Daudzi rakstnieki mēdz uzsvērt, ka grāmatā attēlotie notikumi novēroti dzīvē, ka varoņu prototipi (gan ar citiem vārdiem un uzvārdiem) dzīvo un strādā mūsu vidū. Šoreiz autors uz­skata par savu pienākumu apliecināt, ka dar­bības vietu izvēlējies nejauši, sižetu izgudrojis, tāpēc iespējamā adrešu un vārdu sakritība jāuzskata par sagadīšanos, tā nekādā ziņā nav attiecināma ne uz Ventspili, ne uz ventspil­niekiem.

обложка книги Vas-y, Béru ! Vas-y, Béru !

Quand la première salve est servie, on enclenche un deuxième chargeur. Le temps prend son temps dans ma tronche, bien que le mitrailleur fasse fissa. Je pense avec une incroyable lucidité. Je me dis des trucs, des choses, des machins. Je devine les mouvements de notre agresseur comme si je le voyais. J'ai entendu un cri et je sais qu'un de mes compagnons a été touché. Je passe la main sous ma veste afin de dégager mon excellent camarade Tu-tues de sa gaine. Faut agir mollo pour éviter d'émettre un bruit qui me situerait. Je n'y vois que tchi. Faut que j'attende la deuxième seringuée afin de situer le tireur. Dangereux, car en v'là un qui semble vouloir faire le ménage complet.

Je n'ai, jusqu'à ce jour, reçu que deux lettres de Sa Majesté britannique Elisabeth II.

La première date de plusieurs années et concerne mon livre « BAISE-BALL À LA BAULE ».

La chère souveraine m'y faisait quelques remontrances parce que j'y avais assez lourdement brocardé un membre de sa royale family.

L'envoi de deux douzaines de roses rouges (nous n'étions pas encore en régime socialiste), accompagnant un billet d'excuses, me valut son absolution.

Mais voici que la cousine récidive, ayant entendu parler du présent ouvrage.

Grâce à une indiscrétion de ma femme de ménage, elle me pria, par l'intermédiaire de l'ambassadeur de Grande-Bretagne à Berne, de lui adresser une copie de mon manuscrit.

Je le fis.

Ce qui motiva la seconde lettre royale.

Madame Deux s'y déclare indignée de la manière dont je traite l'Intelligence Service dans ces pages et me somme de ne pas publier cette œuvrette.

Passant outre cet interdit, mon éditeur et moi avons décidé de la faire paraître tout de même.

обложка книги Victory and Honor Victory and Honor

Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions. To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring-and great danger-but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.

обложка книги Vortex Vortex

In the bestselling "Red Phoenix", Larry Bond showed, in a world of explosive uncertainty, what a new Korean War would be like. Now, in VORTEX, he takes his storytelling powers one astonishing step further in an epic novel set in one of the most emotionally charged global flashpoints today - South Africa. As the forces of white supremacy make their last ruthless stand, as chaos threatens an entire continent, and as the world is faced with Armageddon itself, America mobilizes Operation Brave Fortune, a full-scale war effort it will wage on land, at sea, in the air...

Visions Of Sugar Plums

Faltan cuatro días para Navidad y las cosas no se ven alegres para la cazarrecompensas Stephanie Plum. No tiene árbol. No ha comprado ningún regalo. Las tiendas están llenas hasta los topes de compradores. No hay ninguna luz centelleando en su apartamento. Y un extraño está en su cocina.

Claro que esto ya le ha ocurrido a Stephanie Plum antes. Los desconocidos, bichos raros, criminales, arrastrados y lunáticos de siempre encuentran sin problemas el camino a su puerta. Pero este tipo es diferente. Este tipo es misterioso, sexualmente atractivo… y tiene sus propios planes. Su nombre es Diesel y es un hombre con una misión. Diesel es diferente a cualquiera que Stephanie haya conocido en su vida. La pregunta es, ¿qué quiere de ella? ¿Le puede ayudar a encontrar al pequeño viejo fabricante de juguetes que ha roto su libertad bajo fianza antes de Navidad? ¿Puede sobrevivir él a la cena del día de fiesta de la familia Plum? ¿Puede traerle a Stephanie un árbol que no tenga aspecto de haber crecido al lado de una central nuclear? Estas preguntas y otras más la mantienen despierta por la noche. Por no mencionar que necesita encontrar a un montón de desagradables elfos, su hermana Valerie tiene una?sorpresa? de Navidad para los Plum, su sobrina Mary Alice ya no cree en Santa, y la abuela Mazur tiene un nuevo semental.

