    In a near-future France, Francois, a middle-aged academic, is watching his life slowly dwindle to nothing. His sex drive is diminished, his parents are dead, and his lifelong obsession - the ideas and works of the nineteenth-century novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans - has led him nowhere. In a late-capitalist society where consumerism has become the new religion, Francois is spiritually barren, but seeking to fill the vacuum of his existence. And he is not alone. As the 2022 Presidential election approaches, two candidates emerge as favourites: Marine Le Pen of the Front National, and Muhammed Ben Abbes of the nascent Muslim Fraternity. Forming a controversial alliance with the mainstream parties, Ben Abbes sweeps to power, and overnight the country is transformed. Islamic law comes into force: women are veiled, polygamy is encouraged and, for Francois, life is set on a new course. Submission is both a devastating satire and a profound meditation on isolation, faith and love. It is a startling new work by one of the most provocative and prescient novelists of today.

    Thomas Harris

    • Heinemann ltd
    • 21 May 2019

    ________________________________ From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed and the consequences of dark obsession. ________________________________ Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider . Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men. Cari Mora , caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before. Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora , his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master. ________________________________ ''As good as ever. Reading his prose is like running a slow hand down cold silk.'' STEPHEN KING ''The last two decades of 19th century popular fiction were dominated by Conan Doyle and Sherlock Homes. A century on, suspense literature has achieved their equals in Thomas Harris.'' GUARDIAN ''Harris''s writing bears the hallmarks of honed perfection.'' THE TIMES ''The good news for readers of Cari Mora is that Hannibal is here in spirit if not in person ... What his fans look for is here - turned up to 11.'' SPECTATOR ''A tense heist thriller ... Harris''s best since The Silence of the Lambs'' NEW STATESMAN '' Cari Mora reinforces the brilliance of an author who can carve a piece of art from the placement of words on a page to form a narrative that scorches the mind, and makes one think.'' SHOTS MAGAZINE ''A literary event ... Thomas Harris is a supreme thriller writer - for not only does he create memorable and monstrous villains, but he also gives us formidable female protagonists ... Violent, brutal and action-packed, yet told with Harris''s typical wry wit, it crackles from first page to last.'' DAILY MAIL ''A cavalcade of the grotesque, with murderous figures that make Hannibal the Cannibal, the Tooth Fairy and Buffalo Bill appear like upright citizens from small-town America ... Hollywood directors will be dreaming of a golden windfall by putting this page-clawing thriller on to the big screen. Harris is a superlative storyteller with an eye for the director''s cut.'' DAILY EXPRESS ''Thomas Harris, the creator of Hannibal Lecter, is the greatest thriller writer of our time ... An expertly delivered and fast-paced thriller, full of distinctively Harrisian inflections'' EVENING STANDARD ''A gripping tale of lost cartel gold ... No shortage of physical action ... Harris delivers a narrative that is absolutely cut to the bone'' FINANCIAL TIMES ''Pulse-boosting suspense ...Harris''s flavourful prose: laconic, tough-guy Hemingway one moment ... then veering off into imagery of a Baroque luxuriance ... Harris evokes the poetry of everyday life - especially the natural world.'' i NEWS

  • The Overstory

    Richard Powers

    • Heinemann ltd
    • 12 April 2018

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018 ''Autumn makes me think of leaves, which makes me think of trees, which makes me think of The Overstory , the best novel ever written about trees, and really, just one of the best novels, period .'' Ann Patchett ''It''s a masterpiece.'' - Tim Winton ''It''s not possible for Powers to write an uninteresting book.'' - Margaret Atwood A monumental novel about trees and people by one of our most ''prodigiously talented'' ( The New York Times Book Review ) novelists. The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond: An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. These four, and five other strangers - each summoned in different ways by trees - are brought together in a last and violent stand to save the continent''s few remaining acres of virgin forest. There is a world alongside ours - vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.

  • Anglais THE CARTEL

    Don Winslow

    • Heinemann ltd
    • 3 September 2015

    From the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel , a gripping true-to-life epic, ripped from the headlines, of power, corruption, revenge and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars. It''s 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adan Barrera, the head of El Federacion , the world''s most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller''s partner. Finally putting Barrera away costs Keller dearly - the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice - or is it revenge - becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains and deserts of Mexico, to Washington''s corridors of power, to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona. Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico''s drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera - and himself - that he always knew must happen. The Cartel is true-to-life story of power, corruption, revenge, honour and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men - and women - who wage it.

