Deal: Patch reader and Ocean City Director of Public Relations Mark Soifer recommends the "best book deal in town": Rhyme and Punishment: The Biography of Martin Z. Mollusk, available for $5 at Sun Rose Book Store at 756 Asbury Ave. or from City Public Relations, City Hall Annex, 901 Asbury Ave., 609-525-9300.
