    Medical Thriller “Yellow Death” by Alex Lettau – Two chances to win a signed copy 

    Roundtable pic Because the war on drugs is not going well, the DEA initiates a secret project mixing a lethal Venezuelan hepatitis virus into heroin, rationalizing that a few deaths from a new type of hepatitis will deter drug abuse in many. When Dr. Kris Jensen, a medical detective with the CDC’s Hepatitis Division, arrives in Mississippi to investigate rapidly fatal hepatitis in two drug users, she doesn’t expect to become a victim. Two days after an accidental needlestick, she realizes that she is now infected with this unknown lethal virus and has only five days left to find answers to its origin. Jensen’s investigation takes her into the depths of a web of drug use and revenge murders, tracked by assassins who are determined to keep her from finding the truth.

    Win a copy of Athenian Blues, the 1st in the Stratos Gazis crime series 

    Athenian Blues

    Stratos hates being called a hitman. A conscientious fixer is what he is. He fixes problems that very few can deal with. Things that people are willing to pay handsomely to get done, without wanting to know about the small stuff. Stratos is their man, provided that his meticulous research shows him that the targets deserve their fate.

    But now, in the midst of the Greek economic and political crisis, this film-noir loving assassin takes on the highest-profile case of his career. He finds himself caught between the most beloved lawyer in Greece, known as “the guardian of the poor”, and his actress wife, the most desirable woman in the country. They are both in dire need of his killing services, but which one is telling the truth? Helped by three childhood friends, Costas Dragas, a homicide cop, Teri, a transsexual high-class hooker and Maria, the passion of his life, he discovers that truth, in shattered loves and broken families, is, as ever, a relative thing.

    “Noir fans will look forward to the next installment.” – Publishers Weekly

    “Stratos narrates with bare honesty and unexpected wit, revealing Athens’ gritty side and introducing readers to his endearing and resourceful tribe of lifelong friends.” – Booklist

    “Will attract fans of international crime fiction with an edge. Admirers of Lawrence Block’s “Hit Man” series may also want to try this book about a killer with a conscience.” – Library Journal

    “Twists and turns will keep you riveted to the end. Pol Koutsakis’ second Stratos Gazis mystery, Baby Blue, will be published next year by Bitter Lemon. I can’t wait.” – EuroLitNetwork

    To enter, simply leave a comment below. To double your chances of winning, post within your comment the answer to the question: “Teri, a high-class transsexual lady of the night, plays an important role in Athenian Blues. Where does her name come from?” 

    The contest will end Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017 at 12 a.m. PDT.  The winner will be chosen at random.

      “Teri, a high-class transsexual lady of the night, plays an important role in Athenian Blues. Where does her name come from?” I believe the name means “late summer” or “summer harvest”?

      Sounds like it has a lot of international intrigue. Since this book takes place in Greece I’m thinking that Teri’s name may be derived from the Greek island of Therasia.

    • Robert Grieco 2:09 pm on September 26, 2017 Permalink

      My fingers are crossed for this one!
      BTW: “Teri, a high-class transsexual lady of the night, plays an important role in Athenian Blues. Where does her name come from?” I believe it comes from Ancient Greek Women in Athens.

      Many thanks to everyone for your participation in the contest and your support. First, the answer to the question: the name Teri comes from the Greek name Lefteris, as some of you correctly wrote – it was Teri’s name before she had the sex change operation.
      The winner of the giveaway is Marvin Carter. Marvin, congratulations – please send an email to books@bitterlemonpress.com noting that you won the contest and give the publisher an address where they can send you the book. Enjoy!
      Look out next spring for Baby Blue, the 2nd book in the series – we will have another contest here for that one.

    Death in Nostalgia City: two chances to win a signed copy 

    Enter with a comment below for a chance to win one of two signed copies of Death in Nostalgia City.  Winner will be selected Oct. 6, 2017.

    Murder at a retro theme park

    Nost. City Brite-title-web-optiminzed.Nostalgia City theme park re-creates a small town from the 1970s in every detail: cars, music, rides, clothes, food, shops, restaurants, fads—the works. But when rides are sabotaged and tourists killed and injured, an unlikely duo is persuaded to investigate.  Lyle Deming is an anxiety-prone ex-cop, now driving a Nostalgia City cab to escape the stress of police work.  Kate Sorensen is a 6’ 2½” former college basketball star, now theme park PR director.  She must play spin doctor and help investigate at the same time.

    The two likeable characters slowly learn each other’s strengths and work together. Their investigation of corporate greed and murder lead them from the Arizona theme park to downtown Boston where they go undercover at a giant conglomerate to find the evidence they need to save the park.

