I'm with you here. If it's not picked, maybe we can read it together

Thought I'd nominate something that I haven't read, by authors I haven't read but would like to try:

The Relic, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Quote:
In and around a fictionalized version of New York City's American Museum of Natural History, a few select characters must solve a string of brutal murders that take place inside the museum during the days preceding the opening of "Superstition", a spectacular blockbuster exhibition.

Evidence begins to point suspiciously to a doomed expedition undertaken by the museum several years earlier to the Brazilian rainforest in search of the lost Kothoga tribe. It becomes apparent that behind the murders is Mbwun (translation: "He Who Walks On All Fours")—the Kothoga's crazed lizard god, whose father happens to be a demon analogous to Satan, according to Kothoga legend. A relic depicting Mbwun is to be shown for the first time at the upcoming exhibition.

It also appears that several museum leaders had known about previous murders on the museum's premises and that they had conspired to keep these murders a secret so as not to damage the reputation of the museum.
Voted #64 in the NPR audience-nominated top 100 "Killer Thrillers" poll.

Amazon US / Amazon UK / Amazon Aus

Nomination 1: From the Golden Age of British Mysteries: The Tiger in the Smoke by Margery Allingham.
The Tiger in the Smoke is not available as an ebook in the US, although a few of the Campion series are now or will soon be available. The Crime at Black Dudley, #1 in the Albert Campion series, will be released May 6. Amazon US Kobo

Several of Allingham's titles are couponable at Kobo. I read many, maybe all, of this series many years ago and loved it.

Audible has the audiobook for $25.41, but that's a lot of money. They also have the abridged version for $13.08, but who wants an abridged version?

I'm seeing The Tiger in the Smoke available on Kobo in Canada, for $12.74. Which tells me it's couponable. Just take a quick trip up to visit our friendly country.

well, join as a Trial Member, and drop it after a month.

But even though I was willing to third the nomination, I think the problems with acquisition will end up ruling this excellent book out. Too bad.
