Winners and A Texas Lawman Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of this week's contests. Dianne O. of Oak Park, IL won The Silence of the Library. Jim J. of Savannah, GA will receive Daniel Stashower's The Hour of Peril. And, Death by Surprise goes to Karen M. of San Bruno, CA.

This week, I'm giving away mysteries that feature Texas lawmen. Bill Crider's Dan Rhodes appears in Compound Murder. While Sheriff Dan Rhodes investigates the murder of a college English professor, he must also handle small-town crime. That's crime such as hogs in the house. It's a humorous mystery with an eccentric cast of characters. But, don't ever forget that Sheriff Rhodes is a shrewd judge of character.

If you're in a more serious turn of mind, you could win Terry Shames' The Last Death of Jack Harbin. When Jack Harbin came home from the Gulf War, he wasn't the same man. But, who would want to kill the veteran and his father? Samuel Craddock might be the former police chief, but everyone in town wants him to investigate since the current police chief is a drunk. With his current health problems, Craddock is a little reluctant, but he can't let a veteran's murder go unsolved.

Which Texas mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject heading should read either "Win Compound Murder" or "Win The Last Death of Jack Harbin." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, Feb. 6 at 6 PM CT.
