WERegal Literary has resolved to give away more books than ever in 2012 so they’re giving away a copy of Josh Bazell’s forthcoming WILD THING, his sequel to 2009’s BEAT THE REAPER. (As a bonus, they’re also giving away a few copies of BEAT THE REAPER, in case you missed out on how it all began!) The giveaway is open until February 8th on their site at http://www.regal-literary.com/contests/wildthing/.
Dr. Pietro Brnwa is on the run from the mob he used to kill for. With a new name and a new job that’s tolerable only because it keeps him alive, he’s looking for a way to hurt the mob so badly that it will leave him alone forever.
Dr. Violet Hurst is a sexy and self-destructive paleontologist in the employ of a reclusive billionaire whose obsession with an urban legend living in the woods of Minnesota can’t possibly be justified. Or can it?
The offer of a job protecting Violet could be just the opportunity Pietro’s been looking for. It could also be a hellish morass of murder, corruption, insanity, and international drug smuggling, not to mention the occasional lake monster. But what are the odds of that?
Things are about to get wild.
“It’s so rare that you see a really brilliant writer who is committed, 100%, in every sentence, to giving you a good time. Bazell is, and he does.” – Lev Grossman, Time
I’m on their mailing list because I’ve tried to win some of their giveaways and thought I’d pass this one along.