Así es que saca el reno plástico, ata las campanillas, y alístate para celebrar los días de fiesta? al estilo de Jersey. Visiones de Sugar Plums? ¡el mundo de Plum nunca ha sido más alegre!

Люся и Василиса – сыщицы со стажем. На их счету не одно мастерски раскрытое преступление. Но в милиции уверены: тетки просто-напросто лезут не в свое дело, создают проблемы, да еще и жизнью рискуют! Конечно, рискуют – иначе отчего у Василисы все лицо в синяках? Так ведь бандиты разукрасили! Подруги опять бегут впереди паровоза, то бишь следственных органов: раз убили хозяйку парикмахерской, нужно выяснить, кто и за что. Ради того, чтобы собрать информацию, они готовы пожертвовать даже собственной красотой и сделать в подозрительной парикмахерской прическу… Сыщицы своего добились – теперь их пугаются даже преступники! Но расследование от этого быстрее не идет – все время мешает милиция…

обложка книги Vor dem Tod sind alle gleich Vor dem Tod sind alle gleich

Peter Tremayne ist das Pseudonym eines anerkannten Historikers, der sich auf die versunkene Kultur der Kelten spezialisiert hat.

In seinen im 7. Jahrhundert spielenden historischen Romanen löst Schwester Fidelma, eine irische Nonne von königlichem Geblüt und gleichzeitig Anwältin bei Gericht, auf kluge und selbstbewußte Art die schwierigsten Fälle. Wegen des großen internationalen Erfolgs seiner Serie um Schwester Fidelma wurde Peter Tremayne 2002 zum Ehrenmitglied der Irish Literary Society auf Lebenszeit ernannt.

Schwester Fidelma ist ins Reich des Königs von Laigin geeilt, um Bruder Eadulf, ihrem engsten Freund und Vertrauten, zu helfen, der dort unter Mordverdacht steht. Schon am nächsten Morgen soll er gehängt werden. Fidelma, fest von seiner Unschuld überzeugt, versucht erst einmal, Berufung gegen das offenbar vorschnell ausgesprochene Todesurteil einzulegen. Doch die Mächtigen in der Stadt und der großen Abtei haben viel zu verbergen und zeigen größeres Interesse an Eadulfs Tod als an der Wahrheit. Ein Fall, bei dem es für Fidelma um alles oder nichts geht.

Schwester Fidelma und Bruder Eadulf sind seit kurzem verheiratet. Allerdings gibt es nach altirischem Brauch dafür ein Probejahr. Beide wurden von einem Freund Eadulfs in die Aldreds Abtei eingeladen. Als sie dort eintreffen, finden sie den Freund ermordet. In der Abtei gehen seltsame Dinge vor: Die Totenmesse für Eadulfs Freund wird durch einen weiteren Zwischenfall gestört, im nahen Moor spukt der Geist einer toten Frau. Dieser Geist soll sogar der fieberkranken Fidelma erschienen sein. Einer der Klosterbrüder hat es mit eigenen Augen gesehen. Im Kloster wird es zunehmend gefährlich, zudem der Abt Fidelma nun auch noch der Hexerei anklagt.

1711 год.

Десять лет не прекращается война. Аббат Мелани, секретный агент Людовика XIV, прибывает в Вену. Он узнает о заговоре против императора Иосифа I.

Но кто готовится нанести смертельный удар? Брат, мечтающий о троне, или коварные иезуиты? Вероломные англичане или турки, извечные враги империи?

