* According to Coben, Robert Blake was also interviewed, but none of his stories made air because after his in-depth interview, he felt he had revealed too much and refused permission. His stories of childhood were harrowing stuff.

  1. The interview list is impressive. The photos bring to life the spirit of the show. Great artwork by Coben. Do I recognize Matt McCoy from Star Trek next generation? Good job.
