There is a compilation edition of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe novels, The Lady in the Lake, The High Window and The Little Sister in today's daily Kindle deal for 99p.  
 
An even better bargain than Tinker Tailor Solider Spy the other day, and well worth a read!

Wow that's a very good one! I have a feeling I read a Raymond Chandler book many years ago and couldn't really get into it. This seems like a good opportunity to give him another chance! 

 

Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver is also £.199 at the moment.

The first book [The Big Sleep] is probably the best one to start with.  It has dated, being set in LA in the 40's, but it is still a good, strong story that is very well written.

Aware this is a weird question, but does The Big Sleep involve a man having to dress up as a Nun? Because that's the only thing I can really remember about the book I'm thinking of and the name sounds familiar...

You are right, that is a weird question! 

 

No, no cross-dressing in this one.

Indie crime publisher Fahrenheit is having a sale on ebooks, everything is 85p. You have to get them direct from their website rather than the kindle store: 

https://fahrenheit-press.myshopify.com/collections/kindle-ebooks

and the discount is automatically applied at checkout. 

 

I decided to try Burke’s Last Witness by CJ Dunford and Iteration by Liz Monument :)

The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton is one of the kindle daily deals today for £1.19 (I remember someone on here saying it was really good but I can't remember who!)

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo is also one of the daily deals for 99p, another book I've heard really good things about :)

I enjoyed Six of Crows, though it's not a book for everyone. Would recommend if the synopsis appeals :). It's book 1 in a duology though!

That may have been me? I listened to the audiobook, and thought it was very enjoyable.

I read the synopsis a while ago and wasn't sure. I liked the idea of the story in general but it sounded like it had a lot of main characters and I didn't know if that would make it a bit choppy or confusing. But I think it's worth trying for 99p!

Stories of Your Life and Others, a collection of short stories by Ted Chang (which includes the story the film Arrival was based on) is 99p in the monthly deal at the moment.

 

Annoying, as I only bought the paperback last month...

That's really good!

 

Laura Purcell's The Corset is 99p too apparently and I'd recommend that if anyone's looking for a spooky /psychological sort of book.

Orbit have loads of books for 99p at the moment. Including Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Rosewater by Tade Thompson (which won the Arthur C. Clarke award for this year) :)

Do you have a link?

 

2001 is 99p on Kindle, but Rosewater is still £6.49!

 

ETA:

 

Ignore the above, it is 99p, I was looking at the paperback price...

Indie crime publishers Fahrenheit Press have their ebooks on sale for 50p. It doesn't look like they're on sale when you click the book but the discount is applied when you add it to basket. 

I just got 'Killer Instincts', 'Noirville' (which is an anthology so I felt like that was a particularly good deal!) and 'The Eternity Fund' (because I got Liz Monument's other book 'Iterations' a while ago and I think this one is related, if not a direct sequel).

For anyone who is interested in science fiction and who hasn't read it yet, the excellent The Player of Games by Iain M Banks is just 99p on the Kindle as part of Amazon's Cyber Monday sale.

 

Also, Arthur C Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama is also the same price.

Orbit have their 2019 releases on sale for £1.99. I'm very tempted by The Ten Thousand Doors of January and The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep.
