A number of mysteries are part of today's US Kindle Daily Deal, some new-ish, some old, all at $2.99 each, none matched at Kobo US, at least as of now

A Fatal Grace is the 2nd in Louise Penny's awesome Chief Inspector Gamache series. If you've somehow missed this series, here's a chance to pick up an early title on sale!
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Fatal-Grace-I...dp/B0011UGLRY/

Death in St. Petersburg is the 12th in Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily series. This was on sale last month too, so check carefully before you buy.
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Death-St-Pete...dp/B06XWF7C35/

The Day is Dark is the fourth in Yrsa Sigurðardóttir's Thóra Gudmundsdottir series. I've read and enjoyed all of the books in this series over the years.
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Day-Dark-Thri...dp/B008BU71FI/

The Company She Kept is the 26th in the Joe Gunther series by Archer Mayor. I've read and enjoyed all of the titles up to about half-way through this series - some in DTB, and then also several where the rights appear to have reverted and reasonably priced e-book editions exist. It's sort of rare for later titles in this series to drop in price, though, so I'm happy to see this one.
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Company-She-K...dp/B00V35U1YQ/

Three titles from Macmillan authors I don't recognize...

A Season to Lie, second in the Gemma Monroe series by Emily Littlejohn
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Season-Lie-De...dp/B072DTQQJV/

Swiss Vendetta, first in the Agnes Luthi series by Tracee de Hahn
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Swiss-Vendett...dp/B01IA6NW96/

Almost Midnight, 10th in the Mike Bowditch series by Paul Doiron
Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/Almost-Midnig...dp/B07J4W75YK/

I had (missed it) and I did (pick it up). The sample reads very well, so I'll engage in a new series. Thanks!

I discovered this series Fall 2018 and just binge-read through all 13.5 of them (at the time, there's now 2 more). After a few books into the series, I was finishing one every day or two. Now I sadly have to wait for each new release, which I always pre-order. It's one of those series of books I wish never ended.

I'm fortunate that my library has this series. I find them unlike any other mystery series I've read and I do recommend them.

You will want to read these books in series order. There are ongoing character issues and such that make more sense if you read in order, and you could be spoilered if you read a later book before an earlier one.

Oh -- well, book #1 seems to be at $2.99 also, so I'll do as you suggest!

Oh good, I'm always just a bit nervous when I go out on a limb with such a strong recommendation, nice to know a few other folks agree. (My absolute most favorite series, Sarah Caudwell's short 4-book Hilary Tamar series generates about equal raves and boos. with almost no one in the middle...)

Also, BTW, apparently the critics agree...I've rarely, if ever, seen such a list of awards and nominations for every book in a series - see the thumbnail

Adding my voice to the chorus of positive recommendations for this series I’m listening to it on audio and have adored it so far only 3 or 4 into the series

If you missed it at $0.99, Troubled Bones has now dropped to $1.99 at Kindle US - link below is still good.

In addition, and really the reason I posted...the third in this series, The Demon's Parchment, has also dropped to $1.99 at Kindle US.

Quote:
The Tracker pursues mystical documents said to conjure demons while hunting for a monstrous killer in this medieval mystery with “an appealing noirish air” (Booklist).

Since losing his knighthood, Crispin Guest has reinvented himself as an investigator for hire known as the Tracker. But his reputation will once again be put to the test with his latest case. Jacob of Provençal, a Jewish physician at the king’s court, is missing a set of documents that he claims contain the power to bring forth a dangerous demon.

Meanwhile, it seems a monster has already been unleashed on the city. Vulnerable street children are being abducted and murdered, their mutilated bodies the only clues left behind. With the help of his orphaned servant, Jack, it is up to Crispin to unravel the grim tangle of mystery and murder.

This third installment of the Crispin Guest Medieval mysteries was nominated for a Romantic Times Award and was a finalist for the Macavity Award.

Just to help the moderator out, since this might appear self-pub for those not familiar with historical mystery authors/series, a single click on the "hardcover" button and paging down shows it to have been originally traditionally published before, presumably, the rights reverted to the author for this edition. In addition, SYKM indicates it was a finalist for Agatha, Bruce Alexander and Macavity awards. Hopefully this is enough evidence that it's worthy to post.

Bones has dropped to $0.99 at Kindle US.

Constable Goes to Market is about 3/4 of the way through the lengthy Constable Nick series by Nicholas Rhea (pen name for Peter Walker). It is a Kindle Countdown deal in both the US and UK ($0.99 and £0.99, respectively), ending in a little more than 4 days.

Quote:
Market days in Ashfordly attract villagers from all over North Yorkshire. The spot to be for social outings, shopping, and business, the usually peaceful town springs to life. But new people and excited gatherings can only mean one thing for Constable Nick: more problems.

From a dog intent on demolishing market stalls to a live hand grenade found in a potato display, PC Nick has no shortage of small-town crises and eccentric characters to attend to. Linguistic misunderstandings, a spot of crime, and even a UFO sighting are all in a day’s work in Constable Goes to Market.

Nicholas Rhea’s delightful Constable tales paint an endearing and hilarious picture of police work in the British countryside and was the inspiration for the Heartbeat TV series.
