    The Assassins' Gate, so dubbed by American soldiers, is the entrance to the American zone in the city of Baghdad. In 2003, the United States blazed into Iraq to depose dictator Saddam Hussein. But after three years and unknown thousands killed, that country faces an escalating civil war and an uncertain fate. How did it get to this point?

    D. Flagg says: "Highly Recommended"
    "worth a second listen"
    Overall

    If you want to understand what went wrong in Iraq, this is a good place to start. Packer begins in Iraq and backtracks to Washington where the neocons are busy trying to con the American people and stifle their critics. One of the most moving sections is devoted to a family who has lost a son in Iraq and is left wondering who and what to believe.

    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "what ending?"
    Overall

    A conspiracy but no final explanation for the conspiracy? Oh, wait, here's the explanation: the events of 9/11 were meant to coverup the downing of TWA800 by a terrorist. I love a good thriller with a conspiracy thrown in (3 days of the Condor comes to mind) but this borders on fantasy.
