From Publishers Weekly

In this top-notch fourth novel in Burke's series featuring ex-Texas Ranger attorney Billy Bob Holland, Billy Bob has moved his family and practice to the pastoral city of Missoula, Mont., the setting of his last adventure (Bitterroot, 2001), only to discover that the psychopathic ex-biker/rodeo clown, Wyatt Dixon (who buried Billy Bob's private investigator wife, Temple, alive), is out of prison on a technicality and claiming to be a born-again Christian. Billy Bob befriends alcoholic Desert Storm hero Johnny American Horse, a sometime breeder of horses and eco-activist who-when not in the drunk tank-is carrying on a passionate affair with Amber Finley, the daughter of Romulus Finley, a vindictive and bigoted powerful U.S. senator. When Johnny is suspected of murdering the hit man who invaded his home as well as masterminding the burglary of Global Research (a high-tech agricultural lab), making off with its computer files, the action picks up quickly. Noted for quirky characters and intricate plots, Burke introduces demon-driven sheriff's deputy Darrel McComb-an ex-war hero and former mercenary pilot who flew cocaine for the contras-who has an erotic fixation on Amber. Factor in private security agency chief Greta Lundstrum, FBI agent Seth Masterson and Karsten Mabus, CEO of the company that owns Global Research, and the mayhem builds to a gripping, spine-tingling finale.

Schlimm genug, daß Amelia Peabody allein nach Ägypten reist, aber ihre neue Freundschaft zu der mittellosen und verrufenen Evelyn Barton-Forbes sprengt nun wirklich alte Konventionen der viktorianischen Etikette. Als die lebenslustige Evelyn, die eigentlich nur vor ihrer mißglückten Verlobung fliehen wollte, bald nicht nur von unzähligen Verehrern, sondern auch von einer erstaunlich lebendigen Mumie verfolgt wird, ist ihre unerschrockene Beschützerin und Hobbydetektivin Amelia gefordert ...


Eine friedliche Fahrt auf dem Nil muß sich die junge Amelia Peabody wohl aus dem Kopf schlagen: Erstens laufen ihr die durchaus nicht uninteressanten Emer-son-Brüder, ihres Zeichens Ägyptologen, über den Weg, und dann muß sie auch noch ihren verrufenen, mittellosen Schützling Evelyn Barton-Forbes retten -nicht nur vor allen möglichen Verehrern, sondern auch vor einer plötzlich sehr lebendigen Mumie ... Damit ist sie natürlich ganz in ihrem kriminalistischen Element, aber nebenher muß sie sich auch noch für andere verzwickte Fälle engagieren ...

обложка книги Imię róży Imię róży

Swego czasu wykazałam się ignorancją na miarę ludzi mediów, chciałam lepiej poznać literaturę włoską nie zauważywszy, że Umberto Eco do grona pisarzy włoskich należy. Co więcej, kiedyś jakieś podejście do Eco miałam jednak za młoda i zbyt niecierpliwa byłam a może i wybór padł na nieodpowiedni utwór, bo na "Zapiski na pudełku zapałek". Toteż teraz postanowiłam wykorzystać wyzwanie i nadrobić zaległości czytelnicze w kwestii literatury włoskiej.

Strasznie wahałam się nad napisaniem recenzji książki "Imię Róży" na swoim blogu, bo to rzekomo ciężka książka, kiepsko się czyta i na dodatek zawiera tyle filozofii, która nie pozwala się książką cieszyć tylko zanudza. Tymczasem odniosłam zupełnie inne wrażenie. To naprawdę świetna powieść, którą można czytać na wiele sposobów i wielu płaszczyznach – w zależności od tego w którą chcemy się wgłębiać na taki poziom trudności trafimy. Dzięki temu do książki można wracać i wielokrotnie odnajdywać nowe, ciekawe elementy wcześniej przez nas nie odkryte, albo nie zrozumiane. Zdarzyło mi się powracać do jakiejś strony lub dwóch, żeby przypomnieć sobie stanowisko któregoś z mnichów na dany temat.

Po pierwsze jest tu wątek kryminalny, w myśl hitchcockowskiej wizji fabuły idealnej na początku pojawia się trup a później jest tylko gorzej. W roku 1937 w opactwie benedyktynów we Włoszech ma miejsce tajemnicze morderstwo bądź samobójstwo. Wilhelm z Baskerville wraz z uczniem Adsem z Melk przyjeżdżają do klasztoru, by pomóc w rozwikłaniu zagadki morderstwa. Szybko okazuje się, że giną kolejni mnisi, wszyscy w tajemniczo powiązani z biblioteką. Wilhelm jako były inkwizytor ma wyostrzony zmysł obserwacji i potrafi dostrzec to, czego nie widzą inni, i dlatego jest w opactwie potrzebny. Wydarzenia w opactwie opisuje Adso, uczeń i sekretarz Wilhelma i to jego oczyma śledzimy akcję. Wątek kryminalny wciąga, nie chce się od książki odchodzić.

Drugą warstwą jest obraz religii w średniowieczu, wieki ciemne, triumf wiary i zarazem bojaźni sprawił, że wszelkie formy władzy posiadało duchowieństwo. To oni umieli pisać i czytać, dbali o księgi i zachowanie ich dla kolejnych pokoleń. Dlatego też czuli się lepsi od zwykłych ludzi, biednych i nierzadko dotkniętych przez los. Trzymanie przywileju pisania i czytania dla siebie pozwalało im zachować wysoki status. W opactwie tym toczy się dyskusja na temat ubóstwa mnichów, podczas tygodnia bogatego w wydarzenia odbywa się spotkanie wysłanników papieża ze zwolennikami ubóstwa. Kościół sprzeciwiał się postawie św. Franciszka, która to rzucała cień na bogactwa i zbytki dostępne dla papieża i kościoła w ogóle. „Imię Róży” zawiera mnóstwo fragmentów i dysput związanych ze stanem kościoła w średniowieczu.

Mamy tu też rozważania na temat śmiechu, wiedzy i dążenia do jej zdobywania czy nawet kilka słów o miłości. Krótko mówiąc, powieść jest ciekawa, im bardziej się wgłębiamy tym więcej elementów dostrzegamy. Że już nie wspomnę o tle historycznym – średniowiecze stało się dla mnie bardziej zrozumiałe, zawsze postrzegałam je jako wieki ciemne, łatwowierni i bojaźliwi ludzie, którzy niewiele maja do powiedzenia o swym życiu. Eco przedstawia średniowiecze „od kuchni” co pozwoliło mi znaleźć odpowiedź na pytanie dlaczego tak się właśnie dzieje.

