Photo Finish

The Sommita lay spread-eagled on her back across a red counterpane. The bosom of her red biblical dress had been torn down to the waist and under her left breast, irrelevantly, unbelievably, the haft of a knife stuck out. The right arm, rigid as a branch, was raised in the fascist salute. She might have been posed for the jacket on an all-too-predictable shocker…

When Columba and Janetta Pilgrim think it unwise to leave their ancestral home after their brother suffers a fatal fall only days after talk of selling it, and Roger Pilgrim barely escapes two nearly fatal "accidents," Miss Maud Silver is called in to look into the case.

обложка книги Prisoner's Base Prisoner's Base

Readers who have long followed the adventures of Nero Wolfe will surely agree not only that this is one of the neatest murder puzzles ever set down by Rex Stout, but also that it is the most exciting, adventure-filled, and breathless story he ever told.

Nero Wolfe has represented some pretty unusual clients in his time, but in this one, his client — believe it or not — is the fast-talking, hard-hitting, skirt-chasing assistant and companion to Nero, Archie Goodwin himself.

We’ll make three bets with you abut Prisoner’s Base: First — you won’t solve it. Second — you’ll agree that no author ever played more fair with his readers. Third — when you finish it, you will feel as if you have been on a forty-eight-hour, breath-taking, danger-filled chase up and down the avenues of New York, into some of Manhattan’s darkest and more terror-filled alleys.

Elle était chinoise et s'appelait Li Pût, ce qui dans l'argot pékinois signifie Poison d'Avril. Ses parents l'avaient ainsi baptisée parce qu'elle était née au mois de janvier et que donc, Dû Cû, le papa de Li Pût, avait fécondé sa mère en avril et par inadvertance, un soir qu'il s'était pété à l'alcool de riz à 90°. Le père de Li Pût, Dû Cû, était docker à Pékin. Comment ? Qu'est-ce que tu dis ? Ah ! Y a pas la mer à Pékin ? Bon, alors il était tresseur de nattes ; ça te va ?

Quand Li Pût naquit, c'était l'année de la Morue. Tout le monde te dira, depuis Saint-André-le-Gaz (38) jusqu'à Nankin, que naître sous le signe de la Morue, hein ? Tu m'as compris ! Et c'est ce qui se passa, dix-sept ans plus tard, montre en main !

Des qu'ont la coquille Saint-Jacques large comme l'entrée de Westminster Abbaye, avec plein de capitaines de horse-guards batifolant du bonnet à poils entre leurs jambons ! Mais la mienne de princesse, pour ce qui est de l'entonnoir à chibres, elle est médaille d'or. Plus forcenée de l'arrière-boutique tu meurs !

Du reste, telle qu'elle est, tu meurs aussi !

Parce que cette princesse-là, elle collectionne les coups de braque, mais pas les amants ! Style Marguerite de Bourgogne en sa tour de Nesle, si tu vois le genre ?

Cela dit, faut que je t'avoue une chose : c'est pas une vraie princesse.

Et que je t'avoue encore une deuxième chose : c'est pas une vraie princesse, mais c'est une vraie salope !

D’étranges signes tracés à la peinture noire sur des portes dans tout Paris. À première vue, on pourrait croire à l’œuvre d’un tagueur. Le commissaire Adamsberg, lui, y décèle une menace sourde, un relent maléfique.

De son côté, Joss Le Guern, le Crieur de la place Edgar-Quinet, se demande qui glisse dans sa boîte à messages d'incompréhensibles annonces. Certains billets sont en latin, d’autres semblent copiés sur des ouvrages vieux de plusieurs siècles. Et tous prédisent le retour d'un fléau venu du fond des âges…

Grand Prix des Lectrices de Elle 2002

Une fois encore, Fred Vargas a réussi à marier des éléments et des situations totalement hétéroclites : personnages d'aujourd'hui et peurs médiévales, situations actuelles et plongées dans les racines du mal, écriture d'une élégance aux raffinements classiques et clins d'œil pleins d'humour.


FRED VARGAS, archéologue de métier, a créé le rompol, genre littéraire à part entière, où la narration est empreinte d'humour, de liberté, et de poésie. Ses romans ont fait l'objet d'adaptations cinématographiques et télévisuelles et son œuvre est désormais traduite dans plus de trente pays.

A Gross Business.

Wesley Pruiss was just a misunderstood and misled publishing entrepreneur. The dirtier his little magazine got the more money he made. There seemed to be no limit to the dirt or the money. His full-color monthly, called Gross, soon spawned a chain of raunchy nightclubs ("Grossouts") and now a spectacular motion picture was being planned. Disgusting un-American, even.

Enter Remo and Chiun. Not to destroy, but to protect! Disgusting, but very American.

Who'd want to kill a dirty publisher? Why worry about the rottenest, most depraved publication in history?

Because of the oil industry and their concern over the growth of solar energy, obviously. Oil makes the world go round. It'd be perverse to think otherwise.

..as you'll quickly learn in this thirty-sixth volume in the violent chronicle of the Destroyer, the invincible shatterer of worlds from Sinanju.

обложка книги Private Private

Jack Morgan is a war hero. Returning home from Afghanistan after being wounded, Jack is called into California State Prison to visit his father, Tom, who is serving a life sentence for extortion and murder. Before being incarcerated, Tom ran a private investigation firm called 'Private'. Tom wants Jack to re-start the company, to make it great again, and gives him access to a $15 million dollar account in the Cayman Islands to do it with. Five years later and Jack has set up offices spanning the globe. Private's services are much sort after and Jack has clients ranging from movie stars to politicians. Jack is keen to keep the business legal and not fall into the same traps as his father. But when the mob come calling, they are not easy to refuse. On a rare night off accompanying a client to the Golden Globe awards, Jack receives a phone call from school friend Abbie Cushman. Abbie's wife has been murdered and he desperately needs Jack's help. The murder is brutal and with no apparent motive; fingers begin pointing towards Abbie. Jack is certain that Abbie didn't kill his wife, but he will have to work night and day to prove it. Meanwhile, Jack's second-in-command at Private, Justine Smith, is helping the L.A.P.D. in a serial killer investigation. Over the past two years, twelve school girls from the same area in L.A. have been murdered. The killings are highly professional and so far the Police have no leads whatsoever. Justine has been called in to make use of her experience and Private's resources. A breakthrough is desperately needed, because these killings show no signs of stopping.

обложка книги Piranha Piranha

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon return in the extraordinary new novel in the #1 New York Times—bestselling series by the grand master of adventure.


May 1902: a volcano erupts on the French island of Martinique with devastating force. But the local population are not its only victims. Also destroyed is a ship carrying a German scientist on the verge of an astonishing breakthrough. More than a century later, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon are about to confront that scientist's terrifying legacy.

Cabrillo and his crew are forced to meticulously fake the sinking of the Oregon during a covert operation. But when an unknown adversary tracks them down despite their best-laid plans, Cabrillo and his team struggle to fight back against this would-be assassin who seems able to anticipate their every move.

Meanwhile it appears that a traitorous American weapons designer has completed the long dead German's work, and now wields an extraordinary power. This discovery forces the Oregon out of the shadows to prevent an attack that would lead the largest one man empire the world has ever known…


Displaying all the shotgun pace and breathtaking plotting that are Clive Cussler's hallmarks, Piranha is a inspired new thriller from the World's No. 1 Adventure Writer.

обложка книги Pig in a Poke Pig in a Poke

Можете ли вы представить себе поездку в компании десятков мертвых тел?

Что бы вы подумали о девушке с ярким макияжем, в короткой юбчонке и в чулках сеточкой?

А если она в компании с шустрым парнем?

Насколько реально проникнуть на территорию объекта, охраняемого покруче «красной кнопки», по крайней мере, не слабее?

Любите ли вы погоню?

А если это все — в одном флаконе?

Если вас заинтриговали эти вопросы, вы — наш читатель. Если нет — Донцова вам на полку. Ну, или Кафка.

Основанная на реальных событиях, книга делает читателя соучастником. А острый сюжет и сочный, вкусный современный язык поистине захватывает.

Редакция 17 июня 2017 г.


«Pig in a poke» — пролог большой многосюжетной истории, повествующей о создании, становлении и работе не существующей в действительности украинской спецгруппы по проведению «активных спецопераций особой важности». Проще говоря, это будет серия повестей и романов про отряд «ликвидаторов», действующий в странных и непривычных условиях русско-украинской гибридной войны.

Я вынашивал эту фабулу более года и наконец-то решился начать выкладывать ее на бумагу. Буду рад, если затронутые в книге темы найдут отклик в сердцах читателей, а придуманные и выстраданные персонажи заживут собственной жизнью.

Искренне ваш,

Автор

Книга основана на реальных событиях, но все действующие лица, имена, сцены, диалоги и взгляды являются плодом авторского воображения и не могут быть истолкованы как существовавшие или происходившие в реальной жизни. Всякое сходство с действительными людьми, как ныне здравствующими, так и умершими, является чисто случайным. Мысли и высказывания персонажей не совпадают с мировоззрением автора. Ряд деталей и топонимов изменены намеренно, чтобы не выдавать источники информации.

Текст содержит ненормативную лексику, сцены насилия, описания откровенно-натуралистического характера. Чтение лицами, не достигшими возраста 21 года, нежелательно.

Patriks Zīskinds

Parfīms

Patrika Zīskinda debijas romāns “Parfīms” ir īsta pērle labas literatūras cienītājiem. Parasti, lasot grāmatu, fonā klausos arī mūziku, bet “Parfīms” ir tik baudāms un nervus stindzinošs romāns, ka lasīju to naktī, klusumā, jo vēlējos uztvert katru vārdu, katru smaržas aprakstu un katru sīkāko notikumu.

Pirms grāmatas lasīšanas biju noskatījies grāmatas ekranizēto versiju: “Parfīms. Stāsts par kādu slepkavu”, bet grāmata ļāva vēlreiz izdzīvot Žana Batista Grenuija neticamo dzīvi. Šis darbs ir gluži narkotisks – tas paņem lasītāju savā varā, liek iztēloties smaržas, kuras apraksta Grenuijs, kā arī reizēm liek just līdzjūtību pret šo puisi, kaut gan viņš ir slepkava.

Daudzi lasītāji pamanīs, ka “Parfīma” stāsts nav nekas nedzirdēts – dīvaini bērni literatūrā vienmēr bijuši iecienīti – Aira Levins par šādu dīvainu bērnu uzrakstīja romānu “Rozmarijas bērns”, Dorisa Lesinga romānu “Piektais bērns”. Tomēr “Parfīms” ārkārtīgi atšķiras no pārējiem stāstiem par dīvainiem un pat biedējošiem bērniem.

Žans Batista Grenuijs šķiet gluži parasts bērns, tikai viņam ir kāda īpašība (vai labāk būtu teikt, ka viņam trūkst kāda īpašība), kas viņu atšķir no citiem – viņam nav smaržas. Puisis nesmaržo pēc cilvēka. Viņam nav raksturīgās siera, mēslu un sviedru smakas, kāda ir visiem Francijā dzīvojošajiem cilvēkiem – un Žans Batista atklāj lasītājiem to, ka mums cilvēkos patīk nevis viņu seja, ķermenis vai uzvedība, bet gan tieši smaržas aura, kas valda ap katru cilvēku. Dažiem indivīdiem šī smarža ir tik skaista, ka tā viņus pavada gluži kā zelta pavediens.

Visur, kur vien strādā Žans Batista, sāk plaukt smaržu tirdzniecība – viss tikai tāpēc, ka viņam ir perfekta oža un viņš spēj radīt neiedomājami skaistus aromātus. Tomēr viņu visu laiku vajā atmiņas par meiteni, kuru viņš nožņaudza kādā vārtrūmē, lai savā atmiņā saglabātu viņas smaržu. Viņu vajā apmātība – radīt aromātu, kas liktu cilvēkiem viņu neprātīgi mīlēt, tik ļoti mīlēt, ka viņi puisi uzskatītu par dievu.

Grāmata patiešām ir lieliska un reizē šokējoša – autora stāstījums un Žana Batista paustās domas bieži vien liek saprast, ka starp Žanu Batistu un Jēzu Kristu tiek vilktas paralēles. Viņš uzskata, ka ir varens, apgarots un pārāks par visu cilvēci – viņā mīt dievišķs spēks. Viņš sajūt to, ko nejūt neviens apkārtējais.

Grāmatas sākumā visi viņu izskata par velna izdzimumu, tomēr grāmatas noslēgumā viņa varenība uzplaiksnī gluži dievišķā un pārdabiskā veidā.

