Kobo Mystery Suspense Deals - 99¢ to $1.99

There are some pretty good deals in the current "Cheap Reads" section at Kobobooks.com. Here's a selection:

George Pelecanos - Soul Circus - $1.99
Little, Brown And Company, February 2003
A Washington, D.C., crime lord fights for his life in court while P.I. Derek Strange finds a woman whose testimony could mean death or freedom for the crime lord.

Elena Forbes - Die With Me - $0.99
House of Anansi Press Inc, April 2011
Die. Die with me. Be mine forever. That's what he had said. When fourteen-year-old Gemma Kramer's broken body is found on the floor of St. Sebastian's Church in a quiet London suburb, the official ruling is that she jumped to her death from the organ gallery. But when a witness claims to have seen Gemma kissing a much older man outside shortly beforehand, and a toxicology report reveals traces of a date-rape drug in the girl's system, a murder investigation is launched. At the helm is Mark Tartaglia, a stubborn detective known for following his hunches.

J A Jance
- Until Proven Guilty - $0.99
HarperCollins, October 2009
The little girl was only five, much too young to die -- a lost treasure who should have been cherished, not murdered.She could have been J.P. Beaumont's kid, and the determined Seattle homicide detective won't rest until her killer pays dearly. But the hunt is leading Beaumont into a murky world of religious fanaticism, and toward a beautiful, perilous obsession all his own. And suddenly Beau himself is a target -- because faith can be dangerous...and love can kill.

Gordon Ferris - The Hanging Shed - $1.99
McArthur & Company, July 2011
Glasgow, 1946. The last time Douglas Brodie came home it was 1942 and he was a dashing young warrior in a kilt. Now, the war is over but victory"s wine has soured and Brodie"s back in Scotland to try and save childhood friend Hugh Donovan from the gallows. Everyone thought Hugh was dead, shot down in the war. Perhaps it would have been kinder if he had been killed. The man who returns from the war is unrecognizable: mutilated, horribly burned. Hugh keeps his own company, only venturing out for heroin to deaden the pain of his wounds. When a local boy is found raped and murdered, there is only one suspect. Hugh claims he"s innocent but a mountain of evidence says otherwise. Despite the hideousness of the crime, ex-policeman Brodie feels compelled to try and help his one time friend.

Kate White - If Looks Could Kill - $1.99
Grand Central Publishing, May 2003
Meet Bailey Weggins, the thirty-something, single-again true crime writer for a leading Manhattan woman's magazine. Smart and savvy, she's got a sixth sense when it comes to seeing the truth in a story-especially if it's murder. Bailey's in bed with her commitment-challenged lover K.C. when she gets a frantic call from her high-maintenance boss at Gloss magazine. Grabbing coffee and a cab outside her Greenwich Village apartment-the consolation prize in her divorce settlement-Bailey reluctantly heads uptown. At Cat Jones's Upper East Side town house, she finds something that seriously clashes with the chic décor: the dead body of the family's line-in nanny. As Bailey-unofficially-delves into the murdered girl's past, she finds no shortage of A-list suspects.

Phyllis Smallman - Champagne for Buzzards - $1.99
--> all four Sherry Travis at this price <--
McArthur & Company, March 2011
With its seven-foot snakes and nasty horses, Florida ranch country can be as dangerous as the mean streets of any big city. Sherri Travis doesn"t do country. She likes it even less when she meets Clay Adams" psychotic neighbors and finds a dead man in the back of her pickup. With fairy lights dancing through the Spanish moss and violent men closing in, the surprise birthday party Sherri plans for Clay turns deadly. And while it isn't the party Sherri hoped for, it's a good one just the same.

The section link is here.

Kobo Also announced Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer as a deal of the day. http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/The-L..._bA/page1.html It's good for US and Canada.

pendragginp--welcome to our world, many of the deals are US only from Kindle and others.

It would be neat if they begin to have this as a regular feature, like Amazon is doing.

I was able to use some of the coupon codes from this other thread (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=147646) on SOME of the books from this sale.

I didn't try them on all of the sale books (obviously), but the dollar-off codes worked for me on a couple of the Phyllis Smallman books, so they were only $0.99. I wasn't able to use a code on the Kate White book.

Unfortunately the codes say they expire tonight, and Kobo codes usually expire on time as stated. So, you'll have to act fast.

Like pendragginp, I was georestricted - in my case, from the Ferris book. I note that the OP is in Canada, so presumably it's available there, and not in the US.
