 Автор: án Manuel ázquez


Tras la aparición de sus ensayos literarios, reunidos bajo el título de La literatura en la construcción de la ciudad democrática (Crítica), simultáneamente, el padre del más popular de los detectives españoles de ficción incide en O César o nada en otra novela de género: la histórica. Tiene también sus reglas y limitaciones y permite suponer en el que la emprende un amplio conocimiento histórico del período elegido. No se trata, en este caso, de la España de la inmediata postguerra (que sería también ya novela histórica y que Vázquez Montalbán utilizó en otras producciones marginales a la serie de Carvalho). En esta ocasión, la empresa hubo de resultarle mucho más difícil y compleja, porque se trata de narrar las intrigas de una Roma renacentista dominada por la familia valenciana de los Borgia. Los personajes que protagonizan la historia son complejos héroes que hemos conocido a través de la historia, la literatura y el arte.

Ninguno de los pecados de la época están ausentes: la simonía (la compra del papado por parte de Rodrigo Borja), los crímenes de estado, las traiciones reales y el incesto atribuido a Lucrecia Borgia («conseguiría ser a la vez hija, esposa y nuera de su padre, según consta en los libelos de la estatua de Pasquino»). Permanece incólume el valor que los Borgia atribuyen a los lazos familiares. Vázquez Montalbán, en la intimidad, les hace hablar a ratos en valenciano. Reproduce también poemas en italiano y abundantes citas latinas clásicas y bíblicas. La corte se lamenta de la invasión de los `catalanes`. Pero bajo el rico anecdotario que imprime interés a la narración subyacen conceptos políticos básicos: la ciudad-estado frente al Estado, el papel temporal del Papado, la necesidad de una Reforma que culminará, tras la muerte de César, en uno de sus descendientes, quien seguirá las huellas de San Ignacio de Loyola.

 Автор: Grafton Sue


Amazon.com Review

Wise-cracking, staunchly independent, and chronically curious, Grafton's gritty gumshoe Kinsey Millhone is back. This time, the alphabet series star will take on the toughest case to date: her past. What begins as a random phone call from a "storage space scavenger" (someone who buys the contents of defaulted storage units) leads Kinsey to a box of old papers and personal effects that her ex-husband, Mickey Magruder, left behind. Inside, she finds a 15-year-old unsent letter from a bartender that, among other things, reveals her former hubby was having an affair. The letter also contains details about the murder of a transient-a crime for which Mickey was blamed. Although never convicted, Mickey was ruined-losing his job, wife, and friends. But 15 years later, Kinsey realizes that foul play may have been involved in the murder, a deadly temptation for her.

Die-hard fans will especially enjoy Kinsey's self-disclosure-something she's infamous for not doing-about her childhood, the fate of her parents, and the randy details of her first marriage. A very vulnerable and interesting side to Kinsey's character is also revealed when her obsessive-compulsive fact-finding bent is mixed up with matters of the heart.

A fast, fun read, O Is for Outlaw is packed with Grafton's clear, colorful imagery and signature metaphors: "Our recollection of the past is not simply distorted by our faulty perception of events remembered, but skewed by those forgotten. The memory is like orbiting twin stars, one visible, one dark, the trajectory of what's evident forever affected by the gravity of what's concealed."

 Автор: Mathew David


BILLY ALFRETH IS SERVING FIVE YEARS as an inmate at Dellacotte Young Offenders Institute, in the north of England. Billy has memories of being attacked by three men, but CCTV footage doesn’t bear out his account and he is locked up for stabbing one man. Billy’s world overlaps with that of Ronald Dott, a serial rapist, who claims to know Billy from when he was a child, only that is impossible. And then there is Kate Thistle, ostensibly at Dellacotte to study prison slang, but inordinately interested in both Dott and Billy. As strange events occur and his reality begins to unravel, Billy learns of the Oasis, and a prison ship, and of a desert town called Hospital, where time works in mysterious ways. Dott tells Billy of their terrible entwined histories… whether or not Billy wants to be convinced of what he cannot understand.

“I experienced an acute, often surreal, sense of an offender’s pathology, with all its traps, humour and contradictions. O My Days is a tour de force of powerful writing. It’s demanding, gruelling yet always honest, insightful and finally moving. It explores areas that serious fiction rarely travels to. A quite remarkable novel.”

Alan Price, author of Outfoxing Hyenas

“This is a writer who has been there, viewed with compassion, and reported back. There is a new mythos here, something that feels ancient and sand-blasted and unfathomable, but it is revealed within the most modern of contexts. Highly recommended.”

Paul Meloy, author of Islington Crocodiles

 Серия: Jack Ryan


Marine officer. CIA analyst. President. Jack Ryan has devoted his life to protecting the United States. What if this time, he can’t? President Ryan and the Campus return in the latest entry in Tom Clancy’s #1 New York Times-bestselling series.


