are too many good people involved that could be destroyed if the criminals sought vengeance once they were caught. What I desire for you to do is find the miscreants, recover the supposedly stolen items and then bring the jewels to me. I will take the pleasure of rubbing their noses in the truth in the light of day. If I am right, they will gladly pay back the insurance money plus a finder's fee just to keep their names out of the Times and their backsides out of the pokey."
Robbre asked, "Don’t you think that I am a tad young for this important assignment. Surely you and your friends must know of other more experienced men who could do the job. What if I get caught and they guess that you sent me?"
Lord Knight said, "It is your youthful looks that I am counting on to blind the world to the truth. You must put away your love of books to embrace the true mysteries of life. I will secretly bankroll your venture, but they will think that you are a prodigal playboy bent on squandering his inheritance. Your special talents will see you through."
Lady Ariane Knight rushed in as she said, "Robbre dear. The whole thing was my brilliant idea. You need a break from the tedium of home and your studies. This is a golden opportunity for you to spread your wings and prove that you can fly.
You are a man now. You will charm these illicit women into revealing where they hid the jewels that were supposedly robbed from them. When they are in your hands or in your arms, you will be able to read their most secret and intimate thoughts. Your father and I trust that you will not soil yourself, your good reputation, or the family name."
Robbre smiled and hugged them both before he said, "I will do it for you. I pray that I will live up to your grand expectations. We shall see if everything that you have taught me is enough to face the world."
Lord Knight laughed and then he said, "You are more than a match for the slow witted criminals of this world. It is the crafty foxes of the fair sex that you must beware of. They will skin you alive, if you let them."
Lady Ariane placed her hand on her son's chest before she said, "You must always think with your heart. That is where your strength, courage, and wisdom are stored. If you think with your head, you will be too slow. You will only be able to react to whatever life throws at you. If you think with your manhood, you will surely die. A man can live for years without a soul, but he is full of bitterness and vile thoughts. Trust in your heart and let the peace that comes from it guide you in all your decisions."
"I'll do it!" he announced as he sprang into her open arms.

Investigator Brian Williams accepts a new position that leads him into the dark side of the life insurance business. Murder sometimes has a motive, life insurance, as Brian soon finds out. Brian and Carol discover that life in Chicago is fast paced and full of surprises.

Brian sat on the pew listening to his father preach, just like every other Sunday. The voice he heard did not sound like his fathers, a voice he had not heard before. “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” Brian understood that the “house” referred to him, and he stood up in the middle of his father’s sermon and went to the altar. The voice he heard burned into his mind, words he would never forget.
Brian Williams finished high school and joined marines. Clay Butler and Brian became good friends serving together as MP’s during their time in the service and often talked about having their own detective business someday.
After his discharge from the service, Brain married Carol and worked several jobs before starting his own detective business.
Life is about to change with an offer from a large life insurance company in Chicago.

Cold Press is the gripping debut thriller by British writer David Bradwell - former winner of the PPA British Magazine Writer of the Year Award and writer for for publications as diverse as Smash Hits and the Sunday Times.

It's book one in the Anna Burgin mystery series.

Read the reviews on Amazon:

"I loved this book right from the very first chapter. The style of writing gets you involved very quickly and draws you in, so much so that you feel the excitement, the tense tingling sensation of mystery and the shock at 'I didn't see that coming'. A great read and one I would highly recommend."

"A very good read, many twists, both leading and misleading - but the surprise ending is a masterpiece."

David Wyck is found murdered the next morning in a locked-room and while suspicion initially points to Anne, it becomes apparent that several of Wyck’s guests had a motive for the crime. The narrator of the story, the guest Anne is in love with, prays that the culprit is ‘Anybody but Anne.’

In a structural twist, Detective Fleming Stone appears in the preamble and returns in the third act, book-ending the mystery, rather than merely appearing in the denouement.

Charmed Fates: A Paranormal Mpreg Gay Romance (The Omega Date Diaries)
by Odin Nightshade
$0.00, 178 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (39 reviews), #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender eBooks > Travel

When it comes to true love, can an open mind be more important than an open heart?

***Charmed Fates is a standalone novel; you don't need to read any of the other books in the OmegaDate Diaries series to enjoy this one.***

Spirits, souls and spells, moon-phases, mysticism and magic; these are the amazing phenomena that the world around us is made of.

That’s how Indigo Lockwood sees things, anyway. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a good luck charm in the world that could save him from having his heart broken by an abusive fiancé two years ago, and Indigo’s been desperately lonely ever since.

Aaron North, on the other hand, doesn’t believe in all that mumbo-jumbo. Spending his days writing snarky, skeptical articles for anti-paranormal magazines, Aaron’s life is consumed by logic and what’s directly in front of him. Love at first sight? Sheer nonsense. Fate? He’s not buying it. The fact that his latest gig—an article setting out to debunk a haunted bed & breakfast in the quaint town of Crosswinds—thrusts him directly into the path of sexy, free-spirited Indigo is just a coincidence.

But is Aaron willing to open up his mind to a world beyond the physical, while Indigo struggles to open up his heart after his devastating loss? And how many ‘coincidences’ need to occur before they both stop denying destiny?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This book contains hot and lusty male on male action involving frenzied bareback sex, shapeshifting wolves, knotting and a sweet and tender happily-ever-after. Not recommended for those that blush easily.

Mandarin Yellow: A Mystery Introducing Socrates Cheng (Socrates Cheng mysteries Book 1)
by Steven M. Roth
$0.00, 338 pages, 4.1 out of 5.0 (75 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > United States > Asian American
Conspiracy, the theft of a valuable historic object from a Washington, DC art gallery, suspense and murder -- It's all here in this mystery whose roots go back to World War II in China, and come forward to modern-day Washington and its Chinatown.

Why would a burglar break into a Washington, DC art gallery and steal an historic fountain pen worth $2200, but leave behind other art and cultural objects worth tens of thousands of dollars each? And why would someone else later commit murder to protect the burglar’s secret?

These are some of the questions that confront Socrates Cheng — an American of Chinese and Greek heritage — in this intricate murder mystery as Socrates investigates the burglary and attempts to recover the pen, all in an effort to curry favor with his lover’s estranged father who is the leader of a Washington and Shanghai based criminal Triad.

In a search that takes him from Georgetown to Chinatown and elsewhere in Washington, Socrates finds himself threatened, physically assaulted, suspected of having committed murder, jailed for a time, and constantly confronted by conflicts arising out of his three disparate cultures. Yet he is neither daunted nor deterred by these obstacles. Instead, Socrates draws upon his deep knowledge of vintage fountain pens, Chinese history, and the Mandarin language to puzzle out the complex motives behind the burglary and murders, until he finally uncovers the identities of the criminals and makes a discovery that forever changes his life and the lives of everyone else involved.

Mandarin Yellow involves ethnic and cultural conflict, forbidden love, friendships sustained and friendships lost, and the ever present and sometimes deadly immutable law of unintended consequences.

Mandarin Yellow is an intelligent mystery that sometimes is funny and sometimes sad, occasionally is irreverent, and always is suspenseful. Mandarin Yellow will appeal to readers of modern noir murder mysteries, to collectors of vintage fountain pens, and to people interested in the culture and history of 20th century China and in the Chinese experience in modern America.

Notes and Tips

I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.

I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.

The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.

If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.

If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.

The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.

Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.

Free book searches on Amazon

Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:

Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.

From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.

Those same searches with a keyword:

Reddit Groups

There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.


The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.

Galaxy Magazine

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

​They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online.​ Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.


If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.


Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.


Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
