In My Mailbox

Getting books in the mail over the holidays is better than any other time of year. It's like your mailbox loves you and wants you to be happy by getting these lovely presents. So how does my mailbox love me... let me count the ways... a signed ARC of Michael Palmer's new book, The Last Surgeon. Can't wait! Let's see what it's all about...

The official patter:
"Michael Palmer’s latest novel pits a flawed doctor against a ruthless psychopath, who has made murder his art form. Dr. Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from PTSD—post traumatic stress disorder—spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless and disenfranchised in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his war buddy Umberto Vasquez, who was plucked from the streets by the military four years ago for a secret mission and has not been seen since.

Psych nurse Jillian Coates wants to find her sister’s killer. She does not believe that Belle Coates, an ICU nurse, took her own life, even though every bit of evidence indicates that she did—every bit save one. Belle has left Jillian a subtle clue that connects her with Nick Garrity.

Together, Nick and Jillian determine that one-by-one, each of those in the operating room for a fatally botched case is dying. Their discoveries pit them against genius Franz Koller--the highly-paid master of the “non-kill”—the art of murder that does not look like murder. As Doctor and nurse move closer to finding the terrifying secret behind these killings, Koller has been given a new directive: his mission will not be complete until Jillian Coates and Garrity, the last surgeon, are dead."

But you ask, what could be better than getting an ARC!?! Well, the answer to that is a signed first edition! That's right, besides reviewing the book, there's going to be a giveaway! Free book for one lucky reader of my blog. So keep an eye to Strange & Random Happenstance! Can't wait, need something now? How about the book's prologue? So sink you teeth in and get cosy, for a little mystery and mayhem over the holidays!


Sounds like a very good book!!
