Competition: Carver by Tom Cain

Tom Cain's new thriller is available now and courtesy of Transworld Publishers I have a signed copy to give away.

Here is the lowdown:


The collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 sent shockwaves around the financial world. Never before had such a large and prestigious organisation been allowed to fail, and to fail so quickly. It began a domino effect, hitting banks and economies around the world. Theories abound as to the cause of the collapse - the sub-prime bubble, bad management, even good old fashioned greed.

But what if it was none of the above. What if Lehman Brothers had been brought to its knees by the deliberate and wilful act of one man bent on a course of financial terrorism? Moreover, what if it was only a dry run for a bigger and even bolder attack on the financial capital of the world, the City of London?

Samuel Carver is about to find himself on the biggest mission of his life.

    The Carver series are well researched, well structured, drawing on specialist knowledge and the action continually "cuts" like a film between different scenarios and protagonists.Compulsive reading.

    I've never heard of this author or series but it sounds bloody brilliant so here is my bid to win the book - I have to choose two though because I can't separate them! Michael Corleone in The Godfather films: I have never seen better acting. His transformation from clean-cut war hero to dead-eyed mafia don is, for me, unsurpassed in all cinema. My other choice is Sidney James in the Carry-On films: he always plays a character called Sid and he can do ANYTHING. From cowboy to doctor, highwayman to prostitute, his vast range is equalled only by his sublime sense of humour. (He also looks like my old boss - wee Jimmy). Great blog, Rick. Cheers!

  4. Dare I admit I've never heard of this series! Bad me!

  5. It's a hard choice between Sam Carver and Morrell's Cavanaugh... both assassins you love to love and simply can't get enough of. How long do we have to wait between books???!!!??? Can't you write any faster??


Let me know what you think. I value all comments and fully intend to reply.
