From the author of The Man from Berlin, shortlisted for the CWA Endeavour Historical Dagger German intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt has just been reassigned to the Feldjaegerkorps - a new branch of the military police with far-reaching powers. His position separates him from the friends and allies he has made in the last two years, including a circle of fellow dissenting Germans who formed a rough resistance cell against the Nazis. And he needs them now more than ever. While retreating through Yugoslavia with the rest of the army, Reinhardt witnesses a massacre of civilians by the dreaded Ustaše - only to discover there is more to the incident than anyone believes. When five mutilated bodies turn up, Reinhardt knows the stakes are growing more important - and more dangerous. As his investigation begins to draw the attention of those in power, Reinhardt’s friends and associates are made to suffer. But as he desperately tries to uncover the truth, his own past with the Ustaše threatens his efforts. Because when it comes to death and betrayal, some people have long memories. And they remember Reinhardt all too well. 'Reinhardt is a terrific creation' - Times 'What makes the book terrific is the humanity and hope that shine through even the darkest of scenes' - Herald 'If you like Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther books, you will love The Ashes of Berlin. Luke McCallin has skilfully crafted an atmospheric and gripping tale set amid the ruins of a war ravaged city that feels wholly authentic. Historical fiction at its best' – Howard Linskey, author of Behind Dead Eyes Look out for other books in the Gregor Reinhardt series: The Man from Berlin and The Ashes of Berlin

135.000 ejemplares vendidos en Alemania. El tercer caso del detective Gereon Rath, después de Sombras sobre Berlín y Muerte en Berlín. Berlín 1931: La crisis económica se agudiza, los conflictos entre las SA y el Frente Rojo, y entre las bandas del hampa, se vuelven más violentos. Gereon Rath recibe la orden de vigilar a un gángster estadounidense: Abraham Abe Goldstein. El gángster parece haberse resignado a permanecer bajo el control policial, pero ya hace tiempo que se mueve libremente por la ciudad. Mientras tanto, Rath se ve obligado a realizar una investigación privada para Johann Marlow, el boss de los bajos fondos de Berlín. Hugo El Rojo, socio de Marlow, ha desaparecido. Y además está Charly Ritter, la joven con quien Gereon Rath mantiene una complicada relación... Frente al panorama de una ciudad desgarrada y el ascenso imparable del nazismo, Volker Kutscher logra dibujar con maestría unos personajes de sorprendente actualidad, al tiempo que desarrolla una fascinante trama que lleva al lector de emoción en emoción. Las novelas protagonizadas por Gereon Rath se convertirán en una serie de televisión dirigida por Tom Tykwer, cuya filmografía incluye Cloud Atlas y The International, estrenadas en España como El atlas de las nubes y Dinero en la sombra respectivamente. Reseñas: «Pese a la extensión de la novela, la atención no decae. Kutscher ilustra hábilmente el complicado entramado de corrupción, criminalidad y ascenso del nacionalsocialismo.» Rhein-Neckar Zeitung «Volker Kutscher pinta con maestría el panorama de la que fuera la ciudad más ambigua de Europa y construye una emocionante trama con el nazismo como telón de fondo.» Schweizer Illustrierte «Las tramas de Kuscher se construyen con rigor y precisión: historias espeluznantes con el colorido de una época.» WDR, Westart «Kutscher ha realizado a la perfección su proyecto de describir la caída de la República de Weimar por medio de la novela policíaca.» Allgemeine Zeitung «Otra pintura de costumbres convincente de una metrópolis entre el delirio y el desasosiego. Kutscher es un narrador brillante.» Weser Kurier

J. J. Donovan is sitting on the beach, his back against a palm tree, watching the sun rise over the Caribbean. He wears the self-satisfied expression of a man who spent half the night reveling with his ex-wife. Donovan and his ex, Kate Byrne, have been enjoying a romantic vacation in the U.S. Virgin Islands. As he sips hot tea and watches the colorful spinnakers on sailboats dancing out beyond the barrier reef, he has no way of knowing that his close friend and partner, the inimitable Dr. Boris Koulomzin, has been seriously injured. Before the sun sets again in paradise, Donovan and Kate will be on a plane headed home. On returning to New York City, they find Dr. Koulomzin bruised and bandaged, with several hundred crusty stitches crossing his face and jawline. The Professor is also scared. The mistaken delivery of a plain brown envelope to his seats at Yankee Stadium has managed to change his life forever. A demented man named Johnny St. John is desperate for the return of that envelope. And St. John, who believes he is the right hand of God, is prepared to mete out his own deadly form of justice. The envelope that Mr. St. John will stop at nothing to possess contains photographs and confidential information about three innocent-looking people--a young actor, a sculptress, and a businessman. These three individuals seem to have nothing in common. Except for the fact that they are all very sick. In this fast-paced sequel to Broken Machines, Donovan finds himself racing against time to save these helpless, innocent people, while trying to expose the man behind a scheme to murder them for their viatical, or death, benefits. Along the way, he earns the wrath of Johnny St. John. A man with eyes so black they don't reflect light, St. John ultimately threatens to destroy everything J.J. Donovan holds dear.

A perplexing case of murder and conspiracy in the pagan wilds of Northern Italy In 664 A.D., just after the events detailed in Shroud for the Archbishop, Fidelma of Cashel takes a unexpected detour on her trip home from Rome. While in the port at Genua (modern day Genoa), Fidelma—sister of one Ireland's kings and an advocate in her country's law courts—receives word that one of her old teachers, Brother Ruadan, is reaching the end of his days. Determined to see her old mentor one last time, Fidelma takes the treacherous journey to a remote abbey in the countryside—a place where the old pagan religion still has a hold and where even the Christians are often in bloody conflict with each other. But after she hears her dying teacher's last words, Fidelma's most dangerous adventure has just begun. With one murder after the next and a vicious war in the offing, it is up to Fidelma, alone and on her own, to unravel an extraordinary conspiracy before it is too late.

