    Thanks for the heads up on this, Sam. One more perk for being a Prime member. I picked up Silent Echo, too.

    Apparently I missed December and January, but February's is up, at the link above. I went with Long Knives but was tempted by Rented Mule.

    This is what we missed in December:

    Looks like there was over 100 free in January and we missed em, but no big deals that I saw, these were the ones listed under Kindle First....
    [*]The Barkeep $1.99
    [*]The Line (Witching Savannah, Book One) $1.99
    [*]Mint Juleps and Justice (An Adams Grove Novel) $1.99
    [*]Descending Son $1.99
    [/list]

    4 new ones up for March. I went with the mystery one (seventh child) but the horror one (The bird eater) was tempting! Link in OP!

    ^^ That was my choice, too. Funny thing is I haven't had a lot of time to read any books lately, though, but my mother has been reading anything and everything I can find with her Kindle. And this is a person who refuses to even touch a computer, but she's loved her Kindle ever since we bought it as a gift several years ago.

    I haven't been grabbing these because I'm so behind on my reading and don't know when or if I'll ever get to these.

    The best book ever put in Kindle First is probably this months addition of a Kay Scarpetta story by Patricia Cornwall. My mom has every one of her books

    I wish I had seen this earlier. I pick up the Kindle First books more for my Mom, as she reads more than I do and her Kindle is on my account. I picked up "Drowning With Others" for her, and "The Man Who Played With Fire" for both of us (we both enjoyed Stieg Larrson's Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy). I usually base my decision on which book to pick up for her on genre and Amazon reviews.

    Sam, did you ever end up reading this? I found it terrific and have gobbled up all the sequel books and enjoyed them even more.

    The Kindle first perk is one of my favorites as a Prime member.
