Das Buch

Maxim de Winter lernt in Monte Carlo nach dem Tod seiner Frau Rebecca ein bescheidenes junges Mädchen von natürlichem Charme kennen. Die beiden heiraten, und sieben Wochen später trifft die neue Mrs. de Winter an der Seite ihres Mannes auf Manderley, dem alten englischen Herrensitz, ein. Die Größe des Anwesens, die Zimmerfluchten, die Förmlichkeit der Dienstboten verwirren sie. Alles in diesem Haus trägt noch den Stempel Rebeccas, ihrer Vorgängerin, die -wie es scheint - in einer nahe gelegenen Bucht an der Küste bei einem Bootsunglück ums Leben gekommen ist.

Während Maxim den Erinnerungen an seine erste Frau aus dem Wege geht und ihre früheren Räume verschlossen hält, treibt Mrs. Danver, die Haushälterin, geradezu einen Kult mit diesen Erinnerungen und begegnet der neuen Herrin mit kaum verhohlener Verachtung.

Aus einigen Gesprächen, flüchtigen Eindrücken und merkwürdigen Begegnungen formt sich in der jungen Mrs. de Winter allmählich das Bild Rebeccas: schön, eigenwillig und intelligent. Von den Schattenseiten Rebeccas, die eine blutige Tragödie heraufbeschworen haben, erfährt sie erst, als ihre Ehe mit Maxim einer kaum erträglichen Belastungsprobe unterworfen wird.

Mit höhnischer Wut scheint die Rache der Toten das Glück der Lebenden zerstören zu wollen, gespenstisch entsteigt die Wahrheit den sturmgepeitschten Fluten der Bucht vor Manderley, bis schließlich das stolze Herrenhaus nichts anderes mehr ist als ein verblassendes Traumbild im Leben zweier geprüfter, aber geretteter Menschen.

обложка книги Rizzo’s Fire Rizzo’s Fire

Lou Manfredo's acclaimed debut novel, Rizzo's War, brought the streets of Brooklyn to life in a way that no New York City crime novel has before-full of the details, the sounds, the sights of walking a beat in Bensonhurst. Now in Rizzo's Fire, as twenty-year veteran Joe Rizzo edges closer to retirement, things only seem to get harder: having promised his wife he'd quit smoking, he's working the most baffling case of his career, with a new partner to boot.

Robert Lauria was practically a hermit, and was dead ten days before anyone found him. Fired from his job as a shoe salesman weeks ago, he rarely left his apartment and had no visitors except his cousin, who says she hardly knew him. So who strangled him late one night as he made tea in the kitchen in his pajamas? And could there be a connection to the headline-grabbing murder of a Broadway producer a day earlier? Rizzo and his new partner, Priscilla Jackson, carefully comb through the life of this forgotten man, even though the case has already been put on the back burner by their superiors. And what they find will surprise everyone.

Armed with more street smarts than the FBI agents assigned to the more glamorous case, Rizzo and his new partner Priscilla Jackson are tasked with navigating the twin labyrinths of the truth and NYPD politics in order to find the killer and bring him to justice.

обложка книги Rêver Rêver

« Pour la plupart des gens, le rêve s’arrête au réveil. »

Si ce n’étaient ses cicatrices et les photos étranges qui tapissent les murs de son bureau, on pourrait dire d’Abigaël qu’elle est une femme comme les autres.

Si ce n’étaient ces moments où elle chute au pays des rêves, on pourrait jurer qu’Abigaël dit vrai.

Abigaël a beau être cette psychologue qu’on s’arrache sur les affaires criminelles difficiles, sa maladie survient toujours comme une invitée non désirée. Une narcolepsie sévère qui la coupe du monde plusieurs fois par jour et l’emmène dans une dimension où le rêve empiète sur la réalité. Pour les distinguer l’un de l’autre, elle n’a pas trouvé mieux que la douleur.


Comment Abigaël est-elle sortie indemne de l’accident qui lui a ravi son père et sa fille ? Par quel miracle a-t-on pu la retrouver à côté de la voiture, véritable confetti de tôle, le visage à peine touché par quelques bris de verre ? Quel secret cachait son père qui tenait tant, ce matin de décembre, à s’exiler pour deux jours en famille ? Elle qui suait sang et eau sur une affaire de disparitions depuis quelques mois va devoir mener l’enquête la plus cruciale de sa vie.

Dans cette enquête, il y a une proie et un prédateur : elle-même.


Franck Thilliez est l’auteur de plus d’une dizaine de romans, parmi lesquels Atomka, Le Syndrome E et, plus récemment, Pandemia. Lauréat du prix Étoiles du Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France pour le meilleur polar 2014 avec Angor, il confirme sa place de pilier du thriller français et continue d’alterner one-shots et enquêtes menées par son couple phare Lucie Henebelle/Franck Sharko.

Adapté au cinéma pour La Chambre des morts (prix SNCF du polar français), Franck Thilliez est aussi scénariste. En 2016, le Palais de Tokyo lui commande une nouvelle, publiée chez Fleuve Éditions, dans le cadre de l’exposition « Double Je ».

Rzeź bezkręgowców

Powieść niekwestionowanej pierwszej damy polskiego kryminału. Kolejna zagadka do rozwikłania. Fragment: – - Ostrowski z tej strony, pani Joanno, z zamordowaniem Wejchenmanna nie ma pani chyba nic wspólnego…? Może zbyt szczerze się pani wypowiadała, bo jakoś wszystkim się pani na myśl nasuwa… Tadzio: – Pani Joanno, co jest? Słyszała pani o tym? Agnieszka mnie podpuszcza, żeby panią zapytać, to chyba nie pani rąbnęła tego Wejchenmanna…? Nic nie wiemy, ale sensacja wszędzie! Paweł: – Joanna? Cześć! Zdaje się, ze twoja ulubiona postać z tego świata zeszła? Gdyby ci było potrzebne jakieś alibi, to my chętnie… Nie czułam się zaskoczona, z góry wiedziałam, że będę pierwszą podejrzaną. Może i rzeczywiście nie należało do tego stopnia kłapać gębą publicznie…? Z drugiej strony nie szkodzi, jeśli na mnie padnie, prawdziwemu sprawdzy ujdzie na sucho i niech w zdrowiu kwitnie! Może rozpęd weźmie i na tym jednym szlachetnym czynie nie poprzestanie…? Tak mi się jakoś pomyślało w złą godzię…

Romans Wszechczasów

Wszystko zaczęło się od tego, że rozleciał mi się samochód. Wracałam z Gdańska do Warszawy i za Pasłękiem wjechałam sobie do lasu, żeby nazbierać kwiatków. Ściśle biorąc, nie były to kwiatki, tylko jakieś badyle, zaczynające z siebie coś wypuszczać. Była pierwsza połowa marca, pogoda od kilku dni zrobiła się cudownie piękna, słońce świeciło i flora zdążyła zareagować…

Si, en ouvrant cet ouvrage, le lecteur pense lutter contre l'insomnie, il en sera pour ses frais et n'aura qu'à s'entendre avec son pharmacien habituel pour l'échanger contre un tube de Gardénal.

Car ce livre est un ring, une arène, on s'y bat d'un bout à l'autre.

La série d'ouvrages que publiera San-Antonio appartient à la littérature d'action. Celle mise à la mode par Peter Cheney, JH Chase, James Cain, etc… Ici l'énigme le céde à la violence.

Ce livre doit se lire avec un revolver à la portée de la main.

Il est écrit dans une langue savoureuse et pleine de fantaisie faubourienne, mais nul doute que le héros de ce roman ne soit sympathique à tous.

Gouailleur, âpre, rusé, amer, tendre, violent, San Antonio écrit d'avantage avec ses poings qu'avec sa plume.

обложка книги Revelation Revelation

It is spring, 1543 and King Henry VIII is wooing Lady Catherine Parr, whom he wants for his sixth wife — but this time the object of his affections is resisting. Archbishop Cranmer and the embattled Protestant faction at court are watching keenly, for Lady Catherine is known to have reformist sympathies.

Matthew Shardlake, meanwhile, is working on the case of a teenage boy, a religious maniac who has been placed by the King's council in the Bedlam hospital for the insane. Should he be released as his parents want, when his terrifying actions could lead to him being burned as a heretic?

