Le cadavre d'une femme poignardée avec une violence extrême est retrouvé sur les rails, près de la gare du Nord. Ce n'est que la première victime d'une longue liste. A chaque fois, les proies sont des prostituées dont le tueur sème les corps dans différents quartiers populaires de Paris. Des meurtres sordides, sans motif apparent. Le commissaire Kuhn n'a pratiquement aucun indice et l'enquête s'enlise. Jusqu'à ce que le meurtrier fasse en sorte que l'on retrouve sa trace. Il relance ainsi la partie dans un jeu macabre et pervers avec la police. Un jeu de piste infernal au dénouement inattendu... Il assassine sans pitié. Et Paris est devenu son terrain de jeu...

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Nearly twenty years ago, Robin Hobb burst upon the fantasy scene with the first of her acclaimed Farseer novels, Assassin’s Apprentice, which introduced the characters of FitzChivalry Farseer and his uncanny friend the Fool. A watershed moment in modern fantasy, this novel—and those that followed—broke exciting new ground in a beloved genre. Together with George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb helped pave the way for such talented new voices as Scott Lynch, Brandon Sanderson, and Naomi Novik. Over the years, Hobb’s imagination has soared throughout the mythic lands of the Six Duchies in such bestselling series as the Liveship Traders Trilogy and the Rain Wilds Chronicles. But no matter how far she roamed, her heart always remained with Fitz. And now, at last, she has come home, with an astonishing new novel that opens a dark and gripping chapter in the Farseer saga. FitzChivalry—royal bastard and former king’s assassin—has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past . . . and his future. Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one. . . . Praise for Fool’s Assassin “Hobb knows the complicated workings of the wayward human heart, and she takes time to depict them in her tale, to tell her story sweetly, insistently, compellingly. . . . A book meant to be inhabited rather than run through.”—The Seattle Times “[FitzChivalry Farseer is] one of the best characters in fantasy literature.”—Fantasy Book Review “[Hobb’s] prose sparkles, her characters leap off the page.”—Tordotcom “Modern fantasy at its irresistible best.”—The Guardian “Fantastic . . . emotionally rich storytelling.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Rhianne, mind mage and Imperial Princess of Kjall, cannot openly challenge the emperor. Instead she acts in secret to aid the victims of his worst excesses. But now the emperor plans to wed her to the cruel Augustan, the man leading Kjall’s attack against the nation of Mosar. Soon she will be torn from her supporters and shipped overseas, where she can help no one. Mosari crown prince Janto is desperate to save his country from invasion. When one of his most trusted spies disappears while gathering intelligence at the Kjallan palace, Janto takes his place and continues searching for information that could save his people. But falling for the Imperial Princess was not part of his plan. Nor was having his true identity revealed... Now Rhianne must make a choice—follow the path of tradition or the one of the heart, even if it means betraying her own race.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The stunning conclusion to Robin Hobb’s Fitz and the Fool trilogy, which began with Fool’s Assassin and Fool’s Quest “Every new Robin Hobb novel is a cause for celebration. Along with millions of her other fans, I delight in every visit to the Six Duchies, the Rain Wilds, and the Out Islands, and can’t wait to see where she’ll take me next.”—George R. R. Martin More than twenty years ago, the first epic fantasy novel featuring FitzChivalry Farseer and his mysterious, often maddening friend the Fool struck like a bolt of brilliant lightning. Now New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb brings to a momentous close the third trilogy featuring these beloved characters in a novel of unsurpassed artistry that is sure to endure as one of the great masterworks of the genre. Fitz’s young daughter, Bee, has been kidnapped by the Servants, a secret society whose members not only dream of possible futures but use their prophecies to add to their wealth and influence. Bee plays a crucial part in these dreams—but just what part remains uncertain. As Bee is dragged by her sadistic captors across half the world, Fitz and the Fool, believing her dead, embark on a mission of revenge that will take them to the distant island where the Servants reside—a place the Fool once called home and later called prison. It was a hell the Fool escaped, maimed and blinded, swearing never to return. For all his injuries, however, the Fool is not as helpless as he seems. He is a dreamer too, able to shape the future. And though Fitz is no longer the peerless assassin of his youth, he remains a man to be reckoned with—deadly with blades and poison, and adept in Farseer magic. And their goal is simple: to make sure not a single Servant survives their scourge.

