Bargain Books!

This weekend I found some great bargains at a couple of local libraries near me in the 'for sale' section. Going to the library and checking out what's on the sale rack usually results in an abundance of Patricia Cornwell or James Patterson but this time 'round I found something a little more to my liking:

All the Flowers Are Dying  Pandaemonium  Whiskey Sour (Jack Daniels Mystery, #1)

I have been eyeing off Christopher Brookmyre's 'Pandaemonium' ever since Bernadette from http://fairdinkumcrime.com/ recommended the book to me on Goodreads.com a while back. For some reason I didn't buy the book back then - luckily as I paid next to nothing for this little used copy. The book blurb can be found here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7438238-pandaemonium
 
Thanks to kindle short 'Serial' I've been hooked on books set in this universe of serial killers and determined cops. I've been wanted to get hold of 'Whiskey Sour' by J.A. Konrath for a little while to read where it all started. A real find, this one. Head here to read the book blurb: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/509702.Whiskey_Sour
 
The last of the books is a Matthew Scudder hardcover by Lawrence Block, 'All The Flowers Are Dying'. While this series has been largely hit or miss, I'm looking forward to reading this one. It's the 16th novel to feature Scudder and judging from the Goodreads.com ratings and blurb it looks to be a winner: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/919874.All_the_Flowers_Are_Dying
 
All up, this trio of treasures set me back a whopping 70 cents. I'd say that's a damn good investment if ever there was one!
