CLOSED: January Book Club

Join The Dead Good Crime Book Group on Goodreads and read some of the most exciting and thrilling new releases in crime fiction.

Every month we’ll be looking at a different crime book, giving away copies and discussing what we’ve enjoyed about the book over on our Goodreads Group.

January’s Book:

The Witness by Simon Kernick

The Witness by Simon Kernick

January’s book is The Witness and we have 30 copies of the book to give away to members of our Goodreads group.

About the Book:

When Jane Kinnear sees her lover being murdered, she suddenly finds herself in danger. Taken to an anonymous police safe-house, it soon becomes clear that her lover was an MI5 informant with important information about an imminent terrorist attack.

DI Ray Mason of Counter Terrorism Command is a man with a controversial past, but his effectiveness at getting results means that he’s now been given the task of preventing the attack from taking place. But can he be trusted, and does he know more about the attack than he’s letting on?

In the safe-house, Jane is trying to piece together a description of her lover’s killer. But what she doesn’t know is that the killer has already found out who she is, and where she is hiding. And now he’s coming for her…

    I resubmitted because I didn’t see my name on page were I wrote I submitted so I Thought I’d done something wrong. So I then did it again. Got error messages about my zip code so I finally got it right but message then was if already submitted. So therein lay my dilemma.

    Yet to read one of his novels so hoping this will be the introduction to a new favorite author.

    Entered and now everything is crossed, as Simon is one of my all time favourite authors and have read all his books! Can’t wait to hear from you and many thanks for the opportunity, Kim
