Must Read Monday: Favorite Freebie Finds

Part of the fun of finding free mysteries for Kindle is uncovering the gems that I might not otherwise have read.  Over the course of the past year or so my five favorite freebie finds were:

  • Lisa Turner's A Little Death In Dixie, a gothic police procedural set in Memphis, Tennessee populated with a wealth of complex characters.
  • Stephen Carpenter's KILLER (A Jack Rhodes Mystery), a gritty novel in which best selling mystery writer Jack Rhodes discovers that the details of the murders he has been writing about in his books match with details from murders that happened before his books were written.  Given this premise the reader is never quite sure how much to trust the narrator, ratcheting up the suspense another notch.
  • Lee Goldberg's Watch Me Die, a hilarious and fast paced mystery featuring security guard turned sleuth Harvey Mapes.  This one is particularly of interest to anyone who loves old pulp mystery paperbacks or 70s and 80s TV private investigators.
  • Loren Estleman's Amos Walker: The Complete Story Collection, the first time all of the Walker stories could be found in one place.  I had to pinch myself when I found it was free.
  • L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories, a terrific collection of dark short stories from heavy hitters like Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, and Duane Swierczynski.
None of these are free now, but they are all more than worth it at their regular price.

So what have your favorite freebie finds been?
