On September 15, 1963, a Klan-planted bomb went off in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Fourteen-year-old Carolyn Maull was just a few feet away when the bomb exploded, killing four of her friends in the girl’s restroom she had just exited. It was one of the seminal moments in the Civil Rights movement, a sad day in American history . . . and the turning point in a young girl’s life. While the World Watched is a poignant and gripping eyewitness account of life in the Jim Crow South: from the bombings, riots, and assassinations to the historic marches and triumphs that characterized the Civil Rights movement. A uniquely moving exploration of how racial relations have evolved over the past 5 decades, While the World Watched is an incredible testament to how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go.

David Huntzinger, M.D. (Medical Doctor or Master Detective) By: Robert M. Thompson David “Butch” Huntzinger is discharged from a CIA spy mission and returns to Kearney, Nebraska, to complete his college education and then enroll in medical school. He reconnects with a high school buddy, Zeke. Over Labor Day weekend in Honolulu, they discover a body on the beach. Federal agents believe that the dead man is part of a huge illegal antiquities operation centered in the Middle East. Federal agents in conjunction with members of the United Nations Security Council prevail on Butch to return to the Middle East in an effort to stop the illegal trade in antiquities with a promise to pay five million dollars if he succeeds. After much soul-searching and advice from Zeke, Butch accepts the challenge. He is successful, but the government is reluctant to pay him. A breakdown in CIA communications and a disastrous Taliban attack on several military posts in Afghanistan, prompt the CIA to ask Butch’s assistance in finding out what went wrong, with the promise of payment of an additional one million dollars plus the five million. Reluctantly, Butch and his ex-spy partner, Stan, successfully pinpoint the cause of the breakdown. Butch completes his medical training in forensics and becomes involved with deaths of two members of a prominent Kearney pioneer family. They appear to have been poisoned by aconite and Butch is on the trail of the murderer.
