When I bought it, the price was less than $6 and I saw it for less than that a few months later. I would think they would lower the price now to encourage people to get the new one.
I'm betting they raised the price after announcing who the author was.

BTW, I bought Cocaine Blues and figured I'd read them one after the other. I just started in on the Harry Potter detective.

No, they lowered the price when it became known as hers. And for a long time it was $6.99 at Amazon. I know that's what I paid.

IAC, I'll be interested to see what folks think. I certainly enjoyed it, though I can't say I enjoyed it as much as some others.

The Cuckoo's Calling is an excellent mystery. I read it last year. I enjoyed it even more than Cocaine Blues which I read earlier this year.
