What Alice Knew: A Most Curious Tale of Henry James and Jack the Ripper

An invalid for most her life, Alice James is quite used to people underestimating her. And she generally doesn't mind. But this time she is not about to let things alone. Yes, her brother Henry may be a famous author, and her other brother William a rising star in the new field of psychology. But when they all find themselves quite unusually involved in the chase for a most vile new murderer—one who goes by the chilling name of Jack the Ripper—Alice is certain of two things:

No one could be more suited to gather evidence about the nature of the killer than her brothers. But if anyone is going to correctly examine the evidence and solve the case, it will have to be up to her.

Warlord

Gentleman spy Alex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American M16 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved on his last mission, almost a year ago, and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call.literally.

His Royal Highness Prince Charles, an old friend, desperately needs his help. Someone is threatening the lives of the British Royal Family. And the death threat Charles has received carries a signature identical to one found in a book that belonged to his uncle, Lord Mountbatten – the beloved family patriarch who was assassinated 30 years before. Someone from the past has the British crown in his sights again, and has proven once before that these threats are not to be taken lightly. This is just the call to duty Hawke needs to get back in action – if the madman doesn't wreak total havoc first.

Warlord is adventure-thriller fiction of the highest order – told with verve and swashbuckling panache by a master of the art.

Worth Dying For

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying 61 Hours with his latest Reacher thriller – a story that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown.

There's deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska… and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it's the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can't let go.

The Duncans want Reacher gone – and it's not just past secrets they're trying to hide. They're awaiting a secret shipment that's already late – and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they're right at the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world.

For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to keeping on going, to put some distance between himself and the hardcore trouble that's bearing down on him.

For Reacher, that was also impossible.

WORTH DYING FOR is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive – a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

What's So Funny?

In his classic caper novels, Donald E. Westlake turns the world of crime and criminals upside down. The bad get better, the good slide a bit, and Lord help anyone caught between a thief named John Dortmunder and the current object of his intentions. Now Westlake's seasoned but often scoreless crook must take on an impossible crime, one he doesn't want and doesn't believe in. But a little blackmail goes a long way in… WHAT'S SO FUNNY?

All it takes is a few underhanded moves by a tough ex-cop named Eppick to pull Dortmunder into a game he never wanted to play. With no choice, he musters his always-game gang and they set out on a perilous treasure hunt for a long-lost gold and jewel-studded chess set once intended as a birthday gift for the last Romanov czar, which unfortunately reached Russia after that party was over. From the moment Dortmunder reaches for his first pawn, he faces insurmountable odds. The purloined past of this precious set is destined to confound any strategy he finds on the board. Success is not inevitable with John Dortmunder leading the attack, but he's nothing if not persistent, and some gambit or other might just stumble into a winning move.

Walking Dead

In this explosive new thriller, Greg Rucka, the acclaimed author of Shooting at Midnight and Patriot Acts, sets bodyguard-turned-international-fugitive Atticus Kodiak on a one-man crusade where being willing to die for your ideals isn't enough. You have to be willing to do much worse…

I will take your place in times of danger.

As an ex-bodyguard, Atticus Kodiak knew the sentiment well. He'd once based his career on it. Now it could cost him more than just his livelihood – more than even his life. For as he wakes to the sound of gunfire, the nightmare is about to begin again.

Atticus knew very well that people came to a place like Kobuleti to hide. After all, that's why he and Alena Cizkova had come to the secluded Georgian town in the former U.S.S.R. But Atticus never asked his friend and neighbor Bakhar Lagidze why he was in Kobuleti or what he might be hiding from. Now it's too late. Bakhar and his family have been brutally murdered, and the thuggish local police chief has declared it a murder-suicide. Everyone – even Alena – seems satisfied to leave it at that.

Except for Atticus.

He knows what the police won't acknowledge: that one person survived the bloodbath in the Lagidze household – their fourteen-year-old daughter. And the nightmare she's about to experience will make her wish she'd died with the rest.

To rescue her Atticus must enter a web that takes him from Russia to Istanbul, that stretches from Dubai to Las Vegas. But what troubles Atticus the most is that Alena – once one of the world's most dangerous assassins and a woman who fears nothing – is clearly terrified of what he's uncovered. And as Atticus gets closer to learning why, the closer he gets to destroying the life they have made, and each other.

It has been ten years since 21-year-old Kevin MacKenzie, Jr. ("Mac"), has been missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already enrolled in Duke University Law School, he walked out of his room in Manhattan 's Upper West Side without a word to his college roommate and has never been seen again. However, he does make three ritual phone calls to his mother every year: on her birthday, on his birthday, and on Mother's Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, on 9/11 does not bring him home, or break the pattern of his calls.

Winterkill

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett returns in this third adventure in C.J. Box's tough, tender, and engrossing series, which just keeps getting better. When a forest service supervisor is murdered right after a manic shooting spree that slaughtered a herd of elk, a mysterious stranger who trains falcons and carries an unusual weapon is arrested for the slaying. Then a special investigative team headed by a devious, vindictive woman arrives in Saddlestring, bent on a bloody confrontation with a group of government-hating survivalists camped out on federal land. Among then is Jeannie Keeley, who abandoned her daughter April three years earlier. Since then, April has become like a daughter to Joe and his wife Marybeth, and a sister to their own children. Now April is right in the middle of what promises to be the last stand for the ragged band of refugees from the firestorms of Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the Montana Freemen, and only Nate the falconer, who owes Joe his life for finding the real killer of the supervisor and freeing him from jail, may be able to save her before the Bighorn Mountains are covered in blood. A tense, taut thriller marked by lyrical renderings of the harsh, beautiful landscape, Winterkill's subtext, as in Box's previous novels, is the conflict between individual rights and freedoms and governmental power that continues to smolder in the towns and valleys of the American west.

Wideo z Jezusem

Na wykopaliskach archeologicznych w Izraelu w pochodzącym sprzed dwóch tysięcy lat grobie znaleziono plastykowy woreczek, a w nim instrukcję obsługi japońskiej kamery wideo. Analiza metodą C14 potwierdziła, że wiek papieru broszurki rzeczywiście wynosi dwa tysiące lat. Jednak opisana w niej kamera ma pojawić się na rynku dopiero za trzy lata. Nasuwa się wyjaśnienie, że w niedalekiej przyszłości — w ciągu następnych czterech lub sześciu lat — odkryty zostanie sposób poruszania się w czasie. Naukowcy stwierdzą, że możliwy jest ruch tylko w jednym kierunku, mianowicie w przeszłość. Dlaczego człowiek, którego szczątki znaleziono w grobie, nie zważając na ryzyko wyruszył w bezpowrotną podróż? Przyczyna mogła być tylko jedna: pragnął sfilmować Jezusa Chrystusa i owo nagranie, dobrze ukryte w bezpiecznym miejscu czeka teraz od tysięcy lat, by w końcu zabrali je stamtąd jego wspólnicy.

