A Beautiful Debut

Malla Nunn’s A Beautiful Place to Die is as gorgeous as it is compelling.  I’ve rarely read such evocative writing in a mystery novel.  It is set in South Africa though, so I guess that’s unavoidable.  Either way, this is not to be missed!  She reads like a combination of Raymond Chandler and Graham Greene.  I’m giving away 2 copies to the first 2 people to email me (claire.laplante@simonandschuster.ca) with the title in the subject line.  Oh yeah, and it’s the first of a series!�
