Giveaway - The Scarecrow (audiobook) - Michael Connelly


Michael Connelly is one of my all time favourite mystery/thriller authors.

And thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have three audiobook copies to offer for giveaway!

What's it about? From the publisher:

"Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's."

Listen to an excerpt of The Scarecrow.

Read an excerpt of The Scarecrow.

Sounds great doesn't it? To be entered, simply leave a comment. And in a blatant attempt to increase my followers, an extra entry if you follow. Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes. Ends Friday June 19th at 6 pm EST.Please ensure I have a way to contact you, either by email or through your blog. Good luck and check back tomorrow for yet another giveaway!
