November's book of the month is the gripping literary thriller Waking Lions by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen.

You can expect to miss your stop and lose hours to this consuming tale, based on a true event, about a respected Israeli neurosurgeon whose split-second decision one evening leaves him spiralling into a web of deception, corruption and guilt.

Apply for one of 50 free copies before 14 October, read the book over the next few weeks and join us back here on 14 November 9-10pm to discuss it and put questions to Ayelet and the book's translator, Sondra Silverston.

If you're not lucky enough to bag a free copy, we'd still love for you to come and join in the discussion - buy a paperback here.

Me please! I cannot resist a book offer... and this one sounds a bit different to my normal chick lit, romcom, family drama-type reading list. I'm particularly interested in how everyday lives are totally transformed on the turn of a sixpence...

Ooh, me too! I love books with a medical theme. Need to get back into reading while I'm on mat leave. I've been quite lazy of late.

Yes please - I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone, away from the same type of book all the time.

Looking to try new authors and styles, so count me in please

I would LOVE a copy. I spent awhile in Israel in my younger days and this story sounds very interesting. Fingers x

This sounds really interesting, the fact that it is based on a true event brings up mixed thoughts and I think it would be good for my book group to read and discuss