Šī grāmata ir kā mazliet biedējoša, smaržām un smakām pārpilna pasaka pieaugušajiem. Pēc grāmatas izlasīšanas iedomājos, ka šī ir lieliska grāmata, lai to vakaros vīrs lasītu sievai un otrādi. Stāstījums ir pagātnes formā un tā vien prasās, lai šo romānu lasītu gluži kā pasakas bērnībā. Katrā ziņā šī ir šokējoša, grandioza, apburoša, biedējoša un reizē stindzinoša grāmata.

Viena no labākajām grāmatām, kas jebkad sarakstīta.

Nākošreiz, pirms izvēlēsies smaržas, noteikti pie parfīmu stenda veikalā stāvēsi krietni vien ilgāk, jo arī tu apzināsies, ka smaržām ir sava pasaule un tām ir liels spēks.

Si votre meilleure copine vous offre pour vos trente ans les Mémoires de Lacenaire et un calibre .44 dans une boîte à chaussures, méfiez-vous ! Lisez au moins le mode d’emploi. C’est ce qu’aurait dû faire Fred avant d’abattre le député Rogemoux et de prendre la fuite à travers la Bretagne, en voiture, à vélo, à pied ou en kayak… Il aurait trouvé le carnet et les étranges QCM d’Alice. Il aurait vu les six balles creuses et les petits papiers. Il n’aurait pas été traqué par toutes les polices de France et ne serait pas devenu le gibier d’un terroriste basque aux tendances psychopathes. Il n’aurait surtout pas eu dans son sillage, comme une ombre dévorée de colère, le flic borgne Mc Cash. Lui ne lâchera jamais. Fred et Alice non plus. Quoi qu’il advienne. Plutôt crever !

Po pierwsze dla pieniędzy

Niezależność to wspaniała rzecz. Własny kąt, z dala od rodziców, dzielony jedynie z chomikiem Rexem, to dla Stefanie Plum rzecz godna wszelkich poświęceń. Tych poświęceń musi być jednak coraz więcej, bowiem niewierny mąż już od dawna jest przeszłością (na szczęście!) i nie można liczyć na jego wsparcie finansowe. Nieaktualna jest także już od pół roku posada w sklepie z bielizną, ilość sprzętów domowych nadających się do spieniężenia coraz bardziej się kurczy, a na dodatek właśnie odebrano jej samochód kupiony na raty w okresie prosperity.

Co zrobić? Zaszantażować kuzyna i zamiast nudnej pracy w papierkach zostać łowcą nagród! A dokładniej – zajmować się odnajdywaniem i dostarczaniem policji osób zwolnionych za kaucją, które nie pojawiły się w sądzie.

Stefanie jest gotowa zrobić wszystko, byle tylko w jej lodówce pojawiło się w końcu coś więcej niż pleśń. Problem jednak z osobą, na którą jest wystawione jej pierwsze zlecenie. Bowiem Joe Morelli, policjant oskarżony o morderstwo, spotkał się już nie raz ze Stefanie. Zwłaszcza jedno randez-vous sprzed kilkunastu lat, kiedy to uwiódł ją za kontuarem z eklerkami, żywo tkwi w jej pamięci.

Naszą bohaterkę czeka trudna droga do osiągnięcia celu. Z czasem okazuje się, że wina Morellego nie jest taka oczywista, a na dodatek Stefanie zadziera z psychopatycznym bokserem Ramirezem. Na szczęście Komandos, kolega z pracy, były żołnierz Oddziałów Specjalnych, pomaga jej stawiać pierwsze kroki w nowym zawodzie.

"Po pierwsze dla pieniędzy", jak i cała seria książek o Stefanie Plum, jest doskonałym lekiem na zły humor. Główna bohaterka to energiczna osoba, odznaczająca się optymizmem i brakiem rozwagi. Powieść jest pełna zwrotów akcji opisanych jędrnym, żywym językiem. Pokazuje w krzywym zwierciadle miasto New Jersey, z którego pochodzi "łowczyni nagród z piekła rodem", i z ciepłą ironią traktuje jego mieszkańców.

Stefanie Plum można by porównywać do bohaterek książek pisanych przez Fielding czy Grocholę. Nie jest już nastolatką, też ma problemy z facetami i przejmuje się swoim wyglądem. Więcej w niej jednak charyzmy i autoironii. Nawet z opalonymi brwiami i podbitym okiem (jej praca zdecydowanie nie należy do bezpiecznych!) jest gotowa osiągnąć swój cel.

Evanovich w jednym z wywiadów powiedziała, że specjalnie pisze krótkie książki, ponieważ jej poczucie humoru na dłuższą metę może się stać męczące. Efekt jest taki, że po pierwszej książce ma się nieodpartą ochotę na następną, i następną, i następną…

I uwaga techniczna: książki Evanovich czytałam w oryginale i zdecydowanie polecam to wszytkim tym, którzy znają trochę angielski. Zwłaszcza po tym, gdy usłyszałam o przetłumaczeniu przezwiska "Ranger" na "Leśnik". Ale być może to tylko plotka.

Po drugie dla forsy

30-letnia rozwódka, Stephanie Plum, zarabia na życie w niecodzienny sposób – zajmuje się ustalaniem miejsca pobytu zwolnionych za kaucją oskarżonych, którzy nie stawili się na rozprawę. Tym razem szuka aresztowanego pod zarzutem usiłowania zabójstwa Kenny'ego Mancuso, który złamał warunki zwolnienia i zniknął. Stephanie wpada na jego trop, lecz zanim doprowadzi sprawę do końca, narazie siebie i swoich najbliższych na śmiertelne niebezpieczeństwo

Nie jest to kryminał – zapewnia autorka, choć "trupy się poniewierają tam, oczywiście, i jakaś część kryminalna musi być, bez tego by się nie obeszło", ale zasadniczo jest to "powieść historyczna, która dzieje się w czasach współczesnych".

"Samo mi tak wyszło. I naprawdę, to od początku zaczęłam sama sobie pisać dla żartu, niepewna, co z tego wyniknie" – tłumaczy autorka.

Professor Moriarty Omnibus

In Doyle's original stories, Professor Moriarty is the bete noire of Sherlock Holmes, who deems the professor his mental equivalent and ethical opposite, declares him "the Napoleon of Crime, " and wrestles him seemingly to their mutual deaths at Reichenbach Falls. But indeed there are two sides to every story, and while Moriarty may not always tread strictly on the side of the law, he is also, in these novels, not quite about the person that Holmes and Watson made him out to be. The Infernal Device-A dangerous adversary seeking to topple the British monarchy places Moriarty in mortal jeopardy, forcing him to collaborate with his nemesis Sherlock Holmes. Death by Gaslight--A serial killer is stalking the cream of England's aristocracy, baffling both the police and Sherlock Holmes and leaving the powers in charge to play one last desperate card: Professor Moriarty. The Paradol Paradox-The first new Moriarty story in almost twenty years, it has never before appeared in print.

But now Kim Newman sheds light on the secret history of "Basher" Moran and the "Napoleon of Crime" and how they came together to solve the unsolvable and even change the course of history itself…all in the name of profit and, sometimes, occasional sheer bloody-mindedness.

S. J. Parris returns with the next Giordano Bruno mystery, set inside Queen Elizabeth's palace and steeped in period atmospherics and the strange workings of the occult.

It is the year of the Great Conjunction, when the two most powerful planets, Jupiter and Saturn, align — an astrological phenomenon that occurs once every thousand years and heralds the death of one age and the dawn of another. The streets of London are abuzz with predictions of horrific events to come, possibly even the death of Queen Elizabeth.

When several of the queen's maids of honor are found dead, rumors of black magic abound. Elizabeth calls upon her personal astrologer, John Dee, and Giordano Bruno to solve the crimes. While Dee turns to a mysterious medium claiming knowledge of the murders, Bruno fears that something far more sinister is at work. But even as the climate of fear at the palace intensifies, the queen refuses to believe that the killer could be someone within her own court.

Bruno must play a dangerous game: can he allow the plot to progress far enough to give the queen the proof she needs without putting her, England, or his own life in danger?

In this utterly gripping and gorgeously written novel, S. J. Parris has proven herself the new master of the historical thriller.

PĒRKONLODE

Grāmatas pamatā ir K. Maklorija, Dž. Vitingema un autora scenārijs filmai.

Vai tiešām tā tagad būtu slavenā aģenta 007 ikdiena? Bet varbūt tikai klusums pirms pērkona grāviena?

Negaiss ir savilcies, neviena nemanīts. Laikā, kad gandrīz katrs, kas to iedomājas, pat savā piemājas dārziņā spēj uztaisīt atombumbu, teroristiem un naudas izspiedējiem paveras jaunas iespējas. Un viņi ir gatavi tās izmantot ar velnišķīgu izdomu un bez žēlastības.

Laika nav daudz, un uzdevumā, kas Bondam jāatrisina, ir gandrīz tikai nezināmie…

Par autoru

Jans Flemings dzimis 1908. gadā un mācījies ītonā. Neilgu laiku pavadījis Sandhērstā, viņš devās uz ārzemēm turpināt izglītību. 1931. gadā pēc nesekmīga mēģinājuma dabūt posteni Ārlietu ministrijā Flemings sāka strādāt Reitera ziņu aģentūrā. Otrā pasaules kara laikā viņš bija Admiralitātes Jūras izlūkdienesta direktora personīgais sekretārs un šajā laikā tika pa­augstināts no leitnanta līdz kapteiņa palīgam. Kara laika pieredze devusi Flemingam zināšanas par slepenajām operācijām.

Pēc kara viņš kļuva par Kemsley Neivspapers ārlietu menedžeri un Jamaikā uzbūvēja māju Zeltacs. Tur 42 gadu vecumā Flemings sarakstīja Casirio Royale - pirmo Džeimsa Bonda sērijas ro­mānu. Kad 1964. gadā Jans Flemings nomira, viņa sarakstītie četrpadsmit Bonda piedzīvojumi jau bija pārdoti vairāk nekā 40 miljonos eksemplāru un pasaulē bija radies sava veida Džeimsa Bonda kults.

Few recent thriller writers have excited the kind of critical praise that Daniel Silva has, with his novels featuring art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon.

Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in the hands of terrorists that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Gabriel Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist across a landscape drenched in generations of blood, along a trail that keeps turning in upon itself, until, finally, he can no longer be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the inevitable showdown comes, it's not Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction-for it is not his history alone that has been laid bare.

A knife-edged thriller of astonishing intricacy and feeling, filled with exhilarating prose, this is Daniel Silva's finest novel yet.

From the bestselling, Edgar Award — winning author of the “terrifically good” (The New York Times) Red Sparrow, a compulsively readable new novel about star-crossed Russian agent Dominika Egorova and CIA's Nate Nash in a desperate race to the finish.


Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, and crooks, and thugs of Putin’s Russia. What no one knows is that Dominika is working for the CIA as Washington’s most sensitive penetration of SVR and the Kremlin.

As she expertly dodges exposure, Dominika deals with a murderously psychotic boss; survives an Iranian assassination attempt; escapes a counterintelligence ambush; rescues an arrested agent and exfiltrates him out of Russia; and has a chilling midnight conversation in her nightgown with President Putin. Complicating these risks is the fact that Dominika is in love with her CIA handler, Nate Nash, and their lust is as dangerous as committing espionage in Moscow. And when a mole in the SVR finds Dominika’s name on a restricted list of sources, it is a virtual death sentence…

In a twisting, fast-moving adventure, ex-Navy Seal Nolan Kilkenny finds himself on a dangerous mission where he must recover a priceless artifact of human existence. The key to all life has suddenly become worth killing for…


Deep in the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, a remote NASA research lab rests atop a two-mile thick glacier, covering a vast underground water resevoir. But the true discovery isn’t the lake buried in ice — it’s what has been found within its boundaries. Something amazing. Something alive. And it may hold the answers to existence itself.

When the lab is attacked and its scientists murdered, Nolan Kilkenny realises that there is more than science at stake — there’s power, money, and what may be another step in evolution. Racing around the globe, Kilkenny must stop the machinations of a diabolical adversary and recover a priceless artifact of human existence — or die trying…

Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes. A born sceptic, he believes everything has a rational explanation. But when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned. Questions mount: why has the community been accused of Satanism? What has happened to their leader, Pastor Malachi Dove? And perhaps most important, why will no one discuss the strange apparition seen wandering the lonely beaches of Pig Island? Their confrontation, and its violent and bloody aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oaksey to question the nature of evil, and whether he might not be responsible for the terrible crime about to unfold. In her compulsive and haunting new novel, Mo Hayder dares her readers to face their fears head on and to look at what lurks beneath the surface of everyday normality. "Pig Island" is about the unspeakable things people can do to each other. Brace yourself for a terrifying read.

MARLOWE IS BACK – IN A CLASSIC THRILLER NO CHANDLER AFICIONADO WILL BE ABLE TO RESIST…

When Raymond Chandler died in 1959, he left behind an unfinished Philip Marlowe novel. Now, thirty years later,has become a complete work, thanks to the inspired writing of Robert B Parker, the foremost contemporary exponent of the Chandler style.

