Il passato è il posto più difficile a cui tornare. Jim Mackenzie, pilota di elicotteri per metà indiano, lo impara a sue spese quando si ritrova dopo parecchi anni nell'immobile città ai margini della riserva Navajo in cui ha trascorso l'adolescenza e da cui ha sempre desiderato fuggire con tutte le sue forze. Jim è costretto a districarsi fra conti in sospeso e parole mai dette, fra uomini e donne che credeva di aver dimenticato e presenze che sperava cancellate dal tempo. E soprattutto è costretto a confrontarsi con la persona che più ha sfuggito per tutta la vita: se stesso. Ma il coraggio antico degli avi è ancora vivo ed è un'eredità che non si può ignorare quando si percorre la stessa terra. Nel momento in cui una catena di innaturali omicidi sconvolgerà la sua esistenza e quella della tranquilla cittadina dell'Arizona, Jim si renderà conto che è impossibile negare la propria natura quando un passato scomodo e oscuro torna per esigere il suo tributo di sangue.

The voice on the radio. The writing, red as blood. I kill . . . A detective and an FBI agent embark upon the most harrowing case of their careers as they attempt to track down an enigmatic killer in this relentlessly suspenseful thriller. The killer announces his heinous acts in advance with desperate phone calls and ties his crimes together with songs that point to his victims; he then mutilates them and removes their faces. Set in Monte Carlo and featuring an international cast of intriguing characters, the hunt for the deranged perpetrator remains gripping and unsettling, possibly even more so, after the killer's identity is revealed and the detectives must close in on their target before he strikes again.

When Mayor Marsalis's son, Gerald, is found dead in his studio, his body is stained red and arranged like the cartoon character Linus - with a blanket next to his ear and his thumb stuck in his mouth.

Thrown together, Maureen and Jordan race against time to unmask this killer. But who is Snoopy? And who is Pig Pen? And why does this killer find pleasure in arranging his victims like comic-strip characters? In New York nothing is ever quite what it seems...

A serial killer holds New York in his grip. He does not choose his victims. Nor does he watch them die. But then there are too many of them for that. The explosion of a twenty-two storey building, followed by the casual discovery of a letter, lead the police to face up to a dreadful reality: some of New York's buildings were mined at the time of their construction. But which ones? And how many? A young female detective hiding her personal demons behind a tough appearance, and a former press photographer with a past he'd rather forget, and for which he still seeks forgiveness, are the only hope of stopping this psychopath. A man who does not even claim responsibility for his actions. A man who believes himself to be God.

One recent skeleton among ancient bones raises questions—and danger—for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan in this newly repackaged thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs. Tempe Brennan is stuck teaching an archaeology field school for students at UNCC in Charleston, South Carolina. When she stumbles upon a recent skeleton among the ancient bones, she starts asking questions. She’s the expert they might have called in, but lucky for the local police she's already there. The skeleton leads her to a free street clinic where patients have begun to go missing, and some have wound up dead. What is going on and who is to blame? The charismatic televangelist who oversees the clinic? The shady doctor who practices there? Or is it the clinic staff? Ryan is in Montreal, though he may come down for a visit. If he does, Tempe will have to juggle him and Detective Galiano, an old flame, who is in town investigating the disappearance of wealthy young woman. This is a phenomenally high stakes business where one dead body can save a couple of lives, maybe more. Along with the corpses, Tempe investigates the sick moral logic of the mastermind behind the operation. Kathy Reichs has returned Tempe to America and put her in the middle of a sinister trafficking ring that's local and global. The suspense is intense, and the world is riveting. Kathy Reichs’s books are expert, smart, with a taut energy, and this is her best plot and best writing ever.

In the Cambodian hinterlands, a lone Western prisoner suffers through a hot, muddy, interminable sentence. Wasted by repeated torture, lack of sleep, malnutrition, and psychotropic drugs, he has been abandoned. His years of exemplary service to his government mean nothing. No one is coming for him. This is Agent Kasper, a man with a staggering résumé: commercial airline pilot, firearms expert, highly accomplished practitioner of several of the martial arts, a secret agent par excellence. It is this incredible competence that will be his undoing. While investigating Mafia money laundering in Phnom Penh, Kasper is approached by the CIA to track down the source of the so-called supernotes—illegal U.S. banknotes counterfeited so perfectly that they are undetectable, even by sophisticated machines—that are flooding Southeast Asia. With patience, skill, and courage, Kasper uncovers the explosive secret behind them and is badly burned by the truth. Meanwhile, back in Rome, a sharp, scrappy lawyer named Barbara Belli has been hired by Kasper’s family to work for his release. She has contacts in the foreign ministry, and while officials make sweeping claims about moving heaven and earth, nothing happens. It’s more than just creaking bureaucracy. Kasper has really pissed off the wrong people. Based on true events in the life of a former spy, Kasper’s journey makes for a shocking and spellbinding page-turner of petty corruption, high-level betrayal, and state secrets so powerful that governments will protect them by any means.

Giorgio Faletti si accomiata dai suoi lettori con la sua opera più bella, originale e dolente. Una favola morale, che accompagna il lettore attraverso le piccole, meschine, ignoranti bassezze degli uomini, sino a comprendere, attraverso il più innocente e semplice degli sguardi, il senso profondo delle cose. Del loro ruolo. E della fine. Seguiamo una piuma mentre traccia il suo percorso invisibile nel cielo, la vediamo posarsi sul tavolo dove il Re e il Generale definiscono i piani di battaglia per la conquista del Mondo, noncuranti di chi poi dovrà combatterla; ascoltiamo insieme a lei i tentativi del Curato di intercedere a favore dei contadini con il Cardinale privo di fede; attratti da una dissonante melodia volteggiamo dentro al Teatro, per assistere allo spettacolo meraviglioso e crudele della Ballerina dal cuore spezzato: il suo volo ci porterà a conoscere altri sventurati personaggi, finché la piuma non incontrerà lo sguardo dell’unico che saprà capire quello che nessuno prima aveva compreso. Una piuma è fatta per volare «Tracciando il suo invisibile sanscrito nel cielo, la piuma sorvolò un villaggio popolato di uomini, che come tali prestavano attenzione solo a ciò che avveniva in terra, davanti ai loro occhi. Nessuno riuscì a vedere la piuma perché nessuno aveva tempo a sufficienza per alzare gli occhi al cielo e riuscire anche solo a guardarla.»

Sette racconti, sette storie, sette viaggi verso non si sa dove. Intorno a ognuno di noi, dentro a ognuno di noi, c'è sempre una parte oscura, un lato in ombra che la luce della ragione ha timore di illuminare per paura di ritrovarsi sconfitta. E in questa zona buia e fantastica si muovono i personaggi di questa antologia, uomini e donne che si trasformano in vittime o carnefici quando si trovano all'improvviso di fronte a un mondo sconosciuto, a un nuovo volto nello specchio, a quella cupa forma di angoscia che solo l'incomprensibile può trasformare in orrore.
