Running Blind

Arnie Levitt made a fortune building ugly strip malls. After he retired to Florida, Levitt wanted to create something of beauty instead and the unfinished "Glass House" was the answer. He wanted to finish it but not long after moving in he's found dead, murdered. As Sarasota Homicide Lieutenant James "Mack" Mackay begins his investigation, he finds no clues at the crime scene and no motive for the killing. Soon after, following that slimmest of leads, Mackay finds himself not only tracking a murderer but also searching for a mysterious item that dates back eighty years to the heyday of John Ringling, creator of the greatest show on earth.

The Brora Murders (The Scottish Mysteries)

1869, Sutherland, Scotland, and the Kildonan Gold Rush is in full swing. 
And then one of the panners is murdered, and strange scratchings left on stones where he is found. 
Brogar Finn and Sholto McKay are on hand to investigate the extent of the Gold Rush, and it falls to them to solve this murder, and the others that soon follow. 

The language is rich with the places and times Gray leads her readers into, from the volcanic eruption in Iceland that covers the land with ash, to the icy wastes of Finnmark, where Scandinavia and Russia meet. And from this snowy frontier, a stranger comes, intent on tracking down the lost loose-ends of his past, all of which end up in Kildonan, and the woman who is single-handedly trying to breathe life back into the valley after the decimation of the Clearances half a century before. 

And there are also the Brora Bowls, a valuable historical find discovered when Solveig McCleery blows up the mines down in Brora, which act sets in motion the sequence of events that brings all these disparate people together, with terrible consequences.

The Brora Murders is a sumptuous and satisfying mystery that explores the rich history and heritage of the Highlands, and in particular of Sutherland, Helmsdale, Brora and Kildonan.

The detective immediately discovers Kronberg's secret - a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine - a criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. But both must join forces to stop a crime so monstrous, it outshines Jack the Ripper's deeds in brutality and cold-bloodedness.

Rod Mantooth stole both her innocence and her father's legacy, a secret that could have rebuilt her life.

Anita was lost until she encountered another hard man who knew the way of the world - the urban paladin and professional troubleshooter named Hannibal Jones. Like a rolling mass of icy fury, Hannibal followed the trail of corrupted human debris that would lead to Rod Mantooth and a final showdown in the icy waters of the Atlantic.

Troubles follow hard and fast, as Simone and Kevin embark on a hilarious adventure from Miami to Key West, while trying to rekindle their passion for each other and survive a family reunion marked by murder and mayhem.

The Big Bend

The day begins like any other: Terry Rankin, sole proprietor of Rankin Personal Security Services in Orlando, Florida, accepts a private meeting with a potential client. Sheila Adamson is looking for a bodyguard to protect her from her abusive husband, but Rankin refuses to take the job until she begins divorce proceedings. Moments later, Mrs. Adamson is dead and Rankin is buried beneath the rubble of his house, knocked flat by a car bomb planted in the dead woman's Jaguar. When he's questioned by the local police, Rankin learns that Adamson's attorney has also turned up dead, his Cadillac riddled with bullets. Suspecting there is more to these murders than a domestic dispute, he teams up with Orlando cop Cathy Diamond for a thrilling-and treacherous-adventure that will lead them deep into the heart of the Everglades and hot on the trail of a dangerous criminal. In Rankin's sardonic bodyguard-turned-investigator, Gary Showalter has created a new hero for fans of hardboiled mysteries.

Out of the Limelight

When a flower girl is killed in a brutal attack on the streets of Victorian London, two innocent comedians stand accused of her murder. Vilified by their audience, and hounded by a police sergeant seeking promotion, they leave the bright lights of music hall in an attempt to clear their names. Out of their depth in a murky world of deceit and lies, they encounter conspirators and aristocrats, lovers and killers, never realising their own lives are at risk as they draw closer to a macabre discovery in the depths of the city.

*** Set in the rumbustious Music Hall of the late 19th century, 'Out of the Limelight' is a tale of conspiracy, murder and love. This is a gripping read - a Victorian novel with a contemporary flavour, full of colourful characters, warmth, wit and humour. ***

Tibor reaches back to his roots from his childhood and learns how keeping an open heart and open mind can humanize an initially alien world.

Good morning,
thanks for keeping the thread going
sorry I'm posting so seldom, but I'm not picking up many free books these days

I found that Denise Domning has a "box set" of her season series--Medieval Romance.
The Seasons Series; Five Books for the Price of Three
this includes the books:
Winter's Heat
Summer's Storm
Spring's Fury
Autumn's Flame
A Love For All Seasons

All the books are also free individually, but I prefer boxed sets when available for easier access. And yes, there is an active table of content so it's easy to get to the start of each book.

