Giveaway - Slip of The Knife - Denise Mina


Denise Mina is a fantastic Scottish crime author. If you haven't discovered her yet, here's your chance. Is your book club looking for a great mystery to read? Consider Slip of the Knife. And there's a reading group guide for you to use as well.

From the publisher:

"Paddy Meehan is no stranger to murder--as a reporter she lives at crime scenes--but nothing has prepared her for this visit from the police. Her former boyfriend and fellow journalist Terry Patterson has been found hooded and shot through the head. Paddy knows she will be of little help--she had not seen Terry in more than six months. So she is bewildered to learn that in his will he has left her his house and several suitcases full of notes. Drawn into a maze of secrets and lies, Paddy begins making connections to Terry's murder that no one else has seen, and soon finds herself trapped in the most important--and dangerous--story of her career."

Get a head start - read an excerpt of Slip of the Knife. Watch a video with Denise talking about this book and Paddy, the recurring character in this series.

Thanks to the Hachette Book Group I have 3 copies Slip of the Knife, to giveaway. Open to Canada and the US, no po boxes please. Simply comment to be entered. Ends March Saturday March 27th, 6 pm EST.

This is one I'm looking forward to reading - watch for my review.
