La femme du Kilimandjaro / Marianne et Arnaud Buffin-Parry

Les Houches : Éditions du Mont-Blanc, 2020

Mont-Blanc noir

Résumé: Une enquête qui prend racine à la source de la vie. Simon Legrand, pédiatre solitaire et mélancolique, vit exilé au Vietnam. Il est confronté à l'émergence d'une nouvelle maladie incurable apparue aux quatre coins du monde. Il est d'autant plus concerné, que sa femme Maïssa Diallo rencontrée quelques années plus tôt au Burkina Faso, en est décédée. Simon est en outre la proie d'un rêve qui le conduit à vivre et revivre un drame survenu en haute montagne lors de l'ascension d'un couloir glacé, en compagnie de son frère. Pourtant il n'a jamais eu de frère. Anna Mestrallet travaille dans un laboratoire de recherche situé dans les Alpes françaises. La vie de cette scientifique révoltée bascule lorsqu'elle découvre dans une carotte glaciaire provenant du Kilimandjaro, un fragment d'os humain datant de 11 000 ans, car l'ADN de ce fragment osseux se trouve être celui de Maïssa Diallo. La femme du Kilimandjaro est une enquête menée par Anna et Simon bien que tout les sépare et que rien ne les prédestinait à se rencontrer. La résolution de cette énigme improbable les plongera au sein des unités de recherche scientifique, au coeur des effets induits par le réchauffement climatique mais aussi dans l'univers de la division cellulaire, aux sources même de la vie. C'est une véritable quête identitaire qui les attend, autour de la question du double et de la gémellité. La haute montagne, les immensités blanches de l'Inlandsis au Groenland, les chaleurs torrides du sahel au Burkina Faso, les relents d'essence que les motos d'Hanoï crachent nuit et jour, et puis Paris, Berlin et enfin Chambéry, petite ville des Alpes, constituent le décor de cette fiction. En toile de fond, le réchauffement climatique provoque plus que jamais la fonte des glaces et ainsi l'émergence d'un secret parmi les mieux conservés.

[3]: La fabrique de la terreur / Frédéric Paulin

Villenave d'Ornon : Agullo, 2020

Agullo noir

Fait partie de: Paulin, Frédéric. Benlazar / Frédéric Paulin

Résumé: " Cette nuit, il y aura des affrontements, il y aura des blessés et des morts. Il y aura la volonté farouche d'un peuple de mettre à bas ses dirigeants. " Janvier 2011 : après l'immolation de Mohamed Bouazizi, jeune marchand ambulant poussé au désespoir par la misère et l'arbitraire, le peuple tunisien se soulève et " dégage " Ben Ali. C'est le début des " printemps arabes ", et Vanessa Benlazar, grand reporter, est aux premières loges. Derrière la liesse populaire, la jeune Française pressent que cette révolution court le risque d'être noyautée par les islamistes, toujours prompts à profiter d'un vide du pouvoir. Bientôt, la chute de Khadafi, la guerre civile en Syrie et le chaos qui s'installe dans tout le Levant lui donnent raison : un nouveau groupe semble émerger peu à peu des décombres, venu d'Irak pour instaurer un califat dans la région ; un groupe dont la barbarie est sans limite, aux méthodes de recrutement insidieuses et modernes, et qui prône la haine de l'Occident. À Toulouse, justement, Laureline Fell, patronne de l'antenne locale de la DCRI tout juste créée par Sarkozy, s'intéresse à un certain Merah, soupçonné de liens avec des entreprises terroristes. Mais les récentes réformes du renseignement français ne lui facilitent pas la tâche. Quand le pire advient, Fell comprend que la France n'est pas armée pour affronter ce nouvel ennemi qui retourne ses propres enfants contre leur pays : d'autres jeunes sont prêts à rejoindre l'État islamique, autant de bombes à retardement que Laureline, avec l'aide de Vanessa, va tenter de désamorcer. Avec ce dernier tome, Frédéric Paulin clôt la trilogie Benlazar qui nous mènera de Tunis à Toulouse, de Lunel à Bengazi, dessinant la carte des nouveaux réseaux terroristes qui frapperont Paris en plein cœur au cours de l'année 2015.

The first casualty / Ben Elton

London : Black swan, 2006

Résumé: Flanders, June 1917: a British officer and celebrated poet, is shot dead, killed not by German fire, but while recuperating from shell shock well behind the lines. A young English soldier is arrested and, although he protests his innocence, charged with his murder. Douglas Kingsley is a conscientious objector, previously a detective with the London police, now imprisoned for his beliefs. He is released and sent to France in order to secure a conviction. Forced to conduct his investigations amidst the hell of The Third Battle of Ypres, Kingsley soon discovers that both the evidence and the witnesses he needs are quite literally disappearing into the mud that surrounds him. Ben Elton's tenth novel is a gut-wrenching historical drama which explores some fundamental questions. What is murder? What is justice in the face of unimaginable daily slaughter? And where is the honour in saving a man from the gallows if he is only to be returned to die in a suicidal battle? As the gap between legally-sanctioned and illegal murder becomes evermore blurred, Kingsley quickly learns that the first casualty when war comes is truth.

The black angel / John Connolly

London : Hodder, 2005

Résumé: The Black Angel is not an object. The Black Angel is not a myth. The Black Angel lives. A young woman goes missing from the streets of New York. Those who have taken her believe that nobody cares about her, and that no one will come looking for her. They are wrong. She is 'blood' to the killer Louis, the man who stands at the right hand of private detective Charlie Parker, and Louis will tear apart anyone who stands in the way of his attempts to find her. But as Louis's violent search progresses, Parker comes to realize that the disappearance is part of an older mystery, one that is linked to an ornate church of bones in Eastern Europe, to the slaughter at a French monastery in 1944, and to the quest for a mythical prize that has been sought for centuries by evil men: the Black Angel. Yet the Black Angel is more than a myth. It is conscious. It dreams. It is alive. And men are not the only creatures that seek it ...