Ultima settimana del novembre 1327. Ludovico il Bavaro assedia Pisa e si dispone a scendere verso Roma, il papa è ad Avignone e insiste per avere al suo cospetto Michele da Cesena, generale dei francescani, i quali qualche anno prima hanno proclamato a Perugia che Cristo non ha avuto proprietà alcuna. Dottrina eretica, come eretici sono i fraticelli, i cui roghi illuminano l’Italia e la Francia, come eretiche erano le bande armate di fra Dolcino, debellato e bruciato da due decenni. Su questo sfondo storico si svolge la vicenda di questo romanzo, ovvero del manoscritto misterioso di Adso da Melk, un novizio benedettino che ha accompagnato in una abbazia dell’alta Italia frate Guglielmo da Baskerville, incaricato di una sottile e imprecisa missione diplomatica. Ex inquisitore, amico di Guglielmo di Occam e di Marsilio da Padova, frate Guglielmo si trova a dover dipanare una serie di misteriosi delitti (sette in sette giorni, perpetrati nel chiuso della cinta abbaziale) che insanguinano una biblioteca labirintica e inaccessibile. Guglielmo risolverà il caso, forse troppo tardi, in termini di giorni, forse troppo presto, in termini di secoli. E per farlo dovrà decifrare indizi di ogni genere, dal comportamento dei santi a quello degli eretici, dalle scritture negromantiche al linguaggio delle erbe, da manoscritti in lingue ignote alle mosse diplomatiche degli uomini del potere. Difficile da definire (gothic novel, cronaca medievale, romanzo poliziesco, racconto ideologico a chiave, allegoria) questo romanzo (la cui storia si intreccia con la Storia — perché l’autore, forse mendacemente, asserisce che di suo non vi è una sola parola) può forse essere letto in tre modi. La prima categoria di lettori sarà avvinta dalla trama e dai colpi di scena, e accetterà anche le lunghe discussioni libresche, e i dialoghi filosofici, perché avvertirà che proprio in quelle pagine svagate si annidano i segni, le tracce, i sintomi rivelatori. La seconda categoria si appassionerà al dibattito di idee, e tenterà connessioni (che l’autore si rifiuta di autorizzare) con la nostra attualità. La terza si renderà conto che questo testo è un tessuto di altri testi, un «giallo» di citazioni, un libro fatto di libri. A ciascuna delle tre categorie l’autore comunque rifiuta di rivelare che cosa il libro voglia dire. Se avesse voluto sostenere una tesi, avrebbe scritto un saggio (come tanti altri che ha scritto). Se ha scritto un romanzo è perché ha scoperto, in età matura, che di ciò di cui non si può teorizzare, si deve narrare.

Umberto Eco è nato ad Alessandria (Piemonte) nel 1932. Ordinario di semiotica all’università di Bologna, è autore di molte opere saggistiche. Ha esordito nel 1956 con uno studio sull’estetica medievale. Il suo ultimo libro, del 1979, riguarda la situazione del lettore nei labirinti della narratività.

Убийство престарелого французского путешественника – лишь первое из цепи загадочных преступлений, происходящих на тихом постоялом дворе в Риме.

За расследование берутся знаменитый дипломат и разведчик Людовика XIV аббат Мелани и его «доктор Ватсон» (или, точнее, «аббат Адсон») – поваренок постоялого двора.

Погоня за таинственным убийцей ведет их все дальше – то в мрачный подземный мир римских катакомб, то в алхимические лаборатории, то в лабиринты Ватикана, где готовится покушение на жизнь папы Иннокентия XI…

Однако загадка все еще остается загадкой, а преступник все еще идет на шаг впереди охотников!

n 15th century Venice it is a dangerous time to be alive. A permanent winter has rolled in over the canals and bodies keep washing up on the banks of the city. These bodies are especially hard to identify, since they have been skinned.In the present day, a famous portrait by Titian has been discovered. Its subject: the 15th century suspected murderer Angelico Vespucci. The skins of Vespucci's victims were never found, so his guilt was never proven. Although it is rumoured that when the portrait arises, so will the man. And when flayed bodies start turning up all over the world, it looks like this is more than just a superstition. A murderer has been called back to life, and he is hungry for revenge.

If it had been only opium smuggled across the Turkish border, or even the savage murder of!the girl Mija of the notorious Cinema Bleu, it would not have involved Axe, America's super-secret intelligence agency.

But the stakes were far higher- nothing less than the total security of nations at the brink of World War III.

It was the climactic assignment for our ranking counter-espionage agent, the man with the frightening miniaturized weapons — Nick Carter, called by his fellow-agents Killmaster.

Università d’Islanda. In un mattino di fine ottobre, il silenzio del dipartimento di Storia viene lacerato da un grido. Aprendo la porta di uno stanzino, il direttore si vede crollare addosso un cadavere senza occhi e con una runa magica incisa sul petto. Il corpo è quello di Harald Guntlieb, enigmatico dottorando tedesco con la passione per il cupo periodo della caccia alle streghe. Ma chi era veramente Harald? Per la polizia, che chiude frettolosamente il caso con l’arresto di un piccolo spacciatore, era solo uno stravagante ragazzo ricco in vena di emozioni forti, dalle perversioni sessuali alle modificazioni corporee estreme. Per Matthew Reich, inviato in Islanda dalla famiglia Guntlieb per riaprire le indagini, era uno dei massimi esperti europei di magia nera, grazie a un’inestimabile quanto agghiacciante collezione ereditata dal nonno. Per Thora Gudmundsdottir, l’avvocatessa incaricata di assistere l’affascinante Matthew, era solo un figlio non amato, incamminatosi fra le tenebre per inseguire un miraggio. Non resta dunque che ripercorrere i passi del giovane in un folle labirinto sulle tracce di un libro maledetto, fra antichi sortilegi e moderne rivalità accademiche, per svelare un mistero sempre più tetro, complesso e intrigante…

Un mattino di una torrida estate sivigliana i coniugi Vega vengono trovati morti nella loro casa di Santa Clara, la città-giardino costruita nei primi anni Cinquanta dagli americani nella città andalusa. Malgrado ogni indizio sembri indicare un patto suicida, l’ispettore Javier Falcón è tutt’altro che convinto. Dalle indagini sull’attività di Rafael Vega, un costruttore di successo, emergono ambigui legami con la mafia russa. E i primi interrogatori rivelano che la comunità dell’esclusiva Santa Clara nasconde disperazione, fallimenti ed enigmi inconfessati. Fra i primi a parlare vi sono Marty Krugman, architetto americano che lavorava con Vega, e la bellissima moglie Madeleine. Si sono trasferiti lì, stando alle loro dichiarazioni, per sfuggire all’America del dopo 11 settembre, ma il loro passato sembra nascondere ben altre motivazioni. Un altro vicino chiamato in causa è l’attore Fabio Ortega, la cui stella si è offuscata dopo che il figlio è finito in galera per un delitto infamante. Sotto il caldo impietoso dell’Andalusia l’elenco delle morti misteriose si allunga. E dopo che una nuova pista sembra portare Falcón a un giro di pedofili che si credeva debellato, seguiamo col fiato sospeso l’ispettore mentre collega indizi e fili in apparenza irrilevanti e ricostruisce un complicato intrigo che lo costringe a confrontarsi con le atrocità della psiche umana.

