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.

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.

But Stephen King, writing to beat the devil, will do your dreaming for you.

Alice Allevi ha un grosso problema. Si è appena resa conto di non voler più diventare un medico, ma non ha il coraggio di confessarlo a nessuno, e non sa cosa fare del suo futuro. Ma siccome la vita è sorprendente, sarà l’omicidio di una persona vicina alla sua famiglia a far scoprire ad Alice la sua vocazione: la medicina legale. Forse c’entra il suo intuito, che la induce a ficcanasare dove non dovrebbe, mettendo a rischio le indagini. Forse c’entra l’arrivo della sua nuova coinquilina Yukino, una studentessa giapponese che parla come un cartone animato e che stravolge le abitudini, non solo culinarie, di Alice. Forse c’entra nonna Amalia che, con saggezza mista a battute fulminanti, sa come districarsi fra i pettegolezzi di paese. Una cosa è certa: Alice non lo ammetterebbe mai, ma se sceglierà quella specializzazione, è soprattutto per rivedere Claudio Conforti, il giovane medico legale che ha conosciuto durante il sopralluogo. Vestito in maniera impeccabile, sorriso affilato come un bisturi, occhi travolgenti. Arrogante, sprezzante e... Irresistibile.
