Giveaway!! A book a day in the month of May!!! Day 3!!


Sorry this giveaway has ended. Please check the list on the left side for the current giveaways!

Todays book is also courtesy of those wonderful folks over at Hachette Publishing. (Thanks again Miriam!)

Today's giveaway is The Secret Speech By Tom Rob Smith . It is 1956. Three years ago, Leo Demidov moved on from his career as a member of the state security force. As an MGB officer, Leo had been responsible for untold numbers of arrests and interrogations. But as a reward for his heroic service in stopping a killer who had terrorized citizens throughout the country, Leo was granted the authority to establish and run a homicide department in Moscow. Now, he strives to see justice done on behalf of murder victims in the Soviet capital, while at the same time working to build a life with his wife Raisa and their adopted daughters, Zoya and Elena.

Leo's past, however, can not be left behind so easily, and the legacy of his former career--the friends and families of those he had arrested as a state security officer--continues to hound him. Now, a new string of murders in the capital threaten to bring Leo's past crashing into the present, shattering the fragile foundations of his new life in Moscow, and putting his daughter Zoya's life at risk.

Faced with a threat to his family, Leo is launched on a desperate, personal mission that will take him to the harsh Siberian Gulags, to the depths of the hidden criminal underworld, and into the heart of Budapest and the Hungarian uprising.

Each day's giveaway will run for one week, but I'll only send books out once a week, I don't think I have the patience required to hit the post office on a daily basis!

I just read a review of this book on amazon. they said some good things. Are they ever going to make movies from good books anymore? no not the di vinci code. I just thought that book was so mechanical (technically) ok, here's a set piece and here's another set piece. anyway. I'll come back and read your blog.