Разгадка кроется в таинственном сообщении турецкого посла. Пытаясь расшифровать это сообщение, помощники аббата гибнут один за другим.

Впервые на пути агента Людовика XIV оказался столь безжалостный противник.

Fünf Kriminalgeschichten, in denen Elizabeth George ihr ganzes meisterhaftes Können entfaltet: Vom plötzlichen Touristentod im Herrenhaus bis zur Tragödie einer jungen Witwe, vom mörderisch eifersüchtigen Ehemann oder dem kleinen Schullehrer mit fiesem Karrieretick bis zu einem veritablen Spukhaus in bester Wohnlage. Dazu liefert die Autorin jeweils ihre ganz persönliche »Geschichte zur Geschichte«, die sich mitunter selbst wie ein Krimi liest.

Dick Francis "Versteck",originaltitel: "High Stakes".

Ist es nicht mysteriös, daß Favorit Energise immer dann verliert, wenn Besitzer Steven Scott besonders hoch gewettet hat? Zufall? Scott ist blind den Tips seines Trainers Jody Leeds gefolgt. Denn vom Rennsport versteht er wenig, seine eigenen Vierbeiner kann er kaum auseinanderhalten. Ein Vertrauen, das leicht mißbraucht werden kann… Als schließlich ein Buchmacher nach dem anderen Bankrott macht, ist klar, daß Betrüger am Werk sind.

Scott spielt nicht länger mit. Er beschließt, den Gaunern das Handwerk zu legen, und riskiert dabei Kopf und Kragen.»Längst sprengen die subtilen Romane des ehemals erfolgreichsten englischen Jockeys die Grenzen des Krimigenres, längst fasziniert Dick Francis mit wunderbarer Erzählgabe, fesselnden Plots und liebevollem Lokalkolorit Millionen von Fans. Nach der Lektüre von Dick Francis' Thrillern spürt der Leser ein Vakuum — und freut sich auf den nächsten Roman.«

So the Saint pledged himself to a vendetta which took him to Sicily, a land particularly suited to that ancient bloody custom.

From then on, except for an interlude with a luscious Italian pasta named Gina, it was all-out, heel-stomping war, with the Robin Hood of Modern Crime pitted against the arch-evil, centuries-old traditions of the Mafia!

обложка книги Vanished Vanished

Lauren Heller and her husband Roger, a brilliant executive at a major corporation, are attacked in a Georgetown parking lot after an evening out. Knocked unconscious by the assailants, Lauren lies in a coma in the hospital while her husband has vanished without a trace.

With nowhere else to turn, Lauren's teenage son Gabe reaches out to his uncle, Nick Heller, a high-powered investigator with a corporate intelligence firm in Washington, D.C. Having returned to town on the next available flight, Nick finds Lauren conscious, the police skeptical and his older brother Roger still missing.

Nick and Roger have been on the outs since the arrest, trial and conviction of their father, the notorious 'fugitive financier,' Victor Heller. Whereas Roger chose to follow in their father's footsteps and join the corporate world, Nick instead rebelled. He enlisted in the Special Forces and later he served in a highly secretive intelligence unit in the Pentagon.

Now working for one of the most respected firms of corporate 'fixers,' Nick's looking into his brother's disappearance unexpectedly pits him against the interests of some extremely influential forces in Washington, including his own boss. With few allies and many enemies, Nick is forced to seek help where he can – including from his own despised father, still in prison in upstate New York. Nick finds himself on a collision course with one of the most powerful and secretive corporations in the world, whose minions will stop at nothing to protect the secrets that Nick Heller is determined to uncover – secrets that reach into the highest levels of the government…and may get Nick and everyone he's trying to protect killed.

“With Voracious, Alice Henderson has created a gripping, atavistic supernatural thriller, a sexy, sensuous, and terrifying dark fantasy. It’s breathtaking and merciless, and I can’t wait to see what she does for an encore.”

