Codex

Edward lavora per un’importante banca d’affari newyorkese ed è in procinto di essere trasferito a Londra quando la duchessa di Bowmry, importante cliente inglese della banca, gli chiede di valutare alcune proprietà di famiglia. Si tratta di libri antichi, spediti negli Stati Uniti prima della guerra. Tra questi dovrebbe esserci un codice trecentesco che potrebbe contenere preziose rivelazioni che riguardano non solo il passato ma anche il presente. Mentre, con l’aiuto della giovane medievista Margaret, cerca invano il codice, Edward si appassiona a un videogioco che spopola in internet, e che rivela sconcertanti somiglianze con il manoscritto scomparso… Lev Grossman è critico letterario del settimanale “Time”.

Code to Zero

In this classic Cold War thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Ken Follett puts his own electrifying twist on the space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. As the clock counts down to a shocking climax, ”Code to Zero’s split-second suspense proves that . . . [Follett is] still a hell of a storyteller” (Entertainment Weekly). Look out for Ken’s newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

January, 1958—the darkest hour of the Cold War and the early dawn of the space race. On the launch pad at Cape Canaveral sits America’s best hope to catch up with the Russians: the Explorer I satellite. But at the last moment, the launch is delayed due to weather, even though everyone can see it is a perfectly sunny day.

The real reason for the delay rests deep in the mind of a NASA scientist who has awoken that morning to find his memory completely erased. Knowing only that he’s being followed and watched at every turn, he must find the clues to his own identity before he can discover who is responsible. But even more terrible is the dark secret that they want him to forget. A secret that can destroy the Explorer I—and America’s future. . . .

Praise for Code to Zero:

”This spy thriller is Follett at his best.” —People

”Starts off fast and never slows down. . . . Follett creates a rousing story that never flags.” —Chicago Tribune

”Gripping.” —The New York Times

”Flawlessly plotted, tautly told, and suspenseful.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

”A winner . . . a jolting joyride.” —*St. Louis Post-Dispatch *

Code Duello

Section G, the top-secret security unit of United Planets, had a special problem on their hands wit the situation on Firenze. And for that special problem, they gathered together the most unusual squad in Section G’s unusual history. It included:

A research biologist who could bend steel bars like rubber bands.

A middle-aged lady with total total recall.

An interplanetary cowboy whose bullwhip was deadlier than a ray gun.

A brazen young lady acrobat who looked like an eight-year-old kid.

A mild young man who never lost a bet in his life.

And the best pickpocket that ever lived.

But Firenze with its CODE DUELLO was to prove a match for the lot of them!

Clutch of Constables

A classic Ngaio Marsh novel which features blood-curdling murders in the confines of a riverboat, the Zodiac, cruising through Constable country. ‘He looks upon the murders that he did in fact perform as tiresome and regrettable necessities,’ reflected Chief Superintendent Roderick Alleyn on the international crook known as the Jampot’. But it was Alleyn’s wife Troy who knew the Jampot’ best: she had shared close quarters with him on the tiny pleasure steamer Zodiac on a cruise along the peaceful rivers of Constable country’. And it was she who knew something was badly wrong even before Alleyn was called in to solve the two murders on board…

Club Dead

EDITORIAL REVIEW: Sookie’s boyfriend has been very distant-in another state, distant.

But when she finally finds Bill-caught in an act of betrayal-she’s not sure whether to save him…or sharpen some stakes.

The Closer

**The greatest relief pitcher of all time shares his extraordinary story of survival, love, and baseball.**
Mariano Rivera, the man who intimidated thousands of batters merely by opening a bullpen door, began his incredible journey as the son of a poor Panamanian fisherman. When first scouted by the Yankees, he didn’t even own his own glove. He thought he might make a good mechanic. When discovered, he had never flown in an airplane, had never heard of Babe Ruth, spoke no English, and couldn’t imagine Tampa, the city where he was headed to begin a career that would become one of baseball’s most iconic. What he did know: that he loved his family and his then girlfriend, Clara, that he could trust in the Lord to guide him, and that he could throw a baseball exactly where he wanted to, every time.
With astonishing candor, Rivera tells the story of the championships, the bosses (including The Boss), the rivalries, and the struggles of being a Latino baseball player in the United States and of maintaining Christian values in professional athletics. The thirteen-time All-Star discusses his drive to win; the secrets behind his legendary composure; the story of how he discovered his cut fastball; the untold, pitch-by-pitch account of the ninth inning of Game 7 in the 2001 World Series; and why the lowest moment of his career became one of his greatest blessings.
In *The Closer,* Rivera takes readers into the Yankee clubhouse, where his teammates are his brothers. But he also takes us on that jog from the bullpen to the mound, where the game — or the season — rests squarely on his shoulders. We come to understand the laserlike focus that is his hallmark, and how his faith and his family kept his feet firmly on the pitching rubber. Many of the tools he used so consistently and gracefully came from what was inside him for a very long time — his deep passion for life; his enduring commitment to Clara, whom he met in kindergarten; and his innate sense for getting out of a jam.
When Rivera retired, the whole world watched — and cheered. In *The Closer,* we come to an even greater appreciation of a legend built from the ground up.

**’It is a horrorshow story …’**
Fifteen-year-old Alex likes lashings of ultraviolence. He and his gang of friends rob, kill and rape their way through a nightmarish future, until the State puts a stop to his riotous excesses. But what will his re-education mean?

Anthony Burgess was born in Manchester in 1917 and educated at Xaverian College and Manchester University. He spent six years in the British Army before becoming a schoolmaster and colonial education officer in Malaya and Brunei. After the success of his *Malayan Trilogy*, he became a full-time writer in 1959. His books have been published all over the world, and they include *The Complete Enderby*, *Nothing Like the Sun*, *Napoleon Symphony*, *Tremor of Intent*, *Earthly Powers *and *A Dead Man in Deptford*. Anthony Burgess died in London in 1993.

Cloak of War

The day Karl Jager graduated from university with a degree in Spaceship Command he expected a cushy job flying a freighter. He expected the biggest decision to be which whisky to drink. He expected the biggest threat to be the redhead in the orbital bar.
Instead he was drafted and sent to the frontlines as a junior officer.
With the 6th Fleet on the ropes, he finds himself battle promoted onto a little missile frigate that’s more missile than frigate. But as his career begins he learns that command isn’t what they teach you in college but what you learn in the hard vacuum of space.
As Karl loses his first major fleet engagement he’s adrift on a dying hulk with his only hope for the future to be a half mad Captain who might be his greatest mentor or his worst enemy.
Maybe both.
