Обложка книги W milczeniu W milczeniu

 Автор: Spindler Erica


Dziennikarka Avery Chauvin jest wstrząśnięta wieścią, że jej ojciec popełnił samobójstwo. Jak ten oddany ludziom lekarz mógł targnąć się na życie?

Powrót w rodzinne strony, do Cypress Springs w Luizjanie, ma umożliwić Avery znalezienie odpowiedzi na dręczące ją pytanie. Tymczasem dochodzą ją szeptane plotki o dziwnych zdarzeniach, o zaginionych sąsiadach… W domu ojca znajduje pudełko z artykułami prasowymi sprzed piętnastu lat. Wszystkie opisują to samo wydarzenie: brutalne morderstwo popełnione na mieszkance miasteczka. Dlaczego ojciec gromadził te wycinki?

Nagle koszmarna przeszłość zderza się z teraźniejszością. W miasteczku zostaje bestialsko zamordowana kolejna kobieta, znika bez śladu młody naukowiec… Avery zaczyna podejrzewać, że jej ojciec mógł paść ofiarą morderstwa.

Im bliżej jest prawdy, tym bardziej sobie uświadamia, że w spokojnym miasteczku na Południu szerzy się potworne zło, chronione dotąd dzięki zmowie milczenia.

„Po trzech dniach deszczu w kwietniu 1954 roku rzeka wezbrała i wypełniła zbiornik do niespotykanego wcześniej poziomu, powodując, że wadliwie skonstruowane betonowe ściany osunęły się gigantyczną kaskadą.

Littleton Flats leżało poniżej poziomu morza bezpośrednio na drodze płynącej wody. Przestało istnieć. Liczbę ofiar ustalono na osiemset dziewięćdziesiąt dwie, poprawiając ją z ośmiuset dziewięćdziesięciu trzech po tym, jak w dole rzeki znaleziono żywą trzyletnią dziewczynkę.

Dowiedziałem się o tym, przeglądając mikrofilmy w „Littleton Journal” wkrótce po tym, jak Hinch mnie zatrudnił, ale zanim jeszcze dostałem coś konkretnego do roboty. To, że stare numery były wciąż na mikrofilmach, a nie na dyskach komputerowych, boleśnie mi uświadomiło, że nie gram już w pierwszej lidze.

Wiele osób w miasteczku znało kogoś, kto znał kogoś, kto zginął w Tamtej Katastrofie. Nic dziwnego, że był to dla nich bolesny temat, o czym przekonałem się później, próbując zainteresować Hincha artykułem retrospektywnym z okazji pięćdziesiątej rocznicy wydarzenia.

– Już tego próbowaliśmy – powiedział. – W każdym razie twój poprzednik próbował.

Mój poprzednik nazywał się John Wren. Wiedziałem o tym, ponieważ odziedziczyłem nie tylko jego biurko; wynajmował również przede mną ten sam dom. Najwyraźniej był kimś w rodzaju chomika: znalazłem w domu stare rachunki za telefon i kablówkę, zaadresowane do Johna Wrena koperty po przesyłkach z Amazon.com, poupychane w różnych miejscach kartki zabazgrane częściowo tylko czytelnymi notatkami diabli wiedzą na jaki temat. Natknąłem się też na coś, nad czym pracował: historię pechowego, zdezorientowanego weterana wojny wietnamskiej, który pewnego dnia zabłąkał się do Littleton i zasnął w miejskiej altanie. Tytuł brzmiał: Kim jest Eddie Bronson?

Wyglądało na to, że Wren pisał go z myślą o jakiejś lokalnej nagrodzie dziennikarskiej. Nie zdobył jej. Pierwszego dnia w pracy przywitała mnie lista zatytułowana Zasady Wrena przyklejona taśmą klejącą wewnątrz biurka. „Zasada numer jeden: dla pewności kopiuj notatki. Zasada numer dwa: na wszelki wypadek przepisuj nagrania z taśm!”

Norma uważała, że Wren, przeszczepiony do Littleton z Minnesoty, zapadł na ciężki przypadek pustynnej demencji – syndrom Santa Ana – albo atak małomiasteczkowych lęków, dziwne zaburzenie osobowości czasem dopadające ludzi, którzy utknęli na kalifornijskiej pustyni w samym środku nigdzie. Wyjechał potem, łowić pstrągi gdzieś w pobliżu granicy z Oregonem. Albo w przerębli na jeziorze Michigan. Albo szukać złota w Jukonie. Szczegóły były owiane tajemnicą…”

Bohater „W żywe oczy” Tom Valle był wschodzącą gwiazdą amerykańskich mediów. Jego kariera została zniszczona przez skandal, który wybuchł po ujawnieniu, że w swoich artykułach notorycznie rozmijał się z prawdą, fabrykował fakty. Wiele jego „demaskatorskich” tekstów okazało się plagiatami.

