Read on for a chance to win a copy of Dying For Mercy. The contest ends midnight on Sunday, August 9 AEST, and it’s open to anyone, including readers overseas.
Although I usually hang around the romance shelves in the bookshop, my serious love for reading started with mysteries*, and I’ll always have room in my shelves for the odd crime fiction. So when Book Thingo was offered a chance to give away 2 copies of Mary Jane Clark’s new release, Dying For Mercy … I couldn’t say no.
What the book is about
I was sent a book description, which I thought I’d post in full to give you an idea of what the book is about and if it appeals to you:
When death shatters the serenity of the exclusive moneyed enclave of Tuxedo Park, New York, Eliza Blake, cohost of the country’s premier morning television show KEY to America, is on the scene. While attending a lavish gala at her friends’ newly renovated estate, Pentimento, Eliza’s host is found dead—a grotesque suicide that is the first act in a macabre and intricately conceived plan to expose the sins of the past involving some of the town’s most revered citizens.
Determined to find out the truth, Eliza and her KEY News colleagues—producer Annabelle Murphy, cameraman B.J. D’Elia, and psychiatrist Margo Gonzalez—discover that Pentimento holds the key. Nestled in the park’s sprawling architectural masterpieces, picturesque gardeners’ cottages, and lush, rolling landscape, the glorious mansion is actually a giant “puzzle house”, filled with ingenious clues hidden in its fireplaces, fountains, and frescoes that lead them from one suspicious locale to another—and, one by one, to the victims of a fiendish killer.
As Pentimento gives up its secrets, it becomes clear that no amount of wealth or privilege will keep the residents of Tuxedo Park safe. But just when Eliza unearths one final surprise, she comes face-to-face with a murderer who believes that some puzzles should never be solved.
* Nancy Drew — Nancy and Ned Nickerson also started my love for romance fiction.
