Description :  <b>Mark Novak's greatest mystery may be his own...</b><br /><i>Rise the dark. </i>These were the last words written in Lauren Novak's notebook before she was murdered in a strange Florida village. They've never meant anything to the police or to her husband, investigator Markus Novak. Now the man he believes killed her is out of prison, and draws Markus to the place he's avoided for so long: the lonely road where his wife was shot to death beneath the cypress trees and Spanish moss in a town called Cassadaga. <br />In Red Lodge, Montana, a senseless act of vandalism shuts the lights off in the town where Sabrina Baldwin is still trying to adjust to a new home and mourning the loss of her brother, who was a high voltage linesman just like her husband, Jay. As the spring's final snowstorm calls Jay deeper into the mountains, chasing the destruction on the electrical grid, Sabrina is abducted by Garland Webb, the man Markus Novak believes killed his wife. Drawing them all together is a messianic villain who understands that you can never outpace your past. You can only rise against the future.<br /><b>Michael Koryta is...</b><b><br /></b>"Masterful." - Michael Connelly<br />"Riveting." - Harlan Coben<br />"A master." - Stephen King<br />"An absolute sizzler." - Lisa Unger<br />"A writer for the new century" - Tom Franklin<br />"One of today's finest." - William Kent Krueger<br />"A terrifying winner." - Dennis Lehane<br />"Electrifying." - Joseph Finder<br />"Deliciously dark." - Scott Smith<br />"Breathtaking." - Nelson DeMille<br />"A must-read." - Dean Koontz<br />"Outstanding." - Lee Child<br />"Gripping." - Stuart O'Nan

So when she confesses to her role in the brutal murders of Jackie Pelletier and Ian Kelly, the daughter of a well-known local family and her sweetheart, the locals have little reason to believe her story. <br />Not Rob Barrett, the FBI investigator and interrogator specializing in telling a true confession from a falsehood. He's been circling Kimberly and her conspirators for months, waiting for the right avenue to the truth, and has finally found it. He knows, as strongly as he's known anything, that Kimberly's story-a grisly, harrowing story of a hit and run fueled by dope and cheap beer that becomes a brutal stabbing in cold blood-is how it happened. But one thing remains elusive: where are Jackie and Ian's bodies?<br />After Barrett stakes his name and reputation on the truth of Kimberly's confession, only to have the bodies turn up 200 miles from where she said they'd be, shot in the back and covered in a different suspect's DNA, the case is quickly closed and Barrett forcibly reassigned. But for Howard Pelletier, the tragedy of his daughter's murder cannot be so tidily swept away. And for Barrett, whose career may already be over, the chance to help a grieving father may be the only one he has left.<br />HOW IT HAPPENED is a frightening, tension-filled ride into the dark heart of rural American from a writer Stephen King has called "a master" and the <i>New York Times</i> has deemed "impossible to resist."

Description :  <i>Sometime after midnight, on a moonless October night turned harsh by a fine, windswept rain, one of the men I liked least in the world was murdered in a field near Bedford, just south of the city....The detectives went looking for suspects--- people whose histories with Jefferson were adversarial and hostile. At the top of that list, they found me.</i><br /><br />So begins <i>A Welcome Grave,</i> the third novel by award-winning mystery writer Michael Koryta, featuring private investigator Lincoln Perry. Once a rising star on the Cleveland police force, Perry ended his career when he left one of the city's prominent attorneys, Alex Jefferson, bleeding in the parking lot of his country club---retribution for his affair with Perry's fiancée.<br /><br />Now Jefferson is dead, the victim of a brutal murder, and his widow has called upon Perry for a favor he knows he shouldn't accept but can't turn down: to find Jefferson's estranged son, partial beneficiary of the dead man's fortune. The case is simple enough, a routine "locate," and he'll be paid plenty of money for the work. The encounter should be simple, too: a brief exchange of information and maybe an empty condolence before Perry gets back into his truck and returns home. Instead, he's loaded into a police car and taken to a rural jail while Jefferson's son is zipped into a body bag.<br /><br />Perry soon learns that Jefferson's millions are the target of a thirst for revenge that hasn't been satisfied by blood. As a pair of deadly assailants push deep into the investigator's life, they bring with them police from two states who are determined to see Perry in jail. <br /><br />Building on the skill that prompted the <i>Toronto Sun</i> to call him "one of America's best young mystery writers," Michael Koryta makes <i>A Welcome Grave </i>an intense exploration of the lengths to which a desperate man is forced to go in order to clear his name and solve a crime. This is a thrilling new book that justifies the critical acclaim and solidifies his role as an emerging talent among today's top writers.