Port Royal

Polevoi's debut period piece uncoils intersecting narratives about 17th-century political intrigue, naval warfare and love in the West Indies. Sir Henry Morgan, a legendary privateer, is elevated to the position of Royal Governor of Jamaica. Apoplectic with resentment over the indignities heaped upon him by his King, Morgan conspires to consolidate control over the lucrative but illicit privateering trade by assembling a military force that answers only to him. He sends Captain Michael Scot to Darien country, a remote jungle territory in Panama ruled by Indians but recently overtaken by Spaniards because of its reported abundance of gold. Morgan's hope is that the glory and financial windfall of the expedition will aggrandize his political clout. Meanwhile, he enlists the help of Jamaica's Chief Justice Roger Dawkins to parry with his political adversary, the formidable Sir John Black. Dawkins quickly becomes embroiled in a shadowy world of misdirection, subterfuge and murder. To further muddy already turbid waters, Dawkins is courted by wealthy sugar plantation heiress Lily Barton, whose interest in him is both romantically and politically motivated. Dawkins, however, ends up sexually entangled with Barton's most trusted slave.

The House of the Wicked (a psychological thriller combining mystery, murder, crime and suspense)

1880: Stephen Denning is an artist arriving in Porthgarrow. It is an isolated Cornish fishing community, largely untouched by the modern, developing Victorian world, hanging onto its old traditions, superstitions and beliefs - a community that lives with a disturbing secret. So too does Denning.

He is a reluctant visitor, and though he is supposedly joining his one-time artist friend Terrance Wilkinson to form an artists' colony it is circumstances that force him there. Denning is still haunted by the brutal death of a young woman in Brittany, and shouldering guilt for the fact that he covered up for Wilkinson when he suspects the man of having been been involved with the murder.

But Porthgarrow is haunted by its own demons and secrets. He learns about the savage murder of a woman by her husband Jowan Connoch thirteen years previously, and of Jowan's son who has returned to Porthgarrow to uncover the truth and to clear his father's name.

Yet it is far from over. Before long three more people are destined to die in Porthgarrow before the village gives up its sinister secrets, and Stephen Denning will learn of his own family's mysterious involvement.

The Vatican Betrayal

After a brutal murder in the Doge's Palace in Venice, Asian art buyer San Lee must decipher Doctor Chan's cryptic last words to uncover a secret that has haunted the Church for over 500 years.

San Lee is hired by China's Ministry of State Security to buy a politically sensitive sculpture at an auction in Venice, a job San desperately needs to complete to repay his father's debts. But when the sculpture's owner Doctor Chan is murdered, and the sculpture stolen, San is blamed and pursued by the Ministry's agents. Worse still, San becomes the target of a conspiracy that for centuries has sought to destroy all record of the secret that Doctor Chan has discovered, and that if exposed, could rewrite history and shake the Church to its foundations. 

Chased through Venice, Rome and Florence, San and Doctor Chan's assistant Su-Lin must decipher Doctor Chan's cryptic last words and recover the sculpture before the Ministry's agents or the Inquisition captures them first.

Melvin Belli: King of the Courtroom
Famed attorney Melvin Belli was flamboyant, eccentric, and narcissistic. He was called a liar, a charlaton, a womanizer, and an ambulance chaser. It was suggested more than once that he should be disbarred. But those who knew Belli also described him as a genius and a revolutionary thinker, a lawyer who changed the legal landscape like none before.

A legal pioneer who fought powerful corporations and consorted with strippers, madams, and Mafioso, Belli was the first to win multi-million dollar lawsuits. He famously - and unsuccessfully - represented Jack Ruby, the who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. Dubbed the "King of Torts" by Life Magazine, his unorthodox strategies and courtroom theatrics made him one of the most controversial lawyers in America history.

Augie and Miss Lillian, a haunting couple from the past, lead Sirena through the labyrinth of her journey into her soul. As time wraps around itself and the storm of 1900 Galveston comes to life, Sirena peeks through the veils of time and paints an eerie portrait of life within the shadows of the final storm.

Engineered Murder

When Sharon came to clean the offices of a small mid-west engineering firm, she didn't expect to find a dead body in its library. Detective Bernard Knowlton's job is to pull the curtains in the book-shrouded room where a beautiful engineer lies murdered, poke under the bloody Oriental rug whereupon she lies, and sweep out evidence.

The two partners of the firm both have lives that might not bear too much scrutiny, and it appears to Knowlton that they are desperate that he not open too many closets. The disingenuous husband of the victim has the best of motives, perhaps, but his grief at her death appears genuine. The wife of the senior partner has a strong motive for the killing but has an unbreakable alibi. Other employees of the firm, past and present, have reasons to dislike the victim. Of particular interest are the secrets of her past that possibly have returned as her Nemesis.
