A big handful of Harry Bosch

Category Contests

Are you a fan of mysteries? If you are, you’ve probably already met Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch, the aging LAPD detective determined to solve the case. Does Harry Bosch work as a protagonist? Well, Nine Dragons—being released this week—is actually the fifteenth Harry Bosch novel, so I’d say something’s working there, yes!

Thanks to our generous friends at Hachette, five lucky Want Not readers are going to receive a hot-off-the-presses copy of Nine Dragons. And one other lucky reader is going to receive an entire Harry Bosch sampler; in addition to Nine Dragons, our grand prize winner will also receive Echo Park, The Overlook, The Brass Verdict, and The Closers.

That’s enough reading material to keep you busy for a while.

Want to play? First go read the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a common on this post by noon Eastern (that’s 9:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, October 12th, 2009 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and recitation of their Miranda rights.

Ready? Go!
