Skating on Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

In 1921, when he was 11 years old, Anatol Rapoport attempted to ice skate out of Russia to freedom in Poland. Caught by border guards and turned back, he decided to try again with the help of professional Army smugglers. This bittersweet story of emigration, by the famed psychologist and mathematician known for his work in game theory, is set against the background of the Russian revolution and civil war. Poignant accounts of life in the Ukraine and Crimea, stories of Red and White Army soldiers bivouacking in his home, and a 200-mile train ride that takes 13 days in the comfort of a boxcar make this Canadian/American author's story unforgettable.

On Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

Polar bears—fierce and majestic—have captivated us for centuries. Feared by explorers, revered by the Inuit, and beloved by zoo goers everywhere, they are a symbol for the harsh beauty and muscular grace of the Arctic. But as global warming threatens the ice caps’ integrity, the polar bear has also come to symbolize the environmental peril that has arisen due to harmful human practices. In the past twenty years alone, the world population of polar bears has shrunk by half. Today they number just 22,000. Urgent and stirring, On Thin Ice is both a celebration and a rallying cry on behalf of one of earth’s greatest natural treasures.

Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

With a left leg shattered by a drug dealer's bullet, former Detroit homicide captain Ed McAvoy accepts a job as Police Chief of Peekamoose Heights, in New York's Catskills. He figures it will be semi-retirement, sort of like running a country club. After all, how much crime can there be? McAvoy soon discovers that his homicide skills will not atrophy from lack of use. Murder, as it turns out, is an equal-opportunity crime that not only resides in large bustling cities like Detroit, but in sleepy, little Catskill villages as well. In the sixth Ed McAvoy Mystery, the festive atmosphere of the annual Winter Carnival is shattered by an act of vandalism on a food truck during the first night of the week-long fair and accusations run rampant among rival vendors. But when the two-time National Champion is attacked and injured at the National Figure Skating pre-trials and one of the mobile chefs is found shot to death, McAvoy must get to the bottom of things quickly before the food-fight turns even deadlier.

Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

Everyone's favorite Grandma with a Glock is back for more mystery, murder, and killer recipes! It’s a new year, and Lottie King is back to old habits: catching killers. She’s opened a shiny new detective agency and reluctantly partners with rival private investigator and greenhorn Oliver T. Figg. But as they hunt down murder suspects, they’re ready to kill…each other. Features five mysteries and Lottie-inspired recipes. Thin Ice — A chilling murder at an exclusive prep school draws Lottie and Figg into the world of the rich and reckless, but their joint investigation turns frosty when Lottie discovers her new partner has ties to the main suspects. Sweet Success — Lottie struggles to get her new P.I. business off the ground, while Figg lands the biggest case of his career—the death investigation of a famous romance author murdered at a chocolate festival. They’re doomed to fail…unless they turn to each other for help. Welcome Interruption — An unexpected visitor drops in and asks for Lottie’s help in catching a different kind of killer. Double Dare — The gloves are off, and Lottie and Figg square off to solve the murder of a man who advertised his homicide in the classifieds. Bragging rights and reputations are on the line…not to mention lives. Fat Chance — When a successful businessman turns up dead at a posh weight loss facility, Lottie and Figg go undercover to investigate a murder that will change their lives. The complete Detective Lottie King Mysteries Series: Rough Day (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 1) New Shoes (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 2) Thin Ice (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 3) Tangled Truths (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 4) Broken Heart (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 5) Dark Secret (Detective Lottie King Mysteries, Vol. 6) Books in this series are standalones and can be read in any order but are best enjoyed in sequence. Author's Note: In every book I've written, at least one minor character jumps off the page and threatens to steal the show. This is what happened with Colorado Springs Homicide Detective Lottie King in my first Apostles thriller, THE BROKEN. Well, it happened again. Oliver T. Figg, the upstart private investigator Lottie met in NEW SHOES, will not shut up. I never thought Lottie, my Grandma with a Glock, would have a partner, especially a young gun without too many street smarts and no clue about police procedures. But Lottie and Figg are turning out to be quite the crime fighting duo. This mystery series is perfect for readers who like clever crime fiction with a strong female protagonist, a dash of humor, and a lot of heart. Bonus: each short story comes with a Lottie-approved recipe. Enjoy!

On Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

On Thin Ice is Mick Fowler's second set of climbing memoirs, following Vertical Pleasure. Here, the celebrated mountaineer records his expeditions since 1990. Despite work and family commitments, he has maintained a regular series of 'big trips' to challenging objectives around the world with a sequence of major successes: Taweche (1995, with Pat Littlejohn), Changabang (1997, with Steve Sustad, Andy Cave and Brendan Murphy), Arwa Tower (1999, with Sustad), Mount Kennedy (2000, with Cave), Siguniang (2002, with Paul Ramsden). Siguniang's hard ice climbing on a fabulous face in deepest China was so admired by the international climbing community that it won the US 'Golden Piton' and the French 'Piolet d'Or', both awards given for the finest alpine achievements in the world during that year. The author describes his travels in the great traditions, with engaging modesty and wit, but the climbs themselves are frequently so dramatic that the anxiety and tension forces its way to the surface to be matched by a corresponding relief and triumph when success and safe descent is achieved. Mick Fowler has thus become Britain's most successful exponent of high-standard lightweight mountaineering in the greater ranges. At 48 he is already something of an elder statesman of a cadre of international activists. They are steadily ticking off the most challenging lines in the world - a 'golden age' of super-alpinism that is now in full swing. How this influences activities on the 8000m peaks where the dangers (rarefied air, weather severity and sheer scale) are greater is an open question. History suggests that as major challenges on the lower peaks are steadily mastered the focus will return to technical challenges offered at the higher altitudes. Whether the results will exceed achievements such as the Kurtyka/Schauer (Gasherbrum 4) and the Bohigas/Lucas (Annapurna 1) remains to be seen. The combination of exotic travel with major climbs provides the ultimate adrenalin-soaked holiday experience that Mick Fowler has mastered to the full. We are transported from the cliffs of Jordan, to remote peaks in deepest Asia, via Taweche and Changabang in the Himalaya, with jaunts to the Andes and Alaska thrown in for good measure. That Fowler has organised this routine for years, while holding down a conventional nine-to-five job with the Inland Revenue, has constantly amazed his peers. In this, his second book, he has also mastered the skills of amusing travel-writing to entertain us as a preliminary to the finale of a titanic struggle on each of his fiendishly demanding climbs.

On Thin Ice explores the shifting relationship between the Inuit and the modern state in the North American Arctic, and it pays tribute to pioneering IR theorist Ken Waltz's elucidation of the "Three Images," with the addition of a new "Fourth Image" to describe a tribal level of analysis that remains salient in not only the Arctic, but in other conflict zones where tribal peoples retain many attributes of their indigenous sovereignty.

The Trouble with Thin Ice Book Excerpt:

Simona and her detective boyfriend are spending Christmas in a cozy Connecticut inn to attend an interracial wedding. It's Simona's first vacation with Greenhouse and her nervousness isn't helped by the presence of Greenhouse's wary teenage son, Willy. Out for some needed cold air, Simona discovers a body under the thin ice of the nearby lake. The dead woman, whose husband had disappeared years earlier, turns out to have had mysterious ties to Kesho, the African American bride-to-be. Greenhouse is in Florida with his ailing mother, leaving Simona in charge of Willy, when Kesho is arrested for the murder. Convinced of her new friend's innocence and with Willy as her Watson, Simona delves into the town's secrets and lies to uncover the truth. Another murder gives Simona a much-needed clue, but her zeal for the truth puts Willy and her in danger. Thanks to Simona's gutsiness and Willy's fast thinking, the murderer gets his due, Kesho walks down the aisle and Greenhouse asks a question. A recipe for Comfort Pasta is included. "Simona exercises her adorable ways with a vengeance but it is her keen intelligence, not her bubbly personality, that wins." -Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "Rich in atmosphere and buoyed by wry wit, Crespi's briskly paced narrative calls for an encore." -Publishers Weekly starred review "Crespi turns out a nicely complicated story that includes both unexpected twists and credible interpersonal tensions Simona's voice is personable. She deals deftly with racism and, more generally, with stereotyping, whether it is used to pigeonhole blacks, Italians, or New Yorkers." -Wilson Library Journal "The Trouble With Thin Ice is the best Simona Griffo yet, a fast-paced puzzle with the trademark recipe included." -M.E.
