Wanna win a free book?

Hachette is letting me give away 5 copies of Jack Kilborn's (JA Konrath's) Afraid. To enter, leave a comment here by or before midnight May 20 (that's next Wednesday) and be sure to include your e-mail addy so that I can contact you if you win. Open to US and Canada residents only. 

Afraid is the first release under the Jack Kilborn name, but certainly not the last (there's a teaser chap at the end for the next title). Here's my review of Afraid from the BB archives:

When a helicopter crashes in the small town of Safe Haven, Wisconsin, the townspeople find themselves up against an enemy like nothing anyone has ever seen. Sheriff Arnold “Ace” Streng is a Vietnam vet and even he has never witnessed the brutality that his town will soon be facing. When he receives a call about the crash, Ace heads out to the site only to find his own cousin being tortured and the man’s wife butchered. The men behind this seem to want one thing and one thing only. They want to know where Warren is. It only takes Ace a minute to realize who they seek, but figuring out exactly why and how to rid his town of these enemies will take a bit longer. Jack Kilborn is a pseudonym for author JA Konrath, the man behind the Jack Daniels mystery series. This stand-alone thriller is a bit of a change of pace for Konrath, but is fast-paced and excellently plotted — extremely hard to put down.

This was another one-sitting read for me and it was intense! And stay tuned, tomorrow I should have a link for a free ebook by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch (you might remember that his latest, Abandon, is one I'm really anxious to read and he's in the upcoming Thriller 2 anthology). So be sure to check back tomorrow for that link.
