The Cleanup – The unlikely tale of an unsuccessful cop – A gritty crime thriller – $1.99 0 comments

Matthew Worth is a mess. Somewhere between a good cop and a bad screwup, he botched a marriage and a career. His fellow officers think he’s a joke. His commanders are tired of cutting him breaks. Even his wife has left him for a flashy homicide detective.
Busted to night patrol at a robbery-prone Omaha supermarket, Worth is doing time, wearing his uniform and asking shoppers if they want paper or plastic. If that isn’t enough, he suspects he might be falling for Gwen, the shy checkout girl who may be an even bigger mess than he is. It couldn’t get any worse. Until it does.
When Gwen comes to him one night scared and desperate for help, Worth discovers just how far he’s willing to go to protect and serve. The next thing he knows, he’s driving a stolen car with a corpse in the trunk, a pistol in the glove box, and no way to turn back. Everything he doesn’t know could get them killed. And things haven’t even begun to get messy yet….

Right Church, Wrong Pew (99 cents) By all reports Ernie Struthers got what was coming to him . . . But erstwhile reporter Carlton Withers sure wishes Struthers hadn’t turned up dead on his front porch. As the only person, presumably, in town with a motive to kill Struthers, Withers is hard pressed to prove his innocence.
With the evidence stacked against him and mounting by the day, Withers turns to his trusted neighbour, retired police inspector Hanson Eberley, and Hannah Klovack, a newly-arrived news photographer from Toronto, to help clear his name.
Hole In One (99 cents) When old Charlie Tinkelpaugh is killed on the third hole of the Bosky Dell golf course, a series of ever-more-strange events is set in motion, and only Carlton Withers, inept golfer and sometimes-employee of the Silver Falls Lancer, can put the pieces of the puzzle together.
With the help of his colleague-slash-girlfriend, Hanna Klovack, and local Ojibwa elder Joe Herkimer, a.k.a. Running Elk, Withers must unravel the complex web of clues that lead to Tinkelpaugh’s murderer . . . and that may also reveal who is behind the illegal sale of the Bosky Dell golf course to a local development corporation.

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think – $1.99 0 comments

How do you kill 11 million people? Or, to be precise, 11,283,000 people.
Andy Andrews believes that good answers come only from asking the right questions. Through the powerful, provocative question, “How do you kill eleven million people?” he explores a number of other questions relevant to our lives today:
• Does it matter that millions of ordinary citizens have checked out of participating in the decisions that shape the future of our country?
• Which is more dangerous: politicians with ill intent, or the too-trusting population that allows such people to lead them?
• How are we supposed to tell the difference between the “good guys” and the “bad guys”?
• How does the answer to this question affect not only our country but our families, our faith, and our values?
• What happens to a society in which truth is absent?
Andrews issues a wake-up call: become informed, passionate citizens who demand honesty and integrity from our leaders, or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. Buy this book today for $1.99.
