Free mysteries for your Kindle (Nov 6)

The eBook explosion continues -- and with Amazon's recent unveiling of four brand-new Kindles in time for Christmas, it's only going to, well, explode more. (My own Earl Walker mystery trilogy -- including the never-before-published finale Knocking 'Em Dead -- will find new life in eBook form come 2012, thanks to imprint Spyglass Lane Mysteries.)

All of which is to say, there are a bunch of mysteries, thrillers, suspense, romantic suspense and detective fiction titles you can download for cheap. Or free. (Don't have a Kindle? Amazon also has free apps for your computer, Android, Blackberry, or Apple device.)
