    And Then the Darkness is a gripping account of the disappearance in the Australian Outback of English tourist Peter Falconio. His girlfriend, Joanne Lees, was found cut, bleeding and wandering the highway, her hands bound. Joanne's account of her ordeal sparked a frenzy of media interest and the biggest manhunt ever mounted in Australia. Questions arose about the police operation and about Joanne herself.

    Interesting story but wayyyy too much gulping sounds from narrator. Couldn't that be edited out? Enjoy the story, swallow by swallow.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Stephen King just gets better. This is a wonderful ride with a great main character who just wants to do the right thing. I enjoyed the glimpse of the past as well as King's view of what might have been. Even if you aren't a fan of King, try this. It's an easy listen - especially if you have to dip in and out over commutes. Wasson is one of the best and I loved hearing his various voices. Definately credit-worthy.

    Story
    (202)

    On April 23, 1967, Prisoner #416J, an inmate at the notorious Missouri State Penitentiary, escaped in a breadbox. Fashioning himself Eric Galt, this nondescript thief and con man - whose real name was James Earl Ray -drifted through the South, into Mexico, and then Los Angeles, where he was galvanized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. With relentless storytelling drive, Sides follows Galt and King as they crisscross the country, one stalking the other, until the crushing moment at the Lorraine Motel.

    E. L. Robertson says: "Who Knew"
    "Great detail, historically honest"
    Overall

    There's so much more to this story than I knew before. Sides has done a great service researching the minute detail of the weapons, places and people while the witnesses are still alive.
    I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to know the whole story of the end of Martin Luther King's too short life.
    I only wish the author who was so dedicated to the facts had spent more time trying to get into James Earl Ray's head and assessing motivation.
    Great read. Don't pass this one up.
