On a cold winter morning, the safe at Stone Mountain Resort is robbed, and Kalin Thompson's brother, Roy, suspiciously disappears. As Director of Security, Kalin would normally lead the investigation, but when her brother becomes the prime suspect, she is ordered to stay clear.

The police and the president of the resort turn their sights on Kalin, who risks everything to covertly attempt to clear Roy's name. As threats against her escalate, she moves closer to uncovering the guilty party. Is Kalin's faith in her brother justified? Or will the truth destroy her?

When Kalin Thompson is promoted to Director of Security at Stone Mountain Resort, she soon becomes entangled in the high-profile murder investigation of an up-and-coming Olympic-caliber skier.

MystereBooks: This Week's Update of Kindle Crime Fiction Priced $2.99 or Less (120811)

MystereBooks: Mystery, Suspense, and Thriller eBooks

Every month Amazon publishes a list of 100 Kindle books priced $3.99 or less. We thought we'd take that idea and improve on it, publishing a list of 100 Kindle mystery books priced $2.99 or less and updating it every week!

Here is our general criteria for selecting titles to include: books from major or specialty publishers of crime fiction and those written by authors familiar to us. There are far more than 100 to choose from, so we use our best judgment to narrow it down.

And just a reminder … as we add new titles, older ones are removed from the list. These books aren't likely to be repeated, so we encourage you to check in frequently!

A couple-three quick notes before we get to today's update.

• Don't miss the August selection of $3.99 or less Kindle books. We've tried to avoid any duplication on our list, but one or two titles may have slipped by.

• Nearly all our new titles this week came from two publishers: Midnight Ink and Oceanview Publishing. Both are generous in providing an interesting selection of discounted titles, but both also tend to not keep them discounted for very long … or mix-up the selection. If any interest you, we suggest snapping them up sooner than later.

• It's always worth checking out Poisoned Pen Press. Over the past few months they have been discounting first in series titles — and usually the second and third in series as well — which is a terrific and inexpensive way of getting an introduction to a character.

Below are listed the new $2.99 or less titles we added today; click on the cover or title for more information or to purchase the Kindle edition.

Important Note: Prices can and do change without prior notice! We strongly urge you to confirm the price of the book before completing your purchase. The price displayed on the vendor website at the time of purchase is the price of the book.
