Be a Detective with Robert Galbraith and Win Signed Books!
You may remember that when the hardcover of Robert Galbraith’s third Strike novel, Career of Evil, was released last October, the Crime Vault, which publishes the Galbraith novels in the UK, ran a special detective-based competition. Well, Make Me a Detective is now back for the paperback release of the book.
The Crime Vault announced today that it would be running another Robert Galbraith competition from today, April 21, to May 5.
Starting today, a series of clues will be released, which you can piece together and find the secret locations where a limited number of signed books will be available. But don’t worry, there are opportunities to get a copy even if you can’t get to a store. Here’s a little bit more about how the competition will work.
When you solve the mystery of each clue you will unlock the secret locations of where you can find limited signed paperback copies of Career of Evil in the UK.
If you are one of the lucky fans [who] works out the answers and can travel to one of these secret locations, then head straight to the main till point and say #MakeMeADetective to claim your signed copy. Be sure to take photos and post them on social media, tagging @RGalbraith where you can!
If you think you have cracked the mysteries but can’t travel, then there will be an opportunity for you to send in your answers to be entered into a prize draw to win a signed paperback copy of Career of Evil. Up to ten people, who have sent in all of the correct answers, will be chosen at random as winners. The entry form will be live on Monday 2 May once all of the clues have been posted. You will have three days to enter before all the answers are revealed on Thursday 5 May.
The second clue will be released on Monday, April 25.
