Noah Hawley könyvei a rukkolán


Noah Hawley - Before ​the Fall
From ​the Emmy, PEN, Peabody, Critics' Choice, and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of the TV show _Fargo_ comes the thriller of the year. On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs--the painter--and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family. With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members--including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot--the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work? Events soon threaten to spiral out of control in an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations. And while Scott struggles to cope with fame that borders on notoriety, the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage. Amid pulse-quickening suspense, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, human nature, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

Noah Hawley - The ​Good Father
An ​intense, psychological novel about one doctor's suspense-filled quest to unlock the mind of a suspected political assassin: his twenty-year old son. As the Chief of Rheumatology at Columbia Presbyterian, Dr. Paul Allen's specialty is diagnosing patients with conflicting symptoms, patients other doctors have given up on. He lives a contented life in Westport with his second wife and their twin sons—hard won after a failed marriage earlier in his career that produced a son named Daniel. In the harrowing opening scene of this provocative and affecting novel, Dr. Allen is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot at a rally, and Daniel is caught on video as the assassin. Daniel Allen has always been a good kid - a decent student, popular - but, as a child of divorce, used to shuttling back and forth between parents, he is also something of a drifter. Which may be why, at the age of nineteen, he quietly drops out of Vassar and begins an aimless journey across the United States, during which he sheds his former skin and eventually even changes his name to Carter Allen Cash. Told alternately from the point of view of the guilt-ridden, determined father and his meandering, ruminative son, The Good Father is a powerfully emotional page-turner that keeps one guessing until the very end. This is an absorbing and honest novel about the responsibilities - and limitations - of being a parent and our capacity to provide our children with unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation.

Noah Hawley - Zuhanás ​előtt
Egy ​ködös nyári éjszakán magánrepülőgép száll fel az Egyesült Államok keleti partvidékéhez tartozó Martha’s Vineyard-szigetről New York felé, fedélzetén tizenegy utassal. Tízen a felső tízezer tagjai, a tizenegyedik egy nem túl jelentős festő. Tizenhat perccel az indulás után a gép az óceánba zuhan. A katasztrófát ketten élik túl: Scott Burroughs, a festő és a gépen utazó médiamogul négyéves kisfia. Burroughsnak sikerül a lehetetlen: partra úszik a gyerekkel. Ott aztán belekerül a nyomozás és a médiahisztéria kettős forgatagába. De vajon véletlenül zuhant-e le a gép? Vagy a befolyásos embereket szándékosan gyilkolta meg valaki? Noah Hawley thrillere napok alatt felkerült a sikerlistákra. A történet nem csak az olvasók, de a kritikusok közt is egyöntetű sikert aratott, mert a szenvedélyes összecsapások nagy gonddal és alapossággal megrajzolt szereplők között zajlanak le. A könyv letehetetlenül izgalmas. A szerzőt milliók ismerik szerte a világon, Ő a több földrészen is rendkívüli sikert aratott Fargo filmsorozat sokszorosan díjnyertes írója. Díjai közt ott az Emmy és a Golden Globe díjak. A zuhanás előtt filmjogait a Sony Pictures vásárolta meg. A könyv trailere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQ8ald5vqF0