Freedom may have finally arrived in Iran. As protests break out across the country, the media rejoices over the so-called Persian Spring. Western leaders are ecstatic. Members of Congress and the Cabinet clamor to back the rebels. Only President Jack Ryan remains wary.

Meanwhile, he has plenty to handle at home. A deadly strain of flu is ravaging the United States as spring floods decimate the Southeast. An unethical senator wants to bring down the Ryan presidency and is willing to lean on fabricated bot-planted stories to do it.

But the scariest story is the most closely guarded one. Two Russian nuclear missiles have been hijacked. The Campus gets their first break when Jack Junior connects with a rogue Russian intelligence officer in Afghanistan — only to be abducted soon after arriving. John Clark and the rest of the Campus team race to track the missiles and rescue their colleague.

As sensationalized stories spin out of control and the stolen missiles remain out of reach, President Ryan’s toughest challenge emerges: How do you meet an enemy head on, when he won’t even show you his face?

 Автор: Lavender Will


"A taut and timely thriller that explores the dark side of academia." – Karin Slaughter

***

A complex conspiracy involving the writing of a book drives Lavender's compelling debut, a thriller that will strike some as a mix of John Fowles's The Magus and Stephen King's The Shining. At Indiana's Winchester University, three students-Brian House, Dennis Flaherty and Mary Butler-are taking Logic and Reasoning 204, taught by enigmatic Professor Williams. They quickly learn this is a course like no other. Their single assignment is to find a missing 18-year-old girl, Polly, in six weeks time-or else, Williams asserts, she will be murdered. Is this merely an academic exercise? As Williams produces clues, including photographs of Polly and her associates, the students begin to wonder where homework ends and actual homicide begins. Together with Brian and Dennis, Mary ventures off campus in search of Polly into a world of crumbling towns, decrepit trailers and hints at crimes old and new. A rapid-fire plot offsets thin characterization, though the conspiracy becomes so all-encompassing, so elaborate, that readers may feel a bit like Mary when baffled by her quest: This is what she felt like: led, played, not in control of anything she did.

 Серия: Art Jefferson Thriller


October 1962. It was a time when the world came to the brink of nuclear Armageddon over an island nation ninety miles off the U.S. mainland. Now, decades later, the past is about to be revisited.

The world has changed, but not enough for some. As one element of the United States government strives to build a secure relationship with a tenuous Russian government, another has engineered a plan to topple the Western Hemisphere's last Communist dictator-Castro.

But the aging revolutionary will not go quietly, and, as the CIA-supported rebel elements in his military launch a widespread assault on his leadership, the Cuban dictator secretly readies his trump card-a decades-old nuclear missile. Intelligence reports warn Washington of the weapon, setting a highly secret search in motion. Moscow, however, sees only suspect actions that threaten to destroy all the progress in post-Cold War relations.

As the superpowers brace for a familiar, apocalyptic game of blind man's bluff with each other, elements across the globe struggle to prevent the final countdown to a nuclear apocalypse. From Los Angeles, where FBI Agents Art Jefferson and Francine 'Frankie' Aguirre seek to unravel the mystery of a murdered Cuban privy to Castro's secret weapon, to Cuba, where the military's Special Operations Detachment DELTA races to execute a plan to secure the rogue missile before it can be launched, Ryne Douglas Pearson combines a masterful technical accuracy with an eerie evocation of past confrontations to present both a provocative history lesson and a riveting novel of suspense.

Flagg, jeden z największych żyjących magów, znał wszystkie zabójcze substancje, a każda z nich była straszniejsza od poprzedniej. Najgorszą z nich trzymał z dala od pozostałych. W jego gabinecie znajdowało się biurko, a każda z szuflad była zamknięta na klucz. Jedna z nich miała potrójny zamek. Wewnątrz leżało pudełko rzeźbione w magiczne symbole i runy. A w środku leżał Smoczy Piasek, na który nie ma lekarstwa. Pochodził z pustyni Grenh. Do Grenh można zbliżyć się tylko wtedy, gdy nie wieje wiatr. Albowiem wystarczy raz odetchnąć oparami, by zginąć. Ale nie natychmiast. Dopiero po paru dniach płuca rozżarzą się, skóra zacznie dymić, a całe ciało skurczy się niczym ciało mumii. Po czym człowiek padnie nieżywy z włosami w płomieniach.

"Flagg w ciemnościach, niewidziany przez nikogo, zaczął się śmiać. W klatce wiszącej na długich czarnych kajdankach obudziła się dwugłowa papuga.

– Śmierć! – wrzasnęła jedna z głów.

– Mord! – krzyknęła druga".

 Автор: Koontz Dean R


Only a handful of fictional characters are recognized by first name alone. Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas is one of those rare literary heroes who have come alive in readers' imaginations as he explores the greatest mysteries of this world and the next with his inimitable wit, heart, and quiet gallantry. Now Koontz follows Odd as he is irresistibly drawn onward to a destiny he cannot imagine and to undreamed of places where the perils he will face and the stakes for which he fights will eclipse all that he has known.

