Summary

Loneliness is that fine line between the emptiness that claims us and the warmth of self-love that embraces our soul. Grey is the color we use to describe sadness, helplessness, fear but, with only a breath of hope, it fills our life with color. Pain is that old friend with whom you have a couple of drinks and sooner or later, it ends up teaching you how to carry on despite the blows. Uncertainty is that heart with red-hot wounds that makes us wonder how, when, why…
"The Boy with the Sad Eyes" is full of lines that question, that make us think, that cry out to be read, just as every scar we bear asks to be healed. It is a book that tells us about living, not just surviving, because when we survive there is still a part of us that wants to die. Within its pages we find an invitation to resurface from that dry land, to take root, believe and trust again and, above all, to love once more.
If you ever felt like you were sinking in the sea of desolation, these lines will touch even the deepest fibers of your soul.

    Volume 2. Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar began in 1949 as a typical slam-bang detective series and, though consistently well written and acted, the series never really captured an enthusiastic audience. However, in the fall of 1955, Bob Bailey took over the title role, veteran director Jack Johnstone and writers John Dawson, Robert Ryf, and Les Crutchfield joined the production team, and the series was transformed into a quarter-hour, five-a-week “strip” show. The result was a rebirth for “America’s favorite freelance insurance investigator”, as Bailey assumed the role of a lifetime, the writers had the chance to develop the depth of the stories, and the new cliffhanging nature of the series made radio’s dwindling listening audience want to tune in day after day.
