A little while back I had the opportunity to read Don Winslow’s superb novel SATORI – out now from Headline.
If you missed the review, you can click HERE.
And here’s a brief summary plus news of a great fun contest to win a unique prize courtesy of Headline:
Nicholai Hel — genius, assassin, mystic, master of language and culture, and the world’s most artful lover. Until now, he has appeared just once in the brilliant and unforgettable Shibumi. Published in 1979, Trevanian’s Shibumi was a landmark bestseller, selling over 2.3 million copies. It is revered by many as one of the greatest thrillers of the 20th century and now Don Winslow returns with the gripping prequel, Satori.
To celebrate the publication of Satori Headline Publishers are offering a rather unusual prize, a copy of Go, the ancient board game which figures prominently in the novel. Fiendishly difficult (we can’t even figure out the rule book), this game will offer hours of enjoyment – why not play along whilst you read Satori!
A COPY OF SATORI IS ALSO BEING KINDLY THROWN IN WITH THE GAME THANKS TO THOSE LOVELY PEOPLE AT HEADLINE.
Nicholai Hel is the master of the secret martial art of hoda korosu, or naked/kill. To be in with a chance of winning Go, just let us know what your secret martial arts skill is in under 100 words of less in the comments below. And for some inspiration, here is Sam Eades from the Headline pr team’s secret martial arts skill:
The “publicity flick” – the ability to disable any assailant in a ten mile radius with a shake of my blonde tresses.
So, let your creative juices flow and have fun coming up with your own secret martial art skill – we look forward to reading your comments and picking a lucky winner to receive the game.
Please leave your email address in the comment box, using ‘AT’ rather than @ to confuse those pesky spambots.
Good luck fellow assassins and warriors.