A book meant to be inhabited rather than run through.”—The Seattle Times “[Hobb’s] prose sparkles, her characters leap off the page.”—Tor.com “Fantastic . . . emotionally rich storytelling.”—Library Journal (starred review) Fool’s Quest “A complex tapestry of adventure, betrayal, destiny, and unrelenting peril . . . Hobb’s expertise is evident as always.”—Publishers Weekly “Glorious and beautiful storytelling . . . Hobb lets rip with revelations, treachery, vengeance, sword fights and full on magical mayhem.”—SciFiNow “If readers have any doubt that Robin Hobb is one of the finest writers in the fantasy genre, then they haven’t read any of her work.”—SFFWorld

Au cœur des Everglades, en Floride, la découverte d’un cadavre atrocement mutilé ravive de douloureux souvenirs pour l’inspecteur Jake Dilessio : cinq ans plus tôt, sa coéquipière avait trouvé la mort au cours d’une enquête portant sur des crimes similaires. Persuadé jusqu’alors de la culpabilité de Peter Bordon, le chef d’une secte locale, Jake se prend soudain à douter : est-il confronté à un copieur... ou a-t-il envoyé un innocent derrière les barreaux ? Au même moment, une jeune policière, Ashley Montague, s’intéresse au mystérieux accident de voiture qui a failli coûter la vie à l’un de ses amis journalistes. A ses yeux, il est impossible que la drogue soit à l’origine du drame, comme le prétend la police. Mais pour comprendre ce qui s’est passé, elle a besoin d’aide – une aide que seul un inspecteur chevronné comme Dilessio peut lui apporter... Jake et elle l’ignorent encore, mais l’un et l’autre viennent en réalité de s’attaquer à une même affaire. Une affaire aux ramifications bien plus étendues qu’ils ne l’imaginent, et qui pourrait valoir à Ashley de connaître le même sort que l’ancienne coéquipière de Jake... A propos de l'auteur : « Le nom de Heather Graham sur une couverture est une garantie de lecture intense et captivante », a écrit le Literary Times. Son indéniable talent pour le suspense, sa nervosité d’écriture et la variété des genres qu’elle aborde la classent régulièrement dans la liste des meilleures ventes du New York Times.

Je ne tue jamais le lundi. C'est une question d'exigence personnelle et de rythme. Il ne faut y voir ni superstition, ni vieille habitude de célibataire. J'ai toujours préféré les fins de semaine pour réaliser cette partie de mon oeuvre. Laszlo Dumas : pianiste de renom, mais longtemps dit sans génie, sans ardeur, sans ce petit rien qui fait la force des grands. Jusqu'au jour où il se met à faire de fines erreurs volontaires, et à occire celui qui, au premier rang de la salle de concert, les repère. Immédiatement, son jeu devient meilleur et petit à petit, les critiques s'accordent à voir en lui un nouveau virtuose. Ses crimes restent dans l'ombre. Mais un jour il rencontre une femme, Lorraine, qui elle aussi, croit-il, remarque ses erreurs... Un roman construit comme une sonate en contrepoint, entremêlant les voix de Laszlo, de Lorraine et de son fils Arthur. Une haletante méditation sur la solitude du puriste, au suspense élégant et à l'écriture assurée. Jean-Baptiste Destremau a 40 ans. Il joue du piano depuis l'enfance. Sonate de l'Assassin est son premier roman.

Fitz has survived his first hazardous mission as king’s assassin, but is left little more than a cripple. Battered and bitter, he vows to abandon his oath to King Shrewd, remaining in the distant mountains. But love and events of terrible urgency draw him back to the court at Buckkeep, and into the deadly intrigues of the royal family. Renewing their vicious attacks on the coast, the Red-Ship Raiders leave burned-out villages and demented victims in their wake. The kingdom is also under assault from within, as treachery threatens the throne of the ailing king. In this time of great danger, the fate of the kingdom may rest in Fitz’s hands—and his role in its salvation may require the ultimate sacrifice. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Robin Hobb's Assassin's Quest. Praise for Robin Hobb and Royal Assassin “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “[Robin] Hobb continues to revitalize a genre that often seems all too generic, making it new in ways that range from the subtle to the shocking.”—Locus “[Royal Assassin] reaches astonishing new heights. . . . The Farseer saga is destined for greatness—a must-read for every devotee of epic fantasy.”—Sense of Wonder

“Why must pleasure always have a price? And why must one always pay for sensual delight with the loss of original lightness?” Amélie is a young language teacher living in Tokyo. When she succumbs to the attentions of her one and only student—the shy, wealthy, and oh-so-Japanese Rinri—the lovers-to-be find themselves swept along by an affair that is as unusual as it is tender. This is a new kind of love story that pits a woman’s desire for companionship against her strong sense of individual identity. In its exploration of contemporary themes—the confidence of independence, the possibility of love as a form of limitation—Tokyo Fiancée foregoes conventions to create a compelling image of love for the contemporary woman, an anti-Prince-Charming story that is an antidote to traditional romantic fables. The author brings humor, intelligence, and a refreshing honesty to this highly autobiographical work. Her storytelling appeals to those who feel that their own immediate and personal sense of love is seldom adequately represented in popular fiction. This splendid novel offers readers a quietly revolutionary vision of romantic love.
