PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

Some years ago, Judy and I read a terrific book called The Man with the Iron-on Badge by Lee Goldberg. We loved it. The publisher was Five Star, and we both thought the book would be a big hit. We were wrong. It got great reviews. It was nominated for a Shamus. It sold well for a Five Star book, but there was never a paperback edition, and the book more or less disappeared from the public consciousness. Now, however, Goldberg's making a big push for the book on Kindle and Nook under this new title. If you haven't read it, you might want to give it a try. You just might find yourself making the best discovery of the year.

Wait--which book are you calling attention to: THE MAN WITH THE IRON-ON BADGE or WATCH ME DIE or are they the same book? I'm guessing that both books are equally good and enjoyable.

I should've made it clear that this is the same book with a new title. I'll do that, and thanks.
