Quoting myself so anyone who got this rotten egg can turn it into a nice-looking rotten egg: Use calibre and choose 'Heuristic.'

A quick look showed that the author's mess is now OK.

A couple of books on my wishlist have dropped in price so I'd though I'd share. They're on sale at Amazon/B&N/Sony, Sony links included below

Big City Bad Blood by Sean Chercover Book 1 in the Ray Dudgeon series $0.99
Quote:
A disillusioned newspaper reporter turned private detective, Ray Dudgeon isn't trying to save the world. He just wants to do an honest job, and do it well. But when doing an honest job threatens society's most powerful and corrupt, Ray's odds for survival make for a sucker's bet. . . .

While working on a movie in Chicago, Hollywood locations manager Bob Loniski saw something he shouldn't have. Now he's a prosecution witness against a suspected member of the Chicago Outfit. Petrified, he comes to Ray for protection. Ray's mob contacts insist that they have no interest in Loniski, so he takes the bodyguard gig.

Then people start dying and everything goes to hell.
The Damage Done by Hilary Davidson Book 1 in the Lily Moore Series $2.99
Quote:
Lily Moore, a successful travel writer, fled to Spain to get away from her troubled, drug-addicted younger sister, Claudia. But when Claudia is found dead in a bathtub on the anniversary of their mother's suicide, Lily must return to New York to deal with the aftermath.The situation shifts from tragic to baffling when the body at the morgue turns out to be a stranger's. The dead woman had been using Claudia's identity for months. The real Claudia had vanished, reappearing briefly on the day her impostor died. As Claudia transforms from victim to suspect in the eyes of the police, Lily becomes determined to find her before they do.Is Claudia actually missing, or is she playing an elaborate con game? And who's responsible for the body that was found in the bathtub?

Fatal Debt - Dorothy Howell, free today

'Dana Mackenzie finds herself working for a faceless financial institution—it’s either this or piercing ears at the mall—and while she’s grateful for a job, she has no intentions of following the corporate offices’ heartless orders.

When she’s instructed to repossess a 42-inch Sony television from an elderly couple, Dana intends to put her own twist on the assignment. But upon arriving at their run down house in a gang infested neighborhood, she’s horrified to find sweet old Mr. Sullivan murdered.

The homicide detective investigating the case is Nick Travis, Dana’s high school crush. Sparks ignite, but a dark secret threatens to keep them apart—unless Nick comes clean about the past.

Dana agrees to help Mr. Sullivan’s grieving family locate his grandson, a guy with a surprising new lifestyle who’s been missing since the day of the murder. Her good intentions put her in the thick of the murder investigation and on a collision course with the killer. '

The Delphi Agenda by Robert Swigart is free from booksBnimble.

Quote:
You thought the Inquisition was scary the first time around. Now they have modern technology!

Papyrologist Lisa Emmer’s world flips when the Surete meets her at her Metro station with news of the savage murder of the esteemed Paris historian Dr. Raimond Foix, her friend and mentor in the study of ancient documents. Horrified, Lisa finds clues at the crime scene left behind for her by her mentor—clues to a secret kept hidden for centuries. These clues make her a prime suspect in the murder investigation, and also put her directly in the cross-hairs of a deadly commando group that proves to be none other than a contemporary offshoot of the Inquisition.

They want an ancient document that reveals a secret so explosive it could change the world—a document they’ve been tracking for centuries. Led by a sadistic priest and a vicious but very accomplished nun with excellent military cred, their mission is to destroy the document—no matter what the cost in blood.

Desperate to clear her name and to stay alive, with the help of a handsome yet mysterious banker, Lisa must solve the clues and uncover the millennia-old secret before her adversaries can find and destroy it. Since she was a child Lisa had suffered from uncontrollable fugue states. Now she discovers just in time that what she always thought was a liability may in fact be an almost paranormal ability to see things in ways others cannot. The trail leads everywhere from ancient cemeteries and tombs throughout France to Istanbul and Greece, as Lisa and Steve desperately stay one step ahead of their enemies, solving the clues to a dangerous treasure hunt their lives now depend upon.

