Deaver, Jeffery

The burial hour / Jeffery Deaver

London : Hodder & Stoughton, 2018

Abstract: A traveling businessman is snatched off of an Upper East Side street in broad daylight–or so it appears to the nine-year-old girl who is the crime’s only witness. The perp leaves a token at the site of the kidnapping–a miniature noose. A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate. Rhyme and Sachs’ investigation takes an unexpected turn when a similar kidnapping occurs across the Atlantic in a small town outside of Naples, Italy. The killer’s M.O. is bizarre and frightening. Obsessed with music, the man records the final breaths of his victims, then uses a keyboard sampler to compose an otherworldly tune that is then posted online. The search for the killer will become a complex case of international cooperation–yet not all is as it seems, and soon Sachs and Rhyme find themselves playing a dangerous game with shadowy parties from across the globe.

Abstract: James Whitehouse è il padre e il marito che tutti vorrebbero avere affianco: premuroso, attento, sempre presente. Per questo, quando viene accusato di stupro di una donna con cui lo stesso James ha ammesso di aver avuto una relazione, alla moglie Sophie crolla il mondo addosso. Non può essere colpevole. Non può essere il James con cui condivide le gioie e i dolori di ogni giorno, con cui porta i bambini al parco e con cui divide il letto ad aver commesso quel crimine orribile. Eppure le testimonianze della donna stuprata sono molto precise e convincenti. Sotto i piedi di Sophie si apre allora un baratro di incertezze e di paure. La donna vuole credere a suo marito James e alla sua versione dei fatti, ma l’avvocato dell’accusa, la tenace Kate, le racconta una versione molto diversa della storia che inizia molti anni prima, prima che James diventasse l’uomo ricco e potente che è adesso, quando ancora studiava all’università di Oxford, proprio dove si sono conosciuti. Inizia così per Sophie un intricato approdo alla verità, ma il sentiero per arrivarci sarà ricco di ostacoli e la posta in gioco, oltre alla sua famiglia, sarà addirittura la vita stessa.

You'll have the baby monitor and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour. Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She's gone. You've never had to call the police before.

Abstract: Renée Ballard works the night shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing none as each morning she turns her cases over to day shift detectives. A once up-and-coming detective, she’s been given this beat as punishment after filing a sexual harassment complaint against a supervisor.

Ballard is determined not to give up at dawn. Against orders and her own partner’s wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. As the cases entwine they pull her closer to her own demons and the reason she won’t give up her job no matter what the department throws at her.

Abstract: Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat ... but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher’s one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness.

La bambina scomparsa / David Bell ; traduzione di Chiara Baffa

Firenze : Giunti, 2016

Originals

Abstract: La vita di Tom e Abby Stuart viene tragicamente sconvolta dalla misteriosa scomparsa della figlia dodicenne Caitlin. Ogni ricerca si rivela inutile e l’angoscia e il senso di colpa finiscono per distruggere il loro matrimonio. La bambina scomparsa è il nuovo romanzo thriller di David Bell: inesorabile e inquitante, pieno di suspense e colpi di scena. Quattro anni dopo, quando ormai ogni speranza sembra perduta, Caitlin ricompare all’improvviso: sporca e scarmigliata, ma sorprendentemente calma e per niente disposta a parlare di quello che le è accaduto. Quando la polizia arresta un uomo sospettato di essere coinvolto nel suo rapimento, la reazione della ragazzina lascia i genitori completamente spiazzati. Perché Caitlin rifiuta con fermezza di testimoniare contro quell’uomo? Cosa è successo veramente tra loro in quegli anni? E perché ha un atteggiamento così glaciale? A Tom restano solo due alternative: lasciare che il colpevole la faccia franca o tentare di scoprire da solo la verità.

Abstract: LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH Nothing is more important to private investigator Sean Rogan than his relationship with FBI trainee Lucy Kincaid. But when his past catches up with him, Sean faces an ultimatum: clear his name and help the FBI take down a rogue agent, or go to prison and lose everything he holds dear. With only Agent Noah Armstrong as his back-up and forced to keep Lucy in the dark, Sean steps back into his old world. But the longer he’s undercover, the more dangerous the game becomes. More than Sean’s future with Lucy is at stake—so is his life. OR DIE TRYING… Lucy can’t imagine Sean would keep secrets from her—until an FBI agent casts doubt about who he really is…and who he used to be. Why did Sean quit his job with his brother and move to New York? Why hasn’t he told her anything about his new job? With more questions than answers, Lucy doesn’t know who to believe or who she can trust. All she knows is that Sean is in grave danger, and this time, it’s personal.

Abstract: IN THE GAME OF CRIME A new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Lucy Kincaid has already seen more than her share of murder and mayhem. Still reeling from the sex-crime case that sealed her reputation, she’s found a true friend and mentor in Agent Tony Presidio. No matter what goes down at the Bureau, Tony’s got her back—until he’s called to New York to help investigate the murder of a reporter with ties to Lucy. NEVER PLAY THE VICTIM But the reporter may not be the first victim of a patient killer with a penchant for revenge, and she’s definitely not the last. Connections between closed cases, a missing person, and Tony himself lead Lucy to fear for those she cares for most. When the FBI is rocked by the death of one of their own, Lucy seeks the help of her boyfriend, private investigator Sean Rogan, to help put together the puzzle—and puts her career in jeopardy. But the harder she pushes for answers, the clearer the truth becomes: There’s a killer inside Quantico. Watching her every move. Waiting to kill again…

New York : Ballantine Books, 2011

Abstract: Aspiring FBI agent Lucy Kincaid and her P.I. boyfriend, Sean Rogan, are heading to the Adirondack Mountains for a pleasant romantic getaway when they detour to help troubled friends, owners of a new resort who are battling malicious vandals. After Lucy and Sean pursue an arsonist into an abandoned mine shaft, Lucy stumbles upon an even more heinous crime—and the perfectly preserved remains of its victim. The only thing more disturbing than the discovery of the corpse is its sudden disappearance. While the local police remain skeptical, Lucy is dead certain that there’s a connection between the sabotage at the resort and the murder—one that the less-than-neighborly citizens of Spruce Lake seem to have a stake in keeping hidden. Then, when a cold-blooded sniper targets Sean and Lucy, FBI agent Noah Armstrong enters the fray to ensure that more bodies don’t hit the ground. Now three outsiders race to untangle a violent conspiracy before they end up like the rest of Spruce Lake’s secrets: dead and buried.
