Find a Way: One Wild and Precious Life
On September 2, 2013, 64-year-old marathon swimmer Diana Nyad completed a 110-mile, 53-hour, record-breaking swim through jellyfish-and-shark-infested waters from Cuba to Key West, Florida, on her fifth attempt. Why at age 64 was she able to achieve what she could not at 30? How did her repeated failures contribute to her success? In her memoir, she reveals the sexual abuse she suffered as a child, why she ended her career to become a sports broadcaster and journalist, and why she suited up once again. “Whatever your personal Other Shore is,” she writes, “whatever you must do ...you will find a way.”

In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff Hinkley is approached by a multi-time champion jockey to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does he know that the call will set off a lethal chain of events, including the apparent suicide of the jockey and an attempt on Hinkley's own life. Never one to leave suspicious events alone, Hinkley begins investigating the jockey and the races he may have thrown. But there are others out there who intend to prevent his inquiry from probing further...at any cost. Francis (Dick Francis's Damage, 2014) follows in his father's footsteps with this rousing and imaginative mystery.
He saw his father executed in battle and spent his youth avenging that death. Now Henry "Hal" Courtney is a man with a ship--and family--of his own. But fate has not finished with Hal. On a voyage along the eastern shore of Africa, a powerful enemy abducts his wife, the fearless warrior Judith...and with her, Hal's unborn child. For Hal, a man all too familiar with loss, there is only one way forward: He must track his nemesis across desert and ocean in pursuit of the woman he loves, and the glorious destiny that awaits him. Bursting with action and suspense, this unforgettable novel proves once more that Wilbur Smith (Desert God, 2014) is one of the world's great adventure writers.
