Explanation of the Book:

ABSOLUTION BY MURDER is the brilliant and evocative first novel in Peter Tremayne's Sister Fidelma series, bringing 7th-century Ireland vividly to life. PRAISE FOR ABSOLUTION BY MURDER: 'In the simultaneously sharp-tongued and full womanly figure of Sister Fidelma, Tremayne has created a heroine whom many readers will willingly follow. Even Brother Cadfael might have tolerated her' Kirkus Reviews As the leading churchmen and women gather at the Synod of Whitby in 664AD to debate the rival merits of the Celtic and Roman Churches, tempers begin to fray. Conspirators plot an assassination, while mysterious, violent death stalks the shadowy cloisters of the Abbey of St Hilda. When the Abbess Etain, a leading speaker for the Celtic Church, is found murdered suspicion inevitably rests on the Roman faction. Attending the Synod is Fidelma, of the community of St Brigid of Kildare. As an advocate of the Brehon Court, she is called on to investigate the murder with Brother Eadulf, of the Roman faction. However, the two are so unlike that their partnership is described as that of a wolf and a fox - but which is which? More gruesome deaths follow and the friction among the clerics could end in civil war. Can the solution to the mysteries avert such a conflict? What readers are saying about ABSOLUTION OF MURDER: 'Superb storytelling from a usually neglected era. Read this and you will certainly want to read the rest of this excellent series' 'I was transported back in time; Peter Tremayne brought the location and characters to life' 'The story moves forward with Fidelma weaving her way through to the end with skill and intelligence. Well worth reading'

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.

Le père Goddard a placé de grands espoirs dans son élève préféré, garçon charmeur et brillant, véritable prodigue du pensionnat. Jusqu'au jour où celui-ci, afin de défier son autorité, détruisit les fondations sur lesquelles le prêtre avait bâti sa confiance. Commence alors une lente et tortueuse descente aux enfers pour le père Goddard, lié par le secret de la confession.

Explanation of the Book:

The official prequel novel to the latest instalment of the Far Cry video game series. 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:

Clare Wade, icône du microcosme littéraire blanc et de gauche de Cape Town, est contactée par Sam Leroux, un jeune universitaire qui souhaite retracer sa carrière dans une biographie. Depuis la fin de l'apartheid, un travail de mémoire est mené pour aider le pays à se reconstruire. C'est le rôle du TRC (Truth and Reconciliation Commission). Parallèlement aux entretiens qu'elle donne à Sam, Clare enquête, grâce aux archives de cette commission, sur la disparition de sa fille, Laura, qui a rejoint la lutte armée en 1989, alors qu'une guérilla sanglante déchirait le pays. Au fil de ses recherches, Clare s'interroge sur les motivations de sa fille, auteure probable d'attentats à la bombe ayant fait de nombreuses victimes, tandis que le travail de Sam dévoile des liens inavouables entre Clare et l'ancien régime d'apartheid. Mais Sam lui-même est loin d'avoir tout dit à Clare sur les événements qui le relient à Laura. Entre ambivalence et faux-semblants, Sam et Clare vont peu à peu s'apprivoiser et revisiter chacun leur passé pour tenter de donner sens aux drames de leurs vies. Si tous les personnages d'Absolution ont en commun des secrets lancinants, tous ont aussi une soif inextinguible de vérité. Sauf que la mémoire est parfois traîtresse, et que la vérité objective n'existe pas. Fascinante prouesse littéraire, ce roman est construit comme une boule à facettes, où différentes versions des mêmes événements révèlent tour à tour un aspect d'une vérité toujours changeante. Qu'il s'agisse de Clare, de Sam, ou de Laura (dont sa mère a conservé le journal intime), chacun n'a accès qu'à un seul versant de l'histoire qui les relie les uns aux autres et que l'auteur nous laisse le soin de recomposer. Multipliant le nombre de sources (carnets, fictions écrites par Clare, interviews, et comptes-rendus de la commission Vérité et Réconciliation), Patrick Flanery construit un récit d'une complexité diabolique dont le sens général s'éclaire au fur et à mesure, pour exploser dans un feu d'artifice de révélations finales. Et comme les protagonistes principaux sont aussi écrivains, la lisière entre l'imaginaire, la fiction et le réel n'en est que plus ténue. Outre cette brillante construction, la force de ce premier roman réside dans la tension dramatique exceptionnelle qui le traverse, à la mesure des enjeux politiques et personnels auxquels les personnages sont confrontés. Entre atmosphère kafkaïenne - quant il s'agit de décrire l'absurdité et la cruauté de la logique totalitaire - et climat d'insécurité permanente - quand la vie quotidienne est sans cesse menacée par la misère environnante -, Absolution épouse les codes du thriller, ménage un suspense infernal et pousse l'angoisse à son paroxysme. Interrogeant à la fois les notions de culpabilité, de bien et de mal, mais aussi les limites de la démocratie et de la liberté pour laquelle certains payent de leur vie, ce récit dévoile toute la complexité de la société sud-africaine contemporaine. Mais au bout du compte, Absolution est un hommage à la littérature, seule capable de relier l'histoire individuelle à l'histoire collective.

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."

Explanation of the Book:

It's 1997, and eight months since vigilante justice-seeker Claymore Straker fled South Africa after his explosive testimony to Desmond Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In Paris, Rania LaTour, Claymore's former lover, comes home to find that her son and her husband, a celebrated human rights lawyer, have disappeared. On an isolated island off the coast of East Africa, the family that Clay has befriended is murdered as he watches. So begins the fourth instalment in the Claymore Straker series, a breakneck journey through the darkest reaches of the human soul, as Clay and Rain fight to uncover the mystery behind the disappearances and murders, and find those responsible. Relentlessly pursued by those who want them dead, they must work together to uncover the truth, and to find a way to survive in a world gone mad. At times brutal, often lyrical, but always gripping, Absolution is a thriller that will leave you breathless and questioning the very basis of how we live and why we love. ‘A trenchant and engaging thriller that unravels this mysterious land in cool, precise sentences' Stav Sherez, Catholic Herald ‘This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places, as well as frequent scenes of violent action, all come alive on the page...' Literary Review ‘Gripping and exciting … the quality of Hardisty's writing and the underlying truth of his plots sets this above many other thrillers' West Australian 'Searing … at times achieves the level of genuine poetry' Publishers Weekly ‘A stormer of a thriller - vividly written, utterly tropical, totally gripping' Peter James ‘Beautifully written, blisteringly authentic, heart-stoppingly tense and unusually moving' Paul Johnston ‘The plot burns through petrol, with multiple twists and turns' Vicky Newham ‘A solid, meaty thriller – Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character' Lee Child ‘A fast-paced action thriller, beautifully written' Tim Marshall, author of Prisoners of Geography
