It’s possible that some readers didn’t spot the book-giveaway opportunity at the bottom of Ali Karim’s recent piece about Andrew Gross’ The One Man, an Alistair MacLean-esque thriller set during World War II. That might explain why participation in the contest has been rather low thus far. It certainly can’t be because Rap Sheet followers don’t like free books. I know that’s not true.
So here again are the specifics:
Gross’ publisher, St. Martin’s Minotaur, is offering three free copies of The One Man to Rap Sheet readers. Entering this drawing is simple. First, answer one small question:
Which of these Alistair MacLean novels is not a World War II thriller?
(1) HMS Ulysses
(2) Where Eagles Dare
(3) Puppet on a Chain
(4) The Guns of Navarone
Then e-mail your answer, along with your postal address (no P.O. boxes accepted), to firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to type “One Man Contest” in the subject line. Competition entries will be accepted between now and midnight on Friday, September 9. The three winners will be chosen completely at random.
Sorry, but at the publisher’s request, this contest is open only to residents of the United States and Canada.
Finally, please be sure to follow all of the instructions given here. Failure to answer our question or to submit your mailing address will automatically disqualify your entry.
