Flash fiction contest winners get prizes, usually a book from my shelves that I've read and liked a lot.
For this week's contest one of the winners mentioned she'd liked Bruce Borgos' The Bitter Past.
I heard about The Peacock and The Sparrow by way of Bruce's newsletter. His comments made me want to read it so off I swam to the bookstore and got a copy.
And Bruce was oh-so-right!
This book is amazing.
Very much NOT the usual kind of spy novel (which I love!) and so beautifully written that some of the sentences just made me stop reading to catch my breath.
So it seemed a perfect circle to send the book to one of Bruce's new fans, and one of our contest winners.
Now, off to the post office to get this in the mail.
