Inside Delta Force: The Story of America's Elite C&hellip by Eric Haney;

I was fortunate to meet Mr. Haney when he was promoting this book at a radio show I previously worked at (The Radio Chick). All I can say is that you can "just tell" Mr. Haney is exactly everything he claims to be.

Robert responded by saying he doesn't know himself, but expected there to be about 3 more volumes before the story is completed.
Since the signing was for Winter's Heart (book 9), and Crossroads is book 10, that means RJ will have to wrap up all the loose ends in 2 volumes. Unfortunately, I just don't see that happening, and this book helped little to persuade me otherwise.
Crossroads of Twilight is aptly named. Most of the characters here are indeed at a crossroads, where they… Read more
