Description

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.

(This book was previously released under the title The Man With the Iron-On Badge and nominated for Best Novel by the Private Eye Writers of America)

    At first you wonder if the whole thing is a spoof of hardboiled detective stories, but eventually you realize that you are enjoying the tale and
    can't put it down. A gate-guard security guy is hired by a wealthy
    resident to follow his wife. The investigation by this rank amateur
    takes you places you Would never suspect.

    Watch Me Die. Erica Spindler. 2011. Chris’ mother gave me this book a year or so ago, and I am sorry that I waited this long to read it. It is a popular “lady in distress” novel with lots of suspense. Even though it doesn’t say so, this may be a series. I have read a novel with the police detective, Spenser Malone, in it. Mira is a stained glass artist who is putting her life back together after surviving Katrina by restoring damaged church windows. Mira’s husband was killed in the hurricane, and she blames herself for his death as do her in-laws. The windows she restored in a church are desecrated and a priest is killed. Before she can catch breath, she is robbed, and then another murder occurs. She is dreaming of her late husband and has smelled his cologne. Is she going crazy? Is she responsible for the murders? I stayed up all night to finish this!
