The only thing better than a good book is a good free book. If you like mysteries and thrillers, you're in for a treat: Amazon is currently offering seven Kindle e-books absolutely free of charge.

I can't say I've heard of any of the authors (unsurprising, given that mystery's not really my preferred genre), but all seven titles have average customer reviews of four stars or better. (A couple are flat-out five-star picks.)

To read them, you'll need either a Kindle e-reader or your preferred Kindle-compatible device: PC, smartphone, tablet, etc. Here's the selection:

I don't know how long Amazon will be offering these books for free, so grab them while you can. And if you've ready any of them, be sure to leave your mini-review in the comments!