    The book is mixture of mystery and suspense.  It’s filled with twists and turns and interim puzzles the protagonists must solve—and action, a little violence, and challenges that put the protagonists in peril.

    Award winner at the 2015 San Francisco Book Festival.

    “The book pulled me in from the very beginning and never let me go.”

    Two chances to win a signed copy of A Promise to Kill, by Erik Storey 

    A Promise to Kill

    From tha-promise-to-kill-smaller_hre author dubbed by Jeffery Deaver “a born storyteller” whose first novel Nothing Short of Dying was hailed as “exceptional,” “a rollercoaster read,” and “adrenaline-fueled” by publications on both sides of the Atlantic, this is Erik Storey’s next entry in the Clyde Barr series, a locomotive-paced brawler that has its hero teaming with besieged members of a Native American reservation to thwart outlaw bikers who are putting hundreds of thousands of lives at risk.

    Clyde Barr, the drifter with lethal skills, is alone again, wandering the highways of the American West in search of something to believe in. As summer turns to autumn, he trades his car for a horse and heads for the mountains, planning to clear his head and regain his edge with some hunting. But when he runs across an elderly sick man—a Ute Indian from a nearby reservation—Clyde’s dream of solitude is quickly dashed.

    On the reservation, Clyde finds the old man’s daughter, Lawana, and grandson, Taylor, as well as a group of menacing bikers called Reapers running wild in the economically depressed, half-abandoned village. Gripped by the desire to do good in a hard world, Clyde offers to stay on Lawana’s ranch to help out until her father is released from the hospital. He controls himself around the bikers, even when he sees them harass a few Native American women—but when the Reapers attack a local boy Clyde has to do something. As tensions rise between the locals and the Reapers, Clyde’s efforts to protect the reservation become a fight for his, Lawana’s, and Taylor’s lives. And then the stakes ratchet up even more.

    In the remote Utah desert, surrounded by enemies, with no law enforcement presence, and with communication effectively cut off, Clyde must find a way to save his new friends, defeat the gang, and, hopefully, escape with his own skin intact. A Promise to Kill is an edge-of-the-seat thriller, pushing its no-hold-barred hero to new levels of improvisation and bare-knuckled blunt force.

    Erik Storey is a former ranch hand, wilderness guide, dogsled musher, and hunter.  He spent his childhood summers on his great-grandfather’s homestead or in a remote cabin in Colorado’s Flat Tops wilderness.  He has earned a number of sharpshooter and marksman qualifications. He and his family live in Grand Junction, Colorado.

    Please just enter a comment below for a chance to win! Two commenters will be randomly chosen. The contest ends August 14th, 2017. To learn more, please visit http://www.erikstoreybooks.com or check out Twitter or Facebook.

    Win a Signed Copy of ATTICUS (Sci-Fi Thriller) by J.B. Manas 

    Enter with a comment below for a chance to win a signed copy (and/or Kindle version if you choose) of Atticus, the the new sci-fi thriller from ITW author J.B. Manas, co-author of The Kronos Interference (named to Kirkus Reviews Best of 2012).


    ATTICUS

    WITHIN ONE MAN’S PAST LIES THE WHOLE WORLD’S FUTURE

    SuspendAtticused for negotiating with an armed lunatic, rookie cop Marti Coldwater is feeling lost and unappreciated. But her day is about to get a whole lot worse when her car is run off the road by a strange, falling military craft and she rescues the lone passenger—a young British amnesiac who thinks it’s 1944.

    Soon, she and her newfound companion are relentlessly pursued by murderous men in suits and a sinister Nordic assassin with a singular mission—capture the stranger and kill anyone who’s seen him.

    When she uncovers a plot threatening the entire planet, Marti is thrown into a world of highly classified government programs and astonishing alien secrets. Now, her only hope of saving the world is to try to recover the memories of a man who may be the most dangerous of all—the man who calls himself Atticus.

    In this riveting sci-fi thriller from J.B. Manas, co-author of The Kronos Interference, stakes and tension are high as a stranger arrives with no memory and a deadly secret that could wipe out the entire human race. The Kronos Interference earned a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, who named it to their Best of 2012, calling the book “impressively original” and a “tour de force.” Atticus follows Manas’s penchant for writing fast-paced fiction that blends history, science, and adventure into a fun, twisty thrill-ride—this time from the suburbs of Bucks County, Pennsylvania to the volcanic hills of Iceland.


