    It’s not even a clue. It’s a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time. Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he’s asking questions that few have asked before....

    What made the experience of listening to The Third Bullet the most enjoyable?

    the peformance was flawless, the accents accurate and the timing perfect. The plot moved with enough twists and turns to keep the action going and me guessing. The conspiracy was completely plausible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    A sixty seven year old hero ...nuff said.


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

    this was my first.


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

    When the hero identified his father with the slain officer Tippet.

    Would you listen to The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian again? Why?

    Yes. The joy in living is evident in the voice of the author and even his hardships are told with humor and understanding.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The opportunity to view a life that is unknown to me.


    What does Sherman Alexie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The sing song accent of an American Indian. It adds so much to the narrative that would have been missed by hearing my own voice in my head.

    yes

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.