As the novel opens, Marlowe is married and bored. Naturally enough, he starts up a detective agency, and within hours he has alienated solid citizens, tangled with the cops and been hired by a local gangster to find a gambler who's skipped out on a debt.

And this is only the beginning. Before Marlowe brings in his man, he discovers another side of- a dark and dangerous place, where desperation makes men and women lead secret lives – and, if that fails, the only alternative is murder…

Nobody writes novels like Elmore Leonard, with his crackling dialogue, breathless pacing, and hilarious hard-luck, unfailingly human characters. In his sizzling new novel, the New York Times best selling author crosses continents to tell an adrenaline-charged story of crime and retribution-where double crosses become triple crosses, revenge is where you find it, and absolution is just around the corner.

Father Terry Dunn hears a lot of strange confessions. After all, he's the only priest for miles in the lingering aftermath of the worst massacre Rwanda has ever seen. And Fr. Terry, who has forty- seven bodies in his church that need burying, has just heard one confession too many. After exacting from them a chilling penance, Fr. Terry has to get out of Africa-pronto.

Now Terry is coming home to Detroit, where a five-year-old tax-fraud indictment is hanging over him. Is Terry Dunn really a priest? He certainly doesn't act like one. A fugitive felon on two continents, Terry is being pursued by a cigarette-smuggling cohort, who rolled over on Terry to save jail time-yet still demands his share of the money. But Debbie Dewey has other plans for Terry. She's just been sprung from a three-year fall at Saw- grass Correctional for aggravated assault…and is now trying to make it as a stand-up comic. Debbie and Terry hit it off beautifully. They have the same sense of humor and similar goals:

Both of them want to raise a whole lot of cash. Terry, for the children of Rwanda; Debbie, to score off a guy who owes her sixty-seven thousand dollars. It's Debbie who keeps prying, until she learns the bizarre truth about Terry; Debbie who sells him on going in together for a much bigger payoff than either could manage alone. That is unless the priest is working a con of his own.

With an unforgettable cast of oddballs and schemers-including a mob boss on trial, an unlikely assassin called Mutt, an ex-con con artist who dreams of doing stand-up, and a priest who may not be a priest- Pagan Babies is Elmore Leonard at his double-dealing best. In the hands of this master, the stakes are always life and death. Crime fiction doesn't get any better.

ELMORE LEONARD is the author of thirty-six novels, including such bestsellers as Be Cool, Cuba Libre, Out of Sight, Riding the Rap, Pronto, Rum Punch, Maximum Bob, Get Shorty, and numerous screenplays. He and his wife, Christine, live in a suburb of Detroit.

Rapp had traveled to New York City to decide the fate of a man. He had debated the wisdom of handling it himself. In addition to the inherent risk of getting caught, there was another, more pressing, problem. Just six days earlier a series of explosions had torn through Washington D.C., killing 185 and wounding hundreds. Three of the terrorists were still at large, and Rapp had been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. So far, however, the investigation had been painfully complicated and had yet to yield a single solid lead. The three men had up and disappeared, which suggested a level of sophistication that few of them thought the enemy capable of. The last thing Rapp expected, though, was that he would still be dealing with this other issue. In light of the attacks in Washington, he thought the fool would have come to his senses.

From TV broadcaster Lou Dobbs and award-winning author James O. Born comes Putin’s Gambit, an international financial thriller about a KGB plot to use a series of terrorist attacks as cover for a Russian military incursion into Estonia.

Adjusting to civilian life has not been easy for former Marine Derek Walsh. As he navigates a brutal job on Wall Street and a challenging romance, he wonders if he could be doing more with his life. When an inexplicable $200 million dollar money transfer is made on his computer, he is thrust into the world of international terror, and the global economy is knocked off its hinges.

On the other side of the Atlantic, a dangerous alliance has formed. Radical Islamists and Russian extremists have set the wheels in motion for Russia to assert its power in Europe. The US President has proven to be weak on foreign policy, the military is stretched too thin, and Vladimir Putin judges this to be the time for Russia to regain its Soviet Empire. Troops mass on the Estonian border, waiting for the order to move.

The FBI believes Walsh was involved in the money transfer, and a group of Russians are intent on killing him. As New Yorkers are outraged upon learning of the illegal money transfer, and the world economy crashes after a series of terrorist attacks, Walsh and his Marine buddies are the only ones that can keep the world from spinning off its axis.

It was the perfect retreat for a troubled company. No cell phones. No BlackBerrys. No cars. Just a luxurious, remote lodge surrounded by thousands of miles of wilderness.

All the top officers of the Hammond Aerospace Corporation are there. And one last-minute substitute – a junior executive named Jake Landry. He's a steady, modest, and taciturn guy with a gift for keeping his head down and a turbulent past he's trying to put behind him.

Jake's uncomfortable with all the power players he's been thrown in with, with all the swaggering and the posturing. The only person there he knows is the female CEO's assistant-his ex-girlfriend, Ali.

When a band of backwoods hunters crash the opening-night dinner, the executives suddenly find themselves held hostage by armed men who will do anything, to anyone, to get their hands on the largest ransom in history. Now, terrified and desperate and cut off from the rest of the world, the captives are at the mercy of hard men with guns who may not be what they seem.

The corporate big shots hadn't wanted Jake there. But now he's the only one who can save them.

Power Play is a non-stop, pulse-pounding, high-stakes thriller that will hold the reader riveted until the very last page.

In the spring of 1824 she arrives at her new husband's castle, Pendragon, on the coast of Ireland, only to find, amid the strange local folk and fascinating twists and turns of the vast keep, that there is more to her handsome husband than she was told before they wed. She's willing to dismiss the nasty rumor she'd heard about a girl he'd ruined – until she comes to suspect that she was brought to Pendragon for some sinister purpose…

El vértigo y la incontenible alegría que sintió al despertar aquella mañana eran para Evan Casher la mejor prueba de que estaba profundamente enamorado. Sí, sin duda aquél era el inicio de una nueva y feliz vida que compartiría junto a Carrie, la joven responsable de aquel cambio sustancial en él. Sin embargo, un solo instante puede cambiar toda una vida: una llamada de su madre, apremiándolo a reunirse con ella de inmediato, iba a provocar un vuelco radical en la hasta entonces tranquila existencia de Evan. Para su horror, descubrirá que su madre ha sido asesinada, y sin tiempo siquiera para asumirlo, a punto estará de ser asesinado él también. Sólo la súbita intervención de un misterioso personaje, aparentemente surgido de la nada, le permitirá salvar la vida, al menos por esta vez…

No obstante, esto es sólo el principio de un peligroso viaje sin retorno, durante el cual Evan descubrirá que su vida hasta entonces no ha sido más que una sucesión de engaños y artificios donde nadie era quien aparentaba ser: empezando por sus propios padres y por la adorable Carrie, a la que, como pronto averiguará, en realidad no conocia en absoluto. Perseguido por un implacable traficante de información convencido de que posee unos valiosos documentos, Evan deberá salvar su vida y descubrir la verdad, consciente de que, esta vez, no tendrá una segunda oportunidad.

обложка книги Past Due Past Due

Lashner’s latest, his fourth and longest, is another big and beautifully written saga, narrated by righteous, melancholy Philadelphia lawyer Victor Carl. Though the book is nominally a legal thriller, the Dickensian atmospherics command as much notice as the plot. A complex case connecting a recent murder to one 20 years ago counterpoints Victor’s hospital visits to his dying father, who is obsessed with unburdening himself of (mostly sad) stories from his youth. It’s a tribute to Lashner’s skill that these yarns hold their own against the more dramatic main story line. Victor has been retained by petty wiseguy Joey Parma (known as Joey Cheaps) about an unsolved murder a generation ago. The victim was young lawyer Tommy Greeley, and Joey Cheaps was one of two perps, though he was never caught. When Joey is found near the waterfront with his throat slashed, Victor knows his duty. This involves considerable legwork and clashes with an array of sharply drawn characters; Lashner is in his element depicting this rogue’s gallery, and Victor riffs philosophically on his encounters. Foremost among the shady figures is a femme fatale (improbably but appropriately) named Alura Straczynski, who sets her sights on Victor. It’s a move more strategic than romantic, but no less dangerous for him. The standard cover-up by men in high places waits at the end of Victor’s odyssey, but this novel, like Lashner’s previous ones, is all about the journey. Lashner’s writing – or is it Victor's character? – gains depth and richness with every installment.

Amazon.com Review

Jack Reacher, the taciturn ex-MP whose adventures in Lee Child's six previous solidly plotted, expertly paced thrillers have won a devoted fan base, returns in this explosive tale of an undercover operation set up by the FBI to rescue an agent investigating Zachary Beck, a reclusive tycoon believed to be a kingpin in the drug trade. The novel begins with a bang as Reacher rescues Beck's son from a staged kidnapping in order to get close to his father-and trace the connection between Beck and Quinn, a former army intelligence officer who tried to sell blueprints of a secret weapon to Iraq but was murdered before he could pull it off. Or so Reacher thinks, until he spots Quinn in the crowd at a concert in Boston. As usual, Child ratchets up the tension and keeps the reader in suspense until the last page, although his enigmatic hero hardly ever seems to break a sweat. In the tough guy tradition, Reacher and his creator are overdue for a breakout, and this muscular, well-written mystery might be the one.

From Publishers Weekly

The promo copy on the ARC of Child's new thriller proclaims, "We dare to make this claim: Lee Child is the best thriller writer you're probably not reading-yet." Hopefully the "six-figure" marketing campaign promised by Child's new publisher will make that statement obsolete, because readers will be hard-pressed to find a more engaging thriller this spring season. Child is a master of storytelling skills, not least the plot twist, and the opening chapter of this novel spins a doozy, as a high-octane, extremely violent action sequence sees Child hero Jack Reacher rescue a young man, 20-year-old Richard Beck, from an attempted kidnapping before the rug is pulled out from under the reader with the chapter's last line. The rest of the novel centers on the Beck family's isolated, heavily guarded estate on the Maine coast where Reacher takes Richard. Richard's father is suspected by Feds of being a major drug dealer and the kidnapper of another Fed, and also seems to have ties to a fiend who killed Reacher's lady 10 years before, someone Reacher thought he'd killed in turn, in a vengeance slaying. Tension runs high, then extremely high, as Reacher, ingratiating himself with the dealer and hired on as a bodyguard, pokes around the estate, looking for the kidnapped Fed and evading and/or disposing of in-house bad guys as they begin to suspect he's not who he seems. But then little in Child's novels is as it at first seems, and numerous further plot twists spark the story line. What makes the novel really zing, though, is Reacher's narration-a unique mix of the brainy and the brutal, of strategic thinking and explosive action, moral rumination and ruthless force, marking him as one of the most memorable heroes in contemporary thrillerdom. Any thriller fan who has yet to read Lee Child should start now.

Gabriel Allon has been hailed as the most compelling creation since 'Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond' (Rocky Mountain News). A man with a deep appreciation for all that is beautiful, Gabriel is also an angel of vengeance, an international operative who will stop at nothing to see justice done. Sometimes he must journey far in search of evil. And sometimes evil comes to him.

In a dangerous world, one extraordinary woman can mean the difference between life and death. . . .

 For Gabriel and his wife, Chiara, it was supposed to be the start of a pleasant weekend in London — a visit to a gallery in St. James's to authenticate a newly discovered painting by Titian, followed by a quiet lunch. But a pair of deadly bombings in Paris and Copenhagen has already marred this autumn day. And while walking toward Covent Garden, Gabriel notices a man he believes is about to carry out a third attack. Before Gabriel can draw his weapon, he is knocked to the pavement and can only watch as the nightmare unfolds.

 Haunted by his failure to stop the massacre of innocents, Gabriel returns to his isolated cottage on the cliffs of Cornwall, until a summons brings him to Washington and he is drawn into a confrontation with the new face of global terror. At the center of the threat is an American-born cleric in Yemen to whom Allah has granted 'a beautiful and seductive tongue.' A gifted deceiver, who was once a paid CIA asset, the mastermind is plotting a new wave of attacks.

 Gabriel and his team devise a daring plan to destroy the network of death from the inside, a gambit fraught with risk, both personal and professional. To succeed, Gabriel must reach into his violent past. A woman waits there — a reclusive heiress and art collector who can traverse the murky divide between Islam and the West. She is the daughter of an old enemy, a woman joined to Gabriel by a trail of blood. . . .

 Set against the disparate worlds of art and intelligence, Portrait of a Spy moves swiftly from the corridors of power in Washington to the glamorous auction houses of New York and London to the unforgiving landscape of the Saudi desert. Featuring a climax that will leave readers haunted long after they turn the final page, this deeply entertaining story is also a breathtaking portrait of courage in the face of unspeakable evil — and Daniel Silva's most extraordinary novel to date.