Author : Michael Koryta
Genre :  Mysteries & Thrillers  Books 
Price :  $12.99
Release Date :  2012-09-13
Description :  El detective privado Lincoln Perry es sospechoso de homicidio. El cadáver en cuestión es Alex Jefferson, marido de su ex prometida y uno de los abogados más prominentes de la ciudad. En realidad, la policía no se equivoca al pensar que hubo un tiempo en que Perry querría haber visto muerto a Jefferson, especialmente después de que se casara con su prometida. Pero, desde aquello, ha pasado mucho tiempo.<br /><br />La cosa se complica cuando la propia viuda insiste en que sea Perry quien se encargue de localizar al hijo perdido de Jefferson, heredero de la fortuna de su padre. Un encargo de lo más rutinario que resulta no serlo cuando el hijo aparece muerto. Para entonces, Lincoln ya ha comprendido que el caso es mucho más complicado de lo que parece y, con la policía de dos estados pisándole los talones, tendrá que demostrar su inocencia y resolver el caso.<br /><br />Con su tercera novela, Michael Koryta se confirma en el aplauso de la crítica y se posiciona como uno de los autores jóvenes de novela negra más interesantes del panorama actual.<br /><br />«Su estilo, seco y conciso, recuerda el de autores como Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler y, sobre todo, Ross Macdonald y su investigador privado Lew Archer. Porque Lincoln Perry, el detective de la novela de Koryta, es un digno heredero de estos duros históricos, con sus métodos poco ortodoxos, la obsesión febril por desentrañar una endiablada trama de asesinato, la fidelidad y el honor a unos principios y la amistad por encima de las convenciones.»&#xa0;<br />Lluís Fernández, La Razón

Description :  La vita di Eric Shaw, giovane regista di Chicago, sembra aver imboccato un&#39;inarrestabile china discendente. Svaniti i sogni di gloria hollywoodiani, abbandonato dalla moglie, per sbarcare il lunario Eric produce filmini celebrativi per matrimoni, lauree, battesimi, funerali. Soprattutto funerali, la sua nicchia di successo. Perché, come enigmaticamente gli sussurra la sua nuova e ricca cliente Alyssa Bradford, Eric ha un dono: sa riportare in vita ciò che non esiste piú. Alyssa è la nuora di Campbell Bradford, miliardario ultranovantenne in procinto di lasciare questo mondo, la quale commissiona al regista un video che renda omaggio al suocero, al suo talento e all&#39;immenso patrimonio da lui accumulato - piuttosto misteriosamente - dopo essere partito negli anni Venti da un minuscolo villaggio dell&#39;Indiana.<br/> Un luogo - French Lick e la vicina West Baden - che Alyssa non esita a definire «surreale» e dove è certa che Eric, proprio grazie al suo inspiegabile intuito, riuscirà a scoprire i segreti che ammantano i primi passi dell&#39;eccentrico miliardario.<br/> Unico indizio, che Alyssa consegna a Eric: una strana bottiglia che rimane sempre fredda, ghiacciata anche sotto il sole primaverile di Chicago.<br/> Contiene la «Pluto Water, l&#39;acqua della salute» prodotta dalle sorgenti di West Baden e assai rinomata ai tempi di Al Capone, del Proibizionismo, e della gioventú di Bradford.<br/> Nel giro di poche ore dal suo arrivo al West Baden Springs Hotel, l&#39;albergo dal grande tetto a cupola un tempo frequentato da presidenti e gangster e di recente ricondotto all&#39;antico splendore, Eric, spinto da una forza sovrannaturale ad assaggiare l&#39;oscura e repellente acqua di Campbell Bradford, cade in preda a terrificanti allucinazioni.<br/> Figure minacciose - uno spietato uomo con la bombetta, il violento gestore di una bisca, un distillatore clandestino di whisky e il suo giovane nipote analfabeta che dall&#39;inseparabile violino trae delle note angeliche e inquietanti - appaiono davanti ai suoi occhi, come arcani segni di un male profondo da cui quel luogo sembra irrimediabilmente segnato.<br/> Terrorizzato ma ormai attratto dalle torbide vicende dei Bradford - il moribondo magnate e il suo cinico e violento nipote Josiah - e dipendente dall&#39;acqua che gli permette di riviverle, Eric intraprende un pericoloso percorso alla ricerca del Lost River, il fiume perduto, una fonte d&#39;acqua sotterranea che sola può portarlo a conoscere l&#39;angosciosa e mortale verità.

Shaw accepte, Alyssa lui confiant alors une bouteille d’« Eau de Pluton » que le vieil homme a conservée toute sa vie et dont, curieux, Eric boit quelques gorgées.<br /><br />Arrivé à French Lick, Indiana – la ville natale de Bradford –, le vidéaste découvre un superbe hôtel récemment restauré, où les célébrités des années vingt venaient profiter des bienfaits d’eaux censées soigner tous les maux. Et presque aussitôt, il a une vision terrifiante. Les jours passant, ses hallucinations, toutes liées à l’Eau du Pluton, ne feront que s’amplifier et, un détail vérifié après l’autre, lui révéler le passé tumultueux et violent de cette vallée de la Rivière Perdue sur laquelle Campbell régnait jadis en maître. Se pourrait-il qu’un mal depuis longtemps oublié ait été, comme l’hôtel, ramené à la vie ?
