We're going out on a high note with our final selection of 2012: Phillip Margolin’s Executive Privilege. Suppose a serial killer on death row cops to all his murders, except one. He says he was framed for a high-profile murder in a governor’s home, and he wants the real killer brought to justice.


Fast forward, and that governor is now the POTUS, and two people—a private detective and a young lawyer—have reason to believe that the serial killer was telling the truth. When death befalls another of the President’s associates, it’s clear that the unthinkable may be true. Is there a murderer in the Oval Office?


After you've finished Executive Privilege, continue the pulse-pounding DC adventures with Margolin’s latest: Capital Murder.



Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Phillip recommends:

Thank you for pointing us toward free books. I also try to buy occasionally so that I don't look like a mooch...lol

I think Gap Creek was my favorite, as far as I can think off the top of my head.  Gripping story full of devestating hard work, disappointments, and yet more hard work.  I guess I consider it somewhat of a Little House on the Prairie, for adults. 


It's ironic - I didn't even get the book for free!  I borrowed it from my brother-in-law.

Thank you so much for this wonderfully exciting read and for all who contribute here. My favorite book was one of the Trash and Treasure mysteries by Barbara Allen. I went on to read the entire series!

Thank you Free Fridays and to all who post links to other freebies!  I've read some really great books and found some wonderful new authors!

Having received my Nook Tablet last year for Christmas, I am celebrating its anninversary by downloading what sounds like another great freebie!!! There have been so many wonderful books throughout the past year that it's difficult to pick just one favorite. Mike Lawson's "The Inside Ring" and "Cold Granite" by Stuart MacBride were both awesome thrillers! It was nice to be able to begin both series for free. I also really enjoyed "The Last Romanov" by Dora Levy Mossanen and "The Stolen Crown" by Susan Higginbotham.


Thanks for these and all the others, and I am looking forward to seeing what selections 2013 brings!

For those who received Nooks for their kids, this fantasy series does not contain profanity nor sexual content. I found it a great read for adults, as well as youth age readers.


Delver Magic by Jeff Inlo

Book 1


Book 2


Book 3


Books 4 and 5 are 99 cents
