Gabriel Larsen è un antropologo molto legato al suo lavoro. Nella sua Firenze continua a tormentarsi sui reperti rinvenuti in uno scavo effettuato in Africa. Sente di dover dare una spiegazione a ciò che sembra apparentemente inspiegabile. La scoperta del corpo mutilato di una ragazza a Malindi fa da propulsore a una spirale di omicidi. Toccherà alla profiler Doris, al patologo Steven e al tenente Robert addentrarsi in uno dei peggiori incubi lastricato di ossa. L’unica prova che si tratti di un serial killer è la presenza di ali di libellula inserite negli occhi dei cadaveri. Questa la sua firma. Ma qual è il significato? Chi conosce il suo segreto? Il killer è rapido, veloce e non perde mai il controllo: segue i meandri oscuri della perversione umana ossessionato dalla poesia e la musica. Una sola certezza; ucciderà ancora. Nessuna donna è al sicuro; le sceglie, le segue, le tortura. Ogni volta che uccide le fantasie diventano più intense, provocanti e violente. Ambientato in uno scenario di toni caldi, profumi e odori che evaporano tra la terra arida e il verde, dove il rosso trova spazio negli incredibili tramonti, si è catapultati nel cuore del Kenya, dove si sente il respiro del popolo Masai.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” — from Invisible Cities In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo — Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear. “Invisible Cities changed the way we read and what is possible in the balance between poetry and prose . . . The book I would choose as pillow and plate, alone on a desert island.” — Jeanette Winterson

In Falling Out of Time, David Grossman has created a genre-defying drama - part play, part prose, pure poetry - to tell the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their lost children. It begins in a small village, in a kitchen, where a man announces to his wife that he is leaving, embarking on a journey in search of their dead son.The man - called simply the 'Walking Man' - paces in ever-widening circles around the town. One after another, all manner of townsfolk fall into step with him (the Net Mender, the Midwife, the Elderly Maths Teacher, even the Duke), each enduring his or her own loss. The walkers raise questions of grief and bereavement: Can death be overcome by an intensity of speech or memory? Is it possible, even for a fleeting moment, to call to the dead and free them from their death? Grossman's answer to such questions is a hymn to these characters, who ultimately find solace and hope in their communal act of breaching death’s hermetic separateness. For the reader, the solace is in their clamorous vitality, and in the gift of Grossman’s storytelling – a realm where loss is not merely an absence, but a life force of its own.
