The Lovejoy Omnibus contains the first four books in the Lovejoy mystery series by Jonathan Gash.

Quote:
SYNOPSIS

The Judas Pair
Every antique dealer is a bit of a detective, following clues to find the trophies that pay the rent, but when Lovejoy takes on the job of tracking down a pair of duelling pistols so rare that he's not even sure actually exist, he needs all the instincts of a detective to pick his way through an unsolved crime.
Along the way, he becomes convinced that the weapons do exist but that they have fallen into the hands of a vile murderer. Locating the ancient weapons seems like the least of his problems when Lovejoy then finds himself fighting for his life in a duel to the death!

Gold From Gemini
Lovejoy discovers how the lure of gold brings out the worst kind of treasure seeker when, broke as usual and earning a crust as an unlikely babysitter, he stumbles across the diaries of a painter that appear to point to the whereabouts of a fabled hoard of Roman gold coins.
Lovejoy is tempted to dismiss the whole thing as a hoax, but vile threats and violent intimidation have a way of changing his mind. He sets out to unravel the clues in the diaries, with some particularly nasty characters dogging his every move.

The Grail Tree
Lovejoy has heard of more nutters who have claimed to be in possession of the one, true Holy Grail than he has had hot dinners. He's not too impressed with the eccentric clergyman making the latest claim - especially when the good vicar turns out to be one of the finest forgers Lovejoy has ever met.
But when the vicar and his lady companion end up dead it becomes clear that someone else is after the old man's artefact. To solve the mystery and protect a precious piece of history, Lovejoy puts his life on the line and acquires a surprising new partner...

Spend Game
When Lovejoy witnesses a car crash that turns out to be a murder - with one of his oldest antique-dealer friends the victim - he sets out on a trail of revenge that leaves him pondering several bewildering questions.
Why did his friend buy up a load of junk furniture? What did he want with an old doctor's bag? Why was his friend killed? Who was trying to kill Lovejoy and - most perplexing of all - what the hell is he doing potholing through underground tunnels dodging armed hit men?
Couponable in Singapore (my favorite country to visit by far) and probably some others.

There is a four-book bundle of Alan Bradley's excellent (IMO) Flavia de Luce mystery series available. There are currently five books in the series, with a sixth coming out in January. This bundle contains the first four. ISBN is 9780345545404.

Quote:
Synopsis

Award-winning author Alan Bradley is a master of the British cozy mystery, and in Flavia de Luce, he has created a wickedly clever and intrepid young sleuth, hailed as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature” (USA Today). Now, in this captivating eBook bundle, readers can follow Flavia as she stirs up trouble to solve the most confounding of crimes.

THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE

“Delightful . . . [Flavia is] a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes.”—The Boston Globe

It is the summer of 1950—and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, Flavia de Luce, an eleven-year-old aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events: A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then, hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.

THE WEED THAT STRINGS THE HANGMAN’S BAG

“A smart, irreverent, unsappy mystery.”—Entertainment Weekly

Flavia de Luce, a genius at investigating murders, thinks that her days of crime-solving in the bucolic English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey are over—until puppeteer Rupert Porson has his own strings sizzled in an unfortunate rendezvous with electricity. But who’d do such a thing, and why? All clues point toward a suspicious death years earlier and a case the local constables can’t solve—without Flavia’s help. But in getting so close to who’s pulling the strings of this dance of death, has Flavia gotten in way over her head?

A RED HERRING WITHOUT MUSTARD

“Irresistibly appealing.”—The New York Times Book Review

In the hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey, the unflappable Flavia de Luce had asked a Gypsy woman to tell her fortune—never expecting to later stumble across the poor soul, bludgeoned almost to death in her own caravan. Was this an act of retribution by those convinced that the soothsayer abducted a local child years ago? As the red herrings pile up, Flavia must sort through clues fishy and foul to untangle dark deeds and dangerous secrets.

I AM HALF-SICK OF SHADOWS

“One of the most original, charming, devilishly creative and hilarious detectives of any age or any time.”—Bookreporter

It’s Christmastime when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, Flavia de Luce’s beloved home, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishop’s Lacey gathers to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evening’s shocking conclusion: a body found strangled to death with a length of film. Who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens, Flavia must ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.

The Inspector Lynley Collection contains the first four books in Elizabeth George's Inspector Lynley series. ISBN is 9781444779066.

Quote:
In the very first Inspector Lynley novel, A GREAT DELIVERANCE, Lynley and DS Barbara Havers are sent by Scotland Yard to solve a gruesome murder where they uncover a series of shocking revelations that shatter the façade of the peaceful Yorkshire village. In PAYMENT IN BLOOD, Inspector Lynley faces the most testing case of his career in an isolated Scottish mansion where a famous playwright is savagely murdered - one of the suspects is Lady Helen Clyde, the woman Lynley loves. WELL SCHOOLED IN MURDER is set in an old and distinguished public school. The body of a brilliant young pupil is discovered in a country churchyard. Hampered by the code of honour and loyalty that prevail, Inspector Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers discover within the confines of that privileged community a culture of cruelty that stretches back across the generations. In A SUITABLE VENGEANCE, Inspector Lynley investigation into the brutal murder of a local journalist tears apart powerful ties of love and friendship, shattering the tranquillity of the picturesque Cornish community and exposing a long-buried family secret. Its consequences irrevocably alter the course of Thomas Lynley's life.

