Scandal! Outrage! Protest!



Not only is this beautiful bear being held hostage, but they're threatening to shoot him! Help SAVE THE BEAR!

Oh, and btw, I've had the please* of reading THE FEVER KILL already, and here's an excerpt from my summary:

"This is a classic story of a man who must confront his demons before he can move forward in his life, but Piccirilli goes beyond that, to show the ultimate futility of trying to settle old scores while you compound problems from the past with new mistakes. Through Crease, I could understand the sound logic behind many flawed choices people make, a logic Crease can’t argue with, as much as he tries. No trite or contrived twists, the story is so natural you feel you should have seen what was coming, but didn’t. The writing is superb, the suspense is intense, and Piccirilli caps it off with one of the best endings ever. One of the best reads of the year."

So what are you waiting for? Go get yours from the Horror Mall and have a shot at winning the bear.

And this one's for Brian.



* Of course, that should be pleasure. The 'u' ad 'r' went on strike, for some reason.

Really? You guys have a prime minister? Wow. Huh. That's...weird.

And yes, the teddy bear promo is quite disturbing and brilliant. Only the Pic.

Well, you know what they say about American beer, Norby...

Ha Angie.

I love the promo. And it makes perfect sense if you've read the book. Pic rocks.