Then, when an old friend is horrifically murdered, Shardlake promises his widow — for whom he has long had complicated feelings — to bring the killer to justice. His search leads him to connections not only with the boy in Bedlam, but with Archbishop Cranmer and Catherine Parr, and with the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.

As London's Bishop Bonner prepares a purge of Protestants, Shardlake, together with his assistant Jack Barak and his friend Guy Malton, follow the trail of a series of horrific murders that shake them to the core. Murders which are already bringing about frenzied talk of witchcraft and a demonic possession, for what else would the Tudor mind make of a serial killer?

1592. England and Spain are at war, yet there is peril at home, too. The death of her trusted spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham has left Queen Elizabeth vulnerable. Conspiracies multiply. The quiet life of John Shakespeare is shattered by a summons from Robert Cecil, the cold but deadly young statesman who dominated the last years of the Queen's long reign, insisting Shakespeare re-enter government service. His mission: to find vital papers, now in the possession of the Earl of Essex. Essex is the brightest star in the firmament, a man of ambition. He woos the Queen, thirty-three years his senior, as if she were a girl his age. She is flattered by him – despite her loathing for his mother, the beautiful, dangerous Lettice Knollys who presides over her own glittering court – a dazzling array of the mad, bad, dangerous and disaffected. When John Shakespeare infiltrates this dissolute world he discovers not only that the Queen herself is in danger – but that he and his family is also a target. With only his loyal footsoldier Boltfoot Cooper at his side, Shakespeare must face implacable forces who believe themselves above the law: men and women who kill without compunction. And in a world of shifting allegiances, just how far he can trust Robert Cecil, his devious new master?

Prawdziwym bohaterem tej epickiej sagi dwóch rodów, prowadzącej czytelnika przez tysiąc lat ich dziejów, jest Rzym miasto i jego mieszkańcy. Wplatając historię, legendę i najnowsze odkrycia archeologiczne w dynamiczną narrację, Steven Saylor tchnął nowe życie w dramat pierwszego tysiąclecia Wiecznego Miasta od chwili jego założenia poprzez meandry zadziwiającej drogi do roli stolicy najpotężniejszego w dziejach imperium. Rzym przypomina tragedię bohatera i zdrajcy Koriolana, zdobycie miasta przez Galów, najazd Hannibala, zacięte zmagania polityczne między patrycjuszami i plebejuszami, a wreszcie śmierć republiki z chwilą triumfu i wkrótce potem zabójstwa Juliusza Cezara. świadkami, uczestnikami, a czasem głównymi aktorami dramatu są potomkowie starych rodów Potycjuszów i Pinariuszów. Rolę łącznika między pokoleniami pełni tajemniczy talizman, odwieczny jak samo miasto. Steven Saylor, historyk, jest autorem uznanego przez krytyków i uwielbianego przez czytelników cyklu powieści Roma sub rosa, wydanego w osiemnastu językach, także w wersji polskiej przez REBIS, pojawiał się też w roli eksperta od polityki i realiów codzienności starożytnego Rzymu w telewizyjnych filmach dokumentalnych nadawanych w wielu krajach na kanale History Channel. Rzym historyczna panorama, ludzki dramat i porywająca opowieść jest jego największym literackim osiągnięciem.

In a daring plan, the Confederate Secret Service sends a group of cavalrymen to kidnap, or kill, President Abraham Lincoln by seizing the train secretly carrying him to Gettysburg on the eve of his famous Address.

Colonel Arthur Percy leads the rebel raiders into enemy territory. His crew includes Tom Flynn, an assassin sent to make sure Percy follows orders-or dies trying.

Lincoln is not the only valuable cargo on the train. A fortune in Union payroll is the target of a Baltimore belle and a tough gambler.

The situation is further complicated when the original crew of the seized train finds another locomotive and gives chase.


Based on a true story, Rebel Train runs a mile a minute in a steam-driven race through the farmlands and mountains of Maryland and Virginia. The outcome will decide not only the fate of Lincoln and the Raiders, but of the Union and the Confederacy.

Finn is a veteran MI6 operative stationed in Moscow. In the guise of an amiable trade secretary, he has penetrated deep into the dangerous labyrinth that is Russia under Vladimir Putin to discover some of its darkest secrets, thanks to a high-level source deep within the Kremlin.

The youngest female colonel in the KGB, Anna is the ambitious daughter of one of the former Soviet Union's elite espionage families. Charged with helping to make Russia strong again under Putin, she is ordered to spy on Finn and discover the identity of his mole.

At the dawn of the new millennium, these adversaries find themselves brought together by an unexpected love that becomes the only truth they can trust. When Finn uncovers a shocking and ingenious plan—hatched in the depths of the Cold War—to control the European continent and shift the balance of world power, he and Anna are thrust into a deadly plot in which friend and foe wear the same face. With time running out, they will race across Europe and risk every-thing—career, reputation, and even their own lives—to expose the terrifying truth.

It began with a black man, a white woman and enough gold to ransom the world.

The man was consumed with race hate, driven to senseless slaughter by a single-minded plan for retribution. The woman was possessed by the need for every variety of sensual delight. The gold was mined secretly in Rhodesia, owned by a die-hard Nazi who had long ago sacrifice a soul and sanity to insatiable dreams of glory.

This was the terrifying trio that awaited Nick Carter in Rhodesia — on a brutal seek-and-destroy mission against an organization of assassins that had infiltrated every country of Africa.

This is the story of Harry, the ex-mobster who first appeared in "Pronto", who has been kidnapped by a raggle-taggle band of extortionists and ex-cons under the impression that he's richer than he really is.In this sequel to Pronto, Harry Arno has retired from bookmaking but is still closing out some of his outstanding debts. But then his collection agent, an ex-con by the name of Bobby Deo, goes to pick up $1,800 from Chip Ganz and ends up getting hired for a hostage-taking operation (like kidnapping "in a way," Chip tells him, "only different. A lot different.") When Harry's taken by his own man, it's up to United States Marshal Raylan Givens to track him down, in the same methodically relentless fashion he tracked Harry that time he ran off to Italy.

When Jake Russo is transferred from a New York City beat to a Florida retirement community, his reporting life slows down. Instead of covering life in the big city, he's stuck writing puff pieces about bridge games and shuffleboard. His biggest challenge? Sticking to his diet.

That all changes when an older resident mysteriously dies on the beach. Jake has to figure out why and how she died. With the help of his bumbling octogenerian cameraman, Jake will have to overcome his lack of confidence and find the truth. He'll discover love, conspiracy, and surprising secrets in Florida's retirement communities.

Light as a day at the beach, this playful mystery is an early buffet of flirtation, intrigue, and senior citizens gone bad.

Finn is a veteran MI6 operative stationed in Moscow. In the guise of an amiable trade secretary, he has penetrated deep into the dangerous labyrinth that is Russia under Vladimir Putin to discover some of its darkest secrets, thanks to a high-level source deep within the Kremlin.

The youngest female colonel in the KGB, Anna is the ambitious daughter of one of the former Soviet Union's elite espionage families. Charged with helping to make Russia strong again under Putin, she is ordered to spy on Finn and discover the identity of his mole.

At the dawn of the new millennium, these adversaries find themselves brought together by an unexpected love that becomes the only truth they can trust. When Finn uncovers a shocking and ingenious plan—hatched in the depths of the Cold War—to control the European continent and shift the balance of world power, he and Anna are thrust into a deadly plot in which friend and foe wear the same face. With time running out, they will race across Europe and risk every-thing—career, reputation, and even their own lives—to expose the terrifying truth.

After a showdown with the notorious Yemeni terrorist known as The Panther, John Corey has left the Anti-Terrorist Task Force and returned home to New York City, taking a job with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group. Although Corey’s new assignment with the DSG-surveilling Russian diplomats working at the U.N. Mission-is thought to be “a quiet end,” he is more than happy to be out from under the thumb of the FBI and free from the bureaucracy of office life.

But Corey realizes something the U.S. government doesn’t: The all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.

