Surprise Book Giveaway - Volk's Shadow (5 WINNERS)

Sunday, April 20, 2008


Surprise!! Surprise!! Here's an unexpected book giveaway to whet your literary appetites!

(Come back tomorrow for a Joshilyn Jackson Book(s) Giveaway!)

The Washington Post called Brent Ghelfi's first book 'Volk's Game' : “State of the art… an impressive debut.”

Newsday said : “Moving at breakneck speed through Moscow, St. Petersburg and Manhattan, leaving a slippery trail of body parts and exploded vehicles, Ghelfi handles the conventions of his genre like a pro. The violent derring-do is anchored in a portrait of contemporary Russia that is compelling and brutal on its own terms.”

And now you can enter to win the next book in this thrilling series, "Volk's Shadow" set to release in June 2008. There will be 5 LUCKY WINNERS!

Book Description

An international cabal drives Volk back to blood-soaked Chechnya, where he confronts an old nemesis and reunites with his lost love in this gripping sequel to the acclaimed series debut.

Volk's Shadow finds Colonel Alexei Volkovoy — covert agent of the Russian army and major player in the Moscow underworld—once again struggling to stay afloat in the swirling currents of Russian political and economic intrigue. This time, however, he is without his sidekick and lover, the ethereal Valya Novaskaya.

Aching for the soul mate he pushed away, Volk begins to doubt himself, becoming even more detached from the brutality of his actions. When he takes out his inner pain on the wrong man, he gains a powerful enemy in the highest reaches of the Kremlin, and only after he travels back to Chechnya to eliminate his old nemesis, Abreg, is Volk’s debt finally repaid.

About the Author
