Almost the entire Travis McGee series, by John D MacDonald, has dropped to £1.99 each at Kindle UK, as of the middle of September. I’m having trouble believing I didn’t notice this before, and I have no idea how long the price drops will last. The exceptions to the £1.99 pricing are the first two books in the series, The Deep Blue Good-by and Nightmare in Pink, which are £0.99 each. And then A Purple Place for Dying and The Quick Red Fox are each £2.99. But all of the others, all seventeen others, are £1.99 each. Oh yeah, and there’s also an omnibus of the first three titles going for £3.99 right now, which is about the same price, give or take £0.02, as those three titles are individually.
Considering that the Travis McGee books are mostly $8.99 and up in the US, with very rare and brief price drops on a single title every few months, this is a great sale, not just for the prices, but for the fact that the whole series is on sale at once. Wow!
There doesn’t seem to be a McGee series page in the UK, but here’s an author page, with McGee added as a keyword, that does a pretty good job. The sort by price doesn’t seem to be working, but the McGee titles are all pretty much grouped right up front, in the first couple of pages.
