The Art of Detection: Kindle Book Sale 6/11

There's one more incredible sale we just have to tell you about today. New York Times Bestselling author Laurie R. King is one of the modern masters of mystery, and her book The Art of Detetcion is on sale for a whopping $6 off. Get in deep with these San Francisco homicide detectives for only 99c!

Name: The Art of Detection (Kate Martinelli Mysteries)
Price: 7.99 0.99
Description: In this thrilling new crime novel that ingeniously bridges Laurie R. King’s Edgar and Creasey Awards—winning Kate Martinelli series and her bestselling series starring Mary Russell, San Francisco homicide detective Kate Martinelli crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes–in a spellbinding dual mystery that could come only from the “intelligent, witty, and complex” mind of New York Times bestselling author Laurie R. King….

Kate Martinelli has seen her share of peculiar things as a San Francisco cop, but never anything quite like this: an ornate Victorian sitting room straight out of a Sherlock Holmes story–complete with violin, tobacco-filled Persian slipper, and gunshots in the wallpaper that spell out the initials of the late queen.

Philip Gilbert was a true Holmes fanatic, from his antiquated d├ęcor to his vintage wardrobe. And no mere fan of fiction’s great detective, but a leading expert with a collection of priceless memorabilia–a collection some would kill for.

And perhaps someone did: In his collection is a century-old manuscript purportedly written by Holmes himself–a manuscript that eerily echoes details of Gilbert’s own murder.

Now, with the help of her partner, Al Hawkin, Kate must follow the convoluted trail of a killer–one who may have trained at the feet of the greatest mind of all times.

Reviews: "I love this series. I began with King's Mary Russel series, and while that is up and down but always intelligent, the Kate Martinelli series is unlike any other. This San Francisco cop rocks as a partner and a brave intelligence. The series solves crimes while illustrating Kate's relationship with her cop partner and life partner, though more heavily on the cop partner side. The plots are complex and this book dips into the Sherlockian details of King's other series."