When Vasily Petrov, a colonel in the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service posing as a diplomat with the Russian U.N. Mission, mysteriously disappears from a Russian oligarch’s party in Southampton, it’s up to Corey to track him down. What are the Russians up to and why? Is there a possible nuclear threat, a so-called radiant angel? Will Corey find Petrov and put a stop to whatever he has planned before it’s too late? Or will Corey finally be outrun and outsmarted, with America facing the prospect of a crippling attack unlike anything it’s ever seen before?

Prescient and chilling. DeMille’s new novel takes us into the heart of a new Cold War with a clock-ticking plot that has Manhattan in its crosshairs.

обложка книги Roadside Crosses Roadside Crosses

The Monterey Peninsula is rocked when a killer begins to leave roadside crosses beside local highways-not in memoriam, but as announcements of his intention to kill. And to kill in particularly horrific and efficient ways: using the personal details about the victims that they've carelessly posted in blogs and on social networking websites. The case lands on the desk of Kathryn Dance, the California Bureau of Investigation's foremost kinesics-body language-expert. She and Deputy Michael O'Neil follow the leads to Travis Brigham, a troubled teenager whose role in a fatal car accident has inspired vicious attacks against him on a popular blog, The Chilton Report. As the investigation progresses, Travis vanishes. Using techniques he learned as a brilliant participant in MMORPGs, Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games, he easily eludes his pursuers and continues to track his victims, some of whom Kathryn is able to save, some not. Among the obstacles Kathryn must hurdle are politicians from Sacramento, paranoid parents and the blogger himself, James Chilton, whose belief in the importance of blogging and the new media threatens to derail the case and potentially Dance's career. It is this threat that causes Dance to take desperate and risky measures… In signature Jeffery Deaver style, Roadside Crosses is filled with dozens of plot twists, cliff-hangers and heartrending personal subplots. It is also a searing look at the accountability of blogging and life in the online world. Roadside Crosses is the third in Deaver's bestselling High-Tech Thriller Trilogy, along with The Blue Nowhere and The Broken Window.

In Rain Storm, Rain has fled to Brazil to escape the killing business and the enemies who have been encircling him. But his knack for making death seem to have been of “natural causes” and his ability to operate unnoticed in Asia continue to create unwelcome demand for his services. His old employer, the CIA, persuades him to take on a high-risk assignment: a ruthless arms dealer supplying criminal groups throughout Southeast Asia.

The upside? Financial, of course, along with the continued chimera of moral redemption. But first, Rain must survive the downside: a second assassin homing in on the target; the target’s consort – an alluring woman named Delilah with an agenda of her own; and the possibility that the entire mission is nothing but an elaborate setup. From the gorgeous beaches of Rio to the glitzy casinos of Macao to the gritty back streets of Hong Kong and Kowloon, Rain becomes a reluctant player in an international game far deadlier and more insidious than he has ever encountered before.

Agatha Award (nominee)

Publisher's Weekly

An ingenious plot and sufficient flow of blood keep the pages flying in Harris's (Sweet and Deadly) third novel, as a series of killings patterned after celebrated murders is perpetrated on the small community of Lawrenceton, Ga. Twenty-eight-year-old Aurora (Roe) Teagarden, professional librarian, belongs to the Real Murders club, a group of 12 enthusiasts who gather monthly to study famous baffling or unsolved crimes. As a meeting is to begin, Roe discovers the massacred body of a club member. She recognizes the method of slaughter as imitating the very crime she was to address that night-suddenly her life as armchair sleuth assumes an eerie reality. The murderer continues to claim victims, each in the style of a different historical killer. Roe herself becomes a target, and also attracts two admirers, Robin Crusoe, a famed mystery writer new to Lawrenceton, and club member/detective Arthur Smith. Death seems to have infused new life into her waning social calendar, an irony not lost on this pensive character. Harris draws the guilty and the innocent into an engrossing tale while inventing a heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray. (Dec.)

School Library Journal

YA- Someone is killing the crime buffs of the Real Murders Society in Lawrenceton, Georgia. A librarian, Aurora Teagarden, sets out to catch the brutal murderer after fellow club members end up as victims. The uncanny resemblances to famous crimes challenge Roe and her two admirers, policeman Arthur Smith and mystery writer Robin Crusoe, to pursue the criminal. The lighthearted, witty handling of characters contrasts with the heightening suspense as Aurora seeks clues by searching past mysteries for the killer's identity-until she is caught in the sadistic web of terror herself. Clever pacing along with ample red herrings and judiciously placed clues keep Harris's story moving briskly. Let's hope for another fast-paced mystery featuring Aurora and her friends.- Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, MD

***

Aurora Teagarden, Lawrenceton, Georgia, librarian and member of a club devoted to the study of famous crimes, has prepared what she thinks ought to be a riveting speech for the Real Murders Society. But a playful murderer steals the show with a real-life re-enactment of the case Aurora has chosen, casting one of the club members as victim. Gathering her wits about her after the shock of discovering the body, Aurora-Roe to her friends-provides some tips for policeman Arthur Smith, another member of the club, on the similarities between the cases.

Soon bespectacled Roe is receiving attentions not only from Arthur but from mystery writer Robin Crusoe. Robin is new in town and a tenant of the apartment complex Roe manages for her mother. It is not long, however, before the unwonted glow of romance Roe is basking in is overshadowed by the murderer, who seems to have chosen her for his next victim. Roe is too smart to fall prey to the ghoulish prankster but he hits his mark the next time, killing the parents of one of her friends, again in the style of an earlier crime. Lawrenceton appears to have a serial killer on its hands, and an audacious one at that. He taunts the police further by planting evidence in one of their own vehicles, and on the properties of society members.

Roe is sure one of her fellow history buffs is guilty but can’t decide whether it’s Philip Allison, a mentally disturbed library worker; Gilford Doakes, whose special interest is mass murders; or someone seemingly more stable, like reporter Sally Allison or banker Bankston Waite. Supported by Arthur and Robin, between whom she is not yet ready to choose, Roe scours the chronicles of old murders and the real settings of the crimes for the clues that will crack the case.

In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio. He snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister, just before his entire team is slaughtered.

His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's death is in that cellphone picture.  No one believes her until she finds Swanson and the secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder—what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces.

Now the two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror. The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?

Das Buch

Maxim de Winter lernt in Monte Carlo nach dem Tod seiner Frau Rebecca ein bescheidenes junges Mädchen von natürlichem Charme kennen. Die beiden heiraten, und sieben Wochen später trifft die neue Mrs. de Winter an der Seite ihres Mannes auf Manderley, dem alten englischen Herrensitz, ein. Die Größe des Anwesens, die Zimmerfluchten, die Förmlichkeit der Dienstboten verwirren sie. Alles in diesem Haus trägt noch den Stempel Rebeccas, ihrer Vorgängerin, die -wie es scheint - in einer nahe gelegenen Bucht an der Küste bei einem Bootsunglück ums Leben gekommen ist.

Während Maxim den Erinnerungen an seine erste Frau aus dem Wege geht und ihre früheren Räume verschlossen hält, treibt Mrs. Danver, die Haushälterin, geradezu einen Kult mit diesen Erinnerungen und begegnet der neuen Herrin mit kaum verhohlener Verachtung.

Aus einigen Gesprächen, flüchtigen Eindrücken und merkwürdigen Begegnungen formt sich in der jungen Mrs. de Winter allmählich das Bild Rebeccas: schön, eigenwillig und intelligent. Von den Schattenseiten Rebeccas, die eine blutige Tragödie heraufbeschworen haben, erfährt sie erst, als ihre Ehe mit Maxim einer kaum erträglichen Belastungsprobe unterworfen wird.

Mit höhnischer Wut scheint die Rache der Toten das Glück der Lebenden zerstören zu wollen, gespenstisch entsteigt die Wahrheit den sturmgepeitschten Fluten der Bucht vor Manderley, bis schließlich das stolze Herrenhaus nichts anderes mehr ist als ein verblassendes Traumbild im Leben zweier geprüfter, aber geretteter Menschen.

