Based on the table of contents in the sample, The Complete Jake Samson Mystery Series Vol 1-6 is pretty much what it says it is - the six titles in the 1980s - 1990s series by Shelley Singer. It is free right now at Kindle US. I remember reading and enjoying a couple of titles in this series way back when. I don't remember much about them, to be sure, but I must have enjoyed them since I still have the DTB . The blurb indicates that this omnibus also includes a dystopian thriller, Torch Song.

All six wonderfully wry and witty Bay Area adventures of Jake Samson and Rosie Vicente in one handy box set—PLUS A BONUS BOOK!

“Singer has a good ear for dialogue among the witless …” -San Francisco Bay Guardian

NICE JEWISH COP TURNS PI...

Ex-Chicago-cop (now unlicensed PI) Jake Samson is living the life of “an urban gentleman farmer” in laid-back Oakland, California, occasionally “handling discreet matters” to keep his cats, Tigris and Euphrates, in kitty treats.

His lesbian BFF, Rosie the carpenter, and her justice-dispensing two-by-four are the perfect complements to his relaxed casual style – no room for macho posturing with this crew! Readers will love their easy, breezy relationship, and wish they had a friend like either one of them.

WHO WILL LIKE Jake and Rosie: Fans of Parnell Hall's Stanley Hastings series, Tony Dunbar's Tubby Dubonnet series, Bill Pronzini's "Nameless" Detective series, Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone series, Susan Dunlap's Jill Smith series, Julie Smith's Rebecca Schwartz series ... and vintage TV series like COLUMBO, THE ROCKFORD FILES, HARRY O, MAGNUM, and HAWAII FIVE-O. Also LGBT fans!

TORCH SONG’s post-apocalyptic kick-ass heroine will particularly appeal to LGBT readers, young adults, and people of all ages who never met a dystopian thriller they didn't love.

SAMSON'S DEAL

When an acquaintance is the primary suspect in his wife’s murder, Jake and Rosie go inside a radical right wing activist group to which the wife is connected. An assortment of Berkeley kooks and interesting plot twists keep things hopping till the very end.

FREE DRAW

Jake’s buddy and quasi-boss calls in a favor when his nephew is accused of murder. It's up to Jake and Rosie to find the real killer, and they've got a number of suspects: the victim's fellow executives at a questionable correspondence school, his divided and bitter family, and his quirky Marin County neighbors--a truly odd assortment of California woods dwellers.

FULL HOUSE

An ark in the middle of suburban Oakland is interesting but not strange by California standards. Even one built by peaceful cultists preparing for the coming flood. Until sometime private eye Jake Samson is hired to find Noah, their leader, who has disappeared with a lovely devotee and a quarter million in cash. The cult suspects foul play, but the police aren’t convinced.

SPIT IN THE OCEAN

The North Coast Sperm Bank in tiny Wheeler, California has been knocked over, and the perp’s tossed its assets in the ocean, leaving a religious-nut note of explanation. Just a prank, says Wheeler law enforcement. But the bank hires Jake Samson and his ever-sharp Watson, Rosie Vicente to find out who made the unauthorized withdrawal. As a storm brutalizes Wheeler, a bank employee slips in the mud and falls to her death.

SUICIDE KING

Jake's never been a big fan of politics, but Rosie invites him to a posh California fundraiser for an energetic gubernatorial candidate of the liberal underdog Vivo party, and Jake can't resist. It's all fun and political games until the candidate’s aide finds her boss in her backyard, hanging naked from an acacia tree. The police rule the death a suicide, but Jake and the aide suspect foul play, and she hires Jake to find the culprit. He finds campaign shenanigans, affairs, a possible German mafia connection, and more danger than our hero could possibly have imagined.

ROYAL FLUSH

Laid-back, unlicensed PI Jake Samson is understandably nervous about infiltrating a local Marin County neo-Nazi group called the Aryan Command.

Stray Shot is the 13th in the Keith Calder series by Gerald Hammond. It is free right now at Kindle US and Kindle UK.

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Stray-Shot-Ke...dp/B07JCCZ54S/
Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stray-Shot-...dp/B07JCCZ54S/

Quote:
In Stray Shot, the latest installment in this popular series, Simon joins forces with Calder, as the two investigate a dognapping that rapidly turns ugly.

When Simon’s dog is stolen during a hunt, and another disappears on the same day, at first it seems just a freak incident; but when one dog reappears, only to be stolen again—along with some samples of a revolutionary new shotgun cartridge—it becomes clear that something more foul is afoot.

As Simon traces the scent across the Atlantic, and dognapping turns to murder, Keith Calder finds himself embroiled in a mystery that takes all his wits, and those of Simon as well, to solve.

Something made me start clicking through the Kobo summer beach sale, and I spotted two or three mystery series that are new to me that look interesting, but are sadly at sale price points ($2.99 and up, a little less with VIP) that I need to think about a bit. But I thought I'd post anyway, since each of them looked kind of interesting.


The first (and only) three titles in Steph Cha's Jennifer Song series - of interest to me because they are set in LA (where I live) and the heroine sounds engaging - all on sale at $2.99 each at both Kindle and Kobo US

Dead Soon Enough
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Dead-Soon-Eno...dp/B00SET2W5A/
Kobo US: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/dead-soon-enough


For something completely different, the first title in Dianne Freeman's Frances Wynn, Countess of Harleigh series, which, per SYKM, won the 2018 Agatha Award for Best First Novel, the 2019 Lefty Award for Best Debut Mystery, and was a finalist for the 2019 Mary Higgins Clark Award; sadly the just-released second title is $12.99 at Kindle US, and even more at Kobo US, so hopefully I don't buy and read this one too soon and like it a lot...

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Etiquette-Mur...dp/B07638LZZB/

and more...

The two titles in the Frank Yakabuski series by Ron Corbett are $3.99 each at Kobo (coupon/VIPable), but at Kindle US the first one is $1.99 and the second one is not on sale, or at least not much on sale, at $8.99. So I think I might try the first one from Kindle, and then if I like it, put a watch on the other one at eReaderIQ. Per SYKM, each of these was a finalist for one award.

Cape Diamond

The two titles currently available (third one is coming in September) in Dave Butler's Jenny Willson series are $2.99 each at Kobo (coupon/VIPable) and $2.51 each at Kindle US. Per SYKM, the first title won a 2018 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.