The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas's gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends-and enemies of implacable evil. With great gifts comes the responsibility to meet great challenges. But no mere human being was ever meant to face the darkness that now stalks the world-not even one as oddly special as Odd Thomas.

After grappling with the very essence of reality itself, after finding the veil that separates him from his soul mate, Stormy Llewellyn, tantalizingly thin yet impenetrable, Odd longed only to return to a life of quiet anonymity with his two otherworldly sidekicks-his dog Boo and a new companion, one of the few who might rival his old pal Elvis. But a true hero, however humble, must persevere. Haunted by dreams of an all-encompassing red tide, Odd is pulled inexorably to the sea, to a small California coastal town where nothing is as it seems. Now the forces arrayed against him have both official sanction and an infinitely more sinister authority…and in this dark night of the soul dawn will come only after the most shattering revelations of all.

Burnishing Dean Koontz's stature as a master of suspense and one of our most innovative and gifted storytellers, Odd Hours illuminates a legacy of mystery and hope that will shine on long after the final page.

"The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it's a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice, and Odd's otherworldly tips to Pico Mundo's sympathetic police chief, Wyatt Porter, can solve a crime. Occasionally they can prevent one. But this time it's different.

A mysterious man comes to town with a voracious appetite, a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world's worst killers, and a pack of hyena-like shades following him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd's deceased informants can tell him. His most ominous clue is a page ripped from a day-by-day calendar for August 15.

Today is August 14.

In less than twenty-four hours, Pico Mundo will awaken to a day of catastrophe. As evil coils under the searing desert sun, Odd travels through the shifting prisms of his world, struggling to avert a looming cataclysm with the aid of his soul mate and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock 'n' Roll. His account of two shattering days when past and present, fate and destiny converge is the stuff of our worst nightmares-and a testament by which to live: sanely if not safely, with courage, humor, and a full heart that even in the darkness must persevere.

The singular journey of Odd Thomas is approaching its unforgettable conclusion in Saint Odd. But before Odd’s destiny is revealed, this exclusive eBook short story looks back — way back — to where it all began for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, two souls who are destined to be together forever.


Amid the dizzying rides, tantalizing games of chance, and fanciful attractions of a state fair, two teenage sweethearts on the cusp of life and love’s pleasures find their way to a shadowy carnival tent brimming with curiosities. There, from the bizarre and enthralling Gypsy Mummy, a mechanized merchant of dreams and prognosticator of tomorrows, the young couple learns what fate promises for them. But fate, for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, is something altogether different: full of dark corners, sharp edges, and things no seer or soothsayer could ever anticipate.

And for Odd Thomas, a gallant fry cook from a sleepy California desert town, the future beckons — to listen to unquiet spirits, pursue unsettling mysteries, and learn shocking truths… for a purpose far greater than himself.

 Автор: Moody David

 Серия:


Sucede sin previo aviso, ataques súbitos, salvajes y letales. ¿Por qué la gente ataca a sus amigos, a su familia, incluso a desconocidos? ¿Se trata de un virus, de un ataque terrorista o es algo más primitivo? Un opresivo horror domina el país y no queda nadie en quien confiar, ni siquiera en uno mismo.

En la tradición de H. G. Wells, Anthony Burgess y Richard Matheson, Odio es la historia de un hombre y de su papel en un mundo desquiciado, un mundo infectado por el miedo, la violencia y el odio.

«Un viaje delirante, una fábula acerca del sentimiento predominante del siglo XXI. Odio te perseguirá mucho después de que hayas leído la última página.» – Guillermo del Toro, director de El laberinto del fauno

«Un lúcido acercamiento al estado del terror en el que vivimos y una fábula espeluznante acerca de sus últimas consecuencias. Ten cuidado con Odio, se adentrará en tu alma capítulo a capítulo hasta que encuentre la semilla de maldad que acecha en ella.» – J. A. Bayona, director de El orfanato

Wydaje się rzeczą niemożliwą, by wszyscy mieszkańcy spokojnego kalifornijskiego miasteczka zniknęli niemal w jednej sekundzie podczas wykonywania codziennych zajęć. A jednak kiedy pewnego wrześniowego wieczoru Jenny Paige i jej młodsza siostra przyjeżdżają do Snowfield, w tej dopiero co tętniącej życiem miejscowości nie ma nikogo. Właściwie należałoby powiedzieć: nie ma żywego człowieka, bo oprócz nielicznych ludzkich zwłok, na których trudno dopatrzyć się śladów gwałtownej śmierci, jest tu ktoś jeszcze – niewidzialny, mądry i okrutny, rozkoszujący się własną potęgą. Odwieczny wróg ludzkości, pragnący dla niej tylko śmierci i zatracenia…
