Grab a New Zealand thriller for free

I've often been told by Crime Watch readers and other friends and acquaintances overseas that they'd love to try more Kiwi crime and thriller fiction, but that it's hard to find where they are, in print or even online.

This is a legit gripe. While increasingly books by some local authors, such as Paul Cleave, Paul Thomas, Liam McIlvanney and Neil Cross, are available to readers in the UK and USA, many other equally fine writers are not. Vanda Symon, Paddy Richardson, and Alix Bosco have been published in Germany, but not the English-speaking northern hemisphere markets. Ben Sanders' upcoming fourth thriller is set in the USA, and will be published there next year, but his first trilogy is harder to come by.

So I'm pretty stoked to be able to share today that Wellington author Cat Connor's books SNAKEBYTE is currently available for free on Amazon Kindle, meaning wherever you are in the world, you can give a Kiwi thriller a go. If like me you don't have a Kindle, you can download a free Kindle app to read the book on your laptop or other devices.

I haven't yet read SNAKEBYTE, but I did really enjoy one of the earlier books in the series starring FBI Agent Ellie Conway. Connor writes exciting, visual tales. You can read her 9mm interview here.

Try some Kiwi crime writing and download SNAKEBYTE for free here. Happy reading!
