App Freshness



This app contains three books from the ever popular Poisoned Pen Press for the price of two!
Thrilling mysteries perfect for those long hot summer days.

To save her ancestral plantation home in Florida, Faye Longchamp illegally digs for and sells artifacts on the black market. But while she’s on a legitimate dig on a nearby island, two young members of the crew are murdered and the bones from an older murder are found.

When the body of a boy from one of Greece’s most prominent families turns up in a dumpster in one of Athens’ worst neighborhoods, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis of the Greek Police’s Special Crimes Division is certain there’s a message in the murder. But who sent it and why? Andreas’ politically incorrect search for answers takes him deep into the sordid, criminal side of Athens nightlife and on to the glittering world of Athens society where age-old frictions between old money and new breed jealousy, murder, revenge, revolutionaries, and some very dangerous truths.

At the annual convention of the American Booksellers Association Convention, everything goes wrong. Julia Child’s cooking demonstration in the Random House aisle blows up and catches fire. A top New York editor catches a pie in the face. Invitations to the most exclusive publisher’s party are stolen and all the wrong people show up. Worse, Heidi Yamada, the world-famous poet, is found dead, spread over the late Elvis Presley’s king-sized bed. It’s all caught on film by a busy photographer from Publishers Weekly, a woman soon kidnapped. When the Las Vegas Police shrug their shoulders, Guy Mallon, Heidi’s first publisher (and a discarded lover) wonders what to do.
Poor Guy. He’s a bookman from Santa Barbara who, despite Ross Macdonald and Sue Grafton, never felt inspired to be a sleuth, but he feels he owes it to Heidi. Besides, catching her killer may be his only chance to leave Las Vegas alive…
The Poet’s Funeral is a romp rich with poetry, publishing, book collecting, and literary gossip. Its cast ranges from smalltime players to the famous Rock Bottom Remaiders. It’s a story of ego, love, art, and murder during four hot days at the 1990 ABA.
