Fan of Pelecanos’ The Cut?

Grab the free audio short story “Chosen,” in which bestselling author George Pelecanos first explored the character of Iraq War veteran Spero Lucas, hero of his newest novel, The Cut. Best of all, the audio is read by actor Dion Graham, who appears in TV’s The Wire – a series that includes Pelecanos as a writer. Audiobook fans know that Graham is one the very best narrators, from award-winning adult titles to Odyssey-honored youth & YA titles. Good to know that Dion Graham will be voicing the whole Lucas series, beginning with The Cut. If you’ve never heard Graham work his magic, download “Chosen” for free and see what you’ve been missing! Just visit the Hachette Audio web site, scroll all the way to the bottom, find the “Online Exclusive” on the bottom right of the page, right-click the blue Chosen link, and save the MP3 file to your computer. Then drag and drop onto to your player or cell phone. Or you can visit Hachette Audio’s Facebook page and listen to the story on their Lit Amp online player – no download required. Enjoy this 1 hour 15 minute free treat!
