    Bestselling Thriller for Sale: 99 Cents

       

      http://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Righteous/Michael-Wallace/e/2940012670809My thriller, The Righteous, is a top 100 Amazon thriller and in the top 300 out of all books. I'm running a special promotion to bring the book more attention, as it's not currently well known among Nook readers. It is only $0.99 for the Nook. I hope you will consider taking a look, to see if you find it interesting.

      Medical student Jacob Christianson is sent by church elders to investigate a murder within the polygamist enclave of Blister Creek, Utah. He brings his young sister Eliza, who must choose a husband from three old men jostling for power within the church hierarchy.

      Jacob discovers that the murdered woman has been killed in accordance with secret blood oaths taken within the polygamist temple. Together with his sister, he uncovers a plot to overthrow the church leadership, with murders that reach beyond the community and into the “gentile” world. The Righteous is a heart-pounding suspense-thriller with a depth that will haunt the reader long after the last page is turned.

      "Deeply engrossing! Michael Wallace delivers the thinking man's thriller while establishing one of the freshest male leads in crime fiction--Jacob Christianson, an aspiring doctor and cult elder's favored son. Jacob's analytic nature has him questioning everything, including the nature of God and the sexist politics of polygamy. It also makes him a perfect fit to track down a killer whose grisly crimes threaten Jacob's community, family, and soon, his very life."

      -- Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of LIVE TO TELL.

          I downloaded this book last week and have just started it.  I am about a quarter of the way through and am really enjoying the book.  It is very thought provoking and gives a different look on polygamy and the questions that some of the younger generation have that are brought up in this lifestyle.  So far so good and cannot wait to finish it!

                  Ok, I just finished this book this morning and all I can say is that you have hit a home run with this book!  This has everything I love in a self published author.  This book is throught provoking, suspenseful and very very well written. 

                   

                  I noticed on Amazon that you have another book about Jacob called the Mighty and Strong.  Will you be putting this on B&N anytime soon?  I ask because if it is going to be soon, I would rather buy it for my Nook than have to read it on my Kindle app for my Smartphone so I will hold off. 

                   

                  All I know is that I loved this book and cannot wait to read more of your writing.  My mom is getting ready to read it next.  I made her buy it.  :-) 

                   

                  Thank you for posting your book on the board or I would have never found it!
