E-BOOK EXCERPT

"A brave and marvelous book. A page-turner that will rip your heart out."--Jon Krakauer In the tradition of Into the Wild comes an instant classic of outdoor literature, a riveting work of uncommon depth. The Adventurer's Son is Roman Dial's extraordinary account of his two-year quest to unravel the mystery of his son's fate. In the predawn hours of July 10, 2014, the twenty-seven-year-old son of preeminent Alaskan scientist and National Geographic Explorer Roman Dial, walked alone into Corcovado National Park, an untracked rainforest along Costa Rica's remote Pacific Coast that shelters miners, poachers, and drug smugglers. He carried a light backpack and machete. Before he left, Cody Roman Dial emailed his father: "I am not sure how long it will take me, but I'm planning on doing 4 days in the jungle and a day to walk out. I'll be bounded by a trail to the west and the coast everywhere else, so it should be difficult to get lost forever." They were the last words Dial received from his son. As soon as he realized Cody Roman's return date had passed, Dial set off for Costa Rica. As he trekked through the dense jungle, interviewing locals and searching for clues--the authorities suspected murder--the desperate father was forced to confront the deepest questions about himself and his own role in the events. Roman had raised his son to be fearless, to be at home in earth's wildest places, travelling together through rugged Alaska to remote Borneo and Bhutan. Was he responsible for his son's fate? Or, as he hoped, was Cody Roman safe and using his wilderness skills on a solo adventure from which he would emerge at any moment? Part detective story set in the most beautiful yet dangerous reaches of the planet, The Adventurer's Son emerges as a far deeper tale of discovery--a journey to understand the truth about those we love the most. The Adventurer's Son includes 25 color photographs.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the beloved Cynster novels, brings you THE ADVENTURERS QUARTET, a riveting blend of Regency-era high seas adventure, a mystery shrouded in the heat of tropical jungles, and the passionate romances of four couples and their unexpected journeys into love. Now together in one complete collection! The Lady’s Command Declan Frobisher, scion of a seafaring dynasty, is accustomed to getting his way. But his new bride, Lady Edwina Delbraith is unconventional and has a spine of steel. Bare weeks into their honeymoon, Declan is recruited to sail on a secret mission, and Edwina—naturally—declares she must accompany him. Facing unforeseen perils and unexpected enemies while battling to expose a dastardly scheme, Declan and Edwina discover that their tempestuous marriage demands something they both possess—bold and adventurous hearts. A Buccaneer at Heart When an urgent summons from the Crown arrives, Captain Robert Frobisher agrees to set sail for Freetown immediately. His covert mission is to locate a slavers’ camp and return to London with the information. Miss Aileen Hopkins is determined to find her brother, a naval lieutenant who has mysteriously disappeared, and she will not allow anyone to turn her from this dangerous path. Joining forces with Aileen, Robert vows to complete his task and secure the woman he wants as his wife. Compelled to protect the innocent and bring retribution to a heartless enemy, they plunge into the jungle with only each other to rely on, and the courage of their hearts as their guide. The Daredevil Snared Captain Caleb Frobisher, hedonistic youngest son of a seafaring dynasty, has something to prove. So he seizes the next leg of the covert mission his brothers are pursuing, and stays on to accomplish its ultimate goal. Katherine Fortescue fled a life of poverty and came to Freetown as a governess, only to be kidnapped and forced to oversee the child workforce at a mine. Guarded by mercenaries, the captives have lost all hope. Then Katherine meets Caleb—and he brings the sweet promise of rescue. Through the clashes that follow, he becomes the leader he was destined to be, and the sort of man Katherine can trust—with her body, with her life. With her love. Lord of the Privateers Royd Frobisher is set to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to bring Isobel Carmichael, his childhood sweetheart, with him. Isobel has her own mission: to find and bring a young cousin safely home. Following a full-scale rescue-assault on the slavers’ compound deep in the jungle, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. To identify and convict the conspirators behind the illicit enterprise—and save England from political disaster—they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton and hunt the villains on their home ground. But having found each other again, how much are Royd and Isobel willing to risk in the name of duty?
