Question What's the difference? Same book, listed twice

$5.59 - http://www.amazon.com/Homicide-Year-.../dp/B001KYF276

$7.99 - http://www.amazon.com/Homicide-Year-.../dp/B0022NI0JG

They have different covers but it seems to be the same book despite the $7.99 listed as being longer. I bought and read the $5.59 one and it seems to be the full book (has added chapters talking about the author and The Wire tv show)

It doesn't affect me now but I am curious.

All the links from the physical hardback and paperback versions point to the Canongate version. Holt published the paperback, though, so perhaps why they have an e-book version as well.
