I find it's pretty much never right on price & hasn't been for a long time.

Very possible. Everyone keep your eyes open before you click "Buy".

I'd like to nominate The Case of the Velvet Claws by Erle Stanley Gardner. If all you know of Perry Mason is what you've seen on TV, you're in for a shock. This is the first Perry Mason story, and in those early days he was quite different from the later books, written by Gardner after his fellow attorneys criticized him for writing about a lawyer who played so fast and loose with the rules. Unfortunately the ebook is only available from Amazon as far as I can tell, although there is a 1½ hour Radio Dramatization at Audible.

Quote:
Thanks to a bungled robbery at a fancy hotel, the already-married Eva Griffin has been caught in the company of a prominent congressman. To protect the politico, Eva's ready to pay the editor of a sleazy tabloid his hush money. But Perry Mason has other plans. He tracks down the phantom fat cat who secretly runs the blackmailing tabloid -- only to discover a shocking scoop.

By the time Mason's comely client finally comes clean, her husband has taken a bullet in the heart. Now Perry Mason has two choices: represent the cunning widow in her wrangle for the dead man's money -- or take the rap for murder.

Inkmesh is constantly out of date. It's almost not worth using.

I have noticed they don't seem to be on top of things like they used to be. Any suggestions for a replacement?

Wow, I was just about to second The Case of the Velvet Claws until I saw Synamon just posted. (refresh just before posting is my friend!)

I'll third Velvet Claws and say that Synamon, your tastes this month are superb! (since you supported the same three books as me )

Why thank you!

I only supported those ones since Crocodile and Faceless Killers were already fully nominated.

Although I have noticed that I often do like your choices for bookclub and add them to my to-be-read list even if they don't get picked, so keep up the good work.

I nominate The Roman Hat Mystery, the first Ellery Queen story.

I too found inkmesh to be of no help.

Kindle:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Roman-Hat-...an+Hat+Mystery

Kobo:
http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/The-R...9zZLkyEFpg&r=1

"Despite the dismal Broadway season, Gunplay continues to draw crowds. A gangland spectacle, it’s packed to the gills with action, explosions, and gunfire. In fact, Gunplay is so loud that no one notices the killing of Monte Field. In a sold-out theater, Field is found dead partway through the second act, surrounded by empty seats. The police hold the crowd and call for the one man who can untangle this daring murder: Inspector Richard Queen.

With the help of his son Ellery, a bibliophile and novelist whose imagination can solve any crime, the Inspector attacks this seemingly impenetrable mystery. Anyone in the theater could have killed the unscrupulous lawyer, and several had the motive. Only Ellery Queen, in his debut novel, can decipher the clue of the dead man’s missing top hat."

We could do what I did. I did a few manual searches at some of the more popular eBook shops and posted them in the message with the nomination.

No eBook search engine is all that reliable. We could do Sony, B&N, Kobo, & Amazon for searches.

Folks from outside the US might appreciate Books on Board, maybe Waterstones (are they still selling ebooks?).


Could always ask the person nominating the book to provide links so Tom doesn't get overworked. I've added links to my nomination.

I nominate Heat Wave by Richard Castle. The book is available free for Amazon Prime customers, and the third book in the series is on sale at Amazon for $1.99.

Quote:

A New York real estate tycoon plunges to his death on a Manhattan sidewalk. A trophy wife with a past survives a narrow escape from a brazen attack. Mobsters and moguls with no shortage of reasons to kill trot out their alibis. And then, in the suffocating grip of a record heat wave, comes another shocking murder and a sharp turn in a tense journey into the dirty little secrets of the wealthy. Secrets that prove to be fatal. Secrets that lay hidden in the dark until one NYPD detective shines a light.

Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the wildly best-selling Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki Heat carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City's top homicide squads. She's hit with an unexpected challenge when the commissioner assigns superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook to ride along with her to research an article on New York's Finest. Pulitzer Prize-winning Rook is as much a handful as he is handsome. His wise-cracking and meddling aren't her only problems. As she works to unravel the secrets of the murdered real estate tycoon, she must also confront the spark between them. The one called heat.
