Daily Deals: Two Richard Castle Mystery Novels, Zombie-Kids and Moto Mania HD – Dirt Bike Challenge
Today Amazon offers Related to the hit television comedy-drama, Castle, these entertaining mystery novels are just $1.99 each (92% off). The show’s fictional author, Richard Castle, is the credited writer for both books, which follow New York City detective Nikki Heat in her stormy professional relationship with superstar journalist Jameson Rook.
The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat’s most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York’s most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest level of the NYPD.
But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge, and out on her own as a target for killers, with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who’s not a cop: reporter Jameson Rook.
In the midst of New York’s coldest winter in a hundred years, there’s one thing Nikki is determined to prove: Heat Rises. This ebook includes an alternate cover created by one of Richard Castle’s biggest fans!
When New York’s most vicious gossip columnist, Cassidy Towne, is found dead, Heat uncovers a gallery of high profile suspects, all with compelling motives for killing the most feared muckraker in Manhattan.
Heat’s murder investigation is complicated by her surprise reunion with superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook. In the wake of their recent breakup, Nikki would rather not deal with their raw emotional baggage. But the handsome, wise-cracking Pulitzer Prize-winning writer’s personal involvement in the case forces her to team up with Rook anyway. The residue of their unresolved romantic conflict and crackling sexual tension fills the air as Heat and Rook embark on a search for a killer among celebrities and mobsters, singers and hookers, pro athletes and shamed politicians.
This new, explosive case brings on the heat in the glittery world of secrets, cover-ups, and scandals.

Also you can buy Zombie-Kids (KiteReaders Monster Series) by Julia Dweck just for $1.99.
Zombie-Kids is a ghoulishly fun rhyming adventure. Did you know that zombies are people that have feelings, too? They like to be loved just like me and like you. Join the zombie-kids as they bowl, dance, skate, and go to the movies in their unique zombie-way. You’ll have an eerily good time.
Here one of readers review on this book: “The Zombie-Kids are a riot. They are hilarious and fun! My son is not big on reading, but the title caught his attention and mine. He read it all the way through and then wanted to know if there was a sequel. I sure hope so, because it’s the most excited I’ve seen my kid get about any book in a long time. If not, he may just write the sequel himself. He’s been doodling scenes from the story on post-its all over the house. His favorite part is when the zombies go bowling. I won’t spoil it for you, but the zombies do everything in their own special way. So, if a book can get my son this interested in reading and writing, I think it deserves 5 stars!” – Read2you

Moto Mania HD – Dirt Bike Challenge is a game for your Kindle Fire or any other Android device, which is free to install today only.
Race your way through dozens of levels in this physics based ragdoll dirt bike game. Tilt your device and use the accelerometer to lean your rider to perform back flips, front flips and to stick that perfect landing.
Choose your bike color and custom wheels. Race in a city, country, and Egypt location. In the country you will have to tackle huge ramps, loops, massive jumps, bridges, treacherous cliffs and much more. Use hidden mine shaft entrances for shortcuts or alternate routes.
The country levels are a relaxing stroll in the park compared to the Egypt levels. In Egypt you will have an ancient shield pursuing you through all the levels over ancient columns and pyramids. If the shield hits you, you’ll be violently ripped off your motorcycle and have to restart the level. You will have to decide if you want to outrun the shield or find a hiding spot and let it pass, but remember the clocks ticking.
In the city levels you will have to jump over cars and take on huge ramps and jumps, run over stray dogs and tons more. Watch out for the hazards. Avoid the construction zones or you will disappear in the giant hole. Slow down when you see a slow sign or the cops will run you down (literally).
Be careful or you will wipeout and your rider will fly through the air like a ragdoll, complete with screaming and bones crunching.