Swoje winy wobec dziennikarstwa Tom odkupuje w niewielkiej redakcji na kalifornijskiej pustyni. Tutaj natrafia na ślad prawdziwej afery. 50 lat wcześniej w katastrofie tamy zginęły 893 osoby. Lecz czy ta historia wydarzyła się naprawdę? Czy może rozgrywa się jedynie w głowie głównego bohatera?

Przez tę przewrotną intrygę niezwykle konsekwentnie przeprowadzi nas James Siegel, autor bestsellerowych „Wykolejonego” i „W matni”, na co dzień dyrektor kreatywny nowojorskiego oddziału agencji reklamowej BBDO.

Czy ta historia wydarzyła się naprawdę? Kto stoi za aferą? Dziennikarz? Czy może amerykański rząd? Te pytania towarzyszą nam od samego początku lektury nowej powieści Jamesa Siegla „W żywe oczy”, która właśnie ukazała się nakładem Wydawnictwa Otwartego.

Siegel opowiada historię dziennikarza na tropie skrywanej przez amerykański rząd afery atomowej. Gdyby nie fakt, że pierwowzorem bohatera stał się Jayson Blair – reporter, który zachwiał wiarygodnością New York Timesa była by to zapewne tylko kolejna dziennikarska powieść sensacyjna… Tymczasem lektura „W żywe oczy” sprawia, że uważneiej słuchamy tego, co mówią nam politycy i dziennikarze.

 Серия: , Atticus Kodiak


In this explosive new thriller, Greg Rucka, the acclaimed author of Shooting at Midnight and Patriot Acts, sets bodyguard-turned-international-fugitive Atticus Kodiak on a one-man crusade where being willing to die for your ideals isn't enough. You have to be willing to do much worse…

I will take your place in times of danger.

As an ex-bodyguard, Atticus Kodiak knew the sentiment well. He'd once based his career on it. Now it could cost him more than just his livelihood – more than even his life. For as he wakes to the sound of gunfire, the nightmare is about to begin again.

Atticus knew very well that people came to a place like Kobuleti to hide. After all, that's why he and Alena Cizkova had come to the secluded Georgian town in the former U.S.S.R. But Atticus never asked his friend and neighbor Bakhar Lagidze why he was in Kobuleti or what he might be hiding from. Now it's too late. Bakhar and his family have been brutally murdered, and the thuggish local police chief has declared it a murder-suicide. Everyone – even Alena – seems satisfied to leave it at that.

Except for Atticus.

He knows what the police won't acknowledge: that one person survived the bloodbath in the Lagidze household – their fourteen-year-old daughter. And the nightmare she's about to experience will make her wish she'd died with the rest.

To rescue her Atticus must enter a web that takes him from Russia to Istanbul, that stretches from Dubai to Las Vegas. But what troubles Atticus the most is that Alena – once one of the world's most dangerous assassins and a woman who fears nothing – is clearly terrified of what he's uncovered. And as Atticus gets closer to learning why, the closer he gets to destroying the life they have made, and each other.

Обложка книги War with Russia War with Russia

 Автор: Shirreff Richard


The rapid rise in Russia’s power over the course of the last ten years has been matched by a stunning lack of international diplomacy on the part of its president, Vladimir Putin. One consequence of this, when combined with Europe’s rapidly shifting geopolitics, is that the West is on a possible path toward nuclear war. Former deputy commander of NATO General Sir Richard Shirreff speaks out about this very real peril in this call to arms, a novel that is a barely disguised version of the truth. In chilling prose, it warns allied powers and the world at large that we risk catastrophic nuclear conflict if we fail to contain Russia’s increasingly hostile actions.

In a detailed plotline that draws upon Shirreff’s years of experience in tactical military strategy, Shirreff lays out the most probable course of action Russia will take to expand its influence, predicting that it will begin with an invasion of the Baltic states. And with GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump recently declaring that he might not come to the aid of these NATO member nations were he to become president, the threat of an all-consuming global conflict is clearer than ever.

This critical, chilling fictional look at our current geopolitical landscape, written by a top NATO commander, is both timely and necessary—a must—read for any fan of realistic military thrillers as well as all concerned citizens.

