Un padre e le due figlie gemelle scompaiono improvvisamente nel nulla. Tutto è avvolto da un fitto mistero, solo la tenacia di Helen Baker, moglie e madre degli scomparsi, porterà alla luce risvolti oscuri. L’intrigo che si cela insidioso, avrà bisogno di forza sconvolgente per essere dipanato. Marcus Cox e Lexi Allen, ingaggiati da Helen per risolvere il caso, faranno emergere segreti inconfessabili. Una rete internazionale sullo sfondo; vedrà uomini diabolici impegnati in un’assidua lotta, all’insegna di scontri cruenti ed efferati. Una storia ricca di azione, suspense e carica di emozioni ad alta tensione; solo una costante risulterà decisiva: la caccia. Quella stessa caccia che deterrà il potere assoluto nel mostrare la trama. Il Blackwater, un fiume sinuoso nel Sud dell’Irlanda, apre lo scenario scabroso a tutta la sequenza inarrestabile di eventi. Da qui, la potenza delle sue acque, ci trascinerà in un vortice dirompente, degno del più irrefrenabile e temibile countdown!

«Io credo negli spiriti», disse Felicidad.«Io nell’amore», rispose Aníbal.È il 1950 e Felicidad Hidalgo trascorre le sue giornate nella panetteria della zia, avvolta dalla fragranza del pane appena sfornato e dalla soffice nuvola bianca della farina. Dolce e remissiva, la ragazza ha però un carattere forte, temprato dalle difficoltà di un’infanzia trascorsa tra le montagne di Portorico. A soli dieci anni, infatti, è stata strappata alla sua poverissima e numerosa famiglia d’origine e affidata alla zia, una donna fredda e scontrosa che la tratta quasi come una serva. Ma proprio quando Felicidad si è rassegnata a una vita infelice e senza affetti, Aníbal Acevedo, un affascinante rubacuori, oltrepassa la soglia della panetteria. Riuscirà a conquistare Felicidad, a vincere le sue resistenze e a portarla con sé in America? Io credo nell’amore è una storia intensa e romantica che vi farà innamorare di una terra lontana e seducente, dalle atmosfere indimenticabili e dallo spirito ribelle. Travolgente, romantica e sensuale: una storia d’amore, speranza e passione. E del coraggio di chi abita lontano dalla propria terra.Un romanzo che vi farà innamorare«Io credo nell’amore è più di una bella storia romantica, è un romanzo sui rapporti di classe e la discriminazione razziale. Il messaggio è potente, la scrittura magistrale. Per i lettori che amano le storie vere, la cultura latina, i diritti umani e civili, ma anche per tutti quelli che vogliono solo leggere un buon libro, un libro davvero eccezionale.»Midwest Book Review«Una storia intrigante e sensuale, la cui forza è accompagnata da descrizioni vivide e personaggi perfetti.»The Journal Network Marisel Veraè cresciuta a Chicago. La sua famiglia è d’origine portoricana. Oggi vive in Illinois con il marito e i figli. Ha vinto per due volte il premio Willow Review Literary Magazine.

Italy's Margins explores how certain places and social groups in Italy have been defined as marginal or peripheral since unification. This marginalization involves not only concrete policies but also ways of perceiving people and places as outside society's centre. The author looks closely at how photography and writing have supported political and social exclusion and, conversely, how they have been enlisted to challenge it. Five cases are examined: the peripheries of Italy's major cities after unification; its East African colonies in the 1930s; the less developed areas of its south in the 1950s; its psychiatric hospitals before the reforms of the late 1970s; and its 'nomad camps' after 2000. Each chapter takes its lead from a symptomatic photograph and is followed by other pictures and extracts from written texts. These allow the reader to examine how social marginalization is discursively performed by cultural products.

You remember Hannibal Lecter: gentleman, genius, cannibal. Seven years have passed since Dr. Lecter escaped from custody. And for seven years he's been at large, free to savor the scents, the essences, of an unguarded world. But intruders have entered Dr. Lecter's world, piercing his new identity, sensing the evil that surrounds him. For the multimillionaire Hannibal left maimed, for a corrupt Italian policeman, and for FBI agent Clarice Starling, who once stood before Lecter and who has never been the same, the final hunt for Hannibal Lecter has begun. All of them, in their separate ways, want to find Dr. Lecter. And all three will get their wish. But only one will live long enough to savor the reward.... From the Paperback edition.

Published here for the first time in English in a brilliant translation by the peerless Gregory Rabassa, The Discovery of America by the Turks is a whimsical Brazilian take on The Taming of the Shrew that will remind readers why Jorge Amado is to Portuguese-American literature what Jorge Luis Borges is to Spanish-American literature. It follows the adventures of two Arab immigrants-"Turks," as Brazilians call them-who arrive in the rough Brazilian frontier in 1903 and become involved in a merchant's farcical attempt to marry off his shrew of a daughter.

"I believe in Spirits," Felicidad said. "I believe in making love," said Aníbal. In a small town in Puerto Rico, Felicidad Hidalgo spends her days serving busybodies in her aunt's bakery, and her nights dreaming of home. Closing her eyes she can almost hear the sweet songs of tree frogs, reminding her of the mountain village of her childhood, and the family she hasn't seen in nearly a decade. Her new life in town has delivered her from poverty, but not from loneliness-until the afternoon Aníbal walks through the door. Aníbal Acevedo is not in need of a wife, but when he meets Felicidad while visiting family, he is stunned by the power of his attraction. Almost before he realizes what's happening, he has taken the girl into his bed and into his home-in Chicago. Yet soon the young lovers discover that married life is anything but idyllic. Can they find the courage to overcome the obstacles and temptations of their new world and rediscover the passion they once shared? Or will each find love and redemption in the arms of another? "Everything you want in a novel-flawed, complicated characters, lush descriptions, breathtaking plot, and a fierce beating heart." -Tayari Jones, award-winning author "A deeply felt and satisfying tale that brings attention to the courage required to sustain hope, love, and passion as a stranger in a new land." -Jonis Agee, award-winning author
