Giveaway: Every Fifteen Minutes & $25 Visa Gift Card

Summary: Dr. Eric Parrish is the Chief of the Psychiatric Unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife Alice, he is doing his best as a single Dad to his seven-year-old daughter Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his home life, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as Eric is. But when he takes on a new patient, Eric's entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it. That, plus his OCD and violent thoughts about a girl he likes makes Max a high risk patient. Max can't turn off the mental rituals he needs to perform every fifteen minutes that keep him calm. With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a "person of interest" himself. Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric's life? New York Times best selling author Lisa Scottoline's visceral thriller, Every Fifteen Minutes, brings you into the grip of a true sociopath and shows you how, in the quest to survive such ruthlessness, every minute counts. -- Macmillan Audio

I am super excited about the April 14th release of Lisa Scottoline's new novel EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES. I am a huge fan of her books, both her mysteries and her essay collections; and her latest book looks fantastic. I actually just received a copy of the audiobook yesterday, and I've already loaded it onto my phone so I can listen to it while I work out!

The audiobook version of EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES is read by George Newbern, a prominent voice-over performer and award winning narrator. It's 11 CDs and runs 13.5 hours. You can listen to a sound clip here. And you can watch the book trailer here:

Our book group at Westmoreland Hempfield Area Library is discussing Ms. Lively's "The House on Fortune Street" tomorrow evening at 6:30. Do you have any suggestions we should consider?
