The Gold Deadline is the second in Herbert Resnicow's Norma and Alexander Gold series, which was originally traditionally published back in the 1980s. It is free right now at Kindle US and UK.

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KA3VBQ8
Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gold-Deadli...dp/B01KA3VBQ8/

In addition, the first title, The Gold Solution, is long term at $0.99/£0.99 so if you'd like to read in order, it won't be too expensive to try both together.

Looking at previous posts, it looks as if these bundles of Gail Bowen/Joanne Kilbourn titles seem to go on sale every April, and here they are on sale again. There are two omnibuses that have three titles each, currently price-dropped to $7.99 each, and one omnibus with six titles, currently $8.99. Together these give you the first six titles in the series (the two 3-book ones) and then a short gap, and the 6-book omnibus gives you the 9th through 14th books. Sadly all of the books that are not part of the omnibuses are really expensive ($11.99-ish), and never seem to go on sale.

These links in a previous post are still good, and here are the links for the other omnibus:

The Joanne Kilbourn Mysteries, Volume 1, apa The Early Investigations of Joanne Kilbourn, contains Deadly Appearances, Murder at the Mendel, and The Wandering Soul Murders

The Joanne Kilbourn Mysteries 3-Book Bundle Volume 2 contains: A Colder Kind of Death (which won the 1995 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel), A Killing Spring, and Verdict in Blood. It is $7.99.

The Joanne Kilbourn Mysteries 6-Book Bundle Volume 3 contains: The Last Good Day, The Endless Knot, The Brutal Heart, The Nesting Dolls, Kaleidoscope, and The Gifted. It is $8.99, which works out to only $1.50 per book.

The "Impossible Crime Murder Mystery" novels of James Scott Byrnside are currently on sale for $1.00 each at Amazon US.

Goodnight, Irene
Quote:
A brilliant detective...A baffling murder...An isolated manor...A list of less than perfect suspects with perfect alibis...No way out...It's going to be a long and deadly night.

Hired to stop a murder at a birthday party at a Mississippi Manor cut off from the world by The Great Flood of 1927, Detective Rowan Manory needs to solve a 20-year-old case to save his client, Robert Lasciva, from unwrapping a deadly and perhaps deserved gift of revenge.

The suspects are ready to celebrate. Unfortunately, one of them has plotted an audacious murder. Trapped by the flood, Manory must unmask the killer in the crowd before the bodies start dropping.
The Opening Night Murders
Quote:
Chicago. 1935. The Great Depression has brought America to its knees, and the people are dying for some entertainment. Luckily for them, a murder has been scheduled for opening night at The Red Rising Theater. When the lead actress receives a death threat, Detective Rowan Manory and his partner Walter Williams agree to take the case. Neither realizes the curtain is rising on the deadliest and most vexing mystery of their career. There will be 200 witnesses in the seats and not a single suspect on the stage. Could this be the perfect murder?
The Strange Case of the Barrington Hills Vampire
Quote:
In 1880, a vampire terrorized Barrington Hills, feasting on the locals and leaving their mutilated corpses as evidence. Now, forty years later, it’s happening again.

Detective Rowan Manory and his assistant Walter Williams are hired to investigate. They don’t believe in the undead, but nothing else could explain murders so bloodily impossible. How does the killer walk through walls? Why doesn’t it leave footprints in the snow? Who will it kill next?

Can the detectives solve the case before the vampire strikes again? Can you?

NOTE: These are apparently self-published but, though I have not yet read them myself, they have received very good reviews from several mystery bloggers. (See, for example: http://moonlight-detective.blogspot....ott%20Byrnside or https://theinvisibleevent.com/2020/1...cott-byrnside/ or https://cjcjcountdownjohnschristiejo...cott-byrnside/)

NOTE #2: One of the reviews states that The Opening Night Murders spoils Goodnight, Irene so should be read after that one. The Barrington Hills Vampire, though published third, is actually a prequel to the other two.

I remember reading a few of Janet Dawson's Jeri Howard books back in the 1990s, when they first came out, and I have vague memories of liking them, although I don't remember a lot of details. Still, that was enough for me to notice an omnibus of the first five titles when it popped up in my reading recommendations. And, the omnibus is free at Kindle US and UK right now.

Looking at eReaderIQ, it looks as if it goes free every few months, but never for very long, so grab it now if you want it. It has the first five titles in the series, so if you read the first one and like it, you're in luck - you have four more. There's also a second omnibus of later titles, and it goes free every now and then too, although not as often.

The Jeri Howard Anthology: Books 1-5, contains: Kindred Crimes, Till the Old Men Die, Take a Number, Don't Turn Your Back on the Ocean, and Nobody's Child (apa The Missing Child)

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MMYFWLV
Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MMYFWLV

Quote:
The first five AWARD-WINNING Jeri Howard murder mysteries are now available at an unbelievable bargain!

Tough-as-nails Oakland PI Jeri Howard made a splash in Janet Dawson’s first book, winning Best First PI Novel from the Private Eye Writers of America. The next four mysteries only get more enticing!

“A welcome addition to this tough genre.” -The New York Times Book Review

Dawson’s Oakland is noir and brooding, while Jeri’s as savvy as Sam Spade, with something of Spade’s seen-it-all outlook.

"Jeri combines V.I.'s social conscience with Kinsey's badass attitude and a snappy narrative voice..." -Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post Book World

Readers who tear through offbeat detective novels featuring hard-boiled women sleuths will flip for Jeri Howard, especially if they enjoy Sue Grafton, Robert Dugoni, T.R. Ragan, Marcia Muller, and Sara Paretsky. The first half of this unforgettable series has never been on sale at a price like this!

KINDRED CRIMES
A puzzling missing persons case--a wife who disappears with the grocery money--keeps winding backward, revealing brand new secrets as fast as ancient skeletons can fall out of closets.

TILL THE OLD MEN DIE
The grisly murder of a sedate, widowed history professor, is written off as a random street crime until a woman turns up at his university, claiming to be his widow and demanding access to his "papers."

TAKE A NUMBER
Out of loyalty to a former client, Jeri takes on a nasty divorce case. The soon-to-be ex-husband winds up with a bullet in his back, and the prime suspect is Jeri's client.

DON'T TURN YOUR BACK ON THE OCEAN
Jeri is looking to catch a respite from the PI life to relax and visit family in lovely Monterey on the California coast. Now, what's the worst thing that could happen on a PI's vacation? A dead body on the beach, most likely.

NOBODY'S CHILD
Is a Jane Doe uncovered at a construction site the body of her client's long-lost daughter Maureen? If so, what's become of Maureen's two-year-old daughter?

A few years later, free again at Kindle US and UK...

Link below is still good for Kindle US, and here's the UK link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMBASSADORS...dp/B006E8ZYPI/
