Here's what they said: Lee Goldberg and Joel Goldman founded Brash Books and these guys have been around the business for a while and wow, do they have a great eye for what to publish. They are putting out books by damn fine authors and they are terrific looking books as well. Two recent books that crossed our desk are Jack Lynch's The Missing and the Dead and The Dead Never Forget. What I love about what Lee and Joel are doing is that in a climate where so many people just want to bitch and moan about publishing, these guys rolled up their sleeves and said 'let's do this the... more