Winter in Madrid

A compelling thriller and love story set in post-civil War Spain

Fans of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind and Sebastian Faulks's Birdsong will fall in love with Winter in Madrid, the arresting new novel from C. J. Sansom. In September 1940, the Spanish Civil War is over and Madrid lies in ruins while the Germans continue their march through Europe. Britain stands alone as General Franco considers whether to abandon neutrality and enter the war.

Into this uncertain world comes Harry Brett, a privileged young man who was recently traumatized by his experience in Dunkirk and is now a reluctant spy for the British Secret Service. Sent to gain the confidence of Sandy Forsyth, an old school friend turned shadowy Madrid businessman, Brett finds himself involved in a dangerous game—and surrounded by memories.

Meanwhile, Sandy's girlfriend, ex-Red Cross nurse Barbara Clare, is engaged in a secret mission of her own—to find her former lover Bernie Piper, whose passion for the Communist cause led him into the International Brigades and who vanished on the bloody battlefields of the Jarama.

In a vivid and haunting depiction of wartime Spain, Winter in Madrid is an intimate and riveting tale that offers a remarkable sense of history unfolding and the profound impact of impossible choices.

Whale Talk

T. J. Jones is black, Japanese, and white; his given name is The Tao (honest!), and he's the son of a woman who abandoned him when she got heavily into crack and crank. As a child he was full of rage, but now as a senior in high school he's pretty much overcome all that. With the help of a good therapist and his decent, loving, ex-hippie adoptive parents, he's not only fairly even-keeled, he has turned out to be smart and funny.

Injustice, however, still fills him with fury. So when big-deal football star Mike Barbour bullies brain-damaged Chris Coughlin for wearing his dead brother's letter jacket, T.J. hatches a scheme for revenge. He assembles a swim team (in a school with no pool) made up of the most outrageous outsiders and misfits he can find and extracts a conditional promise of those sacred letter jackets from the coach. After weeks of dedicated practice at the All Night Fitness pool, the seven mermen get good enough not to embarrass themselves in competition. The really important thing, though, turns out to be the long bus rides to meets, a safe place to share the hurts that have made them who they are. Meanwhile, T.J.'s father, who has taken in a battered little girl to ease his lifelong guilt over his role in the accidental death of a baby, tangles with another bully-her stepfather-and his growing murderous rage.

Chris Crutcher, therapist and author of seven prize-winning young adult books, here gives his many fans another wise and compassionate story full of the intensity of athletic competition and hair-raising incidents of child abuse. (Ages 12 and older)

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

Wash This Blood Clean from My Hand

“Eccentric characters, complex but gripping plots and a nice wit… Vargas weaves her story expertly.” – Toronto Sun

“Bizarre and fascinating.” – Edmonton Journal

“Vargas has a wonderfully offbeat imagination that makes each of her novels a refreshing delight.” – The Observer

“A gripping chase thriller.” – The Economist

“There is a haunting quality to Vargas’s writing.” – Scotland on Sunday

***

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

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

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

Watchlist

From International Thriller Writers comes WATCHLIST: two powerful novellas featuring the same thrilling cast of characters in one major suspenseful package. THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT and THE COPPER BRACELET are collaborations of some of the world’s greatest thriller writers, including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plots in motion. The other authors each wrote a chapter and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing both novellas to their startling conclusions.

In the first novella, THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to America to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins. But the greatest threat will come from a shadowy figure from his past: the man known only as Faust.

Harold Middleton returns in THE COPPER BRACELET -- the explosive sequel to THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT -- as he’s drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war. Careening from Nice to London and Moscow to Kashmir to prevent nuclear disaster, Middleton is unaware that his prey has changed and that the act of terror is far more diabolical than he knows. Will he discover the identity of the Scorpion in time to halt an event that will pit the United States, China, and Russia against each other at the brink of World War III?

When Red is Black

Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai Police Bureau is taking a vacation, in part because he is annoyed at his boss, the Party Secretary, but also because he has been made an offer he can't refuse by a triad-connected businessman. For what seems to be a fortune-with no apparent strings attached-he is to translate into English a business proposal for the New World, a complex of shops and restaurants to be built in Central Shanghai evoking nostalgia for the "glitter and glamour" of the '30s.

So Detective Yu, Chen's partner, is forced to take charge of a new investigation. A novelist has been murdered in her room. At first it seems that only a neighbor could have committed the crime, but when one confesses, Detective Yu cannot believe that he is really the murderer. As the policeman looks further, ample motives begin to surface, even on the part of Internal Security. But it is only when Inspector Chen steps back into the investigation that the real culprit is apprehended. And then Chen discovers how the triad has played him.

Wolves Eat Dogs

Amazon.com Review

"Why would anyone jump out a window with a saltshaker?" A good question, especially when the suicide victim is Pasha Ivanov, a Moscow physicist-turned-billionaire businessman-a "New Russian" poster boy, if ever there was one-with several homes, a leggy 20-year-old girlfriend ("the kind [of blonde] who could summon the attention of a breeze"), and every reason to be contented in his middle age. So, wonders Senior Investigator Arkady Renko, in Martin Cruz Smith's Wolves Eat Dogs, what provoked Ivanov to take a header from his stylish 10th-floor apartment? And how does it relate to the shaker clutched in his dead hand or the hillock of table salt found on his closet floor?

Renko, introduced in Smith's 1981 bestseller, Gorky Park, is a cop well out of sync with rapidly changing Russian society, "a difficult investigator, a holdover from the Soviet era, a man on the skids" whose determination to do more than go through the motions of criminal inquiries inevitably exasperates his superiors. Thus, when this saturnine detective declines to accept the verdict that Ivanov did himself in-who peppered that salt around the capitalist's premises, Renko still wants to know, and what about rumors of a security breach at Ivanov's apartment building?-he is exiled to the Ukrainian Zone of Exclusion, the "radioactive wasteland" surrounding Chernobyl, site of a notorious 1986 nuclear disaster and the place where, only a week after Ivanov's demise, his company's senior vice-president is found with his throat slit. There, among cynical scientists, entrepreneurial scavengers, and predators both two- and four-legged-an exclusive coterie of the rejected-Renko chews over the crimes on his plate. Unfortunately, the dosimeter that warns him of radiation exposure at Chernobyl does not also protect him from a pair of malevolent brothers, or a "damaged" woman doctor offering him mutually assured disappointment.

Smith has a keen eye for the comical quirks of modern-day Russia -its chaotic roadways, voracious appetite for post-communist luxuries, and evolving ethics ("Russians used to kill for women or power, real reasons. Now they kill for money"). And this story's bleakly beautiful Ukrainian backdrop nicely complements the desperate hope of Renko's task. Still, the greatest strength of Wolves Eat Dogs (Smith's fifth series installment, after Havana Bay) is its characters, especially Arkady Renko, who despite his lugubrious nature continues to show a heart as expansive and unfathomable as the Siberia steppe.

