The Delta Chain debuts on AmazonUK Top 100 Kindle/Thrillers

It's been a breakthrough week for 'The Delta Chain,' debuting on the Amazon UK Top 100 Kindle/Thrillers Paid Bestsellers List at #91 and reaching to #30 last Thursday (and #207 in overall ebooks) and then hovering in the #40's (Thrillers) for the rest of the week.

Across the Atlantic at the novels's overall ranking has risen from 400,000 and was hovering at around 5,000-6,000, not too shabby after last weekend's KDP Select promotion.

A big thank you to all those who've been supporting the novel and this blog, and my new Twitter ramblings @IainEdwardHenn

The Delta Chain - FREE on Kindle this weekend

Free for two days - Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March,(Pacific Standard Time) go here to download for your Kindle

There's nothing quite like an idea that comes with its own intriguing built-in mystery, one that won't go away, that keeps nagging at you, that screams out for a solution.

Several years ago I read a news article about a body found in a local bay. After several months the police had been unable to identify the body, and no-one that had been reported missing was a fit for the man's description.

I did some research and discovered that each year, in the U.S alone, close to 1,000 bodies were found that remained unidentified for long periods of time. Some were never identified. There are similar numbers each year in many other countries, including Australia. Who were they, where had they come from, how could no-one have noticed they were gone?

That was the starting point for my novel, 'The Delta Chain,' in which the investigating detective and a feisty young IT troubleshooter are united by a shared grief. Across the Pacific, a retired Chicago newsman, visiting Florida, is drawn in when he stumbles across some startling facts.

'The Delta Chain,' was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarterfinalist that has received 4 and 5 star reviews. The ebook edition is currently exclusive to Amazon, available for free rental to Amazon Prime members, and this weekend as a special promotion is FREE as a Kindle download.
