Giveaway - The Secret Speech - Tom Rob Smith


Looking for an interesting choice for your book club? Consider The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith. (And the reading guide is already done for you!)

And thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have three copies to giveaway.


From the publisher:

" Soviet Union, 1956. Stalin is dead, and a violent regime is beginning to fracture-leaving behind a society where the police are the criminals, and the criminals are innocent. A secret speech composed by Stalin's successor Khrushchev is distributed to the entire nation. Its message: Stalin was a tyrant. Its promise: The Soviet Union will change.
Facing his own personal turmoil, former state security officer Leo Demidov is also struggling to change. The two young girls he and his wife Raisa adopted have yet to forgive him for his part in the death of their parents. They are not alone. Now that the truth is out, Leo, Raisa, and their family are in grave danger from someone consumed by the dark legacy of Leo's past career. Someone transformed beyond recognition into the perfect model of vengeance.
From the streets of Moscow in the throes of political upheaval, to the Siberian gulags, and to the center of the Hungarian uprising in Budapest, THE SECRET SPEECH is a breathtaking, epic novel that confirms Tom Rob Smith as one of the most exciting new authors writing today."

Tom Rob Smith--the author whose debut, Child 44, has been called "brilliant" (Chicago Tribune), "remarkable" (Newsweek) and "sensational" (Entertainment Weekly)--returns with an intense, suspenseful new novel: a story where the sins of the past threaten to destroy the present, where families must overcome unimaginable obstacles to save their loved ones, and where hope for a better tomorrow is found in the most unlikely of circumstances .

Read an excerpt of The Secret Speech. Download a podcast of The Secret Speech. Or find out a bit more from a Q& A with Tom Rob Smith, or find him on Twitter or on Facebook.

Simply leave a comment to be entered. Open to both the US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday June 12 at 6 pm EST.
