This a great work of historical fiction. The flipping between the past and present within the book allowed for the story to unfold to become more complete as I moved through it. It kept my attention from beginning to end.

Thank you Lt. Dan ( Gary Sinise ) for everything you have done to make sure our service men and women know we appreciate their service. I have a tradition when I return home from travels. I stop at the Lambert Airport USO and donate some money. We should all find one way we can show our gratitude for being able to live in such a great country!

Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he once competed against was bringing back memories, of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers, and the groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent ride of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can't relive, and a present he may not survive.

These were some great reads/listens. Joe Ledger coming to life through other writers was great. I especially liked hearing Ghost’s side of the story. Hearing things from others point of view brings more meaning and enjoyment. If only I was buying a ticket to the theater...

Thank you Ray Porter for given the World Class Smart Ass a voice.
