Executive Privilege by Philip Margolin is free from HarperCollins. Kobo B&N

Quote:
When private detective Dana Cutler is hired to follow college student Charlotte Walsh, she never imagines the trail will lead to the White House. But the morning after Walsh's clandestine meeting with Christopher Farrington, President of the United States, the pretty young coed is dead—the latest victim, apparently, of a fiend dubbed "the D.C. Ripper."

A junior associate in an Oregon law firm, Brad Miller is stunned by the death row revelations of convicted serial killer Clarence Little. Though Little accepts responsibility for a string of gruesome murders, he swears he was framed for one of them: the death of a teenaged babysitter who worked for then-governor Farrington.

Suddenly nowhere in America is safe for a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer who possess terrifying evidence that suggests the unthinkable: that someone at the very highest level of government, perhaps the president himself, is a cold and brutal killer.

Mysteries & Thrillers from Algonquin Books for $1.99 each. These are being shown as one of the Kindle Daily Deals but it appears to be an Algonquin sale. Prices the same at Kobo and B&N. Kobo coupon bargainmoose40 for 40% off is still working (until 1/1/2013), bringing the price down to $1.19 each.

Actually it looks like Amazon has all or a bunch of their Thomas & Mercer imprint on sale (besides the Ian Fleming books), starting at $.99.

ETA: Be careful -- some of these are singles or serials.

Of note, the GM Ford Leo Waterman books that were on sale for $2.99 a couple of months ago are now $1.99.

Big Easy Bonanza is an omnibus with three novels (two by Julie Smith and one by Tony Dunbar) and a short story (by Smith). All set, of course, in New Orleans. It's $3.99 at Amazon.

The two novels by Smith have been freebies in the past, and her books do seem to sort of rotate through being occasional freebies, so if you are patient, they might be free again. Info on this in this MR thread.

Right now all three novels are $2.99 individually at Amazon and the short story is $0.99, so if you already have a couple, the omnibus is not a bargain, but if you don't have any of them, and you don't want to wait and see if the Smith novels go free again, $3.99 might not be bad.

Here's the info on the books/short story:

Quote:
FEEL LIKE A TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS….?

...complete with the requisite steamy romance, succulent food, colorful characters, and delicious danger? Danger in the Big Easy comes in so many forms—you could meet a stranger and never want to go home again, or maybe the wrong guy in a dark alley; or discover a penchant for po’boys that puts ten pounds on before you’ve finished your Abita amber.

Every bit of that—and so much more!—is guaranteed to happen within these digital pages (except the unseemly weight gain). BIG EASY BONANZA introduces three of New Orleans' best-loved detective series, featuring NOPD Detective Skip Langdon; quasi-honest gourmet lawyer Tubby Dubonnet; and poet/computer nerd/PI Talba Wallis.

As a bonus, or lagniappe, as we say on Frenchmen Street, we have a hilarious short story starring glamorous drag queen detective Diva Delish.

And that’s what this package is: simply Delish! Includes an Edgar-winner, an Edgar nominee, and a perennial Amazon best-seller. How can you go wrong?

HERE'S THE BREAKDOWN:

NEW ORLEANS MOURNING by Julie Smith -- The King of Carnival is shot off his throne during the fanciest parade of Mardi Gras, and, for reasons she's rather forget about, rookie cop Skip Langdon is assigned to the case. Rich in New Orleans lore and characters. Won the Edgar for best novel.

CROOKED MAN by Tony Dunbar-- Lawyer Tubby Dubonnet's honesty is tested--and found wanting--when he finds a gym bag full of money. But how to keep it and stay alive? Tubby's Mr. New Orleans--laid back to a fault, yet everywhere at once. His riffs on New Orleans food are particularly compelling.
Creole Foodie Noir.

LOUISIANA BIGSHOT by Julie Smith-- Odd couple PIs Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino dodge bullets as they unravel a crime and cover-up so shocking it has an entire town clammed up. Half the fun is in Talba and Eddie's tentative relationship-- if this were a movie, they'd be Queen Latifah and Danny de Vito.

PRIVATE CHICK by Julie Smith-- this short story introduces drag queen detective (and mixologist) Diva Delish. In the Marigny, the most fun neighborhood in New Orleans, Diva rules. Really, her name says it all!

"If you haven't discovered Smith yet, now is the time to do so . . . Move over, Sara Paretsky." —KPFA-FM (Berkeley, CA)
