The Gray and Guilty Sea by Scott William Carter 

FREE July 23-July 31, 2014
 
Winner of the Oregon Book Award 

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That’s how people describe Garrison Gage, and that’s when they’re being charitable.

After his wife’s brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon.

He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife’s death is his fault.

But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation – forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl’s murder.

perf5.500x8.500.inddShe Overheard Murder by Jean Sheldon 

99cents July 24-27, 2014
 
Finalist Lambda Literary Award 
The Nic and Nora Mystery series-mysteries solved by lesbian amateur detectives in post-World War II Chicago. 

On October 29, 1945, Nic Owen made her debut appearance as a radio detective on the new show Inez Ingalls, Private Eye. Hired only weeks earlier to read ad copy and work as an understudy, the murder of the shows star propels Nic to the lead role and a top spot on the list of suspects. Cecil Park, husband of the murdered woman, wants answers, as does Nora Hahn, Carolyn’s ‘special friend’ for fourteen years.

 

See what readers are saying:
 
She Overheard Murder serves up an enticing menu full of clues, close calls, and murder. Adding to the atmosphere is the deliciously authentic background of early radio and post-World War Chicago. …The characters are as interesting as the plot, which along with Sheldon’s excellent prose make this a winner. By Alice Lynn

Sheldon takes care to show her characters as normal men and women, who grieve when they suffer from loss, who are lonely for human discussion and interaction, who struggle with the same issues in different ways. By so doing, she demolishes the language that surrounds the homosexual lifestyle: that is, that being a homosexual is only about sexuality and not about love, life and family. Her characters, both lesbian and straight, are people who desire interaction, companionship and understanding.… Continue reading

Sitting atop the town’s water tower, pastor Vance Howard finds himself drawn deep into a conversation with a suicidal man named Jake.

A man that brings to light the horrors of Vance’s own past. Horrors that cause Vance to question his faith, sanity, and everything he thought he was capable of… Compulsion is the gripping short story that causes one to ask “is there a limit to forgiveness…?” 

See what reviewers are saying:  
 
This book was engaging from the beginning to the end. The story was well thought out and the twists kept the pace of the story moving. There was enough detail to make me feel like I knew the characters, felt the conflict, and was satisfied with the resolution. All in all, the book had all the right pieces and flow to make it successful.” Kirstin Puliofff

“This short story was a great read that made you rethink forgiveness. Some of us have this idea that we can forgive easily, ourselves or others, but this book brings into perspective how hard forgiveness can be. After reading Compulsion I realized that by trying to be so “good” at forgiving we overlook the fact that we are only human, forgiveness can take time, and it has to be sought after. Also there can be a fine line between good and evil. This book is not predictable.” by blfox123

Silver Lies: A Silver Rush Mystery by Ann Parker

#1 (Silver Rush Mysteries)

99cents July 19-29, 2014

Meet Inez Stannert, the poker-playing, straight-talking, gun-toting owner of the Silver Queen Saloon and the heroine of Parker’s excellent debut, set in wintry Leadville, Colo., during the 1879 silver boom.

Inez is married, yet her husband disappeared six months earlier with nary a trace. Her partner at the saloon, Abe Jackson, happens to be a free black man, to the dismay of much of Leadville’s uptight and prejudiced populace.

When a frozen corpse turns up in the mucky alley behind the saloon, Inez and Abe, still reeling from the damage caused by a barroom brawl, are shocked to learn it’s their friend, precious-metals assayer Joe Rose. Joe, it seems, had a gambling problem and a nasty secret.

His death puts Inez and Abe at odds with a crooked lawman, an infamous madam, a spurned suitor and the mysterious stranger who rides into town as the new minister. Drawing on historic facts and figures of 1870s Colorado, Parker tells a gripping tale of love, greed and murder in the Old West, with a cast of convincing, larger-than-life characters, including a brief appearance from Bat Masterson himself. Inez is a woman well ahead of her time and a welcome addition to the genre, as is Parker, who has left enough loose ends to beckon readers to the next Leadville mystery.

WATER: A Vic Bengston Investigation

by Richard J. Schneider

$2.99- July 19, 2014

A powerful political figure is found dead in Denver’s South Platte River, the source of vital water sought by farmers, land developers, and politicians.

Investigative reporter Vic Bengston, a baby boomer returning to journalism after 25 years in the corporate world, gets the sensational first day story on a fluke. But then his editors pull him off the story, turning it over to the “old pros.”

Bucking the cops and his bosses, Vic chases down leads on his own, taking him to the heights of Colorado political power, into the life and death struggle over water in farm country and, finally, to a deadly confrontation with the killer.

WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT “WATER”

“Great mystery! Very hard to put down. Found the plot woven into the water rights issues in Colorado very interesting. Grabs your attention immediately, setting your mind in a tizzy trying to figure out who did it. Thirsty for Water. Situations are contemporary and the political background completely believable. The Vic Bengston series should gain many devoted readers as it unfolds. Much more than your typical who-done-it. Controlling water (the substance) is crucial to Colorado’s economy, and Water (the book) does an exceptional job of explaining that, plus it is an interesting tale.” Amazon reviewer
