CITY OF DRAGONS ~ CONTEST!
It’s still very early in the year, but I already know the just released City Of Dragons by Kelli Stanley is going to be hard to beat for my favorite book of 2010. It also has one of the best covers and interior book designs I've seen in a long time.
I enjoyed this 1940s San Francisco, steeped in noir sensibilities, hardboiled P.I. tale so much I want to share the experience, so I’m running a contest for a free copy.
To enter just leave a comment below stating you’d like to be in the contest before February 18th. I’ll make a randon drawing from all entries and announce the winner on Friday February 19th.
CITY OF DRAGONS
In San Francisco's Chinatown, fireworks explode as the city celebrates Chinese New Year with a Rice Bowl Party, a three day-and-night carnival designed to raise money and support for China war relief. Miranda Corbie is a 33-year-old private investigator who stumbles upon the fatally shot body of Eddie Takahashi.
The Chamber of Commerce wants it covered up. The cops acquiesce. All Miranda wants is justice – whatever it costs.
From Chinatown tenements, to a tattered tailor's shop in Little Osaka, to a high-class bordello draped in Southern Gothic, she shakes down the city – her city – seeking the truth.
