And finally, if you’d like to be an Audible reviewer, here’s your chance. I just finished an amazing project, and we need some reviews on Audible to help give it some traction. CBS News reporter Charles Gomez was fearless when facing down dictators. Earning an Emmy and an Edward R. Murrow Award, the Latin correspondent and son of a Cuban immigrant seemed on top of the world. But the terror of exposing his sexuality and AIDS diagnosis led him down a dark path of drugs and depression that nearly destroyed him.

This week we continue our series of Riders of the Purple Sage, by Zane Grey. Today we return to Venters and his dilemma. He had just shot the famed Masked Rider, afterwards discovering that the rider was, in fact, an unarmed young woman. 

And now, Riders of the Purple Sage, part 4 of 12, by Zane Grey
