Golden Throat, a raw, heart-pounding epic adventure of danger, love, and murderous intrigue, is the premier release of a non-stop murder mystery series set in 1930s LA by the atmospheric and detailed author, James P. Alsphert. Golden Throat is about the life and times of Cable Denning, an ex-cop turned private eye who faces head-on the forces and violence of an unjust world both in this and other dimensions. Alsphert introduces Cable Denning, the hero and vigilante of this spell-binding 22-book murder mystery series. As an LA policeman, he is disillusioned with the corruption within the LAPD. When he ultimately opts for the life of a private detective, the adventure begins.The audiobook opens at what first appears to be a typical crime scene. Cable accidentally stumbles upon a mysterious golden capsule, lodged in the throat of a not-quite-human victim at the local morgue. This results in a dangerous and covert case that will follow and haunt him as he is pursued by sinister underground criminals and powerful organizations, both terrestrial and non-terrestrial.Always looking over his shoulder into the shadows of constant danger and armed with his .38, a packet of Lucky Strikes, and a hidden flask of gin, he hears a distant sax playing in his head as he walks the streets of LA, escaping whenever possible into the smoky dives, searching out the sultry voice of an alluring songstress as she pours out the heartbeat of the city through the Great American Songbook.Cable drinks himself into oblivion and is found by Adora who, at his side, breathes fresh life and love into him. From the midst of seemingly overwhelming horror and psychic trauma, Cable emerges with one of his brilliantly observant narratives that always ends with him back on his feet and answering his telephone, ´´Yeah, Cable Denning here....” 1.

During television´s first fifty years -- long before cable networks, Hulu, Netflix, and the like -- families would gather around their television sets nightly to watch entertaining shows such as I Love Lucy, Gunsmoke, M*A*S*H, The Beverly Hillbillies, Fantasy Island , and The Rockford Files . Many of the stars of these beloved shows have passed away, but their presence remains intact -- not only through their television show performances, which are still viewed and appreciated today, but also through stories they told in interviews over the years. Seasoned journalists and authors James Bawden and Ron Miller have captured provocative and entertaining interviews with important figures from TV´s first fifty years. These thirty-nine interviews, selected from conversations conducted from 1971--1998, present a fascinating glimpse of some of television´s most influential performers. Featured are exclusive interviews with major stars (including Donna Reed, James Garner, and Ricardo Montalban), icons of comedy (including Lucille Ball, George Burns, and Milton Berle), TV hosts (including Dick Clark and Ed Sullivan), and notable musical entertainers (such as Glen Campbell, Mary Martin, and Lawrence Welk). Each chapter of this volume explores the subject´s television work -- with detailed behind-the-scenes disclosures -- and includes additional information about the subject´s performances in film and on stage.
