Giveaway - Try Darkness - James Scott Bell


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have 3 copies of Try Darkness by James Scott Bell to giveaway. Looking for a good suspense thriller?

From the publisher:

"Ty Buchanan is living on the peaceful grounds of St. Monica's, far away from the glamorous life he led as a rising trial lawyer for a big L.A. firm. Recovering from the death of his fiancée and a false accusation of murder, Buchanan has found his previous ambitions unrewarding.

Now he prefers offering legal services to the poor and the under-represented, from his "office" at local coffee bar The Freudian Sip. A mysterious woman with a six year old daughter comes to him for help. She's being illegally evicted from a downtown transient hotel, an interest represented by his old law firm and former best friend, Al Bradshaw. Buchanan won't back down. He's going to fight for the woman's rights.

But then she ends up dead, and the case moves from the courtroom to the streets. Determined to find the killer and protect the little girl, who has no last name and no other family, Buchanan finds he must depend on skills he never needed in the employ of a civil law firm."

Read an excerpt of Try Darkness or watch an audio trailer for Try Darkness.

Follow James Scott Bell on Twitter.

Giveaway is open to both Canada and the US, no PO boxes please. Simply comment to be entered. Ends Friday, February 12th at 6 pm EST. Check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.
