The link is from a post over two years old, so it's not too surprising. The current sale she linked to is at Amazon UK.

The box set is on sale in the UK, not in the US - that is what the first line of the post says.

I included the quote just for the description of the box set.

The Bear Wagon is the 7th in the Stephen Attebrook series by Jason Vail, and is free right now at Kindle US. I'm not sure about Hawk Publishing as a self-pub or not, but I have read the first six titles in the series, and enjoyed them - not in my top ten series, but enjoyed them. So I'm happy to see Wagon available for free.

Quote:
The war that England had feared for months begins during the summer of 1263 not with a clash of great armies, but with little spasms of violence across the land as small bodies of troops loyal to the barons gathering around Simon de Montfort and King Henry III attack their foes here and there about the country.

Even such a minor family as the Attebrooks of Hafton Manor cannot avoid being drawn in, as Stephen Attebrook’s elder brother, William, takes part in an assault on a castle held by the Bishop of Hereford, one of the King’s staunch supporters.

But the coming war is the last thing on Stephen’s mind that June. For a dead girl whom no one can identify is found floating in the River Teme at the Dinham mill, drowned under circumstances that only the most addle-witted could think was anything but murder.

There is no time, however, for Stephen and his friend Gilbert Wistwode to devote to the fate of that poor girl, for an even more pressing dilemma is forced upon them — unknown ruffians traveling with a bear wagon have kidnapped Stephen’s niece, Ida, William’s daughter.

Despite the bad blood between the two brothers, William seeks Stephen’s assistance it finding Ida. And so begins the desperate pursuit of the bear wagon across England, reaching to the depths of London itself and far into Norfolk, as Stephen races to find Ida before she meets a fate worse than murder. “The Bear Wagon” is the story of Stephen’s most complex and dangerous adventure yet.

Sorry, my post just complicated things! I understood that the sale is in the UK. I actually clicked on the US link as a fast way of verifying that I had already bought the set, but I found a 404 Dog of Amazon instead. The US price was intended as a PSA for anyone who might have wanted to check it.

For some reason, I can't follow links into the UK site any more

School Days is the 33rd in the Spenser series by Robert B. Parker. It has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US. Parker's titles don't go on sale very often, in the US at least, so nice to see this one.

A horrifying school shooting draws Boston PI Spenser into a harrowing investigation in this thriller by New York Times bestselling author Robert B. Parker.

When a Massachusetts boy is accused of mass murder, his socially prominent grandmother is convinced of his innocence and is willing to fight for him. But based on the boy’s resigned attitude and the evidence stacked against him, Spenser isn’t convinced of anything—except that there’s trouble ahead...

A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax is the fourth in the Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman. I read and enjoyed this series back in DTB days, and although it's pretty cozy, it's also, IMO, a lot of fun. Gilman's books don't go on sale very often so it's nice to see this one drop to $2.99 at Kindle and Kobo US.

Quote:
“Mrs. Pollifax gives Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple a rival to reckon with.”—Toronto Star

“What we are looking for—aside from the stolen Plutonium, Mrs. Pollifax—is evil in its purest form.”

Mrs. Pollifax was leading a very full life: Garden Club, karate, yoga—and a little spying now and then.

This time the mysterious Mr. Carstairs sent her to Switzerland—to a famous health resort where the world’s intelligence agents had gathered.

The mission: to track down a missing package of plutonium. Just enough to make a small atom bomb.

It was a job that suited Mrs. Pollifax’s talents. She was good with people—and good at sniffing out their secrets.

But it was not until she became enchanted with Robin, the young jewel thief, that her new adventure really began. . . .

I really enjoyed the first few books in this series, but the later books do get extremely "political", with overt rants against various countries, which I found very off-putting. When you get to those books in the series (and I don't recall off-hand when they started getting that way) I'd suggest stopping reading them. The early books are very enjoyable, though!
