The Duke's Gambit by Tracy/Teresa Grant is a recent (2018) title in the Charles and Mélanie Fraser/Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch series, which confusingly started with the Frasers, then due to publisher issues continued with the same characters, but renamed as the Rannochs. And to make matters worse, the titles aren't written/published in much of a chronological order, so a "new" title may go back and fill in a gap somewhere earlier in the story arc. In spite of all the confusion, I've read and liked most of the titles in this series, even if I have had a bit of whiplash from time to time. There's more info and a rough chronology of some of the beginning of the series at Grant's website: https://tracygrant.wordpress.com/faq/

In any case, wherever it fits in the series, Gambit has dropped to $0.99 at Kindle US.

Quote:
A Malcolm & Suzanne Rannoch Historical Mystery 15

Former spies Malcolm and Mélanie Suzanne Rannoch return to Dunmykel Castle in Scotland in response to a secret summons from Malcolm's grandfather, the Duke of Strathdon. The duke has a plan that will allow the Rannochs to resume their former life in Britain. Malcolm, worried that Mélanie could face treason charges for her past as a French spy, wants nothing more than to take his family safely back to Italy. But when Malcolm's sister Gisèle disappears from Dunmykel, Malcolm instead find himself doing the one thing he didn't want to do—risking a return to London in search of his missing sister.

Meanwhile in Scotland, Mélanie uncovers information that connects her own shadowy past with Gisèle's disappearance, which sends Mélanie off on a quest of her own. As they unravel the tangled threads, Malcolm and Mélanie learn Gisèle's disappearance is part of a dangerous game involving two old enemies and the highest reaches of Britain's government. The stakes rise still higher when one of their enemies is arrested for murder. From snowy Scotland to glittering Mayfair drawing rooms and the stews of St. Giles, the Rannochs unearth a conspiracy that could topple kings—and shake their family to the core…

"Shimmers like the finest salons in Vienna." —Deborah Crombie

"Meticulous, delightful, and full of surprises." —Tasha Alexander

"Glittering balls, deadly intrigue, sexual scandals. . .the next best thing to actually being there!"— Lauren Willig

"A superb storyteller."— Deanna Raybourn

Poseidon's Gold is the fifth in the Marcus Didius Falco series by Lindsey Davis. It has dropped to £0.99 at Kindle UK.

Quote:
One of the stories from the bestselling historical fiction Falco series.

Rome AD 72. Marcus Didius Falco returns home from a six-month mission to the German legions. But trouble is in store for him: his apartment has been wrecked by squatters and an ex-legionary friend of his colourfully heroic brother Festus is demanding money, allegedly owed him as the result of one of Festus's wild schemes. Worse still, the only client Falco can get is his mother - who wants him to clear the family name.

Then just as Falco thinks things can only get better, fate takes a turn for the worse... The legionary is found viciously stabbed to death with Falco the prime suspect. Now he has only three days to prove he is not a murderer, to trace the real suspect, amass evidence and win a fortune...

Speaks the Nightbird (Matthew Corbett #1) by Robert R. McCammon is $1.99 again at most retailers. GR 4.12.

I really enjoyed this one and gave it four stars.

Checking to see if there were any more price drops in that series (the second half - I have books 1-10) I noticed the pre-order of A Capitol Death (Flavia Albia book 7) has been posted for next April:

The Violet Hour is a non-series thriller-ish looking title (it says "Thriller" on the cover ) by Daniel Judson. It is free right now at Kindle US.

link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077GBTPKS

Spoiler:
Quote:
The only surviving son of a small-time career criminal, Cal Rakowski is a young man intent on living an uneventful life. A natural problem-solver, he earns good money as an off-the-books auto mechanic, working side-by-side with his friend Lebell in a Bridgehampton garage owned by a wealthy businessman named Eric Carver. But Cal’s idyllic existence is turned upside down when dark forces target the pregnant friend he is sheltering. And when his two closest friends are revealed to be more than what they claim, Cal’s innate survival skills are put to the test. Forced to do battle with a sudden onslaught of enemies that include a brutal thug, an abusive and powerful ex-husband, and a well-funded female assassin seeking her own personal redemption, Cal’s only hope is the darkness that has always dwelled within him—a darkness he must now unleash if he is to save the one life he has sworn to protect. Set over the course of three days—Mischief Night, Halloween, and the Day of the Dead—The Violet Hour is a powerful and unrelenting thriller in the tradition of such classics as The Postman Always Rings Twice and Marathon Man.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and sequels are on offer in the UK, just £0.99 each, except for the newest one.

I highly recommend the first three. I wouldn't recommend the fourth (which I have read), as it's by a different author and not half as good as the originals.

PS the middle of each of these links is actually the USA one. The link is fine; the text is all that's wrong. Thanks, I checked and already had all 3 of these. Someday I'll try reading one, to find whether I actually like them!

That really needs to be the official GR New Year's resolution for 2019. Except most of us haven't got #1

Thanks for pointing out the link problem - now fixed!

Yeah, I don't have #1 either. If I ever get low on the rest of my TBR list (hah!!) or just in need of a change, I would still start on #2.
