The lovely people at Random House have offered a copy of Tony Black's soon-to-be-released book TRUTH LIES BLEEDING as a give-away on the blog.
While a big part of me is just tempted to just keep it to myself, I shall be a good blogger and do a give-away.
If you haven't read any of Tony's books before, then you're in for a treat. This one is the first of a new series, featuring Inspector Rob Brennan. If you have read him before, then you already know what a great writer he is.
Here's the blurb:
Four teenagers find the mutilated corpse of a young girl stuffed into a dumpster in an Edinburgh alleyway. Who is she? Where did she come from? Who killed her and why? Above all, where is the baby to which she has obviously recently given birth? Inspector Rob Brennan, recently back from psychiatric leave, is assigned the case.
And Tony's having a book launch in Edinburgh on February 9th. I'm hoping to make it there myself as Tony has promised me chocolate if I go. A new book by one of my favourite authors and chocolate? What more can a girl ask for?
But before that, if you live in Brunswick, Australia, then you can hear Tony talk about Celtic Noir tomorrow night. Although, if you do live in Brunswick, it's probably already tomorrow.
So, all you have to do to win the book is tell me something about yourself that I don't already know. Just leave it in the comments. Or, if it's really embarrassing, send me an e-mail and I promise not to tell more than 20 people. I'll then pull one lucky winner out of one of my favourite boots.
And, just to start you off, here's mine. I once played a butch, weightlifting nurse in a German play (I know, I know - typecast). A very nerve-wracking experience, especially since ad-libbing in German was not an option if I forgot my lines. Luckily, I was murdered at the end of Act I.
