Title: Origami Rose
Genre: Science fiction detective

There are only so many new ideas around at any given time, and the science fiction plot device has been used elsewhere in other ways, but that didn't stop the book from being a page turner.

I read this a while ago, and haven't time for a proper review, but: Origami Rose costs 99 cents here and you can download a pdf sample first. Children are being kidnapped, and apparently killed, and the story opens with an investigator looking at a case file.

The text is pretty clean, though one or two grammatical or punctuation errors hit me in the face. I noticed few typos, the one that stuck in my mind is "Seventh Calvary", maybe because it occurred more than once.

When I read the book the first half was free to download, and the whole book cost $3. I had no hesitation in buying it when I had finished reading the first part. I suggest you look at this one, if you like either science fiction or detective stories.

Thanks for the review, and a link to an ebook site I hadn't seen before. :)
