Old Gold by Jay Stringer

An Eoin Miller Mystery (1st in series)

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer

Kindle Daily Deal Price: 99¢

Old Gold by Jay Stringer, Amazon Kindle format

Half-gypsy detective Eoin Miller finds people for a living — usually people who would do anything to remain hidden. Ironic considering Eoin has done all he can to lose himself in a downward spiral that has cost him his job, his respect, his wife, and anything else that ever mattered. But he's not inclined to dwell on what he's given up, and Eoin prefers it that way.

Then he meets Mary, a hard-drinking woman on the run who confides that she's stolen a valuable item, one that certain people would kill to get back. The two of them seek a temporary — and incomplete — solace in each other's arms, only for Mary to turn up as a corpse in Eoin's bed the next morning, him asleep on the sofa.

Recalling his father's aversion to authority, Eoin runs from the body, but he hates a mystery and is driven to discover the truth behind Mary's murder, even if it means putting his own life on the line. Before long, Eoin's tangled up in a ferocious turf war that has him playing his former allies and employers — crime lords, drug dealers, cops, and politicians — against each other.

A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny, Amazon Kindle formatA Fatal Grace by Louise Penny, Kobo format

Welcome to winter in Three Pines, a picturesque village in Quebec, where the villagers are preparing for a traditional country Christmas, and someone is preparing for murder.

No one liked CC de Poitiers. Not her quiet husband, not her spineless lover, not her pathetic daughter — and certainly none of the residents of Three Pines. CC de Poitiers managed to alienate everyone, right up until the moment of her death.

When Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Sûreté du Quebec, is called to investigate, he quickly realizes he's dealing with someone quite extraordinary. CC de Poitiers was electrocuted in the middle of a frozen lake, in front of the entire village, as she watched the annual curling tournament. And yet no one saw anything. Who could have been insane enough to try such a macabre method of murder — or brilliant enough to succeed?

With his trademark compassion and courage, Gamache digs beneath the idyllic surface of village life to find the dangerous secrets long buried there. For a Quebec winter is not only staggeringly beautiful but deadly, and the people of Three Pines know better than to reveal too much of themselves. But other dangers are becoming clear to Gamache. As a bitter wind blows into the village, something even more chilling is coming for Gamache himself.

A Novel of Suspense

Audible Daily Deal Price: $2.95

Write To Die by Charles Rosenberg, Amazon Kindle format

Hollywood's latest blockbuster is all set to premiere — until a faded superstar claims the script was stolen from her. To defend the studio, in steps the Harold Firm, one of Los Angeles's top entertainment litigation firms and as much a part of the glamorous scene as the studios themselves. As a newly minted partner, it's Rory Calburton's case, and his career, to win or lose.

But the seemingly tame civil trial turns lethal when Rory stumbles upon the strangled body of his client's general counsel. And the ties that bind in Hollywood constrict even tighter when the founder of the Harold Firm is implicated in the murder. Rory is certain the plagiarism and murder cases are somehow connected, and with the help of new associate Sarah Gold — who's just finished clerking for the chief justice — he's determined to get answers. Will finding out who really wrote the script lead them to the mastermind of the real-life murder?
