Winners and a "Cops" Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Please See Us will go to Sandy G. from North Plainfield, NJ, and The Girl Beneath the Sea goes to Dianne C. of Elk Grove Village, IL. The books will go out in the mail today.

This week, I'm giving away three books featuring the police. Let's start with the cozy mystery. Paw of the Jungle by Diane Kelly features Officer Megan Luz and her K-9 partner Brigit. It starts out as a day at the Fort Worth Zoo for the team. But what begins as a field trip turns serious when two rare hyacinth macaws go missing. Soon other animals go missing, but when a rare black rhino is taken, time is of the essence. Megan and Brigit have to find who's behind the mystery before they become prey.

Cozy mystery readers will not want to venture into the next two books. Joseph Schneider's debut was released in February, just before Covid lockdown. One Day You'll Burn is a gritty, sometimes grizzly, police procedural featuring Detective Tully Jarsdel. He's an unusual LAPD cop whose former career in academia comes in handy in a story of violence and evil. The story is an homage to LA, in all its beauty and squalor.

Remain Silent is a Marion Bradshaw novel by Susie Steiner. Bradshaw is an officer in the cold case department of the Cambridgeshire police force. Her personal life is a mess, and when she discovers the body of a Lithuanian immigrant hanging from a tree, her professional life turns dangerous.

Which mystery would you like to win? There are a few of you who will be interested in all three books. I need separate entries for each one. Email me at Your subject heading should read "Win Paw of the Jungle", "Win One Day You'll Burn" or "Win Remain Silent." Please include your name and mailing address. The contest will end Thursday, Aug. 20 at 5 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only, please.

Cool. I had no idea the new Susie Steiner book was out. For anyone who hasn't read them, I recommend the first two (but read them in order). I won't request the book as my library has it. Thanks.
