This Week's Mystery is No Mystery

It's the first giveaway for Coffee Light readers,
a copy of The Big Empty
A few weeks ago I featured The Big Empty as the first Mystery of the Week for Coffee Light. I enjoyed it a lot and thought our band of mystery readers would like the opportunity to read it, too. One Coffee Light reader will receive an advance reader copy, thanks to my buddies at Soho Press.

It's an easy entry. Please be a follower of Coffee Light and leave a comment with your favorite mystery novel. To receive an extra entry, dear blogger buddies, a shout out on your blog would be great. If you're not a blogger, you can earn an extra entry by Facebook/Instagram/Google+ mention. Just let me know in a comment if you posted for an extra entry. The giveaway will be open until Sunday, September 2 and on Monday, September 3 I will do a blog post with the winner's name.

In the interim I'm getting ready for next week's Mystery of the Week and finishing Elly Griffiths' The Chalk Pit. It's a favorite series and I'm enjoying it very much.

I feel that the last days of August are the last days of summer, though I do know that summer doesn't technically end for a few more weeks. But school started for years on the Wednesday after Labor Day and the last week of August was the last week of summer. Old habits still linger and I'm savoring shorts, no socks, t-shirts and of course, iced coffee light. What are you savoring this week?

Thanks for visiting and happy reading!


  1. I don't think I can pick a favourite but at the moment I am sitting in front of the heater, (-1 degrees here), enjoying the new historical series by Jim Kelly set in Cambridge in 1939 called The Great Darkness. (also mention on facebook)

  2. G'evening! My favorite mystery is usually the one I just finished reading. (Life's too short to finish uninteresting books, don't you think?) Baldacci and Deaver still do it for me. Then again! Blog friend Victor has penned a delightfully farcical, "Mystery at Status Manor."

  3. I am into Mr. Flood's Last Resort and I think it is delightful!!

  4. I haven't read this so I would love to have it! I have so many favorites....right now I'm reading Thomas Perry AND Charles Finch mysteries. I keep going back to some of my favorite authors. Thanks!
