Only seven U.S. submariners earned the Medal of Honor in World War II. Sam Dealey, the USS Harder's commander, was one of them. His honor was awarded posthumously after the entire crew was lost off Bataan during a depth-charge attack in August 1944 by a Japanese convoy. The Harder's fighting spirit is legendary, and its record of sinking a total of eighteen enemy ships (with a tonnage in excess of 55,000) made Dealey one of the top five submarine skippers in the war. During a single patrol his crew sank five enemy destroyers in five short-range torpedo attacks - an unprecedented feat. In addition, the Harder played important roles in rescue missions, extracting secret operatives deep in enemy territory and saving downed pilots. Drawing on previously untapped sources, Michael Sturma, an Australian teaching at Murdoch University, details several daring missions, one that involved the heroic Australian commando Bill Jinkins, and puts the Harder's action in the context of the overall Pacific campaign. In do so, the author adds not only significant information to the Harder's story but also provides a fresh perspective on the submarine war.

Running a marathon is tough enough. It’s even harder to outrun death. Erick Anderssen is the best-selling author of a series of how-to books for baby boomers seeking inner knowledge and strong thighs. Now Erick’s next book is due, and his agent, for mysterious reasons, is pushing hard for him to write about the experience of training to run the GrandHotel Chicago Marathon—where his egotistical ex-wife is the race director. But before he can even begin work on the book, a shocking and violent death derails his research. Before he knows it, Erick is racing to uncover the secrets of the marathon—all while fending off assaults, bomb threats, international fraud, and strange disappearances. Along the way, Erick encounters a wide and fascinating cast of characters—fading Olympians, international singing sensations, aggressive Chicago cops, and a photographer who he believes is hiding a terrible secret—running steadily toward what may be a tragic outcome at the finish line. In his debut novel, Death at a Distance, long-time Chicagoan Mark A. Nystuen, whose twelve-year leadership helped the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon become one of the largest participatory sporting events in the world, gives readers a vivid, local’s-eye view of contemporary Chicago—its politics, its world-class food scene, and its history—as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the personality clashes, compromises, and conflicts involved in running—or running in—one of the largest marathons in the world.

When a murder is committed sex or money, or both is seldomly not involved. Fresh from solving the bizarre murders of three pregnant women Detective Inspector Siobhan Burrows and Detective Segeant Amy Rhodes of the St Albans Police force find that both motives are present in their next case. Charles Roberts, brother-in-law of Cynthia Roberts, one of the recently murdered pregnant women, is shot outside the Jackdaw Pub. Why anyone should seek the death of an apparantly inoffensive salesman of truffles and live escargot, who is based in France, is a mystery which deepens when Amy, paired with SOCO Chief Sean O'Driscoll, follows the trail and discover an inordinately large amunt of money in the victim's French bank account. Sean and Amy also discover an attraction between themselves which leads them into a passionate affair. This is completely at odds with the sadistic streak shown by Amy when she 'interviews' an agent from MI6 who, she believes, holds some clues as to the motives behind the murder. Meanwhile, in England, siobhan Burrows, working with computer whiz, Detective Constable Roger Paulson and under the supervision of Detective Chief Inspector St John (pronounced Sinjun) Harcourt is following a line of enquiry closer to her home patch of St Albans. It seems to be leading nowhere until a second man is murdered and three police officers, left to guard his empty house and the secrets it may contain, are brutally shot. Harcourt suspects that forces more secret and outside the purview of the police force are in play and, while love and sex break out between his subordinates, he ponders: Is he right? Enquiries take the team into the fringe world of espionage and arbitrage, a high powered system of wheeler dealing using hundreds of millions of borrowed funds to fince what could be illicit major products around the world. To protect their schemes, those involved consider murder as relatively unimportant. St John and his team do not and dradually they home in on the man who, almost almost beyond belief, is behind it all.

In the Sierra mountain wilderness, she and her friend Isabel—an avid horsewoman and Darwin devotee--will race across one hundred miles of spectacular gorges and cross heart-stopping fords.? Meanwhile, Stephen and Tink's husband, Charlie, are nearby working on a new partnership with the brilliant but secretive scientist James Grant-Worthington.

Eager to help, Tink begins searching for clues, starting with Josh Untemeyer, the PR manager for the institute Grant-Worthington founded to promote the theory of intelligent design, who has also been pursuing Isabel. As Tink and Isabel join the pack of elite riders and their horses scramble up the vertiginous, narrow trail, Josh goes missing. Tink must sort through the secrets and lies in a race against time to cross the finish line and save the two people she cares for most in this lively, page-turning novel from acclaimed author Holly Menino.
