Surprisingly, one of sport’s most contentious, complex, and defining clashes played out not in the boxing ring or at the line of scrimmage but on the genteel green fairways of the world’s finest golf courses. Arnie and Jack. Palmer and Nicklaus. Their fifty-year duel, in both the clubhouse and the boardroom, propelled each to the status of American icon and pushed modern golf to the heights and popularity it enjoys today. Arnie was the cowboy, with rugged good looks, Popeye-like forearms, a flailing swing, and charm enough to win fans worldwide. Jack was scientific, precise, conservative, aloof, even fat and awkward. Ultimately, Nicklaus got the better of Palmer on the course, beating him in major victories 18-7. But Palmer bested Nicklaus almost everywhere else, especially in the hearts of the public and in endorsement dollars. By the end of this page-turning narrative, we see that each man wanted what the other had: Arnold wanted the trophies. Jack wanted the love. In the tradition of John Feinstein and Mark Frost, Ian O’Connor has written a compelling account of one of the greatest rivalries in sports history.

In this definitive biography, veteran sportswriter Tom Callahan shines a spotlight on one of the greatest golfers ever to play the game: Arnold Palmer. The winner of more than ninety championships, including four Masters Tournaments, Arnold Palmer was a legend of twentieth-century sport: a supremely gifted competitor beloved for his powerful hitting, his nerve on the greens, and his great rapport with fans. Perhaps above all else, Palmer was the reason golf's popularity exploded, as the king of the links helped define golf's golden age along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. In addition to his talent on the golf course, Palmer was a brilliant entrepreneur off it, and one of the first sportsmen to create his own successful marketing brand. Forging an alliance with sports agent Mark McCormack, Palmer converted his popularity into lucrative deals, and helped pave the way for the multi-million-dollar contracts that have become standard for stars across all sports. But beyond his business acumen, Palmer was always a larger-than-life character; filled with great stories from the key people in Palmer's life, Arnie is an entertaining and illuminating portrait of a remarkable man and his extraordinary legacy.

The Woman Who Ran Away is a mystery of sorts. Jack Waldek, the protagonist, is a senior tax manager with an obscure public accounting firm in New Jersey. He meets Fran Zetzmann when she occupies the next seat to him on an O’Hare to LaGuardia flight. Fran presumably holds a regional sales management position with an advertising representative firm and impresses Jack as an independent traveling lady. They develop a relationship which blooms into a comfortable weekend lover arrangement at Jack’s country place in a Pocono Mountains gated community called Knight Estates. Fran is a runner. She runs every weekend morning a distance of 1.8 miles regardless of weather. She leaves one Saturday morning shortly after seven in the morning and does not return, Jack sets out to look for Fran, locates the rental car in the parking lot next to the running trail and her purse is in the back seat. There is no sign of Fran. A search of her purse produces an odd looking cell phone and a wallet without credit cards. He reports her absence the next day to the Knight Estates Public Safety Department and continues to search for Fran. Jack finds that the address on her business card is nothing more than a New York City mail drop, and that Fran’s company ceased to exist three years before. He continues to probe and suddenly becomes aware that Fran is not the first person to disappear from Knight Estates. Jack then learns that the woman he had known as Fran was an operative of a Middle East industrial intelligence firm called SHALIMAR. It appears that the woman called Fran was assigned to cultivate Jack to learn about his principal client, Gianni Companies. Jack Waldek, the charming tax manager, finds himself enmeshed in a web of threats, violence, imposters. loutish public safety officers, a corporate control fight, and professional assassins. Everything is linked to Fran, the woman who ran away. Dwight Foster’s previous books include the Shattered Covenants series, (Present & Past Imperfect, The Road to McKenzie Barber, The Consultant, The Chairman, The Partner, The House of Harwell, and Twilight & Endgame) and NEW YORK FOLKS. His writings have a strong business flavor nurtured during his lengthy executive search consulting career in addition to his current role as Chairman of Foster Partners Asia, a human capital consulting firm serving clients in China, Malaysia, and Viet Nam.

Terror – der Krieg im Geheimen Mit modernsten technischen Mitteln bedroht der Terrorismus die zivilisierte Welt – und nur Jack Ryan und John Clark könnten sie retten. Ihr Ziel ist der sadistische Killer, der sich »der Emir« nennt. Ihn gilt es zu stoppen – tot oder lebendig ... Mit »Dead or Alive« legt Tom Clancy den lang ersehnten Höhepunkt seiner Romanreihe vor, die mit »Jagd auf Roter Oktober« begann. Kaum ein Autor befindet sich so auf der Höhe der Zeit, wenn es um Polit- und Technothriller geht. Der »Krieg gegen den Terrorismus« ist weit von einem Sieg entfernt, doch scheint dieser Kampf für US-Präsident Kealty, den Nachfolger von Jack Ryan im Oval Office, keine Priorität zu besitzen. Der »Emir«, ein weltweit vernetzter Terrorist, der hinter den schändlichsten Terroranschlägen auf die westliche Welt steckt, konnte trotz vereinten internationalen Bemühungen bislang nicht dingfest gemacht werden. Und er plant weitere perfide Anschläge, die Amerika destabilisieren und das Grauen vom 11. September noch übertreffen sollen. Jetzt ist ihm der »Campus« , eine geheime Antiterroreinheit, auf der Spur. Im Verein mit den Neuzugängen John Clark und Ding Chavez erhält Jack Ryan jr. den Auftrag, den Emir herbeizuschaffen – tot oder lebendig ...
