    "Priced Too High"

    If you are a fan of the authors, you'll have a great time hanging out with them ('cept Mr. Wambaugh, he doesn't say much) for an hour.

    Their banter is better than most stand-up.

    But if you're like me, looking for some insight into the craft of detective fiction, there's little here to take away.

    Should be 99 cents.
