Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure

Are you looking for explosions, high-speed chases, rappelling down the sides of buildings, and generally everything that Tom Cruise does on a daily basis?  Then we're sure you're dying to get your hands on free and discounted ebooks in the Action and Adventure genre.  You've come to the right place.  All of our Action and Adventure authors that promote their ebooks want you to get their ebooks at the lowest price possible.  Always free or discounted!

 

Definition of "Action and Adventure Genre": You may ask yourself, how does an Action and Adventure ebook differ from a Thriller ebook?  Fair question.  They may seem similar, but the main aspect of an Action and Adventure ebook is the element of consistent physical danger as a main part of the storyline.  So, while our reference to Tom Cruise and, for instance, his Mission Impossible series was slightly tongue-in-cheek, those stories would actually fall into the Action and Adventure genre.  Another important aspect of the Action and Adventure genre is that the pace of the novel using action is actually just as important as character building and setting--which makes the genre differ from others in a significant fashion.

 

Some examples of Action and Adventure bestselling ebooks are James Patterson (most of his Alex Cross novels), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Tom Clancy (most of his Jack Ryan novels), and A.G. Riddle (The Atlantis Gene).  

The Vanished Series: Books 1-3

by B. B. Griffith


Three strangers whose lives are mysteriously entwined with the supernatural must face malicious forces that threaten a Navajo Reservation — and walk the line between the living and the dead. An epic fantasy box set that blends Navajo mythology with Southwestern mystery!

Follow the Crow (Book 1)

Ben Dejooli is a Navajo cop who can't escape his past. Six years ago his little sister Ana vanished without a trace. His best friend saw what happened but he refuses to speak of what he knows, and so was banished from the Navajo tribe. That was the day the crows started following Ben. What the crows know will change his life, and the lives of those he loves, forever.

Beyond the Veil (Book 2)

The bell that holds power over life and death has been lost. The race to find it has begun, and our world hangs in the balance.

Caroline and Owen search for the bell across the land of the living. Ben Dejooli, now known as the Walker, searches the land of the dead. Their mission is to protect the bell and keep it secret. Others seek the bell as well, but they have different plans... plans that could disrupt the careful balance between life and death that has stood since the beginning of time.

When a young boy finds the bell out in the plains of Texas, he quickly becomes the target of a showdown between the lands of the living and the dead, and those that want to rule over both.

The Coyote Way (Book 3)

The Walker chases a rogue spirit, something dark and chaotic that broke through into the land of the living and took on the form of a coyote.

Caroline and Owen have been on the move for years trying to find a place to call home. Caroline remains torn--her heart split in two. Half of her loves Owen, the other half still loves Ben. Grant travels with them, but he struggles with the weight of his position as Keeper and wants to carve his own path. Everywhere they go they find a strange malice and unease waiting for them. The coyote's handiwork.

They don't know it yet, but all of them are travelling in the same direction. Back to Chaco Navajo Reservation . . . which is exactly what the coyote wants.

by Derek Blass


The streets aren't safe when your enemy wears a blue uniform and a gold badge.

What if the good guys weren't good?

What if a cop went rogue and killed an innocent man?

What if it was all caught on video and the cop would do anything to cover it up?

"Much like the script of an action-packed movie, Enemy in Blue will buffet you from one hair-raising scene to another -- and will always leave you pondering, who's the real enemy?" -L.Capritta

For anyone that craves an action-packed thriller and can't get their fill of Grisham, Koontz or Patterson...Enemy in Blue is your next escape!

"For action, body-count and digging into the underworld of police politics--this is really a great read.  However, the best asset of the novel is the incredible drawing of the antagonist--the evil Sergeant Shaver really shines."  -P.Weekly

Cold Steele: A Hard-Boiled Police Procedural (The Jasmine Steele Mystery Series Book 4)

by Kimberly Amato

 

A SERIAL KILLER IS SAYING IT WITH FLOWERS...

In the fourth installment of Kimberly Amato’s chilling hard-boiled mystery series, badass detective Jasmine Steele is back -- and shockingly, to herself most of all -- she’s as happy as she’s ever been.

She and her brilliant psychologist partner Frankie are planning a wedding that’s been years in the making, and she’s settled into a new chapter of life with her nephew-turned-adopted son, Chase. But the good life turns out to be more fleeting than the detective’s caffeine withdrawals.

