Cyber Monday Ebook Deals: Whose Body by Dorothy L SayersAmazon-Buy-Now-Button

In the debut mystery in Dorothy L. Sayers’s acclaimed Lord Peter Wimsey series, the case of a dead bather draws Lord Peter into the first of many puzzling mysteries
Lord Peter Wimsey spends his days tracking down rare books, and his nights hunting killers. Though the Great War has left his nerves frayed with shellshock, Wimsey continues to be London’s greatest sleuth—and he’s about to encounter his oddest case yet.
A strange corpse has appeared in a suburban architect’s bathroom, stark naked save for an incongruous pince-nez. When Wimsey arrives on the scene, he is confronted with a once-in-a-lifetime puzzle. The police suspect that the bathtub’s owner is the murderer, but Wimsey’s investigation quickly reveals that the case is much stranger than anyone could have predicted.
Published in 1923, during detective fiction’s golden age, Whose Body? introduced a character and a series that would make Dorothy L. Sayers famous. To this day, Lord Peter remains one of his genre’s most beloved and brilliant characters.

available for limited time only 99¢ (60% off)
From one of the world’s classic authors of romantic suspense comes the thrilling tale of a young woman caught between the desires of two very different brothers while researching a family’s secret history in an eerie Irish castle
For Cathleen Lamb, traveling to Dublin to record the history of the mystery-shrouded O’Riordan family is the answer to a prayer. Still grieving over the accident that killed her husband and baby daughter, she hopes to lose herself in other people’s lives.

But something sinister is going on at the ancient castle at the edge of the moors . . . something beyond the scandalous skeletons rattling around the O’Riordans’ closets. The former heir was killed three years earlier in a suspicious fall. The same night, the family matriarch suffered a stroke that left her mute.

Despite the malice that surrounds her, Cathleen is drawn to the brooding, darkly passionate man who is plotting to control the family. But even he may not be able to protect her when the crimes of the past reach into the present to terrorize the living.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.

Falsely accused of her father’s murder, Alice is on the run for her life
Alice is at home painting her fingernails and ruminating on her parent’s divorce when she receives an oddly desperate-sounding phone call from her father. He instructs her to drop what she’s doing, take his car, and bring two computer disks to him at their favorite ice cream shack. Alice can’t believe her father wants her to take his precious Corvette, and she’s not supposed to drive because she doesn’t have her license yet. But he never gets the chance to explain—and he doesn’t show up to meet her. While Alice is waiting in the car, she hears on the radio that her father’s been murdered. She is sick with grief, knowing her father will never join her. And then the radio announces that someone has already confessed via email: Alice herself. Now Alice’s life has become a nightmare. Even her mother believes she’s guilty. How can she clear her name while she’s on the run?
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Cyber Monday Ebook Deals: Lilith's Blood by Ocatavia E Butler
Amazon-Buy-Now-Button
available for limited time only $3.99 (79% off)
Butler’s acclaimed Xenogenesis trilogy about humanity’s struggle for survival after nuclear apocalypse, and the alien race that could save the world—or destroy it

The newest stage in human evolution begins in outer space. Survivors of a cataclysmic nuclear war awake to find themselves being studied by the Oankali, tentacle-covered galactic travelers whose benevolent appearance hides their surprising plan for the future of mankind. The Oankali arrive not just to save humanity, but to bond with it—crossbreeding to form a hybrid species that can survive in the place of its human forebears, who were so intent on self-destruction. Some people resist, forming pocket communities of purebred rebellion, but many realize they have no choice. The human species inevitably expands into something stranger, stronger, and undeniably alien.
Butler’s Lilith’s Brood is both a thrilling, provocative meditation on the expansion of the human gene pool and an epic story of how it takes more than DNA to make someone human.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

Cyber Monday Ebook Deal: Timebound by Rysa Walker
Amazon-Buy-Now-Button

available for limited time only $1.99 (80% off)
Here’s the one thing you need to know about Timebound: when I finished reading it, I didn’t even put the book down before I went right back to the first page to start the story all over again. I’m not exaggerating—it’s that good—and I was delighted to see it win the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Grand Prize. Rysa Walker achieves something that, as an editor, I crave. With each sentence, I fell further into the book’s world, while my own world—e-mail, work, friends—utterly disappeared.

The power of the opening pages sustains itself for the entire story, and it’s a story that is not easy to forget, with genetically enabled time travel, the threat of imminent death, and even a dash of romance. The settings are also a delight, as Walker effortlessly whisks the reader from the comforts of present—day Washington, DC, to the rather alien world of 1893 Chicago. But what really makes Timebound so memorable is Kate, its heroine. Like many great heroines, she’s intelligent, witty, and courageous. But she’s also flawed, and more than once I found myself crying out in frustration at the choices she makes. I was so invested in her—so thrilled by her successes, so terrified by her losses—that I became utterly bewitched.

As much as I enjoyed my back-to-back readings of Timebound, Rysa doesn’t plan on leaving her readers wondering what happens to Kate next. She’s hard at work on the sequel, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to fall into Kate’s world once again.

One final note: An earlier version of Timebound was self-published as Time’s Twisted Arrow before winning the ABNA Grand Prize. We’re delighted to have discovered it through the contest and to be presenting it to you today.
