Michael Avallone's Ed Noon Series $.99 each [Pulp/Detective] (Amazon) [US]

The first one in the series,The Tall Dolores, was free awhile back and $4.99 now, but the others are $.99; Violence in Velvet jwas just reduced from $4.99 to $.99.

Quote:
Ed Noon Series:

The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, spanning over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his “Mouse Auditorium”) but success moves him to better digs, with a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn towards science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.
The Spitting Image


Quote:
ED NOON MYSTERY #2

"She was a brunette edition, pocket size, but her binding wasn't what you usually found in bookstores." --Ed Noon, Private Eye

Which one of the very famous and beautiful Wexler twins is trying to kill the other in order to collect the million dollar payoff on the strangest last will and testament of all? Noon is caught between two lovely suspects and various murder attempts to make the will’s weird demands come true. The explosive solution takes place at a burning factory in the Bronx before the stunning showdown in Noon’s office, which he calls the Mouse Auditorium.

Dead Game

Quote:
ED NOON MYSTERY #3

“With a scream, she cut loose. She didn’t know how to handle a gun except for the old fashioned idea that all you had to do was keep pulling the trigger and you were bound to hit something.” --Ed Noon, Private Eye

A redhead, a brunette, a missing undiscovered Poe diary, and a murdered third baseman in an exhibition ball game with the New York Giants are the weird ingredients for the mad behavior of Mr. Arongio, the antique dealer who will stop at nothing to acquire a rare find. This one is studded with violence and bloody collisions. And two unforgettable heroines, Mimi Tango and Kitty Arongio, cats’ paws in the game of death.

Violence in Velvet

Quote:
ED NOON MYSTERY #4

"Pistol shots have a funny effect on me. I move when I hear them. Even if it isn't always in the right direction." --Ed Noon, Private Eye

A Broadway star’s wife is murdered, and her little daughter, the Small Lucille, hires Noon to track down the killer, who she thinks is her father. An intimate look at Times Square and Broadway and the backstage environs, in which Noon falls in love with the actor’s lovely agent, Helen Tucker. The roof of the largest Broadway theatre is the setting for an incredibly surprising yet poignant romantic finish.

The Tall Dolores is now $.99.

They have added a few more for $.99 each and one freebie.

Free #7. The Case of the Violent Virgin.

Quote:
ED NOON MYSTERY #7

"My eyes met hers and stopped. They had to. You just didn't look into eyes like those and turn away. Her voice was one thing. Her eyes were something else again. And she wasn't looking through me this time. I was getting a long once-over too."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

A deluxe express train to Chicago is the setting for a missing rare object d'art, the legendary statue known as the Violent Virgin and an equally fabulous diamond, the Blue Green. Noon mixes with a lovely lost blonde, a rich redhead with a dachshund, a polysyllabic bigwig and a venomous pair of remorseless killers. This case is author Avallone's tribute to The Lady Vanishes and The Maltese Falcon.
The following are $.99 each:

The Case of the Bouncing Betty

Quote:
"The first time I saw Betty she was bouncing. She kept on bouncing right up until the day she died. Why she died was no more important than why she bounced. Because when I found out why Betty bounced, I found out why she died."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

How many kinds of trouble can a girl get into on a mattress? Plenty... and Ed Noon thought he knew them all until he met Betty. For Betty was a mattress tester and she'd just bounced herself into a situation that had sent bullets whizzing about her ears and strangers haunting her footsteps. And that was the kind of trouble that called for a private eye like Ed Noon. Before he could bounce her out of it, he'd have to help her test a double-bed made for the morgue!
The Case of the Alarming Clock

Quote:
"That's just one of the reasons I had fallen for her so hard. She had my line of patter, my kind of thinking. I like people who laugh when they're facing a firing squad."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

Ed Noon receives an odd alarm clock in the mail with a mysterious message that leads to a showdown with some very murderous ex-Nazis and a diabolical plot to sabotage America's next, most crucial A-bomb test. Noon is reunited with the lovely Alma Wheeler (from THE TALL DOLORES) and has his very first contact with the White House... a contact which will ultimately lead to his future employment as a spy for Mr. President in many cases and years to come.
The Crazy Mixed-Up Corpse

Quote:
"The day the fur-bearing, gun-bearing blonde said, 'Strip, Noon. Take of all your clothes!' was the dizziest day of my private-eye life. The day I really got mixed up in the case of the Crazy Mixed-Up Corpse. But I didn't really start off as a fugitive from a nudist colony."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

Ed Noon's laundry suddenly becomes the all-important focus for the hunt of a lifetime, which brings him into harm's way via a very greedy stripper, a sadistic millionaire, and assorted goons and thugs. Noon has to find the reason why a corpse was seemingly murdered more than once.

Got it! Thank you.

These are great, crazy reads.

I picked up the other one that was free, at an earlier date.

I almost bought all the other ones, but I'm glad I waited.

Awesome and thanks for the tip.

I can *always* use more pulps and I haven't read any of these.

Thanks, NightBird!

That's THREE (3) to add to my collection.

The crazy wackiness of these reminds me a bit of my complete ebook collection of Richard Prather (Shell Scott - private eye) titles I purchased from Fictionwise a couple of years ago.
