Un omicidio strano, quello di un barista ritrovato con un foro di proiettile in fronte e misteriosi segni su una mano. Un delitto che risveglia la sonnolenta città di Ancona, desta antiche paure, scuote fino a far emergere segreti che erano sepolti dietro rassicuranti apparenze. Una coraggiosa ragazza usa il suo acume per destreggiarsi in una trama intricata che evolve con ritmo frenetico, sfiorando pericoli e doppi giochi mortali. Uscirne viva è una sfida che non è scontato vincere. Come il mare ad occhi chiusi è un giallo mozzafiato, dove nemmeno la soluzione finale è in grado di offrire il conforto di una certezza. La verità è molteplice, ha più facce e quando il caso sembra risolto, tutto si capovolge di nuovo, per far affiorare segreti ancora più reconditi ed inquietanti.

Ancona, via Bezzecca, una palazzina con cinque appartamenti è il teatro quasi esclusivo dell’azione di questo giallo dove i personaggi femminili sono davvero dominanti, con tutte le loro qualità e i loro difetti, con tutte le loro contraddizioni e i loro problemi. Tra i personaggi principali, la rumena Catinca, sposata con un italiano marito-padrone, la saggia Gabriella (detta Bri), un’anziana psicologa in pensione, che vive in una piccola comune femminile, e Jo, impiegata amministrativa della Questura di Ancona, ragazza anticonformista, testarda e scorbutica, ma dotata di un forte senso della giustizia. Saranno le donne a far luce sulla tragica fine di un’anziana coppia di coniugi, loro coinquilini. Ma nel romanzo c’è molto di più: c’è una riflessione sulla condizione femminile, sul significato della solidarietà tra donne, sulla famiglia (non sempre positiva), sul valore della presa di coscienza del proprio ruolo e, di riflesso, anche sul mondo maschile. Questo romanzo, vincitore del V Concorso per il Giallo, Thriller e Noir indetto da EEE-book (2017), è ben scritto, senza cedimenti nel ritmo narrativo, e lascia il lettore con la piacevole sensazione di aver letto una storia coerente e coesa, ricca di spunti interessanti e capace di offrire uno sguardo acuto e profondo su alcuni significativi aspetti della realtà socioculturale dell’Italia contemporanea.

This is Naples as you’ve never seen it before. A chaotic, shadowy city full of ominous echoes and dark alleyways where each inhabitant seems too absorbed by his or her own problems to give a damn about anybody else. And that is exactly what makes it possible for a cold, methodical killer to commit his atrocious crimes largely undisturbed, to merge with the crowd as if he were invisible. The newspapers call him “The Crocodile” because, like a crocodile, when he devours his own children, he cries. And like a crocodile he is a perfect killing machine: he waits and watches until his prey is within range, and then he strikes. Three young people with very diverse backgrounds have been found murdered in three different neighborhoods, each shot with a single bullet, execution style. While his colleagues see little or no connection, Inspector Giuseppe Lojacono, smells a rat. He is driven by his instincts and his own troubled recent history. He has just been transferred to Naples from Sicily where a Mafioso-turned-informant accused him of leaking sensitive information to the mob. Once an estimated member of the mobile unit of the Agrigento police force, Lojacono has lost everything, first and foremost the love of his wife and daughter. But now he’s been given a second chance and a shot at clearing his name. A young magistrate, the beautiful Laura Piras, wants him in Naples. She’s heard of his preternatural skills and his incredible powers of observation and she thinks a man like him is needed in Naples. So it is that Inspector Lojacono is charged with finding the link between the three dead bodies. At the root of these murders, he will discover, is a pain that still burns, a sense of guilt than cannot be purged, and one all-consuming love.

The Final Book in the Marseilles Trilogy Ex-cop, loner, Fabio Montale returns in this stunning conclusion to Jean-Claude Izzo's Marseilles trilogy.

A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.
