FREE NOW FOR KINDLE (as of this post)

London 1841: a city on the edge. Corruption is everywhere. The poor are starving in the streets. The wealthy fear an explosion of anarchy and insurrection.

Amidst the turmoil, a wealthy merchant and his spoiled, beautiful ward hire former Bow Street Runner Jack Brodie to recover incriminating documents from the lawless rogues that robbed them. It is no easy task even for a man with Brodie’s criminal connections because an old and vicious enemy has returned from the penal colony of New South Wales seeking vengeance for the slaying of his brother. As Brodie hunts through the thieves dens hidden in the rookeries of Dickensian London, it is only a matter of time before their paths cross and murderous violence ensues.

The Inquiry Agent is a dark detective tale set in the early Victorian period by bestselling author William King.

Looks Interesting to me!

Thanks Rob I snatched this up.

FYI  we do have a tread dedicated to Kindle and Nook freebies, but we will take freebie notices anyway we can get them. :)

Thanks, Rob. I snagged it. It reminds me of the series by Bruce Alexander.

But it's getting good reviews and a review of the author's other work indicates he writes some fantasy.

ETA:  I wonder what happens when your Kindle is full?  Will I get a message?  "Close out Amazon's web page and step away from your keyboard."
