Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he’s too smart to be a cop, but it’s pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country’s hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.

Would you try another book from Billy Graham and/or Tom Dooley?

Such a wonderful subject. Angles are to be experienced as part of our relationship with God.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Would have added more scriptures

What aspect of Tom Dooley’s performance would you have changed?

He did well.

Do you think Angels needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

would not be a bad idea, could add more scripture

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The Story it self is good

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would use fewer "god damms" they were interrupting and not properly used, just inserted to be inserted. did not add anything to the story, and was just used to many times. It's not necessary to use cruse words to make a good exciting story, the excitement was there with our them.

What about Rex Linn’s performance did you like?

Great performance with lots of characters. Good voice, He held my attention without loosing me.

Could you see Robert B. Parker's The Bridge being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This is absolutely movie material

Any additional comments?

I hope there is enough Robert B. Parker material that the series can continue. getting ready to read the last one in the series. Thanks for all the listening enjoyment.

Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.
