 Автор: Grafton Sue


From Publishers Weekly

"D" is for Detective Kinsey Millhone, given $25,000 of stolen drug money by a drunkard named Daggett who then dies in a drowning. When she decides to deliver the money to Daggett's designee, a young man who was the sole survivor of an auto accident perpetrated by Daggett, Kinsey finds herself in a dilemma: too many "D's" are after the loot. There are two Mrs. Daggetts, a daughter, the drug dealers and a determined killer who soon claims a second life. At this point, Grafton's lively, well-written adventure develops a deadly flaw. Kinsey comes upon the second victim shortly after he's been shot. Though dying, he is conscious and coherent. Why, then, doesn't she ask who did it? When asked the same thing by the police, she says, "I didn't want the last minutes of his life taken up with that stuff"a humane but unlikely rejoiner from any private eye. Even so, the pleasure of this story comes through. Let's give it a "D" for Dandy.

 Автор: Somoza é Carlos


El cubano (La Habana, 1959) José Carlos Somoza quedó finalista del Nadal del 2.000 con esta complicada novela donde se plantea el conflicto entre el mundo `real` y el literario. La sociedad que imagina Somoza, aunque no necesariamente utópica ni ucrónica (transcurre en un Madrid reconocible y en tiempos contemporáneos), es la de la preponderancia de lo literario, de lo narrativo. Hay una macroeditorial, SALMACIS, omnipotente que además es sólo la terminal ibérica de una todavía mayor multinacional. En esta sociedad donde `todo el mundo escribe`, un escritor de fama, Juan Cobo, ha sufrido un accidente de automóvil y ha quedado amnésico. Recuerda vagamente haber entrevisto a una dama misteriosa de la que cree haberse enamorado y cuya pista sigue. Por aquí aparecen cosas bizarras como un restaurante `literario` donde los comensales, mientras restauran sus fuerzas, escriben en unos folios que les facilitan los siempre solícitos camareros. Algún día estos fragmentos serán editados. También aparece un curioso detective literario que se dedica, entre otras cosas, a detectar plagios e intertextualizaciones varias.

Según explica el flamante propietario de SALMACIS, la novela del siglo XIX presenció el predominio del personaje (Madame Bovary v.g.), el XX contempló el ascenso y la dictadura del autor, pero el XXI es el tiempo del editor. Será -¿es?- el editor quien conciba el libro y luego le de forma, recurriendo al autor como uno más dentro de la industria editorial (junto a correctores, `negros`, ilustradores, maquetadores, etc.), y sus preferencias van por la gran novela coral. Como una que aparece en `Dafne Desvanecida`, en la que se afanan docenas de anónimos escritores a sueldo, plasmando la cotidianidad de un día en la vida de Madrid. La obsesión del editor por las descripciones literales de la realidad no es, en todo caso, casual, ya que él es ciego y, como le gusta recalcar, sólo conoce las cosas a través de la lectura (en su caso no dice si Braille o en voz alta por otra persona).

En este mundo los libros alcanzan su relieve más por la solapa que por el interior. Lo importante, recalca el detective Neirs, es la solapa. Ella nos explica cómo hay que leer el libro. La cuestión no es baladí, y él lo explica. No es igual leer la Biblia como la verdad revelada de un dios omnipotente que leerla como lo que es, una colección de chascarrillos folklóricos de un pueblo de pastores del Sinaí. Pensemos, nos aconseja, en que si las `Mil Y Una Noches` se hubiera interpretado como la Palabra de Dios (es decir, si la `solapa` mantuviera tal), `muchos devotos hubieran muerto por Aladino, o habrían sido torturados por negar a Scherezade…`.

