Bookreporter.com's Linwood Barclay Contest

Hey, everyone! The holidays are looming and the folks at Bookreporter.com have a great holiday contest going on right now for Linwood Barclay fans.

Here's a bit about the giveaway:

What Friend or Relative Would You Like to Thrill with a Personalized Signed Copy of Linwood Barclay’s BROKEN PROMISE This Holiday Season?

Here’s an opportunity to win a personalized signed copy of BROKEN PROMISE for someone on your holiday list. And, ahem, this is not a “To Me/From Me” gift! The purpose is for you to give this book to a thriller reader. Barclay is hailed as “a suspense master” by Stephen King, and the writing in BROKEN PROMISE, the first book in the Promise Falls trilogy, lives up to that description. This fast-paced series is also on a fast publication schedule. The second book, FAR FROM TRUE, will be in stores on March 22, 2016. The third book, THE TWENTY THREE, will be out on November 16, 2016.

Broken Promise released in hardcover this summer and if you haven't had a chance to read it, it sounds like a doozy (aren't all of Linwood Barclay's books doozies?). Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

From New York Times bestselling author Linwood Barclay comes an explosive novel set in the peaceful small town of Promise Falls, where secrets can always be buried—but never forgotten…

After his wife’s death and the collapse of his newspaper, David Harwood has no choice but to uproot his nine-year-old son and move back into his childhood home in Promise Falls, New York. David believes his life is in free fall, and he can’t find a way to stop his descent.

Then he comes across a family secret of epic proportions. A year after a devastating miscarriage, David’s cousin Marla has continued to struggle. But when David’s mother asks him to check on her, he’s horrified to discover that she’s been secretly raising a child who is not her own—a baby she claims was a gift from an “angel” left on her porch.

When the baby’s real mother is found murdered, David can’t help wanting to piece together what happened—even if it means proving his own cousin’s guilt. But as he uncovers each piece of evidence, David realizes that Marla’s mysterious child is just the tip of the iceberg.

Other strange things are happening. Animals are found ritually slaughtered. An ominous abandoned Ferris wheel seems to stand as a warning that something dark has infected Promise Falls. And someone has decided that the entire town must pay for the sins of its past…in blood.
