    It’s a chilling reality that homicide investigators know all too well: The last face most murder victims see is not that of a stranger, but of someone familiar. Whether only an acquaintance or a trusted intimate, such killers share a common trait that triggers the downward spiral toward death for someone close to them: They are masters at hiding who they really are. Their clever masks let them appear safe, kind, and truthful. They are anything but - and almost no one can detect the murderous impulses buried deep in their psyches.

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Going Clear to be better than the print version?

    Yes because I listen while I drive


    What other book might you compare Going Clear to and why?

    None I can think of


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they discussed the murders they are suspected of being involved in & the calculating plans and steps taken to intimidate former members, joirnalists and any outspoken opponents.


    Any additional comments?

    Be preparred to give up your Tom Cruise movies...I can't bring myself to watch any of them anymore...I have no respect.

    Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit. In the fall of 2007, the 20-year-old college coed left Seattle to study abroad in Italy, but her life was shattered when her roommate was murdered in their apartment. After a controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011, an appeals court overturned the decision and vacated the murder charge. Free at last, she returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now.

    Brock says: "A Fascinating Story- Buy it now!"
    "Eye opening story about the Italian injustice"

    I was shocked to hear about children being raised in prisons with their Mothers


    What three words best describe Amanda Knox’s performance?

    Passionate, detailed &


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I think that anyone who hasn't been a victim of a flawed justice system may grow tired of some of the detail recounted by Amanda but I loved it!

    I would love to see a 2nd book in a few years to see how far Amanda has com in life!

    This nonfiction legal thriller traces the 14-year struggle of two lawyers to bring the most powerful coal baron in American history to justice. Don Blankenship, head of Massey Energy since the early 1990s, ran an industry that provides nearly half of America’s electric power. But wealth and influence weren’t enough for Blankenship and his company, as they set about destroying corporate and personal rivals, challenging the Constitution, purchasing the West Virginia judiciary, and willfully disregarding safety standards in the company’s mines - mines in which scores died unnecessarily.
