Congratulations to the winners of the last contest, a Cara Black giveaway. Murder in the Latin Quarter will go to Debbie L. of Achille, OK. Gale M. from Houston, TX won Murder in the Palais Royal. And, because Michael Palmer's autographed copy of A Heartbeat Away never arrived from the author, Carol M. will receive an autographed copy of Mary Anna Evans' Strangers. Sorry, Carol.
There's always an abundance of crime in Florida, so this week, I'm giving away ARCs of two crime novels set there. Start with James W. Hall's Silencer. When a wealthy landowner is murdered, Thorn finds himself in danger, kidnapped by contract killers, and imprisoned. It takes the dark sheep of the victim's family to investigate his grandfather's murder and Thorn's disappearance, as they uncover a trail that leads back to the 1930s, and a sinister plan.
There's not much that says Florida more than one of Tim Dorsey's wild rides through the state with his character Serge Storms. In Electric Barracuda, Serge leads cops on a chase around Florida in a screwball story filled with action, adventure, and a few deaths.
So, would you like to win Silencer or Electric Barracuda? You can enter to win both books, but I need separate entries. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject lines should read, either "Win Silencer " or "Win Electric Barracuda." Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Entries only from the U.S., please.
The contest will close Thursday, April 28 at 6 PM PT when I'll draw the winners using a random number generator. The books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
