First is Hilary Davidson
You all know what a fan of Hilary's I am and her sophomore effort THE NEXT ONE TO FALL hits the street today and in celebration I'm offering a signed Advanced Readers Copy of THE NEXT ONE TO FALL and all you have to do is tell me what your favorite vacation was (domestic or international) in the comments section. If you want, I'll even have Hilary personalize it when she visits the Poisoned Pen on February 21st.
Here's the skinny on THE NEXT ONE TO FALL:
Travel writer Lily Moore has been persuaded by her closest friend, photographer Jesse Robb, to visit Peru with him. Jesse is convinced that the trip will lure Lily out of her dark mood, but Lily is haunted by betrayal and loss. At Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas, they discover a woman clinging to life at the bottom of an ancient stone staircase. Just before the woman dies, she tells Lily the name of the man who pushed her.
When the local police investigate, the forensic evidence they find doesn’t match what Lily knows. Unable to accept the official ruling of accidental death, Lily hunts down the wealthy man who was the dead woman’s traveling companion and discovers a pattern of dead and missing women in his wake.
Obsessed with getting justice for these women, Lily sets in motion a violent chain of events that will have devastating consequences.
To Sweeten the pot, I'll throw in a copy of WILD THING by Josh Bazell, who will be at the Poisoned Pen on March 5th, so I'll get that signed for you, too. By the way, if you haven't already, you can check out my interview with Dr. Bazell over at LitReactor right HERE.
And here's the skinny on WILD THING:
It's hard to find work as a doctor when using your real name will get you killed. So hard that when a reclusive billionaire offers Dr. Peter Brown, aka Pietro Brnwa, a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world's worst field assignment, Brown has no real choice but to say yes. Even if it means that an army of murderers, mobsters, and international drug dealers-not to mention the occasional lake monster-are about to have a serious Pietro Brnwa problem.
Facing new and old monsters alike, Dr. Brnwa's story continues in this darkly funny and lightning-paced follow up to Josh Bazell's bestselling debut.
