Аннотация

Paige Vallis claimed that she gave in to Tripping's sexual demands because he had threatened to harm his son if she didn't. Alexandra Cooper, prosecuting the ex-CIA man, knew she had her work cut out to convince the jury, but before Paige could complete her testimony on the stand she is found dead – strangled in her own apartment building, just hours after she'd confessed to Alex that she had had a relationship with another ex-CIA operative. While the accusation of rape against Tripping is dropped, he has other charges to face, not least abusing his own child. As Tripping's defence team go into overdrive to keep their client out of jail, Alex, Chapman and Mercer set out to discover who so conveniently killed the woman who could have put him behind bars. As they peel back the layers of Paige's life, they discover a decades-old viper's nest of robbery and double-dealing and discover that truth of the adage of money being at the root of all evil – however old and 'respectable' it might be.

Аннотация

From Publishers Weekly The 11th adventure of Santa Teresa, Calif., PI Kinsey Milhone has a dark tone-due in great part to Kinsey's working this case mostly at night. Kinsey agrees to look into the 10-month-old death of Lorna Kepler, a young woman whose decomposed body was discovered in her cabin so long after death that it was impossible to determine the cause. Kinsey's client, Lorna's mother, who works the night shift in a 24-hour diner, suspects murder. So does Kinsey, especially after investigating Lorna's effects and her considerable assets, some unaccounted-for. An anonymously delivered pornographic tape adds to the emerging portrait of the dead woman as an intriguingly self-sufficient, ambitious woman of the evening. In nighttime forays, Kinsey talks to an all-night deejay whom Lorna often visited at his studio; she meets-and befriends-a prostitute who occasionally teamed up with Lorna to party with clients. She also investigates the victim's day job as a part-time receptionist for the water district, where a high-stakes development project is currently raising tempers. A host of suspects includes a porn filmmaker in San Francisco, members of Lorna's family, her landlord, the water district employees and even a smooth-dressing cop, whom Kinsey talks to at night. But lack of sleep dulls Kinsey's perceptions and it takes two more deaths and the surprise appearance of a deus ex limousine to lead her to a solution. Even sleep-deprived, Kinsey shows spunk and appeal, but she is not at her sharpest here. 600,000 first printing; author tour.

Аннотация

In a brilliant illumination of the Renaissance mind, acclaimed Irish novelist John Banville re-creates the life of Johannes Kepler and his incredible drive to chart the orbits of the planets and the geometry of the universe. Wars, witchcraft, and disease rage throughout Europe. For this court mathematician, vexed by domestic strife, appalled by the religious upheavals that have driven him from exile to exile, and vulnerable to the whims of his eccentric patrons, astronomy is a quest for some form of divine order. For all the mathematical precision of his exploration, though, it is a seemingly elusive quest until he makes one glorious and profound discovery. Johannes Kepler, born in 1571 in south Germany, was one of the world's greatest mathematicians and astronomers. The author of this book uses this history as a background to his novel, writing a work of historical fiction that is rooted in poverty, squalor and the tyrannical power of emperors.

The Killer Angels (1974) is a historical novel by Michael Shaara that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1975. The book tells the story of four days of the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War: June 29, 1863, as the troops of both the Union and the Confederacy move into battle around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and July 1, July 2, and July 3, when the battle was fought. A film adaption of the novel, titled Gettysburg, was released in 1993. Reading about the past is rarely so much fun as on these pages.

Аннотация

The Barnes Noble Review This novel featuring Asian-American detective April Woo is a powerful blend of police procedural and thriller. When the guest of honor, Lieutenant Alfredo Bernardino, leaves before his retirement party's over, he neglects to take the gifts he's been given in honor of his 38 years with the New York City Police Department. His famous protégé, April Woo, follows him with his property, planning to say a last goodbye, but it's already too late. She comes across her mentor's still-warm body in the fog, his neck broken by an unknown assailant. April gives chase and comes close to sharing Bernardino's fate at the hands of a killer whose skills at unarmed combat challenge her own. Bernardino had plenty of friends and more than a few enemies, and the investigation into his murder is filled with complications involving high-ranking detectives, an internal affairs investigation, input from the dead detective's children (a son who works in the D.A.'s office and an FBI agent daughter), plus a hunt for millions of dollars missing from Bernardino's recent lottery winnings – not to mention the search for the source of a series of cryptic threatening phone calls to Bernardino and the killer's other victims. Because of her injuries – and the department's policy against cops who are crime victims investigating their own cases – April's involvement has to be unofficial. At times she must even hide it from her fiancé, Lieutenant Mike Sanchez of the NYPD Homicide Task Force. But still she hunts relentlessly for the cop-killer who is bold enough to seek out new victims amid the ever-expanding manhunt. Sue Stone

Аннотация

Kontynuacja " Wszystkiego czerwonego ". Straszny ryk wyrwał mnie ze snu późną nocą. Na moment zastygłam w obawie, że dom się wali, ale zaraz przypomniałam sobie o rezerwuarze. Uspokojona, doczekałam chwili zamilknięcia urządzenia i zasnęłam na nowo. – Proponuję, żeby w nocy powstrzymywać się od spuszczania wody – rzekłam o poranku. Co wy na to? Wśród nocnej ciszy grzmi dubeltowo. – A kto spuszczał? – zainteresowała się Alicja. – Nie wiem. Ty albo Beata. – Przysięgam, że ja nie- zarzekła się Beata. Spałam jak kamień, a poza tym czuję się intruzem i z całej siły staram się być cicha, bezwonna i nieszkodliwa. – Nie czuj się – poradziła jej Alicja. Wyróżniałabyś się za mocno. Ja też nie, to kto? Joanna, może ty sama? – Nie sądzę. Trudno spuszczać wodę w wychodku, zarazem leżąc w łóżku. – A jesteś pewna, że poleciała? – Mam pokój najbliżej, tuż obok, niemożliwe było nie słyszeć. Żadna z was nie słyszała? – Ja nie – odparła Beata. – Coś mnie chyba obudziło, ale nie wiem co – wyznała Alicja. Możliwe, że ryk, ale widocznie ucichło, zanim się zdążyłam zastanowić.(z fragmentu książki)

Аннотация

Na "Księżyc w nowiu", dalszy ciąg bestsellerowego "Zmierzchu", czekały z niecierpliwością tysiące czytelników z kilkunastu krajów świata. Od wielu miesięcy obie powieści znajdują się w czołówce listy bestsellerów "New York Timesa", a nakład trzeciej z cyklu osiągnął w USA milion egzemplarzy. Podobnie jak pierwsza powieść o nastoletniej Isabelli Swan, "Księżyc w nowiu" jest połączeniem romansu z trzymającym napięcie horrorem, w którym rozterki zakochanej dziewczyny przeplatają się z opisami mrożących krew w żyłach niesamowitych wydarzeń. Edward Cullen to wciąż dla Belli najważniejsza osoba pod słońcem. Są parą i jest im razem cudownie. Gdyby tylko chłopak nie był wampirem! Niestety, ten fakt wszystko komplikuje, także z pozoru niewinną zażyłość dziewczyny z przyjacielem z dzieciństwa, Jacobem. Wiosną Edward musiał bronić Belli przed swoim krwiożerczym pobratymcem, jesienią zakochani uświadamiają sobie, że był to dopiero początek ich kłopotów.
