Things at Donovan s Bar get a little raucous sometimes and the people carry their share of Ireland s tragic history, but in Kilgallan, the fights are happy, the songs are sad and the days are as rich as slow-poured, peaty beer.|

|This extraordinary memoir is an unprecedented glimpse into the psyche of a young girl in free fall and conveys to readers - including parents and survivors of abuse - just how completely a pedophile enchants his victim and binds her to him.|
One summer day, Margaux Fragoso meets Peter Curran at the neighborhood swimming pool, and they begin to play. She is seven, he is fifty-one. When Peter invites her and her mother to his house, the little girl finds a child s paradise of exotic pets and an elaborate backyard garden. Her mother, beset by mental illness and overwhelmed by caring for Margaux, is grateful for the attention Peter lavishes on her, and he creates an imaginative universe for her, much as Lewis Carroll did for his real-life Alice.
In time, he insidiously takes on the role of Margaux s playmate, father, and lover. Charming and manipulative, Peter burrows into every aspect of Margaux s life and transforms her from a child fizzing with imagination and affection into a brainwashed young woman on the verge of suicide. But when she is twenty-two, it is Peter - ill, and wracked with guilt - who kills himself, at the age of sixty-six.
Told with lyricism, depth, and mesmerizing clarity, Tiger, Tiger vividly illustrates the healing power of memory and disclosure. This extraordinary memoir is an unprecedented glimpse into the psyche of a young girl in free fall and conveys to readers - including parents and survivors of abuse - just how completely a pedophile enchants his victim and binds her to him.

|Following the success of The Memory Game, Killing Me Softly is Nicci French s third novel--a genuinely compelling, often compulsive, study of love and violence. French is prepared to risk romantic fantasy: the chance encounter with a beautiful man in the street:--"He was wearing black jeans and a black leather jacket, and then I looked up at his face"- -who draws Alice, the narrator, away from her lover and her life. " ‘Please ," he said then, still not taking his eyes off my face. ‘Will you come with me? " Adam Tallis is a hero: a sexual hero, certainly, but also a man--a climber--who has saved lives. Or has he? Told in continuous flashback, we know from the start of this novel that something has gone wrong, but what, why and who will remain in question. Adam is a seducer--a dangerous one--and French uses him to explore the devastation of requited love (what happens to a modern woman if she does marry an ideal?). But just how dangerous he is, who is threatened most by this passion, is part of the puzzle and intelligence of this book, right up to, and beyond, its remarkable conclusion.-- Vicky Lebeau --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.|

|Hodvábnik v originále.|
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine s disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him. And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before... A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant Robin Ellacott.