From Publishers Weekly

When can a psychologist go to the police about a client without violating the doctor/patient contract? Boulder psychologist Alan Gregory, veteran of nine previous White suspense novels, wrestles with this dilemma in White's latest top-flight thriller. Neurotic Naomi Bigg seeks help when she suspects her high school son, Paul, plans to avenge his sister's rape and his father's murder conviction for killing the rapist, who was let off on a technicality. Paul's best friend, Ramp, an explosives fanatic, lost his mother to a paroled rapist/murderer and has his own list of targets. Alan's erratic sessions with Naomi begin to unnerve him when he picks up hints of a connection to the recent brutal murder of Boulder 's DA, his wife Lauren's boss. Even worse, he realizes that Lauren, suffering from MS and just ending maternity leave, assisted in the bungled prosecution of Paul's sister's rapist. And to further complicate things, the prime suspect in the DA murder case is Boulder police detective Lucy Tanner, partner of Alan's best friend, Sam Purdy. When a car bomb kills a judge's wife in Denver, Alan is torn with indecision, but goes to Sam after explosives are found in the dead DA's house. When a bomb goes off at Alan's office and Lucy is kidnapped, Alan and Sam team up and track Ramp on his deadly bomb spree. White (Private Practices) deliciously taunts the reader with his trademark twists, smoothly weaving plots together and sprinkling red herrings among the solid clues. Could Columbine have been prevented if the shooters' parents had gone to the police? How many warning signs are needed before action should be taken? These questions have led to the "no tolerance" policies in many schools and underlie this tensely satisfying outing. National ad/promo.

 Серия: Patrick McLanahan


The world is falling apart, and there are plenty of people willing to take advantage. One of them is Pavel Kazakov, a Russian oilman with close ties to organized crime, and an audacious idea: Build a huge pipeline through the Balkans, get the Russian army to back him, and everybody gets rich. Sure, NATO will object, but the new president’s emphatic decision that American will no longer be the world’s policeman guarantees no effective opposition. Russia will dominate Europe. Kazakov will dominate the oil supply. He hasn’t reckoned with Patrick McLanahan, however. The young Air Force general leads a combat mission deep into Russia to rescue a spy on the ground, but when things start to spin out of control, McLanahan’s intuition is to push it even further, to create whatever havoc he can. That puts him directly in opposition to the president himself, and pretty soon McLanahan and his team find themselves faced with a dire choice. Which is the greater threat: the empire in front of them — or the president behind? Whichever way they choose, life as they know it will never be the same.

 Автор: Koontz Dean R


Prolific Koontz's recent horror efforts (Strangers, Phantoms, Whispers) smothered readers under ungainly layers of fatty subplots and scleroid exposition. In this 49th novel, he strips away much of the excess to deliver his leanest book since The Vision (1977), and his best ever, an imaginative and unusual blend of suspense and sentiment as man, woman, and dog flee from horrors both inhuman and inhumane. The dog, a golden retriever, is the novel's centerpiece. World-weary Travis Cornell stumbles upon him snarling at something deep in a California woods. Showing uncanny wit, the dog leads Travis out of the forest, responding to every command with near-human intelligence. Adopting the dog, Travis names him "Einstein." Meanwhile, two villains wreak havoc in the L.A. suburbs, Koontz's excuse to indulge in his customary gory excesses: some thing is decapitating random loners, while, in an unnecessary subplot, a KGB-hired assassin kills scientists connected with a gene-splicing lab. Days later, Einstein saves a lonely woman, Nora, from rape. As she and Travis romance, they explore the dog's powers, even teaching him to read and write. With the use of Scrabble tiles, Einstein explains that he, as well as a murderous baboonish creature so vile as to be called "The Other," are results of an Army genetic experiment. Einstein escaped; The Other, jealous of his charm, broke out to kill him – and all who stand in its way. Grateful to Einstein the dog for reviving their tired lives, Travis and Nora hide out with him in S.F., where, amidst domestic bliss highlighted by a pregnancy and the dog's obsession with Mickey Mouse videos, they await the coming of The Other. But the assassin, hoping to steal Einstein, shows up first; Travis guns him down. When The Other arrives, razor teeth flashing, it meets the same fate. At the close: a happy ending foretelling a race of super-dogs to grace the earth. More a fable about love and trust than an outright chiller, this work, with its echoes of Frankenstein and The Island of Dr. Moreau, still peppers enough tension and mayhem throughout to satisfy horror fans. And the touching, if often hokey, interplay between dog and human could attract new, non-genre readers. A break-through for Koontz.

From International Thriller Writers comes WATCHLIST: two powerful novellas featuring the same thrilling cast of characters in one major suspenseful package. THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT and THE COPPER BRACELET are collaborations of some of the world’s greatest thriller writers, including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plots in motion. The other authors each wrote a chapter and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing both novellas to their startling conclusions.

In the first novella, THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to America to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins. But the greatest threat will come from a shadowy figure from his past: the man known only as Faust.

Harold Middleton returns in THE COPPER BRACELET -- the explosive sequel to THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT -- as he’s drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war. Careening from Nice to London and Moscow to Kashmir to prevent nuclear disaster, Middleton is unaware that his prey has changed and that the act of terror is far more diabolical than he knows. Will he discover the identity of the Scorpion in time to halt an event that will pit the United States, China, and Russia against each other at the brink of World War III?