The detached yet penetrating account of the savage and senseless murder of a family.


With the publication of this book, Capote permanently ripped through the barrier separating crime reportage from serious literature. As he reconstructs the 1959 murder of a Kansas farm family and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, Capote generates suspense and empathy.

A nine year old boy is found raped and murdered at the bottom of a well near a beach resort in southern Italy. A Senegalese itinerant peddler is accused in what looks like a hopeless case taken on by Guido Guerrieri, counsel for the defence. Faced with small-town racism fuelled by recent immigration from Africa, Guido attempts to exploit the esoteric workings of the Italian courts. More than a perfectly paced legal thriller, this is a relentless suspense novel that goes way beyond the genre.

A dark secret keeps Chicago assistant state's attorney Kristen Mayhew as tightly wound as the springy red curls she works to pin down. Meals at the nearby diner, sleepless nights renovating her empty house and days in court where the bad guy more often than not doesn't face justice make up her life-until she finds the bodies of three criminals she failed to convict in the trunk of her car. Each dead body comes accompanied by a sinister letter, the writer informing "Dearest Kristen" that justice has been done on her behalf. An unusual twist for a suspense novel, to be sure, but because the murderer preys on rapists, gang members and pedophiles, Rose'strademark tentacles of fear never fully extend (as they did in her earlier books, Don't Tell and Have You Seen Her). Instead, this book's greatest strength lies in the romance between Kristen and handsome detective Abe Reagan, who's still reeling from the death of his wife. Abundant side characters, including Abe's entire jovial clan, clutter the plot and diminish the story's tension, especially when minor players suddenly step forward to play major roles. But readers will appreciate Rose's sensitive portrayal of Kristen's hesitancy to trust and Abe's gentle perseverance in uncoiling the vibrant woman within.

A stirring page-turner from the bestselling author of the Mitford Series.

Jan Karon's new series, launched with her New York Times bestselling Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!" said The Washington Post.

In this second novel, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite-a sentiment readers everywhere are certain to share.

Come in "Angeli e demoni" e ne "Il codice da Vinci" il protagonista de "Il simbolo perduto" è Robert Langdon, professore di Harvard specializzato in simbologia. Langdon, a Washington per una conferenza, si trova coinvolto in una serie di segreti legati alla massoneria americana dopo che il suo amico Peter Solomon, esponente della massoneria, viene rapito. A questo punto a Langdon non rimane che cominciare ad indagare per salvare il suo amico; in sole 12 ore, aiutato dalla sorella di Solomon, dovrà decifrare il simbolo perduto in un susseguirsi di misteri, colpi di scena, imprevisti e realtà nascoste.

Robert Langdon, professore di simbologia ad Harvard, è in viaggio per Washington. È stato convocato d’urgenza dall’amico Peter Solomon, uomo potentissimo affiliato alla massoneria, nonché filantropo, scienziato e storico, per tenere una conferenza al Campidoglio sulle origini esoteriche della capitale americana. Ad attenderlo c’è però un inquietante fanatico che vuole servirsi di lui per svelare un segreto millenario. Langdon intuisce qual è la posta in gioco quando all’interno della Rotonda del Campidoglio viene ritrovato un agghiacciante messaggio: una mano mozzata col pollice e l’indice rivolti verso l’alto. L’anello istoriato con emblemi massonici all’anulare non lascia ombra di dubbio: è la mano destra di Solomon. Langdon scopre di avere solamente poche ore per ritrovare l’amico. Viene così proiettato in un labirinto di tunnel e oscuri templi, dove si perpetuano antichi riti iniziatici. La sua corsa contro il tempo lo costringe a dar fondo a tutta la propria sapienza per decifrare i simboli che i padri fondatori hanno nascosto tra le architetture della città. Fino al sorprendente finale. Un nuovo capitolo de "Il Codice da Vinci", un thriller dalla trama mozzafiato, che si snoda a ritmo incalzante in una selva di simboli occulti, codici enigmatici e luoghi misteriosi.

Evie Wilson was the victim of the villain in DON'T TELL, an assault which resulted in paralysis on one side of her face. After her injury, Evie retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye by interacting with online friends. Now, with the help of a surgeon, Evie's face is restored and she is ready to return to the real world. However, she remains connected to the Internet for her graduate thesis on using the virtual world as therapy to improve self-esteem. She has become an online shopkeeper who sells faces and bodies to users interested in building a new avatar on a website called "Shadowland." In her new role, Evie maintains "surveillance" over her test subjects to ensure they don't become too caught up in the intoxicating virtual realm.

Meanwhile, homicide detective Noah Webster has been investigating a string of suspicious suicides that he believes are connected murders. Noah's investigation leads him to Evie when one of her online test subjects is found dead of apparent suicide, but Evie believes otherwise.

Evie is shocked to find herself drawn to someone for the first time in many years and she's reluctant to trust Noah. However, he's the only one who believes her story about the suspicious death of her test subject, and he soon discovers that many of the apparent suicides in his case had avatars in "Shadowland."

As murder victims connected to the website begin to appear more frequently, Noah asks Evie to be his virtual guide in the investigation. However, they don't realize that the killer is closer than they think-and that he holds a special grudge against Evie.

обложка книги I Kill I Kill

A best-seller across Europe, Italian author Faletti’s first novel is a top-notch thriller. Monte Carlo, in Monaco, is supposed to be one of the safest places on earth, with a police force more concerned with paparazzi than with homicide, but that all changes when a mystery man calls a popular radio show. The next day two faceless bodies are discovered, along with I kill written in blood. The substantial cast of characters that assembles to find the killer is led by Frank, a former FBI agent; Frank’s best friend, Nicholas, the police commissioner; and the charismatic DJ Jean-Loup Verdier. All the characters are fully fleshed and three-dimensional, which makes the use of multiple viewpoints particularly enjoyable. The dialogue and narration could have been a little tighter, but Faletti manages to pull it off, maintaining a good pace and masterfully building tension through 600 pages, a clear sign of a major new talent. This one will appeal not only to devotees of European crime fiction but also to thriller fans in general.

The voice on the radio. The writing, red as blood. I kill…A detective and an FBI agent embark upon the most harrowing case of their careers as they attempt to track down an enigmatic killer in this relentlessly suspenseful thriller. The killer announces his heinous acts in advance with desperate phone calls and ties his crimes together with songs that point to his victims; he then mutilates them and removes their faces. Set in Monte Carlo and featuring an international cast of intriguing characters, the hunt for the deranged perpetrator remains gripping and unsettling, possibly even more so, after the killer's identity is revealed and the detectives must close in on their target before he strikes again.

