In der Wüste von Arizona läuft ein Mann über die einzig vorhandene Straße - ein Albino, der einen Anzug, aber keine Schuhe trägt. Er weiß weder, wer er ist, noch, woher er kommt. Sein einziger Anhaltspunkt ist ein Buch in seiner Jackentasche, das einem Solomon Creed gewidmet ist. Heißt er so? Vermutlich. Der Name kommt ihm bekannt vor. Als er sich umdreht, entdeckt er in der Ferne ein brennendes Flugzeugwrack. War er in dem Flugzeug? Vielleicht. Solomon Creed wird es herausfinden - und auch, wer die Männer sind, die ihn jagen und töten wollen ...

A visceral thriller from the creator of the hit BBC drama Silent Witness, introducing synaesthetic detective DCI Mark Lapslie. Perfect for fans of M.J. Arlidge and Angela Marsons. I've looked into the eyes of women who have banged nine-inch nails into the skulls of their victims with hammers ... we evaluate them, trying to determine whether they have actually changed, or whether there's still a core of evil within them... Before his diagnosis, DCI Mark Lapslie thought everyone was like him. Now he knows he suffers from synaethesthesia - a rare neurological condition that has cross-wired his senses. The sickening clamour of sounds he can taste has smothered his marriage and stifled his career. At the scene of a fatal traffic accident, Lapslie's interest isn't in the recently deceased driver, rather the desiccated corpse found lying next to him. Something about the body stirs a fleeting recollection at the back of Lapslie's mind... he can't quite put his finger on it, but he can almost taste it... Memories haunt Violet Chambers. Taking tea with her friend Daisy, she knows it's time to move on. As Daisy falls to the floor, eyes streaming, face burning, Violet calmly waits. Black hellebore is remarkably potent. It won't be long now. Discover the other books in the DCI Mark Lapslie series: Tooth and Claw, Scream, Thirteenth Coffin and Flesh and Blood.

Best friends tell each other the truth – don't they? When North Stone's best friend Kelly Orton is found hanging lifeless in a tree, North knows for certain it wasn't suicide. Kelly had everything to live for – a loving boyfriend, a happy life, and most importantly of all, Kelly would never leave North all by herself. The girls have been friends since childhood, devoted to each other, soul sisters, or at least that's what North has always believed. But did Kelly feel the same way, or was she keeping secrets from her 'best friend' – deadly secrets... When the police refuse to take North's suspicions seriously, she sets out to investigate for herself. But her search soon takes her to a glamorous world with a seedy underbelly, and before long North is out of her depth and getting ever closer to danger. Determined to find the truth, she soon wishes that dead girls could lie, because the truth is too painful to believe... 'In this well written novel the author made me feel North's frustration, and enjoyed the flashbacks of her friendship with Kelly which illustrated their mutual dependence, or was it North's need for Kelly which made their bond so strong?'

Der neue Bestseller des Goncourt-Preisträgers Pierre Lemaitre »Innerhalb weniger Minuten hat sein Leben die Richtung geändert. Er ist ein Mörder. Doch die beiden Bilder passen nicht zusammen, man kann nicht zwölf Jahre alt und ein Mörder sein.« Ende Dezember 1999 verschwindet im französischen Ort Beauval ein sechsjähriger Junge. Eine großangelegte Suchaktion wird gestartet, Nachbarn und Freunde durchkämmen den angrenzenden Wald nach Spuren des vermissten Rémi. Doch am dritten Tag fegt ein Jahrhundertsturm über das kleine Dorf hinweg und zwingt die Einwohner von Beauval zurück in ihre Häuser. Während dieser drei Tage bangt der zwölfjährige Antoine darum, entdeckt zu werden. Denn nur er weiß, was an jenem Tag wirklich geschah. Und nur er könnte davon erzählen. Mit großer Sensibilität spürt Pierre Lemaitre dem grausamen Schicksal seines jungen Protagonisten nach und stellt die Frage, wie es sich mit einer lebenslangen Schuld leben lässt. »Mit seinem ausgeprägten Gespür für Tempo und Gefühl rollt Pierre Lemaitre den Schicksalsfaden einer Tragödie ab.« LIRE
