"Les élèves de ma classe, à Berlin-Est, se divisaient en deux camps : les uns qui avaient peur, et ceux qui, le lendemain ou le surlendemain s'enfuiraient là-bas. LÀ-BAS." Un polar atypique et un thriller politique qui nous offre un panorama de destins allemands et polonais croisés sur trois générations, sur fond de guerre froide et d'espionnage. Berlin, 1998. Klaus Kreifeld reçoit la visite d'un certain Foerster, accompagné de son garde du corps. Peu après, il est assassiné. Vingt ans auparavant, en 1981, Klaus avait été chargé de diriger la construction d'un tunnel de 148 mètres de long entre Berlin Ouest et Berlin Est. L'objectif officiel de l'opération était d'organiser l'évasion d'un haut fonctionnaire communiste, le trouble Franz. Peter, un des membres de l'équipe ayant participé à la mise en œuvre de cette entreprise périlleuse, décide de mener l'enquête pour découvrir le meurtrier de son ami. Persuadé que la mort de Klaus est liée au tunnel, il retrouve ses camarades de l'époque et recueille leurs témoignages pour tenter de faire toute la lumière sur cette étrange aventure souterraine. Après toutes ces années, il reste encore beaucoup de zones d'ombre. Comment se fait-il que le tunnel ait été creusé pour un seul homme ? Pourquoi la NBC voulait-elle filmer l'évasion ? Pourquoi les membres de l'équipe ont-ils été aussitôt interceptés et interrogés par les Américains ? Un accord avait-il été conclu entre les services secrets est-allemands et les renseignements occidentaux ? Dans quel but ? Au fur et à mesure qu'il déroule la pelote de cette intrigue, Peter va découvrir une réalité bien plus complexe qu'il ne l'imaginait. Et s'ils avaient tous été manipulés ? Dans ce roman choral, l'auteur, telle une dentellière, tisse sa trame avec précision et finesse, brossant un panorama de destins allemands et polonais croisés sur trois générations. Un polar atypique et un thriller politique qui nous offre un voyage dans les profondeurs de l'Histoire européenne de 1945 à nos jours. --prix "Hibou d'Or" en Autriche -- nominé au Prix Paszport Polityki -- nominé au Prix Angelus --Son dernier roman, Le Magicien (à paraître en français en 2018) a reçu le Prix de littérature de l'Union européenne en 2015.

Jerry Grey is known to most of the world by his crime writing pseudonym, Henry Cutter--a name that has been keeping readers at the edge of their seats for more than a decade. Recently diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at the age of forty-nine, Jerry's crime writing days are coming to an end. His twelve books tell stories of brutal murders committed by bad men, of a world out of balance, of victims finding the darkest forms of justice. As his dementia begins to break down the wall between his life and the lives of the characters he has created, Jerry confesses his worst secret: The stories are real. He knows this because he committed the crimes. Those close to him, including the nurses at the care home where he now lives, insist that it is all in his head, that his memory is being toyed with and manipulated by his unfortunate disease. But if that were true, then why are so many bad things happening? Why are people dying?

'A Silence of the Lambs for the internet age.' Ian Rankin 'Utterly riveting and truly terrifying.' Laura Wilson, Guardian When a distressed young woman arrives at their station claiming her friend has been abducted, and that the man threatened to come back and 'claim her next', Detectives Carrigan and Miller are thrust into a terrifying new world of stalking and obsession.

Under scrutiny themselves, and with old foes and enmities re-surfacing, how long will Carrigan and Miller have to find out the truth behind what these two women have been subjected to?

The classic work of political, economic, and historical analysis, powerfully introduced by Angela Davis In his short life, the Guyanese intellectual Walter Rodney emerged as one of the leading thinkers and activists of the anticolonial revolution, leading movements in North America, South America, the African continent, and the Caribbean. In each locale, Rodney found himself a lightning rod for working class Black Power. His deportation catalyzed 20th century Jamaica's most significant rebellion, the 1968 Rodney riots, and his scholarship trained a generation how to think politics at an international scale. In 1980, shortly after founding of the Working People's Alliance in Guyana, the 38-year-old Rodney would be assassinated. In his magnum opus, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, Rodney incisively argues that grasping "the great divergence" between the west and the rest can only be explained as the exploitation of the latter by the former. This meticulously researched analysis of the abiding repercussions of European colonialism on the continent of Africa has not only informed decades of scholarship and activism, it remains an indispensable study for grasping global inequality today.

Normal faults are the primary structures that accommodate extension of the brittle crust. This volume provides an up-to-date overview of current research into the geometry and growth of normal faults. The 23 research papers present the findings of outcrop and subsurface studies of the geometrical evolution of faults from a number of basins worldwide, complemented by analogue and numerical modelling studies of fundamental aspects of fault kinematics. The topics addressed include how fault length changes with displacement, how faults interact with one another, the controls of previous structure on fault evolution and the nature and origin of fault-related folding. This volume will be of interest to those wishing to develop a better understanding of the structural geological aspects of faulting, from postgraduate students to those working in industry.
