Advanced readers copy of Acquainted with the Night by Piper Maitland.

MP3 audiobook of Deadly Defiance (A Stan Turner Mystery #10) by William Manchee. Volume 10 of the popular Stan Turner Mystery Series featuring legal sleuths Stan Turner and Paula Waters. This episode introduces a new addition to the attorney’s at Turner & Waters, Stan’s former secretary, Jodie Marshall, who has worked her way through college, finished law school and has now just passed the bar.

Thank you, William Manchee!

Advanced readers copy of I Am Half-Sick of Shadows (Flavia de Luce #4) by Alan Bradley. It’s Christmastime, and the precocious Flavia de Luce—an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry and a penchant for crime-solving—is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern.
Thank you, Ania!
