Hatchette Audio Book Giveaway of David Baldacci's True Blue

A huge thank you to Anna and Hatchette Book Group for sponsoring this audio book giveaway of 3 copies of David Baldacci's latest work, True Blue!

About the Book, courtesy of the publisher:

A mysterious high-profile homicide in the nation's capital collides with the dark side of national security in David Baldacci's new, heart-stopping thriller.


TRUE BLUE
Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars.

Then Roy Kingman enters her life.


Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.


Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

  18. I've never read any of his books before but I'd like to give this one a try. Mostly because it sounds like a good story but also because it's not part of a series.

  28. Anyone caught this new read? A book called "Pulse," by an author named Jeremy Robinson. Looks pretty explosive...literally, about soliders never dying and being able to regenerate. What if you could live forever? What if a suicide bomber never died?