Millers Kill reaches the boiling point in this white-hot novel of love and suspense

People die. Marriages fail. In the small Adirondack town of Millers Kill, New York, however, life doesn't stop for heartbreak. A brand-new officer in the police department, a breaking-and-entering, and trouble within his own family keep Police Chief Russ Van Alstyne busy enough to ignore the pain of losing his wife--and the woman he loves.

At St. Alban's Episcopal Church, the Reverend Clare Fergusson is trying to keep her vestry, her bishop, and her National Guard superiors happy--all the while denying her own wounded soul.

When a Mexican farmhand stumbles over a Latino man killed with a single shot to the back of his head, Clare is sucked into the investigation through her involvement in the migrant community. The discovery of two more bodies executed in the same way ignites fears that a serial killer is loose in the close-knit community. While the sorrowful spring turns into a scorching summer, Russ is plagued by media hysteria, conflict within his department, and a series of baffling assaults.

As the violence strikes closer and closer to home, an untried officer is tested, a wary migrant worker is tempted, and two would-be lovers who thought they had lost everything must find a way to trust each other again--before it becomes forever, fatally, too late.

Julia Spencer-Fleming shows you can escape danger--but not desire--in her most suspenseful, passionate novel yet.

One of today's solid-gold A-list must-read writers." – Lee Child

A thrilling tale of suspense, vengeance, and murder, featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett. This one will break C. J. Box out to a larger audience.

J. W. Keeley is a man with a score to settle. He blames one man for the death of his brother: Joe Pickett. And now J. W. is going to make him suffer. Spring has finally come to Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is relieved the long, harsh winter is finally over. However, a cloud of trouble threatens to spoil the milder weather-local ranch owner and matriarch Opal Scarlett has vanished under suspicious circumstances. Two of her sons, Hank and Arlen, are battling for control of their mother's multi-million-dollar empire, and their bitter fight threatens to tear the whole town apart.

Everyone is so caught up in the brothers' battle that they seem to have forgotten that Opal is still missing. Joe is convinced, though, that one of the brothers killed their mother.

Determined to uncover the truth, he is attacked and nearly beaten to death by Hank Scarlett's new right-hand man on the ranch-a recently arrived stranger who looks eerily familiar.

A series of threatening messages and attempts to sabotage Joe's career follow. At first, he thinks the attacks are connected with his investigation of Opal's disappearance, but he soon learns that someone else is after him-someone with a very personal grudge who wants to make Joe pay… and pay dearly. Compelling and suspenseful, In Plain Sight is a crackling novel from one of today's best mystery writers.

обложка книги Instynkt pięknej Inez Instynkt pięknej Inez

Carlos Fuentes w tej niedużej, ale fascynującej bogactwem nastrojów i przemyśleń opowieści, mówi, że "wszystko, co ukryte, czeka po prostu na nasze uważne spojrzenie". Pozornie banalny romans, stanowiący główny wątek powieści, eksploduje dramatyzmem, skłaniając czytelnika do zastanowienia się nad zagadką mijającego czasu i odradzającej się w kolejnych wcieleniach miłości.

Zagłębiając się w "podwójny", stworzony przez Fuentesa świat, znajdujemy odpowiedź na pytania, które przed nami stawia. Ale może nie będzie to odpowiedź jednoznaczna, lecz inna dla każdego z nas?

Powieść zaczyna się jakby od środka – głównego bohatera poznajemy jako 93-letniego starca (niegdyś cenionego dyrygenta), wpatrującego się w pewien przedmiot, stanowiący ważny rekwizyt w całej książce. Jest to kryształowa pieczęć (autor opisuje ją dokładnie), będąca czymś w rodzaju amuletu czy symbolu doskonałości (jest okrągła i gładka). Stary dyrygent nie potrafi się bez niej obejść, chociaż z całą pewnością nie służy ona do pieczętowania czegokolwiek. Motyw pieczęci przewija się przez całą książkę. Główny wątek fabularny powieści to historia niespełnionej miłości dyrygenta i utalentowanej śpiewaczki o imieniu Inez. Historię tę poznajemy poprzez retrospekcję. Oto lata II wojny światowej, Anglia, bombardowany Londyn. Dyrygent (wówczas młody, ale już sławny) wywozi piękną Inez do nadmorskiej miejscowości, gdzie jednak miłosna przygoda nie znajdzie spełnienia, natomiast czytelnik dowiaduje się o istnieniu tajemniczej "trzeciej osoby". Jednocześnie z tym wątkiem pojawia się drugi: opowieść o związku dwojga ludzi z prehistorycznej przeszłości – będzie się ona przeplatać z historią dwojga poznanych już bohaterów. Dyrygent i śpiewaczka, po latach sukcesów artystycznych, spotykają się tylko raz, w 19 lat po pamiętnym (i na dobrą sprawę, niezrozumiałym) rozstaniu. Po wspólnym występie – jest to "Potępienie Fausta" Berlioza widzą się już tylko po to, aby się pożegnać i stwierdzić, że nie byli sobie przeznaczeni. Książka Fuentesa zadziwia nieoczekiwanymi chwytami, nagłą zmianą stylistyki i nastrojów. Wielki urok ma też subtelna analiza wątków miłosnych. Ważne miejsce w powieści zajmuje muzyka. W tle wciąż obecny jest motyw ze wspomnianego utworu Berlioza, analizowanego w ciekawy sposób. Na końcowych stronach książki żegnamy się ze starym dyrygentem, który, wiedząc, że niedługo umrze, wraca myślą do Inez i… kryształowej pieczęci.

обложка книги I'm God I'm God

A serial killer holds New York in his grip. He does not choose his victims. Nor does he watch them die. But then there are too many of them for that. The explosion of a twenty-two storey building, followed by the casual discovery of a letter, lead the police to face up to a dreadful reality: some of New York's buildings were mined at the time of their construction. But which ones? And how many? A young female detective hiding her personal demons behind a tough appearance, and a former press photographer with a past he'd rather forget, and for which he still seeks forgiveness, are the only hope of stopping this psychopath. A man who does not even claim responsibility for his actions. A man who believes himself to be God. Praise for the Giorgio Faletti: "In my neck of the woods, people like Faletti are called larger than life, living legends". (Jeffery Deaver). "Publishing sensation". ("Financial Times"). "I Kill is one of those bestsellers that proceeds at a cracking pace and presses all the right buttons with clinical efficiency. Giorgio Faletti's thriller is set in Monte Carlo, home to so many obnoxious millionaires and their trophy girlfriends that what the city really needs is a serial killer. Enter just such a killer… The writing has no great literary pretentions, but then it does not have to. The plot is the thing". ("Sunday Telegraph). "The best selling first novel by Giorgio Faletti…has been defined as a masterpiece and Faletti himself as the best living Italian writer." (Corriere della Sera).

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.

But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.

Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets – then makes the mistake of falling in love with – Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future…

If she even has one.

