# Here's the publisher's description about Linwood BARCLAY's NO SAFE HOUSE:
THERE ARE SOME HOUSES YOU SHOULD NEVER GO INTO. EVEN YOUR OWN.
Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that night are still haunting them. Terry's wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to permanently ruin her Relationship with them. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents' needless overprotection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of a local retired couple.
But when Grace follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive...
# Now, here's an excerpt from a letter by Michael ROBOTHAM about LIFE OR DEATH:
"(...) Life or Death, a story that I've nurtured and turned over in my mind for more than twenty years --ever since I read a newspaper account of a man who had served a long prison sentence, but escaped the day before he was due to be released.
Why, I asked myself --what could possibly be the reason?
It took me years to come up with an answer and even longer before I felt I had the skills to tell the story properly. I needed to practice. I needed to learn. I needed to get better.
(...) It's a love story and a prison story and a heart-stopping account of one man's refusal to surrender. More importantly, it's the book that I was meant to write."
NO SAFE HOUSE by Linwood BARCLAY will be officially published this coming Tuesday, and is a softcover copy; LIFE OR DEATH by Michael ROBOTHAM is an advance reader's copy (with a gorgeous cover) and will be published later this week in UK/Australia (but only on October 7th in Canada, and in March 2015 in the US). My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
To be eligible to win, you need to be 18 years or older and live in Canada or the US.
