Parasailing is a recreational activity where a person (two, three and more people may also ride at the same time) is towed behind a boat while attached to a parachute. A harness attaches to the parasail, which is connected to the boat. The boat then drives off, carrying the passenger into the air. The passenger has no control over the parachute. The activity is primarily a fun ride.Parasailing is alive and well and once you experience the exhilaration, you might just get hooked!The view:There’s nothing else like it. A literal bird’s eye view, without the buzz of an airplane deafening you. You can see from the vantage point for Dubai’s skyline and landmarks such as The Palm Island, Jumeirah Beach Residence, The Walk, Sheik's Island, Burj Al Arab to the horizon as you float along behind the boat, peaceful and calm, entirely at ease. You get to experience the world from high above, seeing a bigger scale than many people manage in their lifetime. There’s nothing else like it.

The dramatic new novel in the Philadelphia police saga by the number-one New York Times best-selling author. For Philadelphia homicide detective Matt Payne, investigating a young woman’s murder in a Society Hill home invasion uncovers an ugly underworld - that of Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob. Foreign girls are being smuggled in to work in the sex trade, and now some of them are dying or just disappearing. The trail leads right to Philadelphia - and Payne learns that’s not all. Teenage American girls lured from local foster homes have vanished. And the lone living witness has gone into hiding. He knows it’s got to be connected - but how? And it doesn’t help that his gut says it somehow involves that high-rolling politician last seen near the Caribbean in a casino’s airplane. For Payne, finding that last witness is absolutely critical - before the Russians, the cartels, or anyone else gets to her first. Filled with authentic color and detail, this is a riveting novel of the men and women who put their lives on the line, from the cop on the beat to the commissioner himself. It’s a story of fears and dangers, courage and loyalty, genuine heroism and love - storytelling at its absolute best. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.
