Giveaway!! A book a day in the month of May!!! Day 4!!


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 Way Home By George Pelecanos . Christopher Flynn is trying to get it right. After years of trouble and rebellion that enraged his father and nearly cost him his life, he has a steady job in his father's company, he's seriously dating a woman he respects, and, aside from the distrust that lingers in his father's eyes, his mistakes are firmly in the past.

One day on the job, Chris and his partner come across a temptation almost too big to resist. Chris does the right thing, but old habits and instincts rise to the surface, threatening this new-found stability with sudden treachery and violence. With his father and his most trusted friends, he takes one last chance to blast past the demons trying to pull him back.

Like Richard Price or William Kennedy, Pelecanos pushes his characters to the extremes, their redemption that much sweeter because it is so hard fought. Pelecanos has long been celebrated for his unerring ability to portray the conflicts men feel as they search and struggle for power and love in a world that is often harsh and unforgiving but can ultimately be filled with beauty.

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!

To enter this giveaway, please leave me a comment and include an email address so I can get hold of you when you win, sorry...no email addy and I'll have to draw a different name.

For an extra entry, blog or tweet about the contest and let me know.

And for yet ANOTHER entry, follow my blog! And if you already follow...bless your pea-pickin' lil' heart, just say so in your comment and you get the extra entry! (Yes, I am, in fact shameless!)

How easy is that three chances to win!!

This giveaway ends on May 11th!
