Planet iPad's Free Book Alert, Sunday, November 14: Macmillan introduces readers to Stephen Jay Schwartz' Hayden Glass novels with a short story, Crossing the Line, PLUS ... Read Blank Slate and have a chance to win a brand new Kindle from author Zack Hamric (Today's Sponsor)

Hayden Glass is on the fast track to making detective with the LAPD, but first he’s got to work his way through Vice. But as any cop can attest, you can’t leave your work at the office, and with Hayden’s cursed and troubled past, his soul is not in the best shape. His marriage is on the rocks and he’s carries a deep guilt and anger that nothing can seem to quench. Until one day he finds something that can make it all go away. 

That's the set-up for today's latest addition to our Free Book listings, a short story that sets the stage for Stephen Jay Schwartz’s Los Angeles Times bestselling debut novel, Boulevard, and its follow-up, Beat ...

But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor

What happens when the Russian mob decides to go in business with the Columbian cartels in Miami? Nothing good, as Kyle Jackle quickly finds out in this tropical thriller.  His mission to topple an organization involved in human trafficking and drug running takes him from the dangerous backstreets of Naples, Italy to the gritty underbelly of Miami.   After almost being beaten to death in an alley one evening, he awakens to find himself hunted by the mob, unable to trust anyone he meets, and with no memory of his past life.
