Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

This book was a little slow to start but I quickly feel in love with the story. I got sucked in and couldn't wait to listen. I was even late to work once because I couldn't turn it off. highly recommend.

Derrick Storm, the guy the CIA calls on when it wants something investigated domestically, is 33,000 feet in the air, returning from a rock-climbing vacation in the Swiss Alps, when the plane spirals into a nosedive. Storm uses his climbing gear to tether himself to the wing and heroically save the plane and all the people onboard. Sadly, Storm is not available to come to the aid of the three other planes that have crashed under similar circumstances, killing everyone onboard.

From Tokyo, to London, to Johannesburg, high-level bankers are being gruesomely tortured and murdered. The killer, caught in a fleeting glimpse on a surveillance camera, has been described as a psychopath with an eye patch. And that means Gregor Volkov, Derrick Storm's old nemesis, has returned. Desperate to figure out who Volkov is working for and why, the CIA calls on the one man who can match Volkov's strength and cunning - Derrick Storm.
