LITMEME: I just bought, for my Kindle, The Hangman's Daughter, by Oliver Potzsch, or possibly Patzsch (depending on which web site you're reading). I bought it because it seemed right up my alley, but also because it's currently #1 on the list of Kindle bestsellers (and has been in the Kindle top 100 since its publication in mid-December).
This is weird, right? I had literally never heard of this book until I bought it. As far as I can tell, it's not on any New York Times bestseller lists, and Barnes & Noble says that it doesn't even have any copies in stock. There isn't even a Wikipedia page. How could there not be a Wikipedia page for a best-selling book?
I'm sure somebody can explain it to me, but I'm baffled about what could explain how the book is catching fire electronically but doesn't even merit a mention elsewhere.
