Publisher's Summary

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. 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.


What the Critics Say

"Lee Goldberg bravely marches into territory already staked out by some fierce competition - Donald Westlake, Lawrence Block, the early Harlan Coben - and comes out virtually unscathed." (The Chicago Tribune)

Would you listen to Watch Me Die again? Why?

no. its a one off story because I would remember what happened.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

he brought Harvey mapes to life and the other characters in the book.

Any additional comments?

fast paced and gripping I liked this story of a bored security guard becoming a private eye with the help of detective reruns on t.v. and the many detective novels he was addicted to.

well written characters and plot. recommended if you want a change from crime series.
