#EscapeWithABook Week 3: The Case of the Runaway Client

Hi there, It's Week 3 of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week. Each book will be 99p/99c (UK/US only, because of how Amazon run their discount system). In addition, almost all my books are in Kindle Unlimited, so if you are a subscriber, you can work through the lot (if …
