Boston, 1890. Asilo Psiquiátrico Wayburne. Grace Mae vive um pesadelo: forçada a passar seus dias reclusa num manicômio, em meio a insanos de todo tipo, sobressaltada por gritos de horror a cada noite. Grace não é louca. Apenas não consegue esquecer os terríveis segredos de família. Terríveis o suficiente para calar sua voz - jamais ouvida por ninguém, a não ser ela mesma, dentro de sua mente brilhante. Mas, quando uma crise emocional violenta traz sua voz à tona, Grace é confinada em um porão escuro. É nesse momento em que ela conhece o dr. Thornhollow, um estudioso de psicologia criminal. Dona de um olhar aguçado e de uma memória prodigiosa, Grace passa a auxiliar o médico em investigações. Ambos escapam para uma instituição mais segura em Ohio, em busca de amizade e esperança. Mas a tranquilidade dura pouco: surge um assassino em série que ataca brutalmente jovens mulheres. Grace seguirá no encalço do criminoso, mesmo tendo de enfrentar seus próprios fantasmas. Em um thriller eletrizante, Mindy McGinnis explora com maestria narrativa a tênue linha entre sanidade e loucura, revelando o lado obscuro que existe em todos nós.

“A gem of a mystery, fast-paced and suspenseful.” --Catherine Coulter, # 1 New York Times bestselling author No suspects. No persons of interest. Just a girl who was alive one day and dead the next. Some places seem too beautiful to be touched by horror. Summit Lake, nestled in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, is that kind of place. But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student and daughter of a powerful attorney, was brutally murdered there. Now the town is reeling with grief, and the police are baffled. “An exciting debut, with all the right touches, captivating from the first page to the last.” --Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author At first, investigative reporter Kelsey Castle thinks of the assignment as a fluff piece. But the savagery of the crime, and the efforts to keep it quiet, hint at something far more sinister than a random attack by a stranger. As Kelsey digs deeper, despite danger and warnings, she feels a growing connection to the dead girl. And the more she learns about Becca’s friendships, her love life—and her secrets—the more convinced she becomes that walking in Becca’s footsteps could lead her out of her own dark past… “A swift, outstanding debut.” --Robert Dugoni, New York Times bestselling author “Fans of contemporary suspense will enjoy this brisk read.” --Booklist

Nobel Laureate and two-time Booker prize-winning author of Disgrace and The Life and Times of Michael K, J. M. Coetzee tells the remarkable story of a nation gripped in brutal apartheid in his Sunday Express Book of the Year award-winner Age of Iron. In Cape Town, South Africa, an elderly classics professor writes a letter to her distant daughter, recounting the strange and disturbing events of her dying days. She has been opposed to the lies and the brutality of apartheid all her life, but now she finds herself coming face to face with its true horrors: the hounding by the police of her servant's son, the burning of a nearby black township, the murder by security forces of a teenage activist who seeks refuge in her house. Through it all, her only companion, the only person to whom she can confess her mounting anger and despair, is a homeless man who one day appears on her doorstep. In Age of Iron, J. M. Coetzee brings his searing insight and masterful control of language to bear on one of the darkest episodes of our times. 'Quite simply a magnificent and unforgettable work' Daily Telegraph 'A superbly realized novel whose truth cuts to the bone' The New York Times 'A remarkable work by a brilliant writer' Wall Street Journal South African author J. M. Coetzee was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003 and was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice for his novels Disgrace and The Life and Times of Michael K. His novel, Foe, an exquisite reinvention of the story of Robinson Crusoe is also available in Penguin paperback.

Her story begins on a train. The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, they host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The prize? An audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball in Tokyo. Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele's twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move. But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission? From the author of The Walled City comes a fast-paced and innovative novel that will leave you breathless.
