Redemption, a Noah Milano novelette by Jochen Vandersteen. Great PI action!
The Goldfish Heist and Other Stories by Jay Stringer, a brilliant writer from Britain's West Midlands. His stories can be (and are) described as "social pulp," and there are thirteen of them here. (Curiously four of the stories here that serve as a prequel to Jay's novel Old Gold are also available free today in a separate Kindle book, Faithless Street -- The Old Gold Prequel. But why bother when you can get nine additional stories in The Goldfish Heist?)
Finally, What Would Lizzie Do? by Sephera Giron is a short story about a medium and (perhaps) the spirit of Lizzie Bordon.
Interesting stuff and free! free! free! Gotta love the price.
