Giveaway: Still Midnight

This giveaway is now closed.

*Thanks to Hachette Book Group USA, I have a copy of Still Midnight by Denise Mina to giveaway to one lucky reader.* This giveaway is open to the US and Canada only.

Still Midnight

Alex Morrow is not new to the police force-or to crime-but there is nothing familiar about the call she has just received. On a still night in a quiet suburb of Glasgow, Scotland, three armed men have slipped from a van into a house, demanding a man who is not, and has never been, inside the front door. In the confusion that ensues, one family member is shot and another kidnapped, the assailants demanding an impossible ransom. Is this the amateur crime gone horribly wrong that it seems, or something much more unexpected?

As Alex falls further into the most challenging case of her career, Denise Mina proves why "if you don't read crime novels, Mina is your reason to change" ( Rocky Mountain News).
