              Linda is not a woman who shies away from a challenge?the only female swordfish boat captain in the country and a survivor of the real Perfect Storm, she is also a New York Times bestselling author. Through hard work and determination, she had created the peaceful, independent lif...e she craved, living on a rugged island off the coast of Maine. It was all finally coming together? Then came Mariah. A troubled fifteen-year-old, Mariah arrives on Isle au Haut to stay with her uncle, a newcomer himself and seemingly a normal guy. The entire community is rocked to its core, however, when they discover that Mariah is suffering terrible abuse?at his hands. And they do what a small island community does best, coming together to take Mariah in as one of their own, protecting her from further harm. But Mariah needs a stable home and a legal guardian. The island nominates Linda. While Mariah is a typical teenager in many ways, she has also been uniquely damaged by this horrific experience, and Linda struggles to help her overcome the trauma, to heal, and to begin a new life. Linda will do battle with the gale-force winds of life with a teenager, help Mariah navigate a tremendously complex legal system to bring her abuser to justice, and learn what it means to be a mother?to a girl for whom it really matters. Both Linda and Mariah will struggle to come to terms with their ferocious and stubborn independence (like mother, like daughter?accidental or not) as they learn to trust each other and forge a new relationship that they both reluctantly realize they need. Linda Greenlaw's fans will be delighted by her trademark candor and down-to-earth style of storytelling, and will see a side of Greenlaw that she's not revealed before. New listeners, and any parent of a teenaged daughter, will find much to empathize with in this brave and heartfelt new memoir.

              America's only female swordfish boat captain returns with this long- awaited follow-up to the bestselling The Hungry Ocean. After the exploits recounted in The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean that made her a sensation, Linda Greenlaw took a ten- year hiatus from blue-water fis...hing. When an old friend offered her a captaincy on his swordboat, Greenlaw ditched her mounting bills and headed for the sea. Full of adventure and thought-provoking reflection, Seaworthy recounts her return to the beautiful and deadly Grand Banks -from the nuances of reading weather and the complexities of longline fishing to the surprise of landing in jail for crossing into Canadian waters. The result is both a wild ride and a memorable look at one woman's struggle to define her own limits.

              Green Haven, Maine, is as far from the heat and violence of her past as Jane Bunker could hope for. When she trades in her career as a big-city homicide detective for a new job as a marine insurance investigator, Jane thinks that a fresh start in this sleepy seaside town will fin...ally allow her the peace and quiet that she s been craving. But when the town drunk washes up on shore - with the back of his head smashed in - Jane realizes that Green Haven is not the quaint sanctuary she d thought it was. The townspeople don t think the tragedy is anything more than a drunk s long walk off a short pier, but once Jane discovers the sordid details of the dead man s past, it occurs to her that this just might be one local problem she knows a lot about, from her former life in Miami. And down there they call it murder. Unable to resist the lure of one last investigation, Jane makes it her business to find some answers. Though normally a woman of few words, Jane manages to talk herself into every corner of Green Haven, and in a small town like this, it isn t long before the wrong person finds out that she s been asking the right questions. In Green Haven, all answers lead to the ocean - and when Jane finds herself at sea, in the ferocious grip of an almost perfect storm, she has the chilling realization that her life may well be in the hands of the very murderer whom she s been seeking. Filled with an off-the-wall cast of eccentric characters headed by the unstoppable (and relentlessly thrifty) Jane Bunker herself, Slipknot is a riveting fiction debut made truly outstanding by Greenlaw s inimitable voice, unerring ear for all things maritime, and talent for combining humor with edge-of-your-seat suspense.
