The Year of Mysterious Giveaways (March)

It's a new month and that means that it is time for another mysterious giveaway. If you haven't heard, I am calling this year The Year of the Mystery. I created my first mystery challenge. I'm reading more mysteries. My guest reviewers are reading more mysteries. I thought it would be only fitting to give away some wonderful mysteries. So here we are, The Year of the Mysterious Giveaways (insert spooky music here).

This time around the publisher has offered to give away a copy of Thieves of Darkness by Richard Doetsch. I LOVED The 13th Hour by him. Read it and reviewed it last year! This one sounds just as thrilling!

Here's the description from Amazon:

Michael St. Pierre, a reformed master thief, thinks he has left his criminal days far behind him, when he receives word that his best friend, Simon has been locked up and sentenced to die in a brutal desert prison. Breaking into jail for the first time in his checkered career, Michael is stunned to discover that his new girlfriend, KC, is connected to Simon’s case.

With a madman on their heels, the three adventurers make their way to Istanbul in search of the mysterious artifact that landed Simon behind bars in the first place: a map containing the location of a holy place lost to the mists of time, a repository of knowledge and treasure predating Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Testing their courage and wits, Michael and his team are forced to plot a series of daring thefts that take them inside some of the city’s most celebrated (and heavily guarded) sanctums, from the imperial harem of Topkapi Palace to the tombs of the Hagia Sophia itself. More than priceless artifacts are at stake—the lives of loved ones and perhaps the fate of humanity itself hang in the balance.

A globe-trotting adventure that wings from the glittering banks of the Bosporus to the highest peaks of the Himalayas, The Thieves of Darknessconfirms Richard Doetsch’s place as the modern-day master of pulse-pounding suspense.
