Thanks to Dorothy over at Pump Up Your Book Promotions, I have the great privilege of offering up one copy of THE DEVIL'S COMPANY by David Liss to a lucky reader! Plus, check out the Dog Days of Summer Book Giveaway for more great contests!



Publish Date: July 7, 2009 (first published 2007)

From Random House:
From the acclaimed author of The Whiskey Rebels and A Conspiracy of Paper comes a superb new historical thriller set in the splendor and squalor of eighteenth-century London. In Benjamin Weaver, David Liss has created one of fiction’s most enthralling characters.

The year is 1722. Ruffian for hire, ex-boxer, and master of disguise, Weaver finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, pitted against Jerome Cobb, a wealthy and mysterious schemer who needs Weaver’s strength and guile for his own treacherous plans.

Weaver is blackmailed into stealing documents from England’s most heavily guarded estate, the headquarters of the ruthless British East India Company, but the theft of corporate secrets is only the first move in a daring conspiracy within the eighteenth century’s most powerful corporation. To save his friends and family from Cobb’s reach, Weaver must infiltrate the Company, navigate its warring factions, and uncover a secret plot of corporate rivals, foreign spies, and government operatives. With millions of pounds and the security of the nation at stake, Weaver will find himself in a labyrinth of hidden agendas, daring enemies, and unexpected allies.

With the explosive action and scrupulous period research that are David Liss’s trademarks, The Devil’s Company, depicting the birth of the modern corporation, is the most impressive achievement yet from an author who continues to set ever higher standards for historical suspense.

My brother used to trick me into doing things when I was a kid, but I probably tricked him even more. LOL!

I read the review and it's good to see that you feel the book earns a well deserved A and that the story kept you on the edge of your seat. That's exactly the kind of book I truly enjoy.

I can recall when younger tricked into doing things, but since older, no one's been able to get to me! The one time I remember when I was younger was in school and I was told I was picked to go to head of class to read a paragraph and they picked the worse embarrassing one for me to to do! I lose track of the times I was tricked. But I know now! LOL
