By far the least expensive way to enjoy France.
New York, New York (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
With Mother’s Day around the corner and summer reads in the planning, digital-first publisher Le French Book, which is specialized in top mysteries and thrillers from France, has kicked off a two-week spring ebook sale on some of its top crime fiction titles. The publisher is dropping the ebook price by 50% to make these best-selling books available at $3.99 and $2.99.
“Our goal with these translations is to bring top French voices to new readers. This spring sale is just another way to make these books available to a wider audience,” founder Anne Trager said.
The publisher is highlighting three titles, offering something for everyone: a psychological thriller, a wine novel/whodunit, and an edge-of-your-seat Paris mystery.
Experiencing France with suspense and mystery
The Paris Lawyer by Sylvie Granotier is a gripping psychological thriller set between the sophisticated corridors of the Paris courts and a small backwater in central France, where rolling hills and quiet country life hide dark secrets. The main character is a rookie French lawyer who is in the midst of investigating her first big case and uncovers secrets about her mother’s disappearance many years before. Readers see into the characters’ minds and feel their emotions, making this a nearly compulsive read right through to the surprise ending. It is now on sale for $3.99, for a limited time only.
A total Epicurean immersion in a new subgenre
Treachery in Bordeaux, by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen, is both a wine novel and a whodunit, creating what may just be a new subgenre. A recent review described it as “total immersion at its best--all the senses are stimulated... The depth of understanding, and the care the authors put into taking their reader deep into their passion for wine, writing, and French life is a gem to behold.” This journey to Bordeaux takes readers behind the scenes of a grand cru wine estate that has fallen victim to either negligence or sabotage. What happened and why? Two amateur winemaker sleuths gumshoe around the region to find out. It is now available for $2.99, for a limited time only.
An edge-of-your-seat Paris mystery
In Frédérique Molay’s The 7th Woman, readers get to go to Paris, where beautiful-sounding names and places surround ugly crimes committed there. Terror stalks young, successful women in the streets of the French capital and into the once-safety of their apartments, as a deranged serial killer focuses on humiliating chief detective Nico Sirsky, while brutally slaying his quarry. One recent review describes it as having “terrific characters, mind-haunting suspense. A detective’s personal life and new love are in danger of being shattered by a vicious killer – you won’t want to put this one down before you reach its last tense pages.” It is now available for $3.99, for a limited time only.