Free from Indie UK press, Galleons Green: Hidden Jeopardy (Rafi Khan Crime Thriller Series) by P. Venmore Rowland.

Quote:
A novel of corruption, suspense and romantic intrigue.

Belgravia, London. Victor Bartrev is a Russian oligarch with perilously few scruples and a very large chequebook. His huge Russian/EU gas deal is close to being signed. It should have been a done deal. Without warning, he discovers that his activities are under investigation but he is confident that his ruthless allies in the criminal and political worlds will neutralise this threat.

Rafi Khan is distraught when he finds that his partner, Detective Chief Inspector Kate Adams, has become a pawn in a deadly conspiracy and it seems that the politicians are willing to sacrifice her.

Rafi defies his bosses and takes on the criminals. He faces a desperate race against time, but first he has to uncover who is behind the deadly plot, before he has any chance of saving his partner's life…

A rich mixture of murder, mystery and romance – a tense and compelling thriller.

Hidden Jeopardy is a Rafi Khan crime thriller and the sequel to the acclaimed Latent Hazard: on the edge.
(Latent Hazard is $2.99).


Free from Endeavor Press: The Noose Tightens (A Sergeant Martin Nicols Mystery)
by Alistair Kinnon.

Quote:
In a dusty barn the body of a young boy is found hanging.

Murdered.

It is the most sickening case Sergeant Martin Nicols has ever witnessed.

And also the most baffling.

From a broken home, the boy may have been a victim of abuse. But by whom? And for what ends?

No one is speaking. And no one wants to help.

As he digs deep into the case, Nichols uncovers a seedy underworld of twisted desires and cruel punishments. A world that comes dangerously close to home: to his own police department: and to his own past.

As he gets closer and close to solving the case, the noose tightens.

But who's neck will be encircled by the rope?

'The Noose Tightens' is a brilliant psychological crime drama that will keep the reader guessing until the very last page.

In Sergeant Martin Nicols it introduces a memorable new character, a detective who must learn from his own troubled past to understand the mind of a killer - and hunt him down before his next victim is slain.

Baby Shark's Beaumont Blues by Robert Fate is $1.25. Second in the Baby Shark series. (First is $2.99 Baby Shark). Originally published by Capital Crime Press in 2006.

Quote:
Baby Shark’s BEAUMONT BLUES (Baby Shark Series book #2)
by Robert Fate

Anthony Finalist at Bouchercon 2008 ––
Library Journal - Starred Review ––

Story opens in September 1956 –– When a Texas oil heiress goes missing and bodies begin to fall it is up to newly-licensed P.I. Kristin Van Dijk and her cantankerous partner, Otis Millett, to confront dangerous Beaumont gangsters, prying Dallas cops, slick crooked lawyers, and a buxom waitress who smells like Evening in Paris. This is an anything-but-straightforward Baby Shark crime adventure that hits the ground running for its life from bullet-riddled page one to a hell-of-a-surprise climax you never saw coming.
Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death (Grantchester Mysteries) by James Runcie is $1.99 from Bloomsbury. This is 6 interconnected stories.

Quote:
Sidney Chambers,
the Vicar of Grantchester and Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral, is a thirty-two
year old bachelor. Tall, with dark brown hair, eyes the colour of hazelnuts and
a reassuringly gentle manner, Sidney is an unconventional clergyman and can go
where the police cannot.


In The
Grantchester Mysteries, Sidney, together with his roguish friend Inspector Horatio
‘Harry' Keating, must enquire into the suspect suicide of a Cambridge solicitor,
a scandalous jewellery theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, the unexplained
death of a well-known jazz promoter and a shocking art forgery the disclosure
of which puts a close friend in danger. Sidney discovers that being a detective, like
being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty, but alongside the
mysteries he solves he manages to find time for a keen interest in cricket,
warm beer and hot jazz, and the works of Tolstoy and Shakespeare - as well as a curious
fondness for a German widow three years his junior.


