Some of the other genre forums have a thread like this - for posting and sharing the news e-book freebies and cheapies (bargains) - so I thought I would start one in the Mystery  / Thriller forum.   If there is already a thread for this, please let me know.

So ... if you find a great deal on a mystery e-book, please share it with the rest of us!      Plesae note if this is for the Kindle, the Nook or another e-reader.

There's a group on Facebook called Pixel of Ink that lists daily freebies for Kindle. They used to do Nook too but they don't any longer. I only have a Nook Color so even tho I still "Like" the group I can't use it really. They also have a website www.pixelofink.com

Well, it was pointed out to me that this book has been free for Kindle for some time.  blush  But, if I didn't know maybe some of you guys didn't either. The paper book version is sometimes hard to come by and can be a bit pricey. If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the Kindle for pc app for free and read it that way.
