Murder on the Old Road is the seventh in the Marsh and Daughter series by Amy Myers. It is a Countdown deal in both the US and UK right now, at $0.99/£0.99 for five more days and a bit.

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0876ZNDX8
Kindle US/Smile: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0876ZNDX8

Quote:
When Georgia and Peter Marsh encounter a group of weirdly dressed ‘pilgrims’ about to set out along the Old Road to Canterbury, it is clear that more is at stake than the play the Chillingham Drama Group is shortly to perform.

Ostensibly, it is to be a re-enactment of a similar pilgrimage and production over forty years earlier. But that event ended in the murder of Hugh Wayncroft, the gentle owner of the local manor house, a slaying that has never been solved.

Determined to discover the killer, Marsh & Daughter set out on a dangerous journey: one that could provide the solution not only to Chillingham’s problems, but to their own.


ADD: And I just noticed that the first title in this series, The Wickenham Murders, is free again right now, if you want to try before you buy! Info and links in this previous post. It wasn't free for long last time, so grab it if you want it.

Three in Death By J. D. Robb $1.99 Amazon, Kobo and B&N
These are popular stories, but not part of the In Death COLLECTION omnibus'.

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Three-Death-J...al-text&sr=1-1
Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/three-in-death

Three books in one volume:
INTERLUDE IN DEATH

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is resigned to the fact that she’s been ordered to give a seminar at a police conference—and that she’ll have to leave Earth to do it. But her dedication to her job only goes so far. And when a legendary commander sets his sights on taking her husband, Roarke down, Eve will do everything in her power to stop him…

MIDNIGHT IN DEATH

Eve’s name has made a Christmas list, but it’s not for being naughty or nice. It’s for putting a serial killer behind bars. Now the escaped madman is dogging her steps. With Roarke at her side, Eve must stop the man from exacting his bloody vengeance—or die trying…

HAUNTED IN DEATH

At the scene of a murder, Eve uncovers the remains of beautiful singer who went missing eighty-five years earlier. Both victims were shot with the same gun, in a building rumored to be haunted by the singer’s ghost. But Eve focuses her attention on those in the here-and-now who had a bone to pick with the dead…

Mortal Stakes is the third in the Spenser series by Robert B. Parker. It has dropped to $2.99 at Kindle and Kobo US.

Quote:
Everybody loves a winner, and the Rabbs are major league. Marty is the Red Sox star pitcher, Linda the loving wife. She loves everyone except the blackmailer out to wreck her life.

Is Marty throwing fast balls or throwing games? It doesn't take long for Spenser to link Marty's performance with Linda's past...or to find himself trapped between a crazed racketeer and an enforcer toting an M-16.

America's favorite pastime has suddenly become a very dangerous sport, and one wrong move means strike three, with Spenser out for good!

All 16 of the titles in this series are back at $0.99 again, including the last four, which weren't on sale before. The link below picks them all up now. Or, if you prefer a Smile link, here's that one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...kindle_edition

I only spot checked, but these appear to be on Kindle Countdown for about the next 5 days.

Also most/all of the titles in the series are either £0.99 or £1.99, but the series link doesn't pick them all up. I'm short on time and don't have time to do new links (sorry), but just go search if you want the UK versions...

I'm providing a link to the "series" webpage at Kindle US, which only includes the first 12 titles, now published in e-book by Endeavour Media, and not any of the later titles in the series (another publisher). But, none of those are $0.99 anyway.

You can just take a look yourself and pick out any that you might want. (You may need to click on "show all" at the bottom of the page to see all 12.)

As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust is the seventh in the excellent IMO Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley. It has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US. I've enjoyed all of the titles I've read in this series, which is most of them.

Quote:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Flavia de Luce—“part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” (The New York Times Book Review)—takes her remarkable sleuthing prowess to the unexpectedly unsavory world of Canadian boarding schools in this captivating mystery.

BONUS: This edition includes “The Curious Case of the Copper Corpse: A Flavia de Luce Story.”

Banished! is how twelve-year-old Flavia de Luce laments her predicament, when her father and Aunt Felicity ship her off to Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy, the boarding school that her mother, Harriet, once attended across the sea in Canada. The sun has not yet risen on Flavia’s first day in captivity when a gift lands at her feet. Flavia being Flavia, a budding chemist and sleuth, that gift is a charred and mummified body, which tumbles out of a bedroom chimney. Now, while attending classes, making friends (and enemies), and assessing the school’s stern headmistress and faculty (one of whom is an acquitted murderess), Flavia is on the hunt for the victim’s identity and time of death, as well as suspects, motives, and means. Rumors swirl that Miss Bodycote’s is haunted, and that several girls have disappeared without a trace. When it comes to solving multiple mysteries, Flavia is up to the task—but her true destiny has yet to be revealed.

Touchstone is the first in the short two-book Stuyvesant & Grey series by Laurie R. King. It has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle US, not at Kobo US as of now. I've read and really enjoyed King's Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series, but haven't tried either of the books in this series, so it's nice to see it on sale. OTOH, I must say that the blurb doesn't do much for me, so I'm going entirely on my fondness for King's other books...

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Touchstone-St...dp/B000W96882/

Quote:
Hailed for her rich and powerful works of psychological suspense as well as her New York Times bestselling mysteries, Laurie R. King now takes us to a remote cottage in Cornwall where a gripping tale of intrigue, terrorism, and explosive passions begins with a visit to a recluse upon whom the fate of an entire nation may rest—a man code-named . . .

It’s eight years after the Great War shattered Bennett Grey’s life, leaving him with an excruciating sensitivity to the potential of human violence, and making social contact all but impossible. Once studied by British intelligence for his unique abilities, Grey has withdrawn from a rapidly changing world—until an American Bureau of Investigation agent comes to investigate for himself Grey’s potential as a weapon in a vicious new kind of warfare. Agent Harris Stuyvesant desperately needs Grey’s help entering a world where the rich and the radical exist side by side—a heady mix of the powerful and the celebrated, among whom lurks an enemy ready to strike a deadly blow at democracy on both sides of the Atlantic.

Here, among a titled family whose servants dress in whimsical costumes and whose daughter conducts an open affair with a man who wants to bring down the government, Stuyvesant finds himself dangerously seduced by one woman and—even more dangerously—falling in love with another. And as he sifts through secrets divulged and kept, he uncovers the target of a horrifying conspiracy, and wonders if he can trust his touchstone, Grey, to reveal the most dangerous player of all ….

Building to an astounding climax on an ancient English estate, Touchstone is both a harrowing thriller by a master of the genre and a thought-provoking exploration of the forces that drive history—and human destinies.
