    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can read in them stories of brief or long lives and use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. 206 Bones opens with Tempe regaining consciousness and discovering that she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet. Who wants Tempe dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct...

    If you could sum up The Panther in three words, what would they be?

    To slow with all the planning scenes ,for myself during these as they were to consuming an some made no sense other than to make up nothing later on


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the comic relief was enjoyable. The long planning an soliliquies were some what tedious after a while was not that interesting


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was the first one will try an abrbriged version next time


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

    Honestly I just wanted it to get over with as I have said before this version is to slow

    An airliner’s controls abruptly fail mid-flight over the Atlantic. An oil tanker runs aground in Japan when its navigational system suddenly stops dead. Hospitals everywhere have to abandon their computer databases when patients die after being administered incorrect dosages of their medicine. In the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl when its cooling systems malfunction. At first, these random computer failures seem like unrelated events.
