Today Amazon offers Death of a Cozy Writer (A St. Just Mystery) by G.M. Malliet just for $1.99
From deep in the heart of his eighteenth century English manor, millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk writes mystery novels and torments his four spoiled children with threats of disinheritance. Tiring of this device, the portly patriarch decides to weave a malicious twist into his well-worn plot. Gathering them all together for a family dinner, he announces his latest blow – a secret elopement with the beautiful Violet… who was once suspected of murdering her husband.
Within hours, eldest son and appointed heir Ruthven is found cleaved to death by a medieval mace. Since Ruthven is generally hated, no one seems too surprised or upset – least of all his cold-blooded wife Lillian. When Detective Chief Inspector St. Just is brought in to investigate, he meets with a deadly calm that goes beyond the usual English reserve. And soon Sir Adrian himself is found slumped over his writing desk – an ornate knife thrust into his heart. Trapped amid leering gargoyles and stone walls, every member of the family is a likely suspect. Using a little Cornish brusqueness and brawn, can St. Just find the killer before the next-in-line to the family fortune ends up dead?

Watch for Falling Objects
Are your fingers fast enough to save the world? Find out in Butter Fingers, a simple yet exhilarating game of skill and dexterity.
Your robot friend needs help! Be a pal and give him a hand: you’ll be tapping objects to stop them from falling. Butter Fingers features more than 45 levels of fast-finger action, with lots of different objects to juggle.
The concept of Butter Fingers is simple: on each level, objects will drop from the top of the screen. Your job is to tap them to juggle them back up. If you can keep them up until the timer runs out, you’ll move on to the next level!
Sounds easy, right? Well, it gets harder. Some objects have sharp edges, and you definitely want to avoid those if you know what’s good for you. But don’t worry–there are also Power Ups to help you along on your mission.
Butter Fingers is fast paced and fun–a great game to play when you’ve got just a couple of minutes to spare. Good luck! The fate of the world rests on your fingers.
