D for Daisy (The Blind Sleuth Mysteries Book 1) by Nick Aaron (Another Imprint Publishers) 4.2 Stars (89 Reviews)    Price verified 8 minutes ago

If you have morals, Nick Aaron will NOT bring your precious integrity in jeopardy, believe me. You will understand why if you read the second book in the series as well - also free. World War II. During the attacks on Berlin in the winter of 1943-44, wave after wave of British bombers swept over northern Europe and dropped their lethal loads on the German capital. A fair percentage of the bombers would fail to return from these operations, and RAF planners calculated the life expectancy of the airmen in weeks rather than months. Therefore it did not seem strange when a Lancaster named D-Daisy landed at its base in England after a bombing run, and a member of the crew was found dead. However, one person soon came to the conclusion that this man had been murdered. And the person who discovered this happened to be blind since birth. Her name was Daisy and she was the victim's wife. She was very blonde and very pretty; also very young. Therefore, no one would listen to her. So she was going to have to find the murderer on her own. "Using the carefully plotted twists and turns of the murder mystery, throwing in a highly unconventional blind sleuth with her very own take on the world, Nick Aaron lifts the genre to a more thoughtful level." - The Weekly Banner This 62k novel is a stand-alone Blind Sleuth Mystery: I D for Daisy II Daisy and Bernard III Honeymoon in Rio IV First Spring in Paris V The Nightlife of the Blind VI Cockett's Last Cock-up VII The Desiderata Stone The Blind Sleuth Mysteries Daisy Hayes was born in London in 1922.

Bigfoot And Santa Vs Al-Qaida by Raven Blackbird 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 minutes ago

When Santa's elves decide to go on strike three days before Christmas, Jolly Ole St. Nick gets hella pissed and threatens to 'bust some caps up some midget's asses' if they don't get back to work. Unfortunately Santa never gets a chance to make good on his threat because the North Pole is suddenly invaded by members of Al-Qaida. Al-Qaida, of course, is hella pissed that their messiah Osama bin Laden was shot in the fucking head by Navy Seals. So they figure they can get some retribution by kidnapping the world's most beloved Christian and beheading him on the holiest day of the year. Before they do that, though, they intend to use Santa as collateral to negotiate the release of hundreds of their brethren still holed up in Guantanamo Bay. Thankfully for Santa, President Obama doesn't intend to let Fox News label him as the man who allowed Santa to get murdered by Islamic terrorists. He quickly dispatches Santa's good pals Bigfoot, the Easter Bunny, and the crack-addicted Tooth Fairy to Afghanistan with select members of the Navy Seals to rescue 'Father Christmas' before his head ends up on a pike. Of course, things don't turn out as well as Bigfoot and the gang had planned, and they also end up getting kidnapped. It will take a Christmas miracle of truly biblical proportions in order for Santa and Bigfoot to get out of this mess. (Or they can just hope Hillary Clinton saves their asses like last time. Whatever happens first.)

Secret Song (The Richard Carter Novels Book 4) by AR Simmons (Acorn Moon Press) 4.8 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 49 minutes ago

Secret Song Secret Obsession Twenty-three years ago, two teenage drivers collided. Marie was on her way home, while Harold was fleeing from a robbery he and his cousin had just committed. When his car wouldn't restart, he and his cousin stole the girl's. Marie was never seen again. Inevitably, the boys were caught. His cousin, Wayne, was eventually executed. Harold got twenty-five years. Now Harold has come home. He has been paroled. No one wants him in Hawthorn County, but he knows of nowhere else he can go. Within days, Marie's remains are discovered. Confrontations occur. He is released from his job because of public pressure. Then Harold becomes the target of persecution, dangerous persecution as someone tries to run him off. Richard Carter is stuck with the investigation. He wishes as much as anyone that the ruined little man (for whom his wife feels compassion) would leave the county, but he does the job. His mind, however, turns to more serious crimes: a rash of burglaries (one ending in murder), home invasions (one involving sexual assault), and three disappearances. The vendetta against an ex-con who should have known better than to return to the scene of his crime takes a back seat for Richard -- until it becomes attempted murder.

