Par un petit matin pluvieux et glacé de novembre, le corps de Connor Swann, gendre du célèbre chef d’orchestre Sir Gerald Asherton, est repêché dans la Tamise. Impossible de conclure à l’accident et de classer l’affaire : la victime porte des traces manifestes de strangulation. Aussi Scotland Yard dépêche-t-il sur les lieux l’un de ses plus fins limiers, le superintendant Duncan Kincaid, accompagné de son inséparable assistante Gemma James. Ce n’est d’ailleurs pas la première tragédie qui frappe les Asherton. Déjà, vingt ans plus tôt, Matthew Asherton, promis par ses dons musicaux à une carrière de jeune prodige, avait péri de la sorte. Quelle malédiction s’acharne sur cette famille, l’une des plus en vue des milieux artistiques londoniens ? D’inavouables secrets vont-ils surgir de l’enquête ?

Récemment promue inspecteur, Gemma James, l’héroïne que les lecteurs de Deborah Crombie connaissent bien, voit sa vie professionnelle, bien sûr, mais aussi personnelle, bouleversée. Duncan Kincaid et elle décident finalement de vivre ensemble, dans une grande maison qui pourra accueillir leurs enfants respectifs et le bébé qu’ils attendent. La première énigme dont Gemma est chargée concerne l’assassinat de Dawn, la très jeune épouse d’un riche antiquaire, trouvée égorgée devant la porte de son domicile. L’enquête apporte quelques révélations, puis s’enlise. Jusqu’à ce que Gemma évoque l’affaire avec Duncan : les circonstances de la mort lui rappellent un crime dont il s’est occupé quelques mois plus tôt et qui n’a pas été élucidé. S’agirait-il de l’acte d’un tueur en série ou y aurait-il un lien entre les deux victimes ?

Pour Gemma James, Hazel Cavendish était une amie sans mystère. Mais que sait-on vraiment de ses amis ? Le week-end s’annonçait paisible : un stage culinaire sous l’égide d’un grand chef, dans une confortable hôtellerie des Highlands à Innesfree, en compagnie d’Hazel. Paisible ? Pas vraiment. Car dès les premières heures de leur séjour, la présence d’Hazel semble susciter – de la part des gens du pays – une réaction de méfiance, voire d’hostilité... Et quelle place a bien pu occuper jadis, dans la vie d’Hazel, leur hôte, le trop charmant Donald Brodie ? La vérité ne tarde pas à se manifester. Issus de deux familles ennemies mais également célèbres dans le monde de la distillation, Donald et Hazel, que tout portait l’un vers l’autre, ont dû renoncer à leur amour. Mais les cendres de leur passion sont-elles vraiment bien éteintes ? Brusquement, la « machine infernale » se met en route. Donald est assassiné. Hazel, son héritière désignée, devient la principale suspecte. Une suspecte vraiment trop parfaite aux yeux de Gemma James qui, pour explorer vraiment « l’empire du malt », devra faire appel au plus vite à son compagnon le plus sûr, l’inspecteur Kincaid, l’étoile montante du Yard.

When perpetual bachelor Gunder Jomann goes to India for two weeks and comes home married, the town of Elvestad is stunned.

None of the "good people of Elvestad" can believe that anyone among them would be capable of such a brutal murder. But in his quiet, formal way, Inspector Konrad Sejer understands that good people can commit atrocious deeds, and that no one is altogether innocent—including the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a chief witness, and the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.

From the internationally acclaimed author of Gould’s Book of Fish comes an astonishing new novel, a riveting portrayal of a society driven by fear. What would you do if you turned on the television and saw you were the most wanted terrorist in the country? Gina Davies is about to find out when, after a night spent with an attractive stranger, she becomes a prime suspect in the investigation of an attempted terrorist attack. In The Unknown Terrorist, one of the most brilliant writers working in the English language today turns his attention to the most timely of subjects — what our leaders tell us about the threats against us, and how we cope with living in fear. Chilling, impossible to put down, and all too familiar, The Unknown Terrorist is a relentless tour de force that paints a devastating picture of a contemporary society gone haywire, where the ceaseless drumbeat of terror alert levels, newsbreaks, and fear of the unknown pushes a nation ever closer to the breaking point.

Manabu Yukawa, the physicist known as "Detective Galileo," has traveled to Hariguara, a once-popular summer resort town that has fallen on hard times. He is there to speak at a conference on a planned underwater mining operation, which has sharply divided the town. One faction is against the proposed operation, concerned about the environmental impact on the area, known for its pristine waters. The other faction, seeing no future in the town as it is, believes its only hope lies in the development project. The night after the tense panel discussion, one of the resort's guests is found dead on the seashore at the base of the local cliffs. The local police at first believe it was a simple accident—that he wandered over the edge while walking on unfamiliar territory in the middle of the night. But when they discover that the victim was a former policeman and that the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning, they begin to suspect he was murdered, and his body tossed off the cliff to misdirect the police. As the police try to uncover where Tsukahara was killed and why, Yukawa finds himself enmeshed in yet another confounding case of murder. In a series of twists as complex and surprising as any in Higashino's brilliant, critically acclaimed work, Galileo uncovers the hidden relationship behind the tragic events that led to this murder.

Earth refugees threaten a peaceful space settlement in this influential novel from the Golden Age science fiction author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. More than two thousand years in the future, a small human colony thrives on the ocean paradise of Thalassa—sent there centuries ago to continue the human race before Earth’s destruction. Thalassa’s resources are vast—and the human colony has lived a bucolic life there. But their existence is threatened when the spaceship Magellan arrives on their world—carrying one million refugees from Earth, fleeing the dying planet. Reputed to be Arthur C. Clarke’s favorite novel, The Songs of Distant Earth addresses several fascinating scientific questions unresolved in their time—including the question of why so few neutrinos from the sun have been measured on Earth. In addition, Clarke presents an inventive depiction of the use of vacuum energy to power spacecraft—and the technical logistics of space travel near the speed of light. “Clarke’s simple, musical style never falters in this novel, which is a sobering yet far from bleak commentary on humanity’s longing for the stars. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal
