Congratulations to the winners in the "Dead"lier Species contest. Coreen W. of Glendale, AZ won Kate Atkinson's When Will There Be Good News, and Lasa D. from Hurst, TX won Carolyn Hart's Ghost at Work. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
I've given time this week to mysteries set overseas, so I'm offering two ARCs with European settings in the latest contest.
The Paris Enigma by Pablo De Santis has been compared to a combination of The Devil in the White City and The Alienist, injected with wry humor. In 1889, an exclusive group of the most renowned detectives from around the world, The Twelve Detectives, are supposed to meet for the unveiling of Eiffel's magnificent structure at the Paris World's Fair. However, one sends a message to a friend, Victor Arzaky, who is drawn into the investigation when one of The Twelve is discovered murdered beneath the new Eiffel Tower.
Reginald Hill brings back Yorkshire cops Dalziel and Pascoe in The Price of Butcher's Men. Dalziel is recuperating at a seaside resort, one that also houses some very odd people. When someone ends up dead, Pascoe and Dalziel reunite to investigate the case. It's another riveting story from the award-winning author.
