Bones Are Forever
Author: Kathy Reichs
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX televison hit Bones, is at her brilliant best in a riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennanâ€”a story of infanticide, murder, and corruption, set in the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining. A woman calling herself Amy Roberts checks into a Montreal hospital complaining of uncontrolled bleeding. Doctors see evidence of a recent birth, but before they can act, Roberts disappears. Dispatched to the address she gave at the hospital, police discover bloody towels outside in a Dumpster. Fearing the worst, they call Temperance Brennan to investigate. In a run-down apartment Tempe makes a ghastly discovery: the decomposing bodies of three infants. According to the landlord, a woman named Alma Rogers lives there. Then a man shows up looking for Alva Rodriguez. Are Amy Roberts, Alma Rogers, and Alva Rodriguez the same person? Did she kill her own babies? And where is she now? Heading up the investigation is Tempeâ€™s old flame, homicide detective Andrew Ryan. His counterpart from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is sergeant Ollie Hasty, who happens to have a little history with Tempe himself, which she regrets. This unlikely trio follows the womanâ€™s trail, first to Edmonton and then to Yellowknife, a remote diamond-mining city deep in the Northwest Territories. What they find in Yellowknife is more sinister than they ever could have imagined. Crackling with sexual tension, whip-smart dialogue, and the startling plot twists Reichs delivers so well, Bones Are Forever is the fifteenth thrilling novel in Reichsâ€™s â€ścleverly plotted and expertly maintained seriesâ€ť (The New York Times Book Review). With the FOX series Bones in its eighth season and her popularity at its broadest ever, Kathy Reichs has reached new heights in suspenseful storytelling.
Voice of the Violin
Author: Andrea Camilleri
â€śYou either love Andrea Camilleri or you havenâ€™t read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen. Aglow with local color, packed with flint-dry wit, as fresh and clean as Mediterranean seafood â€” altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano.â€ť A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Inspector Montalbano, praised as â€śa delightful creationâ€ť (USA Today), has been compared to the legendary detectives of Georges Simenon, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbanoâ€™s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victimâ€™s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate... But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

Quando solleviamo gli occhi al cielo di notte, ci raggiunge in gran fretta l'impressione che le stelle siano tutte uguali. Certo alcune piĂą grandi e luminose, e altre piĂą piccole e fioche, ma le contempliamo sempre come semplici puntini luminosi, tutti simili fra loro. Ma se osserviamo piĂą attentamente noteremo delle differenze, e delle sfumature uniche per ciascuna stella; e non parlo dei dettagli tecnici e astrofisici, certo anche quelli sono spesso differenti fra loro; parlo invece di influssi intimi, sfuggenti e intangibili, diversi ogni volta che volgiamo lo sguardo a una speciale stella, ciascuna stella davvero fa risuonare dentro di noi dei sogni meravigliosi, nessuno uguale all'altro. Poi i nostri occhi vengono catturati dalla luna, la sua lucerna fulgente che sopraffĂ i nostri puntini luminosi, e abbiamo il dolce sospetto che lei sappia tutto, di quei segreti sogni, sussurrati dalle stelle. Se potessimo raggiungere una di loro, una stella a cui siamo affezionati vivremo in prima persona quei sogni, talvolta maturi, ma cosĂ¬ tante volte sbocciati nel fertile terriccio dell'infanzia, affollato di fiori luccicanti. Verrebbero illuminati, come la nostra vita viene illuminata dal sole.
