NARRATIVA - Descrizione
"Scorching Heat is part 9 of the Kluftinger series. What a heat! Actually much too humid to go outside. But Kluftinger has no choice: He has to investigate the clay pit where Professor Brunner unearthed the famous skeleton of the prehistoric ape ""Udo"" some time ago. Now Brunner has been found buried under a shovel excavator. The scientist, who wanted to prove with his find that the cradle of mankind lies in the Allgäu, had many enemies. Kluftinger therefore has his sights set on several suspects at once, including the members of an obscure sect. But the inspector also has to take care of an object of observation in his private life: The daycare mother of his little granddaughter is pursuing some very strange educational approaches. Reason enough to keep a closer eye on her and take flying lessons with Doctor Langhammer and his new high-tech drone. But the test flight gets dangerously out of hand ... "
Rosie Hart is over the moon: her favourite band “Scarlet Luck” has agreed to come and do an interview on her indie web radio show. Just the thought of being in the same room as Logan, Thorn, Hunt and Beast is giving her butterflies. Not only has Rosie been following the band for seven years, but their music has got her through the darkest days of her life. She especially wants to find out more about Adam Sinclair, the band’s drummer. Everyone just calls him “Beast”, and nobody knows anything about him apart from the fact that he hasn’t allowed anyone to touch him for years. Rosie is determined to make this the best interview the Rosie Hart Show has ever seen. But once the band are finally standing there in her little studio, she makes a terrible faux-pas. The interview is terminated on the spot – and as if that wasn’t bad enough, the incident goes viral and hatred rains down on Rosie and her show. After she’s attacked by some fans in the street, the band find out what’s happened. Keen to show the public that they’ve put the incident behind them, they invite Rosie to one of their concerts. Suddenly Rosie finds herself face to face with Beast once more. Beast, in whose eyes she sees deep emotional distress. Beast, who makes her heart beat faster. Beast, whom she will never be allowed to touch again...
The Coldest Case is part 14 of the Bruno, Chief of Police series. After attending an exhibit on the facial reconstruction of ancient skulls, Bruno wonders if this technology might provide an invaluable clue to a thirty-year-old cold case. But learning the identity of the murder victim is only the beginning. The investigation quickly turns thorny and leads Bruno to a reclusive vintner, Henri Bazaine, whose education at a vocational school in a formerly Communist region has raised some eyebrows. An inquiry into the defunct school turns up shadowy reports of possible connections and funding from the Stasi, the repressive police agency of the former East Germany. The scrutiny on Henri intensifies once Bruno discovers that he was declared dead thirty years ago and has been living under an assumed name ever since. The strange case is further complicated as Parisian bureaucrats get involved, hinting that essential diplomatic relations might be at stake. And to make matters even worse, the Dordogne is suffering from an intense summer drought that is sparking fires across the region. But as always, Bruno will keep a cool head through it all--and, bien sûr, takes time to enjoy a sumptuous Périgordian meal!
Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing. But it's the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans, the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with - of all things - her mind. True chemistry results. Like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later, Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America's most beloved cooking show, Supper at Six. Elizabeth's unusual approach to cooking ('combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride') proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn't just teaching women to cook. She's daring them to change the status quo.
"A torn photograph brings the truth to light. It is the snapshot of a betrayal that connects four destinies, bringing them together and confronting them with the uncomfortable questions of middle age: letting go or holding on? Who do I become if I no longer try to please everyone, and where will I go if I no longer let anyone else tell me which path to take? Ruth flees with this photograph and her overly large dog to her grandparents’ old villa. Here she encounters her sister, to whom she hasn’t spoken in years, and realises the lie that caused them to fall out and the crime that has dictated her life. She takes a shine to Rudi on the first floor who is preparing for his death with gentle bravery but wants to get things finally sorted beforehand. She meets Erdal, who is going through a bumpy period in his life and accidentally invites his cousin to the villa, which has serious consequences. In quick succession, noses and several illusions are busted. Ruth steps out of the shadows of her past. And the end is actually the beginning."
Carl Vorlau, a mysterious patient at a private psychiatric clinic, claims to have kidnapped seven-year-old Pia months ago and taken her to a secret location. Vorlau only wants to talk to one person about his crime - the literary agent David Dolla, who is as humorous as he is unconventional, and to whom Vorlau makes a diabolical offer: the agent is to give him an advancement of one million euros for a thriller. A confession in the form of a true-crime novel about the fate of little Pia! As a reward, Vorlau promises to make Dolla a hero who saves the girl from certain death at the last second. However, if Dolla refuses the job, Vorlau not only wants to let Pia die but also wants to destroy the agent's life forever...

She put the criminals away, but only after being attacked and nearly killed. Three years later, and approaching forty, she is tired of her work for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct and ready for a change. Then she meets a mysterious woman who is so frightened she uses a number of aliases. Jeri Crosby’s father was murdered twenty years earlier in a case that remains unsolved and that has grown stone cold. But Jeri has a suspect whom she has become obsessed with and has stalked for two decades. Along the way, she has discovered other victims. Suspicions are easy enough, but proof seems impossible. The man is brilliant, patient, and always one step ahead of law enforcement. He is the most cunning of all serial killers. He knows forensics, police procedure, and most important: he knows the law. He is a judge, in Florida—under Lacy’s jurisdiction. He has a list, with the names of his victims and targets, all unsuspecting people unlucky enough to have crossed his path and wronged him in some way. How can Lacy pursue him, without becoming the next name on his list?
Baking bread is almost like a dance. The dough is kneaded rhythmically, the turning of the hands, and the swing of the hips give it suppleness. The former dancer Fanny watches the Italian baker Giacomo at work with fascination. Actually, she wanted to quit the temporary job in the village bakery right away. But the abrupt end of her career has thrown her life off track. Who is she when she's not dancing? Who will love her when she's no longer shining on stage? But surprisingly, Fanny finds much more than just an occupation in the small bakery: the wisdom of a simple man, the happiness of small things and the courage to change.

In his pursuit of a killer determined to remain hidden, he's assisted by Detective Sergeants Barbara Havers and Winston Nkata.

August 1999. A scorching heat has settled over Bodenstein, the dump of a town that 15-year-old Pascal calls home. It’s the holidays and he should really be enjoying the summer and all the joys that it brings: the lido that sells the best chips in the world, the water that sparkles in the sun like a promise. But ever since Pascal stopped swimming, summer has lost its charm. Why he stopped is a secret, though. As is the reason everyone has started to call him Krüger, or why he is not allowed, under any circumstances, to fall in love. Anyway, Pascal prefers to daydream and write stories in his tattered notebook. But soon a girl called Jacky crashes into Pascal’s world with her red hair, water-blue eyes, and fearlessness. They spend one last summer's day together which changes everything, forever, and ends in friendship, a love story, and a death.
