Livorno. L’omicidio di una vecchia prostituta nei pressi del Cisternino risveglia nel commissario Botteghi ricordi sepolti dell’infanzia, tanto da divenire quasi una questione personale. Frustrato per gli scarsi risultati, non molla l’indagine neppure quando il Questore gli impone un caso più risonante. Un imprenditore edile, autore di importanti restauri storici della città, è stato trovato morto nel parco di Villa Corridi. Tra regolamenti di conti, inseguimenti nei sotterranei della città, un misterioso killer e un vecchio traffico di droga, le due indagini finiranno per intrecciarsi tra loro in un sottile gioco di parti, così inaspettato da mettere a dura prova le capacità investigative di Botteghi. Riuscirà il commissario a scoprire l’incredibile verità nascosta all’ombra dell’antico acquedotto Leopoldino? Un malinconico viaggio attraverso storie di vita cui non è concessa redenzione, cullato dalla melodia di una famosa canzone degli anni ’60.

Nell'era della dittatura del feroce Xalatron l’ultima speranza dei ribelli è l’avvento di un leggendario guerriero, profetizzato dalle pergamene ritrovate sul sacro monte Ankor. Per annientarne questo credo, il tiranno invia la figliastra Maril, un’orfana che ha cresciuto nel sangue per farne un invincibile combattente senz’anima, conosciuto come la morte dagli occhi di ghiaccio. Dovrà raggiungere in incognito lo sperduto monastero di Tinien, fonte del culto, per scoprirne i segreti e distruggerlo. Nel viaggio però la ragazza incontrerà qualcuno capace di incrinare la gelida crudeltà che l’avvolge, fino a far riaffiorare il suo vero io; ma è davvero il compiersi della misteriosa profezia o un oscuro piano ordito dalla nera mano dello spietato patrigno?

Un’afosa sera d’estate: un’esplosione sconvolge Asti. L’incendio conseguente distrugge la APES azienda specializzata nello stoccaggio di rifiuti; nella tragedia perdono la vita due dipendenti. Contemporaneamente in un incidente avvenuto poco distante dal luogo del disastro,muore un motociclista mentre l’autista di un SUV finisce in coma. Entrambe le vittime si scoprono essere titolari della stessa azienda distrutta dall’incendio. La medesima sera, l’investigatore privato Giorgio Martinengo prende servizio come soccorritore della Croce Rossa e il suo migliore amico, il chimico Paolo Marchese, membro dell’ARPA Piemonte, deve intervenire per monitorare il potenziale pericolo d’inquinamento ambientale derivato dall’incendio,perché la funerea e irreale colonna di fumo nero come la pece che ascende al cielo della piccola città piemontese non sembra solo carta che brucia. Inizia così una lunga notte insonne, durante la quale Giorgio Martinengo si ritroverà a ricomporre un mosaico di fatti e persone in una sarabanda di morte che coinvolgerà i personaggi più inaspettati. Un vortice di faccendieri, corrotti ed ecomafie nel quale Martinengo, vittima di una insopprimibile brama di sapere, sarà coinvolto nonostante il suo inedito ruolo.

This early work by Richard Austin Freeman was originally published in 1923 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'The Cat's Eye' is one of Freeman's novels of crime and mystery. The first story featuring his well-known protagonist Dr. Thorndyke – a medico-legal forensic investigator – was published in 1907, and although Freeman's early works were seen as simple homages to his contemporary, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he quickly developed his own style: The 'inverted detective story', in which the identity of the criminal is shown from the beginning, and the story then describes the detective's attempt to solve the mystery.

Summoned from Vienna to Frankfurt to testify at the Auschwitz trials, Heiner meets Lena, who is working at the court as a translator. During the trial, he describes his experiences of being deported to Auschwitz as a young man. Afterward, the two begin a cautious love affair, but both are unsure whether their feelings will be strong enough to persevere in the shadow of his earlier ordeals. Heiner knows that if they are to stay together, Lena will have to accept the memories of Auschwitz that mark him and build a new life amid the debris of his past. In this moving novel, Monika Held draws on first-hand reports by Auschwitz survivors to paint an emotive picture of life and love governed by trauma. Throughout, Heiner’s suffering is omnipresent, and Lena’s struggle to hold her own in a relationship dominated by his past is deeply moving. His stories are horrific and disturbing, but they are a part of his identity; he cannot survive without them. And slowly, Lena learns to cherish her own past despite its apparent insignificance. With its sensitive treatment of two people struggling to confront the Holocaust’s atrocities from very different vantage points, This Place Holds No Fear is a powerful novel of finding love after experiencing unimaginable loss.

It is just before Christmas and the marshal wants to go South to spend the holiday with his wife and family, but first he must recover from the flu (which has left the Florentine caribinieri short-handed) and also solve a murder. A seemingly respectable retired Englishman, living in a flat on the Via Maggio near the Santa Trinita bridge, was shot in the back during the night. He was well-connected and Scotland Yard has despatched two officers to "assist" the Italians in solving the crime. But it is the marshal, a quiet observer, not an intellectual, who manages to figure out what happened, and why.
