BBAW Giveaway #5

I am celebrating BBAW with 5 giveaways this week, one each day, 4 books by Australian authors, and one related to Agatha Christie.

Today's giveaway is THE NIGHT FERRY by Michael Robotham

Publisher's Blurb

Alisha Barba's dreams of being a detective were shattered when a murder suspect broke her back across a brick wall. Now on her feet again, with her police career in limbo, she receives a message from an old school friend, Cate Beaumont, who is eight months pregnant and in trouble. On the night they arrange to meet, Cate is mown down by a car that kills her husband instantly. As paramedics fight to save her life they discover there is no baby. Her pregnancy is an elaborate lie, a cruel deception. Why? What happened? As Alisha sets out to answer these questions she is drawn deeper and deeper into a dangerous quest that will take her from the East End of London to Amsterdam's red light district and into a murky underworld of sex trafficking, slavery and exploitation. A gripping thriller, with twists at every turn

To go into the draw for this book, you need to leave a comment and tell me something important about Michael Robotham. Your information should not repeat anything from this blog post, or from comments left prior to yours.

Michael's next novel THE WRECKAGE will have a new US publisher.
I certainly don't want to miss this opportunity Kerrie. Thanks for the fun.

I would love to win this one!

Sadly, only one of his books has been translated into Danish. (Not that I prefer them in Danish, but he might get a wider audience if ...)

Kerrie - I would love to win this one, too (who wouldn't?). In an interview with Craig at Crime Watch, Robotham has said that his favourite fictional sleuth is Dave Robicheaux.

Michael Robotham was supposed to come over here for the Christchurch Festival, and I was supposed to be on a crime fiction panel with him, but nature intervened in a big way! That was important to me.

Kerrie said...

Kerrie, not sure how to leave a comment about Michael Robotham for the Night Ferry (could not find a button), so thought I would try this way. Fact: born November 1960 and won the Ned Kelly award in 2005 for Lost.

Michael Robotham's newest book is called Bleed For Me which is a follow-up to his book Shatter, a Ned Kelly award winner and a favorite book of a friend of mine. :)

Prior to being a ghostwriter he was a journalist. His work took him to the UK and the US.

Helen Kiker said...

Michael Robotham can most often be found working in his 'pit of despair' (basment office)on Sydney's northern beaches where he funds the extravagant lifestyles of a wife and three daughters.

Thanks for the BBAW giveaway, Michael became the best-selling pseudonymous author of ten "autobiographies" of people in the arts, Military and sport.
