Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Illustrated)

A illustrated Sherlock Holmes book that is nicely done.  Great for looking at on you iPad.

Includes all 104 original illustrations by Sidney Paget done for the Strand Magazine
• A brief introduction
• Biography and selected bibliography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

After Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes in the novel A Study in Scarlet in 1887, he wrote a series of twenty-four short mysteries featuring the detective and his colleague, Dr. Watson, in the pages of the Strand Magazine from 1891 to 1893.

THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES collects the first twelve of these tales—including “A Scandal in Bohemia” (which introduces Irene Adler), “The Red-Headed League,” “The Five Orange Pips,” and “The Speckled Band”—some of the greatest stories in the Sherlock Holmes canon.

As I write this, I'm sitting in a coffee shop.

It would be great if I was a barista and could make my own coffee concoctions at home.

In this book, you will learn from an ex-barista just how simple and easy it is to make your own iced and frozen espresso drinks and coffees without special equipment or expensive machines.

Worth a try as a free pick this week.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Hostage

Meet Elmore Ackerman. He idolizes Sarah Roberts from afar, and has done so for more than five years. He has studied her pictures, memorized her news clippings and now waits in the dark for the day when he can make Sarah his hostage.

A steel cage waits for Sarah, where Elmore has practiced what he will do to her. The other girls he has practiced with now lay discarded, buried about his property. He keeps their fingernails and toenails to roll between his teeth, to savor their strength, to feel the nails weaken and give in, just as his victims do.

Elmore has a plan for Sarah, and she walks right into his trap.

Sarah Roberts is his hostage and no one knows where they are.

In Sarah Roberts Book Four, The Hostage, Sarah is in a fight not just for her freedom, but also her life.

By Jonas Saul, a thriller you should get.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Forty Years Later

How about a music drama this week - for free.

Successful middle-aged publishing executive David Grossman risks everything to fulfill a promise to a woman he has not seen in forty years. When teen sweethearts and now aging Baby Boomers David and Jill reunite after four decades, sparks fly fast and furious, despite his long marriage to Allison and Jill’s reputation as a famous, former lesbian.

Jill Black, a “one hit wonder” Hollywood screenwriter, is consumed with a last chance to write and direct her own film. Success will reinvigorate her career. Failure will end it. When a pompous studio “suit” begins to undermine her authority and threatens to kill her project, the pressure forces her to spin from rage to murderous madness as she ensnares David in her plans.

By Steven Jay Griffel.
