CROSSED BONES (a Sarah Booth Delaney mystery) is on sale for Kindle today for 99 cents. This is book 4 in the series. I read it and enjoyed it. This series is set in modern day Mississippi with a heroine who is trying to save her family plantation. It’s a very, very Southern series (that’s kind of the point). If you like mysteries set in the South, you’ll probably find it charming. Recommended.
Bellwether by Connie Willis is on sale today for $1.99. Ms Willis is a Hugo and Nebula award winning science fiction writer, and this book has an intriguing premise. A woman who studies fads and a man who studies group behavior and chaos theory are brought together seemingly by accident – but is something else at work?
Through October 31, Amazon has a selection of mysteries and thrillers on sale for $1.99 in their Halloween Kindle Book Deals.
The sale includes several of Ed McBain’s 87th precinct novels. This is a legendary police procedural series set in New York City. The titles available include Eighty Million Eyes, He Who Hesitates, Hail to the Chief, and Ax.
The sale also includes several of Leslie Charteris’ books featuring The Saint. These are charming British books written several decades ago, and the Saint is sort of similar to James Bond. I would call them mystery/adventure books. The titles available include The Saint Closes the Case, Featuring the Saint and The Saint’s Getaway.
The sale also includes all three of the books in Alexandra Sokoloff’s Huntress Moon series, including the latest in the series, Cold Moon. The first book is Huntress Moon, and the second is Blood Moon.
If you have Amazon Prime, you can borrow most of the McBain, Charteris and Sokoloff books listed here for free from the Kindle Owners Lending Library.

Recommended.