Derek Strange and Terry Quinn are ex cops turned private detectives in Washington, DC. Hired to investigate the death of an off duty black police officer at the hands of a white policeman, Strange and Quinn are faced with the institutionalised racism of the nation's most poorly trained and dangerous police force. As the two private detectives confront the degradation of the city's flourishing drug trade, they find themselves up against some of the most implacable, dead eyed killers ever to grace the pages of a novel. In Right As Rain George Pelecanos introduces a memorable new pair of characters into the grittily real Washington DC landscape which has led to him being acclaimed as 'A great writer' (The Times) who 'deserves to be listed among the best' (Observer).

On top of it all, Maureen – who identifies all too readily with the underdogs of this world – has become embroiled in someone else's family feud.

When an elderly stallholder at the flea market where Maureen and Leslie are selling illegally imported cigarettes dies in hospital after a brutal beating, Maureen questions why anyone might want to kill the woman popularly known as 'Home Gran'. She suspects Ella's son, but Si McGee is an upstanding member of the Scottish business community, runs a chain of estate agents and has a health club in Glasgow 's West End. But she soon discovers that the 'health club' fronts a much less respectable establishment. As Angus's trial approaches, once again Maureen is under threat, and this time she has very few protectors.

Dr. Jonathan Ransom, world-class mountaineer and surgeon for Doctors Without Borders, is climbing in the Swiss Alps with his beautiful wife, Emma, when a blizzard sets in. In their bid to escape the storm, Emma is killed when she falls into a hidden crevasse.

Twenty-four hours later, Jonathan receives an envelope addressed to his wife containing two baggage-claim tickets. Puzzled, he journeys to a remote railway station only to find himself in a life-and-death struggle for his wife's possessions. In the aftermath of the assault, he discovers that his attackers-one dead, the other mortally wounded-were, in fact, Swiss police officers. More frightening still is evidence of an extraordinary act of betrayal that leaves Jonathan stunned.

Suddenly the subject of an international manhunt and the target of a master assassin, Jonathan is forced on the run. His only chance at survival lies in uncovering the devastating truth behind the secret his wife kept from him, and stopping the terrifying conspiracy that threatens to bring the world to the brink of annihilation. Step-by-step, he is drawn deeper into a world of spies, high-tech weaponry, and global terrorism-a world where no one is who they appear to be and where the ends always justify the means.

RULES OF DECEPTION is a brilliantly conceived, twisting tale of intrigue and deceit written by the master of the espionage thriller for the twenty-first century.

Just after lunch on a Tuesday in April, nine feet under water, police diver Flea Marley closes her gloved fingers around a human hand. The fact that there's no body attached is disturbing enough. Yet more disturbing is the discovery, a day later, of the matching hand. Both have been recently amputated, and the indications are that the victim was still alive when they were removed. DI Jack Caffery has been newly seconded to the Major Crime Investigation Unit in Bristol. He and Flea soon establish that the hands belong to a boy who has recently disappeared. Their search for him — and for his abductor — lead them into the darkest recesses of Bristol's underworld, where drug addiction is rife, where street-kids sell themselves for a hit, and where an ancient evil lurks; an evil that feeds off the blood — and flesh — of others …

обложка книги Rogi Rogi

Piekło w stylu Sartre'a

No to sobie redaktor pojechał po bandzie – być może taka myśl zaświtała w umyśle czytelnika tej recenzji, który zobaczył był jej tytuł i sprawdził, jakiej książki dotyczy (lub też sprawdził był jakiej książki dotyczy, a następnie zobaczył tytuł…). A jednak – skojarzenie Joe Hilla, a dokładnie jego najnowszej powieści pod tytułem Rogi, ze słynnym stwierdzeniem francuskiego myśliciela jest całkiem dorzeczne. Staje się zaś jeszcze bardziej na miejscu, gdy dopowiem, że Rogi nie są raczej typowym horrorem, za co zresztą autorowi się oberwało od co bardziej dogmatycznych recenzentów.

Zaczyna się od wysokiego tonu. Pewnego ranka niejaki Ignatius Perrish budzi się na mocnym kacu, któremu towarzyszy jakże częsty w takich przypadkach stan zagubienia i niepewności. Jest pewien, że w nocy narobił głupstw, ale nic nie pamięta. W lustrze zauważa z przerażeniem, że wyrosły mu rogi… To jednak dopiero początek zmian zachodzących w naszym bohaterze. Po pewnym czasie spostrzega, że wszyscy napotkani ludzie zaczynają się przed nim otwierać, jakby chcieli wyspowiadać się z najmroczniejszych sekretów i pragnień. Dotyczy to także jego najbliższej rodziny. Tu trzeba zauważyć, że Ignatius jest w swym miasteczku osobą, delikatnie mówiąc, niezbyt popularną. Rok wcześniej zgwałcono i brutalnie zamordowano jego dziewczynę, a mimo braku formalnego oskarżenia wszyscy uznali, że dokonał tego właśnie on…

Dlaczego Rogi nie są klasycznym horrorem? Bo z jednej strony autor nie epatuje tu czytelników przerażającymi opisami krwawych jatek (chociaż psychologiczne wiwisekcje są moim zdaniem naprawdę mroczne), a z drugiej zadziwiająco głębokie są tezy, które stawia. Tu już nie chodzi tylko i wyłącznie o przejrzystą konstatację, że najwięcej cierpienia czeka nas nie ze strony wymyślonych demonów, ale zwykłych ludzi. To właśnie przecież miał między innymi na myśli Jean-Paul Sartre, mówiąc: żadnych palenisk nie ma, piekło to inni… Ignatius Perrish doświadczający na kartach powieści iście kafkowskiej przemiany, jawi się nam jako bohater pozytywny, na przekór czarnej legendzie, jaką owiana jest postać diabła, i nieco przez kontrast z osobą swego głównego antagonisty, czyli prawdziwego mordercy jego ukochanej. Nagle wszystko staje na głowie, prawdziwym staje się wymyślony domek na drzewie, stanowiący w powieści dość czytelny symbol, a my przyjmujemy optykę autora.

To ewidentne – Joe Hill nie zamierzał napisać horroru. Jednak ze względu na swoje wcześniejsze dokonania, a zwłaszcza to, czyim jest synem, powieść została umieszczona na półce ze stosownym napisem, w szufladce katalogu nieznającego żadnych odstępstw od normy. To jednak tak naprawdę powieść psychologiczna, być może za często uciekająca w dygresje i retrospekcje, przez co gubi swój rytm (ale u Stephena Kinga ten grzech także się powtarza). Być może chwilami akcja zaczyna znienacka trącić harlequinem, tracić spoistość i formę. Jednak po dobrym Pudełku w kształcie serca i świetnym zbiorze opowiadań Demony XX wieku można było tylko powielać wcześniejsze dokonania, albo spróbować czegoś nowego. I to jest właśnie nowy Joe Hill, a przy tym naprawdę ciekawy kawałek prozy.

In a host of consecutive bestsellers, Jonathan Kellerman has kept readers spellbound with the intense, psychologically acute adventures of Dr. Alex Delaware-and with excursions through the raw underside of L.A. and the coldest alleys of the criminal mind. Rage offers a powerful new case in point, as Delaware and LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis revisit a horrifying crime from the past that has taken on shocking and deadly new dimensions.

Troy Turner and Rand Duchay were barely teenagers when they kidnapped and murdered a younger child. Troy, a remorseless sociopath, died violently behind bars. But the hulking, slow-witted Rand managed to survive his stretch. Now, at age twenty-one, he's emerged a haunted, rootless young man with a pressing need: to talk-once again-with psychologist Alex Delaware. But the young killer comes to a brutal end, that conversation never takes place.

Has karma caught up with Rand? Or has someone waited for eight patient years to dine on ice-cold revenge? Both seem strong possibilities to Sturgis, but Delaware's suspicions run deeper… and darker. Because fear in the voice of the grownup Rand Duchay-and his eerie final words to Alex: "I'm not a bad person"-betray untold secrets. Buried revelations so horrendous, and so damning, they're worth killing for.

As Delaware and Sturgis retrace their steps through a grisly murder case that devastated a community, they discover a chilling legacy of madness, suicide, and multiple killings left in its wake-and even uglier truths waiting to be unearthed. And the nearer they come to understanding an unspeakable crime, the more harrowingly close they get to unmasking a monster hiding in plain sight.

