Explanation of the Book:

In A.D. 664, King Oswy of Northumbria has convened a synod at Whitby to hear debate between the Roman and Celtic Christian churches and decide which shall be granted primacy in his kingdom. At stake is much more than a few disputed points of ritual; Oswy's decision could affect the survival of either church in the Saxon kingdoms. When the Abbess Etain, a leading speaker for the Celtic church, is found murdered, suspicion falls upon the Roman faction. In order to diffuse the tensions that threaten to erupt into civil war, Oswy turns to Sister Fidelma of the Celtic Church (Irish and an advocate for the Brehon Court) and Brother Eadulf of the Roman church (from east Anglia and of a family of hereditary magistrates) to find the killer. But as further murders occur and a treasonous plot against Oswy matures, Fidelma and Eadulf soon find themselves running out of time.

Explanation of the Book:

In the third book of the legendary Revelation Space trilogy, the last remnants of humanity realize that forging an alliance with a greater and even more mysterious alien force may be their only chance for survival. The Inhibitors were designed to eliminate any life form reaching a certain level of intelligence -- and they've targeted Humanity. War veteran Clavain and a ragtag group of refugees have fled into hiding. Their leadership is faltering, and their situation is growing more desperate. But their little colony has just received an unexpected visitor: an avenging angel with the power to lead mankind to safety -- or draw down its darkest enemy. And as she leads them to an apparently insignificant moon light-years away, it begins to dawn on Clavain and his companions that to beat one enemy, it may be necessary to forge an alliance with something much worse . . . "Absolution Gap is a good as it gets, and should solidify Alastair Reynolds' reputation as one of the best hard SF writers in the field." -- SF Site

Explanation of the Book:

In this stunning literary debut, Patrick Flanery delivers a devastating and intimate portrait of post-apartheid South Africa, and the perils of taking sides when the sides are changing around you. Told in shifting perspectives, Absolution is centred on the mysterious character of Clare Wald, a controversial writer of great fame, haunted by the memories of a sister she fears she betrayed to her death and a daughter she fears she abandoned. Clare comes to learn that in this conflict the dead do not stay buried, and the missing return in other forms--such as the small child present in her daughter's last days who has reappeared, posing as Clare's official biographer. Sam Leroux, a South African expatriate returning to Cape Town after many years in New York, gradually earns Clare's trust, his own ghosts emerging from the histories that he and Clare begin to unravel, leading them both along a path in search of reconciliation and forgiveness.

Explanation of the Book:

Hope County, Montana. Land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as The Church of Eden’s Gate that has slowly been infiltrating the residents’ daily lives in the past years. Mary May Fairgrave, a local barkeep, has lost almost everything to the Church: her parents died in suspicious conditions and her brother, entranced by the cult leader’s charismatic words, has vanished. When the authorities refuse to investigate further, she decides to take matters in to her own hands. Local hunter William Boyd was saved by Eden’s Gate years ago, during the darkest moments of his life. When his duties lead him to cross paths with Mary May, the daughter of one of his old friends, he soon discovers that what is happening in the county is far from what he believed. Up against an omniscient and dangerous adversary, Mary May stands little chance. But the unexpected intervention of William Boyd will change her journey — as well as his.

Explanation of the Book:

L'Islandais Peter Peterson, émigré jeune aux Etats-Unis pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, arrive à l'automne de sa vie. Après deux mariages malheureux - ses enfants sont " la preuve vivante d'une erreur " - il habite New York dans un luxueux appartement avec pour compagne, domestique et secrétaire dévouée une jeune Cambodgienne, et se définit lui-même comme un capitaine d'industrie et esthète dégénéré. Peter Peterson est torturé par le cauchemar récurrent d'un crime passionnel qu'il aurait commis cinquante ans plus tôt par dépit amoureux, un crime qui a eu une influence décisive sur son existence entière. Sur le tard, il décide d'écrire ses Mémoires, sorte de confession qui relate son enfance paisible dans une famille bourgeoise de Reykjavik, ses années d'étudiant au Danemark sous l'occupation nazie et son impitoyable ascension d'homme d'affaires immigré à New York. Le récit sans indulgence reflète sa paranoïa, son sens de la manipulation, son orgueil, son cynisme insensé et son humour désabusé. Ces Mémoires, rédigés en islandais sont traduits en anglais par un compatriote de Peterson après la mort de ce dernier. Au fil des pages, le traducteur est fasciné par ce personnage hors du commun auquel il s'identifie en l'imprégnant de sa propre sensibilité, et dont " le petit crime " sera révélé par un incroyable coup de théâtre. Absolution est une brillante anatomie de l'obsession du désir et de l'illusion.