From Publishers Weekly

Smith's melancholy, indefatigable Senior Investigator Arkady Renko has been exiled to some bitter venues in the past-including blistering-hot Cuba in Havana Bay and the icy Bering sea in Polar Star-but surely the strangest (and most fascinating) is his latest, the eerie, radioactive landscape of post-meltdown Chernobyl. Renko is called in to investigate the 10-story, plunge-to-the-pavement death of Pasha Ivanov, fabulously wealthy president of Moscow 's NoviRus corporation, whose death is declared a suicide by Renko's boss, Prosecutor Zurin. Renko, being Renko, isn't sure it's suicide and wonders about little details like the bloody handprints on the windowsill and the curious matter of the closet filled with 50 kilos of salt. And why is NoviRus's senior vice-president Lev Timofeyev's nose bleeding? Renko asks too many questions, so an annoyed Zurin sends him off to Chernobyl to investigate when Timofeyev turns up in the cemetery in a small Ukrainian town with his throat slit and his face chewed on by wolves. The cemetery lies within the dangerously radioactive 30-kilometer circle called the Zone of Exclusion, populated by a contingent of scientists, a detachment of soldiers and those-the elderly, the crooks, the demented-who have sneaked back to live in abandoned houses and apartments. The secret of Ivanov and Timofeyev's deaths lies somewhere in the Zone, and the dogged Renko, surrounded by wolves both animal and human, refuses to leave until he unravels the mystery. It's the Zone itself and the story of Chernobyl that supplies the riveting backbone of this novel. Renko races around the countryside on his Uralmoto motorcycle, listening always to the ominous ticking of his dosimeter as it counts the dangerous levels of radioactivity present in the food, the soil, the air and the people themselves as they lie, cheat, love, steal, kill and die.

Whose Body?

The stark naked body was lying in the tub. Not unsual for a proper bath, but highly irregular for murder — especially with a pair of gold pince-nez deliberately perched before the sightless eyes. What's more, the face appeared to have been shaved after death. The police assumed that the victim was a prominent financier, but Lord Peter Wimsey, who dabbled in mystery detection as a hobby, knew better. In this, his first murder case, Lord Peter untangles the ghastly mystery of the corpse in the bath.

Wer die Wahrheit sucht

An einem frühen Dezembermorgen wird Guy Brouard — Millionär, Mäzen und Frauenheld — ermordet an einem Strand der englischen Kanalinsel Guernsey aufgefunden. Verdächtige und Motive gibt es mehr als genug. Nur die junge Amerikanerin China River hat keines. Doch alle Indizien weisen ausgerechnet auf sie. China hatte ihren Bruder aus Kalifornien nach Guernsey begleitet, um Guy Brouard die Architekturpläne für ein von ihm gestiftetes Museum zum Gedenken an die deutsche Besatzung der Insel im Zweiten Weltkrieg zu übergeben. Eine andere Verbindung existiert augenscheinlich nicht.

Simon St. James, engster Vertrauter von Chief Inspector Thomas Lynley, reist mit seiner Frau Deborah auf die winterliche Kanalinsel, um die Unschuld von China, einer alten Freundin Deborahs, nachzuweisen. Doch je tiefer sie in die verschworene Inselgemeinschaft eintauchen, desto mehr Personen entdecken sie, die dem wohltätigen Mitbürger Guy Brouard alles andere als freundschaftliche Gefühle entgegenbringen — und die auf irgendeine Weise in den Mord verstrickt sind: seine Exfrau, sein Sohn, seine Geliebte, seine Schwester, seine jugendlichen Schützlinge, der tragisch ausgebootete einheimische Architekt. Liegen die Motive in Brouards undurchsichtiger Vergangenheit? Oder reichen sie zurück bis in Guernseys wechselvolle Geschichte?

Winterland

"A terrific read… completely involving." George Pelecanos

In the vein of films such as Michael Clayton and Syriana, Winterland is a fast-paced, literary thriller set in contemporary Dublin. The worlds of business, politics and crime collide when two men with the same name, from the same family, die on the same night – one death is a gangland murder, the other, apparently, a road accident. Was it a coincidence? That's the official version of events. But when a family member, Gina Rafferty, starts asking questions, this notion quickly unravels.

Devastated by her loss, Gina's grief is tempered, and increasingly fuelled, by anger – because the more she's told that it was all a coincidence, that gangland violence is commonplace, that people die on our roads every day of the week, the less she's prepared to accept it. Told repeatedly that she should stop asking questions, Gina becomes more determined than ever to find out the truth, to establish a connection between the two deaths – but in doing so she embarks on a path that will push certain powerful people to their limits…

Whispered Lies

In the suspenseful new thriller from New York Times bestselling coauthors Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love, a Bureau of American Defense agent must join forces with an informant he can neither trust nor resist.

Bureau of American Defense operative Carlos Delgado has spent the past sixteen years watching over his shoulder, waiting for death to catch up to him. His luck runs out when BAD intercepts an unexpected tip on the number one threat to United States security: the Fratelli de il Sovrano. Their best hope for uncovering a deadly plan that risks countless lives and threatens economic chaos just days before the presidential election is to capture a mysterious informant known as Mirage. But when Carlos takes her into custody, Mirage is not at all what he expected – and neither is the threat she poses to the secrets he would die to protect.

Gabrielle Saxe has hidden from a killer for the past decade, sending anonymous tips on international criminals to intelligence agencies around the world. When a postcard arrives from a friend who is supposed to be dead, she takes a risk that catapults her into the midst of dangerous operatives on a treacherous mission – and into the arms of a man who is duty-bound to surrender her to Interpol as an international felon. Carlos is the last person Gabrielle should trust and the only one standing between her and death. But little does she know, she holds the key to his survival as well…

Woman with Birthmark

A mother's dying wish sealed with a deadly promise. Four men with a secret they thought they'd buried decades earlier. A detective in love. A man desperate to live despite the shadow of his guilty past.

After hearing her mother's deathbed confession and following her mother's dreary funeral, Maria Adler realizes she has no other option but to seize upon her mother's imperative to do something. Dissolving the life she loathes, Maria changes her appearance and disappears. When she emerges, revenge is her sole occupation.

Van Veeteren and his associates are left bewildered by the curious murder of a man shot twice in the heart and twice below the belt. A quiet, utterly dull man, the only suspicious activity his surviving wife can recall is a series of peculiar phone calls. Repeatedly the telephone would ring, offering no answer aside from an obscure pop song from the 1960s. This siren song is linked to an identical murder, but the true link between these heinous crimes remains unknown while a daughter's pride grows with the satisfaction of vengeance and another detective's lover offers telling insights that only an outsider could deduce.

