Those kind folks at Tor/Forge on Fifth Avenue, New York have given me an extra ARC of A Game of Lies by Rebecca Cantrell, which gives you the opportunity to win a copy before the publication date on July 5, 2011.

This is the much anticipated third book in the prize winning Hannah Vogel series.

You can read all about Rebecca Cantrell, her comprehensive research, and this series at Rebecca's website here.

The first book A Trace Of Smoke was set in 1931 Berlin and won the Sue Federer, McAvity and Bruce Alexander Memorial Award for best historical mystery.
The second A Night of Long Knives was set during the June 1934 purge of the SA Brownshirts and was also nominated for the Bruce Alexander last year.[won by The Mapping of Love and Death by Jacqueline Winspear].

A Game of Lies returns Hannah Vogel to Germany as a spy, undercover as a reporter attending the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

My reviews of A Trace of Smoke and A Night of Long Knives [with links to my interview with Rebecca].
As I really enjoyed the first two books and love the brave, feisty heroine, Hannah Vogel, I am really looking forward to reading A Game of Lies and posting a review next month.

How to win a copy. Answer the following questions e-mailing your answers by 21 May to

1] Which country boycotted the 1936 Berlin Olympics and organized their own games? What prevented those games starting?

2] Who was the high jumper prevented from competing in the Berlin Olympics although she held the German record, and had won the British high jump championship?

Good luck.
