E-BOOKS: WATCH ME DIE!

E-BOOKS: WATCH ME DIE!

LEE GOLDBERG

KINDLE EDITION ~ $2.99

ONE OF MY FAVORITE ALL TIME LEE GOLDBERG BOOKS IS THE MAN WITH THE IRON ON BADGE. IT IS SUCH A QUIRKY TALE THAT IT ALMOST DEFIES DESCRIPTION AND CERTAINLY DEFIES CATEGORIZATION – AND THAT’S THE THING I LIKE ABOUT IT THE MOST . . .

LEE HAS RECENTLY RELAUNCHED THE NOVEL ON KINDLE UNDER THE TITLE WATCH ME DIE WITH A FABULOUS NEW COVER. THIS IS GREAT NEWS, AS THE BOOK WILL, HOPEFULLY, AND FINALLY, FIND THE AUDIENCE AND ACCLAIM IT DESERVES . . .

Harvey Mapes is a 26-year-old security guard who spends his nights in a guard shack outside a gated community in Southern California, reading detective novels, watching reruns, and waiting for his life to finally start... which happens when Cyril Parkus, one of the wealthy residents, asks Harvey to follow his beautiful wife Lauren.

The lowly security guard jumps at the opportunity to fulfill his private eye fantasies and use everything he's learned from Spenser, Magnum, and Mannix. But things don't exactly go according to the books...or the reruns. As Harvey fumbles and stumbles through his first investigation, he discovers that the differences between fiction and reality can be deadly.

With the help of his mortgage broker neighbor and occasional lover Carol, Harvey uncovers a blackmail plot that takes a sudden and unexpectedly tragic turn...plunging him into a world of violence, deception and murder... and forcing him to discover what it really takes to be a private eye.
