Book Giveaway

I found a terrific copy of Jack Higgins' Dark Side of the Street in a thrift shop and as a celebration of the new blog--the one you're reading--I want to run a contest to give it away. Dark Side of the Street is the fifth of six novels Jack Higgins wrote in the 1960s that chronicle the adventures of super spy Paul Chavesse. It was originally published in 1967 under the moniker Martin Fallon, a name you will read occasionally in some of Higgins' other work, and this particular copy was published in the 1980s by Signet. It is one of two Paul Chavesse novels that are out-of-print in the United States. The other out-of-print Chavesse novel, Midnight Never Comes, was reworked and published in the early-1990s as On Dangerous Ground.

If you are interested in entering the contest you need only do two things: 1) send an email to with a subject line that reads "Jack Higgins Giveaway" and include a mailing address where it can be sent, or if you prefer you can provide your mailing address when I give notice that you won; 2) complete the first task by 11:59 PM MDT, August 28, 2010.
