Giveaway! 'The Folding Knife' (K.J.Parker)

I wasn't too keen on 'The Company' but there's something about K.J. Parker that has always intrigued me. It might be the blurbs for his work, it might be the fact that no-one knows who he is. I could be sat right next to him now and I'd never know...

Whatever the reason, I'll be giving 'The Folding Knife' a go at some point soon and thanks to Orbit three other readers will be able to do exactly the same (only if they're from the UK though...)
Here's the blurb,

Basso the Magnificent. Basso the Great. Basso the Wise. Basso the Murderer. The First Citizen of the Vesani Republic is an extraordinary man. He is ruthless, cunning and, above all, lucky. He brings wealth, power and prestige to his people. But with power comes unwanted attention, and Basso must defend his nation and himself from threats foreign and domestic. In a lifetime of crucial decisions, he's only ever made one mistake. One mistake, though, can be enough.

If yo ufancy your chances at winning a copy, just drop me an email (address at the top right hand side of the screen) telling me who you are and what your postal address is. Remember to make it clear in the header that this is the competition you want to enter... I'll do everything else.

I'll let this one run until the 6th of June and will endeavour to announce the winners as soon as possible afterwards.

Good Luck!

I think Parker might actually be a lady.

BTW, is this book stand-alone? Not that I'm eligible for it, being a foreigner and all, just wondering.

I haven't read the company but I really enjoyed Parker's 'The Engineer Trilogy'. Looking forward to this one.
