    I was browsing the free ebooks on Amazon when I stumbled across another gem. Yes that's ANOTHER gem. It feels like every month now I find some new little rare beuty to read on Amazon. Where as I can't remember the last time I've walked into a bookstore and really been wowed by a book.

    This one is about four homeless people who find a suicide note and promise to help the man who wrote it. It's sort of like a travellers tale where they meet strange and interesting characters at each step of their journey. It's an interesting plot for sure but it was definitely the incredible cover which drew me in. That's another thing, why do book covers from traditional publishers suck so much nowadays?

    In any case if you didn't guess I highly recommend it. If you know of any other great original ebooks out there I'd love to hear about them too. In fact I dare someone to name an exciting or interesting new concept for a book that was printed on paper.

    ?When four homeless people find a suicide note they vow to save the man who wrote it before he can carry it out. With only until New Year's Eve to track him down they follow clues in the note which lead them on a journey across the city.

    Having long hidden in the darkness of the gutter, the four must finally return to the world they left behind and inevitably face the demons of their past they've long been running from.

    They find a city corrupted, over run with turf wars and violence. The people tremble as a serial killer stalks the midnight air. The police appear to have given up hope in catching him. This killer is seemingly unstoppable. Unstoppable, until his path crosses with that of four hapless bums. The last thread of hope lies in each of their hands as their journey to save one man’s life causes them to save many.

    It's ranked 67 in adventure now. I hope it does well. Indy publishing needs something better than 50 Shades.
