The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly: Giveaway (7/16) CLOSED

Thursday, June 25, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Do you enjoy audiobooks? I love listening to books on tape - or on cd, actually - while I am in the car, or on the treadmill. Perfect for passing the time quickly and enjoying a good book when you cannot read comfortably. Easy on the eyes, too!

This is the first time I am offering an audiobook giveaway, and have picked a special treat for you - The Scarecrow, the new Michael Connelly book that just came out less than a month ago.

Book Description

Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's.



The Giveaway
Thanks to Hachette Book Group, I have the opportunity to give away THREE copies of The Scarecrow audiobook!
