Congratulations to Rhonda Lomazow, winner of last week's Friday Freebie giveaway, the quartet of new novels: Fallout by Sadie Jones, Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson, Secrecy by Rupert Thomson, and The Wind Is Not a River by Brian Payton.
This week's contest celebrates the release of Edward Falco's new novel, Toughs, freshly-published by the good folks at Unbridled Books. Here's what Kirkus Reviews had to say about the book: “The action moves from the mean streets of the Bronx to basement speakeasies and the fabled Cotton Club, showing Falco's grip on environments from cold-water tenements to greasy spoons....an intriguing read for crime-fiction fans.” In addition to Toughs, one lucky reader will win a copy of two previous novels by Ed Falco, Saint John of the Five Boroughs and Wolf Point, and the short story collection Sabbath Night in the Church of the Piranha. The deepest of thanks to Greg Michalson who provided the books for this week's giveaway. You can learn more about Ed Falco at his website.
Now here's the lowdown on the books up for grabs...
