«Reacher mi cattura dalla prima pagina fino all'ultima. Tra gli scrittori di thriller, Lee Child per me è il numero 1.» Ken Follett «I suoi romanzi sono davvero straordinari.» Stephen King «Il miglior autore contemporaneo di narrativa crime.» Haruki Murakami «Dà un nuovo significato al concetto di page-tuner.» Michael Connelly «Lee Child ci sa fare con le parole. Sono un suo fan.» James Patterson Le avventure di Jack Reacher - vol. 1 Nome: Jack Reacher, ex agente della polizia militare, un vero duro, distintosi per coraggio e onestà nelle molteplici azioni in cui è stato impegnato, fino a diventare una leggenda vivente. Luogo: Margrave, una tranquilla cittadina della Georgia rurale, dove nulla sembra accadere e tutto pare avvolto nel più assoluto anonimato. Jack Reacher giunge a Margrave proprio nel momento in cui la polizia scopre un efferato delitto. Ma, quel che è peggio, in breve le indagini sembrano far convergere su di lui tutti i sospetti. Chiuso nella prigione della contea, Jack dovrà dimostrare – fino a prova contraria – la propria innocenza a un’intera comunità che lo ha già condannato. Jack non è un uomo che si arrende facilmente. E quando scopre che la vittima è addirittura suo fratello, si decide a passare all'azione. Anche se sa bene di non poter contare su nessuno e di essere entrato in una zona pericolosa. In questo esordio narrativo ad alta tensione, Lee Child si dimostra degno dei migliori maestri del thriller. Abile nelle descrizioni e nella caratterizzazione dei personaggi, egli riesce a fondere mirabilmente suspense e colpi di scena in una miscela esplosiva di emozioni, coinvolgendo dall’inizio alla fine il lettore nel suo sottile labirinto fatto di ipotesi e di trepide attese.

Winner of the Alessandro Manzoni Prize for Fiction Venice at the end of the 1500s is an unforgiving city. The Doge rules with an iron fist and the Holy Office harbors suspicions about everything and everyone. Even the walls have eyes. The Republic of Venice watches and listens, then passes judgment swiftly and definitively. In a city where everyone is assumed guilty of something, a young stonemason by the name of Michele has been accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Afraid for his life, he flees the city aboard a galley carrying gold coin, leaving behind his young wife, Bianca. Banished from his home, Michele embarks on a series of extraordinary adventures as the ship he travels on stops in every port and on every island of the Mediterranean. In order to survive this once naïve and immature boy must fast become a man, one possessed of cunning, courage and fortitude. Bianca remains alone in the cruel and treacherous Venice. She faces challenges that are, if anything, even more difficult than those of Michele, and will encounter all the terrors and mysteries that the labyrinthine city holds in its blind alleys and narrow passageways. And she, like Michele, will discover in herself a tenacious and indestructible will to survive. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sono un suo fan.» James Patterson Le avventure di Jack Reacher - vol. 2 Il maggiore Jack Reacher ha un passato da eroe: West Point, tredici anni di servizio, medaglie e riconoscimenti... Il suo presente, invece, è quello di un uomo che si è scrollato di dosso le inflessibili regole dell’esercito e che vaga per gli Stati Uniti, lasciandosi guidare soltanto dal proprio istinto. Almeno fino a quando, in una luminosa giornata di giugno, vede uscire da una tintoria di Chicago una giovane donna, che si appoggia faticosamente a una stampella. Jack si ferma e le offre aiuto, ma, non appena i due si avviano, si trovano davanti tre individui armati... Ammanettato alla donna e rinchiuso in un soffocante furgone lanciato verso una destinazione ignota, Jack Reacher ha un’unica certezza: si è trovato nel luogo sbagliato al momento sbagliato. E questa certezza, ovviamente, non gli basta: deve scoprire il motivo di quel rapimento, e scoprirlo in fretta, per salvare se stesso e la donna... Già, la donna: dice di chiamarsi Holly Johnson, di essere un’agente dell’FBI e lui le crede, anche perché dimostra una saldezza di nervi fuori del comune. Ma è pure sicuro che Holly nasconde qualcosa, un segreto che non può (o non vuole) rivelare neanche a lui, alla sua unica speranza di salvezza. Perché, nonostante tutto, Jack è proprio l’uomo giusto da avere accanto in una situazione che, di chilometro in chilometro, si fa sempre più disperata. E, col trascorrere delle ore, mentre l’FBI, la CIA e la Casa Bianca brancolano nel buio, Jack diventerà l’unico uomo al mondo in grado di fronteggiare il vortice di paura e di follia che si spalanca davanti a lui e a Holly. Un vortice che potrebbe risucchiare l’intero Paese in una spirale d’indicibile terrore..

The Library: Only a handful know it exists . . . It holds the world's most astonishing—and terrifying—information . . . But the one book that is the key to the greatest secret of all time . . . is missing. Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved—and survived—the "Doomsday Killer" case . . . and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest—and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries. This is the book that inspired Shakespeare and the prophecies of Nostradamus, and once Will gets his hands on it, his life will be worth nothing—his death sentence a top priority handed down from the very highest levels of power. Because there are some truths too dangerous for anyone to know—those that concern the future, world domination . . . and the end of everything.

