Free (K) Graveyard Plots by Bill Pronzini [Mystery/Short Stories]

From Crossroad Press, Bill Pronzini’s Graveyard Plots is free on Amazon US today:

http://www.amazon.com/Graveyard-Plot...dp/B00789STBI/

In this collection of 23 short stories, Bill Pronzini, prolific, award-winning west-coast mystery writer and creator of the well-known "Nameless Detective" series, the author's style and versatility truly shine. These tales, including three that feature his well-known series chararacter, the "Nameless Detective" run the gamut from psychological suspense ("Strangers in the Fog") to satire ("A Craving for Originality") to Western gothic ("The Hanging Man" and "His Name was Legion").


Also free on Amazon from Allium Press is Libby Fischer Hellman's A Bitter Veil:

http://www.amazon.com/A-Bitter-Veil-...dp/B007O1NSV6/

It all began with a line of Persian poetry . . . Anna and Nouri, both studying in Chicago, fall in love despite their very different backgrounds. Anna, who has never been close to her parents, is more than happy to return with Nouri to his native Iran, to be embraced by his wealthy family. Beginning their married life together in 1978, their world is abruptly turned upside down by the overthrow of the Shah, and the rise of the Islamic Republic.
Under the Ayatollah Khomeini and the Republican Guard, life becomes increasingly restricted and Anna must learn to exist in a transformed world, where none of the familiar Western rules apply. Random arrests and torture become the norm, women are required to wear hijab, and Anna discovers that she is no longer free to leave the country.
As events reach a fevered pitch, Anna realizes that nothing is as she thought, and no one can be trusted…not even her husband.

All right, gonna turn this into a quickie mystery thread for today - seem to be several decent finds, trad-pubbed or newly re-pubbed. [All on Amazon]

From Oceanview Publishing, Little Lamb Lost by Margaret Fenton

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Lamb-Lo...dp/B0076TH58I/

PW: Fenton puts her experiences as a social worker to good use in her promising debut. After toddler Michael Hennessy dies of a drug overdose, Claire Conover, of the Birmingham, Ala., Department of Human Services, doesn't believe the boy's mother, Ashley, spiked his sippy cup. Ashley, who has a history of hardcore drugs and booze, had been working too hard to get clean in order to regain custody of Michael. Determined to find the real killer, Claire sets out on a course that could cost her career or even her life. Fenton paces her straightforward plot well, but her real strength is in the way she develops her characters' relationships. A number of secondary players—an investigative reporter and a guy who knows his way around a computer—pave the way for a sequel. With her fine ear for regional speech, Fenton may do for Birmingham what Margaret Maron has done for rural North Carolina.

From Blasted Heath Press, All the Young Warriors by Anthony Neil Smith

http://www.amazon.com/All-The-Young-...dp/B005ZMHX2G/

When two of the Twin Cities' “Lost Boys” — young Somali men drafted to fight for terrorists back in the homeland — kill a pair of cops on his home turf, detective Ray Bleeker is left devastated. One of the dead cops was his girlfriend. The investigation grinds to a halt when he discovers that the young murderers have fled to Somalia to fight in the rebel army. He's at his wits' end when the father of one of the boys, an ex-gang leader named Mustafa, comes looking for answers, wanting to clear his son's name and refusing to take no for an answer. Bleeker and Mustafa form an uneasy alliance, teaming up to help bring the boys back home to stand trial. But little do they know what Somalia has in store for them.

The Big Freeze by Michael J. Katz

http://www.amazon.com/The-Big-Freeze...dp/B007UCE57K/

Library Journal: Chicago-based private investigator Murray Glick, mystery-cruise concessionaire, and appealing New York "backups" Andy and Susie Sussman (newscaster and lawyer) brighten the ski slopes at Sunburst, Colorado, in their newest case ( Last Dance in Redondo Beach , Putnam, 1988). Beguiling skirt-chaser Glick, hot on the tracks of a young woman who quit college to move in with a greedy ski instructor, connects her disappearance to a questionable land development scheme and the death-by-avalanche of a young ranger. Assuming various disguises to trick the unwary, Glick locates the woman and closes in on the conspirators...

Whoops - guess I forgot to search first, for some reason I just assumed the Pronzini was new...

More from Bill Pronzini

For those of you who are fans of Bill Pronzini's work, there is a short story of his still available as a free Audible audiobook. It's called "The Booktaker," and I highly recommend it.
