Giveaway: THE DEVIL AT YOUR DOOR by Eric Beetner

Thanks to publicist Wiley Saichek, I'm giving away a print paperback copy of The Devil at Your Door by Eric Beetner from Down & Out Books to a randomly-selected U.S. winner.

Lars and Shaine have returned to a quiet life on the islands, but for Lars there is unfinished business. When he gets information that will lead him to exact revenge on behalf of his young protégé, the young woman he’s grown to think of as a daughter, he decides to take action in secret.

When he lands in a hospital Shaine is called in from a thousand miles away and she must take the lead in the last job of Lars’ storied career of death for hire.

Facing his own aging body, Lars struggles to take a back seat to the youngster he has trained in his image. They’ll face a local drug boss along with an old enemy as they work to fire the last bullet they’ll ever need to—before one finds them first.


To enter the giveaway, email G_SO at YAHOO dot COM with subject line "Beetner Giveaway".

Deadline: Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Standard.

On Thursday, February, 15, I will email the winner and request a mailing address.

That was when a group of women passionately protesting Maggie’s imprisonment struck. They blew up a local dam, flooding the town of Everton and indirectly inspiring a hellish night of crime and chaos.

Fourteen of today’s most exciting contemporary crime writers will take you to the fictional town of Everton, with stories from criminals, cops, and civilians that explore the thin line between the rich and the poor, the insider and the outsider, the innocent and the guilty. Whether it’s a store owner grimly protecting his property from looters, an opportunistic servant who sees her time to strike, or two misguided youths taking their anger out against any available victim, The Night of the Flood is an intricate and…
