Roker brings this legendary disaster and its aftermath into brilliant focus. Exploring the impact of the disaster on a rising nation's confidence, he illuminates both the energy and the limitations of the American Century, and of nature itself
The talk show murders : a Billy Blessing novel by Al Roker( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Billy Blessing wasn't always a celebrity chef. He wasn't always a TV host. He wasn't always such a nice guy. He wasn't even always Billy Blessing. He's reminded of this when an ex-cop named Pine shows up at his hotel and reminds him of Billy Blanchard, a small-time con who nearly swindled Motown from Berry Gordy before doing a year in prison. His associates, though, did a lot more time, and a few of them have ended up murdered. Pine will keep this quiet ... for a fee ... Billy's in a tight spot that gets even tighter when Pine turns up dead. The cops don't suspect Billy, but that doesn't mean his past can't still come back to haunt him--or even get him killed as well. With blackmail abound, bodies adding up, a budding romance, and a television audience of millions, Billy is definitely in the glare of the brightest spotlight. Keeping his name clear is one challenge, keeping his head attached to his body is another, and Billy will have to rely on the very past he's trying to put behind him if he's going to survive, and move forward one and for all"--
