David Harper, lieutenant à la brigade criminelle de la police de Pennsylvanie, poursuit sans relâche les malfaiteurs et les meurtriers. Il adore son job. Pour lui, les règles sont les règles et jeter les assassins en prison obéit à son sens de la justice. Quand un tueur mystérieux sème la terreur à Philadelphie en reproduisant sur ses victimes d’antiques rites funéraires, il n’a d’autre choix que de se tourner vers la victime survivante d’une agression identique. Depuis trois ans, Morgan Hicks est interné en hôpital psychiatrique pour avoir voulu agresser l’un de ses étudiants qu’il soupçonne d’avoir momifié sa petite amie. Pour les besoins de son enquête, Harper obtient de ses supérieurs qu’il soit provisoirement relâché. S’engageant dans une véritable course contre la montre, les deux hommes se lancent à la poursuite du serial killer, lequel semble bien décidé à semer la Mort sur la ville pour s’ouvrir ainsi les portes de l’au-delà... à moins qu’il ne s’agisse d’assouvir une terrible vengeance.

Return to the pulse-pounding world of FBI special agent Maggie O’Dell, in book two of the bestselling series by Alex Cava. They dubbed him the Collector, so named for his ritual of collecting victims before disposing of them in the most heinous ways possible. FBI profiler Maggie O’Dell tracked him for two years, finally ending their game of cate and mouse. Now Albert Stucky has escaped from prison…and he is setting up a new game for Maggie. Some say Maggie O’Dell has lost her edge. Since capturing Stucky, she has been walking a tightwire, battling nightmares and guilt over the victims she couldn’t save. Now that Stucky is loose again, she’s been pulled out of the field. But as Stucky’s trail of victims leads closer and closer to Maggie, she is put back on the case under the supervision of Special Agent R. J. Tully. Together they race against the clock to hunt the killer, and Maggie finds herself pushed to the very edge. Has her desire to stop Albert Stucky become a matter of personal vengeance? Has she crossed the line? And has that been Stucky’s goal all along—to make her into a monster? Originally published in 2001

Virginia Woolf S Mrs Dalloway

In this companion book to Mrs. Dalloway, Molly Hoff illuminates much that is hidden in Virginia Woolf's celebrated and often misunderstood novel. Mrs. Dalloway is brimming with references, both overt and subtle, to other works of literature, historical events, and goings-on in Woolf's own life. Invisible Presences serves, as Hoff states in her preface, "as a kind of reference manual for commentary on individual passages that may be of interest." Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway: Invisible Presences will doubtless provide a wealth of material to enrich lesson plans and syllabi for those who, as Hoff puts it, "profess literature." It however has its own beginning, middle, and end to guide any reader. Thus it serves as two books at once. It is hoped it will lead to a deep understanding of Mrs. Dalloway and Woolf's method in general.

The long-awaited magnum opus from Haruki Murakami, in which this revered and bestselling author gives us his hypnotically addictive, mind-bending ode to George Orwell's 1984. The year is 1984. Aomame is riding in a taxi on the expressway, in a hurry to carry out an assignment. Her work is not the kind that can be discussed in public. When they get tied up in traffic, the taxi driver suggests a bizarre 'proposal' to her. Having no other choice she agrees, but as a result of her actions she starts to feel as though she is gradually becoming detached from the real world. She has been on a top secret mission, and her next job leads her to encounter the superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange disturbance that develops over a literary prize. While Aomame and Tengo impact on each other in various ways, at times by accident and at times intentionally, they come closer and closer to meeting. Eventually the two of them notice that they are indispensable to each other. Is it possible for them to ever meet in the real world?

"An impassioned, funny, probing, fiercely inconclusive, nearly-to-the-death debate, about life and art-cocktails included. Caleb Powell always wanted to become an artist, but he overcommitted to life (he's a stay-at-home dad to three young girls). DavidShields always wanted to become a human being, but he has overcommitted to art. At antipodes since first meeting twenty-five years ago, they headed to a cabin in the Cascade Mountains and threw down. The focus? Life vs. Art. Over the next four days they played chess, shot hoops, hiked, relaxed in a hot tub, watched My Dinner with Andre, Sideways, The Trip, and talked about everything they could think of-genocide, marriage, sex, Toni Morrison, sports, porn, the death penalty, baldness, evil, James Wood, happiness, sports radio, George Bush, drugs, death, betrayal, alcohol, Rupert Murdoch, Judaism, bad book titles-in the name of exploring their central question. While confounding, as much as possible, the divisions between "reality" and "fiction" and between "life" and "art," their dialogue remains dazzlingly provocative and entertaining from start to finish"--

Emergency landing. Uncharted planet. Erotic captivity of epic proportions. Right when Captain Alec Hamlin thinks it can't get any crazier, his team is sold to their captors' mighty sovereign. King Zercy of the Kríe. Ruler of the planet's most formidable species. Man, is he imposing. So regal and larger than life. And way too savagely handsome for Alec's liking. From the first moment he laid eyes on him, he knew the Kríe was trouble, knew he needed to steer clear of him at all costs. But when Zercy chooses Alec to be his personal pet, all plans to dodge the male fall by the wayside. Alec is forced to spend each evening in the alluring king's company, each night bound to the seductive king's bed. Wholly at his mercy. Utterly defenseless, in his own mind and most especially his restless body. His struggle is real. Because the more Alec gets to know Zercy, the more he realizes two things. The Kríe king is damaged-unstable, not right, making him unpredictable and highly dangerous. But he is also innately kind beneath the raging storm that torments him. Kind and genuine, with a sad but beautiful soul. Something Alec fights with all he is, not to acknowledge. He can't fall for Zercy. Zercy is the enemy. The captor of both Alec and his team. Which means Alec needs to get them out of there, before it's too late. Before emotions overthrow logic and take control of the wheel. If only his body didn't crave Zercy so fiercely, and his heart didn't want him just as badly. With Search and Rescue due any day, and Alec's team getting antsy, Alec is forced to make a decision. He can't have it both ways. Is he the captain of his men, bound to obligation, or is he a man in love with a Kríe? Warning: Erotic romance. Contains explicitly scorching gay sex with exotic and shamelessly kinky males of otherworldly descent.
