Happy New Year! Death in the Dark e-book and price reductions!

The previously impossible to find Death In The Dark is now available in e-book format for a mere $9.99 and the trade paperback version is now $19.99. What a bargain!

The following books are now available for $15.99 tpb and $7.99 e-book: Paul Halter’s The Phantom Passage, Death Invites You, and The Vampire Tree; and Ulf Durling’s Hard Cheese.

The Derek Smith Omnibus trilogy Whistle Up The Devil, Come To Paddington Fair, and Model For Murder is now available for $24.99 in paperback. The e-book price remains at $9.99 and the prices for the individual novels remain unchanged.

I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2018!


The House That Kills: Kindle Version and Price Cut

With considerable help from my friend Jim Noy at the excellent blog  https://theinvisibleevent.wordpress.com/  there is now a Kindle version of Noel Vindry’s The House That Kills ($7.99). At the same time, I’ve lowered the price on the paperback version to be in line with other older publications ($15.99).


Cherchez les Francais

The Frankfurt Book Fair, which takes place in October is one of the largest and  most prestigious in the world, covered on a daily basis by the top publishing magazines, including Publishers Weekly. PW’s October 12 Frankfurt Show Daily contained an excellent review of the crime scene in France, both classic and contemporary, Cherchez les Francais by Lenny Picker. 2017_10_12 Frankfurt Daily

I wasn’t altogether unhappy that page 1 was almost entirely dedicated to LRI’s classic and Paul Halter offerings, but all kidding aside, there’s some really good stuff here about today’s writers. In fact, as a result of the article, I ordered The Ghost Riders of Ordebec by Fred Vargas, one of France’s best-selling authors (authoress, actually).
