It was the on-demand aspect I meant to invoke, even though the app isn't as good.

Did I miss a nomination? I see one so far for Highsmith. Or did you mean Hansen?

Oddly enough, Overdrive offers the e-books for all four titles in the series, even though Amazon and Kobo sell only the last two. Weird.
That is truly odd - it makes it seem as if it's not a rights problem, but some sort of glitch at the retailers. And since Caudwell/Cockburn has passed away, I don't know if anyone would be paying any attention. Oh well...I ended up picking up the ones not available in the US from the UK, so no biggie for me, but I know some folks don't want/like to travel.

In any case, if all the nominations aren't used up, here are links:

Kindle US, $7.99: https://www.amazon.com/Sirens-Sang-M...dp/B002OFVO0E/
Kobo US, $7.99: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the...ng-of-murder-1
Kindle UK, £3.99: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sirens-Sang...dp/B009NESAEW/
Kobo UK, £3.99: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/the...ng-of-murder-1

If all the nominations are used up, I'll nominate it again some other time when it fits the theme.

Yep...

Oops, I thought it was on the list of things with 2 nods. Well, I'll be the second then.

I’m reading the Feb. book now, and just lurking in this thread to see the nomination process in action. It feels like an auction, and my TBR list is growing - fun!

Feel free to hop in and give a second or third to those needing it. You can have three votes.

Yes, that's often how I feel after the nomination process. My TBR usually climbs by at least 3 or 4 books, even before the vote.

FWIW given availability issues, I'm still going to second The Englishman's Cameo, since it sounds so exactly my sort of thing - historical mystery with great background in unusual place/time - not that I don't love ancient Rome, or ancient Egypt, or ancient England, but nice to have a bit of change from time to time.

And worth noting that not only is it cheap in the UK per @issybird, but there is an omnibus of three titles in the series for the same price (£3.99) as this one individually: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Muzaffar-Ja...dp/B00CXUERAY/ . Which, of course, I have just now bought, adding again, as others have mentioned, to my already huge TBR pile.

And, just for fun, since it says it's pub by Hachette India, I took a look in the Kobo India store and Cameo is Rs 224, which my friendly currency converter says is about US $3.12 - also pretty cheap, and less than the £3.99 in the UK. Sadly the omnibus is Rs 433 (about US $6.05) though, so if you want that, you're still better off in the UK. Link for Cameo (make sure you are in the India store): https://www.kobo.com/in/en/ebook/the-englishman-s-cameo

Thanks for the feedback. We should tweak the FAQ. Sometimes you're so used to how things go that you don't realize what is missing or unclear. Sorry about that!

So you've got three nominations to squander this month if you'd like; they're good until 7 AM EST tomorrow after which the poll will go up.

Great. I’ll third “The Sirens Sang of Murder”. It sounds like a good laugh.
