Free Detective Mysteries & P.I. News 4/24/15

Here’s a chance to enjoy two detective novels set 9 centuries and half a world apart without paying a cent.

First head to 11th c. Japan and enjoy RASHOMON GATE, first book in an extensive series featuring the detective from author I.J. Parker‘s Shamus-winning short story.  Sugawara Akitada, a clerk in the Ministry of Justice, is sent to investigate blackmail at the Imperial University.  He quickly encounters murder.  Well-plotted mystery, exotic landscape, and very fine writing.  (Free for Kindle, Kobo and Apple)



Then time-travel to 1939 Ohio where private eye Maggie Sullivan is hired to find what happened to a man who disappeared in a catastrophic flood 26 years earlier.  DON’T DARE A DAME, third book in an ongoing series by yours truly, won a Shamus Award last year.  (Free for Kindle, Apple, Nook and Kobo in the US and UK through 4/30.)




The next book in Sue Grafton’s alphabet series featuring P.I. Kinsey Milhone, will be titled simply X.  It’s due out 8/25.  Enjoy an excerpt
