Cheap Thrills

Have I got a deal for you.

Well, Amazon has a deal for you, anyway. Two great thrillers I read over the past year are now on sale at killer prices.

First up, Anthony Neil Smith‘s Hogdoggin’ is on sale in hardcover for just $6.71, which is more than $18.00 off. This is almost half the cost of the trade edition, folks. Hogdoggin’ is the sequel to Yellow Medicine, so I recommend you take advantage of the low price and grab both books. If you like antiheroes, you will love Billy Lafitte.

Then there’s Duane Swierczynski‘s Severance Package, a trade paperback for only $5.58. As I read it, I thought it would make a great movie. Sure enough, last I heard the rights have been sold. But why wait for Hollywood to get their act together?

I’ve been reading more crime than horror lately, and these are two of the books I’ve made the transition with.

Make with the clicky, people. You won’t regret it.

UPDATE: Today I found out another great crime read, Saturday’s Child by Ray Banks, is available in trade paperback for only $1.91. That’s the very definition of a steal. Not as action-driven as the previous two books, but you’ve got compelling characters and a seamless shift between first-person point of views of two characters. Well done.

    Happy New Year!

    I’ve been reading more crime fiction as well.

    I would recommend Stuart Neville’s debut The Ghosts of Belfast and the Stieg Larsson trilogy starting with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    Excellent reads and crime fiction.

    Take care,

    Oh and Small Crimes by Dave Zeltserman, fantastic final page and the rest of the novel as well.

      I keep seeing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but hadn’t heard a lot about it. I’ll have to pick it up next time Borders sends me a coupon (which will be any second now the way they’ve been going).

      Not heard of Zeltserman. I’ll look him up.
