Editorial Reviews

Review

Great concept and great execution...it's funny, thrilling, and quirky, with a completely satisfying ending you won't see coming. --Barry Eisler, New York Times bestselling author

Lee Goldberg is known for his cleverness and sense of humor. He shows how a masterful plotter can take a character in a comic situation and lead him into unexpected danger in an eye-blink. --Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author 

When Harvey Mapes gets a chance to step out of his job as a security guard to be a private detective [...]he finds courage he never thought he had and the malleable conscience every successful PI needs. If you're looking for a great read, look no further. --Joel Goldman, bestselling author of "Motion to Kill"

Enjoyed the hell out of it. It's fast and funny, and manages to be both a critique of the PI genre, and a love letter to it.--Jay Stringer, author of "Ways to Die in Glasgow"

Since I no longer find the time to read like I use to "a fun read" is one of the best compliments I can give this book and its author. I found out about "Watch Me Die" when Lee Goldberg appeared on TV Confidential and since years ago I had enjoyed his book "My Gun Has Bullets" I decided to buy "Watch Me Die". I already knew it dealt a character (Harvey Mapes) who watched all the private investigator shows that I enjoy watching and I love all the humor that comes from Harvey finding out things aren't the same way in real life but what I didn't know was how wrapped up I would get in the actual mystery. I found myself saying "just one more chapter" and then I couldn't put the book down until I had read all the way to end. I love the way the mystery was solved especially since it took me by surprise. Now that is what I call entertainment!

As a fan of mysteries, the title caught my eye so I decided to get this book. The story was all engrossing, but some of Harvey Mapes commentary had me cackling and in the process waking up my wife on two consecutive nights. The plot line never missed a beat and in the process became secondary (at least to me) with his self deprecating wit. Don't get me wrong. The story was great, but the way he goes about telling the story will keep you in stitches. Author Lee Goldberg now has a new fan. I'll be getting more of his books.

Watch Me Die is a fun, fast read. When Harvey Mapes gets a chance to step out of his job as a security guard to be a private detective, he relies on a legion of TV PI's, from Magnum to Spenser, using the tricks of the trade he learned by watching them on TV, to solve a case. Sidestepping dead bodies and a killer that wants to add him to that exclusive club, he finds courage he never thought he had and the malleable conscience every successful PI needs. And, he falls in love. Not a bad way to start a new life. If you're looking for a great read, look no further. All you need is Watch Me Die!

I read Watch Me Die under its original title, which I also liked a lot: The Man With The Iron-On Badge. Great concept and great execution, in some ways presaging what was done for superheroes in Kick-Ass. It's funny, thrilling, and quirky, with a completely satisfying ending you won't see coming. If you haven't read it yet, you've been missing out on the proverbial thrills, chills, and laughter. Give it a try!

Wasn't sure I was going to like this book. Has that self-published look and is a little too thin for my tastes. I like meaty mysteries. However, Lee's writing is excellent--strong characterizations, good pace and plot--a true professional, despite the book's appearance. As I read, I became engrossed. And at the end I found I had thoroughly enjoyed it.

College dropout gets offered money under the table to follow a guy's wife. When he finishes the task to the customer's satisfaction he can't resist chasing the whole story down for his own edification. He finds some things about himself he didn't know and he doesn't like all of them. He realizes he's been living a life of quiet desperation and begins to craft a new future.

Not a bad read. Just not a great read. Finished reading to find out who done it. Felt like eating a sandwich that was missing the meat. Filling but not nutritious.

Best scene: dropping Dr McCoy's middle name as he walked out the door.

This is the first book of Lee Goldberg's that I have read, and I thoughouly enjoyed it. It was a good story that moved along at a nice pace. Not your usual protagonist, definately some unexpected plot twists and an ejoyable ending. Some romance, some humor - worth a read.

I will be reading some more of Goldberg's books now.

Lee captures beautifully the transformation of a bumbling,awkward,PI wannabe security guard to a hardcore PI with conviction.Lee's simple but powerful writing style with great sense of humor helps to move the plot at jet speed.The mystery is well maintained.Lee has been able to maintain the reader hooked to the exploits of common man hero Harvey,and what he is really up to.An excellent read.
