Spotlight and Book Giveaway: FLASHBACK by Dan Simmons

CLOSED.
Thanks to the future-minded folks at
Hachette Book Group,
I have been authorized to
 give away two (2) copies of
FLASHBACK
by Dan Simmons.

Rules for entering this giveaway
are at the bottom of this post.



Pub. Date: July 2011
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
Format: Hardcover , 560pp
ISBN-13: 9780316006965
ISBN: 0316006963

Description (from the publisher):
The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result.

Nick may be a lost soul but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son. This flashback-addict becomes the one man who may be able to change the course of an entire nation turning away from the future to live in the past.

A provocative novel set in a future that seems scarily possible, FLASHBACK proves why Dan Simmons is one of our most exciting and versatile writers.

The cover of this book is inconsistent with the story. The cover indicates a fire at an amusement park.
