2016 is a busy year for the City of Salford. The place is still fighting for some limelight after years of being overshadowed by their more famous neighbour across the river, Manchester. One thing that makes Salford different is that the residents have voted to have an elected Mayor. The first was elected in 2012, but his term has come to an end and he's standing down. Who can replace him? Who cares? Well, someone didn't want the old Mayor to leave easy. They stole his car and put a body in the boot. That's a hell of way to say goodbye. Melia, meanwhile, is given the job of protecting the plethora of new candidates. It would be straightforward but she is distracted by her cousin Liv, who tells her that her lodger has vanished. Skipped town? Didn't pay the rent? That's normal for a teenager, surely. After all, no one is saying she's dead. Yet. But Lolly is not the only missing person, and Melia's more concerned about the others, because one of them is her boyfriend, Mickey. Luckily, she can't even begin to speculate on what happened to him. If she knew he was chained up in an animal stall, it would hurt her even more than the fact he simply isn't available for her. She's had to get used to that, over the years. No, she simply wants news. Where is he? What has happened to him? In the febrile atmosphere of the election campaign, she has to fight for attention. No one wants to listen to the crazy lady - they have enough mad people standing for Mayor. Someone has to win. The problem for Salford is that too many, it seems, are going to lose.

Sex.

It’s always on my mind. It follows me wherever I go. I can’t get enough of it. Can’t satiate the hunger, the desire, the addiction.

It’s who I am.

˃˃˃ But I’m also a writer. You might have seen my name around. Or perhaps not.

There was a time I collected one rejection letter after the other. Editors said my prose was cold, lifeless, emotionless, and worst of all, lacking real life experience. I had thought that the love of my life, Stella, would be my muse. But as much as I lusted for her”"as much as I’d became a slave to my desires for her”"my prose still suffered.

˃˃˃ But then a beautiful young woman by the name of Tara came into my life.

She made me an offer I could not possibly refuse. An offer to be her “handyman.” The job would involve murder, but it would also involve raw sex, and pain, and it would provide me with an experience that would be injected directly into my first novel. The novel that would eventually take New York City by storm.

Savage Sins.

Have I sold my soul to the devil only to become the writer I always dreamed about? Have I finally tamed my desires? Or have they only grown more as I’ve grown more famous and wealthy? Will more people die so that my words can live?

Enter into my world and find out.

Oh, and how should you address me?

Just call me The Handyman.

When young, beautiful, and soon-to-be-published university student, Rese Goddard commits suicide, everyone who knows her finds it impossible to believe, and it seems that, six months later, someone still doesn’t believe it. Who keeps calling the Owen’s Park police department, insisting that reading Rese's journal will prove Rese was murdered? Officer Matt Linkous has clear orders after the state police also receive a number of the mysterious calls: “Find her journal.”

Rese’s sister, Amanda, doesn’t believe she killed herself either, so she hires a private investigator, Cass McKenzie, and turns over Rese's first and last book manuscript, a contest-winning collection of short stories, saying “I think this book got her killed.” In spite of this dire suspicion, Cass agrees to take the case and read the unpublished manuscript to see if she can find any clues.

As the detective and the investigator separately immerse themselves in Rese’s world via her writings, their investigations draw them together. A picture of the dead woman’s life emerges, and the conclusion of suicide becomes harder to believe. The journal and stories both make it clear: Rese Goddard was happy at the time of death.

For Rese’s friend and mentor, Lillian Walsh, news that Rese’s book of stories is complete – and has been found – gives her the chance to honor Rese’s life by seeing the book published. But if Amanda is right about her sister's manuscript, who else might be in danger? As a publication date draws nearer, the body count grows. Only the truth can stop the killer, but can Cass and Matt discover the killer's identity before they strike again?

Mystery and Suspense:The Tipping Point: A mystery thriller full of intrigue about greed, fraud and murder... (International Mystery: Book 1)
by Walter Danley
$0.00, 555 pages, 3.9 out of 5.0 (109 reviews), #9 in International Mystery & Crime (Kindle Store)
The Tipping Point: A Wainwright Mystery is a suspense novel set in 1978. Garth Wainwright is one of the ten business partners of CapVest, a successful national real estate investment firm. Wainwright is invited to join one of those partners, Tom Burke, and his wife for a skiing holiday in Aspen. His invitation came from Lacey Kinkaid, Burke’s lawyer and Wainwrights new love interest. The foursome is having a fun February vacation together—until Burke’s mysterious death pushes Wainwright’s buttons to learn the motive for his death.
If Tom Burke had not died on the slopes of Aspen Mountain, Wainwright would never have risked losing everything. However, his suspicious death launched an avalanche—a tipping point—involving nine business partners and a hefty helping of greed, complicity, and murder.
Wainwright returns to company headquarters in Bellevue Washington to dig for clues for a motive for murder. His questions met with suspicion and skepticism from his partners. “Just leave it alone, Garth” or “Let the cops handle this,” Wainwright questions his qualifications to continue, but his bulldog mindset drives him to keep probing for an answer. As he searches for a reason for Burke to die, he uncovers a conspiracy of fraud far bigger than anyone could have imagined.

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:

Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.


Reddit Groups

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

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


eReaderIQ

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.


BookBub

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.


Overdrive

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.


Gutenberg

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

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.
