Giveaway - Heart of Lies by M. L. Malcolm

Good morning everyone - I hope you are all ready for this wonderful giveaway I have for you today. I have up for grabs, 1 copy of Heart of Lies by M. L. Malcolm, thanks to the fabulous publicist.
"Leo Hoffman was born with a gift for languages. When his dreams for the future are destroyed by World War I, the dashing young Hungarian attempts to use his rare talent to rebuild his life, only to find himself inadvertently embroiled in an international counterfeiting scheme. Suddenly Leo is wanted across the European continent for a host of crimes, including murder. Left with no options, he must escape to Shanghai with his lover, carrying with him a stolen treasure that could be his salvation . . . or his death warrant. But the gangsters who control the decadent Asian city have no intention of letting him outrun his past. And when the Japanese invade, one wrong move could cost Leo Hoffman everything he holds dear.

An epic tale of intrigue, passion, and adventure, Heart of Lies heralds the arrival of a remarkable writer."

  6. Heather, I am so glad that you enjoyed "Heart of Lies," and will make sure that you get an early copy of the sequel. Thank you! I can't express how grateful I am to all of the members of the reader/blogging community who have taken the time to review “Heart of Lies;” my original publisher went belly-up (very inconvenient) and to be rediscovered by Harper Collins was and continues to be a dream come true. Happy reading, and please keep in touch! Sincerely, M.L. Malcolm, www.MLMalcolm.com

    Great review of the book. The first half of the 20th century was such a time of world turmoil. The author literally had the world to use for her book. The sequel also sounds good. I am glad Harper Collins rediscovered the author.
