ORACLE Olympics Opening Ceremony

Olympics-mania is at fever pitch! What better way is there to get into the Olympic spirit than a book set around the London Games?

J.C. Martin releases her debut novel, crime thriller Oracle, today! To celebrate, she's holding a month-long Oracle Olympics Blog Tour, with tons of games and prizes, including a possible grand prize of an iPad3 (for more details, visit J.C.'s blog)!

And it all kicks off with today's Opening Ceremony!  

Read on to find out how you could win a signed paperback copy of Oracle right off the bat!

So what is Oracle about, anyway? Here's the blurb:  

Oracle  

With London gearing up to host the Olympics, the city doesn't need a serial killer stalking the streets, but they've got one anyway.  

Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police force is no closer to finding the latest psychopath than Detective Inspector Kurt Lancer is in finding a solution for his daughter's disability.  

Thrust into the pressure cooker of a high profile case, the struggling single parent is wound tight as he tries to balance care of his own family with the safety of a growing population of potential victims.  

One of whom could be his own daughter.  

Fingers point in every direction as the public relations nightmare grows, and Lancer's only answer comes in the form of a single oak leaf left at each crime scene.

Impressive and unique debut, I already commented on your other blog about the review. But I will say it again. Thanks for the review. I already knew I was going to buy the book as soon as it was released, but each review i read only intensifies my eagerness to begin reading. I love the letter-clue- idea for this launch. Very clever.

Hi, Cherie. New follower here. I'm one of the parade of nations in support of J.C. on this tour. I just thought I'd poke my head in the door and say hello. It's good to meet you. I've since stalked you on Twitter & FB. Have a good week. *waves*