Innocent In Death

The phenomenal series set in a future New York City returns as NYPSD Lt. Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher-and uncovers some extraordinary surprises. Craig Foster's death devastated his young wife, who'd sent him to work that day with a lovingly packed lunch. It shocked his colleagues at the private school, too, and as for the ten-year-old girls who found him in his classroom in a pool of bodily fluids-they may have been traumatized for life.

Eve soon determines that Foster's homemade lunch was tainted with deadly ricin, and that Mr. Foster's colleagues have some startling secrets of their own. It's Eve's job to sort it out- and discover why someone would have done this to a man who seemed so inoffensive, so pleasant… so innocent.

Now Magdalena Percell… there's someone Eve can picture as a murder victim. Possibly at Eve's own hands. The slinky blonde-an old flame of her billionaire husband, Roarke-has arrived in New York, and she's anything but innocent. Roarke seems blind to Magdalena 's manipulation, and he insists that the occasional lunch or business meeting with her is nothing to worry about… and none of Eve's business. Eve's so unnerved by the situation that she finds it hard to focus on her case. Still, she'll have to put aside her feelings, for a while at least-because another man has just turned up dead.

Eve knows all too well that innocence can be a facade. Keeping that in mind may help her solve this case at last. But it may also tear apart her marriage.

When journalist Avery Chauvin returns home to Cypress Springs, Louisiana, after twelve years, it's as if time has stood still. Yet for her everything has changed – her mother died a year ago and now her father is gone. Devastated by her father's suicide and her inability to save him, Avery has taken a leave of absence from her newspaper job to come back and put his affairs in order. But in truth, she has come looking for answers. How could her father, a physician who dedicated himself to preserving life, have taken his own?

As Avery begins the heartbreaking task of cleaning out her parents' home, she discovers a box of fifteen-year-old newspaper articles covering the same event – the brutal murder of a young woman in Cypress Springs. Why, she wonders, did her father keep the clippings?

Then Avery meets a newcomer to Cypress Springs – a woman looking into her brother's sudden disappearance and into whispered rumors of strange happenings in town. Soon the events of the past and present take on a terrifying new meaning for Avery. A woman is found savagely murdered. An outsider passing through town vanishes. Neighbors go missing in the night.

Determined to get to the truth, Avery soon discovers that each layer of deceit she exposes is somehow linked to that long-ago murder – and to her father. Could he have been murdered?

Uncertain where to turn and whom to trust, Avery must face the fact that in this peaceful Southern town a terrible evil lives, protected – until now – by the power of silence.

Erica Spindler weaves a chilling tale of murder, betrayal and uncertain loyalties as she explores the razor edge between good and evil in a novel that will keep you turning the pages long into the night.

From the acclaimed, bestselling author of Stardust, The Good German, and Los Alamos – a gripping tale of an American undercover agent in 1945 Istanbul who descends into the murky cat-and-mouse world of compromise and betrayal that will come to define the entire post-war era.

A neutral capital straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul has spent the war as a magnet for refugees and spies. Even American businessman Leon Bauer has been drawn into this shadow world, doing undercover odd jobs and courier runs for the Allied war effort. Now as the espionage community begins to pack up and an apprehensive city prepares for the grim realities of post-war life, he is given one more assignment, a routine job that goes fatally wrong, plunging him into a tangle of intrigue and moral confusion.

Played out against the bazaars and mosques and faded mansions of this knowing, ancient Ottoman city, Leon's attempt to save one life leads to a desperate manhunt and a maze of shifting loyalties that threatens his own. How do you do the right thing when there are only bad choices to make? Istanbul Passage is the story of a man swept up in the aftermath of war, an unexpected love affair, and a city as deceptive as the calm surface waters of the Bosphorus that divides it.

Rich with atmosphere and period detail, Joseph Kanon's latest novel flawlessly blends fact and fiction into a haunting thriller about the dawn of the Cold War, once again proving why Kanon has been hailed as the 'heir apparent to Graham Greene' (The Boston Globe).

Imitation in Death

Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas encounters one of her most difficult cases in this latest offering from J. D. Robb, alter ego of bestselling author Nora Roberts. With the very first victim, Eve realizes that the killer stalking the streets of New York City isn't a run-of-the-mill serial murderer. The copycat executions are imitating the methods and victim choices of an ominous list of notorious serial killers, beginning with Jack the Ripper. And when the killer leaves a distinctive note at the crime scene, it's clear that he's targeting Eve personally-a fact that worries Roarke, Eve's shrewd husband.

Assisted by her aide, Peabody, Eve compiles a list of suspects that includes several high-profile possibilities. Their very prominence, however, complicates the investigation, for they have the power and influence to make the search difficult. All of the suspects are reluctant to cooperate but one of them is playing with Eve like a cat with a mouse by tempting her with crime scene notes and challenging her to find him. Can Eve stop him before he slaughters again? Or will his next victim be Eve herself?

Author Robb, a.k.a. Roberts, doesn't miss a beat in this police procedural thriller. The futuristic setting is rich with imaginative details; the cast of supporting characters offers an intriguing variety, while Eve and Roarke's relationship is layered with emotional intimacy and spiced with sex. Whether you're a faithful follower or new to the series, you won't be disappointed in the edge-of-the-seat suspense in Imitation In Death. Don't miss this one.

Berlin 1934. The Nazis have been in power for just eighteen months but already Germany has seen some unpleasant changes. As the city prepares to host the 1936 Olympics, Jews are being expelled from all German sporting organisations – a blatant example of discrimination.

The discovery of two bodies – one a businessman and the other a Jewish boxer – involves Bernie in the lives of two hotel guests. One is a beautiful left-wing journalist intent on persuading America to boycott the Berlin Olympiad; the other is a German-Jewish gangster who plans to use the Olympics to enrich himself and the Chicago mob.

Immortal in Death

From Publishers Weekly

The year is 2056. mood-altering drugs are legal, prostitution is licensed, virtual-reality games have replaced TV sets for entertainment and New York supercop Eve Dallas continues her sleuthing in Robb's fourth installment in the Death series (Naked in Death, Glory in Death, etc.). This time around, Eve has married her soul mate, Roarke, and is caught up in the puzzling suicide of a technician who's been working on Roarke's unfinished space resort. The young tech, Eve learns, had cheerfully hanged himself after a VR trip. Back on Earth, autopsies from two similar suicides reveal a pin-sized burn on the brains of the victims. All clues point to a deadly subliminal message in a VR toy?one that Roarke produces. This is sexy, gritty, richly imagined suspense. The fact that it is written by Nora Roberts under the pseudonym J.D. Robb is a tribute to her versatility.