A TV and film executive, Staeger displays a real knack for creating cinematic scenes in his engaging first thriller. Cooper, a burnt-out former CIA operative living in a cheap bungalow on the British Virgin Island of Tortola, isn't too happy when "Cap'n Roy," the local police chief, dares to call him at 6 a.m. (Indeed, he gets out of bed and smashes the window in his front door with a baseball bat.) A badly burned, broken and tattooed male body has washed up on the beach, and Roy wants Cooper to dispose of it without disturbing the tourists. Given the corpse's unusual wounds, a shady expat coroner in the U.S. Virgin Islands agrees to conduct an autopsy. The tattoo entices Cooper into digging further, and he soon unearths evidence of a huge buildup of weapons in China. At the same time, Julie Laramie, a low-level agent working for the CIA, stumbles across the same Chinese plot, only to have her superiors threaten to ax her if anything leaks. It's only a matter of time-plus a few more highly visual action moments-before Cooper and Laramie have to secretly link up and trust each other to save the world.

NYPD homicide detective John Corey has moved to Long Island, restlessly recuperating from wounds received in the line of duty when he's hired to consult on the murder of Tom and Judy Gordon, biologists who worked on Plum Island, the site of animal disease research for the Department of Agriculture. Were the Gordons murdered because they'd stolen some valuable new vaccine, or even a dreaded virus? They'd obviously outspent their income. Had they been running drugs? Corey doesn't think so, although an ice-chest missing from their home points to something forbidden. He teams up with Beth Penrose, detective, working her first homicide and their visit to Plum Island reveals only that the FBI & CIA have sanitised the place. Then Corey falls in with Emma Whitehouse, an expert on Captain Kidd's lost treasure which is thought to be buried nearby… PLUM ISLAND is a thrilling novel from an author of consummate page-turning skill. This is the title that knocked John Grisham off the top of the US bestseller lists and held the No.1 spot for five weeks.

"On the way to a lunch meeting of her local book discussion group, the Uppity Women, small-town Southern librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden is shocked and dismayed to find her sister-in-law, Poppy, lying bloody and dead right outside her own back door. Poppy had her flaws, certainly – she and her husband were having trouble staying faithful to each other – but she didn't deserve to be so brutally murdered." Investigating a case like this is never easy, of course, given the gossipy atmosphere of any small town, what with Poppy and her husband's extramarital affairs, the local police detective, who also happens to be a former boyfriend of Roe's, and his seemingly unresolved feelings of Poppy, and the need to protect Poppy's family. But Roe is also coping with a burgeoning romantic relationship as well as the sudden appearance of her teenaged half brother. All in all, it's a lot for one woman to have on her plate, even one as together as Roe.

Putas Asesinas

En «Últimos atardeceres en la tierra» se narra un viaje a Acapulco que se convierte paulatinamente en un des-censo a los infiernos. En «Dentista» se cuenta la historia de un adolescente misterioso y dos adultos, ya de vuelta de todo, que lo observan desde un precipicio. En «Buba» se cuenta una historia de fútbol en tres partes: la de un futbolista sudamericano, la de un futbolista africano y la de uno español, y la sorprendente historia de su equipo, que bien podría ser el Barcelona. En «Carnet de baile» se dan 69 razones para no bailar con Pablo Neruda. En «Prefiguración de Lalo Cura», por el contrario, nos su-merge en una historia de narcotraficantes y directores de cine porno, y «Fotos» nos trae una vez más a Arturo Belano, el protagonista de Los detectives salvajes. Una deslumbrante colección de relatos de un autor que se ha convertido en una de las voces imprescindibles de la literatura en lengua española.

Contrastando el título, Putas asesinas, por un lado, con el estilo sobrio del libro, podría deducirse que su finalidad obedece a una razón de índole comercial. No obstante, si por otro lado, lo contrastamos con su contenido, sería improbable no hallarle justificación, ya que a lo largo de las más de doscientas páginas, el verdadero denominador común, en efecto, es la violencia, violencia sobre la que se nos advierte, desde las primeras líneas, `no se puede escapar, al menos no nosotros, los nacidos en Latinoamérica en la década de los cincuenta, los que rondábamos los veinte años cuando murió Salvador Allende`,

Como los grandes cuentistas `Hemingway, Maupassant – Bolaño relata más por lo que oculta que por lo que desvela (`Hay cosas que se pueden contar`, piensa M, `y hay cosas que no se pueden contar.`) Tras esta técnica del ocultamiento, suerte de camuflaje, se disimulan los verdaderos temas de la obra.

Quien ingrese en el mundo de Putas asesinas ratificará la capacidad creadora de Roberto Bolaño en su convicción de escritor que no teme enfrentar los grandes temas literarios, tan extensos, complejos y problemáticos. Así pues, en convivencia con la violencia a la que refiero, volvemos a toparnos con los amores secretos («Días de 1978», «Vagabundo en Francia y Bélgica»), la amistad («El Ojo Silva», «Dentista»), la muerte («El retorno», «Putas asesinas», «Prefiguración de Lalo Cura»), la soledad, la literatura, («Encuentro con Enrique Lihn», «Vagabundo en Francia y Bélgica», «Carnet de baile») el absurdo («Fotos»), tratados todos ellos bajo el aura del sueño latinoamericano, truncado y convertido en pesadilla. Muerto el boom y el realismo mágico, el tema de la pesadilla latinoamericana pervive en la nueva narrativa despojado de sustratos idílicos, provisto más bien de toda su crudeza e innegable inmundicia, la de la corrupción, el hambre, y la del exilio indefinido. Factor este último que a diferencia de los otros dos, contiene un aspecto positivo, el cosmopolitismo, de ahí que los problemas de B y otros protagonistas, en su mayoría chilenos exiliados en México D.F, Acapulco, Barcelona, París, no sean tales en tanto que exiliados, sino en tanto que hombres del mundo, puesto que derivan del desamparo y la confusión que, según Bataille, los burgueses no `pueden realmente disimular`.

Esto explica la ironía, la sensualidad, el humor mordaz, lo onírico, y otras vías de escape tan frecuentes en esta obra, productos o deshechos ` a propósito del fin de las ideologías- del escepticismo moderno, que tan pocas esperanzas le depara a la humanidad y al que son tan proclives los jóvenes de hoy.

El Ojo Silva tratará en vano de huir de la marginación en el Distrito Federal, donde sus compatriotas lo tachan de `invertido` porque `al menos de cintura para abajo` eran `exactamente igual que la gente de derecha que en aquel tiempo se enseñoreaba en Chile`. Encontrará otra violencia más tangible transformada en ineludible destino.

«Últimos atardeceres en la tierra» narra una peripecia vacacional padre ` hijo, y el mundo que, trasuntado en infierno, los divide en `unas horas que B llamaría aburrimiento, pero que ahora llamaría desastre, un desastre peculiar, un desastre que por encima de todo aleja a B de su padre`.

En «Días de 1978» se habla del rencor y de la suerte que corren los amores secretos en medio de una desgracia inminente. `Aquí debería acabar el relato`, señala el protagonista `pero la vida es un poco más dura que la literatura.`

Por otro lado «Vagabundo en Francia y Bélgica», – a mí parecer el cuento más logrado-, mezcla literatura y vida, en el sentido que los fetichismos que provoca en algunos la primera pueden revestir de pretextos la segunda y enmascarar así intenciones inconfesables. Tal vez se trate de deseos oscuros y del empecinamiento con que, en ocasiones, nos hacen ver lo que queremos, como la correspondencia en el objeto que los ocasiona. ¿Marchará B de París a Bruselas motivado por una publicación erudita o por una señal que andaba esperando? `¿Una señal de qué? Lo ignora. Una señal terrible en todo caso.`

«Prefiguración de Lalo Cura» recuerda la excelente película La virgen de los sicarios, no tanto por su tratamiento, aquí edulcorado con un humor corrosivo, sino por la realidad retratada, la del negocio del sexo y la droga en la Colombia de los cárteles.

«Buba» es un cuento sobre el absurdo en `la ciudad del sentido común`, sobre el humor resultante de esta paradoja. Y así como «Funes el memorioso», según Borges, `es una larga metáfora sobre el insomnio`, «Fotos» lo es sobre la inutilidad de la información despojada de formación.

Putas asesinas deja un sabor extraño, agridulce, múltiples imágenes de ciudades, un cúmulo de sensaciones y la vaga idea de que los cuentos se parecen entre sí, tanto como a los cuentos de Ramírez, personaje de «Dentista» y especie de prodigio literario: `el argumento daba un giro y se pulverizaba a sí mismo, el cuento se convertía en una historia sobre el fantasma de un pedagogo encerrado en una botella, y también en una historia sobre la libertad individual y aparecían otros personajes, dos merolicos más bien canallas, una veinteañera drogadicta, un coche inútil abandonado en la carretera que servía de casa a un tipo que leía un libro de Sade. Y todo en un cuento`.

Rapp had traveled to New York City to decide the fate of a man. He had debated the wisdom of handling it himself. In addition to the inherent risk of getting caught, there was another, more pressing, problem. Just six days earlier a series of explosions had torn through Washington D.C., killing 185 and wounding hundreds. Three of the terrorists were still at large, and Rapp had been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. So far, however, the investigation had been painfully complicated and had yet to yield a single solid lead. The three men had up and disappeared, which suggested a level of sophistication that few of them thought the enemy capable of. The last thing Rapp expected, though, was that he would still be dealing with this other issue. In light of the attacks in Washington, he thought the fool would have come to his senses.

Andaba yo por los seis años cuando mi padre decidió que podía prestarme sus libros sin temor a destrozos. Hasta ese momento, mi biblioteca básica se restringía al TBO, Mortadelos variados, y cualquier libro de categoría infantil-juvenil que me cayera como regalo en las fechas oportunas. Por desgracia (o quizá sería más justo decir por suerte. Sólo quizá), la economía familiar no estaba para seguir el ritmo de mis `papá, que me he acabado el tebeo, cómprame otro`. A grandes males, grandes remedios, y el viejo debió de pensar que a mayor número de páginas a mi disposición le incordiaría menos a menudo (se equivocaba, pero esto es otra historia).

En cualquier caso, poco tiempo después de tener carta blanca para leer cualquier cosa impresa que fuese capaz de alcanzar de las estanterías, me llamó la atención un libro cuya portada estaba dominada por el retrato de un señor de aspecto campechano bajo la palabra Papillón. Nada más. Sin tener a mano a nadie a quien preguntar de qué iba la cosa (yo estaba de vacaciones, el resto de la familia trabajando), lo cogí, me puse a hojearlo, y… De lo siguiente que me di cuenta fue de que habían pasado varias horas y me llamaban para cenar. No me había enterado. Yo estaba muy lejos. En las comisarías de la poli francesa. En un juicio. Deportado a la Guayana. Intentando salir de Barranquilla. Contando la secuencia de las olas en la Isla del Diablo para adivinar el momento adecuado para saltar y que la marea me llevase lejos sin destrozarme contra los acantilados. Dando paseos en la celda de castigo (`Un paso, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, media vuelta. Uno, dos…`).

Sería exagerado decir que entendí perfectamente todo lo que leía, problema que quedó resuelto en posteriores relecturas a lo largo de los años, pero me daba igual. Lo cierto es que fue una lectura con secuelas que llegan hasta hoy. No sólo en cuanto a influencias en el carácter, actitudes, aficiones y actividades, que las hubo, con el paso de los años también tuve mi propia ración de aventuras, con alguna que otra escapada incluida (aunque esto, también, es otra historia). Además, y más importante en cuanto al tema que nos ocupa, influyó en mi punto de vista a la hora de apreciar las lecturas.

Con el tiempo he acabado leyendo de todo y aprendido a disfrutar estilos muy diversos. Y cada vez sé darle más importancia al cómo están contadas las cosas, además de lo que se cuenta en sí. Pero hay algo sin lo que no puedo pasar, y es la sensación de que exista un fondo real en la historia y en los personajes. Da igual que sea ficción pura y me conste que todo es invención: si el autor no es capaz de convencerme de que me habla de alguien de carne y hueso (o metal o pseudópodos, tanto da, pero que parezca real) a quien le ocurren cosas reales, y que reacciona a ellas de forma creíble, es poco probable que disfrute de la lectura por bien escrito que esté el relato. No es de extrañar que de esta forma prefiera con mucho la vuelta al mundo de Manuel Leguineche antes que la de Phileas Fogg, aunque Manu tardase 81 días y perdiese la apuesta…

Por supuesto, no siempre, pero a menudo, es más sencillo hacer que suene convincente algo que ha pasado: basta con contar bien la historia y no hay que molestarse en inventarla. Charrière lo tenía fácil en ese aspecto, el argumento estaba escrito. Pero esto no quita mérito a una obra como Papillón, que resulta un modelo excelente de cómo describir lugares y personajes, narrar aventuras y tener al lector sujeto en un puño. La ventaja en atractivo que podría tener el `esto ocurrió realmente` es algo que se diluye con el tiempo, y la historia de un hombre castigado por un delito que no cometió y sus intentos de evasión del lugar donde está encerrado no era siquiera original cuando Charrière escribió su autobiografía.

