Jej genialna zdolność rekonstrukcji twarzy dawno zmarłych osób jedynie na podstawie kształtu czaszki przynosi ukojenie rodzicom zaginionych dzieci. Dla Eve, której córka została porwana i zamordowana, a jej ciała nigdy nie odnaleziono, jest to sposób na pogodzenie się z własnym koszmarnym losem. Pewnego dnia milioner John Logan proponuje Eve, aby zrekonstruowała twarz dorosłej ofiary morderstwa. Eve zgadza siętylko dlatego, że Logan ofiaruje ogromną sumę pieniędzy na cel dobroczynny.

Jeden z napastników zatrzymał się przy wejściu. Drugi szybko przeszedł, a właściwie przebiegł przez salę i stanął w drzwiach skarbca. Trzebi brodacz wybrał miejsce na środku sali. Podniósł pistolet i dwukrotnie strzelił w sufit.

– Wszyscy wstać! Ręce do góry!- zakomenderował.

Wybuchła panika. Jedna z urzędniczek zaczęła krzyczeć. Napastnik skierował lufę swej broni w jej kierunku.

– Cisza! Bo strzelam – powiedział dobitnie.

обложка книги Wall Street Noir Wall Street Noir

Brand-new stories by: John Burdett, Henry Blodget, Peter Blauner, Jason Starr, Megan Abbott, Reed Farrel Coleman, Stephen Rhodes, Twist Phelan, Tim Broderick, Jim Fusilli, David Noonan, Richard Aleas, Lawrence Light, James Hime, Mark Haskell Smith, Peter Spiegelman, and Lauren Sanders.

From a distance — on television, say, or in the pages of the business section — it looks like such a clean, well-lighted place, a place where decisions to buy or sell are guided by formulas and subtle strategy, and thorough, dispassionate consideration of all available facts. A place where cool reason prevails. And sure, that’s one version of Wall Street — call it the CNBC edition. But this book is about another place, just beneath that shiny surface — a place where fear and greed have always held sway. Think WorldCom or Tyco; think Enron. Think Gordon Gekko.

Wall Street Noir illuminates a place whose boundaries have spread well beyond Trinity Church and the East River. In today’s relentlessly global economy, Wall Street is everywhere: a borderless, virtual city encompassing Midtown Manhattan, Main Street, U.S.A., the maquilas of Honduras, the office towers of Shanghai, and the brothels of Bangkok. It’s a shadowy metropolis, as the stories in this exciting collection reveal, and one that’s far more Jim Thompson than Warren Buffet.

Spiegelman Peter, Fusilli Jim, Starr Jason, Burdett John, Coleman Reed Farrel, Aleas Richard, Abbott Megan, Broderick Tim, Blauner Peter, Blodget Henry, Hime James, Light Lawrence, Noonan David, Phelan Twist, Rhodes Stephen, Sanders Lauren, Smith Mark Haskell

Internationally acclaimed and bestselling crime writer Fred Vargas will be published for the first time in Canada in hardcover by Knopf Canada.

In this remarkable addition to the Commissaire Adamsberg series, has a serial killer followed Adamsberg to Canada on his training mission?

Between 1943 and 2003, nine people have been stabbed to death with a most unusual weapon: a trident. In each case, arrests were made, suspects confessed their crime and were sentenced to life. One slightly worrying detail: all the presumed murderers lost consciousness during the night of the crime and cannot remember whether they actually did it or not. Commissaire Adamsberg is convinced all the murders are the work of one person: the terrifying Judge Fulgence. Years before, Adamsberg's own brother had been the principal suspect in a similar case and avoided prison only thanks to Adamsberg's help. History now repeats itself when Adamsberg, who is temporarily based in Quebec for a training mission, is accused of having savagely murdered his young lover. In order to prove his innocence, Adamsberg must go on the run from the Canadian police and find Judge Fulgence. The heir to Maigret, Commissaire Adamsberg is back in a new investigation that will keep the reader spellbound until the very last word.

Он хорошо видел девушку сквозь стекла бинокля. Он лежал на крыше и улыбался, разглядывая ее. Красивая, в шелковом до щиколоток одеянии, она выглядела величественно, словно королева. Но больше всего поражали ее глаза. Чуть раскосые, ярко-зеленого, как изумруд, цвета. Девушка смотрела на вечерний город. Мужчина усмехнулся и достал мобильник. Он хотел увидеть выражение ее лица, когда она получит sms. В послании был лишь вопрос: «Так кто убил Че?» Он отложил бинокль и громко произнес: «Добро пожаловать в прошлое!..»

When a mysterious Englishman bursts into tears and claims not to know who he is or where hes come from, the evening ends in farce. The following day the Englishman is found hanging from a rafter in a boathouse on the jetty, a clowns mask on his face. Detective Jimmy Perez is convinced that this is a local murder. He is reinforced in this belief when Roddy, Bellas musician nephew is murdered too. But the detectives relationship with Fran Hunter clouds his judgement. And this is a crazy time of the year when night blurs into day and nothing is quite as it seems.

Every family has secrets, but the Fountains' are turning deadly…

On a dark night, along a lonely country road, barrister Frank Amberley stops to help a young lady in distress and discovers a sports car with a corpse behind the wheel. The girl protests her innocence, and Amberley believes her—at least until he gets drawn into the mystery and the clues incriminating Shirley Brown begin to add up…

In an English country-house murder mystery with a twist, it's the butler who's the victim, every clue complicates the puzzle, and the bumbling police are well-meaning but completely baffled. Fortunately, in ferreting out a desperate killer, amateur sleuth Amberley is as brilliant as he is arrogant, but this time he's not sure he wants to know the truth…

    Великий классик около века назад категорично заявил: "Никогда не разговаривайте с незнакомцами"! – и красочно описал, что из этого может выйти. Лиза Романова не послушала совета, и не только заговорила с мужчиной, подсевшим к ней за столик в кафе, но и стала сотрудничать. Она считала, выхода у нее нет: если откажется, потеряет все, что имеет. Но только девушка вступила в игру, как жизнь ее полетела под откос. Люди, окружающие ее, стали актерами, мир вокруг – декорациями. Лиза мечется в поисках правды, но та, порой, оказывается еще страшнее, чем домыслы. Страхи загоняют девушку в ловушку, и она понимает, что должна докопаться до истины, ибо на кон поставлено не что иное, как ее жизнь.
