Il Volo Dell'angelo Di Pietra

"Le parole della O'Connell sono lucide e affilate come un bisturi." (Carlo Lucarelli)

A volte la violenza esplode quando e dove meno te l'aspetti. Come a Dayborn, graziosa cittadina sprofondata nella calda, languida atmosfera della Louisiana. E' lа che, diciassette anni fa, la dottoressa Cass Shelley и morta sotto i colpi di una folla inferocita, lapidata senza pietа per una colpa immaginaria. Da allora, tutti a Dayborn hanno fatto del loro meglio per dimenticare. Tutti tranne Tom Jessop, lo sceriffo che da quasi vent'anni si interroga sul destino della piccola Kathy Shelley, scomparsa subito dopo l'omicidio della madre. Quella bambina oggi и una donna, a tutti nota con il nome di Kathy Mallory, detective della Crimini Speciali di New York. Messo da parte il distintivo e la sua nuova vita, Kathy torna a Dayborn decisa a ottenere non semplice giustizia, ma 'vendetta'. Per stanare gli assassini di sua madre deve affrontare un'indagine intricata e rischiosa, ai margini della legalitа. Solo quando la veritа verrа a galla in tutto il suo orrore, Cass Shelley potrа riposare in pace nella tomba vegliata dall'angelo di pietra.

"Una O'Connell in splendida forma per un thriller da non perdere." (Booklist)

"Ancora una volta Carol O'Connell avvince il lettore fino all'ultima pagina." (Publishers Weekly)

Присяжные обречены

– Я убила нас обоих. Другого выхода не было. – Джоанна сидела тихо, смиряясь с последними минутами жизни Тимоти Кида, переживая их вместе с ним. Еще какое-то время она могла дышать, жить.

Чем больше Иэн Зэкери дергался, тем быстрее умирал. Красное пятно от вина расползалось по дивану, точно кровь Тимоти. Она не готовила подобную картину осуществления правосудия.

…Джоанна осталась одна.

После вынесения оправдательного вердикта присяжные один за другим умирают насильственной смертью. На месте преступления убийца оставляет на стене кровавый знак: изображение косы. Нью-йоркская радиостанция в популярной передаче проводит собственное расследование. Но детектив Особого отдела Кэти Мэллори считает, что это опасная и нездоровая игра.

Фатальный триллер Кэрол О'Коннелл «Присяжные обречены» – впервые на русском.

Bone by Bone

A stunning stand-alone novel from the national-bestselling author who 'has raised the standard for psychological thrillers' (Chicago Tribune).

Carol O'Connell's most recent Mallory novel, Find Me, was one of the most highly praised suspense novels of the year. 'A terrific find: a tightly wrapped, expert combination of suspense, mystery and show-stopping character' (Janet Maslin of The New York Times); 'yet another example of the spot-on talents of one of America 's finest writers of mysteries' (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). In Bone by Bone, however, she may have written her most unforgettable novel yet.

In the northern California town of Coventry, two teenage brothers go into the woods one day, but only one comes back. No one knows what happened to the younger brother, Josh, until twenty years later, when the older brother, Oren, now an ex-investigator for the Army CID, returns to Coventry for the first time in many years. His first morning back, he hears a thump on the front porch. Lying in front of the door is a human jawbone, the teeth still intact. And it is not the first such object, his father tells him. Other remains have been left there as well. Josh is coming home… bone by bone.

Using all his investigative skills, Oren sets out to solve the mystery of his brother's murder, but Coventry is a town full of secrets and secret-keepers: the housekeeper with the fugitive past, the deputy with the old grudge, the reclusive ex-cop from L.A., the woman with the title of town monster, and, not least of all, Oren himself. But the greatest secret of all belonged to his brother, and it is only by unraveling it that Oren can begin to discover the truth that has haunted them all for twenty years.

Written with the rich prose, resonant characters, and knife-edge suspense that have won the author so many fans, Bone by Bone is further proof that 'O'Connell is one of the most poetic yet tough-minded writers of the genre' (San Francisco Chronicle).

The past comes back to haunt, in the new novel featuring Kathleen Mallory – “the strongest new detective of the decade” (Kirkus Reviews).

Carol O’Connell’s novels continue to draw extraordinary praise for her “unforgettable protagonist” (The Miami Herald), “thoroughly original characters” (People), “gifted storytelling” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), and “prose so stunning it takes your breath away” (Mostly Murder), all combining to produce some of the “most stylishly innovative and witty mysteries in years” (San Francisco Chronicle).

At their heart is NYPD sergeant Kathleen Mallory, a wild child turned policewoman possessed of a ferocious intelligence and a unique inner compass of right and wrong – which has drawn her now to a place far from home.

In a small town in Louisiana, Mallory steps off a train. Within an hour, one man has been assaulted, another has had a heart attack, a third has been murdered, and Mallory is in jail, although she has had nothing to do with any of these events. She is there for an entirely different purpose.

Seventeen years ago, Mallory’s mother died in this town, stoned to death by a mob, and the six-year-old Mallory vanished, to reappear later on the streets of New York. Now she has returned to find out who killed her mother, and what happened to the body, vanished as well, its only trace a winged angel in the local cemetery. Her search will take her through a dark and murky past, and into the company of people who have much to warn her about and even more to hide, but for Mallory there is no stopping – even if what she discovers is something better left buried in the grave.

Filled with the rich prose, resonant characters, and knife-edge suspense that have won her so many admirers, Stone Angel is Carol O’Connell’s most remarkable novel yet.

Carol O’Connell is also the author of Mallory’s Oracle, The Man Who Cast Two Shadows, and Killing Critics. She lives in New York City.
