Well, that near future has arrived.
Beginning today, we’re accepting entries in a contest to win five free copies of Atlanta author Karin Slaughter’s brand-new novel, Broken (Delacorte Press). Like Undone (2009), Broken brings together characters from both her Grant County series and her smaller one starring Special Agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Of this new novel’s plot, Publishers Weekly explains:
When Dr. Sara Linton returns home to Grant County, Ga., for Thanksgiving, she hopes to steer clear of the police, especially Det. Lena Adams, whom she blames for the murder of her husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver. Yet when college student Allison Spooner is found dead in a lake and a local boy, Tommy Braham, is arrested for the murder, Sara reluctantly agrees to consult. The investigation soon spirals out of control after Tommy dies in custody. When Sara calls in Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent Will Trent from Atlanta to take over the case, the local police greet Will’s arrival with suspicion. Will must weigh Sara’s personal vendetta against Detective Adams with the facts of the case, which grow more confusing the deeper he digs into the small county’s secrets.If you would like to enter the running for one of our five copies of Broken, you need only send your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to write “Broken Contest” in the subject line. Entries will be accepted between now and midnight this coming Sunday, June 27. Five winners will be chosen at random, and their names will be listed on this page the following day.
Sorry, but this contest is open only to U.S. residents.
