3. Thriller: Welcome to Belgrade by P.A. Duncan
When: Today only
In the year 2000, two countries have different experiences with their elections, and U.N. spy Mai Fisher is out to affect the outcome of one of them. But first she has to find out who has been killing major and minor government officials in Yugoslavia and stop them.
As if that weren't enough, she has to convince a reluctant candidate to run against the Serbian strongman, Slobodan Milošević.
After coming out of semi-retirement with reluctance, Alexei Bukharin joins his partner in what he hopes is their final mission. There are moments, though, where he remembers the most exciting aspects of the spy game: untangling plots, the occasional need to kick ass, the manipulation of an innocent, and the adrenaline rush.
However, there are those who will do anything to maintain the status quo, to stay in power. Even kill.
4. Thriller: Dangerous Truths by P.A. Duncan
When: Today only
Whiskey doesn’t really drown sorrow, but it pushes it aside.
Mai Fisher won’t accept she’s lost her partner until she sees the body, and the whiskey prepares her for that until she receives a phone call bringing good news from an unlikely source.
Alexei Bukharin has perhaps stretched his luck one time too many, but he has a mission… No, he and Mai have a mission to finish, and the latest complication brings forth both an old adversary and also someone far too close for comfort.
Mai’s diplomatic skills have never been her strong point, but she manages to rise to the occasion when dealing with a candidate who, despite his calls for peace, could end up being the next Slobodan Milošević.
A hired assassin develops a conscience but isn’t sure whom he can turn to for help. Well, he knows exactly who would help him without question, but being beholden to Mai Fisher is not something he wants to deal with for, oh, the rest of his life.
Devious plots, political assassinations, blood vengeance, and hidden agendas, all dangerous truths.
Merely another day in the Balkans.

When: Lightning Deal on Amazon
The Sandman is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming—a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who's ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus' realm—be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons.
Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that's drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his old heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself—to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But he'll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who—like him—are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects of existence.
This massive hardcover tome, over 1000 pages, collects the first 37 issues of Neil Gaiman's groundbreaking series!
