Winners and Historical Mystery Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Josh A. of Westbrook, ME won Lisa Lutz' The Last Word. The winner of Deborah Coonts' Lucky Bastard is Bev M. of Boise, ID. I mailed the books today.

This week, I'm giving away two historical mysteries. In Lindsey Davis' The Ides of April, Flavia Albia
has taken up her father's profession. The daughter of Marcus Didius Falco is now working as a private informer in Rome. Flavis is stuck with an awful person as a client. But, when the client unexpectedly dies, and there's a series of similar deaths, Flavia finds herself under suspicion. She has to find a killer in order to clear her own name.

Or, you could travel back to a Argentina in 1945 in Blood Tango by Annamaria Alfieri.When an obscure young woman is brutally murdered, the police detective concludes that the murderer mistook the girl for Evita Duarte, the actress-mistress of Colonel Juan Peron. The search for the killer spreads far and wide in a historical mystery filled with colorful characters.

The contest will end early this week before I head for a workshop. The contest will end Wed., July 31 at 6 PM CT.

Which book would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries for each. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win The Ides of April" or "Win Blood Tango." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please.
