    Ragdoll by Daniel Cole

    This competition is for one of three copies of this debut novel Ragdoll by Daniel Cole. It is a tense psychological crime thriller where the killer gives a list of victims to the media with the date they are to be killed. The author, Daniel Cole, said he based this partly on 24, the TV programme with Jack Bauer played by Keilfer Sutherland so it should be a fast paced book.


    There are three copies available as prizes and the competition will run until some time on Sunday 19th March.


    The entry can be accessed here - Ragdoll entry form






    The review should be up soon, I hope.
    If I make a statement, but a women does not hear it, am I still wrong?

    You could always volunteer to review books - there is a great shortage of ladies reviewing for the site. You keep any books you review.

    I would, but between running my own company, trying to do a masters, looking after a sickly parent, dealing with the man thing joining civvie life (and injuring himself as well) and finishing off the home improvements, reading books for pleasure is relegated to when I am waiting in hospital in between said parents appointment... so not sure when I'd be able to fit in the review writing at this point, but I'll keep it in mind for when things quieten down.

    And the winners are: Ta Dah:


    @Notachance
    @copepod
    @bamboozler
    An awful lot got the reporting question incorrect with many thinking that the Commissioner has no reporting line to the Queen - Wrong! The person he/she does not have reporting line to is the Prime Minister as he/she goes to the Home Secretary. I love it when a plan comes together!

    Answers to all the questions are:

    Q1: The fictional character Jack Bauer was a Captain in the US Army

    Q2. As said above the person not having a reporting line to/from the Commissioner is the Prime Minister

    Q3. Must debate amongst the old plod ion this one but the number of London police stations, according to the highly accurate Wikipedia is 140.

    Well done copepod - nice seeing someone from this site winning.

    Thanks Auld_Yin. Although reviewing isn't too onerous, occasionally it's nice to read without needing to review.
