    Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan has written hard-hitting articles from hot spots around the world. But when a controversial report from a war-torn region is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation crashes and burns. Now he lives in virtual exile - haunted by bad decisions and the shocking truth he can never prove: that his downfall was a deliberate act of sabotage by an unknown enemy. But before Sagan can end his torment with the squeeze of a trigger, fate intervenes....

    What disappointed you about The Columbus Affair?

    Formula and cliche ...I felt like it was 1 part National Treasure 1 part Davinci Code and not the best parts of either


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure...I am kind of stuck..I read a ton and listen to a ton of audio books. Looking forward to Nelson DeMilles release in Sept.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    Awesome...does a great job as always


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Columbus Affair?

    I would probably skip the book all together

    I thought this could have been 2 or 3 books...The "missions" didn't tie well together. I loved getting a feel for what these guys o through and do on our behalf as part of our armed forces and am curious to see the movie. I would recommend this to a friend.
