So of course I had to go and see if the sale includes my very favourite Hard Case Crime book, the pioneering hardboiled detective tale The Valley of Fear by A. C. Doyle.

It does.

(That said, I don't know if the e-book version would be as worthwhile; a lot of what makes the Hard Case edition of The Valley of Fear so great is in the physical presentation.)

Yeah, I didn't mention that one since Arthur Conan Doyle is generally not considered a "classic" noir writer and the book is also in the public domain in the US. So while it's "on sale" for $2, it's also available for free elsewhere.
