Killer Choice by Tom Hunt + a Giveaway

Happy Book Birthday to Tom Hunt whose debut, Killer Choice, hits shelves today!

Gary and Beth should be celebrating - they have a baby on the way after years of trying and basically their whole lives ahead of them. But when Beth is diagnosed with stage IV cancer, all their hopes and dreams crumble. They're told the tumor in Beth's brain is inoperable and that she's got maybe a year at most. But Gary doesn't want to give up. Especially when he hears about a new treatment that's shown promising results. Unfortunately, the cost of the treatment is so far out of reach that it seems hopeless.

Then Gary receives a call. A man who says he can solve Gary's money problem in exchange for a favor: Gary has to kill a man. 

Hunt's debut is being touted as the perfect read for Harlan Coben fans, and it's easy to see why. Hunt employs the same technique Coben has made a name for himself with - an everyday, average guy gets swept up in a dangerous plot with high stakes and lots of action.

Hunt uses short chapters with cliffhanger endings that sweep the reader along into the next and the next and the next until the book is done.

And of course since it's a story about desperation - a man desperate to save the life of the woman he's spent almost half of his life with - the stakes are quiet high even without the murder aspect.

Hunt doesn't tease readers with the subplot, it's clear from the beginning what's brewing behind the scenes for Gary (of course Gary doesn't know). The why and the who behind the task he's been given plays out in alternating chapters as Gary considers his decision... I won't tell you how that plays out, that's the point of his story!

To celebrate the release, I'm giving away one copy of Killer Choice! To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter below before Monday, February 19. Open US only.

I can't imagine being a hitman, even to save a relative! Sounds very film noir!