Pero lo cuenta tan bien que lo vives como si estuvieras ahí. Y eso es lo importante.

Starred Review. When a zombie pandemic sweeps the land, a group of survivors hide out in an Upper East Side apartment building. As food supplies dwindle tensions rise, and their only salvation appears in the form of Mona, a mysterious girl who repels the zombies. Though Mona brings food to the survivors and a new sense of possibility, they wonder why she's impervious to the zombie hordes and endeavor to discover her secret. But their decision to put it to the test could shatter the safe, careful world they've built for themselves. Fingerman's latest is a spectacular entre in the zombie genre, largely due to his focus not on the undead but on the living, investigating our humanity and how easily we can turn on each other. But what truly distinguishes Pariah from other worthwhile entries is its humor in the face of bleak and extremely disturbing events (the sociopathic jock, Eddie, for instance, enjoys fishing for zombies in a manner that will turn readers' stomachs). The lack of resolution is unsettling, but what could be resolved in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead? Readers should shamble to the store for this one.

"Desaparecería, empezaría una nueva vida. Basta de presión. Basta de trabajar para gente a la que no respetaba. Una copita de vez en cuando. Tal vez incluso un cigarrillo al atardecer, contemplando la puesta de sol en la bahía. Joyce estaría con él. Bueno, a lo mejor. Como si no hubiera bastantes mujeres en el lugar al que se dirijía. Tal vez sería mejor que partiera él primero y se instalara. Luego, si le apetecía, ya la llamaría. Estaba esperando. Tenía dos pasaportes con nombres distintos por si acaso. Todo estaba claro; ningún problema.

Poderes Extraordinarios

En el mundo del espionaje, poderes extraordinarios es un término que se utiliza para referirse al permiso que se le otorga a un agente secreto de mucha confianza para que en circunstancias extremadamente especiales viole las órdenes de su empleador si es absolutamente necesario para cumplir el objetivo de una misión de suma importancia.

Poderes extraordinarios es una novela de suspenso escrita por un novelista catalogado como uno de los mejores escritores de thrillers del mundo, Joseph Finder, graduado en la universidad de Yale y Harvard.

La novela narra la historia de Ben Ellison, quien se encarga de investigar el accidente que terminó con la vida de su suegro, director de la CIA en el momento más exitoso de su carrera. Pero, aparentemente, no se trata de un accidente. Ben utilizará sus poderes de percepción extrasensorial para buscar al ex jefe de la KGB, el único que puede revelar la verdad. Pero mientras Ben lleva a cabo su investigación, un asesino le asecha.

Joseph Finder describe una conspiración concebida en el corazón de la inteligencia norteamericana. Una fortuna perdida, de origen soviético y habilidades parapsicológicas condimentan una trama muy atrapante.

El libro tiene un valor tremendo, es muy bueno. Además, su autor afirma que si bien ciertas cosas de la novela son parte de la ficción, la historia está basada en hechos históricos muy misteriosos y poco conocidos, pero existen registros muy interesantes que demuestran su veracidad. A medida que se avanza en la lectura, Joseph Finder presenta artículos periodísticos que respaldan su afirmación.

Se trata de una verdadera obra de arte, te la recomiendo.

Path Of The Assassin

From Publishers Weekly

If Thor's second international thriller had any more testosterone, it would grow hair. This follow-up to The Lions of Lucerne is loaded with explosions, gunfights, car chases and hairbreadth escapes as Secret Service agent Scot Harvath battles religious extremists and incompetent CIA spooks to save the world from WWIII. The Hand of God, an apparent Israeli terrorist group, is blowing up mosques in Saudi Arabia, assassinating Arab leaders and hijacking airplanes, all in an effort to provoke the Arab world into war with Israel. Harvath tries to derail the terrorist plot and avenge the deaths of buddies killed in the first book. Aided by Meg Cassidy, a beautiful Chicago public relations expert, Harvath chases the terrorist leader and a silver-eyed assassin from Hong Kong through Europe to North Africa. However, since Cassidy is the only one alive who has seen the face of the terrorist leader, the assassin chases them, too, trying to kill Cassidy before she can point him out. The story is one bloody episode after another, with a touch of romance and colorful turf battles between the CIA, FBI, Delta Force and Harvath himself. Thor stacks the deck in favor of his hero-Harvath never makes a mistake, and his view of how counterterrorism operations should be conducted is invariably proven correct. To top it off, he boasts about his remarkable talents. With its infallible hero, fetching sidekick and wicked bad guys, this international shoot 'em up sticks close to formula, but the well-choreographed action and thrills will keep readers engrossed.

From Publishers Weekly

Frasier (Sleep Tight, etc.) has perfected the art of making a reader's skin crawl, which is evident from this book's very first scene, in which a medical examiner discovers in the midst of an autopsy that the cadaver he's working on is really a live person. Set in Savannah, Ga., this exceptional thriller follows the hunt for the deranged person who's drugging people so that their minds remain wide awake even as their bodies resemble death. The creepiness factor increases when Frasier introduces homicide detective Elise Sandburg, who was abandoned in a cemetery as a baby and who knows Gullah spells and culture. Elise's partner, anti-social David Gould, is equally strange; his past holds secrets so dark he should be under psychiatric care. Formerly with the FBI, Gould currently lives in a rundown, foul-smelling apartment and sleeps with a prostitute who works for a voodoo priestess. As the two detectives follow leads to the priestess and the former college professor who researched the drug, they forge a tentative bond and come to terms with their own troubled pasts. Frasier's characters are not only fully realized, but fascinating to boot, and she evokes the dark, mystical side of Savannah with precision and skill. Appropriately, this unsettling tale closes with a grim children's rhyme and a spell for "Elise's Follow-Me-Boy Mojo."

Prince of Fire

Few recent thriller writers have excited the kind of critical praise that Daniel Silva has, with his novels featuring art restorer and sometime spy Gabriel Allon.

Now Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in the hands of terrorists that strips away his secrets, lays bare his history. Hastily recalled home to Israel, drawn once more into the heart of a service he had once forsaken, Gabriel Allon finds himself stalking an elusive master terrorist across a landscape drenched in generations of blood, along a trail that keeps turning in upon itself, until, finally, he can no longer be certain who is stalking whom. And when at last the inevitable showdown comes, it's not Gabriel alone who is threatened with destruction-for it is not his history alone that has been laid bare.

A knife-edged thriller of astonishing intricacy and feeling, filled with exhilarating prose, this is Daniel Silva's finest novel yet.

Pero el pasado regresa con inusitada brutalidad. La primera víctima es Grace Peltier, una estudiante que, al investigar sobre el fanatismo religioso en el estado de Maine, ha ahondado en la vida y el enigmático final de la comunidad de Aroostook.

Una madre hace saltar por los aires la tumba de su propio hijo. Éste murió durante el servicio militar, víctima de una macabra broma. En la tumba se habían esculpido las usuales palabras anónimas que se emplean en estos casos: «Caído en acto de servicio». Pero la madre no lo acepta. En la tumba de su hijo tiene que ser grabada, bien visible para todos, la verdad: «Asesinado por sus superiores».

Éste es el comienzo de una larga serie de desesperados intentos por parte de Rajel para que se haga justicia. Como en otras novelas de Batya Gur que no pertenecen a la serie policiaca de Michael Ohayon, por la que es conocida en España, se ponen al descubierto las contradicciones y el lado oscuro de la sociedad israelí.

Pegasus Descending

Detective Dave Robicheaux is facing the most painful and dangerous case of his career. A troubled young woman breezes into his hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She happens to be the daughter of Robicheaux's onetime best friend – a friend he witnessed gunned down in a bank robbery, a tragedy that forever changed Robicheaux's life.

In Pegasus Descending, James Lee Burke again explores psyches as much as evidence, and tries to make sense of human behavior as well as of his characters' crimes. Richly atmospheric, frightening in its sudden violence, and replete with the sort of puzzles only the best crime fiction creates, Burke's latest novel is an unforgettable roller coaster of passion, surprise, and regret.

The twists begin when Trish Klein – the only offspring of Robicheaux's Vietnam-era buddy – starts passing marked hundred-dollar bills in local casinos. Is she a good kid gone bad? A victim's child seeking revenge? A promiscuous beauty seducing everyone good within her grasp? And how does her behavior relate to the apparent suicide of another "good" girl, an ace student named Yvonne Darbonne, who apparently participated in a college frat orgy before her death?

Can Robicheaux make his peace with the demons that have haunted him since his friend's murder so many years ago? Can he figure out how a local mobster fits into all the schemes and deaths? Can Robicheaux's life be whole again when it has been shattered by so much tragedy?

Once again, Burke proves why he is the virtual poet laureate of southern Louisiana, and why his novels, especially those featuring Dave Robicheaux, stand as brilliant literature and entertainment for our time.

After a slow start, Staeger's solid second novel to feature semiretired CIA agent W. Cooper (after 2005's Painkiller) turns into a riveting and timely story revolving around a biological weapons threat. While Cooper explores a botched smuggling job involving stolen Mayan gold artifacts in the Virgin Islands that results in many deaths, Benjamin Achar, a package delivery-company driver, deliberately blows himself up in his garage near Fort Myers, Fla. The explosion releases a deadly virus that kills more than 100 people within two weeks. Enter CIA agent Julie Laramie to investigate the explosion and develop a team to track down other possible sleeper cells. Laramie recruits a reluctant Cooper, her former lover and partner, to assist, even as he continues to look into the killings related to the stolen Mayan artifacts. Superior characterization, in particular the relationship between Laramie and Cooper, which never stops the action, and clear, crisp writing make for a well-above-average thriller.

Rapp had traveled to New York City to decide the fate of a man. He had debated the wisdom of handling it himself. In addition to the inherent risk of getting caught, there was another, more pressing, problem. Just six days earlier a series of explosions had torn through Washington D.C., killing 185 and wounding hundreds. Three of the terrorists were still at large, and Rapp had been unofficially ordered to find them by any means necessary. So far, however, the investigation had been painfully complicated and had yet to yield a single solid lead. The three men had up and disappeared, which suggested a level of sophistication that few of them thought the enemy capable of. The last thing Rapp expected, though, was that he would still be dealing with this other issue. In light of the attacks in Washington, he thought the fool would have come to his senses.

Protect And Defend

New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn returns with his most explosive political thriller yet. A tour de force of action-packed suspense, Protect and Defend delivers an all-too-realistic and utterly compelling vision of nations navigating the minefield of international intrigue. A true heavyweight in the political thriller arena (Minneapolis Star Tribune), Vince Flynn has created a flesh-and-blood hero that readers can cheer for and a finger-blistering page-turner they won’t dare put down. In Protect and Defend, the action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches one of the most creative and daring espionage operations ever conceived. The attack leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in the middle of Iran ’s second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States for the attack and demands retribution. Privately, Iran ’s bombastic president wants much more. He wants America and Israel to pay for their aggression with blood. Enter Mitch Rapp, America ’s top counterterrorism operative. Used to employing deception, Rapp sees an opportunity where others see only Iranian reprisals that could leave thousands of Americans dead. Rapp convinces President Josh Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will further embarrass the Iranian government and push their country to the brink of revolution. As part of the plan, CIA director Irene Kennedy is dispatched to the region for a clandestine meeting with Azad Ashani, her Iranian counterpart. But Rapp isn’t the only one hatching plans. Iranian President Amatullah, has recruited Hezbollah master terrorist Imad Mukhtar to do his dirty work. For decades Mukhtar has acted as a surrogate for Iran, blazing a trail of death and destruction across the Middle East and beyond. When Kennedy’s meeting with Ashani goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given twenty-four hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.

обложка книги Pierced Pierced

From the internationally bestselling author of Burned (“Possibly the best $15 you’ll spend on a mystery this year.” —Bookpage) comes a taut and riveting tale of secrets, betrayals, and a dangerous quest for the truth.

If you find out who set me up, I’ll tell you what happened the day your son died. That is the message crime reporter Henning Juul—back at work after being terribly burned and scarred for life in a fire that killed his son—receives from a jailed extortionist named Tore Pulli who’s been convicted for a murder he claims he didn’t commit.

