A contemporary novel of action, love, danger and emotion. Plus compelling inside looks at cutthroat technology, big-time sports and Machiavellian Hollywood deals.When good things come in threes, events infused with drama sometimes follow. This becomes uncovered truth as we trace the interwoven careers of three men in jeopardy and the remarkable women in their lives: film researcher Billie Travis, software designer Gia Dillon, and music composer Dakota Simms whose meeting with her ex-husband induces a horrific, near-death incident with long-term consequences. Billie Travis and Gia Dillon were inseparable childhood friends, and their chance reunion following an eleven-year separation has far-reaching aftereffects. These are launched when Billie hears Gia's story about the twin predicaments of her fiancé, Sam Clevenger, 22, and his father, Rob, 45. Both men face extreme danger plus potentially devastating career crises, one in professional baseball the other in technology; and their stories become the crux of the matter. We also meet Gia's aunt and uncle, literary, film and financial agents, who step outside their specialties to help the Clevenger men in their quests for redemption. Rob and Sam's struggles are integral to the concluding chapters where Billie Travis returns and partners with a Hollywood director to drive the action. Dakota Simms and her talented ex-husband reenter the story with material impact. And a gifted writer, who has recently suffered a grievous loss, is introduced and becomes key. In addition to a cliff-side funeral with danger and a torrid, roomless hotel tryst, we also encounter a blatant oil baron and his dysfunctional family; a financial tycoon and his sons wreaking physical mayhem; an NFL star and his brilliant fiancée with a tragic past; a thug and his gang of miscreants bent on revenge; an LAPD detective and a lovely redhead; a repugnant Major League owner; a corrupt and murderous businessman allied with the mafia; an insightful film star and his actor son; multiple love affairs; and . . . well, now it's time for women and men to kick back and have fun reading Larceny of Love.

The two women, thinking no one is watching, take it—and set off a wave of events and consequences that they could never have imagined.

After they are saved by their handsome captain, Tom— who also happens to be a rogue DEA agent—he takes them to hide out in his secluded cabin. But when a drug cartel informant becomes a crocodile’s lunch and Jordan’s cat is murdered back home, their sleuthing group suddenly grows as an Indian medicine man and a couple of senior citizens join up to help them battle the drug runners. Amid gun battles, jail breaks, and chicken attacks, love blooms. In this zany adventure, only time will tell if this strange group can triumph.

"The best writer in a baseball uniform." —Tyler Kepner, The New York Times After nearly a decade in the minors, Dirk Hayhurst defied the odds to climb onto the pitcher's mound for the Toronto Blue Jays. Newly married, with a big league paycheck and a brand new house, Hayhurst was ready for a great season in the Bigs. Then fate delivered a crushing hit. Hayhurst blew out his pitching shoulder in an insane off-season workout program. After surgery, rehab, and more rehab, his major-league dreams seemed more distant than ever. From there things got worse, weirder, and funnier. In a crazy world of injured athletes, autograph-seeking nuns, angry wrestlers, and trainers with a taste for torture, Hayhurst learned lessons about the game—and himself—that were not in any rulebook. Honest, soul?searching, insightful, hilarious, and moving, Dirk Hayhurst's latest memoir is an indisputable baseball classic. Praise for The Bullpen Gospels and Out of My League "Dirk Hayhurst writes about baseball in a unique way. Observant, insightful, human, and hilarious." —Bob Costas "A fun read. . .This book shows why baseball is so often used as a metaphor for life." —Keith Olbermann "Entertaining and engaging. . .reminiscent of Jim Bouton's Ball Four." —Booklist "A rare gem of a baseball book." —Tom Verducci, Sports Illustrated "A humorous, candid, and insightful memoir of Hayhurst's rookie season in the majors. . .Grade: Home Run." —Cleveland Plain Dealer

Spencer was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of six. Tracey and Steve did what most parents try to do: provide a fun and stimulating environment for their kids to grow in and reach their full potential. Foster did what brothers do: he offered up his bone marrow and rode shotgun in the all-terrain electric assault vehicle. Scupper did what sinister Portuguese Water Dogs do: he tried to eat the house one piece of furniture at a time and displace the "owner" from his spot in the bed. And Spencer? Spencer played soccer, sailed boats, built windmills, skipped a lot of school and developed a serious teenage drug habit. Along the way, Steve wrote this deeply personal, hilarious, and utterly moving collection of stories. They spilled out of his brain and onto the keyboard as there is not enough room for happy optimism and utter terror to coexist. I'll Shave my Head Too is an incredible balance between readability, humour, and emotional impact.

“A roaring good read.”—FORBES.com Master sniper Bob Lee Swagger returns in this riveting novel by bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter. The Great Depression was marked by an epidemic of bank robberies and Tommy-gun-toting outlaws who became household names. Hunting them down was the new U.S. Division of Investigation--soon to become the FBI--which was determined to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced: Baby Face Nelson. To stop him, the Bureau recruited talented gunman Charles Swagger, World War I hero and sheriff of Polk County, Arkansas. Eighty years later, Charles's grandson Bob Lee Swagger uncovers a strongbox containing an array of memorabilia dating back to 1934--a federal lawman's badge, a .45 automatic preserved in cosmoline, a mysterious gun part, and a cryptic diagram--all belonging to Charles Swagger. Bob becomes determined to find out what happened to his grandfather-- and why his own father never spoke of Charles. But as he investigates, Bob learns that someone is following him--and shares his obsession. Told in alternating timeframes, G-Man is a thrilling addition to Stephen Hunter's bestselling Bob Lee Swagger series.