In Dark Places

From Publishers Weekly

Those who prefer thrillers packed with psychological complexity, truly demented characters and nonstop, unexpected plot twists will enjoy this terrifying treat from Prescott (Next Victim, etc.). Brilliant psychiatrist Robin Cameron seems on the verge of success with an experimental program that uses a magnetic helmet to trigger, then modify, old angers that cause criminal behavior. Atypical serial killer Justin Gray initially seems a promising subject for rehab since his murders of high school girls involved mixed motivation-she didn't torture them or sexually molest them, and he has to drink to deal with death. Indeed, Gray seems almost cuddly compared to traumatized LAPD Sergeant Alan Brand, who unwittingly admits to a cold-blooded killing while under Robin's care. When Gray escapes and Robin's teenaged daughter is kidnapped, Robin doesn't know who to accuse. The possibly rehabbed killer? The supposed good cop Alan? Or is there a bigger and more sinister conspiracy afoot? The suspense doesn't let up until the last page, and even then, readers will continue to speculate, as Robin does, whether a killer's yearning for blood is learned or innate. Without a doubt, this dark, compulsive read messes with your mind and makes you love it.

Iron Orchid

From Publishers Weekly

Having ditched her Orchid Beach, Fla., police chief post, returning supersleuth Holly Barker opts for a CIA career in Woods's by-the-numbers thriller, the fourth in the Barker series (Blood Orchid). Barely through basic training at a highly regimented CIA "training farm," Barker's class is suddenly enlisted to track down calculating killer (and opera buff) Teddy Fay (first seen in Woods's Capital Crimes). An ex-CIA agent himself, Fay uses insider information to continue assassinating international political figures who also happen to be enemies of the U.S. Barker stakes out the Metropolitan Opera House, and narrowly misses Teddy in disguise in several contrived set pieces. The narrative accelerates from a somewhat sluggish first half when CIA operatives' solid deliberation moves Barker ever closer to nabbing the elusive Fay-who, by the way, lives mere blocks away from her. But Fay dupes the CIA again, with the help of a Santa Claus costume, and assassinates a Saudi prince before vanishing. Woods's latest lacks the urgent plotting and bracing thrills needed to make it truly memorable, and though Barker is a tough, formidable protagonist, the question remains why she, after absconding with over $5.5 million in untraceable drug money, bothers to clock in at all. Only Barker's dog, Daisy the Doberman, knows for sure.

I is for Innocent

From Kirkus Reviews

California's formidable p.i. Kinsey Millhone (``A'' Is for Alibi, etc.), fired from her comfortable berth with Fidelity Insurance, now rents office space from busy Santa Teresa lawyer Lonnie Kingman. His usual outside investigator Morley Shine has died of a heart attack, and he hires Kinsey to take over the case that Morley was working on. It involves the upcoming trial of David Barney, acquitted of the six-year-old murder of his wife, Isabelle, but now being sued for wrongful death in civil court by Isabelle's first husband, Ken Voigt. Voigt, represented by Lonnie Kingman, is sure that Barney killed Isabelle and wants to keep her considerable fortune out of his hands. Lonnie thinks he has a strong case, buoyed by damning new evidence from drifter Curtis McIntyre. But what Kinsey finds as she begins to probe is a surprising number of people with reasons to hate Isabelle-among them Voigt's second wife, Francesca, and Isabelle's business mentor Peter Weidmann and his overprotective wife, Yolanda. She also uncovers curious gaps in Morley's files and begins to question his ``heart attack,'' as Lonnie's seemingly solid case collapses bit by bit, with her own life on the line in the gritty finale. A sober, resolute Kinsey, romanceless at the moment, and a clever, meaty puzzle-for which the publisher plans a 300,000 first printing. Rack up another winner for Grafton.

New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen's relentless, inventive novels take readers on pulse-racing thrill rides that are as satisfying as they are heart-stopping. Now, in this edge-of-your-seat suspense novel, a mysteriously isolated town stands abandoned as a silent watcher waits.

In Wyoming for a medical conference, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the-moment ski trip. But when their SUV stalls on a snow-choked mountain road, they're stranded with no help in sight.

As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in the remote village of Kingdom Come, where twelve eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Something terrible has happened in Kingdom Come: Meals sit untouched on tables, cars are still parked in garages. The town's previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the cold darkness – someone who is watching Maura and her friends.

Days later, Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli receives the grim news that Maura's charred body has been found in a mountain ravine. Shocked and grieving, Jane is determined to learn what happened to her friend. The investigation plunges Jane into the twisted history of Kingdom Come, where a gruesome discovery lies buried beneath the snow. As horrifying revelations come to light, Jane closes in on an enemy both powerful and merciless – and the chilling truth about Maura's fate.

Imperfect Strangers

From Publishers Weekly

Though Woods's (Heat) latest caper provides all the credibility of a soap opera, the novel also offers some of the guilty pleasures attendant to that TV format. When wine merchant Sandy Kinsolving meets art dealer Peter Martindale on a flight from London to NYC (the novel's primary locations), they are inspired by watching Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train to hatch their own version of that classic plot-in which two strangers each agree to commit murder for the other. It seems that both men have "troublesome" wives, so why doesn't Sandy kill Peter's spouse and Peter return the favor? After one lady is duly offed, however, events careen out of control. In fact, so many subsequent episodes occur (many of them preposterous and too tidily handled) that the murder pact gets lost. As often happens in the world of soaps, a glossy veneer lends an air of sophistication-a corner suite at London's Connaught Hotel, a cashier's check for $28 million-and, also, of unreality. (Even the dialogue begins to smack of Noel Coward.) Enjoyable for a time, the tony tinsel is overtaken by a blandness that ultimately undercuts the novel's would-be dramatic and psychological aspects. BOMC, QPB alternates; Harper Audio.

WOULD YOU KILL TO LIVE FOREVER?


When the body of a gunshot victim rolls into the Santa Fe morgue, it should be a day like any other for medical investigator Lillian Cruz. Yet upon examination, the corpse appears to be over a hundred years old with smallpox scars, and an odd wound protrudes from the victim's leg. Lodged in the femur, under decrepit scar tissue, is a bullet shaped like a musket ball. The bullet looks like it was fired during the Civil War and had remained in the victim's leg ever since.

Rattled by the discovery, Cruz instructs her assistant to take specimens to the state authorities immediately and not to tell a soul about it. Minutes after the assistant leaves, the lights go dark in the morgue and Cruz is kidnapped.

The Defense Intelligence Agency calls in former war correspondent Ethan Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, to discreetly investigate the disappearance. And very quickly, a relatively simple case turns into something much more sinister. With each new lead they uncover, Warner and Lopez are inadvertently bringing a warped and dangerous individual closer to achieving a catastrophic goal: immortality.


In the spine-chilling tradition of Michael Crichton and James Rollins, Immortal is an action-packed blockbuster that combines science, suspense, and ingenious speculation.

