Go Long!: My Journey Beyond the Game and the FameGo Long!: My Journey Beyond the Game and the Fame by Jerry Rice and Brian Curtis (Authors) (Hardcover - Jan 16, 2007) It’s been a long journey for Jerry Rice, from his childhood in Starkville, Mississippi, to a certain berth in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As a kid, he was always working toward something, even if he wasn’t sure what it was. Rice honed his hand-eye coordination by catching airborne bricks tossed by his siblings while on the job with their bricklayer father, and he ran–everywhere. From these humble beginnings, Rice blazed a path to greatness in college and the NFL–a trip that was fueled by tireless effort and belief in a few simple principles, among them that achievement is a voyage, not a destination; that modesty and perseverance, not talent, are what determine how far you will go; and that everyone should strive to be a role model. Rice even demonstrates these rules in action, breaking down the greatest games from his stellar career.

Crossroad Blues: A Nick Travers Mystery by Ace Atkins ~ Florida journalist and former college football player Ace Atkins takes full advantage of the legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnson's life, music, and strange death in his first mystery. And even though it bears the weight of two of the genre's most overused icons--a New Orleans setting and an ex-sports star as hero--Crossroad Blues is fresh and imaginative enough in all its other aspects to inspire hope for an ongoing series. ~ Similiar books: Mystery & Thrillers > Mystery > General

Dangerous Dilemmas by Evelyn Palfrey (Paperback - June 2001) Audrey Roberts's life is certifiably awful. Her son, Malcolm, is being held in a Houston jail on murder charges, and she learns that her husband of 25 years is having an affair with a man. Things must get worse before they get better: on a visit to her son, Audrey's rental car gets a flat tire, and she's rescued by a tall, dark and handsome stranger named Kirk Maxwell. All seems heavenly ("Audrey looked up into his black eyes and felt herself drowning in his tenderness") until she learns that Maxwell is Malcolm's arresting officer. She now must decide what's more important helping her son win his case or having a heated love affair with Malcolm's legal arch enemy. More Evelyn Palfrey
