Description :  Karin Slaughter, autora aclamada internacionalmente, regresa con un <i>thriller</i> psicológico sofisticado y escalofriante en el que, mezclando turbios secretos, fría venganza y una inesperada posibilidad de absolución, nos presenta a dos hermanas que, tras haber perdido el contacto, han de unir fuerzas para desvelar la verdad acerca de las espantosas tragedias que, separadas por veinte años, destrozaron sus vidas.<br /><br />Hermanas. Desconocidas. Supervivientes.<br /><br />Han pasado más de dos décadas desde que Julia, la hermana mayor de Claire y Lydia, desapareció sin dejar rastro a los 19 años. Algún tiempo después, ellas dejaron de hablarse y tomaron caminos opuestos. Claire se había convertido en la decorativa y ociosa esposa de un millonario de Atlanta. Lydia, madre soltera, salía con un expresidiario y se esforzaba por llegar a fin de mes. Ninguna de las dos, sin embargo, se había recuperado del horror y la tristeza de su tragedia compartida: una herida atroz que se reabrió cruelmente al morir asesinado el marido de Claire.<br /><br />La desaparición de una joven y el asesinato de un hombre de mediana edad, separados casi por un cuarto de siglo. ¿Qué relación podía haber entre ambos hechos? Tras alcanzar una tregua precaria, las hermanas supervivientes miraron al pasado en busca de la verdad y comenzaron a desenterrar los secretos que destruyeron a su familia y a descubrir una posibilidad de redención y venganza allí donde menos lo esperaban.<br /><br /><i>Flores cortadas </i>es un <i>thriller </i>magistral de una de las mejores escritoras de suspense del panorama literario actual.<br /><br />La versión de papel contiene la precuela <i>Arrancada</i>, el ebook de ésta lo encontrarás en nuestra web.<br /><br />_____________<br />Hay tres cualidades de Karin Slaughter que me encantan: sus personajes, la manera de detallar la historia y la capacidad de crear ambientes óptimos y originales. <i>Flores Cortadas</i> es un <i>thriller</i> muy intenso. Lleno de acción, de valentía y con muchos giros. Diseñados para engatusar a los lectores y sumergirles en la lectura completamente. Es potente, conmovedora: brillante y desgarradora a la vez. La vívida prosa de Slaughter mantendrá a la mayoría de lectores despiertos y ansiosos.<br /><br /><b><i>Papel de tinta</i></b><br /><br />Concebida para el ocio y disfrute del lector aficionado a los géneros de intriga, pero bien escrita y dotada de sutiles innovaciones técnicas, como esos argumentos más arbóreos, otro uso del flash-back que enriquecen los puntos de vista narrativos, y de paso al propio género.<br /><br /><b><i>El Periódico</i></b><br /><br />Un <i>thriller</i> completamente adictivo, con una trama fantástica. Con muchos giros inesperados y bastante acción. Muy recomendable.<br /><br /><b><i>Fantasy violet</i></b><br />Unthrillerpsicológico con tintes de novela negra que cuenta con todas las claves para mantenernos atentos a cada uno de sus capítulos. Un argumento elaborado repleto de intriga y acción, aparte de la tensión y la curiosidad que genera en el lector la evolución de la historia.<br /><b><i>Letras en vena</i></b><br /><br />Todo va sucediendo sin que sea demasiado atropellado, dejándonos sentir esa angustia que sienten Lidia y Claire. De verdad que llegas a sentir angustia, porque es tan buena la forma en la que lo transmite la autora que cala en ti. Creo que tiene un componente psicológico brutal. Una historia muy muy buena, con detalles, personajes muy bien logrados, tanto que parecía que recreaban las escenas ante ti. Intriga, traiciones, muertes, sexo, y un final que es de infarto.<br /><br /><b><i>Te deseo un libro</i></b>

Ένα παράθυρο έχει σπάσει, στις σκάλες διακρίνεται ένα χνάρι από αίμα και, στο τέλος της διαδρομής, η έφηβη κόρη της κείτεται νεκρή. Ένας άντρας στέκεται ακόμα πάνω από το πτώμα του κοριτσιού κρατώντας αιματοβαμμένο μαχαίρι. Η πάλη που θ’ ακολουθήσει αλλάζει για πάντα τη ζωή της Αμπιγκέιλ. Η τοπική αστυνομία που αναλαμβάνει την υπόθεση κάνει ένα σοβαρό λάθος το οποίο, όχι μόνο υπονομεύει την πορεία της έρευνας αλλά θέτει και σε κίνδυνο τη ζωή ενός νεαρού κοριτσιού. Έτσι, η υπόθεση ανατίθεται στον ντετέκτιβ Ουίλ Τρεντ που, για μια ακόμα φορά, θα αναγκαστεί να συνεργαστεί με κάποιον που τον αντιπαθεί. Για την ακρίβεια: με κάποιαν. Η ντετέκτιβ Φέιθ Μίτσελ έχει λόγους να τον μισεί: ο Ουίλ συμμετείχε σε μια έρευνα για τη διαφθορά στην αστυνομία και είχε αναγκάσει τη μητέρα της, αστυνόμο, να αφυπηρετήσει. Εντούτοις, υπό τον ανελέητο ήλιο της Τζόρτζια, ο Ουίλ και η Φέιθ συνειδητοποιούν ότι χρειάζεται να ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους για να εντοπίσουν ένα δολοφόνο ο οποίος έχει βάλει στο στόχαστρο τις πιο πλούσιες και προνομιούχες οικογένειες της περιοχής.

Description :  Claire e Lydia sono sorelle che non si parlano da più di vent'anni. I loro rapporti si sono interrotti quando Claire ha deciso di sposare Paul, affermato architetto, e di diventare la sua sofisticata moglie trofeo. Lydia, invece, è una madre single, ha una storia con un ex detenuto, e fatica ad arrivare alla fine del mese. Nessuna delle due è riuscita a superare la tragedia che ha colpito la loro famiglia quando Julia, la sorella maggiore, è scomparsa senza lasciare tracce, e la notizia che un'altra ragazza, anche lei giovane e bellissima, è sparita nel nulla in circostanze molto simili, di colpo riporta nelle loro vite tutto l'orrore e lo strazio del passato. Come se non bastasse, pochi giorni dopo Paul viene ucciso. Che legame c'è tra la scomparsa di un'adolescente e l'omicidio di un uomo di mezza età a quasi venticinque anni di distanza? Accantonata la reciproca diffidenza, le due sorelle si alleano per dissotterrare i segreti che hanno distrutto le loro vite, finendo per scoprire una scioccante verità dove meno se l'aspettano.