– Christopher Golden,

Bram Stoker Award-winning author

“Heralds the arrival of a major new talent in the dark fiction field. Henderson brings tremendous tension, suspense, and atmosphere with this modern twist on the shape-shifter tale. This is one cool book.”-J. A. Konrath, author of the Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels mystery series

“A terrific debut. Alice Henderson has the talent to evoke nature as an extraordinarily potent force that is nothing short of breathtaking. [Her] vivid evocation of wilderness places is superb in this page-turning story. A writer to watch.”

– Simon Clark,

British Fantasy Award-winning author

“A polished and well-focused novel of raw animal terror. It pits a gutsy, outdoors-loving protagonist against an alluring, shape-shifting demon out of time who lusts not only for her flesh, but also for her extraordinary talent. Alice Henderson deftly crafts her own convincing mythology while telling a compelling, page-turning adventure that makes Glacier National Park itself into a character. Offering crisp action and tingly eroticism, Voracious also boasts an environmental subtext blended with astute philosophical explorations of the predator-prey symbiosis. Henderson’s first novel is both accomplished and a shining promise of more to come. A winner!”-William D. Gagliani, author of Wolf’s Trap and Shadowplays

“You will tear through this book the way Alice Henderson’s monstrous creature tears through its prey. A combination of awe-inspiring setting and deeply personal terror, Voracious is irresistible.”-Richard Dansky, author of Firefly Rain

Un’agghiacciante incursione nel lato più oscuro dell’assistenza sanitaria, nel fatidico incrocio tra il valore supremo dell’esistenza umana e i cinici interessi del mondo finanziario, capace di subordinare la vita e la morte alla pericolosa seduzione del denaro. Dopo lunghi anni trascorsi nei corridoi di un grande ospedale di Boston, Angela e David Wilson, un’affiatata coppia di medici, decidono di abbandonare la frenesia della metropoli per trasferirsi, con la figlioletta Nikki gracile e malata, in campagna, in una tranquilla cittadina del Vermont. La bellezza e la serenità del luogo, insieme all’affettuosa accoglienza dei suoi abitanti, appaiono un sogno divenuto realtà, destinato a infondere un’ondata di entusiasmo alle loro esistenze: verdi distese di prati, laghi cristallini incastonati in una cornice incantevole di montagne, al posto dell’inquinamento e della criminalità della città. E, nello stesso tempo, si profila per entrambi i coniugi la possibilità di lavorare in un centro gestito in modo dinamico e moderno, dotato di attrezzature all’avanguardia. Ma dopo il primo magnifico, romantico autunno, a Bartlet comincia a profilarsi un paesaggio spoglio e desolato, che rivela, dietro i tristi scheletri degli alberi, oscure e macabre macchinazioni...

A poco a poco, poi a un ritmo sempre più rapido, il paradiso terrestre dei Wilson si sgretola: numerosi pazienti con strani sintomi cominciano a morire misteriosamente, inquietanti trame si nascondono nelle stanze del loro ospedale; un incubo mortale li minaccia... Coinvolti in un sistema medico criminale, nel quale la polizia non intende indagare, Angela e David dovranno combattere con le loro sole forze per non essere travolti dall’orrore e salvaguardare così la felicità della loro famiglia.

'The summer had been long hot and bloody. Fall, with its cooler temperatures was coming. Maybe people wouldn't be as inclined to kill each other. But she doubted it.' Eve Dallas' latest homicide case is a particularly vicious case. A young mother, Elisa Maplewood, is found raped and strangled in the park, her body naked but for what appears to be a red ribbon tied around her neck. As Eve starts investigating Elisa's friends and relations, an offer of help comes from an unlikely source. The only reason Eve agrees to meet with psychic Celina Sanchez is that she is a friend of a friend. But Celina claims to have experienced visions of the killer and can recite precise details of the case – details that the police have kept to themselves. She is also no glory-hunter – she doesn't want her name released to the media. Haunted by the visions of death that she sees, all she wants to do is help Eve catch the criminal so that she is left in peace. Though Eve remains sceptical of Celina's abilities, she serves the greater good, and she will use all the resources she can to track down the killer before he strikes again…

"exciting and mesmerizing crime thriller"

Boston Homicide Detective Jane Rizzoli is about to give birth but she still performs her job by testifying against a man she arrested. The man goes berserk and Jane gets off the witness stand, restrains and cuffs him. Her water breaks and she goes to the hospital where her doctor sends her to Diagnostic Imaging for an ultra sound. In another part of the hospital, a Jane Doe kills a security guard and ends up in Diagnostic Imaging where she keeps Jane and five other people hostage.

