Monday Book Give Away, #29

This week's offering is and ARC of The 47th Samurai, by Stephen Hunter. He's another of my favorite authors. When I met him to get my copy signed, he said, "I'm nothing special." I about fell off my feet, he's very special and he's one of the few authors that I've read every book they've written.

The Washington Post - Daniel Woodrell
If the wholesale violence is not a deterrent, readers will find that Washington Post film critic Hunter is a great entertainer, one of our finest practitioners of the classic blood-soaked and propulsive American thriller. With fluid, confident prose he writes big stories of a man, mostly alone, who must go forth for us all and slay the dragon. And, dear reader, there are yet dragons about, cleverly passing as rogue elements of the government, gangsters, terrorists from abroad, disguised but still with us.

If you're interested, leave a comment. I will keep the comments open until Sunday afternoon and then announce the winner on Monday morning when I offer a new book. The winner will chosen by the Random-Number-Generator.

The winner of last week's book is EmileeHope of Another Binkley Sister Blog.
