The St. Patrick’s Day Steal

Okay, ‘steal’ might be pushing it a little, but the lovely people at Severn House are celebrating the week that’s in it with a St Patrick’s Day eBook offer, i.e., selected titles by Irish authors at knockdown prices. One of said titles is mine own CRIME ALWAYS PAYS, with the Severn House blurb running thusly:
Author and journalist Declan Burke, described as a “comic genius” by Booklist, is on his usual hilarious form in the mad-cap caper, Crime Always Pays. Let Declan whisk you away to the Greek islands as cops and robbers, losers and hopers, villains, saints – and a homicidal Siberian wolf called Anna – all collide.
  With the eBook reduced to £4.99 / $7.99, why not give it a whirl?
  The offer runs from 16th-18th March 2016. The UK edition can be found here; and the US edition can be found here. And if the spirit moves you to spread the word via a simple click on one of the buttons below, I – and all my saintly and scholarly ancestors – will be deeply appreciative …
  Oh, and while we’re on the subject of my books, you can read a sample from any of them courtesy of the fine folks at the Los Angeles Public Library

Read it, loved it, endorsed it. When's the next?

Sorry, Declan.

I don't read crime novels, funny or not, set in idyllic Sligo.

But you knew that!
