This has been a fantastic week of exploring detectives and the worlds in which they live. And the best part is that we're not done yet. Before I tell you about the great line-up we have today, I wanted to remind you that tomorrow I will be posting the form for you to enter your scavenger hunt responses if you are participating in that contest. If you didn't get those questions, you can find them here.
I'm adding another contest today. I have a book from two of our guest authors: Louise Penny's THE BRUTAL TELLING and Cara Black's MURDER IN THE PALAIS ROYAL. Both are ARC copies. To be entered to win one of these books, simply return here by midnight (Eastern) on Sunday and leave me a comment with at least one book you found this week that you are adding to your TBR list. You can talk about as many as you like, but you have to tell me about at least one. I also need you to leave me an email so I can contact you if you win. I'll draw two names from the entries. The first person drawn will get their choice of books and the second person drawn will get the other book.
Today is the FINAL day to get your vote in for the CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND of the "World's Favorite Detective" tournament. The champion detective and the champion bracket contestant will be announced on Sunday.
Also don't forget that you can win a complete set of the "Beauty Killer" books from Jenn's Bookshelves. If you haven't been over to see her review of EVIL AT HEART and enter the contest, you can do that here.
And the contest at The Drowning Machine has one more chance for you to earn an entry today, so don't miss out on your last chance to win that $35 gift certificate from Aunt Agatha's!
That brings us to today's itinerary.
On her blog today, L.J. Sellers will be reviewing A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO DIE: SOUTH AFRICA.
Over at Savvy Verse and Wit, Serena has a review of James Patterson's CROSS COUNTRY.
Chris will be covering the legendary James Crumley at Stumbling the Walk.
At My Friend Amy's Blog, Amy will be introducing us to Police Inspector Shunsuke Honma from Japan.
Naomi is welcoming Earl Emerson for an interview at The Drowning Machine. Make sure you go over and say "hi."
Rob has another opportunity for you to win! At Books are Like Candy Cord, he's going to be talking about MAHU VICE and Honolulu, plus he has a copy of MAHU VICE to give away!
Poncho has some recommendations for follow-up Mexican noir at Elogios.
Lesa's sharing more of New Mexico and Steven Havill with us at Lesa's Book Critiques.
And here, I'm letting Craig Johnson take over the blog because I'm a little tired today! No, really, he's going to review Charlie Huston for us. How very cool!
We still have a few things coming up tomorrow and I hope you'll check back, but I really want to take this opportunity today to thank all the bloggers who participated in this theme week. I can't thank them enough for their time and enthusiasm. They helped promote the week on their blogs, Twitter, Facebook, word of mouth. They put together fantastic posts and found fascinating detectives. My worst nightmare was that I would be hearing crickets this week, but it's been just the opposite. There's been so much clamor, and my TBR list has grown ridiculously. Thank you to everyone who participated, and also thank you to everyone who stopped in to read and follow along!
