Waiting on Wednesday

Hello, and welcome to my blog. While you are here please have a look around, and don't forget to stop by my Spooktacular Giveaway, for a chance to win a supernatural/Halloween themed book of your choice from the Book Depository.  Also stop by my November giveaway for a chance to win Shadow by Jenny Moss, and either Lost Hero or Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.  Also, don't forget to check out my story entry for the Haunted Halloween Story Contest.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where book bloggers share the books that they are waiting to be released.

This week my pick is You Killed Wesley Payne by Sean Beaudoin.  It's current release date is 2/1/11.

Goodreads description:
He's come to do a job.
A job that involves a body.
A body wrapped in duct tape found hanging from the goal posts at the end of the football field.

You Killed Wesley Payne
is a truly original and darkly hilarious update of classic pulp-noir, in which hard-boiled seventeen year-old Dalton Rev transfers to the mean hallways of Salt River High to take on the toughest case of his life. The question isn't whether Dalton's going to get paid. He always gets paid. Or whether he's gonna get the girl. He always (sometimes) gets the girl. The real question is whether Dalton Rev can outwit crooked cops and killer cliques in time to solve the mystery of "The Body" before it solves him.</br></br> Sean Beaudoin (Going Nowhere Faster, Fade to Blue) evokes the distinctive voices of legendary crime/noir authors Dashiell Hammett and Jim Thompson with a little bit of Mean Girls and Heathers throwin in for good measure. This smart, slick, and alluring detective novel that will tease you, thrill you, and suck you in.