    Reviews

    “ATTICUS captured my imagination immediately and I was off on a spaceship-speed ride, disbelief immediately suspended. Interweaving contemporary law enforcement, government agencies, Antarctica, science fiction, and extraterrestrials, this is a “I’ve got to read this in one sitting ’cause I can’t stop” story.”

    Into the Abyss Reviews – By Mallory Heart Recommends

    “Fast-paced sci-fi fun with timely application. Atticus is a moving story that doesn’t just move, it runs to its conclusion in the best possible way… [Manas] wields words like a master storyteller, not giving away too much while still giving you the complete picture… Atticus is not only brilliant, it’s a timely read, as evil fills our social media and the struggle for good seems hopeless. It isn’t.”

    AgentPalmer.com

    “Move over Alfred Hitchcock! If you love the master of suspense, you will love Atticus. I guarantee you will be spellbound as the reluctant hero encounters a mysterious visitor and gets caught up in an adventure filled with twists, turns, and thrilling suspense, culminating in the final set piece of an Icelandic volcano.”

    Paula Berinstein, Story Consultant, Author, and producer/host of The Writing Show podcast

    Science thriller THE HAN AGENT by Amy Rogers 

    Coming September 5, another Crichton-esque science thriller novel from ITW member Amy Rogers, author of Petroplague and Reversion
    book cover THE HAN AGENT by Amy Rogers

    Summary of The Han Agent: In the 1930s, Japanese scientists committed heinous crimes in their quest for the ultimate biological weapon.

    The war ended. Their mission did not.

    Eighty years later, Japanese-American scientist Amika Nakamura won’t let rules stand between her and scientific glory. When the ambitious young virologist defies a ban on the genetic manipulation of influenza, she’s expelled from the university. Desperate to save her career, she accepts a position with a pharmaceutical company in Tokyo. Soon after, a visit to a disputed island entangles her in a high-profile geopolitical struggle between Japan and China. Applying her singular expertise with bird flu in a risky experiment may be the only way out. Little does she know that Japanese ultranationalists and a legacy of unpunished war crimes lurk in the shadows, manipulating people, politics, and science.

    But DNA doesn’t lie. Amika uncovers a shocking truth: a deadly virus is about to put the “gene” in genocide.

    “Amy Rogers’s latest medical thriller, THE HAN AGENT, is as exciting as it is frighteningly realistic. It could be tomorrow’s headline. Here is a story fraught with tension, sudden explosive action, and threaded through with scientific accuracy and speculation that will leave you stunned. Read it…if only to prepare yourself for what might soon become true.”
    James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Seventh Plague

    “In a stunning ‘what-if’ author-scientist Amy Rogers resurrects the idea of Unit 731, Japan’s notorious wartime biological weapons division, weaving together a diabolical tale of science, genocide, and modern-day bio-terror. Sobering, suspenseful, and absolutely chilling.”
    Barry Lancet, award-winning author of The Spy Across the Table and Tokyo Kill

      At Border’s Bookstore years ago, I heard Tess Gerritsen talk about how she got into writing medical thrillers. I’ve read her book, Never Say Die and sure enough, it had me on the edge of my seat flipping the pages fast. As a nurse, the medical/scientific field holds a lot of interest seeing how true to life it is.

    • Carole Fortier 7:26 pm on June 16, 2017 Permalink

      A long time ago I read “Coma” by Robin Cook. To this day, this book has stayed as one of the best medical/scientific thrillers I have ever read.

      This book sounds fantastic! I have read all of Robin Cook’s and Michael Crichton’s books. It would be so hard to pick a favorite. The Andromeda Strain was one that was stuck with me.

    • Marilyn Meade-Moore 3:20 pm on July 1, 2017 Permalink

      “Coma” a long time ago. Would like to get into this genre again.

    Win a Signed Copy of Re-Released Thriller “Saving Hope!” 

    SAVING HOPE 300 dpi

    I will provide a copy to two commenters who post below by April 17, 2017. For US residents, I will send a signed paperback copy. For those outside the US, I will send an ebook.

    Steve Berry, NYT Bestselling author, describes Saving Hope as “a tantalizing premise that toys with the most basic of emotions—a parent’s drive to save their child.”

    In one of Siberia’s formerly closed cities, Alexandra Pavlova, an unemployed microbiologist, struggles to save her daughter’s life. When she turns to Vladimir, her oldest friend, for help, she’s drawn into Russia’s underworld. His business dealings with the Iranians come to the attention of Sergei Borisov, an FSB (formerly the KGB) agent. Alexandra finds herself joining forces with Sergei to stop the export of a deadly virus in a race to save both her daughter and the world.

    Good luck!
