Giveaway: Syndrome E

Summary: Lucie Henebelle, single mother and beleaguered detective, has just about enough on her plate when she receives a panicked phone call from an ex-lover who has developed a rare disorder after watching an obscure film from the 1950s. With help from the brooding Inspector Franck Sharko, who is exploring the movie’s connection to five unearthed corpses at a construction site, Lucie begins to strip away the layers of what may be the most disturbing film ever made. With more lives on the line, Sharko and Lucie struggle to solve this terrifying mystery before it’s too late. In a high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled hunt that jumps from France to Canada, Egypt to Rwanda, and beyond, this astonishing page-turner, with cinematic echoes from The Manchurian Candidate and the Bourne series, will keep you guessing until the very end. -- Penguin Books

I seriously hope you read the description above for SYNDROME E by Franck Thilliez (Translated by Mark Polizzotti) because it's a good one. I was extremely intrigued by the description of this book because it sounds so unusual, and I admit I was curious to see if the author could pull it off. (I'm assuming he does since this thriller is already an international bestseller and is being made into a movie.)

I haven't yet read SYNDROME E, although I did start it last night, and I have to say that I'm hooked. I have a feeling that I'm going to fly through this book. So far, I love the characters and the premise, and the pace of the writing is really quick. I hope to have a review for you in the very near future... before the giveaway ends!

And that brings me to the giveaway....
