    Hey, baby, Debbie and Edwina aren’t likely to thank anybody very much when a despicable sneak thief pilfers Elvis Presley’s blue suede shoes—the main exhibit at a Salt Lick, Texas, festival for the King. But with everyone’s favorite Southern detectives on the case, the proceedings are likely to be as tasty as a bacon, banana, and peanut-butter sandwich.

    Yes. Good for a road trip. Just fun to listen to without trying to figure out what the author is trying to get across.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Didn't care. It did however. Didn't figure it out until close to the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The big showdown at the end.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A film that will entertain you without trying to figure out the "deep meaning" of what the author is trying to say.

    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.

    In this rollicking tale, best-selling author Dixie Cash - author of My Heart May Be Broken but My Hair Still Looks Great - sets Salt Lick's own sleuthing cosmetologists on a collision course with the Big Apple. On an all-expenses-paid trip to a New York PI convention, the Texas Tornadoes hope to do some serious shopping. But that's before they stumble across a serial killer.

    The partners at Finley & Figg—all two of them—often refer to themselves as “a boutique law firm.” Boutique, as in chic, selective, and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who’ve been in the trenches much too long making way too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. But then change comes their way....

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    John says: "a great analysis"

    Would you listen to The Amateur again? Why?

    Yes. It is enlightening to hear an analysis of this man who basically fooled many of us.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry for our coiuntry if he gets re-elected.


    Any additional comments?

    He simply was not qualified to be President. He had no experience that made him even remotely qualifyed for the job except being a good speaker and said anything regardless if it was true or not.