With the critical eye and cool observation necessary for a successful chess match, Van Veeteren pursues his subject across the country. Wading through the outrageous leads and fruitless tips, he chases his mark. A breathless thriller full of deception, blackmail, and cold murder, Woman with Birthmark is a chilling read.

Wicked City

In 1955, Look magazine called Phenix City, Alabama, “The Wickedest City in America,” but even that may have been an understatement. It was a stew of organized crime and corruption, run by a machine that dealt with complaints forcefully and with dispatch. No one dared cross them – no one even tried. And then the machine killed the wrong man.

When crime – fighting attorney Albert Patterson is gunned down in a Phenix City alley in the spring of 1954, the entire town seems to pause just for a moment – and when it starts up again, there is something different about it. A small group of men meet and decide that they have had enough, but what that means and where it will take them is something they could not have foreseen. Over the course of the next several months, lives will change, people will die, and unexpected heroes will emerge – like “a Randolph Scott western,” one of them remarks, “played out not with horses and Winchesters but with Chevys and.38s and switchblades.”

Peopled by an extraordinary cast of characters, both real and fictional, Wicked City is a novel of uncommon intensity – rich with atmosphere and filled with sensuality and surprise.

Widma W Mieście Breslau

Wrocław, rok 1919. Na jednej z wysepek w rozlewiskach Odry dwóch gimnazjalistów dokonuje makabrycznego odkrycia. Przybyły na miejsce asystent kryminalny Eberhard Mock odnajduje okrutnie okaleczone ciała czterech mężczyzn, a przy nich adresowaną do siebie tajemniczą notatkę. Ekscentryczny morderca wciąga policję w grę, której stawką jest życie kolejnych ludzi. Policjanci podążają jego tropem w podziemny świat tajnych sekt okultystycznych i sutenerów oferujących bogatym klientom zakazane rozrywki. Tymczasem nieustępliwy, porywczy Mock, prześladowany przez senne koszmary, słabość do alkoholu i pięknych, rudowłosych kobiet, toczy rozpaczliwą walkę z czasem. Wykorzystuje cały swój spryt i doświadczenie, by jak najprędzej powstrzymać krwawy spektakl, którego – nieświadomie – sam jest przyczyną. Mroczny, pełen napięcia i grozy thriller Marka Krajewskiego opisuje wydarzenia o osiem lat poprzedzające akcję uznanego za najlepszy polski kryminał 2003 roku Końca świata w Breslau. Podobnie jak tamten, wiernie, w najdrobniejszych szczegółach odtwarza wizerunek przedwojennego Wrocławia, kreśląc sugestywny obraz miasta zaludnionego zdeprawowanymi arystokratami, bezwzględnymi bandytami, rewolucjonistami i maniakami o najdzikszych upodobaniach.

What the Librarian Did

Is Rachel Robinson the only one on campus who doesn't know who Devin Freedman is? No big deal except that the bad-boy rock star gets a kick out of Rachel's refusal to worship at his feet. And that seems to have provoked his undivided attention. Devin, the guy who gave new meaning to the phrase "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll." Devin, the guy who somehow becomes wedged between her and the past she's kept hidden for years.

It's up to this librarian to find out firsthand just how "bad" he really is. Because her secret – and her growing feelings for a man who claims he's bent on redemption – depend on his turning out to be as good as he seems. Which is really, really good.

Соня смотрела на труп любовника и ловила ртом воздух, как рыба, выброшенная волной на горячий песок. Хотелось кричать.

White Corridor

From using crackpot psychics to cutting-edge forensics, Arthur Bryant and John May are famous for their maddeningly unorthodox approach to solving crimes that the ordinary police cannot. Now Christopher Fowler, “a new master of the classical detective story,”* brings back crime detection's oddest-and oldest-couple to solve the ultimate locked room mystery.

It's an “impossible” crime-a member of the Peculiar Crimes Unit killed inside a locked autopsy room populated only by the dead and to which only four PCU members had a key. And to make matters worse, the Unit has been shut down for a forced “vacation” and Bryant and May are stuck in a van miles away in the Dartmoor countryside during a freak snowstorm on their way to a convention of psychics.

Now, with Sergeant Janice Longbright in charge at headquarters, Bryant and May must crack the case by cell phone while trying to stop a second murder without freezing to death. For among the line of snowed-in vehicles, a killer is on the prowl, a beautiful woman is on the run from a man who seeks either redemption or another victim, and an innocent child is caught in the middle.

Weaving together two electrifying cases, White Corridor is an unforgettable triumph-by turns hilarious and harrowing-as two of detective fiction's most marvelous characters confront one of human nature's darkest mysteries: the ability to deceive, deny, and destroy.

What The Dead Know

Thirty years ago two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall. Their bodies were never found and those familiar with the case have always been tortured by these questions: How do you kidnap two girls? Who – or what – could have lured the two sisters away from a busy mall on a Saturday afternoon without leaving behind a single clue or witness? Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters. But her involuntary admission and subsequent attempt to stonewall investigators only deepens the mystery. Where has she been? Why has she waited so long to come forward? Could her abductor truly be a beloved Baltimore cop? There isn't a shred of evidence to support her story, and every lead she gives the police seems to be another dead end – a dying, incoherent man, a razed house, a missing grave, and a family that disintegrated long ago, torn apart not only by the crime but by the fissures the tragedy revealed in what appeared to be the perfect household. In a story that moves back and forth across the decades, there is only one person who dares to be skeptical of a woman who wants to claim the identity of one Bethany sister without revealing the fate of the other. Will he be able to discover the truth?

Wycieczka ze Sztokholmu

Cudzoziemski trup na naszym terenie

"Paskudna sprawa – stwierdził zwierzchnik – morderstwo cudzoziemki. Musimy jak najszybciej znaleźć przestępcę".

Wycieczka ze Sztokholmu Jerzego Edigeya jest najlepszą powieścią milicyjną z jaką miałam do tej pory do czynienia. Niewątpliwie największym walorem jest ciekawa intryga. Rozwiązanie zagadki nie jest wcale oczywiste po przeczytaniu kilkunastu stron, książka Edigeya do samego końca trzyma w napięciu. Spełnia więc oczekiwania czytelnika w stosunku do kryminału, na pewno jest jedną z tych, które czyta się jednym tchem, w jeden wieczór.

Kolejnym godnym pochwały elementem są ciekawie skonstruowane postacie, Edigey udowadnia, że poza smykałką do wymyślania skomplikowanych zagadek i lekkim piórem autor kryminałów powinien być dobrym psychologiem. Dzięki temu postacie z Wycieczki ze Sztokholmu stają się wielowymiarowe, mogą zaintrygować czytelnika w równym stopniu, co fabuła.

