  1. This book sounds absolutely enthralling. I love historical fiction and also good thrillers. I have never read anything by this author but enjoy historical thrillers by C.D.Sansome. I would love to review it.

  2. As an avid reader of crime fiction I would love the chance to review Andrew Tatlor’s latest offering.

    Other than being a reader I also facilitate a reading group for a local library-connected writers’ club.

  3. 2 things:
    1) I can’t find any way on your site to buy this book, nor can I find anywhere on your site to type in the name of any book I’d like to buy.
    2) What are you asking for with this book? Are you offering a free copy to potential reviewers?
