And the winner is...

Recently, thanks to the generosity of New Zealand's contempory Queen of Crime, Vanda Symon (pictured right), I ran a competition here on Crime Watch for one lucky reader to win a personally signed copy of Symon's latest crime novel, THE FACELESS.

We had entries come in from all around the world, but after a random draw, the lucky winner was:

Yvonne Eve Walus of Auckland.

Congratulations Yvonne! I'm sure you'll enjoy THE FACELESS. It's a terrific book.

In addition, in a very nice gesture, Symon has also decided to give away a second personally signed copy of THE FACELESS to another entrant, Belynda Smith of Christchurch. Several entrants actually commented (or messaged me) that if they won they'd like their copy of the book to go to Belynda, a keen reader who had lost all of her own books in the Christchurch earthquakes.

So congratulations to Belynda as well! Your book will be winging its way to you soon.

Thanks so much to the wonderful Vanda Symon for donating the signed books.

For those who missed out, I can highly recommend trotting down to your local bookstore and picking up a copy (or for those overseas, feel free to email me and we'll see if we can work something out).

Thanks again to everyone for entering.

  1. Congratulations to Yvonne Eve Walus and thanks to you and Vanda Symon for sending a signed copy of the book to Belynda Smith, who lost her books and her house in that notorious earthquake.

    That made my day!