Rage finds Jonathan Kellerman in phenomenal form-orchestrating a relentlessly suspenseful, devilishly unpredictable plot to a finale as stunning and thought-provoking as it is satisfying.

As he lies, bound and hidden, on the floor of his abductors' SUV, Carroll Monks is only dimly aware of the bizarre series of high-profile murders sweeping across the nation. What he thinks about instead, as they travel for hours deep into the Northern California wilderness, is that the face of one of his abductors belongsto his own son, Glenn – long estranged and living (the last Monksknew) on the streets of Seattle.

The vehicle finally stops. When Monks is untied and steps out, he sees he's been brought to a remote off-the-grid community where paramilitary training and methamphetamine make for combustible, uneasy bedfellows – and that Glenn has fallen under the spell of a disenfranchised countercultural sociopath known simply as Freeboot, who claims that a revolution "of the people" is already under way. Monks is appalled by Freeboot's violent histrionics and Manson-like affinity for the hidden messages buried within Lennon and McCartney lyrics, yet acknowledges that he hears echoes of his own feelings when Freeboot speaks about the disintegration of workers' rights, the escalating differential between the haves and the have-nots, and the slap-on-the-wrist "justice" doled out in cases of billion-dollar corporate malfeasance. Could this well-armed madman actually have his finger on the pulse of the underclass?

The reason Monks has been abducted, he soon discovers, is Freeboot's own son, a four-year-old boy who is deathly ill – a conundrum for Freeboot, whose distrust of institutional America (hospitals included) borders on the psychotic. Monks, an ER physician, has been brought in to care for the boy, but he can see immediately that the boy's condition is acute and that only immediate hospitalization will save him. When Monks's pleas fall on deaf ears, he fashions a daring escape during a snowstorm, with the young boy slung across his back – and brings the wrath of a madman down on himself and his family, culminating in a diabolically crafted "revolution" – a re-creation of Hitchcock's The Birds, but with human predators, unleashed on the town of Bodega Bay, California.

Rough Weather

A hurricane hinders a kidnapping and Spenser goes on a search for the man responsible – the infamous Gray Man, who has both helped and hunted Spenser in the past.

Heidi Bradshaw is wealthy, beautiful, and well connected – and she needs Spenser's help. In a most unlikely request, Heidi, a notorious gold digger recently separated from her latest husband, recruits the Boston P.I. to accompany her to her private island, Tashtego. The reason? To attend her daughter's wedding as a sort of stand-in husband and protector. Spenser consents, but only after it is established that his beloved Susan Silverman will also be in attendance.

It should be a straightforward job for Spenser: show up for appearances, have some drinks, and spend some quality time with Susan. But when Spenser's old nemesis Rugar – the Gray Man – arrives, Spenser realizes that something is amiss. A storm, a kidnapping, and murder tear apart what should be a joyous occasion, and Rugar is seemingly at the center of it all. The only thing is that the sloppy kidnapping is not Rugar's style – as Spenser knows from past encounters. With six dead bodies and more questions than he can process, Spenser begins a search for answers – and the Gray Man.

With its razor-sharp dialogue, crisply etched characters, and high-wire narrative tension, Rough Weather once again proves that 'Robert B. Parker is a force of nature'

Jack Reacher is back, dragged into what looks like a series of grisly serial murders by a team of FBI profilers who aren't totally sure he's not the killer they're looking for, but believe that even if he isn't, he's smart enough to help them find the real killer. And what they've got on the ex-MP, who's starred in three previous Lee Child thrillers (Tripwire, Die Trying, Killing Floor), is enough to ensure his grudging cooperation: phony charges stemming from Reacher's inadvertent involvement in a protection shakedown and the threat of harm to the woman he loves.

The killer's victims have only one thing in common-all of them brought sexual harassment charges against their military superiors and all resigned from the army after winning their cases. The manner, if not the cause, of their deaths is gruesomely the same: they died in their own bathtubs, covered in gallons of camouflage paint, but they didn't drown and they weren't shot, strangled, poisoned, or attacked. Even the FBI forensic specialists can't figure out why they seem to have gone willingly to their mysterious deaths. Reacher isn't sure whether the killings are an elaborate cover-up for corruption involving stolen military hardware or the work of a maniac who's smart enough to leave absolutely no clues behind. This compelling, iconic antihero dead-ends in a lot of alleys before he finally figures it out, but every one is worth exploring and the suspense doesn't let up for a second. The ending will come as a complete surprise to even the most careful reader, and as Reacher strides off into the sunset, you'll wonder what's in store for him in his next adventure.

From Publishers Weekly

Cannell's second novel in six months (after Hollywood Tough) is a cop thriller with a futuristic, sci-fi twist. Hollywood Tough's heroes, LAPD officers Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa Hamilton, take a backseat to a new protagonist, fledgling PI Jack Wirta, a hard-nosed ex-cop (former partner of Scully) who left the force on disability. Irascible and jaded, Wirta has been hooked on Percocet since taking a bullet in the spine during a bank robbery shootout. He is called in to help the eccentric, crusading attorney Herman Strockmeyer, founder of the Institute for Planetary Justice. Strockmeyer has dedicated his professional life to pursuing corrupt corporations and various wings of the government. A houseguest of Barbra Streisand's in L.A., Strockmeyer is suing the USDA, EPA, FDA and others to get an injunction against planting genetically engineered corn, which threatens the Monarch butterfly population. When Strockmeyer's assistant hacks into the computer bank of Gen-A-Tech, a prime contractor in the genetic engineering of agricultural products, he uncovers something much more horrifying than dead butterflies: the Feds are creating a vicious manlike creature to replace human soldiers in combat. And when the assistant is murdered, Strockmeyer and his daughter look to Wirta to save the day. Cannell has a genius for creating memorable characters and quirky, gripping plots. Despite overwriting and jerky pacing, this is a fun read.

Inspector John Rebus has messed up badly this time, so badly that he’s been sent to a kind of reform school for damaged cops. While there among the last-chancers known as “resurrection men,” he joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by three of his classmates. But the group has been assigned an unsolved murder that may have resulted from Rebus’s own mistake. Now Rebus can’t determine if he’s been set up for a fall or if his disgraced classmates are as ruthless as he suspects.

When Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke discovers her investigation of an art dealer’s murder is tied to Rebus’s inquiry, the protégé and mentor join forces. Soon they find themselves in the midst of an even bigger scandal than they had imagined—a plot with conspirators in every corner of Scotland and deadly implications about their colleagues.

With the brilliant eye for character and place that earned him the name “the Dickens of Edinburgh,” Ian Rankin delivers a page-turning novel of intricate suspense.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. No one does steamy suspense like Brown (Chill Factor), as shown by this expert mix of spicy romance and sharply crafted crime drama. Det. Sgt. Duncan Hatcher, a sexy Savannah homicide cop, falls hard for Elise Laird, a dishy damsel-in-distress, the moment he spots her at a police awards dinner. Too bad she's married to Judge Cato Laird, who consistently subverts Hatcher's efforts to bring local drug lord Robert Savich to justice. When Hatcher and his feisty partner, Det. DeeDee Bowen, are called to the Laird home after Elise supposedly shoots an intruder in self-defense, the desperate trophy wife confides to Hatcher that she believes her husband, a secret Savich crony, intended her to be the intruder's victim. Later, as the uncertain Hatcher grapples with his desires, Elise vanishes, leaving behind another dead body. Tight plotting, a hot love story with some nice twists and a credible ending help make this a stand-out thriller. (Aug.)

From The Washington Post

My criteria for book reviewing are pretty clear: Did I believe the characters? Was it a good story, well told? Did I want to put the book down or keep reading? Bottom line, would I read another book by this author?

For Ricochet, my answer to these questions is a resounding yes. It's a great, entertaining read, with lots of surprising twists and turns, credibly flawed characters and a love affair that's as steamy as a Savannah summer.

Hunky yet sensitive Detective Duncan Hatcher is called to investigate the gorgeous and wildly manipulative Elise Laird when she kills a burglar in her elegant home, supposedly in self-defense. Complicating the case is that Mrs. Laird is the trophy wife of a patrician judge who dislikes our hero. Worse, her account of the murder is somewhere between sketchy and laughable.

