Yeah, I bought the short novels and still bought Cannery Row. But that's just me.

The Evening and the Morning is, per its blurb, a (somewhat) recently published prequel to Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth. It's £0.99 at Kindle UK right now.

Quote:
From the bestselling author Ken Follett, The Evening and the Morning is a historical epic that ends where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

A Time of Conflict
It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. The king’s grip on the country is fragile and chaos reigns. A young boat builder dreams of a better future after a devastating Viking raid shatters the life he hoped for.

Lives Intertwined
A Norman noblewoman follows her husband to a new land only to find her life there shockingly different; and a capable monk at Shiring Abbey has a vision of transforming his humble home into a centre of learning admired throughout Europe.

The Dawn of a New Age
Now, with England at the dawn of the Middle Ages, these three people will each come into dangerous conflict with a ruthless bishop, who will do anything to increase his wealth and power, in an epic tale of ambition, rivalry, love and hate.

Thirty years ago we were introduced to Kingsbridge in The Pillars of the Earth, and now in this masterful prequel, international bestseller Ken Follett will take us on a journey into a rich past, which will end where his masterpiece begins.

Six months later, now at £0.99. So if you didn't buy it at £1.99, maybe now's your chance . The links are still good...

Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead is $3 on Amazon.com
It's also in my Overdrive library, so I'll pass.
Quote:
"Ray Carney was only slightly bent when it came to being crooked..." To his customers and neighbors on 125th street, Carney is an upstanding salesman of reasonably priced furniture, making a decent life for himself and his family. He and his wife Elizabeth are expecting their second child, and if her parents on Striver's Row don't approve of him or their cramped apartment across from the subway tracks, it's still home.*

Few people know he descends from a line of uptown hoods and crooks, and that his façade of normalcy has more than a few cracks in it. Cracks that are getting bigger all the time.*

Cash is tight, especially with all those installment-plan sofas, so if his cousin Freddie occasionally drops off the odd ring or necklace, Ray doesn't ask where it comes from. He knows a discreet jeweler downtown who doesn't ask questions, either.*

Then Freddie falls in with a crew who plan to rob the Hotel Theresa—the "Waldorf of Harlem"—and volunteers Ray's services as the fence. The heist doesn't go as planned; they rarely do. Now Ray has a new clientele, one made up of shady cops, vicious local gangsters, two-bit pornographers, and other assorted Harlem lowlifes.*

Thus begins the internal tussle between Ray the striver and Ray the crook. As Ray navigates this double life, he begins to see who actually pulls the strings in Harlem. Can Ray avoid getting killed, save his cousin, and grab his share of the big score, all while maintaining his reputation as the go-to source for all your quality home furniture needs?*

Harlem Shuffle's ingenious story plays out in a beautifully recreated New York City of the early 1960s. It's a family saga masquerading as a crime novel, a hilarious morality play, a social novel about race and power, and ultimately a love letter to Harlem.*

But mostly, it's a joy to read, another dazzling novel from the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning Colson Whitehead.

If you haven't read Simon Scarrow's Cato/Macro series (officially known as the Eagles of the Empire series) yet, and you like historical fiction, you may want to give it a try. And right now, you can do so at a good price in the UK, since an omnibus of the first three titles is £4.99 at Kindle UK. That's only £1.66 each if you need all three.

Eagles of the Empire I, II, and III, contains Under the Eagle, The Eagle's Conquest, and When the Eagle Hunts
Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B086W1TV75
Kindle UK/Smile: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B086W1TV75

And, IMO, the first few of Scarrow's books have some nice mystery elements in them too, which is how I happened to pick them up in the first place, and then I just got hooked on the series...

Quote:
Available together in one ebook volume for the first time, three of Simon Scarrow's action-packed novels of the mighty Roman army. Introducing heroes Macro and Cato - for everyone who loves tales of courage and camaraderie from the days of the Roman Empire

IF YOU DON'T KNOW SIMON SCARROW, YOU DON'T KNOW ROME

Praise for the Eagles of the Empire novels:

'I really don't need this kind of competition... It's a great read' Bernard Cornwell

'Rollicking good fun' Mail on Sunday

'It's Spartacus meets Master and Commander in this rip-roaring, thoroughly entertaining tale of swashbuckling adventure from one of the most exciting writers of historical fiction Scottish Daily Record

UNDER THE EAGLE (Eagles of the Empire I)

AD 42, Germany. New recruit Cato is finding life in the Roman Second Legion brutal. Promoted above his comrades thanks to his connections, he's resented by the other men. He could really use a friend amongst his fellow soldiers right now.

A brave and determined soldier, Cato quickly earns the respect of his Centurion, Macro, a battle-hardened veteran. On a campaign to Britannia - a land of utter barbarity - an enduring friendship begins. But as they battle to thwart a conspiracy against the Emperor the men find themselves in a desperate fight to survive...

THE EAGLE'S CONQUEST (Eagles of the Empire II)

Britannia, AD 43. Britannia is bleak, rainy and full of vicious savages. As right-hand man to Centurion Macro, young soldier Cato battles alongside his commander in bloodier combat than he could ever have imagined.

But the Britons are fighting back with Roman weapons - which means someone in their own ranks is supplying arms to the enemy. Cato and Macro are about to discover even deadlier adversaries than the British barbarians...


WHEN THE EAGLE HUNTS (Eagles of the Empire III)

Britannia, AD 44. Cato and Macro are pawns in Rome's lust to conquer Britain. During the freezing winter, the two men and their legion fight the bloodthirsty natives in hand-to-hand battles that haunt Cato for days afterwards.

But in a place full of enemies, the most vicious are the Druids of the Dark Moon; brutal men who have captured the wife and children of General Plautius. Macro and Cato must travel deep into enemy territory and recover the hostages. The fate of the Roman army depends on the outcome...
