Thanks for pointing that out, koland.

Rough Justice by Victor Kline

Amazon US

Amazon UK

"Barrister Felicio Tagg, the wonderfully incompetent, unimpeachably unsuccessful hero of Victor Kline's 'Rough Justice', has trouble with justice too. At the bottom of the barristerial barrel, Tagg has never left the courtroom with winged victory perched on his shoulder. 'Like the much sought after but mythical, perfect circle, he just went round and round in a fixed groove, unbroken, undefiled and unimpeachably unsuccessful'.
"Then briefed by mistake, he finds himself amongst the paddocks and pesticides of Cootamundra, pursuing both his client's missing stud bull and his disenchanted wife. Kline's use of language is appropriately erudite and occasionally fanciful, and he has a rare ability to be both oratorical and intimate. A most engaging indictment of the lawyering trade."
Graeme Blundell, The Sydney Morning Herald

Another Jeffrey Marks mystery-writer bio:

Who Was That Lady? Craig Rice: Queen of the Screwball Mystery

Amazon US

Amazon UK

What goes up must come down, and Craig Rice’s meteoric rise to the top of the mystery writing heap by 1946 was rivaled only by her rapid descent into semi-obscurity. Her face once graced the cover of Time magazine, but today her books are found in second hand stores.

The mystery surrounding Rice was almost as puzzling as her books. Where was she born? What was her given name? What novels and short stories did she publish? Who did she marry and how many times? How many children did she have? Where did the penname of Craig Rice emanate from? How did she die? In the forty years since her death, the answers to these questions were buried under piles of confusion, lies, and exaggeration. In the 20th century how could these basic questions of a person’s life be so vague?

Jeffrey Marks began a quest to learn the answers. His research took the better part of a decade. He traced Rice’s oeuvre back to original manuscripts to determine authorship. He tracked down relative, friends, and other writers to learn answers on Craig’s name, her heritage, and her descent from superstardom into drinking, mental illness, and trouble with the law.

The Snatch by Bill Pronzini, first in the Nameless Detective series, went from $9.99 to $2.99

The Dark City (Elliot Ness) by Max Allan Collins is also down to $2.99 from $9.99
These are both $2.78 on the Australian Kobo I suspect they may also be couponable
Also couponable (can that really be a word) at Kobo US site....

Four Daniel Hecht books for $1.99 each at Amazon US and Kobo. Two are from his paranormal mystery series, the other two a standalone and its prequel.

City of Masks

Quote:
In City of Masks, the first Cree Black novel, parapsychologist Cree and her partner take a case in New Orleans’s Garden District that leaves them fearing for their own lives. The 150-year-old Beauforte House has long stood empty, until Lila Beauforte resumes residence and starts to see some of the house’s secrets literally come to life. Tormented by an insidious and violent presence, Lila finds herself trapped in a life increasingly filled with childhood terrors. It takes Cree’s unconventional take on psychology and her powerful natural empathy with Lila to navigate the dangerous worlds of spirit and memory, as they clash in a terrifying tale of mistaken identity and murder.
Amazon

Kobo

Land of Echoes

Quote:
Parapsychologist Cree Black is called to a New Mexico school for gifted Navajo teens to investigate the mysterious symptoms of a student. Sixteen-year-old Tommy Keeday is wracked nightly with violent convulsions. Is the boy possessed by the spirit of an ancestor, as his family believes? Or is something even more sinister going on?
Amazon

Kobo


Puppets

Quote:
The New Jersey State Police had started calling him Howdy Doody, after the famous TV puppet of the 1950s. Three people killed in northern New Jersey, then three in Manhattan and another in the Bronx, in a thirteen-month period. And all of them hung up with strings attached to their limbs, like puppets. Finally the murderer was caught in New York City. Or so it seems-until State Police detective Mo Ford finds another victim, killed and arranged in exactly the same way. Is it a copycat crime, or did the police catch the wrong man? Mo’s theory about what happened soon expands to involve U.S. intelligence agencies and a horrific experiment with human beings. With so many forces behind the scenes, who is the real puppet master?
FYI warning: Reviewers state animals and people are tortured in this book.

