Release Date :  2010-12-31
Description :  Un delitto è sempre orribile. Ma se a morire è una ragazzina undicenne, di colore, colpita apparentemente per puro caso, allora una cappa nera di odio rischia di avvolgere l’intera comunità e di suscitare un’irrefrenabile sete di vendetta. E infatti gli occhi di tutta San Francisco sono puntati sul tenente Lindsay Boxer, capo della Squadra Omicidi: è sua la responsabilità di trovare l’assassino, il pazzo che ha sparato dozzine di pallottole contro la La Salle Heights Church, uccidendo però soltanto la piccola Tasha Catchings. Ma Lindsay, senza indizi concreti né piste valide, brancola nel buio e, contro ogni logica, si aggrappa a un’intuizione: forse il movente di quell’omicidio non è l’odio razziale, bensì un impulso oscuro, più sfuggente e quindi molto più pericoloso. E sa pure che c’è un’unica strada per dare corpo a quella sua idea, cioè chiedere aiuto al Women’s Murder Club, formato da lei e dalle «tre menti più acute e brillanti della città»: il medico legale Claire Washburn, il sostituto procuratore distrettuale Jill Bernhardt e la giornalista Cindy Thomas. Unite da un patto di amicizia e di collaborazione, le quattro donne scandagliano ogni pista e ogni sospetto, ignare del fatto che le loro indagini rischiano di portare alla luce un segreto destinato a sconvolgere anche la loro vita privata, cambiandola per sempre. Perché qualcuno, nell’ombra, le sta osservando, in attesa di una seconda chance, e non si fermerà davanti a nulla pur di cogliere quell’opportunità…

Chi si nasconde dietro questo nome? Quale disegno di morte sta insanguinando San Francisco che si prepara a ospitare il G8?

Włączony do śledztwa Ty Hauck, były policjant, odkrywa spisek, który może zachwiać międzynarodowym rynkiem finansowym.

Description :  „<i>Ocalić jednego</i> to najbardziej wzruszająca i pasjonująca z dotychczasowych książek Grossa, które miłośnicy II wojny światowej powinni dodać do listy swoich lektur obowiązkowych”.<i> Washington Post</i><br /> Rok 1944. Profesor fizyki Alfred Mendl zostaje rozdzielony z rodziną i wysłany do obozu koncentracyjnego Auschwitz. Jego dorobek naukowy ginie w płomieniach – notatki, rozprawy, książki. Naziści nie mają pojęcia, co zniszczyli. Brak zapisków powoduje, że profesor jest jednym z dwóch ludzi na świecie, którzy posiadają wiedzę w wyjątkowej i pożądanej dziedzinie fizyki: energii jądrowej; wiedzę, która może przeważyć szale wojny i doprowadzić do jej zakończenia.<br /> Nathan Blum, porucznik amerykańskiego wywiadu wojskowego, pracuje za biurkiem w waszyngtońskiej kwaterze głównej Biura Służb Strategicznych, ale pragnie zrobić więcej dla swojego kraju. Nieoczekiwanie dowiaduje się, że posiada umiejętności pilnie potrzebne armii Stanów Zjednoczonych. Włada płynnie językiem polskim i niemieckim, ma semickie rysy i jako młody człowiek dowiódł niezwykłej pomysłowości, uciekając z żydowskiego getta w Krakowie. Amerykański rząd pragnie, aby podjął się najbardziej niebezpiecznej misji swojego życia. Ma przeniknąć do Auschwitz, żeby odnaleźć, a następnie wyprowadzić jednego człowieka.<br /> Nowy thriller historyczny Andrew Grossa, autora bestsellerów New York Timesa, to wzruszająca książka - trzymająca w napięciu opowieść pełna nieoczekiwanych zwrotów akcji, osadzona w przerażająco znajomych, a jednocześnie niezwykle pasjonujących czasach.