With a whiff of
Agatha Christie and a touch of Midsomer Murders, The
Grantchester Mysteries introduces a wonderful new hero into the
world of detective fiction.

Original Sin (a Peter Brichter mystery) by Mary Monica Pulver


'Kori Price Brichter planned on a wonderful Christmas. She and her police officer husband, Peter Brichter, had invited their friends, Frank and Mary Ryder and Gordon Ramsey, to spend the holiday with them, their son Jeep, and their nanny, Jill. Most important, Kori had invited Evelyn Biggins to join them. Having believed that all of her relatives had died, Kori was particularly thrilled to have found Evelyn, now her only living relative, to tell her of her family history. But Evelyn had only been in the house for a few hours when she was found, dead, in the house's library, victim of an apparent murder. Since the guests were now isolated in house because of a blizzard, the only possible conclusion is that one of them had killed Evelyn. But who? '

Free today at Amazon from Black Mask: Affair in Tokyo by John McPartland. It was first published as Fawcett Gold Medal #406 (1954) with the great cover art by Clark Hulings. (I love pulp cover art) UK

Although I haven't yet read this one, I read McPartland's Tokyo Rose last month and was impressed both by the well-done mystery and the colorful view of Tokyo in early 1952 just before the end of the Allied occupation. McPartland was a skilled writer who died at the age of 47. I'm delighted to see his Tokyo books published and promoted by Black Mask.

Thanks, BelleZora

For any readers who like these types of books (as I do), I also made this available as a Bbeb book a few years back, which is easily translated into epub or Mobi using calibre. It and a few other titles are available here on MobileRead for free. (I have a table of contents, by the way.)

Some KDP freebies:

P.J. Parrish is the pseudonym of a sister team who write the Edgar-nominated Louis Kincaid mysteries for Pinnacle. They offer a tie-in tale to said published series, which is a prequel to their upcoming latest novel: Claw Back

Steven Torres repeats his 2007 Dorchester/Leisure-paperbacked noir novel, The Concrete Maze, and offers a new collection of shorts (tending towards sfnal), The Box and Other Odd Stories

Previously KDP-included small publisher Camel Press offers some sort of humorous Da Vinci Code-esque impromptu buddy caper thriller thing by Mark Everett Stone with favourable reviews from Publishers Weekly and other venues: The Judas Line (this is the author of the zombie PI spoof mysteries you might have picked up last year)

Established author self-pub: L.J. Martin aka Larry Jay Martin has written over a dozen westerns for Kensington's Pinnacle imprint and has apparently ghost-written some bounty hunter action thrillers for them as well in conjunction with Bob Burton, if I'm reading the credits/bio correctly. He offers a newly-written corporate ladder-climbing revenge thriller, if you're interested: Windfall (pro-tip for aspiring backlist-releasers: Chalkboard is a step up from Comic Sans MS, admittedly, but it is still not a good font to use for your cover titles)

Don, your formatting of John McPartland's Affair in Tokyo is much better than the Black Mask copy.

For anyone interested in the blurb on the original back cover:

Quote:
The Tokyo route, they called it – the girl, the drinking, the needle – and even the Americans went for it. Most of them ended in the stockades, gray, rotten husks of men, trembling with the heroin need, or face down in the black canals that lace the city.

Like Lonesome Lee almost did.

I know. I’m Lee, and the intimate evil of postwar Japan left its mark on me.

And on my red-haired love – as we fled hand in hand from murder.

Thank you.

I don't believe I was using em dashes back then, unfortunately.

Also, for some reason calibre loses the color on the image, but one can always delete it and then attach a cover that is in color.