"Hey," I felt a warm hand reach out towards mine. I tried to avoid it, not wanting him to get the satisfaction of seeing how my body reacted to his, but he was too quick. Warmth spread, tingles spreading like wildfire up my arm. I pulled away quickly and turned to face him. I kept my face straight, determined to make him leave me alone. "Don't do that." His voice was low and soft as he took a step closer, not caring that he was invading my personal bubble. I had to tilt my head back to look at him, his dark eyes softening the longer I looked. One of his hands slowly rose, causing me to inhale sharply. I froze, unsure what he intended to do. Was he really going to touch me? After everything? He slipped some hair behind my ear and out of my face. "Don't shut me out, Selene." His voice was pleading, something I assumed didn't happen often. I glanced away, conflicted. A part of me really wanted nothing to do with him, but an even bigger part was just afraid. I didn't want to have him and lose him like I had with Gabby. I shook my head and took a step back. "I'm sorry." **** Decades ago, the lycan Tyrant Lord began to conquer every werewolf pack he came across, laying waste to all who refused to submit and ruled over those too weak to defy him.

Hippies by Gary Gautier 4.2 Stars (22 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

By 1970, the hippie scene was faltering, a victim of both inner contradictions and external forces. The Vietnam war resistance, psychedelic drugs, sexual openness, the freedom of the commune - it seemed that everything about the 1960s could be incredibly liberating or wildly destructive. Against this backdrop, Jazmine, Ziggy, Ragman and a coterie of hippies discover an LSD-spinoff drug that triggers past life regressions and sweeps them toward a dramatic climax. This is the epic tale of hippiedom we've been waiting for, intimate in the lives of its characters but panoramic in its coverage of the sights, sounds, and ideals of the Age of Aquarius.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, Hellenism & Pessimism: 3 Unbeatable Philosophy Books in One Volume - The Birth of Tragedy by Friedrich Nietzsche (e-artnow) Price verified 4 hours ago

"Thus Spake Zarathustra: A Book for All and None" chronicles the fictitious travels and speeches of Zarathustra, the founder of Zoroastrianism. Zarathustra contains the famous dictum "God is dead" and the concept of the "Übermensch" (overman or superman). In "Beyond Good and Evil" Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach. "The Birth of Tragedy or, Hellenism and Pessimism" is a work of dramatic theory which discusses the history of the tragic form and introduces an intellectual dichotomy between the Dionysian and the Apollonian. Nietzsche believed that in classical Athenian tragedy an art form that transcended the pessimism and nihilism of a fundamentally meaningless world. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, philologist, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history. Because of Nietzsche's evocative style and provocative ideas, his philosophy generates passionate reactions. His works remain controversial, due to varying interpretations and misinterpretations of his work. In the Western philosophy tradition, Nietzsche's writings have been described as the unique case of free revolutionary thought, that is, revolutionary in its structure and problems, although not tied to any revolutionary project

Determined - The Andersen Saga (The Andersens Book 19) by Jacie Middlemann Price verified 5 hours ago

Determined is the nineteenth novella in the ongoing story of the Andersen family. Livia Andersen was a woman who held her family together with a quiet smile and an iron will. It's been months since her death and her children and grandchildren she leaves behind continue to grapple with the shifting changes in their lives now that she's gone. For some of them it is about far more than adjusting to her steady absence in their lives. It's been a while since Patrick Andersen has seen his twin sister. It's been even longer since the two of them were able to sit down and talk about anything more substantial than the weather or world events. He was on his way to his aunt's where Pamela had been living for the last year since their mother died to find out why. More importantly he wanted to do whatever he could to change it. The Andersen Saga is a story of family. It is a story about joy and loss, hope and sorrow, betrayal and regrets, unconditional forgiveness, high expectations, and unwavering loyalty. It reminds that at the heart of who we are is the family we come from, the family who stands behind and beside us and at times against us. And who we become isn't just a result of those still with us but those too that we've lost along the way. It is about the twist and turns every family deals with, the conflicts from within, and the never ending desire for acceptance and respect. Determined is the nineteenth book in the ongoing Andersen Family Saga. Other books in the Andersen Family Saga include Betrayal, Resolute, Broken, Found, Choices, Regrets, Remember, Forgiven, Truths, Always, Expectations, Decisions, Disillusioned, Believe, Relentless, Everlasting, Enduring, and Treasured.
