    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    If you could sum up A Higher Call in three words, what would they be?

    Honor above all


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a great story on both sides. Learning more about the German soldiers is remarkable. To learn just what these young men went through is humbling.


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

    Robertson Dean is a great story teller and quickly becoming one of my favorites. If you like WWII aviation stories you need to Listen or buy Masters of the Air.


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

    The Beginning to the End.

    When a top Iranian source reveals that Iran is planning to bomb the United Nations, U.S. Intelligence begins counter-measures. Only Kealey sees it as a smokescreen for another, far more involved plot. But getting anyone to believe him isn't going to be easy. With only his ally, London's newest assistant chief, Naomi Kharmai, by his side, Ryan will have to operate outside the lines in order to prevent a terrible attack in a city on lockdown.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    What did you like best about this story?

    How close this story of fiction is to becoming fact


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

    The characters come to life only the way Guidall can do it.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to the entire series!
