Twenty Mystery Titles for $2.99 or Less

Using the advanced search form at for digital books only, I found several titles by NYT bestselling mystery writers selling for $2.99 or less mainly by two publishers: HarperCollins and Minotaur Books. I’ve noted what titles are the start of a series and what titles are stand alone novels.

Disclaimer: prices and availability may vary depending on where you live and I have no idea how long these deals are in place. These are all unaffiliated links. Jane of Dear Author did a list like this for romance titles so I thought it’d be fun to do one for mystery and suspense. It’s not as voluminous but still this is more than I had anticipated and I had fun doing it. Update: Some of these titles & prices may be available for Sony, Kobo or B&N Nook readers.

One Response to Twenty Mystery Titles for $2.99 or Less

  1. I haven’t read many of those books but BLUE HEAVEN by CJ Box was one of my best reads of the year a couple of years ago – well worth $3. As for the rest, probably just as well I can’t read kindle books (other than on my ‘puter which is not something I would ever do).
