Audio Book Giveaways!!! The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly

Thanks to Anna with Hatchette Book Group – I have 3 copies of The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly (audio book) to give away.

  • scarecrowForced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career.
    He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow’s so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.
    Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar–and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack’s.

    “Narrator Peter Giles delivers the crisp and compelling copy with a deadpan tone and a pace that advances like Patton through Italy. Scenes involving the stalking of McEvoy and Walling raise hairs at the back of the listener’s neck. Great characters and a satisfying ending cement Connelly’s place as one of the best crime novelists working today.”- AudioFile (Starred Review)

  • The Link
  • The Link
  • By Colin Tudge
  • For more than a century, scientists have raced to unravel the human family tree and have grappled with its complications. Now, with an astonishing new discovery, everything we thought we knew about primate origins could change. Lying inside a high-security vault, deep within the heart of one of the world’s leading natural history museums, is the scientific find of a lifetime – a perfectly fossilized early primate, older than the previously most famous primate fossil, Lucy, by forty-four million years.A secret until now, the fossil – “Ida” to the researchers who have painstakingly verified her provenance – is the most complete primate fossil ever found. Forty-seven million years old, Ida rewrites what we’ve assumed about the earliest primate origins. Her completeness is unparalleled – so much of what we understand about evolution comes from partial fossils and even single bones, but Ida’s fossilization offers much more than that, from a haunting “skin shadow” to her stomach contents. And, remarkably, knowledge of her discovery and existence almost never saw the light of day.With exclusive access to the first scientists to study her, the award-winning science writer Colin Tudge tells the history of Ida and her place in the world. A magnificent, cutting-edge scientific detective story followed her discovery, and The Link offers a wide-ranging investigation into Ida and our earliest origins. At the same time, it opens a stunningly evocative window into our past and changes what we know about primate evolution and, ultimately, our own.AVAILABLE IN AUDIO AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY

  1. I’ve recently got hooked on Audio Books – I’d love to try and win this one.

    And as far as my favorite author goes – it’s always been Stephen King even when he writes one of those ‘door stoppers’. But I would have to say my favorite author is also usually the one that I’m reading at the time.

  2. Opps – forgot my email address:

    merryweatherbookblog@gmail.com

    Thanks :D

  3. I have not had much time to read this year, as you know from my lack of attendance at book club this spring. I do have time to listen to audio books though. And hope to be back reading by the summer picnic.

    My favorite author is tough. Lately I would say I have been enjoying Jodi Piccoult, the story lines are usually thought provoking and she keeps my attention. I often borrow out her books when I am finished with them, a good sign of an enjoyable read.

    I will attempt to post a link to this site on my facebook, but I am not very good at this type of thing. I hope it works.

  4. i dont know if im to late since today is the 15th but i will post anyway :)
    This book/audio sounds really good.

    My favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. They are both Christian writers. But they have suspense in them too! All their books are just really good. I could never put them down

    my Name is stephanie and my email is sb631@aol.com

  5. HI Stephanie – you are not too late. We are running to midnight with this contest. It is 9:53 pm here currently.

    I too love both Peretti and Decker as Christian fiction authors.

  6. Hi Shelia, Got my email but wanted to stop by and again say Thank you : D