Kobo


Skull Session

Quote:
Back in print and accompanied by its prequel Puppets, the bestselling Skull Session is a classic tale of suspense. Despite his brilliance, Paul Skoglund hasn’t held a steady job for years, partly because of his Tourette’s syndrome. When his eccentric, wealthy aunt asks him to take on the repairs of her magnificent hunting lodge, he is in no position to refuse. But then he finds that the rambling old house has been savagely vandalized: he discovers a scene of almost superhuman destruction, a violence mirrored by a series of disappearances and grisly deaths haunting the region. Paul delves into the wreckage, wondering what dark passion-and what strength-could cause such chaos. As state police investigator Mo Ford pursues the mystery through official channels, escalating events force Paul deeper into his family’s past and into the darker aspects of his own nature.

Lost in Juarez by Douglas Lindsay is free again.

Quote:
THEY ARE WATCHING.

4 million names on the DNA database and counting.
CCTV cameras on every street corner.
Telephone records available to any agency which requests them.
Shared information, ID cards and spy satellites…

All in the name of freedom.

Britain in the 21st century. They know who you are. They know where you’ve been. They know what you’re thinking. Now one man will stand against them. But how can he win when everyone around him is dying and the security services already know his next move?

Trust no one. Don’t look over your shoulder. And don’t stop running. Never stop running…
Last freebie by Chris Wiltz - Glass House.

Quote:
A novel inspired by the true story of a lone policeman who was killed at the edge of one of the most dangerous housing projects in New Orleans.

Thea Tamborella returns to New Orleans after a ten-year absence to find the city of her birth changed, still a place of deep contradictions, a sensuous blend of religion, tradition, bonhomie, and decadence, but now caught in a web of fear caused by bad economic times, crime, and racial unrest.

Burgess Monroe is the drug kingpin of the Convent Street Housing Project. He’s always known he would die young, and now he wants to use his wealth to do something for the poor people of the project where he grew up.

Delzora Monroe, Burgess’s mother, works as a housekeeper in the mansion on Convent Street that Thea inherits from her aunt. Zora loves her son, but she knows that he has used his life to do evil, and she mistrusts his motives. She fears the repercussions when an attraction develops between Thea and Burgess.

The violence that results from the death of the lone cop has the city in the grips of fear. On both sides of Convent Street, the rich and the poor, that violence is about to be played out…

Freebie by James Reasoner - a Western mystery: Robbers Roost

Quote:
Originally published as Powell's Army: #4 by Terence Duncan

Three-fingered Jack and his gang of road agents had a craving for money and a place to spend it. After hijacking an rmy payroll wagon and killing the troopers riding guard, they hightailed it into Virginia City, where anything could be had for the asking by a hardcase with a fat poke. But hot on their trail was hard-hitting trio of undercover agents known as Powell's Army. They knew Montana lived by the law of the gun. And that meant bracing Jack's killer gang before the vigilantes did---to make sure they stretched hemp the legal way!

Thundering out of the past. A trio of deadly enforcers ride the range to adventure with one military misfit. Three men and one red-headed woman unchained lightning in a savage, lawless land, the U.S. army's secret weapon, dispensing their own fiery brand of frontier justice throughout the American west, Violent, untamed, and unpredictable--nothing can stop them.

A lifelong Texan, James Reasoner has been a professional writer for more than thirty years. In that time, he has authored several hundred novels and short stories in numerous genres. James is best known for his Westerns, historical novels, and war novels, he is also the author of two mystery novels that have achieved cult classic status, TEXAS WIND and DUST DEVILS. Writing under his own name and various pseudonyms, his novels have garnered praise from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and the Los Angeles Times, as well as appearing on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists several times. His website is www.jamesreasoner.com
The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie from Soho Press is $1.99.

Quote:
British actor and comedian Hugh Laurie's first book is a spot-on spy spoof about hapless ex-soldier Thomas Lang, who is drawn unwittingly and unwillingly into the center of a dangerous James Bond–like plot of international terrorists, arms dealing, high-tech weapons, and CIA spooks. You may recall having seen Laurie in the English television series Jeeves and Wooster; Laurie played Bertie Wooster, the clutzy hero of the P.G. Wodehouse comic novels that originated those characters. The lineage from Wodehouse's Wooster to Laurie's Lang is clear, and, if you like Wodehouse, you'll probably love The Gun Seller.