Jasmine, or Jazz, to her friends, gets a rude awakening when a 3-year-old cold case comes back hot. New York City’s “Carnation Killer,” a serial rapist and murderer, leaves his fifth calling card on a woman named Emilia Smith. The calling card? A heart-shaped carving into the woman’s chest and a single white carnation.

On the creep spectrum, Jazz puts this killer somewhere between Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer. And her veteran right hand man is on medical leave.

She’s joined instead by temporary partner Detective Sydney Locke, a welcome new character. Sydney’s pretty green but has a fiery determination and talent for the beat that Jazz recognizes within minutes. Soon enough, they’ve got a mentor/protégé thing going – which certainly comes in handy at their often patriarchal workplace.

And it turns out Jazz and Syd will need that and more when the military gets involved with the investigation-- because the victim is none other than the daughter of a high-ranking official, and the brass knows more than they’re saying.

What the team do know is that Emilia’s last night alive was spent at a college bar that sparks Jasmine’ least happy memory –the very same establishment that served as a backdrop to her own early adult years, a past defiled and traumatized by a dangerous man.Just as Jazz is finally ready to be happy, her bone-chilling trauma comes rushing back. And the Carnation Killer is still out there.

“If you like psychological detective stories with a touch of humour and romance, you will love Sam Smith.”

An audio book of Sam's Song, narrated by Suzan Lynn Lorraine, is now available from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

Love Hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that’s where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realising that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end.

Love Hurts. For me, Samantha Smith, Enquiry Agent, love arrived at the end of a fist. First, I had to contend with an alcoholic mother, who took her frustrations out on me throughout my childhood, then my husband, Dan, who regarded domestic violence as an integral part of marriage. But I survived. I obtained a divorce, kept my sense of humour and retained an air of optimism. I established my business and gained the respect of my peers. However, I was not prepared for Dan when he re-entered my life, or for the affection showered on me by Dr Alan Storey, a compassionate and rather handsome psychologist.

Sam’s Song. This is the story of a week that changed my life forever.

Disguising Demons (Dusty Kent Mysteries Book 4)

by Brigid George

 

From an Amazon bestselling author comes a classic whodunit with twists and turns and secrets that must be revealed...

The dead body of a Buddhist monk is found at the bottom of a cliff early one morning in a small town in Australia’s Far North Queensland. Four months later with the killer still at large, Dusty Kent, investigative journalist renowned for her ability to solve cold cases, is called in.

Dusty’s heart goes out to the humble monk who lived quietly in a forest community, nurturing the garden and volunteering to read books to elderly residents of a retirement village. Why would anyone want to kill such a gentle soul? Is the killer a fellow monk with psychopathic traits? Had small town prejudice against the forest community manifested into violent hatred?

Dusty’s determination to unmask the murderer is spurred on by her sympathy for the dead monk, her determination to bring him justice and her fury at the cold-hearted killer. One by one, secrets are uprooted and motives unearthed. What Dusty discovers in her quest to find the truth shocks and saddens her and has her Irish assistant questioning whether they should continue with the case.

This 4th book in the Dusty Kent murder mysteries following Murder in Murloo, A Devious Mind and Rippling Red is certain to captivate you.

Brigid George is the pen name of JB Rowley, author of Amazon best sellers Whisper My Secret and Mother of Ten.

**It is not necessary to read the Dusty Kent books in sequence. Each one is a different stand-alone story with new characters except for the two main characters who feature in all the stories. In other words, the books constitute a series of stories NOT a serial.

The Western Star: A Longmire Mystery (Walt Longmire Mysteries Book 13)

by Craig Johnson


The thirteenth novel in Craig Johnson's beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the basis for the hit Netflix series Longmire

Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a celebratory beer after a weapons certification at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy when a younger sheriff confronts him with a photograph of twenty-five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It takes him back to when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Walt accompanied his mentor Lucian to the annual Wyoming Sheriff's Association junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star, which ran the length of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Evanston and back. Armed with his trusty Colt .45 and a paperback of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, the young Walt was ill-prepared for the machinations of twenty-four veteran sheriffs, let alone the cavalcade of curious characters that accompanied them.
 
The photograph—along with an upcoming parole hearing for one of the most dangerous men Walt has encountered in a lifetime of law enforcement—hurtles the sheriff into a head-on collision of past and present, placing him and everyone he cares about squarely on the tracks of runaway revenge.