Truth has never meant more for Henning Juul. And when Pulli is found dead in his prison cell—an apparent suicide—Juul decides to dig deeper. He knows the murders Pulli was convicted of do not bear his signature, and he’s convinced that Pulli would never have taken his own life. Striking up a fragile partnership with Iver Gundersen, a journalist now living with Juul’s ex-wife, Juul uncovers an internal power struggle in the gang world, where the desire for serious money is destroying the traditional, honor-based hierarchy. Uncovering more questions than answers, Henning soon realizes that he has to find not one but several killers… ruthless murderers who have never been more dangerous than they are now.


A Convicted Killer: Despite always maintaining his innocence, Tori Pulli, once a powerful player on Oslo’s underground crime scene, has been found guilty of murder.

A Loose End: Scarred reporter, Henning Juul, is contacted by Pulli, who claims that if Henning can help clear his name he can give him details of who was responsible for the fire which killed his six-year-old son, Jonas.

A Double Threat: Desperate to continue his own search for justice, Henning realises that the information Pulli promises is life threatening, to both of them and to others. As events take a deadly turn, Henning finds himself on the trail of two killers for whom the stakes have never been higher…

The follow-up to Burned—the acclaimed debut novel, featuring Henning Juul—Pierced is a stunning, emotionally charged slice of Nordic-Noir

Every parent’s nightmare becomes reality for Kara Marshall when her daughter, Lindsay, vanishes from her bedroom during the night. The police suspect that the girl is just another moody teenage runaway, angry over leaving behind her school and friends because her family is moving. But Lindsay’s recent eerie claim — that someone invaded her room when the house was opened to prospective buyers — drives Kara to fear the worst: a nameless, faceless stalker has walked the halls of her home in search of more than a place to live.

Patrick Shields recognizes Kara’s pain — and carries plenty of his own since he lost his wife and two children in a devastating house fire. But more than grief draws Patrick and Kara together. He, too, senses the hand of a malevolent stranger in this tragedy. And as more people go missing from houses up for sale, Patrick’s suspicion, like Kara’s, blooms into horrified certainty.

Someone is trolling this peaceful community — undetected and undeterred — harvesting victims for a purpose no sane mind can fathom. Someone Kara and Patrick, alone and desperate, are determined to unmask. Someone who is even now watching, plotting, keeping a demented diary of unspeakable deeds… and waiting until the time is ripe for another fateful visit.

PREY

Thirty-two-year-old Angie Powell has always spoken her mind, but in the presence of Dare Callahan she nurses a simmering rage. After all, why give Dare the satisfaction of knowing he can push her buttons and push her to the edge?

Three years ago, Dare returned home to rural western Montana and opened a hunting business to rival Angie's. Complicating matters is the fact that Dare has asked Angie out (not once but twice) and has given her a gift of butterflies in the process. Angie has no patience for butterflies. They only lead to foolish decisions. And now the infuriatingly handsome Iraq war vet has siphoned away Angie's livelihood, forcing her to close up shop.

Before Angie is to leave town, she organizes one last trip into the wilderness with a client and his guest, who wants to bag a black bear. But the adrenaline-fueled adventure turns deadly when Angie witnesses a cold-blooded murder and finds herself on the wrong side of a loaded gun. Before the killer can tie up this attractive loose end, a bear comes crashing through the woods – changing the dark game completely.

Luckily, Dare is camping nearby and hears the shots. Forced together for their very survival, Angie and Dare must confront hard feelings, a blinding storm, and a growing attraction – while being stalked by a desperate killer and a ferocious five-hundred-pound beast. And neither will stop until they reach their prey.

After five long years in federal prison, Griff Burkett is a free man. But the disgraced Cowboys quarterback can never return to life as he knew it before he was caught cheating. In a place where football is practically a religion, Griff committed a cardinal sin, and no one is forgiving.

Foster Speakman, owner and CEO of SunSouth Airlines, and his wife, Laura, are a golden couple. Successful and wealthy, they lived a charmed life before fate cruelly intervened and denied them the one thing they wanted most – a child. It's said that money can't buy everything. But it can buy a disgraced football player fresh out of prison and out of prospects.

The job Griff agrees to do for the Speakmans demands secrecy. But he soon finds himself once again in the spotlight of suspicion. An unsolved murder comes back to haunt him in the form of his nemesis, Stanley Rodarte, who has made Griff's destruction his life's mission. While safeguarding his new enterprise, Griff must also protect those around him, especially Laura Speakman, from Rodarte's ruthlessness. Griff stands to gain the highest payoff he could ever imagine, but cashing in on it will require him to forfeit his only chance for redemption…and love.

Griff is now playing a high-stakes game, and at the final whistle, one player will be dead.

Play Dirty is Sandra Brown's wildest ride yet, with hairpin turns of plot all along the way. The clock is ticking down on a fallen football star, who lost everything because of the way he played the game. Now his future – his life – hinges on one last play.

The First Full Length Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers Novel from #1 Bestselling Author Janet Evanovich.

Turn on all the lights and check under your bed. Things are about to get spooky in Trenton, New Jersey. According to legend, the Jersey Devil prowls the Pine Barrens and soars above the treetops in the dark of night. As eerie as this might seem, there are things in the Barrens that are even more frightening and dangerous. And there are monkeys. Lots of monkeys. Wulf Grimoire is a world wanderer and an opportunist who can kill without remorse and disappear like smoke. He’s chosen Martin Munch, boy genius, as his new business partner, and he’s chosen the Barrens as his new playground. Munch received his doctorate degree in quantum physics when he was twenty-two. He’s now twenty-four, and while his brain is large, his body hasn’t made it out of the boys’ department at Macy’s. Anyone who says good things come in small packages hasn’t met Munch. Wulf Grimoire is looking for world domination. Martin Munch would be happy if he could just get a woman naked and tied to a tree. Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has Munch on her most-wanted list for failure to appear in court. Plum is the all-American girl stuck in an uncomfortable job, succeeding on luck and tenacity. Usually she gets her man. This time she gets a monkey. She also gets a big guy named Diesel. Diesel pops in and out of Plum ’s life like birthday cake – delicious to look at and taste, not especially healthy as a steady diet, gone by the end of the week if not sooner. He’s an ьber bounty hunter with special skills when it comes to tracking men and pleasing women. He’s after Grimoire, and now he’s also after Munch. And if truth were told, he wouldn’t mind setting Stephanie Plum in his crosshairs. Diesel and Plum hunt down Munch and Grimoire, following them into the Barrens, surviving cranberry bogs, the Jersey Devil, a hair-raising experience, sand in their underwear, and, of course… monkeys.

A terrifying truth is buried at the juncture where lethal greed and unassailable power converge.

The dead woman was an artist recently arrived from Washington State, cruelly cut down in the early stages of a promising career. Now all that remains of Rochelle Baxter lies on a cold slab in the Cochise County morgue, and Sheriff Joanna Brady knows that murder has once again infected her small desert community.

But there is more to this homicide than initially meets the eye – and more to the victim, who died while supposedly under the conscientious protection of the government.

A big-city legal establishment has no faith in the abilities of a small-town sheriff, let alone a female sheriff. Instructed to swallow her indignation, Joanna awaits the arrival of the “help” Washington ’s attorney general is sending her: the newest member of the state’s Special Homicide Investigation team – a man named Beaumont.

Bisbee, Arizona, is the last place J.P. Beaumont wants to be. The ghosts of a painful past are too numerous there, and his reluctant “partner,” Sheriff Brady, resents his intrusion and cannot help but make her feelings known. But the road they are forced to travel together is taking some unexpected turns, running two dedicated servants of the law headfirst into the impenetrable stone walls of a shocking conspiracy of silence. For Brady and Beaumont ’s hunt is disturbing a very deadly nest of rattlers, and suddenly trust is the only option they have.

On their own in the Arizona desert, they know death can be cold and quick. And nobody is watching their backs here… they’ll have to watch each other’s.

Now some of fantasy's finest writers have taken on the task of opening Pandora's closet. It is naturally chock full of an assortment of items, including a ring that can bring its wearer infinite health, a special helmet found in the most unlikely of places, a mysterious box that holds a legendary piece of cloth, and a red hoodie that transforms a woman's world. These stories are of items claimed by people, but only at their own peril. After indulging in these stories, readers will certainly look at their own closets in a whole new light.

Duclos is there to meet him-and four men are there to meet Duclos. Sherman has to recognize that the gang of heroin smugglers he was out to smash know his movements as well as he does. Backed by Amsterdam's police, Sherman tries to outwit the genius behind the drug ring, a master-puppeteer who knows how to manipulate the underworld so that his own tracks are obliterated at every step.

The action moves from the back streets of Amsterdam to a barge on the Zuider Zee, from an island whose inhabitants specialize in making costumed puppets, to the crypt of a missionary sect's church. Not until the very last minute is the master-puppeteer revealed — and by then he is in possession of a puppet of such value and beauty that it taxes all Sherman's ingenuity and courage to prevent this-one, too, from swinging on a grisly chain . . .

SEATTLE, 2040. The Space Needle lies crumpled. Veiled women hurry through the busy streets. Alcohol is outlawed, replaced by Jihad Cola, and mosques dot the skyline. New York and Washington, D.C., are nuclear wastelands. Phoenix is abandoned, Chicago the site of a civil war battle. At the edges of the empire, Islamic and Christian forces fight for control of a very different United States.

Enormous in scope and brilliantly imagined, Prayers for the Assassin promises to be the powerhouse read of the year. Burning with cinematic violence, fiendish betrayal, and global intrigue, Robert Ferrigno's sensational thriller asks: What would happen to America if the terrorists won?

After simultaneous suitcase-nuke attacks destroy New York, Washington, D.C., and Mecca – attacks blamed on Israel – a civil war breaks out. An uneasy truce leaves the nation divided between an Islamic republic with its capital in Seattle, and the Christian Bible Belt in the old South. In this frightening future there are still Super Bowls and Academy Awards, but calls to Muslim prayer echo in the streets and terror is everywhere. Freedom is controlled by the state, paranoia rules, and rebels plot to regain free will…

One of the most courageous is the beautiful young historian Sarah Dougan, who uncovers shocking evidence that the nuclear attacks might not have been planned by Israel, evidence that, if true, will destabilize the nation. When Sarah suddenly goes missing, the security chief of the Islamic republic calls upon Rakkim Epps, her secret lover and a former elite warrior, to find her – no matter what the risk.

But as Rakkim searches for Sarah, he is tracked by Darwin, a brilliant psychopathic killer trained in the same secretive unit as Rakkim. To survive, Rakkim must become Darwin's assassin – a most forbidding challenge. A bloody, nerve-racking chase takes them through the looking-glass world of the Islamic States of America, and culminates dramatically as Rakkim and Sarah battle to expose the truth to the entire world.

Can the couple outrun Darwin? Who is really behind the nuke attacks? Will Sarah and Rakkim stay alive long enough to deliver the truth? Does a nation divided have a prayer?

Robert Ferrigno's Prayers for the Assassin shows the novelist at the height of his powers, and delivers a masterful, unforgettable read.

The brutal murder of Dr. Azor Sparks in an alley behind a restaurant is greeted with public outrage and a demand for swift, sure justice. But the investigation into the well-known surgeon's death is raising too many questions and providing too few answers for homicide detective Lieutenant Peter Decker.

Why, for example, would the family of a man so beloved respond to his slaying with more surprise than grief? And what linked a celebrated doctor with strict fundamentalist beliefs to a gang of outlaw bikers? But the most unsettling connection of all is the one that ties the tormented Sparks family to Peter Decker's own – and the secrets shared by a renegade Catholic priest…and Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus.

Following A Deeper Sleep, her most successful Kate Shugak novel to date, the Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling thriller writer Dana Stabenow delivers a nail-biting, all-too-real novel of international suspense.

A terrorist with a most personal grudge, an FBI analyst challenged to be three steps ahead of the intelligence, a Coast Guard captain assigned to keep watch on that very American of symbols from the water, an astronaut who takes her job very seriously-the paths of all of these characters converge on one clear morning in Florida. NASA is preparing to launch the space shuttle, this time with a high-paying visitor on board as a guest, and the FBI and the Coast Guard are doing everything they can to help the launch go off without a hitch. But one Pakistani man with a bottomless personal grudge and the commitment of many zealous men behind him is determined to strike back at the most visible target he can find.

Once again Dana Stabenow, who researched this gripping scenario by spending weeks living on board a Coast Guard cutter as it conducted its mission in the Caribbean, delivers an action-driven thriller with an ingenious, frightening, straight-from-the-headlines plot, certain to be her next bestseller.