The Feds take over the operation citing national security reasons and before the hostage situation ends the woman and her accomplice is dead. The Feds confiscate the notes and all evidence related to the two dead people. The last thing that the woman says to Jane is "Mila knows". The woman is traced back to a house where five women were murdered, four of whom w were kept against their will in a white slavery ring. Even though Jane just gave birth she is determined to find Mila and expose the people running the ring who erase all traces of their existence when things get too hot.

The Jane Doe was found in the morgue by Medical Examiner Maura Isles. The woman was declared dead when she was fished out of the ocean but revived when she warmed up. She is determined to make her story known to the American people even though people highly placed in law enforcement and government won't be stopped until she is dead. Jane is determined to find out her motivation because during the takedown of the hostages, actions were taken that didn't make sense.

Tess Gerritsen writes another exciting and mesmerizing crime thriller that is frightening because it is based on fact. VANISH is the type of novel that is written only rarely, one that appeals to reads who like plenty of action and realistic characters in their novels material. The love between Jane and her husband Gabriel, an FBI agent is so strong that it adds heart and soul to a work that would otherwise have too much tension for the plot to sustain.

Two brothers race to stop a political mastermind’s massive bioterrorist plot in this terrifying espionage thriller.

In remote pockets of the Third World, a deadly virus is quietly sweeping through impoverished farming villages and shanty towns with frightening speed and potency. Meanwhile, in Washington, a three-word message left in a safe-deposit box may be the key to stopping the crisis—if, that is, Charles Mallory, a private intelligence contractor and former CIA operative, can decipher the puzzle before time runs out.

What Mallory begins to discover are the traces of a secret war, with a bold objective—to create a new, technologically advanced society. With the help of his brother Jon, an investigative reporter, can he break the story to the world before it is too late—before a planned ‘humane depopulation’ takes place?

As the stakes and strategies of this secret war become more evident, the Mallory brothers find themselves in a complex game of wits with an enemy they can't see: a new sort of superpower led by a brilliant, elusive tactician who believes that ends justify means.

The first novel to be translated into English from one of Japan's rising literary stars; a tale of murder and desperation set in a desolate seaside town, in online chat rooms and love hotels – with a cast of characters all pushed to the razor's edge.

January 6, 2002. The body of a female insurance saleswoman is found in the southernmost region of Japan, at a spot rumored to be a home to ghosts. Shortly thereafter Yuichi, a young construction worker, is arrested by the Nagasaki police on suspicion of murder. What then unfolds – from multiple points of view – are the events that led up to and follow the murder, as Yuichi and his lover try to elude the police. Moving back and forth in time, the riveting narrative tells the stories of the victim, the murderer, and their families – people of all classes, occupations, economic levels, and emotional situations – stories that come together to give us a unique, visceral, and indelible sense of contemporary Japanese society.

Here is the first appearance in English of a writer who is poised to electrify the American reading public.

