Wow Rick, that one sounds good.
Me, too -- for some reason (senility is my first guess) I'd thought it was free…
Recent email had this link, for thriller freebies:
It ends pretty soon (end of the month)
I suspect that I will cave in and buy the e-book of
An Eagle Named Freedom: My True Story of a Remarkable Friendship, by Jeff Guidry.
Currently $1.99 at Kobo and Google Play books. Might just be me, but I expect it to be a real tear-jerker.
Not sure how long this will be in effect, only just got notice yesterday (and read the email today). Thrillers:

BARNES & NOBLE NOOK
William Gibson has trained his eye on the future for decades, ever since coining the term “cyberspace” and then popularizing it in his classic speculative novel Neuromancer in the early 1980s. Cory Doctorow raved that The Peripheral is “spectacular, a piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer.” Now Gibson is back with Agency—a science fiction thriller heavily influenced by our most current events.
Verity Jane, gifted app whisperer, takes a job as the beta tester for a new product: a digital assistant, accessed through a pair of ordinary-looking glasses. “Eunice,” the disarmingly human AI in the glasses, manifests a face, a fragmentary past, and a canny grasp of combat strategy. Realizing that her cryptic new employers don’t yet know how powerful and valuable Eunice is, Verity instinctively decides that it’s best they don’t.
Meanwhile, a century ahead in London, in a different time line entirely, Wilf Netherton works amid plutocrats and plunderers, survivors of the slow and steady apocalypse known as the jackpot. His boss, the enigmatic Ainsley Lowbeer, can look into alternate pasts and nudge their ultimate directions. Verity and Eunice are her current project. Wilf can see what Verity and Eunice can’t: their own version of the jackpot, just around the corner, and the roles they both may play in it.