Akcja książki toczy się w Zakopanem. Autor nie poskąpił nam w związku z tym ani ciekawego opisu tatrzańskich szlaków, ani równie interesujących informacji na temat miejscowych lokali rozrywkowo-gastronomicznych. W jednym z nich, w restauracji hotelu Nosal, zostaje popełnione morderstwo. Ofiarą jest Szwedka, żona bogatego przemysłowca, Rolfa Perssona. W dodatku zostaje zrabowana należąca do zamordowanej warta tysiące dolarów, złota bransoleta. Zbrodnię bada milicjant z zakopiańskiej komendy, porucznik Stanisław Motyka z pomocą "asa nad asami" przysłanego z Warszawy, podpułkownika Janusza Kaczanowskiego. Sprawa jest skomplikowana, o tym jak potoczy się śledztwo czytelnik powinien się jednak (do czego szczerze zachęcam) przekonać sam.

Należy przy tym podkreślić, że Wycieczka ze Sztokholmu jest godną polecenia skarbnicą wiedzy o tamtych czasach. Edigey ze sporą dokładnością ukazuje tło obyczajowe akcji. Dowiemy się co nieco o tym, co się jadło i piło, na co wydawało się pieniądze i jak się je zdobywało. Przeczytamy też sporo o Szwedach, uczestnikach tytułowej wycieczki. Trafimy na przykład na informacje, że "Polacy w oczach Szwedów mają opinię, że im się żadna dziewczyna nie oprze", że "Szwedzi, nawet najbogatsi, liczą się z każdym groszem", czy że Szwedzi "potrafią dobrze łgać". Poznamy również tajniki pracy drobnego handlarza walutą, Franka Karate i przewodnika tatrzańskiego, Andrzeja Szaflara. W książce nie zabraknie nawet wątku romansowego czy krytyki zachodniego kapitalizmu, pod koniec będziemy natomiast mieli do czynienia z wygłoszoną przez podpułkownika Kaczanowskiego płomienną przemową w stylu Herkulesa Poirot. As polskiej milicji jest w ogóle ogromnym spryciarzem, rozwiązanie zagadki zawdzięczamy głównie jemu, a nie, jak to ma miejsce w niektórych (mniej udanych) powieściach milicyjnych, przypadkowemu pojawieniu się pod koniec książki dowodów czy świadków zbrodni.

Podsumowując: każdy znajdzie u Edigeya coś dla siebie. Zarówno wielbiciele dobrego kryminału, jak i tropiciele obyczajowości PRL. Jedyne czego zabrakło, to odrobiny więcej poczucia humoru, zabawniejszych dialogów. W tej dziedzinie Edigey ustępuje niestety innym pisarzom, chociażby Zeydlerowi-Zborowskiemu. Poza tym szczegółem udowadnia jednak, że popularność jego powieści milicyjnych jest jak najbardziej uzasadniona.

Where Shadows Dance

Regency London: July 1812. How do you set about solving a murder no one can reveal has been committed?

That’s the challenge confronting C.S. Harris’s aristocratic soldier-turned-sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr when his friend, surgeon and “anatomist” Paul Gibson, illegally buys the cadaver of a young man from London’s infamous body snatchers. A rising star at the Foreign Office, Mr. Alexander Ross was reported to have died of a weak heart. But when Gibson discovers a stiletto wound at the base of Ross’s skull, he can turn only to Sebastian for help in catching the killer.

Described by all who knew him as an amiable young man, Ross at first seems an unlikely candidate for murder. But as Sebastian’s search takes him from the Queen’s drawing rooms in St. James’s Palace to the embassies of Russia, the United States, and the Turkish Empire, he plunges into a dangerous shadow land of diplomatic maneuvering and international intrigue, where truth is an elusive commodity and nothing is as it seems.

Meanwhile, Sebastian must confront the turmoil of his personal life. Hero Jarvis, daughter of his powerful nemesis Lord Jarvis, finally agrees to become his wife. But as their wedding approaches, Sebastian can’t escape the growing realization that not only Lord Jarvis but Hero herself knows far more about the events surrounding Ross’s death than they would have him believe.

Then a second body is found, badly decomposed but bearing the same fatal stiletto wound. And Sebastian must race to unmask a ruthless killer who is now threatening the life of his reluctant bride and their unborn child.

White Doves at Morning

'White doves come at morning Where my soldier sleeps in the ground. I placed my ring in his coffin, The trees o'er his grave have all turned brown.' Set mainly in Louisiana during the years 1861 1868, this passionate novel of men, women and war tells the story of the author's ancestor, Confederate soldier Willie Burke. A classic Burke hero, innately moral to the point of lunacy, Willie is soon in conflict with his superiors. As his best friend Jim Stubblefield observes: 'the juncture of Willie Burke and the Confederate Army is akin to the meeting of a wrecking ball and a crystal shop.' The characters who people these pages, many of them based on real historical figures, are as memorable as any Burke has created. Mulatto, Flower Jamison, victim of terrible abuse that never touches her soul, determined to better herself; Quaker abolitionist Abigail Dowling, whose Unionist sympathies put her in constant danger; Colonel Ira Jamison, rotten to his core yet who would rise from a cesspit smelling of roses; these and many others stay powerfully in the mind in this epic tale. Like all the best war novels, WHITE DOVES AT MORNING concentrates not on battles but on the edges of grand events, the detritus that wars create, the human cost, and, in this case, the terrible aftermath.

Warning Signs

From Publishers Weekly

When can a psychologist go to the police about a client without violating the doctor/patient contract? Boulder psychologist Alan Gregory, veteran of nine previous White suspense novels, wrestles with this dilemma in White's latest top-flight thriller. Neurotic Naomi Bigg seeks help when she suspects her high school son, Paul, plans to avenge his sister's rape and his father's murder conviction for killing the rapist, who was let off on a technicality. Paul's best friend, Ramp, an explosives fanatic, lost his mother to a paroled rapist/murderer and has his own list of targets. Alan's erratic sessions with Naomi begin to unnerve him when he picks up hints of a connection to the recent brutal murder of Boulder 's DA, his wife Lauren's boss. Even worse, he realizes that Lauren, suffering from MS and just ending maternity leave, assisted in the bungled prosecution of Paul's sister's rapist. And to further complicate things, the prime suspect in the DA murder case is Boulder police detective Lucy Tanner, partner of Alan's best friend, Sam Purdy. When a car bomb kills a judge's wife in Denver, Alan is torn with indecision, but goes to Sam after explosives are found in the dead DA's house. When a bomb goes off at Alan's office and Lucy is kidnapped, Alan and Sam team up and track Ramp on his deadly bomb spree. White (Private Practices) deliciously taunts the reader with his trademark twists, smoothly weaving plots together and sprinkling red herrings among the solid clues. Could Columbine have been prevented if the shooters' parents had gone to the police? How many warning signs are needed before action should be taken? These questions have led to the "no tolerance" policies in many schools and underlie this tensely satisfying outing. National ad/promo.

Watchers

Prolific Koontz's recent horror efforts (Strangers, Phantoms, Whispers) smothered readers under ungainly layers of fatty subplots and scleroid exposition. In this 49th novel, he strips away much of the excess to deliver his leanest book since The Vision (1977), and his best ever, an imaginative and unusual blend of suspense and sentiment as man, woman, and dog flee from horrors both inhuman and inhumane. The dog, a golden retriever, is the novel's centerpiece. World-weary Travis Cornell stumbles upon him snarling at something deep in a California woods. Showing uncanny wit, the dog leads Travis out of the forest, responding to every command with near-human intelligence. Adopting the dog, Travis names him "Einstein." Meanwhile, two villains wreak havoc in the L.A. suburbs, Koontz's excuse to indulge in his customary gory excesses: some thing is decapitating random loners, while, in an unnecessary subplot, a KGB-hired assassin kills scientists connected with a gene-splicing lab. Days later, Einstein saves a lonely woman, Nora, from rape. As she and Travis romance, they explore the dog's powers, even teaching him to read and write. With the use of Scrabble tiles, Einstein explains that he, as well as a murderous baboonish creature so vile as to be called "The Other," are results of an Army genetic experiment. Einstein escaped; The Other, jealous of his charm, broke out to kill him – and all who stand in its way. Grateful to Einstein the dog for reviving their tired lives, Travis and Nora hide out with him in S.F., where, amidst domestic bliss highlighted by a pregnancy and the dog's obsession with Mickey Mouse videos, they await the coming of The Other. But the assassin, hoping to steal Einstein, shows up first; Travis guns him down. When The Other arrives, razor teeth flashing, it meets the same fate. At the close: a happy ending foretelling a race of super-dogs to grace the earth. More a fable about love and trust than an outright chiller, this work, with its echoes of Frankenstein and The Island of Dr. Moreau, still peppers enough tension and mayhem throughout to satisfy horror fans. And the touching, if often hokey, interplay between dog and human could attract new, non-genre readers. A break-through for Koontz.

Witness in Death

When a celebrity is killed right before her eyes, New York detective Eve Dallas takes a new place in crime-as both officer and witness to murder…

Opening night at New York 's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high-profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness-and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle. The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone and everything… and in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth-and really good acting…

From Publishers Weekly

It is 2059, and New York City homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas's husband, Roarke, is producing a revival of Agatha Christie's thriller Witness for the Prosecution. On opening night, when the villainous character Leonard Vole gets his just deserts, someone substitutes a kitchen knife for the prop knife, and the actor, Richard Draco, is stabbed through the heart. Trouble is, in time-tested British mystery fashion, everyone in the cast had good reason to despise Richard, a misogynist who seduced and discarded beautiful young women, including one whom he knew to be his daughter. It's up to Eve to solve the case, an emotionally difficult task as she is no stranger to incest herself: she was beaten and raped by her father before she managed to escape him. As Eve fights to keep her head above water, she tries to bond at a deeper level with Roarke, so that her future will heal the pain of her past. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) serves up a welcome mix of edgy, sexy lovers,newfangled gadgets, classic whodunit and noir.

Running a pub in the outback town of Wollegudgerie doesn't offer much fun or future for knockabout Aussie dyke Kylie Kendall, so when the father she never knew dies and leaves her 51% of his Los Angeles-based private-eye agency, it's bright lights, big city for America-bound Kylie. Not so happy about her arrival is her father's former business partner, the beautiful, enigmatic Ariana Creeling, who wants to buy Kylie out and gives her a decidedly chilly reception.

But the two women soon have other matters to attend to. Dr. Dave Deer, shrink to the stars whose "slap, slap, get on with it" approach has made him a celebrity, hires them to investigate the theft of records and subsequent suicide of a successful but reviled film director. Concerned for his professional reputation, Dr. Deer would much prefer that the death of his former client be revealed to be a murder. Best-selling mystery novelist Claire McNab launches her newest series with a giant bang as the sparks between Arianna and Kylie-and the folks who would like to see them dead-fly in the City of Angels.

When Eight Bells Toll

Millions of pounds in gold bullion are being pirated in the Irish Sea. Investigations by the British Secret Service, and a sixth sense, have brought Philip Calvert to a bleak, lonely bay in the Western Highlands. But the sleepy atmosphere of Torbay is deceptive. The place is the focal point of many mysterious disappearances. Even the unimaginative Highland Police Sergeant seems to be acting a part. But why? This story is Alistair MacLean at his enthralling best. It has all the edge-of-the-seat suspense, and dry humour that millions of readers have devoured for years.

W Żywe Oczy

„Po trzech dniach deszczu w kwietniu 1954 roku rzeka wezbrała i wypełniła zbiornik do niespotykanego wcześniej poziomu, powodując, że wadliwie skonstruowane betonowe ściany osunęły się gigantyczną kaskadą.

Littleton Flats leżało poniżej poziomu morza bezpośrednio na drodze płynącej wody. Przestało istnieć. Liczbę ofiar ustalono na osiemset dziewięćdziesiąt dwie, poprawiając ją z ośmiuset dziewięćdziesięciu trzech po tym, jak w dole rzeki znaleziono żywą trzyletnią dziewczynkę.

Dowiedziałem się o tym, przeglądając mikrofilmy w „Littleton Journal” wkrótce po tym, jak Hinch mnie zatrudnił, ale zanim jeszcze dostałem coś konkretnego do roboty. To, że stare numery były wciąż na mikrofilmach, a nie na dyskach komputerowych, boleśnie mi uświadomiło, że nie gram już w pierwszej lidze.

Wiele osób w miasteczku znało kogoś, kto znał kogoś, kto zginął w Tamtej Katastrofie. Nic dziwnego, że był to dla nich bolesny temat, o czym przekonałem się później, próbując zainteresować Hincha artykułem retrospektywnym z okazji pięćdziesiątej rocznicy wydarzenia.

– Już tego próbowaliśmy – powiedział. – W każdym razie twój poprzednik próbował.

Mój poprzednik nazywał się John Wren. Wiedziałem o tym, ponieważ odziedziczyłem nie tylko jego biurko; wynajmował również przede mną ten sam dom. Najwyraźniej był kimś w rodzaju chomika: znalazłem w domu stare rachunki za telefon i kablówkę, zaadresowane do Johna Wrena koperty po przesyłkach z Amazon.com, poupychane w różnych miejscach kartki zabazgrane częściowo tylko czytelnymi notatkami diabli wiedzą na jaki temat. Natknąłem się też na coś, nad czym pracował: historię pechowego, zdezorientowanego weterana wojny wietnamskiej, który pewnego dnia zabłąkał się do Littleton i zasnął w miejskiej altanie. Tytuł brzmiał: Kim jest Eddie Bronson?

Wyglądało na to, że Wren pisał go z myślą o jakiejś lokalnej nagrodzie dziennikarskiej. Nie zdobył jej. Pierwszego dnia w pracy przywitała mnie lista zatytułowana Zasady Wrena przyklejona taśmą klejącą wewnątrz biurka. „Zasada numer jeden: dla pewności kopiuj notatki. Zasada numer dwa: na wszelki wypadek przepisuj nagrania z taśm!”

Norma uważała, że Wren, przeszczepiony do Littleton z Minnesoty, zapadł na ciężki przypadek pustynnej demencji – syndrom Santa Ana – albo atak małomiasteczkowych lęków, dziwne zaburzenie osobowości czasem dopadające ludzi, którzy utknęli na kalifornijskiej pustyni w samym środku nigdzie. Wyjechał potem, łowić pstrągi gdzieś w pobliżu granicy z Oregonem. Albo w przerębli na jeziorze Michigan. Albo szukać złota w Jukonie. Szczegóły były owiane tajemnicą…”

Bohater „W żywe oczy” Tom Valle był wschodzącą gwiazdą amerykańskich mediów. Jego kariera została zniszczona przez skandal, który wybuchł po ujawnieniu, że w swoich artykułach notorycznie rozmijał się z prawdą, fabrykował fakty. Wiele jego „demaskatorskich” tekstów okazało się plagiatami.

Swoje winy wobec dziennikarstwa Tom odkupuje w niewielkiej redakcji na kalifornijskiej pustyni. Tutaj natrafia na ślad prawdziwej afery. 50 lat wcześniej w katastrofie tamy zginęły 893 osoby. Lecz czy ta historia wydarzyła się naprawdę? Czy może rozgrywa się jedynie w głowie głównego bohatera?

Przez tę przewrotną intrygę niezwykle konsekwentnie przeprowadzi nas James Siegel, autor bestsellerowych „Wykolejonego” i „W matni”, na co dzień dyrektor kreatywny nowojorskiego oddziału agencji reklamowej BBDO.

Czy ta historia wydarzyła się naprawdę? Kto stoi za aferą? Dziennikarz? Czy może amerykański rząd? Te pytania towarzyszą nam od samego początku lektury nowej powieści Jamesa Siegla „W żywe oczy”, która właśnie ukazała się nakładem Wydawnictwa Otwartego.

Siegel opowiada historię dziennikarza na tropie skrywanej przez amerykański rząd afery atomowej. Gdyby nie fakt, że pierwowzorem bohatera stał się Jayson Blair – reporter, który zachwiał wiarygodnością New York Timesa była by to zapewne tylko kolejna dziennikarska powieść sensacyjna… Tymczasem lektura „W żywe oczy” sprawia, że uważneiej słuchamy tego, co mówią nam politycy i dziennikarze.

Hoping to avoid charges of institutionalized racism in its failure to pursue the earlier crimes to their conclusion, New Scotland Yard hands the case over to Lynley and his colleagues. The killer is a psychopath who does not intend to be stopped. Worse, a devastating tragedy within the police ranks causes them to fumble in their pursuit of him.

Winter Study

In bestseller Barr’s chilling 14th mystery thriller to feature National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon (after 2005’s Hard Truth), Anna joins the team of Winter Study, a research project intended to study the wolves and moose of Michigan’s Isle Royale National Park, the setting for 1994’s A Superior Death. Complicating the study is Bob Menechinn, an untrustworthy Homeland Security officer assigned to shadow the research. Crowded into inhospitable lodgings and persecuted by unrelenting cold, Anna is far from her comfort zone as nature turns awry with a series of bizarre events. The team stumbles upon the tracks – and the mutilated victim – of a preternaturally large, unidentified beast, and local packs of wolves descend on human-populated areas, a behavior out of step with their species. The campfire legends of youth metastasize into adult fears as Anna must piece together a connection between these anomalies while guarding herself from the strangers around her. Barr’s visceral descriptions of the winter cold nicely complement the paranoia that follows the appearance of the mythic monsters at play.

Cynthia Doyle worked in the flesh trade in New York’s Times Square, the sex capital of the world. Bodies were her business, massages were her medium… and death was her destiny.

Wall Street Noir

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

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

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

Warrior Class

The world is falling apart, and there are plenty of people willing to take advantage. One of them is Pavel Kazakov, a Russian oilman with close ties to organized crime, and an audacious idea: Build a huge pipeline through the Balkans, get the Russian army to back him, and everybody gets rich. Sure, NATO will object, but the new president’s emphatic decision that American will no longer be the world’s policeman guarantees no effective opposition. Russia will dominate Europe. Kazakov will dominate the oil supply. He hasn’t reckoned with Patrick McLanahan, however. The young Air Force general leads a combat mission deep into Russia to rescue a spy on the ground, but when things start to spin out of control, McLanahan’s intuition is to push it even further, to create whatever havoc he can. That puts him directly in opposition to the president himself, and pretty soon McLanahan and his team find themselves faced with a dire choice. Which is the greater threat: the empire in front of them — or the president behind? Whichever way they choose, life as they know it will never be the same.

Watching the Dark

When Detective Inspector Bill Reid is found murdered in the tranquil grounds of the St Peter’s Police Treatment Centre, and compromising photographs are discovered in his room, DCI Banks is called in to investigate. Because of the possibility of police corruption, he is assigned an officer from Professional Standards, Inspector Joanna Passero, to work closely with him, and he soon finds himself and his methods under scrutiny.

It emerges that Reid’s murder may be linked to the disappearance of an English girl called Rachel Hewitt, in Tallinn, Estonia, six years earlier. The deeper Banks looks into the old case, the more he begins to feel that he has to solve the mystery of Rachel’s disappearance before he can solve Reid’s murder, though Inspector Passero has a different agenda. When Banks and Passero travel to Tallinn to track down leads in the dark, cobbled alleys of the city’s Old Town, it soon become clear that that someone doesn’t want the past stirred up.

Meanwhile, DI Annie Cabbot, just back at work after a serious injury, is following up leads in Eastvale. Her investigations take her to the heart of a migrant labour scam involving a corrupt staffing agency and a loan shark who preys on the poorest members of society. As the action shifts back and forth between Tallinn and Eastvale, it soon becomes clear that crimes are linked in more ways than Banks imagined, and that solving them may put even more lives in jeopardy.

A Chinese cargo ship is hijacked off the coast of Indonesia by ruthless pirates; North Korea is involved in a covert plan to reunify the country by taking control of the South; and in Saudi Arabia, a terrifying new terrorist group has emerged that threatens to destabilize the entire world.

Adrift and psychologically damaged after the brutal murder of his family, ex-covert operative Mark Cole stumbles across a clue which might lead him to the hijacked ship. Realizing that it offers the opportunity to give him a purpose in life, Cole sets out to find the ship in a bid to earn redemption for his past.

