Parmi « ses trois femmes » -Juliette, Germaine et Nine -, laquelle est la meurtrière ? A moins que ce soit Roger, son fils, qui vit d'expédients et lui emprunte souvent de l'argent ?

The burning room / Michael Connelly

London : Orion, 2014

Abstract: In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet ten years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but any other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and his new partner, rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case. Starting with the bullet that's been lodged for years in the victim's spine, they must pull new leads from years-old information, which soon reveals that this shooting may have been anything but random.

Flesh and blood / Patricia Cornwell

London : Harper Collins, 2014

Abstract: No.1 bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the next enthralling thriller in her high-stakes series starring Kay Scarpetta-a complex tale involving a serial sniper who strikes chillingly close to the forensic sleuth herself. It's Dr. Kay Scarpetta's birthday and she's about to head to Miami for a vacation with her FBI profiler husband Benton Wesley when she notices seven pennies on a wall behind their Cambridge house. Is this a kids' game? If so, why are all of the coins dated 1981 and so shiny it's as if they're newly minted? Her cellphone rings, and Detective Pete Marino tells her there's been a homicide five minutes away. A high school music teacher has been shot with shocking precision as he unloaded groceries from his car. No one heard or saw a thing. It's as if God did it. In this 22nd Scarpetta novel, the master forensic sleuth finds herself in the middle of a nightmarish pursuit of a serial sniper who seems to leave no evidence except fragments of copper. The shots are so perfect, they cause instant death and seem impossible, and the death scenes aren't crime scenes because the killer was never within hundreds of yards of the victims. The victims seem to have nothing in common, and there is no pattern that might indicate where the Copperhead will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, and then into the murky depths off the coast of South Florida, where Scarpetta dives a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. There she must face an unthinkable truth that points in the direction of her techno genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta's own flesh and blood.

Who are the saints and who the sinners? And can the one ever become the other?

Robert Ludlum's The Bourne retribution : a new Jason Bourne novel / by Eric Van Lustbader

London : Orion, 2014

Abstract: Bourne's friend Eli Yadin, head of Mossad, learns that Ouyang Jidan, a senior member of China's Politburo, and a major Mexican drug lord may have been trafficking in something far more deadly than drugs. Yadin convinces Bourne to investigate. Bourne agrees, but only because he has a personal agenda: Ouyang Jidan is the man who ordered Rebeka - one of the only people Bourne has ever truly cared about - murdered. Bourne is determined to avenge her death, but in the process he becomes enmeshed in a monstrous world-wide scheme involving the Chinese, Mexicans, and Russians. Bourne's increasingly desperate search for Ouyang takes him from Tel Aviv, to Shanghai, Mexico City, and, ultimately, a village on China's coast where a clever trap has been laid for him. Bourne finds himself pursued on all sides and unsure whom he can trust. As he moves closer to Ouyang, closer to avenging the woman he loved, he also moves ever closer to his own death...

Abrahams, Jim

Hot shots! 2 / regia di Jim Abrahams

Milano : Twentieth century Fox home entertainment, 2001

Abstract: Un dittatorello mediorientale tiene prigionieri tre soldati americani. Ben tre missioni di salvataggio falliscono. Soltanto Topper Harley può riuscire là dove tanti valorosi non sono riusciti e Topper decide di intervenire dopo che anche il colonnello Denton Walters è finito nelle mani del nemico. Ne succedono di tutti i colori, naturalmente, ma alla fine i nostri tornano a casa sani e salvi. Il segreto di Jim Abrahams è quello di non cercare di "rinnovarsi", né il suo forte sono le strizzate d'occhio "intelligenti". Il suo cinema è demenzialità allo stato puro, che punta dritto alla prevedibilità più plateale e perciò più efficace. Imitarlo è impossibile.
