Reviewers and Tour Hosts


Hi everyone!  And how is your Sunday?  Any fun plans?  Or are you running around finishing your Christmas shopping?  My best friend took me the other day, as it is hard for me to walk around for lengthy amounts of time, and since she is the Queen of Shopping, we were finished in no time.  Plus the fact that I do most of my shopping online.

As you may know, I am partners with Molly from Reviews By Molly, in a virtual PR company, Partners In Crime Tours (www.partnersincrimetours.net).  We are currently looking for more hosts so I thought I would start with the great followers of this blog.  Plus the fact that I just finished reading a book that will be touring with us starting in January to April and it was a 4/5.  I can't post my review until then but I can give you a synopsis in case you are interested in reviewing it.

As far as becoming a host.  You DO NOT have to read and review every book we have booked.  Only those novels that you think you would enjoy.  All that we ask is this, that once the calendar is created, you choose the date during the tour time frame that is convenient for you to post your review and that we both agree to and that you guarantee that you will post it on said date.  That easy!!  Don't have a blog?  Do you post on GoodReads, LibraryThing?  Then you can become a host too.

I have 2 books that are touring starting one in January-April (the one I just finished) and another one February-May.

If you are interested in either one and/or both after you read the synopsis, please send me an email at CMash@partnersincrimetours.net with the following information and I will get back to you with more details.

WHICH TOUR:

Tour Number 1 (THIS IS THE ONE I FINISHED LAST NIGHT)
Voices of the Dead by Peter Leonard
Tour planned approximately end of January/beginning February thru April
Synopsis:
The year is 1971. The place is Detroit. Harry Levin, a scrap metal dealer and Holocaust survivor, has just learned that his daughter was killed in a car accident. Traveling to Washington, DC to claim the body, he learns that the accident was caused by a German diplomat who was driving drunk. This is only the beginning of the horror for Harry, though, as he discovers that the diplomat will never face charges – he has already been released and granted immunity. Enraged and aggrieved, Harry discovers the identity of his daughter’s killer, follows him to Munich, and hunts him down. What Harry finds out about the diplomat and his plans will explode his life and the lives of everyone around him.
Brimming with action and dark humor, Voices of the Dead, firmly positions Peter Leonard as a writer ever suspense fan needs to read.
Addendum: Name sound familiar?......... It is fast-paced and darkly humorous, a little reminiscent of Elmore Leonard. The latter might be because the author, Peter Leonard, has been influenced by Elmore Leonard about as much as a writer can be – the elder Leonard is his father.

Tour Number 2
Gods and Fathers by James Lepore
Tour continues into the beginning of May
Synopsis:
Nationally bestselling author James LePore has established a reputation as a writer whose vividly drawn characters and morally complex plots have kept readers up to all hours turning pages. His new novel promises more sleepless nights and more nonstop thrills.
Matt DeMarco is an accomplished Manhattan attorney with more than his share of emotional baggage. His marriage ended disastrously, his ex-wife has pulled their son away from him, and her remarriage to a hugely successful Arab businessman has created complications for Matt on multiple levels. However, his life shifts from troubled to imperiled when two cops – men he's known for a long time – come into his home and arrest his son as the prime suspect in the murder of the boy's girlfriend.
Suddenly, the enmity between Matt and his only child is no longer relevant. Matt must do everything he can to clear his son, who he fully believes is innocent. Doing so will require him to quit his job and make enemies of former friends – and it will throw him up against forces he barely knew existed and can only begin to comprehend how to battle.
GODS AND FATHERS is at once a powerful mystery and a provocative international thriller, all of it presented with LePore's signature fascinating characters placed in dire circumstances where every choice poses new and potentially fatal challenges.


Hope to hear from you!!!
