Cinemystery: Edgar Award Winner Bent Road by Lori Roy Optioned for Film

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

Lori Roy's debut thriller Bent Road was the winner earlier this year of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel … and now we're learning that Cross Creek Pictures has optioned the book for film. Mark Mallouk has been selected to write the adapted screenplay.

Roy's next book will be published in June 2013: Until She Comes Home, a tale of spellbinding suspense in which a pair of seemingly unrelated murders crumbles the facade of a changing Detroit neighborhood.

MystereBooks: The YA Thriller Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon, Now at a Special Price

MystereBooks: Mystery, Suspense and Thriller eBooks

Earlier this year crime novelist Michelle Gagnon — author of the "Kelly Jones" mysteries — published her first young adult thriller, Don't Turn Around.

Now, HarperCollins — the book's publisher — has discounted the ebook format to just $1.99 (for a limited time only).

We've provided a summary of the book, below, together with purchase options.

MystereBooks: The Four Julie Collins Mysteries by Lori Armstrong, Now at a Special Kindle Bundle Price

MystereBooks: Mystery, Suspense and Thriller eBooks

Lori Armstrong is a fourth generation South Dakotan. She left the firearms industry in 2000 to pursue her dream of writing crime/mystery fiction and published her first (of four) books in the "Julie Collins" series in 2005, featuring a private investigator in Bear Butte County, South Dakota.

More recently Armstrong began a new series, also set in South Dakota, featuring Mercy Gunderson, a former Army sniper.

Medallion Press has now made a Kindle ebook bundle of the four "Julie Collins" books available for just $9.99, approximately half off the price of the books when purchased individually.

Amazon Kindle eBooks $3.99 or Less

Every month Amazon releases a new selection of Kindle books priced $3.99 or less.

We've looked through the December books and listed below those in the "mystery/suspense" category. (Click on the cover/title for more information on the book from Amazon.)

Though the headline is Kindle books for $3.99 or less, all of these mystery/suspense titles are currently priced at either $1.99 or $2.99. Prices are valid for the month of December 2012 only.

MystereBooks: This Week's Update of Kindle Crime Fiction Priced $2.99 or Less (121201)

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!

A few notes before we get to today's lengthy list …

• Today is the first of the month, which means Amazon has updated its list of 100 books. We've looked through the mystery titles and will report on them later today, but we haven't duplicated any of them on today's update.

• We try to keep close tabs on Poisoned Pen Press but apparently not close enough! Sometime this past week the specialty mystery publisher lowered the price on a number of its titles. We caught a few, reporting on them mid-week, but missed some others. We've added those we made note of today to our update, but in case we missed one or two, here is a link to all of the publisher's titles, sorted by price.

Signet has lowered the price on a number of its Mickey Spillane titles to $2.99 or less, including the first "Mike Hammer" mystery, I, the Jury. We haven't included any here, but encourage you to use this link to see a list.

Firsts on the 1st: New Series Characters Being Introduced in December 2012 Mysteries

Mystery Books for December 2012 featuring New Series Characters

The Hidden Staircase Mystery Books recently updated its list of December 2012 hardcover mysteries as well as shelved new December paperbacks on The Mystery Bookshelf.

In this series of monthly posts, which we call Firsts on the 1st, we're introducing readers to new series characters who will make their mysterious American debut in print during December.

Telemystery: The Killing may be Returning to AMC for a Third Season

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Variety is reporting that work has begun on the third season of The Killing. And though AMC was the network which canceled the series after two seasons, it is also the network that is expected to air the third season … if it comes to be. (None of this information has been confirmed by the network.)

Series stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will almost certainly return, though it isn't clear which, if any, of the other cast members may return since they were all associated with the murder mystery that was (finally) concluded at the end of the second season.

Showrunner Veena Sud is still associated with the show, which means we'll likely not be watching. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
