I know the last few hours while I wasn't running a giveaway were hard on you all. Don't worry, here's a pretty book you can win! Michael Palmer, himself, is donating this lovely signed first edition of his new book, The Last Surgeon. I'd love to tell you what a great book it is, seeing as Michael sent me a lovely personalized ARC for myself, and I was so looking forward to reading a great mystery... only I can't... my Mom stole it from me! Yes, she saw the book and that was that as they say. It was pinched, pilfered, purloined... any of those lovely words to disguise the fact my Mom was so desperate for the new Michael Palmer book she stole from her only daughter! I think that right there is a good enough endorsement: I book you're willing to commit a crime to read! I hope you'll enjoy it as I sure hope to in the near future! So enter away, the competition runs from now till the minute before the book's release day, wouldn't want you rushing out into the cold February snow only to find out you won the book later! That would be unconscionable... maybe a little wickedly fun on my part, but, I'm in a giving mood.


The Prize:
A Signed 1st edition of Michael Palmer's The Last Surgeon.

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 Gillian 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 Gillian a subtle clue that connects her with Nick Garrity.

Together, Nick and Gillian 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 Gillian Coates and Garrity, the last surgeon, are dead."
