LIKE A CHARM: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LIKE A CHARM
EDITED BY KARIN SLAUGHTER
  
ABOUT THE BOOK:
New York Times bestselling authors including Karin Slaughter, Lee Child, Peter Robinson, Laura Lippman, John Connolly, and others, combine their talents to deliver a brilliant tour-de-force in this clever suspense novel that revolves around one object—a charm bracelet—and the harrowing circumstances that plague the unlucky people who come into contact with it.

Linked by a glittering charm bracelet that brings misfortune to everyone who handles it, Like a Charm is a novel in sixteen chilling parts written by the cream of US and UK crime writers. From nineteenth-century Georgia, where the bracelet is forged in fire, to wartime Leeds, a steam train across Europe, the violent backstreets of 1980s Scotland, present-day London, a Manhattan taxi, the Mojave Desert and back to Georgia, each writer weaves a gripping story of murder, betrayal and intrigue.

A must-have collection for fans of suspense fiction, Like a Charm is a mesmerizing, masterful story that makes for compulsive, just-one-more-chapter reading.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Karin Slaughter is the #1 internationally bestselling author of numerous novels, including the Grant County and Will Trent series. She was born in Georgia, and, with the exception of traveling to support her book publications domestically and abroad, always returns home to Atlanta. Karin Slaughter is her birth name and not a pseudonym.  

She attended two years of college at Georgia State, and never graduated, though she considers herself a voracious and lifelong learner. Slaughter started a sign business before becoming a successful writer. She has toured a dozen countries promoting her work, including Australia, Singapore, France and Finland.

This sounds so interesting! The idea of a charm bracelet in different eras of time and the effect it has is unique.

I like using the device of a charm bracelet linking stories through time. However. I think I would prefer one book written solely by the author. This book does have mixed reviews. so I am a fan of her writing.

I like that it's about the bracelet from the time it was made and follows it through time and owners and whatever befalls them. and, that it is told by different authors. It sounds like it will be such fun to read. I can't wait.

Karin has these puzzles on her site that, unless you have the time to spare, don't get started, because they will drive you nuts trying to finish them. I couldn't come back here until I completed the one I started.