Estamos en 1987. Simultáneamente y en dos lugares distintos -Irlanda y Estados Unidos- se produce un acontecimiento similar: sendas muchachas quedan embarazadas sin dejar por ello de ser vírgenes. Aunque insólito, el hecho no parece ir más allá de lo meramente curioso, sin embargo, es posible que constituya parte de un plan sobrenatural de dimensiones cósmicas, algo ya anunciado setenta años antes, en Fátima. Se trata de la famosa y desconocida tercera profecía que la Virgen María hizo a los tres pastorcillos portugueses: el Segundo Advenimiento. El hecho conmociona a la Iglesia, empezando por su cúpula, el Papa. Los interrogantes se suceden: ¿Es un fraude?, ¿de las dos muchachas, o sólo de una de ellas? ¿Cómo debe interpretarse el supuesto fenómeno? Y, sobre todo, ¿por qué dos vírgenes?… Sobre la base de esta trama, audaz y original, James Patterson ha escrito una novela sobria, tensa, inquietante, en la que, en medio de un clima de pesadilla, el terror alterna con el prodigio y el desconcierto con la esperanza. Una novela cuya lectura es imposible abandonar, una vez empezada. Una novela, también, imposible de olvidar. Porque la amenaza de caos, de catástrofe para la humanidad, que representa su tema es un escalofrío implantado en el ánimo del lector, un pánico de efecto seguro y duradero.

Nearly 60 years later, while flying over California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, retired military assassin-turned-civilian flight instructor and would-be Buddhist Cordell Logan catches a glint of sunlight on metal and spots what appears to be an aircraft wreckage. His life will never be the same.

Logan and his beautiful ex-wife Savannah, plan a reconciliation in posh Lake Tahoe. But upon landing in the Ruptured Duck, his beloved aging Cessna, Logan agrees to put those plans on hold when he's asked to help guide a search and rescue team to the remote, mountainous crash site. The team finds not only a long-missing airplane, with the mummified remains of its pilot still at the controls, but something much more recent and far more sinister: the body of a young man, shot to death only hours earlier. Someone has beaten the rescuers to the site and will clearly stop at nothing to profit from what the plane was carrying — including kidnapping and threatening to kill Savannah if Logan refuses to help them carry out their getaway plans. With the clock ticking and the love of his life in peril, Logan is drawn into a vexing vortex as personal and potentially deadly as any he's ever known.

Joe Rush takes on a new terror, spawned in the Amazon rain forest, that threatens to bring the world to its knees in James Abel's latest bio-thriller.


While studying new forms of malaria at an Amazon gold rush, Joe Rush's best friend and partner, Eddie Nakamura, disappears. Learning that many of the sick miners have also vanished, Rush begins a search for Eddie that takes him into the heart of darkness — where while battling for his life, he discovers a secret that may change the world.

Thousands of miles away, sick people are starting to flood into U.S. hospitals. When the White House admits that it has received terrorist threats, cities across the Northeast begin to shut down. Rush and his team must journey from one of the most remote spots on Earth to one of the busiest, as the clock ticks toward a kind of annihilation not thought possible. They have even less time than they think to solve the mystery, for the danger — as bad as it is — is about to get even worse.

In the latest installment in this critically acclaimed series, McCone is hired to investigate one of San Luis Obispo County’s most puzzling cold cases. A generation ago, Laurel Greenwood, a housewife and artist, inexplicably vanished, leaving her young daughter alone. Now, new evidence suggests that the missing woman may have led a strange double life. But before McCone can penetrate the tangled mystery, she must first solve a second disappearance – that of her client, the now grown daughter of Laurel Greenwood. The case, which forces Sharon to explore the darker sides of two marriages, comes uncomfortably close on the heels of her own marriage to Hy Ripinsky, and she begins to doubt the wisdom of her impulsive trip to the Reno wedding chapel.

¿Qué amenaza se cierne sobre las aguas de la laguna de Venecia? La aparición de un hombre muerto frente a uno de los hornos de fundición de una fábrica de cristal de Murano implicará al comisario Brunetti en una asombrosa trama en la que se mezclan la corrupción política y los delitos ecológicos. La víctima ha dejado pistas en un ejemplar de un libro de Dante, y Brunetti deberá adentrarse en el Infierno para descubrir quién es el autor del crimen y qué intereses ocultos se mueven en la isla de Murano.

Navegando por Venecia, caminando por callejones estrechos y en bares sombríos, Donna Leon nos descubre esa Venecia casi legendaria donde cualquier misterio es posible. Veneno de cristal es una obra fascinante, la mejor Donna Leon en su intriga más inteligente.

