Back on Murder - free NOOKBook

This one's getting pretty good reviews at Amazon, and the reviews indicate that you can't really tell it's from a Christian publisher.

 

Back on Murder (Roland March Series #1) [Bethany House/Baker]

 

Description:

 

A missing girl.
A corrupt investigation.
They thought they could get away with it, but they forgot one thing:

Roland March is BACK ON MURDER

Houston homicide detective Roland March was once one of the best. Now he's disillusioned, cynical, and on his way out. His superiors farm him out on a variety of punishment details...until an unexpected break gives March one last chance to save his career. And his humanity.

All he has to do? Find the missing teenage daughter of a Houston evangelist that every cop in town is already looking for. But March has an inside track, a multiple murder nobody else thinks is connected. Battling a new partner, an old nemesis, and the demons of his past, getting to the truth could cost March everything. Even his life.

Calm, cool, and premenopausal, single mom and chef Jill Morgan Storm has set out on a scheme to find and wed a traveling salesman. In return, she hopes for one week of marital bliss, three weeks off while her new husband is out of town, and a nice monthly paycheck. Enter Davin Wesley, the opposite of the type of man Jill is searching for—an elementary school teacher who refuses to skedaddle out like a good little husband. Jill isn't sure if she can keep up the protests because his kiss is pure fire and he won't be discouraged. Suffering from hot flash after hot flash, she's unsure if she can say no as her hormones scream yes.

Bill Veeck's Crosstown Classic  

 

  • ISBN-13: 9780226049540
  • Publisher: University of Chicago Press
  • Publication date: 12/20/2012
  • Series: Chicago Shorts
  • Pages: 32
  • File size: 2 MB

 

Baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck (1914–86) was an inspired team builder, a consummate showman, and one of the greatest baseball men ever involved in the game. Bill Veeck’s Crosstown Classic, drawn from his uproarious autobiography (cowritten with the talented sportswriter Ed Linn), is an unforgettable trip packed with anecdotes and insight about the history of baseball and tales of players and owners—some of the most entertaining stories in all of sports literature. Veeck’s own love for the game began when his father was manager and then President of the Chicago Cubs; upon his father’s death in 1930, Veeck was hired as an office boy for eighteen dollars a week. Here, Veeck recollects those halcyon days and how they underscored his development as a wily franchise owner, leading up to quite a rumpus, many years later, during his purchase of the White Sox from the “Battling Comiskeys.”

The Twelfth Imam - free NOOK Book

Reviews on Amazon are divided on this one. Most reviewers rate it very highly, but others were turned off by its strong Biblical and anti-Islamic orientation, and by its ending with a cliff-hanger.

 

The Twelfth Imam [Tyndale House]

 

Description:

 

As the apocalyptic leaders of Iran call for the annihilation of Israel and the U.S., CIA operative David Shirazi is sent into Tehran with one objective: use all means necessary to disrupt Iran’s nuclear weapons program, without leaving American fingerprints and without triggering a regional war. At extreme personal risk, Shirazi executes his plan.


A native Farsi speaker whose family escaped from Iran in 1979, he couldn’t be better prepared for the mission. But none of his training has prepared Shirazi for what will happen next. An obscure religious cleric is suddenly hailed throughout the region as the Islamic messiah known as the Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. News of his miracles, healings, signs, and wonders spreads like wildfire, as do rumors of a new and horrific war.


With the prophecy of the Twelfth Imam seemingly fulfilled, Iran’s military prepares to strike Israel and bring about the End of Days. Shirazi must take action to save his country and the world, but the clock is ticking.
