Remember how back during the not-so-balmy days of the summer I took part in the Transworld Summer Reading Challenge? Transworld let me and other avid readers pick four books from a great list of ten and in return all I had to do was read and review them.
Well, the excellent news is that they have organized another fantastic opportunity for us book lovers to get our grubby paws on more free books, with The Great Transworld Crime Caper!
The idea is simple:
“One thing we really know how to do in Transworld Towers is crime, be it spooky Scandinavian, grizzly moorland or armchair killers we publish crime that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let you go! Thanks to the success of all who took part in the Summer Reading Challenge we have decided to repeat our crimes and launch The Great Transworld Crime Caper, an opportunity to go back to the beginning and revisit the scene of the original crimes that launched our most experienced villains. We want you to be the judge, jury and executioner of the titles listed below. We will have a two week registration period ending the 14th February, Valentine’s Day which will make us repent our sins and feel the love! Pick three books from the list below to read and review on a venue of your choice (Amazon, blog, etc) The challenge will finish on the 31st March whereby we will dust for fingerprints, weigh up our case and post up some of the best (or worst) reviews that we’ve had in. Email us back your first review and we’ll send you your second book, etc, it really is that easy in the criminal underbelly of publishing. There is no cost, no catch, just the possibility that we may send you more free books in the future!”
The books are:
- Full Dark House by Christopher Fowler
- Sacrifice by S. J. Bolton
- Blacklands by Belinda Bauer
- Birdman by Mo Hayder
- The Chemistry of Death by Simon Beckett

Needless to say – even though I’m already doing Book Chick City’s Stephen King Reading Challenge, have challenged myself to finally catch up on Marian Keyes by reading one of her titles every month this year, have a (lovely matching) set of Jo Nesbos I’m going to reward myself with once my first draft is done and have about seventeen other books I need to read too – I’ve signed up to do it.
Who’s with me?
