Simon R. Green’s THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD is a Kindle Daily Deal today, so don’t miss this locked-room Christmas mystery with a supernatural twist that Publisher’s Weekly called ““[A] brisk, breezy first in a new mystery series.” It’s perfect for a holiday read or as a gift to the mystery lovers on your holiday list, and it’s on sale for $2.99.
THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD is the first in a brand new mystery series starring a fantastic protagonist. When Ishmael Jones is invited by his employer, the enigmatic Colonel, to join him and his family for Christmas, he arrives at the grand but isolated Belcourt Manor in the midst of a blizzard to find that the Colonel has mysteriously disappeared.
As he questions his fellow guests, Ishmael concludes that at least one of them – not least Ishmael himself – is harbouring a dangerous secret. As the storm seals off the Manor from the rest of the world, Ishmael must unmask a ruthless murderer before they strike again. Booklist writes that “Genre-blending author Green introduces another wisecracking protagonist, Ishmael Jones…Fans of the British TV series Torchwood will enjoy the irreverent, otherworldly protagonist.”
The Gatehouse said, “What I loved the most about the Dark Side of the Road isn’t the blending of several genres, the atmosphere or the suspense, which are all masterfully done, but the leading character… [it is] such a fantastic book.”
To celebrate the Kindle Daily Deal and sweeten the holiday season, we’re giving away three of Simon R. Green’s series to one lucky reader! Retweet for a chance to win the Nightside Series, the Secret History Series, and the Ghost Finders series. Happy holidays from all of us at JABberwocky!
