    It is 1908, and international tensions are mounting as the world plunges toward war. When a brilliant American battleship gun designer dies in a sensational apparent suicide, the man's grief-stricken daughter turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency to clear her father's name. Van Dorn puts his chief investigator on the case, and Isaac Bell soon realizes that the clues point not to suicide but to murder.

    A richly detailed and dramatic account of one of the greatest achievements of humankind. At 9:32 A.M. on July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 rocket launched in the presence of more than a million spectators who had gathered to witness a truly historic event. It carried Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins to the last frontier of human imagination: the moon.

    What did you love best about Rocket Men?

    I grew up during the space race. Astronauts on tv was an almost daily occurance. This behind the scenes look at the program from the prespective of Apollo 11 as the pinnacle deepened and broadened my understanding and respect for everyone involved with the space program. It also makes me a little sad to see what we were able to then and how small and lost without a clear goal NASA has become.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite has always been Gene Krantz. He understood the only way we would succees was for everyone to give their best every day.


    What about Richard McGonagle’s performance did you like?

    His straightforward delivery.


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

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    Some od the author's editorializing at the end was jarring and seemed, to me, out of place.
