Free (nook/Kindle) Badge of Evil by Whit Masterson [Vintage Pulp Suspense Thriller]

Badge of Evil by Whit Masterson* is a vintage pulp cop crime suspense thriller, originally published by Dodd Mead in 1956 and adapted to film as the classic Touch of Evil by Orson Welles. This is e-reprinted and offered free courtesy of publisher Adams Media's Prologue Books imprint.

I guess last week when I said I hope they would offer more freebies that I hadn't bought during the big sale I jinxed it, as this is one of the 132 I paid 99 cents a pop for. Oh well, at least I get a "free" ePub copy now and I sincerely hope that the authors have lived to a sufficiently advanced old age to enjoy whatever portion of the 30 cents worth of royalties that Amazon passed on to Prologue to pass on to them.

(ETA: Turns out that one of them is still alive, though over 90 years old. Hopefully those payments reach him in time.)

I wonder if they're going to continue to offer these free every week or they'll eventually switch out with their other fiction/specialty imprints. Only 131 more to go! At least, for the titles I went and paid for...

Currently free @ B&N and Amazon UK (likely to drop in the main store).

Description
The Universal International film based on this outstanding American suspense-thriller stars Charles Heston, Janet Leigh and Orson Welles, who plays the part of a tough veteran cop whose reputation is at stake in the solution of a brutal murder …

* Who turns out to be the pseudonym for two other authors, who turn out to have a secondary dual identity as also Prologue-republished Wade Miller, whom I also bought stuff from, which I now also expect to see turn up free due to my having bought it.