  • Anglais GO SET A WATCHMAN

    Harper Lee

    • Heinemann ltd
    • 14 July 2015

    Go Set a Watchman is set during the mid-1950s and features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father Atticus. She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand both her fathers attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood. An instant classic.

    After To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960, Harper Lee set aside Go Set a Watchman, and never returned to it. The original manuscript of the novel was considered to have been lost until the autumn of 2014, when Tonja Carter discovered it in a secure location where it had been affixed to an original typescript of To Kill a Mockingbird.

  • SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2019 BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION Chosen as one of Barack Obama''s favourite books of 2019 '' A triumph on every level . One of the losses to literature is that Harper Lee never found a way to tell a gothic true-crime story she''d spent years researching. Casey Cep has excavated this mesmerizing story and tells it with grace and insight and a fierce fidelity to the truth. '' DAVID GRANN, author of Killers of the Flower Moon _____________________________ The stunning story of an Alabama serial killer and the true-crime book that Harper Lee worked on obsessively in the years after To Kill a Mockingbird Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members for insurance money in the 1970s. With the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for years until a relative shot him dead at the funeral of his last victim. Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell''s murderer was acquitted - thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended the Reverend. As Alabama is consumed by these gripping events, it''s not long until news of the case reaches Alabama''s - and America''s - most famous writer. Intrigued by the story, Harper Lee makes a journey back to her home state to witness the Reverend''s killer face trial. Lee had the idea of writing her own In Cold Blood, the true-crime classic she had helped her friend Truman Capote research. She spent a year in town reporting on the Maxwell case and many more years trying to finish the book she called The Reverend . Now Casey Cep brings this story to life, from the shocking murders to the courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South. At the same time, she offers a deeply moving portrait of one of America''s most beloved writers and her struggle with fame, success and the mystery of artistic creativity. This is the story Harper Lee wanted to write. This is the story of why she couldn''t. _____________________________ '' Fascinating ... Cep has spliced together a Southern-gothic tale of multiple murder and the unhappy story of Lee''s literary career, to produce a tale that is engrossing in its detail and deeply poignant ... [Cep] spends the first third of Furious Hours following the jaw-dropping trail of murders ... Engrossing ... Cep writes about all this with great skill, sensitivity and attention to detail .'' SUNDAY TIMES '' It''s been a long time since I picked up a book so impossible to put down . Furious Hours made me forget dinner, ignore incoming calls, and stay up reading into the small hours. It''s a work of literary and legal detection as gripping as a thriller . But it''s also a meditation on motive and mystery, the curious workings of history, hope, and ambition, justice, and the darkest matters of life and death. Casey Cep''s investigation into an infamous Southern murder trial and Harper Lee''s quest to write about it is a beautiful, sobering, and sometimes chilling triumph .'' HELEN MACDONALD, author of H is for Hawk ''This story is just too good ... Furious Hours builds and builds until it collides with the writer who saw the power of Maxwell''s story, but for some reason was unable to harness it. It lays bare the inner life of a woman who had a world-class gift for hiding ... [this] book makes a magical leap, and it goes from being a superbly written true-crime story to the sort of story that even Lee would have been proud to write .''

Freddy Otash is the man in the know and the man to know in ''50s L.A. He operates with two simple rules - he''ll do anything but commit murder and he''ll never work with the commies. Freddy is an ex-L.A. cop on the skids. He snuffed a cop killer in cold blood - and it got to him bad. So Chief William H. Parker canned him. Now he''s a sleazoid private eye, a shakedown artist, a pimp - and, most notably, the head strongarm goon for Confidential magazine. Confidential presaged the idiot internet - and delivered the dirt, the dish, the insidious ink and the scurrilous skank on the feckless foibles of misanthropic movie stars, sex-soiled socialites and potzo politicians.

Now, many years after Brunetti cleared her name, Flavia has returned to the illustrious La Fenice to sing the lead in Tosca . As an opera superstar, Flavia is well acquainted with attention from adoring fans and aspiring singers. But when one anonymous admirer inundates her with bouquets of yellow roses - on stage, in her dressing room and even inside her locked apartment - it becomes clear that this fan has become a potentially dangerous stalker. Distraught, Flavia turns to an old friend for help. Familiar with Flavia''s melodramatic temperament, Commissario Brunetti is at first unperturbed by her story, but when another young opera singer is attacked he begins to think Flavia''s fears may be justified. In order to keep his friend out of danger, Brunetti must enter the psyche of an obsessive fan and find the culprit before anyone comes to harm.
