Congratulations to the winners of the Law Enforcement Thriller contest. Singularity by Kathryn Casey will go to Terri D. from Clearwater, FL. Ridley Pearson's Killer Summer goes to Judy L. from Litchfield, IL. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.
This week, I have two books from the darker side. The first is a nonfiction book, a
tribute to Raymond Chandler. Catherine Corman's Daylight Noir: Raymond Chandler's Imagined City features photographs of Chandler's Los Angeles, locations featured in his novels, along with quotes from the books. It's a black-and-white treat.
Gillian Flynn's Dark Places is a thriller that asks, "Will the truth really set you free?" Libby Day was seven when her mother and sisters were murdered, and her fifteen-year-old brother was sent to prison for the crimes. She survived, after testifying. But, when the Kill Club, a society obsessed with notorious crimes, pushes her to tell about those events, she realizes, her memories, and her testimony, might not be completely accurate.
So, would you like to win Daylight Noir or Dark Places? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries for each. If you'd like to win one, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read either Win "Daylight" or Win "Dark Places". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. PT. Jim will draw the winners at that time. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
