    It's in Volume II. The article can be read on the McCammon site:

    https://www.robertmccammon.com/bio/

    It was published in 2002---before Speaks the Nightbird was published---so it's really out-of-date now.

The selected Bibliographies are chock full of interesting suggestions. These books are older 1985, but they are full of meaningful historical information. And they’re cheap since they are X-Library books, however since they were reference books and didn’t circulate, they are in great shape. I paid $7.00 for this set including shipping. I found a couple of other interesting sets and will post them as they arrive.

    Here's one I found Ron.

    I believe they have made a few adaptations. American Made is another.

I'm sure you'll have no problem snapping something good up.

They evacuated the Shah of Iran and lost a plan while running drugs for the CIA in Central America. The owner had lions on his property. We could hear them roar from his backyard.