Existen también los `modelos literarios`, algunas bellísimas como esa Musa Gabbler Ochoa que se ofrece, voluptuosa, a Juan Cobo, invitándole a que la maltrate, como acaba de contarle que hacía su padre cuando era niña. Pero Cobo descubre en el apartamento de la Musa a un `voyeur`, no un voyeur sexual, sino literario, que emboscado tras unos biombos toma nota febrilmente de la escena. Después se dará cuenta de que la Gabbler se gana así la vida y le ha metido como involuntario `modelo literario` en su vida, notando cómo les sigue otro aparente `voyeur` que garrapatea subrepticiamente desde los portales y esquinas…

Pero nada es lo que parece. Cobos, en su búsqueda de la bella desconocida, a la que creyó entrever antes de su accidente en el restaurante literario (y que NO es la Gabbler), será sometido a un engaño y a un chantaje. Se le hace creer que un escritor zumbado la tiene secuestrada y que va a matarla entre torturas, como pura experiencia literaria. Mientras haga esto, irá publicando unos textos donde la mujer real va desapareciendo como mero personaje literario. Él debe hacer lo contrario, contra reloj, darle características reales, sin miedo a caer en el prosaísmo (la pinta vulgar, casi fea, aunque con un remoto brillo de belleza en los ojos). Cobos, como un loco, apremiado por el detective, lo hará. Para descubrir luego, de boca del editor de SALMACIS, que todo es mentira, que ha sido inducido a ello para obligarle a escribir. Pero incluso su accidente es falso y la amnesia fue provocada ¡Con su consentimiento! (según demuestra un contrato que él firmó antes de la intervención).

Обложка книги Dagger Strike: A Cairo Sloane Short Story Dagger Strike: A Cairo Sloane Short Story

 Автор: Jones Rob


Scarlet ‘Cairo’ Sloane fired up another Dunhill and waved out the match. Beyond the Escalade’s tinted windows the busy streets of Karachi’s Noor Jahan Market district buzzed with life under the baking Pakistani sun.

She blew the smoke into the SUV’s cab, drawing a weary glance from her superior officer, Captain Clive Hudson. Taking the hint, she lowered the window an inch and redirected her exhaust fumes into the street outside.

As a freshly-minted lieutenant she had transferred out of the Parachute Regiment into the Special Air Service only three months ago and she was still finding her feet in the distinct atmosphere of the world’s most elite Special Forces Regiment. Hudson had worked hard to fit her in, but the note of recommendation from her CO in the Paras — Major Richard Eden — had sealed the deal among the others in the squad. There weren’t many people in this close-knit world who had not heard of the notorious Cairo Sloane.

 Автор: Lescroart John

 Серия: , Abe Glitsky


From New York Times bestseller John Lescroart comes an explosive look at the seductive power of revenge and the terrible costs of justice.

The Curtlees are the most powerful family in San Francisco, unscrupulous billionaires who ve lined every important pocket in the Bay Area in pursuit of their own ascent. So when the family's heir, Ro Curtlee, was convicted of rape and murder a decade ago, the fallout for those who helped to bring him to justice was swift and uncompromising. The jury foreman was fired from his job and blacklisted in his industry. The lead prosecutor was pushed off the fast track, her dreams of becoming DA dashed. And head homicide detective Abe Glitsky was reassigned to the police department s payroll office. Eventually, all three were able to rebuild their fragile, damaged lives.

And then Ro Curtlee's lawyers won him a retrial, and he was released from jail.

Within twenty-four hours, a fire destroys the home of the original trial's star witness, her abused remains discovered in the ruins. When a second fire claims a participant in the case, Abe is convinced: Ro is out for revenge. But with no hard evidence and an on-the-take media eager to vilify anyone who challenges Ro, can Abe stop the violence before he finds himself in its crosshairs? How much more can he sacrifice to put Ro back behind bars? And just how far across the line is he prepared to go in pursuit of justice?

 Серия: Alan Craik


During a fleet exercise in India, Alan Craik faces a minefield of explosive events that threaten to tear the country and a U.S. battlegroup apart. A military base is attacked by "fringe elements," an Indian submarine mutinies and then shoots down a U.S. Navy aircraft, and a group of Indian scientists are killed when they are attacked with Sarin gas. Craik, ignoring the conventional wisdom that the incidents are unrelated, believes that a fanatical group have control of certain elements of both the Indian government and its armed forces. Then the rebels seize part of India's nuclear arsenal. Suddenly, a U.S. carrier battle group joins Pakistan, China, and Saudi Arabia on the target list. The world is faced with the spectacle of a nuclear-capable nation in the hands of a self-destructive religious cult, and it's up to Craik and a team of specialists to re-capture the nukes and prevent massive devastation. But with time running out and the cult leader still at large, are they already too late?

