Giveaway: The Rule of Nine by Steve Martini

Thanks to William Morrow, I have one copy of The Rule of Nine by Steve Martini to giveaway. I received the giveaway with my own coveted copy yesterday and I would love to get it into one of my reader's hands. It goes on sale on Tuesday, June 1 and you could have it soon after. Here's a little more about it. More information about the giveaway is below.   I will be reading it in the next week or so and posting my review.  I love Steve Martini and can't wait to read this one.


The Rule of Nine by Steve Martini
Publisher:  William Morrow
Publish Date:  June 1, 2010
Hardcover, 400 pages
Paul Madriani Book # 11

About the Book:

The Old Weatherman dreams of a plan that could be his swan song, an attack to drive a stake through the heart of the right-wing establishment and bury it for good. Now he's found the money, the ideal weapon, and the professional who knows how to use it. And he has set his sights on the perfect target at the very seat of the United States government, in the heart of downtown Washington. It will be a strike heard round the world.
San Diego defense attorney Paul Madriani is still reeling from the trauma of a near nuclear explosion he helped avert at the naval base in Coronado. Threatened by federal authorities to keep quiet about the close call in California, Madriani is now faced with a new problem in the steely-eyed and alluring Joselyn Cole, a weapons control expert, who believes he has to go public with what he knows if they have any hope of stopping a similar event in the future.

But Madriani has been linked to the murder of a Washington, D.C., political staffer, and authorities believe a shadowy figure called Liquida—a hired assassin known as "the Mexicutioner"—may be responsible. And this man, as the last survivor of the attack in San Diego, might be driven by a bizarre and horrifying star-crossed vendetta, and might now be looking for Madriani himself. What Madriani and Cole begin to fear is that the Old Weatherman and this madman have joined forces and intend to pull the city—and the country—into a vortex of terror before Madriani and Cole can find answers to the enigma that is "the rule of nine."

The Giveaway:

One copy of The Rule of Nine by Steve Martini provided by the publisher, William Morrow, that I will mail out to the winner within a week of the close of the giveaway.  The winner will be notified by email and posted on the website and will have 48 hours to contact me with their address before I draw another name.  Giveaway ends June 3, 2010.

To Enter:

Simply comment.  Tell me if you've read Steve Martini before or just say enter me.  Additional entries for tweeting (1 per day), following me in any way (twitter, google follower, rss, email, see sidebar to follow), and 5 additional entries for telling me your favorite book you read in May.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry (I'll count the 5 entries for your favorite book in May, so you don't need to leave that 5 times).  All comments will be randomized and then I will pick a number using random.org.

Thanks!  Look for another giveaway coming tomorrow and some housekeeping of some drawings I still need to do.  I took a small hiatus but I am back now so if you are expecting a book know it will be coming very soon.  Thanks for your patience - life just gets in the way sometimes.  :)
