The Private Patient: An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery

Description: Cheverell Manor is a lovely old house in deepest Dorset, now a private clinic belonging to the famous plastic surgeon George Chandler-Powell. When investigative journalist Rhoda Gradwyn arrived there one late autumn afternoon, scheduled to have a disfiguring and long-standing facial scar removed, she had every expectation of a successful operation and a pleasant week recuperating. Two days later she was dead, the victim of murder. To Commander Adam Dalgliesh, who with his team is called in to investigate the case, the mystery at first seems absolute. Few things about it make sense. Yet as the detectives begin probing the lives and backgrounds of those connected with the dead woman the surgeon, members of the manor staff, close acquaintances suspects multiply all too rapidly. New confusions arise, including strange historical overtones of madness and a lynching 350 years in the past. Then there is a second murder, and Dalgliesh finds himself confronted by issues even more challenging than innocence or guilt.

Jacquot and the Waterman

Jacquot and the Waterman

Description: British travel editor O'Brien makes an impressive debut with a gritty procedural set in the south of France. Chief Insp. Daniel Jacquot faces a baffling series of murders—the victims are all women who've been sexually assaulted and left in water. The killer's m.o. leads the press to dub him the Waterman. Under pressure to produce a speedy solution, Jacquot pursues inquiries that lead to several violent underworld figures, as well as to members of Marseilles's social elite. The author skillfully raises the tension by alternating his narrative perspective. The number of coincidences may strain credibility for some, but for most readers the biggest letdown will be in the identity of the Waterman, who's detected almost as an afterthought and primarily through the efforts of someone other than Jacquot. Hopefully, O'Brien, who clearly has the talent to do a better plotting job, will allow his canny hero to take a bigger role in catching the villain next time.

Három vak egér

Description: Egy téli napon a kis vendégfogadóba egymás után érkeznek a vendégek: a kócos, vörös hajú, epezöld kockás nyakkendőt viselő, kaján vigyorú walesi fiatalember, Christopher Wren; az agresszív, parancsoláshoz szokott és a kákán is csomót kereső, zord külsejű Mrs. Boyle; a katonás eleganciájú, keménykötésű, magáról semmit el nem áruló Metcalf őrnagy; és a pipiskedő, a hölgyeket szatír módjára vizslató külföldi, Mr. Paravicini. A panziót vezető újdonsült házaspár, Giles és Molly Davis a nagy munka közepette tán észre sem veszi, milyen különös alakok szálltak meg náluk. Azután az intézményt egy hatalmas hóvihar elvágja a külvilágtól. Ám az aggodalom akkor hág a tetőfokára, amikor a rendőrség embere mégis eljut a vendégházba. Az ifjú Trotter őrmester ugyanis azért tette meg ezt az emberpróbáló utat, hogy beszámoljon az egybegyűlteknek egy-két napja történt gyilkosságról, s hogy közölje, a tettes itt van, és újból ölni készül…

Ringenes herre 1 - Eventyret om ringen

Description: Ondskabens Fyrste, Sauron den Store, har taget alle Magtens Ringe i sin besiddelse. Med dem vil han kunne herske over Midgård, og mørket vil sænke sig over alle levende væsner. Men én ring mangler for at gøre herredømmet totalt: Den ene Ring - Herskeren over alle Ringe.

I et sært følgeskab af Gandalf, Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, Merry, Pippin og Sam Gammegod - Frodos tro følgesvend - begiver Frodo sig af sted på en farefuld færd mod Mordor for at smide Ringen i revnerne af Dommedagsbjerget.

The Hobbit: BBC Radio Dramatisation

Description: The hobbit-hole in question belongs to one Bilbo Baggins, an upstanding member of a "little people, about half our height, and smaller than the bearded dwarves." He is, like most of his kind, well off, well fed, and best pleased when sitting by his own fire with a pipe, a glass of good beer, and a meal to look forward to. Certainly this particular hobbit is the last person one would expect to see set off on a hazardous journey; indeed, when Gandalf the Grey stops by one morning, "looking for someone to share in an adventure," Baggins fervently wishes the wizard elsewhere. No such luck, however; soon 13 fortune-seeking dwarves have arrived on the hobbit's doorstep in search of a burglar, and before he can even grab his hat or an umbrella, Bilbo Baggins is swept out his door and into a dangerous adventure.

Czterej pancerni i pies

Description: Jeśli nadużywany przymiotnik „kultowy” zachował w dzisiejszych czasach resztki pierwotnego znaczenia, to z całą pewnością należy odnieść je do rodzica wszystkich kultowych zjawisk w polskiej powojennej kulturze masowej: powieści Janusza Przymanowskiego Czterej pancerni i pies, oraz opartego na niej serialu telewizyjnego.Dla pokolenia dzisiejszych trzydziesto- i czterdziestolatków, dla ich synów, a w przyszłości zapewne i wnuków, Czterej pancerni – są tym, czym była Sienkiewiczowska Trylogia dla ich pradziadów – wpisaną w burzliwe historyczne dzieje ilustracją odwiecznego mitu o walce dobra ze złem, miłości z nienawiścią i rozumu z głupotą.

My Sister's Keeper

Description: New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age 13, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate, a life and a role that she has never challenged, until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister, and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.
