Thirty years ago, Sergeant Samantha Jane Elliott had just found the love of her life when her team was attacked. Seven people, including Jay “Cowboy” Evans were ripped from her life in only moments. She’s dreamed of a time when she would see Cowboy again, holding on to the romantic notion of heaven and a happily ever after. As Sam lies dying, the last thing she sees is Cowboy, looking just as he did the night of the attack. But when she awakes, Sam discovers there is no white light or angel wings - there are vampires in uniform and horrifying visions of Cowboy being ripped out of her life again.

The Last Punisher is a bold, no-holds-barred first-person account of the Iraq War. With wry humor and moving testimony, Kevin Lacz tells the story of his tour in Iraq with SEAL Team Three, the warrior elite of the navy. This legendary unit, known as The Punishers, included Chris Kyle ( American Sniper), Mike Monsoor, Ryan Job, and Marc Lee. These brave men were instrumental in securing the key locations in the pivotal 2006 Battle of Ramadi, told with stunning detail in this book.

Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America's manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA's Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race.

Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence.

Many astonishing and affecting things happen at the racetrack, and the mysterious universe of horse racing, passionate, cold-hearted, pure, corrupt, is woven into a marvelous tapestry of joy and love, chicanery, folly, greed, and reckless courage. Spanning two years on the circuit, from Kentucky and California to New York and Paris, Horse Heaven, puts us among trainers, nervey jockeys, billionaire breeders, and restless track wives.

Seabiscuit

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made you laugh and cry. I own and love horses and it captured the feelings I have everyday.
