Today I am delighted to be revealing the eighth clue in the Jane Alexander Treasure Hunt.
Read on to find out how you can join in the fun.
An act of violent vengeance sees
A local gangster plummet
Decades on, a similar fate
Awaited this brutalist summit.
How the hunt works:
- Each clue refers to a landmark or iconic location in a film. The landmark/location is the answer – when you figure it out, make a note of it!
- (If you need a hand, check out the #treasurehunt hashtag on Twitter or Instagram for a hint to the landmark’s location…)
- Clues will be revealed by some fantastic book bloggers from March 26th until April 21st. Keep checking back on Jane Alexander’s dedicated treasure hunt page (click Join the hunt) or on the #treasurehunt hashtag for links and new clues.
- When all the clues are revealed, the first letter of every answer will make an anagram. Solve the anagram and you have your final answer!
- Email this answer and all the landmarks you figured out to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30th to be entered into the prize draw. Two entrants will win a signed copy of The Last Treasure Hunt – and if you’ve guessed the most landmarks and locations, you’ll win a goodie bag and something special from Jane personally! On top of that you’ll get bragging rights on Twitter and we’ll publicly dub you queen/king sleuth.
- Good luck!
The Last Treasure Hunt – a modern media morality tale
At the age of thirty, Campbell Johnstone is a failure. He’s stuck behind the bar of a shabby pub, watching from the sidelines while everyone else makes a success of their lives. The most visible is Eve Sadler, a childhood friend and rising Hollywood star. When Campbell tries to rekindle their relationship, he longs for the glitter of her success to rub off on him, but a single shocking night – the novel’s shattering twist delivered with a knockout punch – changes everything. Campbell is about to discover the bittersweet taste of fame, and in the process, struggle to save his soul and overcome his own self-‐delusion. The Last Treasure Hunt explores our obsession with fame and celebrity with great intelligence and sly wit – it’s a modern media morality tale with bite.
