Their quest takes them into the Ozarks—home base of the Wolfe empire—where Bone discovers that Cutter is pursuing both a cold-blooded killer, but also an even bigger and more elusive enemy.

EDIZIONE SPECIALE: CONTIENE UN ESTRATTO DI GUERRA SUI MARI. IL DOMINIO SU ROMA Un autore da oltre 900.000 copie Un grande romanzo storico È giovane, Ottaviano, ma già console. Eppure il suo ruolo non gli è sufficiente per portare a termine la vendetta contro gli assassini di Giulio Cesare, l'amato padre adottivo. La sua sete di giustizia non può essere placata nelle aule di un tribunale. Si trova degli alleati potenti: Marco Antonio e Lepido, con cui forma il triumvirato. Comincia a seminare un clima di terrore per le strade di Roma. Ma non è ancora abbastanza e così alimenta il clima di tensione che potrà sciogliersi solo su un campo di battaglia. Il momento non si fa attendere troppo: eccoli lì schierati, i due eserciti, con quattro grandi condottieri pronti a scontrarsi a viso aperto in Macedonia, lontano dall'Urbe e dalla sua corruzione. Bruto e Cassio da una parte, Ottaviano e Marco Antonio dall'altra. È la battaglia di Filippi, una delle più famose della storia romana. Qui si compirà finalmente la vendetta sugli assassini di Cesare? 42 a.C. Una lotta fratricida La sfida all'ultimo sangue per il controllo di Roma «Frediani è un grande narratore di battaglie.» Corrado Augias, il Venerdì di Repubblica «All’indomani delle idi di marzo, la lotta per il potere vede emergere il giovane Ottaviano, che si ritrova a combattere con rivali esperti e pericolosi come Marco Antonio e Lepido.» Focus Storia «Un periodo storico colmo di “densissimi avvenimenti”, in cui la corruzione dilagava, i clientelismi anche ed enormi patrimoni passavano da un partito all’altro. Strano parallelismo con l’attualità, se non che a quel tempo i protagonisti di lungo corso della politica romana [...] furono sconfitti dal figlio adottivo di Cesare.» BBC History Italia Andrea FredianiÈ nato a Roma nel 1963, consulente scientifico della rivista «Focus Wars», ha collaborato con numerose riviste specializzate.

The first in a trilogy about the last emperor of southern Mozambique by one of Africa’s most important writers Southern Mozambique, 1894. Sergeant Germano de Melo is posted to the village of Nkokolani to oversee the Portuguese conquest of territory claimed by Ngungunyane, the last of the leaders of the state of Gaza, the second-largest empire led by an African. Ngungunyane has raised an army to resist colonial rule and with his warriors is slowly approaching the border village. Desperate for help, Germano enlists Imani, a fifteen-year-old girl, to act as his interpreter. She belongs to the VaChopi tribe, one of the few who dared side with the Portuguese. But while one of her brothers fights for the Crown of Portugal, the other has chosen the African emperor. Standing astride two kingdoms, Imani is drawn to Germano, just as he is drawn to her. But she knows that in a country haunted by violence, the only way out for a woman is to go unnoticed, as if made of shadows or ashes. Alternating between the voices of Imani and Germano, Mia Couto’s Woman of the Ashes combines vivid folkloric prose with extensive historical research to give a spellbinding and unsettling account of war-torn Mozambique at the end of the nineteenth century.

On the forty-sixth floor, in an empty conference room, the corpse of a beautiful young woman is discovered.

National Book Award Finalist A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver. In the small town of Holt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl—her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house—is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go. And out in the country, two brothers, elderly bachelors, work the family homestead, the only world they've ever known. From these unsettled lives emerges a vision of life, and of the town and landscape that bind them together—their fates somehow overcoming the powerful circumstances of place and station, their confusion, curiosity, dignity and humor intact and resonant. As the milieu widens to embrace fully four generations, Kent Haruf displays an emotional and aesthetic authority to rival the past masters of a classic American tradition.

Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can’t deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray.

To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her—in more ways than one. Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. She has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn’t been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace. With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire—and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.
