“A másik detektív felhívta a figyelmet arra a körülményre, hogy fájdalmas következményekkel jár, ha valakit szájon vágnak, és minek gyűjteni a pofonokat, amikor öreg napjaira e takarékosságának tőkéje aligha jelentheti életének nyugalmas alkonyát.”
(Rejtő Jenő)


Robert Galbraith - El ​canto del cuco
El ​canto del cuco es la aclamada primera novela de misterio de J. K. Rowling escrita bajo el seudónimo de Robert Galbraith. Una joven modelo con problemas emocionales cae desde su balcón de Mayfair en plena noche. Su cuerpo yace en la calle nevada. Todo el mundo asume que ha sido un suicidio, excepto su hermano, que contrata los servicios del investigador privado Cormoran Strike para que se encargue del caso. Veterano de guerra con secuelas físicas y psicológicas, la vida de Strike es un desastre. El encargo le da cierto respiro económico, pero cuanto más profundiza en el complejo mundo de la modelo, más oscuro parece todo y más se acerca Strike a un gran peligro. Un elegante misterio impregnado de la atmósfera de Londres, desde las calles más selectas de Mayfair hasta los pubs ocultos del East End o el bullicio del Soho.

Robert Galbraith - El ​cuc de seda
Un ​cas únic només pot ser resolt per una ment única Aquest cop, l?escenari és el món de la literatura, les editorials, els premis, les enveges, les rivalitats, els interessos... Un escenari que Rowling coneix molt bé.Quan l'escriptor Owen Quine desapareix, la seva dona truca al detectiu privat Cormoran Strike perquè el trobi. Al principi, ella creu senzillament que ha tocat el dos un parell de dies, tal com ha fet altres vegades, i l'únic que espera de Cormoran és que el trobi i el faci tornar a casa. Però a mesura que la investigació de Strike avança, resulta evident que hi ha alguna cosa estranya en la desaparició d'en Quine que la seva dona no sospita. L'escriptor tot just ha acabat un manuscrit ple de retrats i descripcions de totes les persones que coneix. Si la novel·la es publiqués, arruïnaria moltes vides. Això vol dir que hi ha força gent que el preferiria callat.I quan la policia troba el cos d'en Quine, que ha estat brutalment assassinat en estranyes circumstàncies, comença una carrera contra rellotge per entendre les motivacions d'un assassí despietat. Un assassí totalment diferent de tots els que ha conegut fins aleshores.

Seventeen-year-old ​Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But it’s not a skill that she’s ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they’ve begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie. What Cassie doesn’t realize is that there’s more at risk than a few unsolved homicides— especially when she’s sent to live with a group of teens whose gifts are as unusual as her own. Sarcastic, privileged Michael has a knack for reading emotions, which he uses to get inside Cassie’s head—and under her skin. Brooding Dean shares Cassie’s gift for profiling, but keeps her at arm’s length. Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms closer than Cassie could ever have imagined. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive.

When their latest case brings back a ghost from their past, Cassie and the other Naturals find themselves racing against the clock--and reliving their own childhood traumas.In a small, coastal town in Maine, there has been a rash of teen suicides--or at least, that's what the police believe. Mackenzie McBride, age twelve, thinks differently. Desperate to make herself heard, she stands at the top of a lighthouse, threatening to jump... unless the FBI agents who rescued her from a kidnapper at age six come to hear her out.Enter the Naturals. It doesn't take Cassie long to realize that Mackenzie isn't bluffing: she truly is convinced that the suicides are murder, and she really will jump if she can't get the FBI to believe her. To the outside world, Mackenzie is nothing more than a traumatized child. But so was Cassie, once upon a time. So were Michael, Dean, Sloane, Lia, and Celine. With a storm rolling in off the ocean and Mackenzie's position becoming more precarious by the moment, the Naturals have very little time to get to the truth about the deaths--and about twelve-year-old Mackenzie McBride.