Some more collections by Dana Stabenow. I bought these all a while ago, and have no idea what country I might have been in when I bought them.

The Liam Campbell Mysteries includes Fire and Ice, So Sure of Death, Nothing Gold Can Stay, and Better to Rest; ISBN: 9781936666621

The Kate Shugak Novels, Vol. 1 includes A Cold Day for Murder, A Fatal Thaw, and Dead in the Water; ISBN: 9781936666638

The Kate Shugak Novels, Vol. 3 includes Breakup, Killing Grounds, and Hunter's Moon; ISBN: 9781936666652

There was also a Vol. 2 which included A Cold-Blooded Business, Play with Fire, and Blood Will Tell, but it's not showing up for me now on the Kobo website, although it's still in my library.

YMMV on all of these - I'm not finding them again, so if someone figures out a country or countries they are available in, perhaps they could post it here...

Three Anne Rice bundles:

- The vampire Chronicles collection - 9780307762542
The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. It all began a quarter of a century ago with Interview with the Vampire. Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles.

INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
Witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses.

THE VAMPIRE LESTAT
Once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the decadent 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. His is a mesmerizing story–passionate and thrilling.

QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Akasha, the queen of the damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to “save” mankind–in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.



- The Complete Vampire Chronicles 12-Book Bundle - 9780345544742
Gathered here are the ten books that comprise the original saga:

INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
THE VAMPIRE LESTAT
QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
THE TALE OF THE BODY THIEF
MEMNOCH THE DEVIL
THE VAMPIRE ARMAND
MERRICK
BLOOD AND GOLD
BLACKWOOD FARM
BLOOD CANTICLE

. . . as well as the two books of the New Tales of the Vampires:

PANDORA
VITTORIO, THE VAMPIRE


- The Mayfair Witches Series 3-Book Bundle: Witching Hour, Lasher, Taltos - 9780345546104
On the screened porch of a great New Orleans house, now faded, a mute and fragile woman sits rocking. She belongs to a legendary dynasty of witches—a family that is itself haunted over the ages by a dangerous and seductive being named Lasher. Their story begins in our time, with a rescue at sea. Rowan Mayfair, a brilliant neurosurgeon aware of her abilities but oblivious to her ancient line, finds the drowned body of Michael Curry off the coast of California and brings him to life. In his brief interval of death, he has acquired a sensory power that mystifies and frightens him. Fiercely drawn to each other, Rowan and Michael set out to solve the mystery of her past and his unwelcome gift, and an intricate tale of evil unfolds: an evil unleashed in seventeenth-century Scotland, where the first “witch,” Suzanne of the Mayfair, conjures up the spirit that spells her own destruction and torments each of her descendants in turn.

The Joe Sandilands Omnibus contains books 1-4 in the Joe Sandilands mystery series by Barbara Cleverly. I have read all four of these and most of the books in the series, and quite enjoy the series, especially for the interesting settings and characters. (Disclosure: I'm quite a fan of historical mysteries.)

Quote:
The Last Kashmiri Rose
India 1922. In Panikhat, 50 miles from Calcutta, the wives of officers in the Bengal Greys have been dying violently, one every year and each in March. All the deaths are bizarre and appear to be accidental. The only link between them is the bunch of small red roses that appear on the women's graves on the anniversary of their deaths. In order to help solve these mysterious deaths, the Governor of Bengal calls on the reluctant help of Joe Sandilands, Scotland Yard detective and war hero who happens to be on secondment to the Bengal police. Joe learns that the deaths are connected and that the series has not yet run its course. But who will be the recipient of the next Kashmiri rose? Is Joe hunting an Indian or European killer? And what is the reason behind the slaying of the officers' wives? With only days to go before the end of March can Joe uncover the murderer whose compulsions seem to be rooted deeply within the dark soul of India itself?

Ragtime in Simla
Simla 1922. The summer capital of the British Raj is fizzing with the energy of the jazz age. Commander Joe Sandilands is looking forward to spending a month here in the cool of the Himalayan hills as the guest of Sir George Jardine, the Governor of Bengal. When Joe's travelling companion, a Russian opera singer, is shot dead at his side in the back of the Governor's car on the road up to Simla, he finds himself plunged into a murder investigation. Confronted by the mystery of an identical unsolved killing a year before, Joe realizes that Sir George's hospitality comes at a price. Behind the sparkling façade of social life in Simla he finds a trail of murder, vice and blackmail. Someone in this close-knit community has a secret and the nearer Joe comes to uncovering it, the nearer he comes to his own death.

