From 2004 to 2011, Terry Francona managed the Boston Red Sox, perhaps the most scrutinized team in all of sports. During that time, every home game was a sellout. Every play, call, word, gesture — on the field and off — was analyzed by thousands. And every decision was either genius or disastrous. In those eight years, the Red Sox transformed from a cursed franchise to one of the most successful and profitable in baseball history — only to fall back to last place as soon as Francona was gone. Now, in Francona: The Red Sox Years, the decorated manager opens up for the first time about his tenure in Boston, unspooling the narrative of how this world-class organization reached such incredible highs and dipped to equally incredible lows. Through it all, there was always baseball, that beautiful game of which Francona never lost sight.
The Sound of Broken Glass
#9 on The New York Times hardcover fiction best sellers list (3.10.13)
When Detective Inspector James joins forces with Detective Inspector Melody Talbot to solve the murder of an esteemed barrister, their investigation leads them to realize that nothing is what it seems — with the crime they're investigating and their own lives.
With an abundance of twists and turns and intertwining subplots, The Sound of Broken Glass by The New York Times bestselling author Deborah Crombie is an elaborate and engaging page-turner.