Hatcher finds himself falling for the mysterious Mrs. Laird, even as he uncovers each new fact that seems to suggest that the murder was intentional and the burglar, Gary Ray Trotter, no stranger. Hatcher doubts Mrs. Laird's increasingly weak explanations, but he still can't help thinking about her body. Here's Mrs. Laird explaining her case to him:

" 'I'd been expecting it for several months. Not a burglary, specifically. But something. This was the moment I'd been dreading.' She pressed her fist against the center of her chest, right above her heart, pulling the fabric of her T-shirt tight across her breasts. 'I knew, Detective. I knew.' Whispering that, she raised her head and looked up at him. 'Gary Ray Trotter wasn't a thief I caught in the act. He was there to kill me.'

" Duncan pinched the bridge of his nose and closed his eyes as though concentrating hard, trying to work out the details in his mind. Actually, he had to do something to keep from drowning in those damn eyes of hers or becoming fixated on her breasts. He wanted to haul her up against him, kiss her, and see if her mouth delivered as promised. Instead, he pinched the skin between his eye sockets until it hurt like hell. It helped him to refocus. Some."

Then he finds out she used to be a topless dancer. How great is that?

You've seen this femme-fatale plotline before, of course, but it's terrific when it's well done, as it is here. Mrs. Laird may be a double-crossing dame, but she's no dummy, though to tell more would ruin the fun. The storyline is updated by the presence of Detective DeeDee Bowen, Hatcher's no-nonsense female partner. Naturally, Bowen suspects every scheming inch of Mrs. Laird and calls Hatcher on his crush with your basic snap-out-of-it speech. Leave it to a woman to add that touch of testosterone.

The cat-and-mouse relationship between Hatcher and Mrs. Laird kept me turning the pages, and when the mystery blonde vanished in the middle of the novel, I found myself worried about her, even though I wasn't sure I liked her or her employment history. Still, I was happy to be kept guessing until the end, which came as a genuine surprise.

My only quibble is that this bestselling author sometimes settles for phrases such as "copious notes" and even "silver-tongued." She's a better writer than that, and I'm enough of a Strunk and White fan to want her to avoid clichés.

But I'm also a Sandra Brown fan, thanks to Ricochet.

Meanwhile, the owner of the charitable NGO that leased the ship suspects that his fleet is being deliberately targeted. But why would pirates be interested in charitable supplies? And how do they know the exact details of his ships' cargo and routes?

Amazon.com Review

Lying on a cot in his cell with Alexandre Dumas's Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine open on his chest, Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter makes his debut in this legendary horror novel, which is even better than its sequel, The Silence of the Lambs. As in Silence, the pulse-pounding suspense plot involves a hypersensitive FBI sleuth who consults psycho psychiatrist Lecter for clues to catching a killer on the loose.

The sleuth, Will Graham, actually quit the FBI after nearly getting killed by Lecter while nabbing him, but fear isn't what bugs him about crime busting. It's just too creepy to get inside a killer's twisted mind. But he comes back to stop a madman who's been butchering entire families. The FBI needs Graham's insight, and Graham needs Lecter's genius. But Lecter is a clever fiend, and he manipulates both Graham and the killer at large from his cell.

That killer, Francis Dolarhyde, works in a film lab, where he picks his victims by studying their home movies. He's obsessed with William Blake's bizarre painting The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun, believing there's a red dragon within him, the personification of his demonic drives. Flashbacks to Dolarhyde's terrifying childhood and superb stream-of-consciousness prose get us right there inside his head. When Dolarhyde does weird things, we understand why. We sympathize when the voice of the cruel dead grandma who raised and crazed him urges him to mayhem-she's way scarier than that old bat in Psycho. When he falls in love with a blind girl at the lab, we hope he doesn't give in to Grandma's violent advice.

This book is awesomely detailed, ingeniously plotted, judiciously gory, and fantastically imagined. If you haven't read it, you've never had the creeps.

"Making his fiction debut, 'Sandford,' a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist using a pseudonym his real name is John Camp, has taken a stock suspense plot-a dedicated cop pursuing an ingenious serial killer-and dressed it up into the kind of pulse-quickening, irresistibly readable thriller that many of the genre's best-known authors would be proud to call their own," stated PW.

From Library Journal

Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, highly touted killer detective, invents intricate video games that he sells for cash. Called in to aid the Minneapolis team scrambling to stop a psychopathic serial woman-slayer, Lucas almost meets his match. The self-styled "mad dog" murderer views his rape/stabbings as a game as well, setting up obstacles for the police, carefully selecting his victims, and priding himself on clever moves. Despite his largely deja vu plot, debut novelist Sandford (also the author of The Fools Run due from Holt in September under the name John Camp; see Prepub Alert, LJ 4/1/89) delivers tense action, chilling excitement, and thrilling suspense. Fast-moving prose and romantic sidelines add a little zest, too. BOMC featured selection.

When John Rain decides to get out of the business, his hand is forced by rogue CIA operative Jim Hilger. Hilger kidnaps Dox, Rain's trusted partner and closest friend, and offers Rain a choice: carry out a final assignment, or bear the responsibility for Dox's murder.

For a professional like John Rain, the choice ought to be easy: Do the job-a series of three hits-then walk away. But how does Rain know Jim Hilger won't kill Dox anyway, once the assignment is complete? How does he know that each of the hits isn't simultaneously a setup for Rain himself? And what will he do when he finds out that among the targets of this lethal game of extortion is someone else Rain cares about deeply?

From the urban canyons of Silicon Valley and New York to the lush forests of Bali, the boulevards of Paris, and the old killing fields of Vietnam, Rain must grapple with his age, his enemies, and most of all, his conscience in a battle that not even Rain-"the stuff great characters are made of" (Entertainment Weekly)-can hope to survive intact.

Reckless Abandon

Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington tracks a mobster hiding deep inside the witness protection program in this next thriller in the New York Times-bestselling series.

Stone Barrington is, once again, right at home in New York City; but this time he is joined by the tenacious Holly Barker from Orchid Blues, the lady police chief of Orchid Island, Florida. In Reckless Abandon, Holly finally makes it to Manhattan, hot on the trail of an evil fugitive from her jurisdiction. Stone is, well, glad to see her, right up until the moment when her presence creates a great danger to both of them-and to their surprise, she becomes the pursued, not the pursuer.

From Publishers Weekly

It's double the pleasure and double the fun as Woods brings series character Holly Barker, chief of the Orchid Beach, Fla., police department (of Orchid Blues, etc.), onstage to co-star with PI Stone Barrington (of Dirty Work, etc.) in his latest adventure. Holly's come to New York hot on the trail of Trini Rodriguez, a bad guy she thought she'd stabbed to death in an earlier adventure. He's currently wanted for (among other things) blowing up a dozen people by hiding bombs in the caskets of two of his earlier victims and detonating them at the funeral. But finding him won't be so simple: he's been placed in the FBI Witness Protection Program and is working with the Feds and the CIA to catch an Arab terrorist group trying to employ the Mafia in a money-laundering scheme. Shortly after Holly takes up residence in Stone's guest room, the two of them are hip deep in the dangerous caseâ€"and likewise each other. They go at it so often it's hard to say what's going to kill Stone first: the Mafia, Arab terrorists or the athletic, all-night sex. Cross-pollinating all these characters from various books makes for some heavy-handed background exposition at times, but readers with no previous experience will still enjoy this amusing, full-throttle sex and crime romp. Stone's ex-partner and best pal, Dino Bachetti, head of the detective squad at the 19th precinct, sums up Stone's appeal, and that of the entire series, when he says of his friend: "Wherever you go, people drop dead, and women take off their underwear." That's it in a nutshell.

Lou Manfredo's acclaimed debut novel, Rizzo's War, brought the streets of Brooklyn to life in a way that no New York City crime novel has before-full of the details, the sounds, the sights of walking a beat in Bensonhurst. Now in Rizzo's Fire, as twenty-year veteran Joe Rizzo edges closer to retirement, things only seem to get harder: having promised his wife he'd quit smoking, he's working the most baffling case of his career, with a new partner to boot.

