Winners and a Crime in the Big City Contest

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. The Fitzgerald Ruse by Mark de Castrique will go to Tina B. from So Thomaston, ME. Sarah E. of Westminster, CA will receive Floodgates by Mary Anna Evans. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.

Washington, D.C. or New York City? Which is your preference as a city for crime? Ken Bruen's Once Were Cops brings Michael O'Shea, a member of Ireland's police force, the Guards, to New York City in an exchange program. But, Shea's dream of becoming part of the NYPD becomes the city's nightmare, when he's paired with an unstable cop. Two cops with dark secrets threaten the safety of New York, in Bruen's hard-boiled novel.

Jane Stanton Hitchcock takes readers behind the scenes of Washington's social and political life (one and the same) in Mortal Friends. Reven Lynch's chic Georgetown neighborhood isn't accustomed to brutal slayings, but the "Beltway Basher" has been too close for comfort. Now, a detective wants her to feed him inside information about a murderer he thinks is a society bigshot. It's Washington society at its worst.

So, do you want New York City or D.C.? 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: Your subject line should read either Win "Once Were Cops" or Win "Mortal Friends." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

The contest will end Thanksgiving evening, Thursday, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. MT. 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!
