It’s Free Friday! Every Friday, Barnes and Noble offers a Nook Book for free. These are often a way for you to get acquainted with a ‘new to you’ author. But you have to act quick because they often are available for only a day or two before they go back to full price!
Today you can pick up ‘212’ by Alafair Burke. This is part of the author’s ‘Ellie Hatcher’ mystery series. You can see reader reviews at Goodreads, where the book rates 3.72 stars. Here is the synopsis from Barnes and Noble.
In New York City, Nights Are Dangerous. Days Are Numbered.
When New York University sophomore Megan Gunther finds personal threats posted to a Web site specializing in campus gossip, she's taken aback by their menacing tone. Someone knows her daily routine down to the minute and is watching her—but thanks to the anonymity provided by the Internet, the police tell her there's nothing they can do. Her friends are sure it's someone's idea of a joke, but when Megan is murdered in a vicious attack, NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher is convinced that the online threats are more than just empty words.
With smooth, straight-talking partner J. J. Rogan at her side, Ellie tries to identify Megan's enemies, but she begins to wonder if the coed's murder was more than just the culmination of a cyber obsession. Phone records reveal a link between Megan and a murdered real estate agent who was living a dangerous double life. The detectives also learn that the dead real estate agent shared a secret connection to a celebrity mogul whose bodyguard was mysteriously killed a few months earlier. And when Megan's roommate suddenly disappears, they know they have to find her before another young woman dies.I’m only seeing it as a freebie at Barnes and Noble this week.
