THE VICTORIA VANISHES
By Christopher Fowler
Hardback Edition ISBN 978-0-553-80502-4
It’s a case tailor-made for the Peculiar Crimes Unit. A lonely hearts killer is targeting middle-aged women at some of England’s most well-known pubs—including one torn down eighty years ago. What’s more, Arthur Bryant happened to see one of the victims only moments before her death at the pub that doesn’t exist. Indeed, this case is littered with clues that defy everything the veteran detectives know about the habits of serial killers, the methodology of crime, and the odds of making an arrest. Now, with the public on the verge of panic and their superiors determined to shut the PCU down for good, Detectives Bryant and May must rise to the occasion in defense of two great English traditions—the pub and the Peculiar Crimes Unit.
That’s easier said than done. A lost funeral urn, the eighteenth-century mystic Emanuel Swedenborg, the Knights Templars, the secret history of pubs, and the discovery of an astounding religious relic may be enough to convince one of the pair to take back his resignation letter. But with Bryant consulting a memory specialist and May encountering a brush with mortality, do the Peculiar Crimes Unit’s two living legends have enough life left to stop a murderous conspiracy…and a deadly cupid targeting one of their own.

I have never done a giveaway yet, but there is no time like the present, right?!
This will be a little different than most of the giveaways I've seen so far. I am giving away one of my own books. Read only once by me, like brand new. I love passing on books that I love and reading other books that others have loved and enjoyed. So there is a small catch with this giveaway... I have written my name in the front of the book with the year I read it and a couple words about how I enjoyed it. So..you have to do the same, write your first name - year - couple words of what you thought in it too and then give it away! Doesn't have to be on your blog (although that would be cool to start a blog book pass) you can give it to anyone. Just pass it on.
I am using Rafflecopter to do the giveaway, bear with me as I learn this stuff as I do it!