In the classic mystery by Queen of Mystery Agatha Christie, an elderly priest is murdered, quite possibly doomed by a woman’s deathbed confession and by the secrets kept safely locked behind closed doors of a mysterious local pub. When an elderly priest is murdered, the killer searches the victim so roughly that his already ragged cassock is torn in the process. What was the killer looking for? And what had a dying woman confided to the priest on her deathbed only hours earlier? Mark Easterbrook and his sidekick Ginger Corrigan are determined to find out. Maybe the three women who run The Pale Horse public house, and who are rumored to practice the “Dark Arts,” can provide some answers?

Honored with the 1990 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal for a lifetime of outstanding achievement, Fay Jones is an Arkansas original. In receiving the medal from Prince Charles of Great Britain, Jones was hailed as a “powerful and special genius who embodies nearly all the qualities we admire in an architect” and as an artist who used his vision to craft “mysterious and magical places” not only in Arkansas but all over the world. This book accompanied a special museum exhibit of Jones’s life and work at the Old State House in Little Rock. It traces Jones’s development from his early years as a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff, to the culmination of his ability in such arresting structures as Pinecote Pavilion in Picayune, Mississippi; Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas; and Chapman University Chapel in Orange, California. Through the black-and-white photographs of the homes, chapels, and other buildings that Jones has created and the accompanying captions and interviews of the architect, the reader is allowed a view into this man’s remarkable talent. Designing structures that fuse architecture and landscape, the organic and the man-made, Jones has created special places which touch their viewers with the power and subtlety of poetry. Herein we learn why. From the Foreword by Robert Adams Ivy Jr.: “Fay Jones’s architecture begins in order and ends in mystery. . . . His role can perhaps best be understood as mediator, a human consciousness that has arisen from the Arkansas soil and scoured the cosmos, then spoken through the voices of stone and wood, steel and glass. Art, philosophy, craft, and human aspiration coalesce in his masterworks, transformed from acts of will into harmonies: Jones lets space sing.”

No creo en el destino. No creo en los accidentes. Ni puedo ni quiero aceptar la teoría de que largas secuencias de accidentes no relacionados determinan los acontecimientos mundiales. Es inconcebible que los que tienen el poder y la riqueza no puedan unirse con un lazo común, un interés común y un plan a largo plazo para decidir y dirigir el futuro del mundo. Para aquellos con recursos, hacer lo contrario sería totalmente irresponsable. Sé que yo sería el primero en organizar una conspiración para controlar el resultado del futuro, si fuera una persona y una conspiración que aún no existiera. Lo haría intentando asegurar la supervivencia de los principios en los que creo, la supervivencia de mi familia, mi propia supervivencia, y la supervivencia de la raza humana, y no por ninguna otra razón. Creo, pues, que se está jugando una gran partida de ajedrez a unos niveles que apenas podemos imaginar, y nosotros somos los peones. Los peones sólo son valiosos en determinadas circunstancias y a menudo se sacrifican para obtener una ventaja. Cualquiera que haya estudiado estrategia militar está familiarizado con el concepto del sacrificio. Los que hayan estudiado seriamente la historia probablemente habrán descubierto la verdadera razón por la que hacemos la guerra de forma regular. Antes de leer este libro, os aconsejo que juguéis al menos dos partidas enteras de ajedrez. Debéis aprender las normas con las que ELLOS juegan. Debéis daros cuenta de manera objetiva que algunas piezas son más valiosas que otras, y que el rey es la más valiosa de todas. No podréis captar la realidad si os pillan con la fantasía de que "esto no es justo." Debéis llegar a saber que lo único que cuenta es el resultado final del juego. Os mintieron cuando os dijeron que "no importa si ganáis o perdéis, sino como jugáis." En el mundo de la élite ganar lo es todo. De hecho, no hay nada más. La élite en el poder intenta ganar. Mi investigación ha demostrado, en este punto, que el futuro que nos han dibujado casi puede ser imposible cambiarlo. No estoy de acuerdo con los medios que unos cuantos poderosos han elegido para acabar con nosotros. No estoy en absoluto de acuerdo en que el exterminio sea nuestro final. Pero si no podemos hacer despertar a la gente de su sueño, sólo una guerra civil detendrá el resultado previsto. No baso esta afirmación en el derrotismo, sino en la apatía de la mayoría del pueblo estadounidense. Hace veinticinco años hubiera creído lo contrario - pero veinticinco años atrás yo también estaba profundamente dormido. Se nos han enseñado mentiras. La realidad no es en absoluto lo que percibimos.

In the small, friendly Oregon town of Lone Oak, seemingly untouched by time and the modern world, a fundamentalist minister thinks the town's secular activities have summoned the pale horse of the apocalypse. Believing he's been called to become the town's savior, Reverend David Phillips strikes out at the scantily clad girls at track meets, the blasphemous talk among the town's eccentric cronies in the barber shop and gas station, and the growing population of Latinos, among whom he sees a teenage boy Jesus Martinez as the Antichrist. The minister, empowered by his religious beliefs, is a terrifying force, but the townspeople are not powerless. Led by the town matriarch, Rachel Douglas, flinty granddaughter of the town's founder, and inspired by Cat Stanford, a gifted athlete whose running prowess unites them, the town resists the minister and his followers. Will the town's fundamental goodwill and humanity be enough to withstand the minister's rigid and destructive fundamentalist beliefs? The pale horse, once called forth, cannot easily be recalled.
