I'm kicking off the mystery giveaway a day early this week because it works better with my weekend schedule. Congratulations to the winners of Ann Cleeves' Silent Voices. One copy went to Mary B. from St. Paul, MN, and the other to Jane L. from Diamondhead, MS.
This week, I'm giving away two mysteries with a twist of humor. Actually, I think of Deborah Coonts' Lucky Bastard as a caper. No matter, how you think of it, the latest Lucky O'Toole novel, set in The Babylon casino in Las Vegas, is a treat. When a woman is found murdered with a stiletto on a car in the casino's car show, it's up to Lucky, the head of public relations and the chief troubleshooter, to clean up the problem. Cleaning up for Lucky means dealing with all the daily problems, her love life, and, of course, murder.
Or, you could win Lisa Lutz' The Last Word. Author Gillian Flynn says, "The Last Word is Raymond Chandler meets Arrested Development. Zany, witty, and full of dark surprises, Lisa Lutz's novel is pure fun—and Izzy Spellman, PI, tops the list of 'Fictional Characters I'd Like to Meet for a Bourbon.'" Izzy Spellman has been followed, extorted and questioned as part of her family's firm, Spellman Investigations. Now, though, with a charge of embezzlement against her, the business, her license, and her family's livelihood is threatened. It could be the end of Izzy Spellman, PI.
