Clear Your Shelf Giveaway- Broken Harbor by Tana French

So are you looking for a nice read to cap off your summer? Or maybe you want something to cozy up with in the winter, with a nice mug of cocoa.  Bookhounds & I Am a Reader, Not a Writer is hosting their Clear Your Shelf Giveaway hop, and I'm joining in!

I love Tana French and Jolene from With A Little Help from My Friends got Broken Harbor for me when she was my Books and Bloggers swap partner earlier this year.  It was a great read.  Fast paced and even when you think you know how it all goes, there's a twist in there.    Here's Goodreads synopsis of Broken Harbor:
The mesmerizing fourth novel of the Dublin murder squad by New York Times bestselling author Tana French

Mick "Scorcher" Kennedy, the brash cop from Tana French’s bestselling Faithful Place, plays by the book and plays hard. That’s what’s made him the Murder squad’s top detective—and that’s what puts the biggest case of the year into his hands.

On one of the half-built, half-abandoned "luxury" developments that litter Ireland, Patrick Spain and his two young children are dead. His wife, Jenny, is in intensive care.

At first, Scorcher and his rookie partner, Richie, think it’s going to be an easy solve. But too many small things can’t be explained. The half dozen baby monitors, their cameras pointing at holes smashed in the Spains’ walls. The files erased from the Spains’ computer. The story Jenny told her sister about a shadowy intruder who was slipping past all the locks.

And Broken Harbor holds memories for Scorcher. Seeing the case on the news sends his sister Dina off the rails again, and she’s resurrecting something that Scorcher thought he had tightly under control: what happened to their family one summer at Broken Harbor,back when they were children.

With her signature blend of police procedural and psychological thriller, French’s new novel goes full throttle with a heinous crime, creating her most complicated detective character and her best book yet.
 Note: Even though this is technically the fourth book in the series, you don't need to have read the other three to follow it.

If you live in the US and you'd like win my gently used copy, all you have to do is leave me a book recommendation.  That's it, no following, no posting, no tweeting.  No fuss, no muss.  And you can check out what everyone else is giving away over at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Bookhounds or just click the Linky Tools link below...

  12. Just finished The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing. It's pretty thick and there's a lot to think about. I really liked it.

  13. I just read The Vacationers, but didn't feel there was much substance. It was a quick read, though. On the flip side, before that I read The Goldfinch, which was packed with messages about beauty and depression but was looooong. I think the best book I've read this summer was What Alice Forgot.

  20. I'm new to your blog as well. If you like great mysteries, read anything by Robert B. Parker. Be sure NOT to read anything written by those picking up the pen and writing AS him after his death. Their work is nothing like Parker's. Robert B. Parker was a man who knew how to cut a sentence down to the bare necessities and make it work.