Explanation of the Book:

When Alan Kirkland went in search of a mysterious uncle, a James Kirkland, a man he never knew, a man disowned by his own family for some unknown reason, what he finally unearthed made him wish he had left the mystery buried. The story unfolds in the present but the roots of it lay buried somewhere back in the time of The Great War. By researching old police reports and newspaper articles, Alan discovered that not only was his uncle an army deserter, but he also stood accused of murdering two young women, one of those women being the wife of Major Ethan Kightingale, a prominent member of society. But James Kirkland somehow avoided arrest and was never put on trial, consequently his version of events went with him to his grave. Undeterred, refusing to surrender his search, it finally paid off for Alan Kirkland. He found that one remaining link to the past was still alive. Old and feeble, Cecilia Knightingale, a central player in the longago drama, held the key to the puzzle. But her family had its own dark past to shelter, and she would shelter it until the end.

Explanation of the Book:

From the author of the #1 international bestseller The Abomination The no-holds-barred conclusion to Jonathan Holt’s revolutionary Carnivia Trilogy (preceded by The Abomination and The Abduction), The Absolution follows Venetian police captain Kat Tapo and U.S. Army intelligence analyst Holly Boland on their most dangerous and disturbing journey yet On Venice’s crowded Lido beach, a man is found lying half in and half out of the sea with his throat cut open and his tongue torn out by the roots. On his face is a curious antique mask. Kat Tapo of the Venice Carabinieri is pleased to be running her first murder investigation. But when she learns that the mask is a piece of Masonic paraphernalia known as a “hoodwink,” she starts to wonder if she’s been put in charge because, as a woman, she’s unable to penetrate the closed world of Italian freemasonry. The dead man turns out to be a senior partner in a small Catholic bank, currently engaged in negotiations with one of Italy’s richest men. But Kat soon discovers that money isn't the only motive for murder. Meanwhile, intelligence analyst Second Lieutenant Holly Boland has found a document among her father’s belongings that indicates a Cold War cover-up. As she tracks down exactly what he knew, she is forced to ask herself: was her father prepared to become a whistleblower? And was he silenced for it? And reclusive genius Daniele Barbo, owner of anonymous website Carnivia.com, has discovered that his site has been contaminated by a virus—one that will unleash a wave of destruction across Italy unless he can break his own encryption and prevent an atrocity from taking place. As the three of them join together to track down the truth, they discover a powerful conspiracy involving the security services, the Church, and the CIA—a conspiracy with roots stretching back many decades. Nobody involved will surrender without a fight . . . PRAISE FOR THE CARNIVIA TRILOGY “A genuinely thrilling thriller. . . . A terrific book by any standard. . . .

Explanation of the Book:

You will soon notice why this book has brought swift and glaring criticism from the law enforcement and psychological fields; as it allows the reader a killers first hand view; unlike anything you have ever experienced, or may ever wish to experience again. Every volume written about repetitive killers has never fully answered the reason why. They give psychological opinions and text book retort; a clinical definition as to one ́s mental health, but it is not science that defines humanity, only the status quo. From the first to the last page you will take a passage toward one of the most profound views of the thoughts and realities as to how a killer thinks; his truths; his idealistic perceptions of the world we share... insights you will never see otherwise. As one reader stated, "At first I wanted to get into his head and see what he sees; now all I want is for him to get out."
