A Deadly Influence (Abby Mullen Thrillers, 1) by Mike Omer

 

 

From bestselling author Mike Omer comes the first in a new series full of the psychological twists and police procedural turns that his fans have come to know and love.

Lieutenant Abby Mullen is no stranger to crisis. As the hostage negotiation instructor for the NYPD, she deals with worst-case scenarios every day. Nothing fazes her anymore.

That all changes when she gets a call from Eden Fletcher, a fellow survivor of the infamous Wilcox cult. The two haven’t spoken since the night of a tragic, fiery massacre, when their paths diverged. But now Eden needs Abby’s help: someone has kidnapped her son and is demanding a $5 million ransom. As Abby throws herself into the case, she can’t help but wonder why the kidnapper has targeted Eden. But Eden refuses to talk. She’s silent about the relics of their shared past hanging on her walls. About the kidnapper’s possible motives. About what’s happened in the years since she and Abby parted ways.

As the truth closes in, Abby realizes that her past may not be as far behind as she thought…and it’s come home to collect.

Black as Knight (Kenard Chronicles Book 1) by Moriah Jovan

 

 

Newly made English earl Grimme Kyneward must take a noblewoman to wife to keep his lands and his life, but even if he knew how to woo a woman, he doesn’t have time to do it properly. What does a knight do when he has no prospects for a bride, but needs to get one as quickly as possible? He snatches her, of course.

Never mind that Lady Brìghde Fàileach is the wrong bride; she has her own reasons for wanting to marry the first earl who plucks her out of her wedding just before she’s forced to say “I do.” That the earl has a deep and abiding aversion to brunettes is convenient for her, and the fact that he is also in need of a castellain to run his chaotic household is even better.

She is fully aware that a man in need of a noble wife will also be in need of legitimate heirs, but she readily agrees to it, freeing her from her father and fiancé forever, and giving her power to rule his household, which includes all his mistresses and bastard sons.

Grimme has no desire to bed Brìghde, but he must have a legitimate heir. Brìghde has no need to bed Grimme, but she’s absolutely certain she’ll enjoy the experience. And on the journey from her wedding to his lands, Grimme and Brìghde forge a friendship he is certain will last forever …

… but for his ravenous liege who covets everything Grimme loves and will kill to get it.

This is Book 1 in the Kenard Chronicles.

Il bambino intermittente: 1 di Luca Ragagnin (Miraggi)

 

 

Il piccolo Berg vive in una città del Nord con la madre professoressa. Ha molti nomi inventati e da un certo punto in avanti anche una sorella - vera o immaginaria? Ha un padre con un maggiolino giallo a pois rosa che gli insegna i nomi degli alberi e dei funghi. Ha dei nonni di città che gli insegnano l’uso filosofico degli Agnolotti e la contemplazione del meccanismo ha dei nonni di mare che lo accompagnano nella crescita, da una cucina con finestra sul mare e da uno sga- buzzino magico. Berg cresce rimodellando la realtà, in un travaso continuo di immaginazione, e in tal modo at tra- versa l’infanzia, adolescenza e l’età adulta. Da bambino, conosce Man mano il pericolo me- metafisica degli oggetti, inesorabile dei pensieri altrui, gli anni di piombo; da ragazzo - stupito e incredulo - l’amore e il risveglio di un'intera città industriale; da adulto la forza e abbandona, l’affollamento muto e una solitudine che continua a sfrigolare con le sue decine di voci interiori.

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

“You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen
