It's early morning on New Year's Eve, and 9-year-old Massimo wakes up to a long, doleful cry and the disconcerting image of his dad being supported by two strangers. Inexplicably, his mother has disappeared, leaving only a vague trail of perfume in his room and her dressing gown bundled up at the foot of his bed. Where has she gone? Will she ever come back? And will Massimo be able to say sorry, after quarrelling with her the night before?

"Fai bei sogni" è la storia di un segreto celato in una busta per quarant'anni. La storia di un bambino, e poi di un adulto, che imparerà ad affrontare il dolore più grande, la perdita della mamma, e il mostro più insidioso: il timore di vivere. "Fai bei sogni" è dedicato a quelli che nella vita hanno perso qualcosa. Un amore, un lavoro, un tesoro. E rifiutandosi di accettare la realtà, finiscono per smarrire se stessi. Come il protagonista di questo romanzo. Uno che cammina sulle punte dei piedi e a testa bassa perché il cielo lo spaventa, e anche la terra. "Fai bei sogni" è soprattutto un libro sulla verità e sulla paura di conoscerla. Immergendosi nella sofferenza e superandola, ci ricorda come sia sempre possibile buttarsi alle spalle la sfiducia per andare al di là dei nostri limiti. Massimo Gramellini ha raccolto gli slanci e le ferite di una vita priva del suo appiglio più solido. Una lotta incessante contro la solitudine, l'inadeguatezza e il senso di abbandono, raccontata con passione e delicata ironia. Il sofferto traguardo sarà la conquista dell'amore e di un'esistenza piena e autentica, che consentirà finalmente al protagonista di tenere i piedi per terra senza smettere di alzare gli occhi al cielo.

From the author of SOPHIE'S WORLD, a modern fairy tale with a philosophical twist. 'My father died eleven years ago. I was only four then. I never thought I'd hear from him again, but now we're writing a book together' To Georg Røed, his father is no more than a shadow, a distant memory. But then one day his grandmother discovers some pages stuffed into the lining of an old red pushchair. The pages are a letter to Georg, written just before his father died, and a story, 'The Orange Girl'. But 'The Orange Girl' is no ordinary story - it is a riddle from the past and centres around an incident in his father's youth. One day he boarded a tram and was captivated by a beautiful girl standing in the aisle, clutching a huge paper bag of luscious-looking oranges. Suddenly the tram gave a jolt and he stumbled forward, sending the oranges flying in all directions. The girl simply hopped off the tram leaving Georg's father with arms full of oranges. Now, from beyond the grave, he is asking his son to help him finally solve the puzzle of her identity.

In a riveting debut thriller, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first page to the last. Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is suffering from an ugly case of déjà vu. For the second time in a year, a beautiful teenage girl has disappeared off the streets of Duluth, Minnesota—gone without a trace, like a bitter gust off Lake Superior. The two victims couldn't be more different. First it was Kerry McGrath, bubbly, sweet sixteen. And now Rachel Deese, strange, sexually charged, a wild child. The media hounds Stride to catch a serial killer, and as the search carries him from the icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions. And Stride finds his own life changed forever by the secrets he uncovers. Secrets that stretch across time in a web of lies, death, and illicit desire. Secrets that are chillingly...immoral.

Six severed arms are discovered buried in a forest clearing. They are arranged in a mysterious circle, and appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and thirteen. But the rest of the bodies are nowhere to be found. Criminologist Goran Gavila is given the case. A dishevelled, instinctively rebellious man, he is forced to work with young female police officer Mila Vasquez. Lithe, boyish, answering to no one, Mila has a reputation as a specialist in missing children. She also has a tragic history of her own that has left her damaged, unable to feel or to relate to others. Theirs is a fiery but strangely affecting working relationship - and as they uncover more secrets about the dark secrets in the forest, their lives are increasingly in each other's hands... A gripping literary thriller that has taken Italy by storm, The Whisperer has been as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels. It is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent literary novel that is also utterly unputdownable.

Behind this memorable story of the turning point in the lives of two lovers, one risen from the gutter and the other unashamedly drifting towards it, lies the ugly background of the seamy side of New York life. In this book, Harold Robbins tells of the trial of Maryann Flood, a 'model' at 79 Park Avenue, who has been arrested on charges of procurement, bribery and blackmail; and of the dilemma of Mike Keyes, who is conducting the prosecution. For fate seems to have played against Mike in offering him a chance of advancement in his career, which he would dearly like to take, through the trial of the woman he loves and who loves him. Here is a brilliantly-told story of the love of two people trying to bridge the gap between the Law and the New York underworld, under the shadow of the sordid reign of prostitution.

Philip Roth meets Evelyn Waugh in a blackly comic portrayal of prep-school adolescence. Motefiore creates a young anti-hero as hilarious as Just William, as monstrous as Stalin himself, whose rite of passage shows what happens when a game of power grows into a dangerous obsession.
