Book Summary:

It all began one Sunday afternoon around three years ago. At home by myself, I was lounging on the couch and zapping idly across TV, young and carefree and looking for my kicks. Suddenly, I fell onto the start of an episode of Columbo. It drew me in and I watched it to the end, and after that I'd try and catch another episode whenever I could. Hi-tech procedural cop shows like CSI Wherever never appealed to me, but Columbo's top-drawer plots, writing and characters, plus a dazzling first episode directed by a certain young S. Spielberg, got me hooked. Betweentimes, lesser but no less entertaining detective shows like The Mentalist and Castle scratched the itch.

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This vibrant, tender, and moving tale pulses with the excitement of New York City, as Danielle Steel explores twists of fate, and the way that sometimes, in special places, friends can be the family we need most. They come together by chance in the heart of New York City, four young women at turning points in their lives. Claire Kelly finds the walk-up apartment—a spacious loft in Hell’s Kitchen. But the aspiring shoe designer needs at least one roommate to manage it. She meets Abby Williams, a writer trying to make it on her own, far away from her successful family in L.A. Four years later, Morgan Shelby joins them. She’s ambitious, with a serious finance job on Wall Street. Then Sasha Hartman, a medical student whose identical twin sister is a headline-grabbing supermodel. And so the sprawling space, with its exposed brick and rich natural light, becomes a home to friends about to embark on new, exhilarating adventures. Frustrated by her ultra-conservative boss, Claire soon faces a career crisis as a designer. Abby is under the spell of an older man, an off-off-Broadway producer who exploits her and detours her from her true talent as a novelist, while destroying her self-confidence. Morgan is happily in love with a successful restaurateur who supplies her roommates with fine food. At her office, she begins to suspect something is off about her boss, a legendary investment manager whom she’s always admired. But does she even know him? And Sasha begins an all-work-no-play residency as an OB/GYN, as her glamorous jet-set sister makes increasingly risky decisions. Their shared life in the apartment grounds them as they bring one another comfort and become a family of beloved friends. Unexpected opportunities alter the course of each of their lives, and as they meet the challenges, they face the bittersweet reality that in time, they will inevitably move away from the place where their dreams began.

Deeply stressed by an SEC investigation and by his three-year-old son’s diagnosis of autism, he flees New York on a Greyhound bus in search of a simpler, more romantic life with his old college sweetheart. Meanwhile, his super-smart wife, Seema—a driven first-generation American who craved the picture-perfect life that comes with wealth—has her own demons to face. How these two flawed characters navigate the Shteyngartian chaos of their own making is at the heart of this piercing exploration, a poignant tale of familial longing and an unsentimental ode to America.

[It is] a novel so pungent, so frisky and so intent on probing the dissonances and delusions—both individual and collective—that grip this strange land getting stranger.”—The New York Times Book Review “Shteyngart, perhaps more than any American writer of his generation, is a natural. He is light, stinging, insolent and melancholy. . . . The wit and the immigrant’s sense of heartbreak—he was born in Russia—just seem to pour from him. The idea of riding along behind Shteyngart as he glides across America in the early age of Trump is a propitious one. He doesn’t disappoint.”—The New York Times

Book Summary:

“A haunting story of fragile female identity, sexually gained, violently lost” by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Sexual Life of Catherine M. (The New York Times Book Review). Catherine Millet’s erotic memoir The Sexual Life of Catherine M. was a landmark book—a portrait of a sexual life lived without boundaries and without a safety net. Described as “eloquent, graphic—and sometimes even poignant” by Newsweek, and as “[perhaps] one of the most erotic books ever written” by Playboy, it drew international attention for its audacity and the apparently superhuman sangfroid required of Millet and her partner, Jacques Henric, with whom she had an extremely public and active open relationship. Now, Millet’s follow-up answers the first book’s implicit question: How did you avoid jealousy? “I had love at home,” Millet explains, “I sought only pleasure in the world outside.” But one day, she discovered a letter in their apartment that made it clear that Jacques was seriously involved with someone else. Jealousy details the crisis provoked by this discovery and Millet’s attempts to reconcile her need for freedom and sexual liberation with the very real heartache caused by Jacques’s infidelity. Jealousy delves into the world of emotion as evocatively as The Sexual Life of Catherine M. delves into the realm of the senses. Here is the paradoxical confession of a libertine who discovers that love, in any of its forms, can have a dark side. “An honest, brutal piece of confession and self-analysis.” —The Guardian

