Part love story and part psychological thriller from best-selling author Trevanian, "a tour de force . . . A story that explores meticulously some of the darker corners of the human soul." -- The Washington Post In the quiet Basque countryside in 1914, Jean-Marc Montjean, a handsome young doctor, moves to the small French village of Salies to assist the village physician. It's there that he meets the seductive, beautiful Katya Treville. Jean-Marc is bewitched, driven to know everything about her. But as he and her family become friendly, he realizes they are haunted by an old, dark secret. When Jean-Marc learns that the Trevilles are planning to leave the village forever, he insists on a final meeting with Katya. That meeting and the events that follow turn what was an idyllic romance into an unending nightmare. And when Katya’s secret is revealed, the chilling climax will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. "A most exquisite, elegant, ingenious thriller." -- The New York Daily News

"À l’été de 1914, Jean-Marc Montjean, jeune homme tout juste diplômé, revient s’installer à Sallies, petit village du Pays basque dont il est originaire. Rapidement, il est appelé à soigner Paul Treville dont la jolie sœur jumelle, Katya, l’intrigue de plus en plus. Bien accueilli chez les Treville, le jeune médecin devient un ami de la famille, qu’il fréquente assidûment en dépit d’une certaine ambiguïté dans leurs relations. Et même s’il devine derrière leurs hospitalité et bonnes manières un lourd et douloureux secret, il ne peut s’empêcher de tomber éperdument amoureux de Katya, quelles qu’en soient les conséquences. Auteur mystérieux de best-sellers internationaux, dont La Sanction, adapté au cinéma par Clint Eastwood et l’inoubliable Shibumi, Trevanian a notamment vécu au Pays basque, auquel il rend hommage dans plusieurs de ses romans.

The Main is Montreal’s teeming underworld, where the dark streets echo with cries in a dozen languages, with the quick footsteps of thieves and the whispers of prostitutes. It is a world where violence and brutality are a way of life. To the people of the Main, police lieutenant Claude LaPointe is judge and jury, father confessor and avenging angel. Montreal’s police force has changed over time, but LaPointe has not. His commitment to justice is total, as is his devotion to the Main and its underworld community. But when a cold-blooded murderer invades LaPointe’s territory, he is forced to examine his long-held beliefs and secrets and to confront his own loneliness and mortality. With a cast of unforgettable supporting characters and an unusual and remarkable hero, The Main is another gripping tale of death and danger, of action and mystery, by the incomparable Trevanian.

« Depuis des mois, il entendait à la radio et il voyait à la télévision que des avions allaient bombarder ou tirer des missiles contre des hommes qui n’avaient pas plus envie de périr qu’il n’en avait l’envie lui-même. Mais, évidemment, cela n’était pas du tout comme de voir là, sur la mer, la masse ramassée et hostile du "Porte-Guerre", avec l’escadrille infernale qui devait sommeiller dans la nuit de son ventre. Dressé dans sa révolte, la mâchoire serrée, pour la première fois, Marco murmura : — Détruire le "Porte-Guerre" ! » Le pacifisme dans lequel vivait Marco se fissure peu et peu, et dans l’âme de ce charpentier de marine s’élève une sourde colère contre le pouvoir qu’a l’homme de vouloir dominer autrui et de porter la guerre et la mort en tous lieux. Aidé par Katya, fille du talentueux ingénieur Klevchine, ils mèneront un combat commun contre un porte-avions géant, symbole d’une civilisation moins pacifique et évoluée qu’elle ne le laisse entendre. Situé dans une géographie mondiale sur laquelle plane toujours le spectre de la guerre et de la mort, le roman de Robert Postel s’impose comme une fable humaine et anti-impérialiste. Il résonne comme un appel à la révolte et à l’implication de chacun dans la destinée collective. Une oeuvre où l’engagement se fait impérieux, absolu, jusqu’au-boutiste.