In a masterwork of international adventure, supernatural mystery, and apocalyptic prophecy, New York Times bestselling authors James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell open the next chapter in a world of shadow and light, of salvation and damnation, where the fate of the heavens is locked within a child of…


Innocent Blood


A vicious attack at a ranch in California thrusts archaeologist Erin Granger back into the folds of the Sanguines, an immortal order founded on the blood of Christ and tasked with protecting the world from the beasts haunting its shadows and waiting to break free into the sunlight. Following the prophetic words found in the Blood Gospel — a tome written by Christ and lost for centuries — Erin must join forces with Army Sergeant Jordan Stone and the dark mystery that is Father Rhun Korza to discover and protect a boy believed to be an angel given flesh.

But an enigmatic enemy of immense power and terrifying ambition seeks the same child — not to save the world, but to hasten its destruction. For any hope of victory, Erin must discover the truth behind Christ's early years and understand His first true miracle, an event wrapped in sin and destruction, an act that yet remains unfulfilled and holds the only hope for the world.

The search for the truth will take Erin and the others across centuries and around the world, from the dusty plains of the Holy Land to the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean, from the catacombs of Rome to an iron fortress in the Mediterranean Sea, and at last to the very gates of Hell itself, where their destiny — and the fate of mankind — awaits.

With The Blood Gospel, the first novel in the Order of the Sanguines series, James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell breathtakingly combined science, myth, and religion and introduced a world where miracles hold new meaning and the fight for good over evil is far more complicated than we ever dreamed. In Innocent Blood they again take us to the edge of destruction… and into the deepest reaches of imagination.

Tensions flare in Northwest Asia and Op-Center races to prevent World War III in this chilling, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller from the authors of the USA Today bestseller Out of the Ashes.


When a team of assassins murder a high-ranking North Korean general and his family in their sleep, making it look like a robbery, events are set in motion that could shake the balance of world powers. Meanwhile, a U.S. naval combat ship, the USS *Milwaukee*, is attacked by North Korean forces in the middle of a training exercise off the shore of South Korea, and Commander Kate Bigelow is forced to ground the ship to avoid being captured. The crew takes refuge on a tiny island, trapped dangerously between the grounded ship and a fleet of hostile North Korean soldiers.

Op-Center intelligence discovers a secret alliance behind the attack-a pact between China and North Korea that guarantees China total control of a vast oil reserve found beneath the Yellow Sea. As both sides marshal their forces for a major confrontation at sea, Chase Williams and his Op-Center organization devise a plan to secretly spirit the American crew from the island and out from under North Korean control. But the North Koreans are not finished. In a desperate gamble, they unleash a terrorist cell on the American homeland. Only Op-Center can uncover their plan and stop it in time to prevent a major catastrophe that could lead to all-out war.

The electrifying new thriller from New York Times bestseller Stephen Hunter takes you deep inside the mind of the most notorious serial killer of all time: Jack the Ripper.


In the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper slaughtered five prostitutes in London’s seamy Whitechapel District. He did not just kill — he ripped with a butcher’s glee — and then, after the particularly gruesome slaying of Mary Jane Kelly, he disappeared. For 127 years, Jack has haunted the dark corners of our imagination, the paradigm of the psychotic killer. We remember him not only for his crimes, but because, despite one of the biggest dragnets in London history, he was never caught.

I, Ripper is a vivid reimagining of Jack’s personal story entwined with that of an Irish journalist who covered the case, knew the principals, charted the investigation, and at last, stymied, went off in a bold new direction. These two men stalk each other through a city twisted in fear of the madman’s blade, a cat-and-mouse game that brings to life the sounds and smells of the fleshpot tenderloin of Whitechapel and all the lurid acts that fueled the Ripper headlines.


Dripping with intrigue, atmosphere, and diabolical twists, this is a magnificent psychological thriller from perennial New York Times bestseller Stephen Hunter, who the San Francisco Examiner calls “one of the best storytellers of his generation.”

New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown goes beyond the headlines in this high-tech, high-tension military thriller in which a resurgent Russia enflames sectarian unrest and violence in Ukraine and Poland, setting off a stealth robotic war and escalating an international crisis.


In the spring of 2017, the U.S. economy is rebounding under President Stacy Anne Barbeau, the country's first female president. But her leadership is about to be severely tested: Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent special troops, disguised as pro-Russian activists, into Ukraine and Moldova. Though NATO is outraged, its response is tepid. Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former U.S. president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots.

Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched-without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID's initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale's secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians.

In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win?

Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.

Ancient human remains — all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre — cover the cavern floor, along with a number of brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare crystals are native to only one place on earth: a frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.

Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years prior to the first known human exploration? If so how? And why?

There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.

At their destination they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.

As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.

обложка книги I'm Thinking of Ending Things I'm Thinking of Ending Things

You will be scared. But you won’t know why…

I’m thinking of ending things. Once this thought arrives, it stays. It sticks. It lingers. It’s always there. Always.

Jake once said, “Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can’t fake a thought.”

And here’s what I’m thinking: I don’t want to be here.

In this deeply suspenseful and irresistibly unnerving debut novel, a man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. When the two take an unexpected detour, she is left stranded in a deserted high school, wondering if there is any escape at all. What follows is a twisted unraveling that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.

In this smart, suspenseful, and intense literary thriller, debut novelist Iain Reid explores the depths of the human psyche, questioning consciousness, free will, the value of relationships, fear, and the limitations of solitude. Reminiscent of Jose Saramago’s early work, Michel Faber’s cult classic Under the Skin, and Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk about Kevin, I’m Thinking of Ending Things is an edgy, haunting debut. Tense, gripping, and atmospheric, this novel pulls you in from the very first page…and never lets you go.

Russia's new ballistic missile submarine, Yuriy Dolgorukiy, is being deployed on its first patrol while America's newest fast attack submarine, North Dakota, is assigned to trail it and collect intel. As the Russian submarine heads under the polar ice cap, its sonar readings reveal the trailing American sub and cause the Russians to begin a radical, evasive maneuver. This, however, fails and the submarines collide, resulting in damage that sends both to the bottom.

The Americans immediately set up a rescue mission, sending a new submarine and a SEAL team to establish an ice camp — Ice Station Nautilus — and stage a rescue. The Russians also send men and material, ostensibly to rescue their own men, but the Russian Special Forces team is also there to take the American base camp and the American sub, leaving no survivors or traces of their actions. As the men in North Dakota struggle to survive, the SEAL team battles for possession of the submarine.


Rick Campbell's Ice Station Nautilus is an epic battle above and below the ice, Special Forces against SEALs, submarine against submarine, with survival on the line.