The best debut mystery I've read in a long time."—Tana French “A really gutsy, clever, energetic read, often unexpected, always entertaining. I loved Janie Jenkins’s sassy voice and Elizabeth Little’s too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air.” —Kate Atkinson, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life A sensational debut thriller featuring an unforgettable heroine who just might have murdered her mother Former “It Girl” Janie Jenkins is sly, stunning, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, at the height of her fame, she was incarcerated for the murder of her mother, a high-society beauty known for her good works and rich husbands. Now, released on a technicality, Janie makes herself over and goes undercover, determined to chase down the one lead she has on her mother’s killer. The only problem? Janie doesn’t know if she’s the killer she’s looking for. Janie makes her way to an isolated South Dakota town whose mysteries rival her own. Enlisting the help of some new friends (and the town’s wary police chief), Janie follows a series of clues—an old photograph, an abandoned house, a forgotten diary—and begins to piece together her mother’s seemingly improbable connection to the town. When new evidence from Janie’s own past surfaces, she’s forced to consider the possibility that she and her mother were more alike than either of them would ever have imagined. As she digs tantalizingly deeper, and as suspicious locals begin to see through her increasingly fragile facade, Janie discovers that even the sleepiest towns hide sinister secrets—and will stop at nothing to guard them. On the run from the press, the police, and maybe even a murderer, Janie must choose between the anonymity she craves and the truth she so desperately needs. A gripping, electrifying debut novel with an ingenious and like-it-or-not sexy protagonist, Dear Daughter follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died—whatever the cost.

Book Summary:

Autor do fenômeno literário mundial A verdade sobre o caso Harry Quebert, Joël Dicker retorna com um mistério ambientado na Suíça Em uma noite de dezembro, o sofisticado hotel Palace de Verbier, nos Alpes Suíços, é palco de um assassinato sem solução, já que a investigação do crime nunca é concluída pela polícia. Anos depois, o escritor Joël decide tirar alguns dias de férias e se hospeda nesse mesmo local. Lá, uma surpresa o aguarda: seu quarto é o 621 bis, a nova nomenclatura do agora estigmatizado 622, e a curiosidade o leva a mergulhar em uma investigação sobre o caso emblemático. Ao longo da corrida para descobrir as motivações para o assassinato, somos apresentados a uma gama de personagens tão interessantes quanto pitorescos em um cenário aparentemente tranquilo e acolhedor: uma aristocrata russa decadente que sonha em casar as filhas com homens ricos, um grupo de banqueiros e um jovem ambicioso e talentoso que causa inveja e intriga entre os herdeiros que disputam a presidência de uma instituição financeira familiar. Com a precisão de um mestre relojoeiro suíço, Joël Dicker nos leva ao coração de sua cidade natal, Genebra, neste romance intrincado e surpreendente, em meio a triângulos amorosos, jogos de poder, golpes, traições e ciúmes. Uma mistura inteligente de mistério e comédia de costumes, O enigma do quarto 622 dá continuidade à obra eletrizante de um dos autores mais aclamados do romance policial.

Cu precizia unui ceasornicar elvețian, Joël Dicker își duce cititorii în inima orașului său natal, de-a lungul unui roman diabolic și imprevizibil, cu un triunghi amoros, jocuri de putere, lovituri sub centură, trădări și gelozii, într-o Elveție care nu este chiar atât de liniștită cum pare. „Capitolele defilează rapid, ca episoadele dintr-un serial, ritmate de dialoguri viguroase, scene vizuale clare sau difuze. Legături secrete, întâlniri ratate, lovituri de teatru, înșelătorii și vieți paralele… Melodrama se transformă în thriller. Cititorul este, pe rând, păcălit, hărțuit și captivat." – Figaro „Dicker dă dovadă de o plăcere profundă și intensă de a scrie, care înflorește peste tot. O malițiozitate subliminală aruncă sclipiri asupra întregului ansamblu și învăluie unele dintre personaje." – Le Parisien „Ca în toate romanele lui Joël Dicker, intriga te prinde încă de la primele rânduri. Pe parcursul anchetei bogate în lovituri de teatru, aștepți înfrigurat să afli identitatea victimei, numele ucigașului și, mai ales, motivele." – Cosmopolitan