Terrible secrets lead basketball star David Baskin to fake his death while honeymooning in the tropics in this manipulative but otherwise engaging first novel. His bereaved bride, supermodel Laura Ayars, not sure that David's drowning was accidental, starts sleuthing-which proves dangerous when somebody begins killing people who may have the answers she wants. Meanwhile, David, fitted out with a new identity and appearance, tries out for his original team, the Boston Celtics, and ''replaces'' himself at his former position. Why he has faked his death is explained in the story's penultimate surprise. But why he risks playing in front of fans who know his style is never addressed. Crucial coincidences abound, such as the love affair of David's brother and Laura's sister-adults who, as kids 30 years before, just happen to have witnessed their parents' worst sins. Coben manufactures tension primarily by keeping key details out of his narrative, a method that eventually wears thin. The resolution comes as a relief, with less of a bang than its buildup promises.

Library Journal

Despite its fundamental implausibility, this is an engrossing suspense novel. A star pro basketball player, David Baskin, disappears on his honeymoon, and a mutilated, drowned body is assumed to be his. But strange things are happening to his beautiful widow. And a few months later, a total unknown startles the basketball world with a highly professional style of play exactly like Baskin's. The mystery has its origins in a murder 30 years earlier. The reader's suspicions about what actually happened to Baskin, and about the identity of the murderer, shift as layers of lies are stripped away. Despite the basketball, this is primarily great romantic suspense.- Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Univ. Lib., Davenport, Ia.

From Publishers Weekly

PI Kinsey Millhone's trademark dry sense of humor is largely absent in the first half of the 15th book in this justifiably popular series, though it resurfaces as the suspense finally begins to build in the second half. In the bleak November of 1986, Kinsey looks into the disappearance of Dr. Dowan Purcell, who's been missing for nine weeks. Dr. Purcell is an elderly physician who runs a nursing home that's being investigated for Medicare fraud. His ex-wife, Fiona, hires Kinsey when it seems as though the police have given up on the search. Fiona thinks that he could be simply hiding out somewhere, especially since he's pulled a disappearance stunt twice before. However, Purcell's current wife, Crystal, believes that he may be dead. Kinsey is dubious about finding any new leads after so much time has elapsed. She's also worried about having to move out of the office space she now occupies in the suite owned by her lawyer, and between her interviews with suspects she tries to rent a new office from a pair of brothers whose mysterious background begins to make her suspicious. Grafton's Santa Teresa seems more like Ross Macdonald's town of the same name than ever before, with dysfunctional families everywhere jostling for the private eye's attention. The novel has a hard-edged, wintry ambience, echoed in Fiona Purcell's obsession with angular art deco furniture and architecture. Unfortunately, Grafton's evocation of the noir crime novels and styles of the 1940s, although atmospheric, doesn't make up for a lack of suspense and lackluster characters. (June 4)Forecast: With a 600,000-copy first printing and a national author tour, this Literary Guild Main Selection is sure to shoot well up the bestseller lists.

Soon, hard-pressed NATO troops are digging into the frozen Siberian soil to face the onslaught of invading Chinese forces. The world stands poised on the brink of apocalypse…

Terrorism, civil war, anarchy, and a titanic clash of military might and political ideologies on the subarctic Eurasian plain form the sweeping global setting against which a brilliantly portrayed cast of characters achieve their dramatic destinies in Eric L.

EOD — "It's a lot like brain surgery, except if we screw up the patient detonates…. Oh yeah, and we do it underwater."

— A Navy EOD Technician


The Sailors of the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community "perform under pressure" in the hazardous job of bomb disposal, often deep beneath the sea… alone.

An EOD Technician must have the brains of an engineer, the hands of a surgeon, and the courage of a martyr. In the U.S. Navy, carrier flight operations only occur under the watchful eye of EOD Techs ready to respond to ordnance accidents. U.S. Marines assault enemy beachheads only after EOD Techs clear the littoral seas and landing zones of mines. The U.S. Secret Service even relies on military bomb squads to protect the President and visiting foreign dignitaries. Perhaps the best testimony of their value is that when the Navy needs to place a limpet mine under an enemy ship it tasks the Navy SEALs, but to respond to such an attack — the Navy summons EOD.

Proximity highlights the exciting work of one EOD detachment as they become enmeshed in the efforts of a terrorist coalition operating both in Europe and the United States. Lieutenant "Jazz" Jascinski and the men of Detachment Four become the key to helping the FBI apprehend these terrorists — until their unique skills place them under suspicion. To protect themselves, the Techs must race to find the culprits before they become the next victims…

From the bestselling, Edgar Award — winning author of the “terrifically good” (The New York Times) Red Sparrow, a compulsively readable new novel about star-crossed Russian agent Dominika Egorova and CIA's Nate Nash in a desperate race to the finish.


Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service (SVR) has returned from the West to Moscow. She despises the men she serves, the oligarchs, and crooks, and thugs of Putin’s Russia. What no one knows is that Dominika is working for the CIA as Washington’s most sensitive penetration of SVR and the Kremlin.

As she expertly dodges exposure, Dominika deals with a murderously psychotic boss; survives an Iranian assassination attempt; escapes a counterintelligence ambush; rescues an arrested agent and exfiltrates him out of Russia; and has a chilling midnight conversation in her nightgown with President Putin. Complicating these risks is the fact that Dominika is in love with her CIA handler, Nate Nash, and their lust is as dangerous as committing espionage in Moscow. And when a mole in the SVR finds Dominika’s name on a restricted list of sources, it is a virtual death sentence…

Paths of Courage breaks away from the confines of many modern espionage novels, which are often centred around European and Middle Eastern cities, bringing the danger, drama and action across the world to North Korea and into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

The story follows British Intelligence, who use their spy networks in Seoul and Moscow to establish that the North Koreans are manufacturing a lethal super virus. They also learn of a planned attack on a major western city, to be carried out by terrorists using a hijacked Russian nuclear submarine. Are these two strands of intelligence linked?

MI6 send a small team of specialists into North Korea with orders to verify if a virus does exist. Led by Frank Ryder, an ex-SAS operative, who is accompanied by Dr. Grace Seymour, an army virologist, the team search the remote central highlands to find the manufacturing facility.

Meanwhile, the British Navy’s ‘state-of-the-art’ nuclear submarine, HMS Ambush, is ordered to find and destroy the hijacked Russian submarine. The crew must endure weeks of cat-and-mouse searching, but will they succeed in finding the rogue submarine before a missile and its deadly warhead are unleashed towards an unsuspecting city?

Mike Woodhams’ novel was inspired by the controntation between nations. “My travels opened my eyes to the darker side of human nature and to the frailness of our existence, in particular the greed and selfishness of many of the leading nations,” he explains. “I wanted to create a simplistic theme that was objective, brutal, realistic and in context with the modern world.”

Washington fears the bombs are timed to explode in major American cities before the election. They call on intelligence expert Ray Bowman to prevent the attack. With the help of a Mossad agent and a female South African intelligence officer, he follows a trail across the world to track down the missing nukes. Along the way, he discovers that the people who now control the bombs intend to do something much more devastating than expected, something that it will make nuking a few cities look like a mild attack.


Drawing on his decades of experience at the highest levels of national security, Richard A. Clarke's Pinnacle Event — the Pentagon code for a nuclear threat — is a gripping international thriller told from the rare vantage point of a true Washington insider.

March 1943, at the height of World War II, a newly commissioned B-17 bomber is nearing the west coast of Greenland.

Flown by a carefully picked crew, it is carrying a piece of vital secret cargo that under no circumstances can be allowed to fall into the hands of the enemy.

Caught by an unexpected and fearfully violent Arctic storm, the pilot is forced to crash-land on the vast, awesome Greenland Ice Cap. The crew is saved, but the plane itself and the ultrasensitive cargo it is carrying are swallowed by another great storm and disappear.

Three decades later Lieutenant Scott Ferguson, the pilot of a ski-equipped Air Force C-130, discovers an unknown B-17 rigidly frozen on an all-but-unexplored section of the ice cap. Ferguson is bound for Thule Air Base, named for Ultima Thule — the end of the earth. Only 960 miles from the North Pole, in the extreme Arctic, Thule is one of the most exotic places on earth — and one of the most remote. It sits squarely on the bomber and missile route from the Soviet Union to the United States and Canada.

When he reports his find, Ferguson receives sudden orders from the Pentagon: go back to the frozen bomber, get inside, and recover, if possible, a certain piece of cargo.

This, the first book about Thule and the people who are stationed there, is filled with the vastness, the danger, and the fascination of the very high Arctic. And, from the first page to the last, it is a story about aircraft and the men who fly them. When Lieutenant Ferguson and his crew set about to recover the yellow color-coded crate from the wreck of the B-17, they open the door to more adventure and extraordinary flying than even Ferguson's lively imagination can conceive. For that was not an ordinary B-17…

The explosive new novella by Scott Mariani


PASSENGER 13


FIVE YEARS BEFORE THE EVENTS OF THE ALCHEMIST’S SECRET


June, 2003. The world is still on fire in the aftermath of 9/11. Fresh from the bloody conflict of the Second Gulf War, SAS soldier Ben Hope returns to Britain for some R&R leave, only to find himself embroiled in an intrigue deadlier than anything he’s encountered on the battlefields of Iraq.

When a passenger aircraft piloted by Ben’s former army comrade Nick Chapman crashed off the Cayman Islands killing everyone on board, the official line was that Chapman committed suicide. But things don’t add up, and Ben’s old friend is barely in his grave before unfolding events point to something far bigger and more sinister going on. What did Chapman witness that powerful forces would do anything to suppress? Who was the mysterious passenger 13 on board the doomed flight?

Following the trail of clues from the rugged Welsh borders to the Caribbean paradise that Chapman had made his home, Ben quickly discovers that some kinds of knowledge will get you killed — fast. Knowledge that threatens to unmask a global conspiracy of shocking proportions and change the way we view the world… and its masterminds have just made Ben Hope their principal target.

Jammer Davis has spent most of his life investigating aircraft accidents. When a small regional jet disappears over the jungles of Colombia, it is a tragedy like dozens of others he has seen… but for one terrible detail — his young daughter, who was enroute to a semester abroad in South America, is listed on the passenger manifest.

A distraught Davis rushes to Bogotá and bulls his way into the inquiry. When the wreckage is located, it becomes clear the crash was unsurvivable. As the investigation gains momentum, the facts go astray. Two pilots had been shot before the crash, along with one passenger. The possibility of a hijacking looms large as the search begins to focus on two passengers who boarded the plane, yet their remains cannot be found.

Davis uncovers an even more sinister plot behind the entire disaster — one that goes to the highest levels of the United States government. But how could it possibly involve his daughter?

It goes unexpectedly well, and as a kind of reward he’s given an easy one: he’s to investigate the case of James Holden, a middle-aged Englishman living in Dubai, who appears able to predict terrorist attacks.

It should be simple — a break in the sun and a couple of days’ work at most — but, almost as soon as he arrives in Dubai, he is diverted to Bahrain.

Then it all starts getting complicated.

Who is the secretive patient in the Manama hospital?

Who has slaughtered a dozen people at a remote stable in Saudi Arabia just to steal one horse?

And why has a US State Department jet carrying a specialist CIA team been diverted to Cairo?

But, behind the scenes, an even more complex scheme is being executed and Richter is in a race against time to prevent a catastrophic terrorist attack on the city of Dubai itself.

One day in the not-too-distant future, Pete Hamlin regains consciousness deep inside the nuclear submarine Polaris. He's got a gun in his hand, a fire raging outside his door, and a dead man at his feet. Soon Pete discovers that the ship is in the middle of a mutiny — and he has no idea what side he's on.

He finds the ship is now commanded by the beautiful but volatile Hana Moody. She's locked the former captain, Finn McCallister, inside a steel trunk, accusing him of treason. Frank Holmes is Moody's loyalist, an imposing physical presence who shares Moody's unquestioning devotion to the cause of the Alliance. The ship's feckless doctor hovers in the background, unable to help Pete find out the truth about the Polaris. And outside the ship's steel hull lurks another submarine, yet another presence that might be either friend or deadly foe.

To save himself and discover the truth, Pete must journey with Polaris back to a forlorn piece of rock in the middle of a dangerous ocean: Eris Island. To get there he must fight murderous shipmates, a swarm of bomb-dropping drones, and a plague that is attacking everyone on both sides of a battle that Pete barely understands. Only on Eris Island does Hamlin finally learn the truth.

By the 2020s, America was no longer a world Superpower. The military had been cut to a barebones level, and while the U.S. was focused internally, the door opened for new powers to emerge on the world stage. In the wake of this power vacuum, China and Russia began to flex their military muscles and expand their dominance in the world. The border of India and Pakistan had long been one of the most precarious ticking time bombs waiting to explode, and when a scheme to agitate the tensions in that region is successful, it opened the door for powerful men to begin consolidating authority and start building an Islamic Caliphate. With Europe also weakened by economic decline, the United States was in serious danger from this new threat. In these hazardous times, America was in need of a leader. Henry Stein, a new kind of leader, built a new political party that is neither Republican nor Democrat to lead the charge to bring the country back from the brink. His unconventional style was just what the U.S. needed in order to deal with the changing world balance of power and a worldwide Great Depression. As conflicts near and far began to plague the planet, would President Stein be able to prevent a third world war?

