Double Giveaway: First Daughter & Blood Trust by Eric Van Lustbrader

Welcome to the first day of Armchair BEA 2011. I know this is going to be a fabulous week for those of us in New York and for those of us at home having our own party.

So when Tor/Forge Books and Zeitghost Media offered me a chance to give away a two-book set, I immediately thought of Armchair BEA! Here are the details.

Eric Van Lustbrader's exciting thriller series begins with First Daughter and introduces readers to Jack McClure, a dyslectic special agent for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Take a look at part of the book summary:

When a terrible accident takes the life of his only daughter, Emma, and his marriage falls apart, Jack blames himself, numbing the pain by submerging himself in work. Then he receives a call from his old friend Edward Carson. Carson is just weeks from taking the reins as President of the United States when his daughter, Alli, is kidnapped. Because Emma McClure was once Alli’s best friend, Carson turns to Jack, the one man he can trust to go to any lengths to find his daughter and bring her home safely.
Here's what Ann from Booklorn Is a State of Mind said "I enjoyed First Daughter (in fact, I read the whole book in 24 hours). It is intricate enough to keep you guessing with enough action and intrigue to keep you from thinking too much."

In the latest book in the series (the third one), Van Lustbrader Jack McClure once again comes to the aid of Alli Carson. Although she is now an FBI agent, Alli is accused of a murder and turns to Jack to help her find the real killer.

What follows is a treacherous journey that leads Jack and Alli into a complex web of lies and deceit. Using Jack’s unique gifts to see the through the labyrinth of manipulation, their investigation leads them into the dark heart of the international slave trade, tied to a powerful Albanian crime lord whose ability and influence in global terrorism grows with each day.

The two find themselves in the crosshairs of vast global enterprise, one that lurks in the shadows of power and has infiltrated Washington and their lives in ways neither of them could ever have imagined. And hidden deep among it all sits a terrifying criminal mastermind, someone fueled by a hatred that can never be quenched, and a mind that knows neither feeling nor mercy.
Guest reviewer Booking Pap Pap writing on Julie's Booking Mama blog said this about Blood Trust: "Van Lustbader does a superb job of taking the reader through a complex entanglement of lies and deceit always leaving the reader unsure of where the clues will lead until the very end."

Because the books are being sent directly from the publicist, this giveaway is open only to those with a U.S. or Canada mailing address. To enter, fill out the form. I'll pick a winner next Monday morning. Good luck and enjoy!

A dyslectic special agent? I want to find out more! The story is interesting and more so because this is a new-to-me author. Too bad the giveaway does not extend internationally. I will look for the series, though.
