Ain't That a Shamus
Congratulations to cousin Lee Goldberg, whose novel "The Man with the Iron-On Badge" has been nominated for a 2006 Shamus award by the Private Eye Writers of America. Lee's competitors include best-selling authors Walter Mosely and Michael Connelly. I'm hoping the organization bypasses those guys (who have enough honors) and recognizes Lee, who's been working in the private-eye genre -- both in print and on TV -- for around 20 years.