Becky, Harry, and Leon are leaving London in a fourth-hand Ford with a suitcase full of stolen money, in a mess of tangled loyalties and impulses. But can they truly leave the city that's in their bones? Kate Tempest's novel reaches back through time--through tensely quiet dining rooms and crassly loud clubs--to the first time Becky and Harry meet. It sprawls through their lives and those they touch--of their families and friends and faces on the street--revealing intimacies and the moments that make them. And it captures the contemporary struggle of urban life, of young people seeking jobs or juggling jobs, harboring ambitions and making compromises. The Bricks that Built the Houses is an unexpected love story. It's about being young, but being part of something old. It's about how we become ourselves, and how we effect our futures. Rich in character and restless in perspective, driven by ethics and empathy, it asks--and seeks to answer--how best to live with and love one another. *Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

Les femmes, qui arrivaient parfois de nuit, croyaient être près de la côte car le vent y avait un goût de sel et elles sentaient le sable sous leurs pieds. Quand venait le jour, elles voyaient que le camp était construit au bord d’un lac et entouré de forêts. Himmler aimait que ses camps soient dans des lieux d’une grande beauté naturelle, et de préférence dissimulés. Aujourd’hui, le camp est toujours hors de vue ; les horribles crimes qui y ont été commis et le courage des victimes restent largement ignorés. De 1939 à 1945, au camp de Ravensbrück, 132 000 femmes et enfants furent les victimes silencieuses des nazis. Résistantes, Tziganes, Témoins de Jéhova, handicapées, prostituées ou juives, elles étaient pour le Reich des déclassées, des « bouches inutiles ». Parmi elles, 8 000 Françaises dont Germaine Tillion et Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz. Fruit d’un travail d’enquête minutieux à travers le monde à la rencontre des dernières rescapées et des familles des déportées, ce livre exceptionnel redonne la parole à ces femmes, vibrantes héroïnes d’une histoire restée trop longtemps marginale. « SUPERBEMENT DOCUMENTÉ ET TERRIBLEMENT ÉMOUVANT... LE LIVRE DE SARAH HELM, FONDÉ POUR UNE PART SUR LES TÉMOIGNAGES DES SURVIVANTS, EST UN MODÈLE DE SENSIBILITÉ ET DE SÉRIEUX. »Sunday Times

When sixteen copies of a famous Aztec statue arrive in New York, men will die to find out which one is the real thing A small South American republic has decided to capitalize on its national symbol: a prized gold statue of a dancing Aztec priest. The president asks a sculptor to make sixteen copies of it for sale abroad. The sculptor replaces the original with one of his fakes, and ships the real one to New York City for an under-the-table sale to a museum. The statues travel to America spread out among five crates, labeled to ensure that delivery goes as planned. But it doesn’t work. Asked to pick up the crate marked “E” at the airport, delivery man Jerry Manelli, confused by his client’s Spanish accent, takes crate “A” instead. The statue disappears into the city, leading him on a baffling chase, which—if he comes up with the wrong Aztec—could cost him his life.

An unconventional parlor maid upends the lives of an aristocratic family in prewar England Cluny Brown refuses to know her place in society. Last week, she took herself to tea at the Ritz. Then she spent almost an entire day in bed eating oranges. So, to teach her discipline, her uncle, a plumber who has raised the orphaned girl since she was a baby, sends her into service as a parlor maid at one of England’s stately manor houses. At Friars Carmel in Devonshire, Cluny meets her employers: Sir Henry, the quintessential country squire, and Lady Carmel, who oversees the management of her home with unruffled calm. Their son, Andrew, newly returned from abroad with a Polish émigré writer friend, is certain the country is once again on the brink of war. Then there’s Andrew’s beautiful fiancée and the priggish town pharmacist. While everyone around her struggles to keep pace with a rapidly changing world, Cluny continues to be Cluny, transforming those around her with her infectious zest for life. “An entertaining story of England just before the war . . . Top drawer reading.” —Kirkus Reviews