Robert Lauria was practically a hermit, and was dead ten days before anyone found him. Fired from his job as a shoe salesman weeks ago, he rarely left his apartment and had no visitors except his cousin, who says she hardly knew him. So who strangled him late one night as he made tea in the kitchen in his pajamas? And could there be a connection to the headline-grabbing murder of a Broadway producer a day earlier? Rizzo and his new partner, Priscilla Jackson, carefully comb through the life of this forgotten man, even though the case has already been put on the back burner by their superiors. And what they find will surprise everyone.

Armed with more street smarts than the FBI agents assigned to the more glamorous case, Rizzo and his new partner Priscilla Jackson are tasked with navigating the twin labyrinths of the truth and NYPD politics in order to find the killer and bring him to justice.

From the New York Times best-selling author Joe Weber comes a thrilling novel of the Vietnam War.


Marine pilot Brad Austin and his carrier-based F-4 Phantom group fly into the heart of enemy territory daily without fear, but the rules of engagement hinder them nearly as much as the North Vietnamese. Restricted from attacking the enemy's MiG bases, Austin and the other American pilots are vulnerable to attack without the ability to retaliate, a weakness that tragically leads to the death of Austin's wingman.

So when he decides to take a year out to write something of quality, a novel that will win prizes and critical acclaim, a lot of people stand to lose their livelihoods.

Now Houston, the prime suspect in his wife’s murder, has disappeared. He owns a boat and has a pilot’s licence — he could be anywhere and there are many who’d like to find him.

First there’s the police. If he’s innocent, why did he flee? Then again, maybe he was set up by one of his enemies. The scenario reads like the plot of one of Houston’s million-copy-selling thrillers...

Headline in the San Francisco Chronicle: Terrorists Take Over Nuclear Plant!


Nick Connor, an elite ex-Special Forces operative and the head of NeXus, a private security company with ties to the highest levels of government, refused to confirm that his detailed and secret report on the security capabilities at The Headlands Nuclear Power Plant was stolen and believed to be in the hands of terrorists who have infiltrated the plant. Sources close to the company have confirmed that an undercover expert on nuclear operations and security, known only as "the Old Man," is working with NeXus to find a way into the plant undetected to locate and disarm bombs the terrorists are threatening to detonate. Government officials warn of the potential spread of deadly radioactive contamination along the California coast. FBI and local law enforcement are on the scene.

Set in today's highly controversial commercial nuclear power industry, Red North! brings to life the eerily believable story of when nuclear fission, used to create electricity, becomes a weapon for an unidentified organization seeking to destabilize an entire industry for their own gain.

This fast paced book is rich in detail and facts that few people know. When the Twin Trade Towers fell on 9/11, all doubt about terrorism within our borders was permanently erased. The March 2011 destruction of four nuclear reactors at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan, and the "incident" at Chernobyl in April 1986, demonstrate that nuclear disasters are possible and capable of wreaking chaos on a worldwide scale.

North Korea has one of the world's largest standing armies, capable of unleashing a massive arsenal of chemical and nuclear weapons. With an unstable government, under absolute dictator Kim Jong-un, North Korea more closely resembles an organized crime ring than a real nation-state. Millions live on the edge of starvation while Pyongyang's ruthless generals, crooked bureaucrats, and vicious secret police wage a covert war against each other to expand their rival fiefdoms. RED PHOENIX BURNING explores the implosion of this corrupt regime — a coup that triggers a bloody civil war among the North's brutal factions. The world is dragged into a violent and rapidly widening confrontation amid North Korea's shattered ruins, bringing it to the edge of an all-out war that could engulf the entire civilized world.


Fans of the original RED PHOENIX will be delighted to see favorite characters like Colonel Kevin Little, Brigadier General Tony Christopher, and Colonel Rhee Han-Gil returning to battle, older and wiser, alongside a new cast of heroes and villains. RED PHOENIX BURNING will also offer readers a deeper look behind today's headlines of turmoil and uncertainty — a look made all the more profound by the in-depth knowledge of war, military technology, and geopolitics brought to bear by Larry Bond and his co-author Chris Carlson.

Across the small void, he saw the pilot’s eyes peer over his mask. Dark, chilling eyes… Wilson kicked right rudder to slide closer and jam any chance for a bandit gunshot. When the bandit pulled all the way over, almost on its back but in control, he cursed in frustration at what he knew was coming next. The hostile fighter reversed over the top in a negative-g maneuver, his nose tracking down on Wilson like a falling sledgehammer in slow motion. Horrified, Wilson realized he faced an imminent snapshot. With the little air speed he had, his inverted his Hornet to avoid the attack. His aircraft still rolling, Wilson saw that the monster had another weapon at its disposal…

обложка книги Ripple Ripple

It began in Ethiopia, hundreds of thousands of years ago. When a handful of genetic mutations caused evolution to split from the primates. And mankind was born.

Now, eons later, evidence of more splits from the apes are being unearthed. And with them, a disturbing realization. Ours was only one of many.

And yet we survived. But it was not by luck or chance. We survived because humans had something the others did not. A unique ingredient that has only now been rediscovered.

First in the mountains of South America, where it was promptly destroyed by the Chinese. And now a second source in Africa. The epicenter of mankind's very inception.

A place that John Clay and Alison Shaw must find quickly. Because the Russians already know what we are searching for. And the Chinese want back what is rightfully theirs.

The mother of all secrets awaits the world, in Africa. One that will not only explain who we are, but will decipher the very code within our own DNA.

Deux coqs vivaient en paix… Une petite bourgeoise vient troubler l'existence de François Givet, un peintre homosexuel en ménage avec Riton, garçon sympathique, qui le protège farouchement. Ce jeune prolo, mi-voyou, mi-ange gardien, feint de s'amuser de cette liaison naissante et, à ses yeux, contre nature, entre son ami et cette doctoresse trop séduisante pour être honnête. En réalité, Riton a peur et pressent un drame imminent. Une lutte sourde se déclare entre ces trois personnages. Et voilà la guerre allumée… Derrière l'intrigue criminelle, les doubles jeux et les mensonges, Frédéric Dard dévoile avec une extraordinaire acuité le drame intime d'un homme qui n'aime pas les femmes et fait preuve d'une intuition pénétrante dans un domaine qui lui est, a priori, étranger.

An unknown enemy wreaks havoc in the South China Sea while blaming the destruction on Jonah Blackwell and the crew of the Scorpion, forcing them to untangle a deadly conspiracy rooted in a lost technology from World War II.


May 6, 1945: A German submarine U-3531 disappears en route to mainland Japan, taking with her a weapon that could have changed the course of the war.


Present day: Salvage diver turned submarine captain Jonah Blackwell and his unproven crew resurface on a mission of mercy, secreting starving refugees from the brutal North Korean regime as a hundred-year winter ravages the northern Pacific. Hunted by the Japanese fleet and forced to surrender, the crew of the Scorpion are blackmailed into investigating a mysteriously quarantined DPRK submarine base. As chaos erupts across the East China Sea, the crew of the Scorpion find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens to reshape the entire region. Now his crew must race against time in an adventure spanning the irradiated waters of Fukushima, flood-beset Tokyo metropolis and the crumbling tropical remains of a secret Japanese research facility. At the center of it all is an enigmatic technology cult with roots in the clandestine weapons program of the Second World War — a cult that has waited seventy years to strike its final blow.

Dublin, 1963. Au moment où le président Kennedy prépare son voyage officiel en Irlande, des meurtres de ressortissants étrangers viennent perturber le sommeil du ministre de la Justice.

On a découvert le cadavre d’un Allemand accompagné d’une note destinée au colonel Otto Skorzeny, le chef de commando préféré d’Hitler, qui vit paisiblement sur le sol irlandais et a mis au point des filières d’exfiltration d’anciens nazis, les « ratlines ». Manifestement quelqu’un s’en prend aux criminels de guerre. Individus isolés ou groupes organisés ?

Peu désireux de voir un scandale s’ébruiter, le ministre de la Justice charge l’un de ses meilleurs officiers de renseignements, le lieutenant Albert Ryan, de faire toute la lumière sur les crimes. Plus facile à dire qu’à faire. A mesure qu’il enquête, Ryan va non seulement craindre pour sa vie à plusieurs reprises mais aussi se retrouver face à un terrible cas de conscience.