From a gun market in the ancient jungles of Cambodia, to the teeming streets of Jakarta, Cole stumbles upon a plot far greater than the simple hijacking of a ship; and as he battles against North Korean agents and Islamic fundamentalists, he promises himself that he will do whatever it takes to stop the unleashing of a terrifying jihad which threatens the Western world like never before.

When Dorinda Dances

Suddenly there was an electrifying fanfare from the orchestra, and bright blue moonlight flared out from the semi-circle of spots on the floor.

Just a sweet little college girl from a nice family taking some extra curricular courses in exotic dancing at a joint called La Roma.

No one could dance like Dorinda. Shayne had to admit she was dynamite, but her explosive act was about to be broken up by murder.

War with Russia

The rapid rise in Russia’s power over the course of the last ten years has been matched by a stunning lack of international diplomacy on the part of its president, Vladimir Putin. One consequence of this, when combined with Europe’s rapidly shifting geopolitics, is that the West is on a possible path toward nuclear war. Former deputy commander of NATO General Sir Richard Shirreff speaks out about this very real peril in this call to arms, a novel that is a barely disguised version of the truth. In chilling prose, it warns allied powers and the world at large that we risk catastrophic nuclear conflict if we fail to contain Russia’s increasingly hostile actions.

In a detailed plotline that draws upon Shirreff’s years of experience in tactical military strategy, Shirreff lays out the most probable course of action Russia will take to expand its influence, predicting that it will begin with an invasion of the Baltic states. And with GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump recently declaring that he might not come to the aid of these NATO member nations were he to become president, the threat of an all-consuming global conflict is clearer than ever.

This critical, chilling fictional look at our current geopolitical landscape, written by a top NATO commander, is both timely and necessary—a must—read for any fan of realistic military thrillers as well as all concerned citizens.

Meet the fighter jocks who fly the F/A-18 Super Hornets of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan — in a novel of supersonic air combat so powerfully real, it could only have been written by a former Navy pilot.


The Gulf War has been over for ten years. It's up to pilots like Brick Maxwell and his glory-seeking commander, Killer DeLancey, to keep the peace by a narrow margin — a margin called the No — Fly Zone. The Iraqi pilots like to buzz the borders — just close enough to shake up the U.S. Hornets' nest. And everyone knows these Hornets can't sting unless the Iraqis show hostile intent.

However, intent is a hard thing to judge when you're in the air and the enemy is flying into your zone. But when an Iraqi MiG does go down, chaos breaks out on both sides of the border — and peace is the last thing on anyone's mind…

Detective Sergeant Joaquin Morales, newly drafted to the area from the suburbs of Montreal, barely has time to unpack his suitcase before he’s thrown into the deep end of the investigation. On Quebec’s outlying Gaspé Peninsula, the truth can be slippery, especially down on the fishermen’s wharves. Interviews drift into idle chit-chat, evidence floats off with the tide and the truth lingers in murky waters. It’s enough to make DS Morales reach straight for a large whisky.

Webcam

Gossec, pionnier de l’art conceptuel, est un mythe vivant. Marié à un top model, il orchestre depuis son château la canonisation médiatique de son centième anniversaire. Alors qu’il rédige ses mémoires, son fils est assassiné. Une chasse à l’homme s’engage dans le monde des galeries, des collectionneurs et des journalistes, jusque sur les rivages les plus secrets de la Méditerranée. Mais la vraie partie se joue sur le web…


Adrien Goetz est maître de conférences en histoire de l’art à l’université Paris IV-Sorbonne. Après un premier roman remarqué, Webcam, dont le héros était un créateur contemporain imaginaire, il a fait revivre trois flamboyantes figures d’artistes du XIXe siècle dans La Dormeuse de Naples et fait paraître deux autres romans : Une petite légende dorée (2004) et À bas la nuit ! (2006).

« Webcam est un premier roman dense et ludique. Qui jette un regard acerbe sur les multiples miroirs de notre société. »

Warrior

Jason King.

Bryson Reed.

Two elite operatives. Two trained killers. Two warriors on a devastating collision course.


Still giddy from a successful operation in Tijuana, one-man-army Jason King‘s celebrations are cut short when a volatile situation arises in Mogadishu, Somalia.

Whisked into the war-torn city, King must assess a Force Recon Marine who abandoned his post to single-handedly foil an international smuggling ring. Bryson Reed left bodies in his wake, and several high-ranking officials want him discharged or thrown into military prison for his actions. King’s organisation has other ideas, sending King to screen Reed as a potential second recruit to the newly formed Black Force.

But when the bullets start flying, King quickly realises he’s knee deep in a mad web of treachery, lies and deception…

Ways to Hide in Winter

Deep in Pennsylvania’s Blue Ridge Mountains, a woman befriends a mysterious newcomer from Uzbekistan, setting in motion this suspenseful, atmospheric, politically charged debut.

After surviving a car crash that left her widowed at twenty-two, Kathleen has retreated to a remote corner of a state park, where she works flipping burgers for deer hunters and hikers—happy, she insists, to be left alone.

But when a stranger appears in the dead of winter—seemingly out of nowhere, kicking snow from his flimsy dress shoes—Kathleen is intrigued, despite herself. He says he’s a student visiting from Uzbekistan, and his worldliness fills her with curiosity about life beyond the valley. After a cautious friendship settles between them, the stranger confesses to a terrible crime in his home country, and Kathleen finds herself in the grip of a manhunt—and face-to-face with secrets of her own.

Steeped in the rugged beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with America’s war on terror raging in the background, Sarah St.Vincent’s Ways to Hide in Winter is a powerful story about violence and redemption, betrayal and empathy… and how we reconcile the unforgivable in those we love.

За Либерией долгое время охотится папский легат, который, зная о карте, начинает слежку за молодым человеком, чтобы в нужный момент опередить его.

  •  Вся Агата Кристи в одном томе
     Кристи Агата
     Детективы и Триллеры, Классический детектив

    Все произведения королевы детективов Агаты Кристи в одной электронной книге. С разделение по циклам. В хронологическом и логическом порядке. Переводчики и даты первых публикаций указаны в конце каждого произведения. Этот однотомник наконец-то избавит вас от вопроса "...а все ли книги Агаты Кристи я читал?..", так как предоставлет возможность не просто читать всё, а читать действительно по порядку.

    Однотомник создан в форматах FB2 и PDF. Убеждённым сторонникам FB2-формата рекомендуется всё-же обратить пристальное внимание именно на PDF-версию этой книги. К примеру, в программе-читалке Xodo (xodo-docs) на 10-дюймовом планшете, она создаёт почти полную иллюзию новых бумажных страниц и легче воспринимается зрением чем FB2-книги, чего автор, собственно, и старается добиться, работая над созданием «дублирующих» pdf-версий.
