A DEADLY Giveaway!


In celebration of Julie Chibbaro's paperback release of DEADLY, we're giving away a signed paperback copy to a lucky follower!  I've always thought this book looked fascinating, and I especially like the new cover.  It gives it a very ominous feeling!
Prudence Galewski doesn’t belong in Mrs. Browning’s esteemed School for Girls. She doesn’t want an “appropriate” job that makes use of refinement and charm. Instead, she is fascinated by how the human body works—and why it fails.

Prudence is lucky to land a position in a laboratory, where she is swept into an investigation of a mysterious fever. From ritzy mansions to shady bars and rundown tenements, Prudence explores every potential cause of the disease to no avail—until the volatile Mary Mallon emerges. Dubbed “Typhoid Mary” by the press, Mary is an Irish immigrant who has worked as a cook in every home the fever has ravaged. But she’s never been sick a day in her life. Is the accusation against her an act of discrimination? Or is she the first clue in solving one of the greatest medical mysteries of the twentieth century?
Find out more about DEADLY on Julie's blog!  Make sure you check out the illustrations, and you can even read an excerpt!

    Having read the synopsis, I'm afraid I'm not crazy about the cover! =P It makes the novel seem like another Jack the Ripper story (or something else with a notorious serial killer) rather than the medical mystery it seems to be. But I'm not going to judge it by its cover and would still like to be entered in the giveaway. ;-) Thanks!

    1. OK, I just went to put the book on hold at my library and I definitely prefer the new cover. The old yellow one is not nearly as atmospheric.

  37. I love the tones. The purple/gray/black combo really gives it an eerie feel. Also the cobblestones and the silhouette of the girl instantly gives me an older time period feel. Love it, but I do have a soft spot still for that bright yellow cover with the bugs on it!
