fansmom sent me this link from New York Public Radio. It is an interview with someone from the FBI about how the Ten Most Wanted List came into being and how it works today. Interesting info! Thanks, fansmom! :cool:

Just doing a bit of catching up here. :blush: Thanks for this ; I enjoyed listening to it. Interesting how the list came about as in pretty much accidentally. But a 90% success rate with it (if I remember correctly) certainly shows results.

Well, I know. The thing is that I have a lot more than that to catch up on. I've only had my first read of the book, which I always do at breakneck speed, just to get the big picture. The trouble with that is I always need a second read, to get the detail, and whenever I start it, I get interrupted. And I can't read like that. I have to pick up a book, and keep my nose in it until it's finished. For a woman, I am seriously useless at multi-tasking! To tell you the truth, I am just a little lost just right now because of so many locations and all. So I plan to look at the location tidbits as I find them in the book. Thankfully, I have a break from work coming up, when I can catch up.

And there is a lot of detail in this book, not to mention a cast of hundreds!

Thank goodness for those photos in the front! I referred back to them dozens of times.

I did too. Once I got the flow of the story it helped but the characters overlapped into each others stories so that got a bit confusing at times. Just imagine how the FBI felt! :lol:
