The Venus Death: A Ralph Lindsay Mystery

The Venus Death: A Ralph Lindsay Mystery

Multiple File Formats

Two attractive women…one personable man…a gun…a shot…and then black headlines asking red blood for…THE VENUS DEATH BY BEN BENSON 

Ben Benson’s superb descriptions of the state police at work…and at play…have given all of his mystery novels a unique and buoyant quality of authenticity. The Venus Death is no exception…but here Mr. Benson departs from previous practice to create a vigorous new hero, young state trooper Ralph Lindsey.

This is Lindsey’s story from start to finish. It begins when a glamorous blonde singles him out for personal attention. It continues through the frantic horror of murder…the desperate wish to clear his own name…the urgent, driving need to protect the people he loves. The Venus Death is Ben Benson at top form, which means a strikingly different story for solid reading entertainment.

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, EPUB and MOBI (Kindle) versions of the book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
