The reviews are early again this week but this time I'm going to be away for two weeks. I hope to get some reviews and blog posts up soon-ish after my return in October.
I love the witty Sergeant Studer series written by Friedrich Glauser, the latest to be translated, is The Chinaman; Reviewer Geoff Jones says that Robert Goddard shows no sign of running out of steam in his nineteenth novel Name to a Face; after reading Norman Price's glowing review of this month's competition prize, Days of Atonement by Michael Gregorio do enter the competition detailed below and Maxine Clarke reviews Dominique Manotti's first novel, Rough Trade, giving her reasons why she found it "an excellent crime novel".
Faber have kindly donated five signed copies of Days of Atonement by Michael Gregorio to Euro Crime website and blog visitors. There are no geographical restrictions and the closing date is 30 September 2007
Just answer the following simple question and email the correct answer and your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org putting 'Competition Gregorio blog' in the subject line. Please note only one entry per household will be entered in the draw.
