A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean
by Tori Murden McClure

For every year that the ocean rowing establishment forges onward more narratives are added to the growing list of trans ocean titles, and whilst all are bold adventures few can match the story telling of Tori Murden. Tori makes sure to include the technicalities of making such a voyage but along the way she lets you into to her past....And when Tori and the Pearl are hit by two successive hurricanes she allows you to witness her struggle to accept that to abandon ship is not defeat, but a chance to come back and do it again, and succeed.

Guantanamo Diary Guantanamo Diary
by Mohamedou Ould Slahi

Mohamedou Ould Slahi has been prisoner #760 at Guantánamo Bay military prison since 2002....You are excused for imagining Slahi's memoir would be filled with bitterness and invective. It is not. In remarkably readable colloquial English (Slahi's fourth language, which he taught himself in prison) this young, pious Muslim details his treatment with poignancy and dark humor....Larry Siems, author and human rights activist, edited the manuscript with a light hand, preferring direct impressions of Slahi to a tidy chronological tale. He did yeoman's work digging through public records and news reports in order to augment redacted passages with copious footnotes. Highly recommended. (read more)

Die Again: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel Die Again: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel
by Tess Gerritsen

I have read all of Tess Gerritsen's books and was excited when her new book was released....This was one of her best books and most exciting reads (I would rate it as high as 'The Surgeon')....There appears to have been a lot of research for this book, with much information on 'big cats' and their behaviors. This is a fast paced fabulous book that kept me guessing until the end....Well done! (read more)

If you ever lived in Greenwich Village or romanticize the early days of the 20th Century in NYC, then this is a good read for you. (read more)

The Lost Spy: An American in Stalin's Secret Service The Lost Spy: An American in Stalin's Secret Service
by Andrew Meier

Intriguing story. One reads that the gulag system consumed untold numbers of Russians and even some foreigners, this book helps put a human face on those multitudes. I'm impressed that the author was able to construct this book from so little direct information....This book touched on many aspects of 20th history, the Russian Revolution, Stalin, WWII, neo-Cons, and McCarthyism. One detail that I found particularly fascinating was a Soviet project to counterfeit US dollars to help fund the Soviet government. The book is interesting spy story with a easily digested history lesson to go along with it. (read more)
