MystereBooks: This Week's Update of Kindle Crime Fiction Priced $2.99 or Less

MystereBooks: Mystery, Suspense, and Thriller eBooks

Every month Amazon publishes a list of 100 Kindle books priced $3.99 or less. We thought we'd take that idea and improve on it, publishing a list of 100 Kindle mystery books priced $2.99 or less and updating it every week!

Here is our general criteria for selecting titles to include: books from major or specialty publishers of crime fiction and those written by authors familiar to us. There are far more than 100 to choose from, so we use our best judgment to narrow it down.

And just a reminder … as we add new titles, older ones are removed from the list. These books aren't likely to be repeated, so we encourage you to check in frequently!

Just a couple of notes before we get started …

• Amazon announced a new list of titles for November 2012 this past week. We posted the list of mystery and suspense books on Thursday and have not repeated any of these titles in our own update today.

Perservance Press discounted several of its titles this week to $2.99. We've read most of these and enthusiastically recommend them.

Cinemystery: New Trailer for John Dies at the End

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

Magnolia Pictures has released a new trailer for the comic fantasy thriller John Dies at the End, adapted from the novel by David Wong.

It's all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't.

Directed by Don Coscarelli from his own adapted screenplay, John Dies at the End opens in theaters January 25th, 2013.