Stuart Neville vit en Irlande du Nord dans le comté d’Armagh. Il a remporté le Los Angeles Times Book Prize et le Prix Mystère de la critique pour Les Fantômes de Belfast. Il démontre avec Ratlines qu’il n’a rien perdu de son formidable sens de l’action et des rebondissements.

The locals on the quiet island stubbornly focus their gaze on one manloner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But when police insist on opening the investigation a veil of suspicion and fear is thrown over the entire community. For the first time in years, Catherines neighbours nervously lock their doors, whilst a killer lives on in their midst.

The pseudonymous Coyle's strong 9th coffeehouse mystery (after 2009's Holiday Grind) pays tribute to New York City firefighters. Clare Cosi, the head barista at Village Blend; Blend owner Madame Dreyfus Allegro Dubois (who's Clare's ex-mother-in-law); and Blend employee Dante Silva narrowly escape death in the bomb-activated blaze that destroys Enzo Testa's Caffe Lucia in Queens and seriously injures Enzo. Clare informs the irritating, overly flirtatious FDNY captain, Michael Quinn, a cousin of her NYPD detective boyfriend, Mike Quinn, that she suspects arson. As fire marshal Stuart Rossi swings into action, Clare is eager to help catch the firebug (aka the Coffee Shop Arsonist), but Rossi is less than enthusiastic about her getting involved. Later, the arsonist torches a Long Island coffeehouse, killing a firefighter, as a warning. While the media worry that a terrorist is loose, new, even more horrible crimes surface. Coyle (the wife-husband writing team of Alice Alfonsi and Marc Cerasini) provides an appendix of useful tips and tempting recipes.

Nie przypuszczał jednak, że ktoś mógłby porwać go, tym bardziej z toru, tuż po zwycięstwie w Cheltenham Gold Cup! Gdy to się stało, długo nikt nie miał pojęcia, kto i dlaczego uprowadził Brittena.

Es ist ein heißes Rennen, das George Juliard antritt, denn seine Rivalen haben Kaliber. Zunächst geht es um die Wahl ins Unterhaus, später um das Amt des Premierministers. Juliards Handicap: Er ist Witwer und hat keine lächelnde Frau zur Seite. Diese Lücke kann jedoch sein 17jähriger Sohn füllen. Den kennt er zwar kaum, da er ihn nicht selbst aufgezogen hat, doch nun soll Benjamin seine erfolglose Amateurjockeykarriere abbrechen, um ihn auf seiner Tour durch den Wahlkreis zu begleiten. Ben ist nicht begeistert von dieser Aufgabe, fügt sich aber dem Willen des Vaters.

Was sich wie ein Kinderspiel anläßt, entpuppt sich innerhalb weniger Tage als gefährliches Unternehmen, denn der Stimmenfang wird nicht nur mit legalen Mitteln geführt. Lückenbüßer und Vorzeigesöhnchen Ben muß schon bald eine neue Rolle übernehmen: die des Leibwächters.

Der Wahlzirkus - ein wohlbekanntes Schauspiel, von Wahlhelfern und Medien inszeniert. Doch Dick Francis führt uns hinter die Kulissen, dahin, wo der Rummel in seiner Unmenschlichkeit und die Akteure in ihrer Menschlichkeit zu sehen sind - wo sich inmitten des dröhnenden Spektakels mit seinen hinterhältigen Intrigen leise eine Beziehung zwischen Vater und Sohn entwickelt.

Neid und Zuneigung, Ehrgeiz und Loyalität, dies sind die Gefühle, die der Meister des Thrillers einmal mehr gegeneinander antreten läßt. Und am Ende haben die Helden ihre Auszeichnungen genauso verdient wie Dick Francis die seinen.

A message begging for help…Her husband will not tell the truth: where he goes, what he does, how long he will be away. For days on end she waits and when he returns she must endure his wants, his moods, his threats. But enough is enough.

She will find out the truth, no matter the cost to him – or to herself. In Copenhagen's cold cases division Carl Morck has received a bottle. It holds an old and decayed message, written in blood.

It is a cry for help from two boys. Is it real?

    Но во сне Сандугаш никогда не была собой. Она была жертвами. Ими всеми. И бесполезно, наверняка бесполезно искать в Интернете эту рыжую Анну. В рыжий она выкрасилась в день смерти. Какого цвета волосы у нее были до того – Сандугаш не знает. А главное – о пропавших взрослых редко пишут. Вот про детей – да. А про взрослых – только если родственники поднимают переполох. Но чтобы искать, надо хотя бы знать, какой это город… Где знаменитый кремль? Кроме Москвы?»

  •  Опасный дом
     Баркли Линвуд
     Детективы и Триллеры, Детектив,

    Семья учителя из маленького городка Терри Арчера переживала не лучшие времена: четырнадцатилетняя Грэйс отчаянно бунтовала, а сам Терри и его жена Синтия все больше отдалялись друг от друга… В общем, обычные горести обычных людей.

    А потом случилась беда – и эти обычные горести отступили на второй план.

    В результате нелепой подростковой выходки Грэйс стала свидетельницей жестокого преступления… И теперь не только она, но и ее родители оказались втянуты в запутанную историю ограблений и кровавых убийств.

    Обратиться в полицию они не могут, и выживать придется, рассчитывая только на себя.

    Загадки Кэри Локк - 1



    В книге «СЛЕД смерти», Кэри Локк, детектив отдела пропавших без вести в подразделении полиции Лос-Анджелеса по-прежнему расследует похищение собственной дочери, пропавшей много лет назад. Все еще одержимая ее поисками, Кэри забывается единственным доступным способом: с головой погружаясь в дела пропавших без вести в полиции Лос-Анджелеса.

    Обычный телефонный звонок от беспокойной матери школьницы, задержавшейся на два часа после уроков, следует игнорировать. Но что-то в голосе матери трогает Кэри, и она решает начать расследование.

    То, что она находит, шокирует ее. Пропавшая дочь сенатора скрывала тайны, о которых никто не знал. Когда все улики указывают на то, что девушка сбежала, Кэри приказывают прекратить расследование. И все же, несмотря на давление со стороны начальства и средств массовой информации, несмотря на то, что все зацепки ведут в тупик, блестящая и одержимая Кэри отказывается бросить девушку на произвол судьбы. Она знает, что у нее есть только 48 часов, если она хочет вернуть эту девушку живой.

     Гоукінз Пола
     Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер

    Затон Утоплениць біля тихого англійського містечка. Над ним — стрімка скеля, з якої протягом століть стрибали чи просто падали в темну воду жінки. Письменниця Нел Ебботт, зачарована моторошними переказами та легендами, починає писати роман про це місце… А потім її тіло знаходять у затоні. Ведеться розслідування, і невдовзі стає зрозуміло, що мешканці містечка щось приховують. Їхню свідомість віками отруює зло, яке ховається в обтяжених чорними таємницями водах затону. Кожен із цих людей має свою зловісну таємницю. Чи встигне детектив Шон Таунсенд розгадати її до того, як вода затону прийме у свої глибини нову жертву?


  •  Эксгумация
     Литт Тоби
     Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер

    «Эксгумация» — превосходный психологический триллер одного из наиболее ярких представителей современной британской прозы. Роман, написанный Тоби Литтом в 2000 году, стал бестселлером в Великобритании и многих других странах. Главный герой книги, Конрад, подвергается нападению киллера в момент встречи со своей подругой-моделью Лили в фешенебельном лондонском ресторане. Лили погибает, сам Конрад оказывается в коме. Как только силы возвращаются к нему, он, с умением искушенного опытом детектива, начинает свое собственное расследование. Банальное выражение «грязное белье» не идет ни в какое сравнение с теми пластами кладбищенской грязи, которую раскапывает Конрад.

Центром її життя завжди був син Даніель, кожна мить його дорослішання, плани на майбутнє і перші успіхи, які він ділив лише з нею… Доки не зустрів свою нову подружку. Чи не надто швидко прив’язала до себе її Даніеля ця красуня з гострим, як лезо, відчуттям справедливості?.. Лауру застерігали: не втручайся в ці стосунки. Але вона зробила помилку. І не могла навіть уявити, чим заплатить за неї…
