Stefan Fatsis' tale of trial by fire in the modern NFL is a must read for anyone wants to know what Mike Shanahan can do for this year's Washington Redskins. Fatsis exhibits his soft touch and hard kick as he spends the offseason as the oldest rookie on the Denver Broncos. His story gives hope to the dormant athlete in all of us and silences our internal Monday Morning Quarterback (if only until Tuesday).

Judging a book by its cover can be dangerous business, but The Manual of Detection is a serendipitous instance where image and product are equally remarkable. When Charles Unwin is promoted from Clerk to Detective, we, the readers, are whisked along on the handlebars of his bicycle with little explanation and only the standard issue Manual of Detection as a guide. From the first line, we are enveloped in a world where details may be clues, clues may be red herrings, and red herrings may be the most important of all. This book is a fantastically imagined dream to be read over and over again. So come along for the ride.
