Win a Copy of Marple: Twelve New Mysteries!


I hope you're all ready for a giveaway because I am! 
In an attempt to reduce the pile of books here on my desk, I'm going to give away a hardcover edition of Marple: Twelve New Mysteries. If you click on the link in the book's title, you'll be taken to my review, which will tell you how much I enjoyed twelve modern writers' takes on Agatha Christie's best sleuth, Miss Marple. (At the very bottom of the review, you'll also see the list of authors.) One of my favorite stories in this collection was nominated for an award.

Let me share a little more about the book before I get down to the contest rules.

Here's the book one of you will win.


"Jane Marple is an elderly lady from St Mary Mead who possesses an uncanny knack for solving even the most perplexing puzzles. Now, for the first time in 45 years, Agatha Christie’s beloved character returns to the page for a globe-trotting tour of crime and detection.

Join Marple as she travels through her sleepy English village and around the world. In St Mary Mead, a Christmas dinner is interrupted by unexpected guests; the Broadway stage in New York City is set for a dangerous improvisation; bad omens surround an untimely death aboard a cruise ship to Hong Kong; and a bestselling writer on holiday in Italy is caught in a nefarious plot. These and other crimes committed in the name of love, jealousy, blackmail, and revenge are ones that only the indomitable Jane Marple can solve.

Bringing a fresh twist to the hallmarks of a classic Agatha Christie mystery, these twelve esteemed writers have captured the sharp wit, unique voice, and droll ingenuity of the deceptively demure detective. A triumphant celebration of Christie’s legacy and essential reading for crime lovers, Marple is a timely reminder why Jane Marple remains one of the most famous detectives of all time."
