J.C. Martin's Cover Reveal: ORACLE

Today I'd like to give you a sneak peek into J.C Martin's upcoming novel, ORACLE, which will be released mid year. Today is the official day that her cover art is released to the public, so of course it's a very special day, as all of us who have gone through this can surely remember the excitement! :o)

But there's a mystery to be solved as well. J.C. sure is a clever cookie thinking this up. It's such a great idea! Basically there is a mystery attached to this cover reveal tour that readers have to solve. All you have to do is read all 13 posts of the tour and figure out what smells like a rat ... Keen? If you figure it out you'll win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Here's the blurb of the book:

As the countdown begins, the body count rises.

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

Leaving a trail of brutal and bizarre murders, the police are no closer to finding their latest murderer 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 next 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.

Have a wonderful week everyone! To find out more on how to play please VISIT J.C. MARTIN AT HER BLOG!
