    Fact: The world's largest crop of opium is harvested from the fertile fields of war-torn Afghanistan. It is rushed through Iran to processing labs in Turkey, where it is turned into pure-grade heroin. Fact or fiction? With the profits from these dealings, Iran has acquired six nuclear weapons of mass destruction from the Russians. The line between fact and fiction is so tight in Larry Collins' thriller, The Road to Armageddon, that listeners will find themselves short of breath trying to separate the reality of this tense yarn from the evening's headlines.

    The Memory Keeper is the story of Tomas Romero, a native of the Acjachemen band, whom the Spanish rename Juaneno. Born in 1820 in San Juan Capistrano, Tomas attends the mission school where, in addition to the catechism, he learns to read, write, and cipher - uncommon for the Indians in San Juan at the time. Because Tomas assists the padres, he becomes aware of the world outside the small religious community.
