Bloggy Giveaway Carnival - The Bible Salesman by Clyde Edgerton

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival
Button
This Giveaway is part of the huge Bloggy Giveaways Carnival that's happening this week. If you see posting's a bit down till the weekend, that's the reason for it. Find more details over at Bloggy Giveaways.

Thanks to Hachette Book Group USA, I have 2 much-anticipated books to give away. Don't forget to enter my other Bloggy Book giveaway - here.

This giveaway is for The Bible Salesman by Clyde Edgerton (releasing August 11th)
Preston Clearwater has been a criminal since stealing two chain saws and 1600 pairs of aviator sunglasses from the Army during the Second World War. Back on the road in post-war North Carolina, a member of a car-theft ring, he picks up hitch-hiking Henry Dampier, an innocent nineteen-year-old Bible salesman. Clearwater immediately recognizes Henry as just the associate he needs--one who will believe Clearwater is working as an F.B.I. spy; one who will drive the cars Clearwater steals as Clearwater follows along in another car at a safe distance. Henry joyfully sees a chance to lead a dual life as Bible salesman and a G-man.

During his hilarious and scary adventures we learn of Henry's fundamentalist youth, an upbringing that doesn't prepare him for his new life. As he falls in love and questions his religious training, Henry begins to see he's being used--that the fun and games are over, that he is on his own in a way he never imagined.
The giveaway is open only to US & Canada and will end midnight CST of August 1st.

  5. Love this contest idea! What fun to see what others are reading...

    One of my lastest favorites is:
    Obsession, Deceit and Really Dark Chocolate by Kyra Davis

    It is the third of this series. Kyra has really started to define these characters and it was a joy to read. I can not wait until she comes out with the forth. She had a fun lead in to what could be an amusing story for these characters.
