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.

Les Misrables is one of the best-known novels of the nineteenth century. Taking place in the years during and after the Napoleonic wars, it follows the lives of several characters, particularly the ex-convict Jean Valjean, who struggles for redemption. In this sweeping story, Hugo expounds upon history, architecture, religion, and politics. Harper's wrote that '' Its style is meretricious. Yet its interest and skill and brilliancy are undeniable. Hugo is a consummate literary artist.''

Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. The events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore.

“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

Earnest, awkward and painfully shy, sixteen-year-old Assaf is having the worst summer of his life. With his big sister gone and his best friend suddenly the most popular kid in their class, Assaf spends his days at a lowly summer job in Jerusalem City Hall and his evenings alone, watching television and playing games on the Internet. One morning, Assaf's routine is interrupted by an absurd assignment: to find the owner of a stray yellow labrador. Meanwhile on the other side of the city, Tamar, a talented singer with a lonely, tempestuous soul, undertakes an equally unpromising mission: to rescue a young drug addict from the Jerusalem underworld ... and, eventually, to find her dog.

New from Dave Eggers, National Book Award finalist A Hologram for the King In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter's college tuition, and finally do something great. In A Hologram for the King, Dave Eggers takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and his splintering family together in the face of the global economy's gale-force winds. This taut, richly layered, and elegiac novel is a powerful evocation of our contemporary moment - and a moving story of how we got here. 'A master of the surprising metaphor, Eggers's great skill is in tracking the exuberant chaos of thought, with all its sudden poignancies and unexpected joys' Daily Telegraph 'Among the most influential writers in the English language' GQ 'Eggers can write like an angel' Tablet
