If you're not familiar with mysteries from Soho Press, you're missing some of the best police procedurals set internationally. So, I'll give you the chance to win one. Garry Disher's Blood Moon is set in Australia. It's an Inspector Hal Challis and Sergeant Ellen Destry Investigation, as Challis and his team deal with the beating of a private school chaplain, a murdered planning official, Christian fundamentalists, racist bloggers, and hordes of vacationing teenagers. I really like these traditional detective stories, with solid police work, as Marilyn Stasio said in The New York Times Book Review.
If you prefer your police investigations in Brazil, you could win Buried Strangers by Leighton Gage, a Chief Inspector Mario Silva Investigation. When a dog uncovers a human bone, Chief Inspector Mario Silva of the Federal Police and his team are called in. It isn't long before they uncover a clandestine cemetery. Someone has disposed of hundreds of bodies, sometimes burying them in family groups. Gage never pulls his punches when dealing with Brazil, its politics, and its crime.
So, you could win Blood Moon or Buried Strangers, published by Soho Press. You can enter to win both books, 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 "Blood Moon" or Win "Buried Strangers."

The contest will end Thursday, May 6 at 6 p.m. PT. The winners will be selected by random number generator. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!