The Damascened Blade
The North-West Frontier, 1910. The screams of a wounded British officer abandoned at the bottom of a dark ravine are heard by a young Scottish subaltern. Ignoring the command to retreat back to base the Highlander sets out alone, with dagger in hand, to rescue his fellow officer from the Pathan tribesmen who are slowly torturing him to death.
Over a dozen years later the backwash of this tragedy threatens to engulf Joe Sandilands. On secondment from Scotland Yard, Joe is spending a fortnight with his old army friend, James Lindsay, commander of the front line fort at Gor Khatri. An uneasy peace is in operation with the Afghans but into this already-delicate situation is injected an ill-assorted group of visitors to the fort. After a skirmish which results in the death of a Pathan prince and the taking of hostages, Joe and his companion James are given seven days in which to identify, arrest and execute the killer before the frontier erupts into war.
Drawing on all his courage and detective skills Joe must find out who the murderer is before more bloody deaths occur, the legacy of a bitter feud with its roots hidden deep in the past.

The Palace Tiger
India, 1922. In this, the fourth in the acclaimed Joe Sandilands series, Scotland Yard detective Joe arrives in the princely state of Ranipur at the request of the Maharajah, an old ally of the British. The Maharajah is dying, and the succession is unclear. The death of his first son, while panther-wrestling, is suspicious, but as Joe begins to investigate a second son dies dramatically right before his eyes. With only the youngest, aged 12, now left to succeed, can Joe ensure his survival? In the glittering and luxurious setting of the court with its array of powerful, scheming characters, Joe must find his way through the maze of intrigue to trap, at last, the palace tiger.
It's couponable in Singapore at least, and probably in other places. ISBN is 9781472115256.

Two Captain Lacey mystery collections (author: Ashley Gardner, pen name for Jennifer Ashley) are available. The first several in this series were published in DTB back in the early 2000's, and she has continued with some additional self-pubbed books in the series, which I have enjoyed as much as the DTB-original ones.

Quote:
Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Volume One, by Ashley Gardner

A collection of the first three novels in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series plus two Captain Lacey short stories first published in mystery magazines.

This book bundle includes:
The Hanover Square Affair (full-length novel)
A Regimental Murder (full-length novel)
The Glass House (full-length novel)
The Gentleman’s Walking Stick (two short stories)

Meet Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London with little money and no purpose, but with a sense of honor and fairness. He’s pulled into a search for a missing young woman, and thus begins investigating crime, using his status as a gentleman but a poor one to cross the boundaries between the top of society and the working class of the back streets.

In The Hanover Square Affair, a missing girl and horrific corpse plunge Captain Lacey into the dark underworld of Regency London.

In A Regimental Murder Captain Lacey is on hand to save the life of a beautiful widow; he then investigates the death of her husband, a colonel who had been accused of murdering a cavalry officer during the Peninsular War.

In The Glass House, Lacey investigates the death of a barrister’s young wife, and links her to a notorious brothel where the haut ton play.

Two short stories finish off the collection. In “The Disappearance of Miss Sarah Oswald,” Lacey is asked to locate a man’s missing daughter, though he senses that the family would be just as happy for her to remain missing. In “The Gentleman’s Walking Stick,” Lacey untangles a web of deceit involving a respectable society man, his only clue being a missing walking stick.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy from the plush ballrooms of Mayfair to the darker streets of Regency London.

A collection of books 4-6 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series plus an original novella, The Necklace Affair. A $10 value for $6.99

Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London after being injured in the Peninsular War, has found some purpose investigating crime. Along with his friend, Lucius Grenville, a dandy who’s one of the wealthiest men in England, Lacey delves into the dark world behind the glittering Regency ballrooms. He’s solved murders and robberies, has assisted Bow Street and the Thames River Police, and has been pulled into the schemes of a powerful crime lord. In this collection, Captain Lacey takes a post in a boys’ school as well as hunts criminals from Mayfair mansions to the back streets of Covent Garden.

In The Sudbury School Murders, a corpse in a Berkshire canal leads Captain Lacey on a twisted trail of blackmail and corruption in a school for boys of England’s wealthiest families.

In The Necklace Affair, Captain Lacey comes upon a distressed lady at one of Grenville’s soirees, whose innocent maid has been arrested for theft. Lacey hunts for the true thief of the diamond necklace and becomes entangled in a mesh of dark secrets.

In A Body in Berkeley Square, Lacey is called in to solve a murder at a grand society ball. The accused? His mentor and former friend, Colonel Brandon. Colonel Brandon is certainly acting guilty, and only Lacey is willing to prove him innocent.

A Covent Garden Mystery plunges Lacey into a case that hits close to home—girls are going missing in Covent Garden, and one happens to be his daughter.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he further investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy.
I haven't found these at Kobo, so don't know if they are couponable, but they are only $0.99 for the first one and $6.99 for the second one at Amazon US and BN US, which is not too bad even without coupons.