The U.S. and its Western allies come under a diabolical Russian cyber warfare attack in this action-packed military techno-thriller from New York Times bestselling master Dale Brown.


In a top-secret location deep in the Ural Mountains, Russian President Gennadiy Gryzlov has built his nation’s most dangerous weapon since the atomic bomb — a fearsome tool to gain superiority in Russia’s long-running battle with the West. From inside Perun Aerie — an intricate network of underground tunnels and chambers that is the heart of the Russian cyber warfare program — he is launching a carefully plotted series of attacks on an unsuspecting U.S. and its European allies.

The first strike targets Warsaw, Poland, where Russian malware wipes out the records of nearly every Polish bank account, imploding the country’s financial system and panicking the rest of Europe. When Stacy Anne Barbeau, the besieged American president, fails to effectively combat the Russian threat, Brad McLanahan, on some well-earned R&R with his new Polish girlfriend, Major Nadia Rozek, is called back to duty.

As the Russians’ deadly tactics escalate — including full-scale assaults on Europe’s power grid and the remote hijacking of a commercial airliner that kills hundreds of civilians — McLanahan and his Scion team kick into gear, arming themselves with the most advanced technological weaponry for the epic struggle ahead. A patriot in the mold of his father, the late general Patrick McLanahan, Brad knows firsthand the price of freedom.

With the world’s fate hanging in the balance, will Scion succeed in turning back Gryzlov before he can realize his terrifying ambition to conquer the globe? And what will the toll of victory be?

Furthermore, his sole really outstanding clue, a mysterious fish scale, had disappeared into the recesses of the FBI Crime Lab. But the old fortune-teller was sending him into the bayou, down in the land of authentic Cajun food, on the track of a mysterious pimp with the admonition to “watch for the Princess.” Or die.

Barbara and Kelly were heading to a rendezvous that might be fate and might reveal the hand of God. There was more cooking in the swamps than jambalaya. Unknown to either, the mystery of the Bayou Ripper had Special Circumstances.

El verano llega a su fin en una pequeña localidad rural de Noruega. Sus habitantes, acostumbrados a la tranquilidad de sus urbanizaciones rodeadas de bosques y lagos, no están preparados para lo que se avecina. Pequeños y terribles malentendidos comienzan a sucederse: llamadas de hospitales anunciando accidentes que no han ocurrido, periódicos que publican esquelas de ancianos que siguen vivos… presagios de que algo terrible está a punto de ocurrir. El mismo día que comienza todo, el inspector de policía Sejer recibe una extraña nota: «El infierno empieza ahora». Él y su compañero, el detective Jacob Skarre, se ponen manos a la obra para descubrir quién está detrás de tanta confusión. Probablemente ni siquiera el artífice de todo ello sea capaz de prever la marea de violencia que está a punto de desbordarse, porque, ¿quién sabe de qué es capaz la gente cuando ha perdido la sensación de seguridad?

En Presagios, Karin Fossum consigue un retrato fascinante de una pequeña comunidad que se tambalea al borde del precipicio.

обложка книги Portobello Portobello

The Portobello area of West London has a rich personality – vibrant, brilliant in colour, noisy, with graffiti that approach art, bizarre and splendid. An indefinable edge to it adds a spice of danger. There is nothing safe about Portobello…

Eugene Wren inherited an art gallery from his father near an arcade that now sells cashmere, handmade soaps and children's clothes. But he decided to move to a more upmarket site in Kensington Church Street. Eugene was fifty, with prematurely white hair. He was, perhaps, too secretive for his own good. He also had an addictive personality. But he had cut back radically on his alcohol consumption and had given up cigarettes. Which was just as well, considering he was going out with a doctor. For all his good intentions, though, there was something he didn't want her to know about…

On a shopping trip one day, Eugene, quite by chance, came across an envelope containing money. He picked it up. For some reason, rather than report the matter to the police, he wrote a note and stuck it up on lamppost near his house:

'Found in Chepstow Villas, a sum of money between eighty and a hundred and sixty pounds. Anyone who has lost such a sum should apply to the phone number below.'

This note would link the lives of a number of very different people – each with their obsessions, problems, dreams and despairs. And through it all the hectic life of Portobello would bustle on.

As volunteers clean up after a huge outdoor rock concert in Yorkshire in 1969, they discover the body of a young woman wrapped in a sleeping bag. She has been brutally murdered. The detective assigned to the case, Stanley Chadwick, is a hard-headed, strait-laced veteran of the Second World War. He could not have less in common with – or less regard for – young, disrespectful, long-haired hippies, smoking marijuana and listening to the pulsing sounds of rock and roll. But he has a murder to solve, and it looks as if the victim was somehow associated with the up-and-coming psychedelic pastoral band the Mad Hatters. In the present, Inspector Alan Banks is investigating the murder of a freelance music journalist, who was working on a feature about the Mad Hatters for “MOJO” magazine. This is not the first time that the Mad Hatters, now aging rock superstars, have been brushed by tragedy. Banks finds he has to delve into the past to find out exactly what hornet’s nest the journalist inadvertently stirred up.

En la gran mansión escocesa de Westerbrae, una compañía teatral londinense se reúne para la lectura de una controvertida nueva obra. Pero, al finalizar la velada, la bella dramaturga aparece brutalmente asesinada en su cama, y el inspector Thomas Lynley se ve inmediatamente enredado en un crimen cuyo origen está en las complicadas obligaciones del amor y las consecuencias de la traición.

Con la finalidad de alejar a la prensa el máximo tiempo posible, dada la notoriedad de los principales sospechosos, Lynley y la sargento Havers viajan hacia el aislado lugar. Entre sus sospechosos: el más poderoso productor teatral de Gran Bretaña, dos de las estrellas más queridas del país, y la mujer a la que Lynley ama.

Para Lynley, la investigación requiere toda la delicadeza que pueda reunir, y ello le forzará a enfrentarse también con un dilema personal. Presente en Westerbrae la noche del asesinato estaba Helen Clyde, una mujer con la cual Lynley está compartiendo una complicada relación y una amistad duradera que ha evolucionado hacia el amor. El hecho de que ella ocupara la habitación contigua a la de la víctima, no puede ser pasado por alto. El hecho de que ella no la ocupara sola, no puede ser ignorado.

Luchando para superar los celos que amenazan con enturbiar su juicio y las emociones que podrían llevarle a cometer errores fatales, Lynley se descubre a sí mismo envuelto en escándalos familiares, feroces rivalidades teatrales, y terribles revelaciones. Cuando la vida ocupe más poderosamente sus pensamientos que la muerte, la cuestión será si podrá atravesar la peligrosa línea que existe entre la fría objetividad de un investigador profesional y la furia confusa de un enamorado.

En la mansión, los motivos se ocultan profundamente. Indignada por lo que ella ve como encubrimiento de un asesino de alta categoría social, la sargento Bárbara Havers, arriesgando su carrera y cuestionando su profunda lealtad profesional, empieza por su cuenta una búsqueda de los secretos que guardan no sólo una familia, sino dos, y que se mantienen en el silencio.

Edgar Award-winner Bruce DeSilva returns with Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter for a dying newspaper in Providence, Rhode Island. Mulligan knows every street and alley, every priest and prostitute, every cop and street thug. He knows the mobsters and politicians – who are pretty much one and the same.

Inspired by a true story, Providence Rag finds Mulligan, his pal Mason, and the newspaper they both work for at an ethical crossroad. The youngest serial killer in history butchered five of his neighbors before he was old enough to drive. When he was caught eighteen years ago, Rhode Island's antiquated criminal statutes – never intended for someone like him – required that all juveniles, no matter their crimes, be released at age twenty-one. The killer is still behind bars, serving time for crimes supposedly committed on the inside. That these charges were fabricated is an open secret; but nearly everyone is fine with it – if the monster ever gets out more people will surely die. But Mason is not fine with it. If officials can get away with framing this killer they could do it to anybody. As Mason sets out to prove officials are perverting the justice system, Mulligan searches frantically for some legal way to keep the monster behind bars. The dueling investigations pit the friends against each other in a high-stakes race against time – and snares them in an ethical dilemma that has no right answer.

Providence Rag is a gripping novel of suspense by one of the rising talents in the mystery field.

But on his first night in the game, he’s ruthlessly shot at by an undercover cop, and his only choice is to shoot back in self-defence. When the cop is killed it’s Cardell’s word against the other police officer on the scene, and proving Cardell innocent will be far from simple.

    Вот уже почти двадцать лет Джанкарло Ло Манто — полицейский из Неаполя — личный враг мафиозной семьи Росси. Он нанес ей миллионный ущерб, не раз уходил от наемных убийц и, словно заговоренный, не боясь смерти, снова бросался в бой. Потому что его война с мафией — это не просто служебный долг, это возмездие за убийство отца, друзей, всех тех, кто не захотел покориться и жить по законам преступного мира. Теперь Ло Манто предстоит вернуться в Нью-Йорк, город его детства, город его памяти, для последнего решающего поединка. И каков будет его исход, не возьмется угадать никто…

  •  Иду за тобой

     Детективы и Триллеры, Детектив,

    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.

  •  Голубой лабиринт (ЛП)
     Чайлд Линкольн, Престон Дуглас
     Фантастика, Ужасы и Мистика, Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер

    Невидимый кукловод, жаждущий возмездия, взял в свои руки жизнь агента ФБР и управляет им, словно марионеткой, завлекая его в свои ядовитые сети. Но Пендергаст не замечает этого — а все потому, что его обычно такой цепкий и проницательный разум затуманен чувством потери из-за убийства его сына, Альбана, которого он считал исчезнувшим в джунглях Бразилии.  Месть свершилась, яд бурлит в крови агента, но его сердце все еще бьется… и чтобы снова стать хозяином своей судьбы и обрести шанс на спасение ему придется вернуться туда, откуда все началось, и встретиться лицом к лицу с тем, что было сокрыто между строк истории его семьи…

     Ракитин Алексей Иванович, Ракитина Ольга
     Детективы и Триллеры, Детектив

    Роман «Гувернантка» является хронологически первым в серии «Невыдуманные истории на ночь». Сюжет его основан на реальных событиях — обстоятельствах расследования подозрительной смерти в апреле 1878 г. Николая Познанского, 18-летнего сына жандармского полковника (в романе — Прознанский). В отравлении была заподозрена домашняя воспитательница, предположительно состоявшая в интимных отношениях с молодым человеком. Интригующие перипетии этого расследования широко обсуждались прессой тех лет.

  •  Cмерть Анны Ор
     Максим Марк
     Детективы и Триллеры, Шпионский детектив, Приключения, Приключения

    Романы Марка Максима (под этим псевдонимом выступал поэт, беллетрист и журналист Б. В. Олидорт), выходившие в 1920-х гг. — классический пример литературы «красного Пинкертона». На страницах их живут и действуют иностранные разведчики, пронырливые агенты империализма, роковые и несчастные красавицы и неустрашимые советские шпионы.

    Роман «Смерть Анны Ор» рассказывает о шпионских интригах в Одессе времен иностранной интервенции 1919 г. В образе центральной героини, киноактрисы Анны Ор, угадывается звезда немого кино Вера Холодная и многочисленные легенды, связанные с ее безвременной смертью в Одессе в феврале 1919 г.

  •  Pawns of the Pacific
     Watts Andrew
     Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер

    A nation on the brink of war.

    A conspiracy that threatens the globe.

    And one military family, caught in the middle, fighting for freedom.


    Pawns of the Pacific is the electrifying third book in The War Planners military technothriller series.


    While the United States is preparing for war with Iran, Chinese billionaire Cheng Jinshan and his wicked spy, Lena Chou, are moving their pieces on the board. Deception and misinformation are everywhere.

    Now, in order to save America, the leaders in the CIA and Pentagon have set up a secretive task force at the CIA headquarters. Their mission: to thwart Jinshan's plans, and reveal the truth to the world.

    Each member of the Manning family has a critical role to play. David Manning is brought in to the CIA task force. Chase Manning is sent to team up with a US Marine Corps special operations unit. Admiral Manning leads the USS Ford Carrier Strike Group, filled with America's latest and greatest naval technology. And Lieutenant Commander Victoria Manning is the officer in charge of a helicopter detachment on the navy destroyer, the USS Farragut — the only ship that stands in the way of a Chinese onslaught.


    Filled with pulse-pounding action, well-rounded characters, and unpredictable twists, Pawns of the Pacific delivers a satisfying third chapter to The War Planners series.
