  • Alan Conway est un auteur à succès. Les lecteurs vénèrent son détective, Fidèle Staupert, et raffolent de ses enquêtes dans la campagne anglaise, véritables hommages à l'âge d'or des romans d'énigme et à la reine du crime, Agatha Christie. Plus les fans achètent, plus son éditrice, Susan Ryeland, a le sourire.
    Mais le dernier roman de Conway n'est pas comme les autres. En s'y plongeant, Susan découvre que le manuscrit dissimule une bien sombre énigme et qu'il ne s'agit cette fois pas d'une fiction. Son auteur est en danger et Susan, éditrice devenue détective à son tour, doit déchiffrer le puzzle de cette comptine mortelle avant qu'il ne soit trop tard...

  • « Sherlock Holmes est mort. Vive Moriarty ! ».

    « Non, ce n'était pas moi. Je vais vous dire pourquoi, laissez-moi d'abord me présenter. Je m'appelle Frederick Chase, je suis détective à l'agence américaine Pinkerton. Ma mission ? Retrouver Clarence Devereux et geler les activités de ce cerveau criminel, qui s'est empressé de venir combler le vide laissé par la mort de Moriarty, cet ennemi juré de Sherlock Holmes. Dans le but de mettre la main sur ce génie du mal, je devais accompagner l'inspecteur Athelney Jones, un condisciple de Holmes et l'un de ses adeptes, dans les antres les plus ténébreux de Londres ».

    Le criminel le plus dangereux d'Angleterre n'est pas celui que l'on croit. Si le professeur Moriarty, le « Napoléon du crime », est bien mort en tombant d'une hauteur de 250 mètres dans les chutes de Reichenbach, en Suisse, qui donc lui a succédé à la tête du milieu criminel londonien ? Est-ce cet impitoyable gangster new-yorkais venu régner sur la pègre londonienne pour faire le pont avec son fief mafieux de New York ? Et si Moriarty n'était pas mort ?

  • Literary legend James Bond returns to his 1950s heyday in this exhilarating thriller by Sunday Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz. It's 1957 and James Bond (agent 007) has only just survived his showdown with Auric Goldfinger at Fort Knox. By his side is Pussy Galore, who was with him at the end. Unknown to either of them, the USSR and the West are in a deadly struggle for technological superiority. And SMERSH is back. The Soviet counter-intelligence agency plans to sabotage a Grand Prix race at the most dangerous track in Europe. But it's Bond who finds himself in the driving seat and events take an unexpected turn when he observes a suspicious meeting between SMERSH's driver and a sinister Korean millionaire, Jai Seong Sin. Soon Bond is pitched into an entirely different race uncovering a plan that could bring the West to its knees. Welcoming back familiar faces, including M and Miss Moneypenny, international bestselling author Anthony Horowitz ticks all the boxes: speed, danger, strong women and fiendish villains, to reinvent the golden age of Bond in this brilliantly gripping adventure. Trigger Mortis is also the first James Bond novel to feature previously unseen Ian Fleming material. This is James Bond as Fleming imagined him.

It''s too late... '' These were Richard Pryce''s last words, overheard moments before the celeb divorce lawyer was bludgeoned to death with a £3,000 bottle of wine. Strange circumstances pile up.
