Friendly bar chat on all manner of topics, but especially about great stuff on Kindle. Pull up a stool and relax a while.
A penny saved is ridiculous.

Seeing as I just got one of those snazzy new Kindle Paperwhites, I'll have to check out how it looks there. But wherever you read this blog, try to have a cold beer or crisp chardonnay in front of you to deliver the full effect.
Once again working from notes and fragments provided by the late Mickey Spillane, the always reliable Max Allan Collins has created a solidly entertaining mystery/thriller with Lady, Go Die!, the originally-envisioned follow up to the first Mike Hammer novel, I, The Jury.
The book starts out with Mike, still reeling from the events in that first famous novel, taking a short vacation in a sleepy seaside town to get his bearings back. But he soon learns, first hand, that the sleepy town isn't as sleepy as it first seemed. Before he knows it, Mike and his faithful secretary and sidekick Velda are knee deep in murder, crooked cops, organized crime, and ultimately, true evil.
Scary, puzzling, funny (I loved the way Hammer always referred to his car as "the heap"), Lady, Go Die! is another great Spillane/Collins collaboration. There hasn't been a bad one yet.
