Rob Roy / Walter Scott

Milano : StreetLib, stampa 2020

Résumé: No introduction can be more appropriate to the work than some account of the singular character whose name is given to the title-page, and who, through good report and bad report, has maintained a wonderful degree of importance in popular recollection. This cannot be ascribed to the distinction of his birth, which, though that of a gentleman, had in it nothing of high destination, and gave him little right to command in his clan. Neither, though he lived a busy, restless, and enterprising life, were his feats equal to those of other freebooters, who have been less distinguished. He owed his fame in a great measure to his residing on the very verge of the Highlands, and playing such pranks in the beginning of the 18th century, as are usually ascribed to Robin Hood in the middle ages,-and that within forty miles of Glasgow, a great commercial city, the seat of a learned university. Thus a character like his, blending the wild virtues, the subtle policy, and unrestrained license of an American Indian, was flourishing in Scotland during the Augustan age of Queen Anne and George I. Addison, it is probable, or Pope, would have been considerably surprised if they had known that there existed in the same island with them a personage of Rob Roy's peculiar habits and profession.

Il problema insolubile = The insoluble problem / Gilbert Keith Chesterton ; traduzione di Giulio Mainardi

Milano : Leone, copyr. 2020

I leoncini - La collezione del leone ; 119

Résumé: In una locanda fuori mano nei boschi, padre Brown si trova a indagare su un caso bizzarrissimo: un anziano è stato trafitto con un'antica spada e insieme impiccato a un albero. Tutti volevano bene alla vittima e tutti hanno un alibi per questo delitto fantastico. Ma c'è un mistero ancora più grande: il vecchio era semiparalizzato e costretto a letto, eppure sembra che nei suoi ultimi momenti abbia mostrato un'incredibile e quasi sovrumana vitalità...

Mallock

The faces of God ; translated from the French by Tina Kover

New York : Europa, 2014

World noir

Résumé: Murder and depravity are Police Commissioner Amédée Mallock’s daily bread. As far as he is concerned, mankind has been thoroughly abandoned by God, and the visions that haunt him do nothing to disabuse him of this notion. But nothing he has encountered has prepared him for the sudden appearance of a serial killer dubbed “the Makeup Artist.” The bodies of the killer’s first victims, found in four separate neighborhoods of Paris, are monstrous works of art, baroque masterpieces of depravity, demented expressions of corrupted piety. These crimes are unprecedented in their ferocity and their intricacy, and the deeper Mallock investigates the greater the mysteries and the enigmas. There seems to be no tenable solution to this series of crimes behind which the devil himself seems to lurk. A supernatural and theological thriller, The Faces of God is superior fiction for fans of the TV series True Detective and of novels by writers such as Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, and Dean Koontz. Jean-Denis Bruet-Ferreol, who writes under the pseudonym Mallock, was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1951. He is an author, painter, photographer, designer, inventor, artistic director, and composer. Since 2000, he has dedicated himself to digital painting and crime novels.
