BBAW: Giveaway #1

September 14, 2009


It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week and the theme of this year’s event is “Celebrate Books.”  So, in keeping with that theme, I’ll have a giveaway every day this week.  Today’s giveaway is for 2 books by George Dawes Green.  I haven’t read either of these books, so I’m going to use the publisher‘s synopsis.

the caveman's valentineRomulus Ledbetter wasn’t always homeless. He once was a devoted husband, father, and musician with a bright future. He now forages for food in the trash cans of the city’s better neighborhoods and wages a strenuous one-man war against Cornelius Gould Stuyvesant, an evil — and imaginary — power broker who is responsible for society’s ills, as well as the sinister Y- and Z-rays that are corrupting humankind. Then one wintry night, Rom finds a corpse at the mouth of his cave that rouses his well-defined sense of ethics and launches him on an obsessive quest for answers.

The JurorAnnie Laird is Juror 224. A sculptor with a career going nowhere. A single mother struggling to raise a son. A good citizen who has been summoned to what looks like a rountine tour of civic duty. But the trial she is called to serve on is no ordinary trial. It is a mob trial, whose outcome has been meticulously orchestrated by a man of insidious power and deadly precision. A man who lives by the teachings of Lao Tsu…whose magnetism is irresistible…whose mind is as brilliant as it is twisted. He is know to some as the Teacher, and he’s set his sights on Annie Laird.

Pulled into the most chilling depths of the criminal underworld, Annie will be seduced by double-edged promises, stalked by the spector of terror, then, finally, driven to a shocking decision by the most basic motivation a woman can know. THE JUROR is a tour de force of crime and obsession, evil and innocence — a story that taps into fears so primal they linger long after the last page has been read.

To enter to win both The Caveman’s Valentine and The Juror by George Dawes Green, simply leave a comment on this post.  Contest is open worldwide.  I will use to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EST, Friday September 25 2009.  Winner will be announced on Saturday, September 26, 2009.