Starred Review. While Miles's patients start remarking about loved ones not seeming to be themselves, he merely chalks it up to paranoia. However, when he becomes witness to a distinct but subtle change in the personality of some townspeople, he and his friends realize something is afoot. Their fears are realized as they stumble upon faceless corpses and strange pods. But the pod people are spreading fast, and Miles is running out of places to hide and people to help him. Finney's classic tale of alien invasion is recreated anew with more terror than the book or the film. Tabori delivers a performance that will chill listeners with his intensity and sense of urgency. His lightly raspy and mature voice works perfectly through the first-person perspective of Miles. He captures the mood and adjusts his pitch, speed and tone accordingly. By the end of this production, listeners will believe they are listening to Miles himself and not just some narrator. A brief interview with Tabori at the end reveals that he's the son of Don Siegel, who directed the original 1957 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

обложка книги In the Company of Liars In the Company of Liars

"A highly intelligent thriller that burrows backward through time like Houdini explaining a trick. An automatic book-of-the-year." – Lee Child

In the Company of Liars is a truly original thriller, strikingly fresh and unpredictable. Told in chronological reverse, from its enigmatic end to its brilliant beginning, the novel is centered on a woman who is on trial for murder-Allison Pagone, a mother caught between competing forces, each represented by someone who may not care if the pressure kills her in the end. A prosecutor wants Allison convicted and put on death row. An FBI agent believes she can squeeze her into ratting on her family. A daughter and an ex-husband need to save their own skins. And circling them all: a group who would prefer to eliminate her quietly and anonymously, but who also are not what they seem.

Our first picture of Allison is in the moments following her death. The story then moves backward in time like the cult film Memento: an hour earlier, then the day before, back and back to the beginning, until we can see what's really happened-and, most shocking, what hasn't. At every turn, Allison Pagone knows that what she sees may not be what's real. The only sure thing is her place in a vortex of half-truths, threats, and suspicion. When her nightmare is over, will she awake in the company of friends -or in the company of liars?

Kelly was never the sharpest knife in the drawer, and what started clean soon became messy, as two of his partners cut themselves into the action; a determined former Texas Ranger makes tracking Kelly his mission; and Kelly's wife, ever alert to her own self-interest, starts playing both ends against the middle.

The result is a mesmerizing tale set in the first days of the modern FBI, featuring one of the best femmes fatales in history-the Lady Macbeth of Depression-era crime-a great unexpected hero, and some of the most colorful supporting characters in recent crime fiction.

Sergeant Logan McRae is in trouble...

His missing-persons investigation has just turned up a body in the woods — naked, hands tied behind its back, and a bin bag duct-taped over its head. The Major Investigation Team charges up from Aberdeen, under the beady eye of Logan’s ex-boss Detective Chief Inspector Steel. And, as usual, she wants him to do her job for her.

But it’s not going to be easy: a new Superintendent is on her way up from the Serious Organised Crime Task Force, hell-bent on making Logan’s life miserable; Professional Standards are gunning for Steel; and Wee Hamish Mowat, head of Aberdeen’s criminal underbelly, is dying — leaving rival gangs from all over the UK eying his territory.

There’s a war brewing and Logan’s trapped right in the middle, whether he likes it or not.

A resident of one of LA's toughest neighborhoods uses his blistering intellect to solve the crimes the LAPD ignores.

East Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the neighborhood's high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, lost children unrecovered. But someone from the neighborhood has taken it upon himself to help solve the cases the police can't or won't touch.

They call him IQ. He's a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he's forced to take on clients who can pay.

This time it's a rap mogul whose life is in danger. As Isaiah investigates, he encounters a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of notorious cutthroats, a monstrous attack dog, and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. The deeper Isaiah digs, the more far reaching and dangerous the case becomes.

"A sure bet for one of the finest debut novels of the year." – Deborah Crombie

Secrets and lies can't stay buried forever in Cedar Valley.

In the summer, hikers and campers pack the small Colorado town's meadows and fields. And in the winter, skiers and snowboarders take over the mountains. Season by season, year after year, time passes and the lies, like the aspens and evergreens that surround the town, take root and spread deep.

Now, someone has uncovered the lies, and it is his murder that continues a chain of events that began almost forty years ago. Detective Gemma Monroe's investigation takes her from the seedy grounds of a traveling circus to the powerful homes of those who would control Cedar Valley's future.

Six-months pregnant, with a partner she can't trust and colleagues who know more than they're saying, Gemma tracks a killer who will stop at nothing to keep those secrets buried.

Beautifully written with a riveting plot and a richly drawn cast of characters, Inherit the Bones is a mesmerizing debut from Emily Littlejohn.

    Англия эпохи Регентства, январь 1813 года. После того как в одной из худших трущоб Лондона находят изуродованное тело доктора Дамиона Пельтана, а рядом с ним – тяжело раненную француженку, виконт Девлин оказывается вовлеченным в хитросплетение убийств и мести, где ставки очень высоки. Хотя пострадавшая Алекси Соваж ничего не помнит о нападении, Себастьян слишком хорошо знает ее по одному случаю из своего прошлого, когда жестокость военного времени и предательство чуть не погубили его.

    Поиски убийцы заводят виконта в коварную паутину двурушничества. Выясняется, что Пельтан был членом тайной делегации, посланной Наполеоном для изучения возможности заключить мир с Англией. Несмотря на предостережения своего могущественного тестя, Девлин углубляется в тайну «пропавшего дофина» – маленького принца, который исчез в самые смутные времена Великой французской революции, – и вскоре вступает в смертельно опасный конфликт с безжалостной и властной дочерью Марии-Антуанетты, сестрой дофина, которая полна решимости любой ценой вернуть себе французскую корону.

    Между тем как убийца подбирается все ближе, Себастьяну приходится бороться с возникшими страхами за здоровье Геро и ожидаемого вскоре ребенка. Когда Сен-Сир осознает, что ключ к их спасению может находиться в руках его давнего недруга, он вынужден в конце концов взглянуть в лицо правде о собственном давнем прегрешении, о котором боялся даже вспоминать…

    Магістр Ніколас Фандорін із «туманного Альбіону», відчувши поклик вітчизни не лише фібрами душі, а ще й унаслідок прочитання листа свого пращура до нащадків, одважується вирушити на пошуки легендарної Лібереї, так званої «бібліотеки Івана Грозного».

  •  Убийства на фоне глянца
     Бартлетт Алисия Хименес
     Детективы и Триллеры, Полицейский детектив, Детектив

    Почти одновременно происходят два убийства: первая жертва – молодая любовница министра, вторая – знаменитый журналист, автор глянцевых журналов и ведущий популярной телепрограммы. Гостями его передачи становились известные люди, с которыми он вел себя отнюдь не по-джентльменски, в своих “разоблачениях” не брезгуя самыми скандальными слухами и сплетнями. Врагов он нажил себе немало, и отомстить ему мечтали многие. Все новые и новые убийства сбивают полицию с толку, и круг подозреваемых настолько расширяется, что в успешное завершение этого дела уже мало кто верит. Следствие ведут инспектор полиции Петра Деликадо и ее верный помощник Фермин Гарсон – герои детективной серии, которая принесла испанской писательнице Алисии Хименес Бартлетт мировую известность и крупнейшие литературные награды как национальные, так и международные (премии Гринцане Кавур, Рэймонда Чандлера, Надаля, “Планета” и др.).
