A cowboy singer and actor, Roy Rogers was one of the most popular Western stars of the twentieth century. Appearing in over one hundred films beginning in 1935, as well as numerous television and radio appearances, he became known as the “King of the Cowboys”. A glamorized version of the archetypal cowboy, he was the embodiment of the all-American hero to many.
Living on a farm with no radio, Roy’s family had to make their own entertainment when he grew up. On Saturday nights, they treated neighbors to square dances at which Roy would sing, play mandolin and call the dances. He also learned to yodel.
Roy was often joined by his wife, Dale Evans, known as “the Queen of the West”, whom he met on the set of The Cowboy and the Senorita, in his productions, as well as his regular co-stars, his famous golden palomino Trigger, which was known for his ability to do tricks.
Roy Rogers’ radio show ran for nine years before moving to television in 1951. Originally having a western music and variety format, the show later introduced storylines involving outlaws, tall tales or cliffhangers involving a deed to a ranch, but no matter what the story, there was always time for a light-hearted song or two.
The Roy Rogers Show, sponsored over the years by Post Cereals, Goodyear Tires, Quaker Oats, Dodge-Plymouth and others was transcribed as Roy's contractual obligations precluded him from performing live. Roy, put a clause into his 1940 contract with Republic Pictures that gave him the right to his likeness, voice and name for merchandising. This opened the door for Roy Rogers action figures, novels, play-sets, a comic strip, a long-running Dell comic book series, lunch-boxes, folding knifes, cookie jars, cap guns, watches, and much more. Eventually, Roy Rogers was second only to Walt Disney in the amount of items featuring his name.

Read by Nick Santa Maria
Thousands of busy persons bent over their desks in the tallest building in the world — conducting the commerce of the nation — when suddenly the steel girders began to creak and twist, and the gigantic edifice swayed giddily in the rising wind. Never before had criminal brains devised a more cunning or a more horrible weapon to garner their ill-gotten treasures. And never before was the Spider so strenuously put to test — for the Master, the man behind the devastation and death, eluded every suspicion, foresaw every contingency, left no tell-tale clues behind him as he ravaged, slayed and pillaged... Richard Wentworth, working for once hand in hand with the organized forces of law and order, fights the grimmest battle of his long career. Can the Spider avenge the countless dead who have already fallen? Can he bring the Murder Master to the justice he so richly deserves?
Norvell W. Page, described him this way: For Richard Wentworth was a nemesis of the night, a swift and secret avenger who meted out lethal justice to those of the Underworld who dared to raise their hand against humanity; he was the man known throughout half the civilized world as the Spider, and tonight he wore the disguise that would instantly identify him as that dread killer. A long, black cape covered twisted shoulders. A broad-brimmed hat tightly pulled down over a lank wig shadowed a beak-nosed face. The eyes that glittered there were steely with bitter hatred.
As for Wentworth himself, he believed in his mission implicitly: He was, he told himself, no longer a human being, but a cause. He was the Spider! He must live to defend humanity....
Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem and mystery that perfectly evokes 1935 Manhattan. The City Destroyer, originally published in The Spider magazine, January, 1935.

by Paul Bishop
Read by Milton Bagby
With her special abilities, top LAPD Robbery-Homicide detective Calamity Jane Randall thought she knew all about interrogation until she was partnered with detective Ray Pagan. Wielding a suspect’s vocal intonations, emotions, and physical gestures like a scalpel, Pagan’s empathetic lie catching abilities are legendary.
Both detectives are scarred by past tragedies, but together they threaten to tear the city apart searching for a duo of missing children – a search where the right answer to the wrong question can mean sudden death.
Ripped from the experiences of thirty-five year veteran LAPD detective and nationally recognized interrogator, Paul Bishop, Lie Catchers takes the reader inside the dark and dangerous mind games of the men and women for whom truth is an obsession.
“Paul Bishop is the real deal—real cop, real writer. You never go wrong with a Bishop novel.”
Max Allan Collins, bestselling author of Road to Perdition 
Lie Catchers crackles with authenticity. Bishop’s thirty-five years as an LAPD Top Cop fuels a turbo-charged novel.”
Robert Crais, bestselling author of the Elvis Cole novels. 
“Paul Bishop’s experience as a top-shelf interrogator shines through the pages of Lie Catchers, a fascinating emotional story of truth, redemption, and justice. Bishop presents an intriguing cornucopia of characters, each with their own secrets, motivations, and desires—including the dedicated detectives who use avant-garde techniques to sort through deception and lies. Lie Catchers is an outstanding debut to the series featuring top LAPD interrogators Ray Pagan and Calamity Jane Randall.”
Kathy Bennett, author of the LAPD Detective Maddie Divine series 
“Paul Bishop weaves a fictional account so vivid you feel as if you’re riding shotgun with the investigating officers. A crackling good story, you’ll love Pagan and Randall, Bishop’s latest dynamic duo.”
Robin Burcell, bestselling author of The Last Good Place 
“Through the narrative of Lie Catchers, Paul Bishop opens the door to the secrets of police interrogation, giving us a unique take on L.A. crime. With dynamics worthy of Sherlock Holmes, Ray Pagan and ‘Calamity’ Jane Randall are unlike any detectives you’ve seen before... their methods are entirely fresh.”
Sam HawkenThe Night Charter 
“Lie Catchers is a remarkable journey into police interrogation tactics and the study of criminal psychology. Bishop has been there and knows all the intimate details. Authenticity simply spills across the pages.”
O’Neil De Noux, author of the LaStanza novels
