The Snack Thief is the third in the excellent IMO Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri. It has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US. This title is also included in an omnibus, Death in Sicily, that was on sale a few years ago, so check carefully before you buy!

Quote:
“The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily.” —Donna Leon

When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Montalbano, with his keen insight into human nature, suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and sometime prostitute, whose young son steals other schoolchildren's midmorning snacks. But Karima disappears, and the young snack thief's life—as well as Montalbano's—is endangered, the Inspector exposes a viper's next of government corruption and international intrigue.

Clinch by Martin Holmén is $1.99 at Amazon US.

Quote:
Dashiell Hammett meets Raymond Chandler in this ultra-gritty piece of contemporary Swedish noir, set in a decrepit, highly atmospheric 1930s Stockholm

The writing's on the wall for Harry Kvist. Once a notorious boxer, he now spends his days drinking, and his nights chasing debts amongst the pimps, prostitutes and petty thieves of 1930s Stockholm. When women can't satisfy him, men can. But one biting winter's night he pays a threatening visit to a debtor named Zetterberg, and when the man is found dead shortly afterwards, all eyes are on Kvist.

Determined to avoid yet another stint in prison, Kvist sets out to track down the only person who can clear his name. His hunt will lead him from the city's slums, gangster hideouts and gambling dens to its most opulent hotels and elite nightclubs. It will bring him face to face with bootleggers and whores, aristocrats and murderers. It will be the biggest fight of his life.

Blending noir with gritty violence, Clinch is a visceral, compulsive thriller that packs a punch and leaves you reeling.

THREE mystery/thrillers by Felix Francis are £1.99 each at Amazon UK today.

Gamble, Refusal and Damage are the first, third and fourth solo books by Felix Francis, son (and co-author with) Dick Francis. They are usually £3.99 each.


(Why is the second one still £3.99? No idea.)

So I almost fell off my chair today when I saw that the fourth title in this series, Murder À La Mode, had dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US, and it's coupon/VIPable at Kobo US. It's not on sale in the UK, at least as of now. This is one of my favorite of the titles in this series, along with The Curious Affair of the Third Dog, Murder Fantastical, and Twice in a Blue Moon. (But I really like almost all of them...)

I'm a little bit bummed, because I've been slowly working my way through picking up these titles with my Kobo points, and I've already got this one, but also a little bit hopeful - I would love to see more titles in this series go on sale in the future. (And also titles by some other F&M press authors...so fingers crossed...)

Another 1.99 Tibbett today, #1 Dead Men Don't Ski. I've been buying them as they come along, with Kobo points or else at full price. I don't want F&M to give up before they get to the end of the series. #18 is showing a release date of tomorrow, although Amazon only shows the paperback version so far. The F&M site just shows it as coming soon but it also shows #17 as coming soon and it's been out for a few weeks now.

I hope I still like them. I've put off rereading until I get them all, which will hopefully be in my lifetime. There's only #19 left and it isn't showing anywhere yet. They started off so well, the first dozen in 2018, then just four in 2019, and presumably just two this year (understandably). I remember when I was buying the Henry Gamadge books by Elizabeth Daly the same thing happened -- a whole bunch the first year and then three more years for the last few. I was reduced to begging for the last one and she actually let me buy it a bit early.

Darn! Another one that I already have, since I've been picking them up in series order with my Kobo points. Still, I think I may now pause, and wait and see if some of the ones I still need go on sale in the not-too-distant future. Maybe Felony & Mayhem is going to start having more reasonable sale prices on some of their titles - that would be nice! And as far as still liking the series a second time through, I have, with just the same couple of titles that I wasn't super-fond of in the DTB days, I'm still not super-fond of now .

As far as hoping all of a series gets issued in e-book - I hear you! I am hugely fond of Marvin Albert's long-out-of-print Stone Angel series, whose rights were eventually picked up by Wildside Press. Wildside Press put out the first seven of nine fairly promptly between mid-2015 and early 2017, and then went silent on the last two. I e-mailed Wildside a few times (also begging), and John Betancourt there always responded politely, and said they were still coming. But it took until 2019 for the eighth one to come out, and I still have my fingers crossed for the ninth and last one. I've actually been thinking about volunteering to help with production, or proof-reading, or anything else that would be helpful !

The Missing Corpse is the fourth in Jean-Luc Bannalec's Brittany series. It has dropped to £0.94 at Kindle UK, the first time I've seen it on sale. And titles in this series tend to be pretty expensive when not on sale. I've read and enjoyed several titles in this series. (Full disclosure - I tend to be a push-over for mysteries set in France...)

Along the picturesque Belon River, home of the world famous oyster beds, between steep cliffs, ominous forests and the Atlantic Ocean, a stubborn elderly film actress discovers a corpse. By the time Commissaire Dupin arrives at the scene, the body has disappeared. A little while later, he receives a phone call from the mystical hills of Monts d'Arree, where legends of fairies and the devil abound: another unidentified body has turned up. Dupin quickly realizes this may be his most difficult and confounding case yet, with links to celtic myths, a sand theft operation, and mysterious ancient druid cults.

This is a pretty good price for a most-recent-in-series. It's matched at Kobo US.
