Raphael – un giovane scrittore di successo, ora in crisi creativa, e ragazzo padre – da sei mesi ha una relazione con Anna. Anna è bella, dolce, intelligente, eppure nasconde qualcosa. Durante un weekend d’amore in Costa Azzurra, a sole tre settimane dal loro matrimonio, Raphael non riesce a trattenersi e, con insistenza, chiede ad Anna dettagli sul suo passato. Anna, esasperata, mostra a Raphael un’immagine dalla galleria fotografica del suo tablet, urlando: “Vedi questo? L’ho fatto io.” Raphael inorridisce alla vista di quella immagine e fugge via. Un gesto di cui subito si pente. Ma al suo ritorno, Anna non è più lì. Raphael la cerca sul cellulare, che risulta spento. Torna a Parigi, dove spera di ritrovarla, ma Anna non è a Parigi. Raphael la ama, è pronto a perdonarle tutto. Ma deve ritrovarla. Chiede aiuto a un suo amico, ex poliziotto, Marc Caradec. Insieme perquisiscono la casa di Anna, ma il buio diventa ancora più profondo, e il mistero sempre più denso: nell’appartamento trovano 400.000 euro in contanti e due carte di identità false. Dunque Anna, forse, non è Anna; e le reticenze della donna sulla propria vita non erano senza motivi; e quell’immagine, spaventosa, rimane, per Raphael, una delle poche tracce da seguire per scoprire la verità sulla persona che ama.

What do you get when you cross a journalist and a banker? A brewery, of course. "A great city should have great beer. New York finally has, thanks to Brooklyn. Steve Hindy and Tom Potter provided it. Beer School explains how they did it: their mistakes as well as their triumphs. Steve writes with a journalist's skepticism-as though he has forgotten that he is reporting on himself. Tom is even less forgiving-he's a banker, after all. The inside story reads at times like a cautionary tale, but it is an account of a great and welcome achievement." —Michael Jackson, The Beer Hunter(r) "An accessible and insightful case study with terrific insight for aspiring entrepreneurs. And if that's not enough, it is all about beer!" —Professor Murray Low, Executive Director, Lang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School "Great lessons on what every first-time entrepreneur will experience. Being down the block from the Brooklyn Brewery, I had firsthand witness to their positive impact on our community. I give Steve and Tom's book an A++!" —Norm Brodsky, Senior Contributing Editor, Inc. magazine "Beer School is a useful and entertaining book. In essence, this is the story of starting a beer business from scratch in New York City. The product is one readers can relate to, and the market is as tough as they get. What a fun challenge! The book can help not only those entrepreneurs who are starting a business but also those trying to grow one once it is established. Steve and Tom write with enthusiasm and insight about building their business. It is clear that they learned a lot along the way. Readers can learn from these lessons too." —Michael Preston, Adjunct Professor, Lang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School, and coauthor, The Road to Success: How to Manage Growth "Although we (thankfully!) never had to deal with the Mob, being held up at gunpoint, or having our beer and equipment ripped off, we definitely identified with the challenges faced in those early days of cobbling a brewery together. The revealing story Steve and Tom tell about two partners entering a business out of passion, in an industry they knew little about, being seriously undercapitalized, with an overly naive business plan, and their ultimate success, is an inspiring tale." —Ken Grossman, founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Parigi, un appartamento senza inquilini nel centro della città, silenzioso, troppo perfetto per non nascondere misteri. Madeline, una giovane poliziotta di Londra, lo prende in affitto per cercare un po’ di riposo, dopo una serie di casi non risolti e la crisi della sua storia d’amore. Per un errore tecnico, nella stessa casa arriva anche Gaspard, venuto a Parigi per isolarsi e scrivere in tranquillità la sua nuova opera teatrale. Queste due anime solitarie e irrequiete sono così costrette a vivere assieme per qualche giorno. L’appartamento era di proprietà del celebre pittore Sean Lorenz che lo usava anche come studio, e in quelle stanze si respira ancora la sua passione per i colori e per la luce. Distrutto dall’assassinio del giovane figlio, Lorenz è morto l’anno precedente l’arrivo dei due inquilini, lasciando in eredità tre dipinti, che tuttavia risultano oggi scomparsi. Affascinati dal suo genio e colpiti dai molti misteri che avvolgono la sua vita e, soprattutto, la sua morte, Madeline e Gaspard decidono di unire le forze per ritrovare le opere dell’artista. Ma per arrivare a scoprire il segreto che si nasconde dietro l’enigmatica figura di Sean Lorenz, Madeline e Gaspard dovranno affrontare i loro demoni in un’indagine che li cambierà per sempre. Guillaume Musso, lo scrittore francese più amato, firma, dopo La ragazza di Brooklyn, un nuovo thriller, travolgente e ipnotico. Un tuffo vertiginoso nel misterioso mondo della creazione artistica e dei fantasmi che la animano.
