So if you'll will forgive me a moment of self-promotion, I've got some happy news. My new book, GOOD PEOPLE, comes out August 14th. It's my fave thus far, and the early reviews have been very generous:
"Masterful...tops his previous two novels…stellar."You can read an excerpt on my website, if you're interested.
- Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
"Gleefully dread-filled and mercilessly tense, GOOD PEOPLE
moves with the speed of something fired from a sawed-off."
- Dennis Lehane, bestselling author of MYSTIC RIVER
"A killer of a book. Magnificent."
- Ken Bruen, Edgar-nominated author of PRIEST
"Dark, disturbing, and timely...Marcus Sakey is a prodigious talent."
- Laura Lippman, bestselling author of ANOTHER THING TO FALL
"GOOD PEOPLE scared the crap out of me."
- Julia Spencer-Fleming, Edgar-nominated author of I SHALL NOT WANT
Meanwhile, I've got a fun opportunity. I'm planning my tour schedule, and while a lot of it is figured out, I want to make sure that I go beyond the usual suspects. So here's the deal—if you're interested in me coming to your area, let me know. I'll visit the place that gets the most votes. Not only that, but wherever it is, I'm taking everyone who attends out for drinks afterwards.
You can either post here or email me with the subject "Have a signing here" and your vote will be counted. Plus, if you're pretty sure you can rope in some other people to join, tell me how many and I'll count them as votes as well.
Those of you in Chicago, have no fear--I'll be all over the place, probably overstaying my welcome.
Thanks, folks! Looking forward to hearing from you.
