Una vita intensa e complicata quella di Stella, pastore tedesco, quasi come quella dell’autrice, diventata a un certo punto la sua proprietaria. Stella nonostante le molte difficoltà che ha incontrato nella sua esistenza, peraltro quasi tutte dovute alla cattiveria o all’incuria umana, ce l’ha fatta. Nel libro, nonostante ormai per forza di cose lei non ci sia più, non si parla della sua morte quindi si può leggere tranquillamente. Non ci saranno, alla fine della storia, peraltro autentica, singhiozzi e sospiri perché quel cane che per tante pagine ci ha fatto ridere e suscitato tenerezza, muore. Nel libro ci si commuove e si ride, del resto chi ha avuto a che fare con gli animali sa bene che questo succede con loro. Ma si riflette anche, e ci si appassiona alla sua non comune storia, allo sviluppo delle indagini della polizia, alle ipotesi sull’identità del colpevole. Con lei l’autrice ha potuto e dovuto intraprendere un lungo percorso, spesso difficile ma sempre appagante, per rendere entrambe esseri viventi educati e consapevoli. Attraverso questa storia, l’autrice vuole sensibilizzare le persone al rispetto vero per gli animali, a far loro posto nella propria vita e non solo nel proprio giardino, a rispettarli e a non cercare sempre e solo di cambiare il loro comportamento senza mai mettere in discussione il proprio.

In 1978 Christiane F. testified against a man who had traded heroin for sex with teenage girls at Berlin’s notorious Zoo Station. In the course of that trial, Christiane F. became connected with two journalists, and over time they helped to turn her story—which begins with a dysfunctional but otherwise fairly normal childhood—into an acclaimed bestseller. Christiane F.’s rapid descent into heroin abuse and prostitution is shocking, but the boredom, the longing for acceptance, the thrilling risks, and even the musical obsessions that fill out the rest of Christiane’s existence will be familiar to every reader. Christiane F.’s Berlin is a strange and often terrifying place, but it’s also a place that remains closer than we might think….

Elvis Cole is back... With his acclaimed bestsellers, Hostage (a New York Times Notable Book) and Demolition Angel, Robert Crais drew raves for his unstoppable pacing, edgy characterizations, and cinematic prose. Now, in The Last Detective, Crais returns to his signature character, Los Angeles private investigator Elvis Cole, in a masterful page-turner that probes the meaning of family and the burdens of the past. Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained. When she moved from Louisiana to join Elvis in Los Angeles, she never dreamed that violence would so easily touch her life -- but then the unthinkable happens. While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Desperate to believe that the boy has run away, evidence soon mounts to suggest a much darker scenario. Joining forces with his enigmatic partner, Joe Pike, Elvis frantically searches for Ben with the help of LAPD Detective Carol Starkey, as Lucy's wealthy, oil-industry ex-husband attempts to wrest control of the investigation. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and Joe are forced to consider a more troubling lead -- one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past. Venturing deep inside a complex psyche, Crais explores Elvis's need for family - the military that embraced him during a troubled adolescence, his rock-solid partnership with Pike, and his floundering relationship with Lucy - as they race the clock in their search for Ben. The Last Detective is Robert Crais' richest, most intense tale of suspense yet. From the Hardcover edition.
