With looming debt, he agrees to take on a job for $2 million for a 10 day fishing tournament to Cuba which he suspects has more involved than an outing that could include anti-Castro groups.

He learns that his charter involves obtaining $60 million in Cuba. His client's grandfather stashed the money in Cuba prior to fleeing from Castro's revolution. With the "Cuban Thaw" taking place between Havana and Washington, they are now in a race to find the money before someone else does. Mac will either be rich or not at all.

AND BREATHE
Hachette
Rebecca Dennis

Can you breathe your way to health and happiness? In And Breathe, Rebecca 

Dennis, a London based breath coach and workshop leader who was trained by Judith Kravitz (Transformational Breath) has written a guide on deep breathing for health and happiness.

The average person inhales and exhales about 20,000 times a day; however, most of those breaths are short and shallow and are known as "stress breaths" because they just reach the chest. This kind of breath creates a constant "fight or flight" response in the body and according to the World Health Organization, they believe that by 2020 depression and anxiety will be the number one disability worldwide.

Throughout the book, there are exercises that are described to guide you through deep diaphragmatic, conscious breathing. These are tools you can use throughout your day and can be done anywhere whenever you need. In addition Rebecca reminds us that breathing is natural and we must retrain our mind to this way of being.

SLEEPING BEAUTIES
Simon and Schuster
Stephen King + Owen King

We're definitely intrigued about Sleeping Beauties which is written by master horror/thriller writer Stephen King and his son, Owen King. They push the envelope with a simple question, what would happen if women were to disappear from the world of men?

Everything starts when women go to sleep, they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If you attempt to awaken them or if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. But when they stay asleep, they go to another place of peace where conflict rarely takes place and harmony reigns.

Only one woman, Eve Black is immune to this sleeping condition. This causes the all male community to wonder what they should do about her as they move towards violence. All of this takes place in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison.
