Discover Mystery with Poisoned Pen Press

Poison Pen Press is giving away free ebooks this week. Three books by three great authors, each with multiple series that have garnered starred reviews and consistent raves.

Judy Clemens' Embrace the Grim Reaper (#1 in this new series)
   Genre: Women Sleuths

    Casey Maldonado's life is over - at least as she knows it. In one brief moment of fire and wrenching metal, everything important was gone. The car manufacturer was generous with its settlement, but it can never be enough. Her family and friend - not to mention lawyers - want her to go for more. More money. More publicity.

Her sister is missing and she want him to look for her.
