Dollar Days on Amazon

The 2nd book in the Annie Ogden mystery series, Zombie Candy, goes on sale for 99 cents from April 19 – 24. I was never good in math, but by my calculation that’s more than 70% off. A good time to add it to your bargain bookshelf.

It’s not about zombies, and it’s not about candy.

One Amazon reviewer called the book “Darkly hilarious,” while another said it was “A perfect noir comedy.” Praise like that warms my heart, but what do YOU think?


Frederick Lee Brooke launched the Annie Ogden Mystery Series in 2011 with Doing Max Vinyl and followed with Zombie Candy in 2012, a book that is neither about zombies nor sweets. The third mystery in the series, Collateral Damage, appeared in 2013. Saving Raine, the first book in Fred's entirely new series, The Drone Wars, appeared in December 2013, and was followed by its sequel, Inferno, in June 2014.

A resident of Switzerland, Fred has worked as a teacher, language school manager and school owner. He has three boys and two cats and recently had to learn how to operate both washing machine and dryer. He makes frequent trips back to his native Chicago.

When not writing or doing the washing, Fred can be found walking along the banks of the Rhine River, sitting in a local cafe, or visiting all the local pubs in search of his lost umbrella.
