Raymond Chandler's Playback is $3.49 on Amazon.

Marlowe is hired by an influential lawyer he's never herd of to tail a gorgeous redhead, but decides he prefers to help out the redhead. She's been acquitted of her alcoholic husband's murder, but her father-in-law prefers not to take the court's word for it.

"Chandler wrote like a slumming angel and invested the sun-blinded streets of Los Angeles with a romantic presence:" -- Ross Macdonald
Amazingly, I found a good deal in Australia

http://www.amazon.com/Novels-Penguin...ymond+chandler

Omnibus is 9.99 :-

Raymond Chandler created the fast talking, trouble seeking Californian private eye Philip Marlowe for his first great novel The Big Sleep in 1939. Marlowe's entanglement with the Sternwood family - and an attendant cast of colourful underworld figures - is the background to a story reflecting all the tarnished glitter of the great American Dream. The detective's iconic image burns just as brightly in Farewell My Lovely, on the trail of a missing nightclub crooner. And the inimitable Marlowe is able to prove that trouble really is his business in Raymond Chandler's brilliant epitaph, The Long Goodbye.

No argument. No arts. No original thought. No rogue ideologies. You know the rules. This is all for your own good. The Management have spoken.

It is Glasgow. It is 2024. Things are very different, now.

Slipping between the cracks in Glasgow’s epidemic apathy, dangerously reasonable government body The Management have taken over without a tremor of protest. Thinly veiling their regime as the restoration of Order and Decency, citizens must submit to ever-harsher rules and restrictions. Soon, books, records and paintings fuel dustbin fires across the city. Buildings crumble. Traffic halts. People vanish without explanation. And no-one dares go looking.
Tattered banners scream a reminder. ALL FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.

This city has been misbehaving for far too long.

Dead Wood by Dani Amore

In the exclusive enclave of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, a woman who builds custom guitars is murdered. A disgraced ex-cop turned private investigator is hired by the dead woman's father and immediately becomes the target of a violent ex-convict. An enigmatic music star performs damage control on her links to the dead woman. And a professional killer who idolizes Keith Richards is brought into town by a mysterious employer.



"Dead Wood is a fast-paced, unpredictable mystery with an engaging
narrator and a rich cast of original supporting characters."
--Thomas Perry, Edgar-winning author of The Butcher's Boy.

"From its opening lines, Dani Amore and her private eye novel DEAD
WOOD recall early James Ellroy. This is the first new private
eye novel in a long time that just swept me along for the ride. Amore is
definitely one to watch."
-- Edgar-nominated author Craig McDonald

Wow - apparently T. Jefferson Parker is self-publishing some of his backlist, and they are very cheap right now - starting at $.99, plus one freebie.

The Blue Hour

Quote:
Tim Hess is a semi-retired homicide cop staring at his own death sentence – lung cancer. Time is running out. Thrice divorced and childless, Hess is the classic loner cop – so he’s happy to accept the difficult job offered to him: find and stop a serial killer who’s been abducting beautiful young women in Orange County.

His new partner, and boss, is the brash, ambitious Merci Rayborn. She’s unpopular and unloved by her fellow cops, but she’s also relentless, smart and principled. Hess, challenged by the investigation and by his own disease, isn’t happy about taking orders from Merci, and he certainly isn’t planning for her to fall in love with him…

I started a thread about the SF Gateway sale a couple of weeks ago. I've just noticed that orion's second backlist imprint, The Murder Room, is running a similar sale, dropping all their prices from £4.99 to £2.99 here in the uk. This includes John Dickson Carr, Anthony Price and many others.

I'm not sure of any availability outside the UK.

I'm not seeing a press release for this one, maybe amazon UK have jumped the gun with the price changes. I don't know when the sale is officially meant to run.

Hmm, no, they're the same at kobo.

What a cool find, thanks! Haven't read any Parker yet, but he's been on my mental TBR for a while...

Also, thanks to you and DrNefario for the Orion info, and doing the search. Antony Price is another I've been wanting to read for a while. Fingers crossed for some sale prices.

Another L. Ron Hubbard freebie on Amazon:

Carnival of Death (Stories from the Golden Age)

Discover intrigue and suspense. Working deep undercover to break up a purported drug ring operating at Shreve's Mammoth Carnival, US narcotics agent Bob Clark discovers first one and then another headless body. Others believe the gruesome murders are solved after four tribal headhunters working for the show suddenly disappear, but Clark suspects someone else is the real killer. When he finds himself seized by the very same headhunters, Clark sincerely hopes his hunch is right, since the point of a very sharp knife is aimed at his neck! ALSO INCLUDES THE MYSTERY STORY "THE DEATH FLYER"

Whilst looking for The Murder Room mysteries I came across this freebie:

The Spymaster Murders
Trevelyn

http://www.amazon.com/Spymaster-Murd...master+murders

Don't know anything about the author or the book. Here's the blurb:

An impossible murder, a killing in a locked room and the disappearance of a senior military figure become a baptism of fire for Wing Commander Derek Rigby. The story unfolds at Aldergrove in Northern Ireland, as a distant war rages over the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. Rigby must solve the murders, expose a deep-cover Soviet agent and sort out his catastrophic personal life in a case which sets him on the path to becoming the senior counter-intelligence operative we meet, decades later, in the Monica Jones Mysteries (The Sheffield Conspiracy and The Priests of Orion). All the clues and signposts are laid out for the reader in a puzzle which pays tribute to the Golden Age of British detective fiction.
