Congratulations to the winners of my "Favorite Authors" contest. Still Life by Louise Penny will go to Michael C. in Kalamazoo, MI. The Drop Edge of Yonder by Donis Casey also goes to Michigan, to Sherrie M. from Muskegon. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
This week, I'm giving away two hardcover crime novels. If you read this blog regularly, you know I just reviewed Linda L. Richards' second Kitty Pangborn mystery, Death Was in the Picture. I'm giving away the first book in
the series, so you can start at the beginning. Death Was the Other Woman introduces Kitty, secretary to Dex Theroux, a private detective. Kitty isn't sure what side of the law they're working on when Dex takes a case for the wife of a shady businessman. Richards' mysteries are a fascinating peek into the Depression.
Lisa Jackson's Lost Souls is the story of a young woman whose dreams of being a true crime writer leads her to enroll in All Saints College despite her police detective father's wishes. Four girls, "lost souls", have disappeared from the school in the last two years. Kristi Bentz' search takes her undercover into a cult, and into the path of a serial killer.
