Off to Paris, Armchair Style

One week after announcing The Rap Sheet’s latest book-giveaway contest, we finally have our winners. All four of them. That’s four lucky readers who will soon have copies of Craig McDonald’s new Hector Lassiter historical mystery, One True Sentence, in their hands. This is a fortunate quartet, indeed, for I’ve been reading One True Sentence during the last seven days, and it has pretty much everything I want to see in a work of crime fiction: a vividly presented setting (Paris in the 1920s), memorable characters (including Lassiter, Ernest Hemingway, and the enigmatic Brinke Devlin), and twists enough to twirl your hair.

Without further ado, then, here are the winners:

Jacqueline Flenner of Asheville, North Carolina
Michael S. Chong of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Peter Hegarty of Alameda, California
Susan Newby of McMinnville, Tennessee

Congratulations to all of the winners, who can rest assured that copies of One True Sentence will soon be flying out to their snail-mailboxes, courtesy of McDonald’s publisher, Minotaur Books.

And, please, don’t fret if you didn’t win this time. We have another giveaway competition launching very soon.