 Серия: The Twelfth Imam


All eyes are on the Middle East. Israel has successfully launched a first strike on Iran, taking out all of their nuclear sites and six of their nuclear warheads — and causing The Twelfth Imam to order a full-scale retaliation. US President William Jackson threatens to support a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish State for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression.

Meanwhile, CIA operative David Shirazi has infiltrated the Iranian regime and intercepted information indicating that two Iranian nuclear warheads survived the attack and have been moved to a secure and undisclosed location. In danger not only from the ongoing missile strikes on Iran but also from the increasingly hostile and suspicious governments of multiple countries, David and his team are in a race against time to find the remaining nuclear warheads before disaster strikes.

Amazon.com Review

Setting: Three Sisters Island, coast of New England, present day

Sensuality rating: 6

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts's new Three Sisters Island trilogy is pure magic! No, I mean really magic. An intriguing combination of The Witches of Eastwick and Sleeping With the Enemy, Dance Upon the Air introduces readers to the idyllic town of Three Sisters Island. Reputedly conjured by a trio of sisters seeking to escape the Salem witch-hunts, the island remains a place of quiet refuge for one and all, including pretty Nell Channing who arrives in town afraid of her own shadow, with few possessions and no past. But the warm, sunny days and cool, windswept nights, as well as the loving concern of new friends-especially hunky sheriff Zack Todd-soon lure skittish Nell into a much-welcome fresh life. Nell's new boss, the captivatingly lovely bookstore owner Mia Devlin (look for Mia's story, hopefully, in the not-too-distant future), wonders from what or whom Nell is running. Mia treats Nell as she would a sister, which isn't too far off the mark, helping Nell discover and explore her inner resources while Zack's romantic attentions bring a rosy glow to Nell's cheeks and to her future. But something wicked this way comes… Will Nell be ready to face and conquer her past? Even with the love and support of Mia, Zack, and Zack's fellow police officer, his peppery, down-to-earth sister Ripley, Nell has the fight of her life-the fight for her life-on her hands. Roberts continues to delight fans and create new believers with her talent and imagination.

From Publishers Weekly

The first installment of Roberts's newest trilogy set on Three Sisters island invokes the sensitive characterizations and magic that distinguished her previous trilogy (Jewels of the Sun; Tears of the Moon; Heart of the Sea). An enchanted island off the coast of Massachusetts, Three Sisters was formed as a sanctuary by three frightened witches fleeing persecution. Although the witches found peace on the island, each of them entered into an ill-fated relationship and died tragically. Now their descendants Nell Channing, Ripley Todd and Mia Devlin have to break the pattern set by their foremothers, or the island will sink. This first book focuses on Nell, a newcomer to the island who escaped her abusive husband by staging her death. Nell is unaware that she's a witch, but she is instinctively drawn to the island and secures a job as a chef in the caf‚ owned by Mia. Between coping with her bleak memories and deciding whether she can give her heart to Zach Todd, Ripley's brother and the island sheriff, Nell has little time to digest the discovery that she's a witch. In the end, however, Nell will have to come to terms with her newfound powers so that she can fight her all-too-demented husband. It's probably witchcraft that Roberts can turn out so many books and still create something that's sexy and charming, but in this tale, it's evident that she hasn't lost her fairy touch. (June 5)Forecast: No stranger to bestseller lists, Roberts triumphed in 2000 with the release of two hardcovers and eight mass market paperbacks, seven of which sold in the millions. National radio advertising and print advertisements in USA Today will ensure that her latest hits the big time as well.

 Серия: Commissaire Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg


Depuis sa rupture avec Camille, Adamsberg est devenu l'ombre de lui-même. Il en est même à courir après une revenante ! De tombes ouvertes en reliques disparues, d'évasion de prison en sacrifices d'animaux, il ne manquait plus que deux cadavres retrouvés égorgés dans Paris. La nonne, morte en 1771, qui hante sa nouvelle maison serait-elle responsable de ces drames ? Adamsberg a du mal à y croire. Et pourtant.

Humour, audace, génie des atmosphères et des personnages secondaires, écriture à la fois épurée et évocatrice… Dans les bois éternels, entre polar et tragédie grecque, est un petit bijou.
