“You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven’t read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen. Aglow with local color, packed with flint-dry wit, as fresh and clean as Mediterranean seafood — altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano.” A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Inspector Salvatore Montalbano wakes from strange dreams to find a gruesomely bludgeoned horse carcass in front of his seaside home. When his men came to investigate, the carcass has disappeared, leaving only a trail in the sand. Then his home is ransacked and the inspector is certain that the crimes are linked. As he negotiates both the glittering underworld of horseracing and the Mafia's connection to it, Montalbano is aided by his illiterate housekeeper, Adelina, and a Proustian memory of linguate fritte. Longtime fans and new readers alike will be charmed by Montalbano's blend of unorthodox methods, melancholy self-reflection, and love of good food.

Tracks in the Sand is a collection of essays that maps the contours of a layered life. Outdoorsman and cattle farmer H. Turney McKnight writes about the natural world with the grace of a poet and the ease of a seasoned storyteller. From rivers in the Russian Arctic and Chesapeake Bay to the mountains of Idaho, McKnight leads readers across the varied landscape of his experiences. In language sometimes as rippled and salty as the mid-Atlantic coastal marshes he writes about, McKnight punctuates his prose with equal parts humor and wit, reverence and humility. He recounts adventures (and misadventures) on high mountain slopes and sea-level streams, fond memories of polo and pond hockey, the perennial delight of the calving season on his Harford County farm, and a culinary misstep with a snapping turtle. Whether toting rod, gun, or binoculars, McKnight's experiences have been shaped by ceaseless wonderment of the natural world, the study of which comes through in his writing. Written in the tradition of Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It, the resulting collection memorializes the author's bottomless gratitude for the people, animals, and places woven into its pages.

"Geoffrey Wagner has written something a bit more substantial here than the standard war novel. "The Sands of Valor" spends as much if not more time and effort on the characters and their inner lives than he does on his excellent descriptions of tank warfare in the North African desert, pitting the British 8th Army and the German Afrika Korps against each other and both against the desert. This is not a quick read nor is it packed from end to end with action and scenes of combat, which actually helps the work deliver a rather realistic presentation of the long periods of time with no combat punctuated by moments of intense action and even sheer terror that was especially linked to this period of the war."--Amazon