обложка книги Vestido para la muerte Vestido para la muerte

Un travesti ha sido asesinado y su cuerpo aparece con el rostro desfigurado. Quizá otra víctima anónima para el registro de crímenes sin resolver. Pero el comisario veneciano Guido Brunetti, obedeciendo a su infalible instinto, descubre que ese hombre vestido de mujer es Leonardo Mascari, director del Banco de Verona y respetable ciudadano en Venecia. Podría ser un simple caso de doble vida, pero los indicios delatan que hay algo más en esta nueva e intrigante historia de Donna Leon. Su personaje, el comisario Brunetti, considerado por la crítica como «el heredero del Maigret de Simenon» y «el comisario con mayor carisma» de este género literario, encuentra a un abogado del Vaticano y activo miembro de la Lega della Moralità -asociación destinada a perpetuar la fe, la familia y las virtudes morales- en el apartamento de un chapero llamado Crespo. Y poco a poco se enfrenta a una trama en la que están implicados los niveles más altos del mundo financiero, gubernamental y eclesiástico.

La primera vez que conocemos al ex policía Bernie Gunther la acción se sitúa en 1936, en Violetas de Marzo (un eufemismo que usaron los primeros nazis para describir los últimos conversos), cuando los Juegos Olímpicos están a punto de empezar.

Algunos de los amigos judíos de Bernie se van dando cuenta de que tendrían que haber huido cuando aún podían hacerlo, y Gunther recibe el encargo de investigar dos muertes que afectan a los máximos cargos del partido nazi. El antiguo policía Bernie Gunther creía que ya lo había visto todo en las calles de Berlín de los años treinta. Pero cuando dejó el cuerpo para convertirse en detective privado, cada nuevo caso lo iba hundiendo un poco más en los horribles excesos de la subcultura nazi. Después de la guerra, en medio del esplendor imperial y decadente de Viena, Bernie incluso llega a poner al descubierto un legado que, en comparación, convierte las atrocidades cometidas enépoca de guerra en un juego de niños…

At a grand Reykjavik hotel the doorman has been repeatedly stabbed in the dingy basement room he called home. It is only a few days before Christmas and he was preparing to appear as Santa Claus at a children’s party. The manager tries to keep the murder under wraps. A glum detective taking up residence in his hotel and an intrusive murder investigation are not what he needs. As Erlendur quietly surveys the cast of grotesques who populate the hotel, the web of malice, greed and corruption that lies beneath its surface reveals itself. Everyone has something to hide. But most shocking is the childhood secret of the dead man who, many years before, was the most famous child singer in the country: it turns out to be a brush with stardom which would ultimately cost him everything. As Christmas Day approaches Erlendur must delve deeply into the past to find the man’s killer.

When Nameless is hired by Cory Beckett, a beautiful young woman who claims to be a model, to find her missing brother, Kenneth, it seems to be a routine matter. Kenneth has fled San Francisco in a drug-induced panic to avoid trial on a charge of stealing a valuable necklace from the alcoholic wife of the man for whom he works, wealthy yachtsman Andrew Vorhees. When agency operative Jake Runyon locates and questions the frightened young man, Cory Beckett's motives come into question and the case takes on darkly sinister complexities.

Cory lied to Nameless about her livelihood, her relationship with Vorhees, her brother's alleged drug use, and the nature of his alleged crime. Not only is she Andrew Vorhees' mistress, Cory has a secret second lover, factory owner Frank Chaleen, with whom she conspired to frame Kenneth. This bizarre sibling betrayal is part of a diabolical plan that reveals her to be a deadly, designing woman who will stop at nothing to achieve her warped desires.

A series of twists and turns drive the story to a truly shocking climax. For not until then do the detectives realize how devilish Cory Beckett really is, a femme fatale who has brought something new to the species – new, and terrible.

Bill Pronzini's Vixen is the latest in the Nameless Detective series, the longest-running P.I. series currently in print.

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.

    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.
