Filled with the very latest revelations on the sinister and deadly MIB, this book combines never-before-heard witness testimony with papers from some of the leading figures in UFO- and paranormal-themed research to provide an outstanding look at this creepy and disturbing phenomenon. The book takes the listener on a mysterious, macabre, and menacing journey into the world of the dark-suited silencers.

If you could sum up Poseidon's Gold in three words, what would they be?

interesting, compelling and enjoyable

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love falco. I like his wisdom, melancholy and ability to know human nature.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The way its read makes falco feel likable. Hearing the voices just makes it come alive. I much prefer listening to Falco than reading about him at moment. This is my favourite so far.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I enjoyed it especially the bonding with his dad to become the "didius" boys.

Any additional comments?

A book by a brilliant author, well read/acted and well worth every penny spent on it.
Thank you Anton Lesser et al...

At 1.28 a.m. on Wednesday, 23 March 2011, just three weeks after celebrating her 79th birthday, the biggest star Hollywood has ever known died. The tributes and eulogies to Elizabeth Taylor were legion. A weeping Elton John said, "We have just lost a Hollywood giant. More importantly, we have lost an incredible human being." In Elizabeth Taylor: The Lady, The Lover, The Legend, 1932–2011, acclaimed biographer David Bret has written the revealing, incisive and definitive life story of the most controversial cinematic icon since Mae West.
