Alice Allevi, giovane specializzanda in medicina legale, ha ormai imparato a resistere a tutto. O quasi a tutto. Da brava allieva, resiste alle pressioni dei superiori, che le hanno affidato la supervisione di una specializzanda... proprio a lei, che fatica a supervisionare se stessa! E lo dimostra anche la sua tortuosa vita sentimentale. Alice, infatti, soffre ancora della sindrome da cuore in sospeso che la tiene in bilico tra due uomini tanto affascinanti quanto agli opposti: Arthur, diventato l’Innominabile dopo troppe sofferenze, e Claudio, il medico legale più rampante dell’istituto, bello e incorreggibile, autentico diavolo tentatore. E infine, Alice resiste, o ci prova, all’istinto di lanciarsi in fantasiose teorie investigative ogni volta che, in segreto, collabora alle indagini del commissario Calligaris. Il quale invece dimostra di nutrire in lei più fiducia di quanta ne abbia Alice stessa. Ma è difficile far fronte a tutto questo insieme quando, nell’estate più rovente da quando vive a Roma, Alice incappa in un caso che minaccia di coinvolgerla fin troppo. Il ritrovamento dello scheletro di un giovane attore teatrale, che si credeva fosse scomparso anni prima e che invece è stato ucciso, è solo il primo atto di un’indagine intricata e complessa. Alice dovrà fare così i conti con una galleria di personaggi che, all’apparenza limpidi e sinceri, dietro le quinte nascondono segreti inconfessabili. Alice lo sa: nessun segreto è per sempre. E chi non impara a tenere a bada i propri segreti finisce col lasciarsene dominare... fino al più tragico e crudele dei finali.

Six-year-old Helen and Ellie are identical twins, but Helen is smarter, more popular, and their mother's favorite. Ellie, on the other hand, requires special instruction at school, is friendless, and is punished at every turn. Until they decide to swap places--just for fun, and just for one day--and Ellie refuses to switch back. Everything of Helen's, from her toys to her friends to her identity, now belongs to her sister. With those around her oblivious to her plight, the girl who used to be Helen loses her sense of self and withdraws into a spiral of behavioral problems, delinquency, and mental illness. In time, she's not even sure of her memory of the switch. Twenty-five years later, she receives a call that threatens to pull her back into her sister's dangerous orbit. Will she take this chance to face her past?

A brutal killer is on the streets of Rome. He leaves no trace. And shows no mercy. A series of gruesome murders leaves the police force in Rome reeling, with no real clues or hard evidence to follow. Assigned to the case is Sandra Vega, a brilliant forensic analyst, struggling to come to terms with the crimes and her own past. Sandra's shared history with Marcus, a member of the ancient Penitenzeri - a unique Italian team, linked to the Vatican, and trained in the detection of true evil, means that the two are brought together again in the pursuit of a malignant killer. Soon Marcus and Sandra notice the emergence of a disturbing pattern running alongside the latest killings - and every time they think they have grasped a fragment of the truth, they are led down yet another terrifying path. A sensational new literary thriller from the bestselling author of The Whisperer, this novel captures the beautiful atmosphere of Rome and explores its dark and hidden secrets.

Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as an e-book. One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.