When the incomplete invention of a genius environmentalist falls into the wrong hands, it’s the NUMA crew that will be the first casualties of war, and team leader Kurt Austin will stop at nothing to get justice for his fellow agents in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series. In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset, when a crew member spots the familiar sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames. A few hours later, Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and other members of the NUMA Special Assignments Team are dispatched to check on their colleagues. They find no survivors, but the remains of a new technological marvel on the smoldering hulk of the ship point them towards a new adversary. Knowing the victims makes this mission deeply personal for Austin and Zavala. They’ll uncover the scheme: an audacial plan to alter the weather on a global scale. They’ll find the technology that can make it happen: microrobots, originally designed to stave off polution. But what they may not learn in time is the face of their true enemy. And, on assignment this close to the hearts and minds of the NUMA crew, the danger is likely to hit close to home. Filled with the high-stakes suspense and boundless imagination that are unique to Cussler, The Storm is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

Mancano 61 ore al processo più importante mai avvenuto da quelle parti e c'è una testimone da proteggere. Janet Salter è un'innocente bibliotecaria in pensione, ma ha visto qualcosa che non avrebbe dovuto vedere e ora la sua vita è in pericolo. Forse per questo tutta la polizia del luogo è schierata al suo fianco. L'ultima cosa di cui Bolton ha bisogno è l'arrivo di uno «straniero» ingombrante e pericoloso come Jack Reacher. E invece è proprio quello che accade. Un incidente ha bloccato il pullman di gitanti che ha dato un passaggio a Reacher e adesso lui è lì, come sempre l'uomo giusto nel posto sbagliato. A Reacher basta poco tempo per intuire che troppe cose non tornano e che, nonostante il dispiegamento delle forze dell'ordine, la vita della testimone non è affatto al sicuro. Qualcuno potrebbe tradire. Mentre la temperatura non sale mai sopra lo zero e il conto alla rovescia prosegue implacabile, Reacher decide di indagare e, in quella situazione, c'è solo una persona cui può rivolgersi: il maggiore Susan Turner, la donna che ha preso il suo posto nell'esercito, al comando della 110a unità della polizia militare. È con il suo aiuto che Reacher scoprirà cosa si nasconde veramente in un edificio costruito più di cinquant'anni prima in mezzo alla neve e al nulla, un edificio solo apparentemente abbandonato, ma in realtà custode di un segreto spaventoso.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s Bad Luck and Trouble. In Lee Child’s astonishing new thriller, ex–military cop Reacher sees more than most people would...and because of that, he’s thrust into an explosive situation that’s about to blow up in his face. For the only way to find the truth—and save two innocent lives—is to do it the way Jack Reacher does it best: the hard way…. Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he’ll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance—because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world. On the trail of a vicious kidnapper, Reacher is learning the chilling secrets of his employer’s past…and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war. He’s beginning to realize that Edward Lane is hiding something. Something dirty. Something big. But Reacher also knows this: he’s already in way too deep to stop now.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s Make Me. Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier’s son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case. New Year’s Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina “hot-sheets” motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can’t be controlled. Within hours the general’s wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall. Two Special Forces soldiers—the toughest of the tough—are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher—an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit—is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have. But Reacher won’t quit. He’s fighting a new kind of war. And he’s taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn’t know he had. With his French-born mother dying—and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret—Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed…about his family, his career, his loyalties—and himself. Because this soldier’s son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death—and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Before Jack Reacher became the seminal, nomadic hero he is today and #1 New York Times bestselling writer Lee Child reached his current iconic literary stature, there was James Penney, who we meet in this intense Thriller Short. Penney was originally envisioned as a character in Child’s second Jack Reacher tale, Die Trying. Though an interesting character, Penney was ultimately excised during the editing process and readers didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him.

Twentieth century detective Isaac Bell takes on the world of warfare when America’s naval research and development experts begin to die one by one in this #1 New York Times-bestselling historical action adventure. 1908 marks a year of ever-escalating international tension as the world plunges toward war. And with America on the brink, it comes as a devastating blow to learn of the apparent suicide of one of the United States’ most brilliant battleship-gun designers. The death becomes a media sensation, and the man’s grief-stricken daughter turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency to clear her father’s name. Van Dorn puts his chief investigator on the case, and Isaac Bell soon sees that the clues point not to suicide, but to murder. As Bell notices more suspicious deaths among the nation’s sharpest technological minds, he begins to suspect the work of an elusive spy somehow connected to a top-secret project called Hull 44. But that is just the beginning. As the intrigue deepens, Bell will find himself pitted against German, Japanese, and British spies, in a mission that encompasses dreadnought battleships, Teddy Roosevelt’s Great White Fleet, Chinatown, Hell’s Kitchen, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Isaac Bell has certainly faced perilous situations before, but this time it is more than the future of his country that’s at stake—it’s the fate of the world.
