Le bon père - Noah Hawley Summary

"Quand il avait sept ans, il était fou de sa balançoire. Il poussait sur ses pieds et pointait les talons vers le ciel en criant : "Encore! Encore!" C’était un enfant vorace, infatigable, et tellement vivant qu’à côté de lui tout le monde paraissait malade, immobile. La nuit, il se couchait sur son lit défait, à moitié habillé, le front plissé, les poings serrés, comme une tornade qui n’aurait plus d’air. Qui était ce petit garçon et comment devint-il un homme jouant avec des balles de pistolet dans une chambre de motel? Qu’est-ce qui le poussa un jour à plaquer sa vie tranquille pour commettre un acte barbare? J’ai lu les rapports. J’ai regardé les images. Mais la réponse continue de m'échapper. Plus que tout, je veux savoir. Car voyez-vous, je suis son père." La vie de Paul Allen bascule un soir, après l'assassinat du favori à l’élection présidentielle. Le suspect n’est autre que son fils, Daniel. Commence alors une longue quête pour reconstituer les derniers mois de la vie de son fils, rétablir la vérité et enfin affronter leur passé.

Always Watching - Chevy Stevens Summary

She helps people put their demons to rest. But she has a few of her own... In the lockdown ward of a psychiatric hospital, Dr. Nadine Lavoie is in her element. She has the tools to help people, and she has the desire—healing broken families is what she lives for. But Nadine doesn't want to look too closely at her own past because there are whole chunks of her life that are black holes. It takes all her willpower to tamp down her recurrent claustrophobia, and her daughter, Lisa, is a runaway who has been on the streets for seven years. When a distraught woman, Heather Simeon, is brought into the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine gently coaxes her story out of her—and learns of some troubling parallels with her own life. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her traumatic childhood, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a remote commune on Vancouver Island. What happened to Nadine? Why was their family destroyed? And why does the name Aaron Quinn, the group's leader, bring complex feelings of terror to Nadine even today? And then, the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined. She has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most...and fight back. Sometimes you can leave the past, but you can never escape. Told with the trademark powerful storytelling that has had critics praising her work as "Gripping" (Kirkus), "Jaw-dropping" (Publishers Weekly) and "Crackling with suspense" (People magazine), ALWAYS WATCHING shows why Chevy Stevens is one of the most mesmerizing new talents of our day.

The Accident - Chris Pavone Summary

From the author of the New York Times-bestselling and Edgar Award-winning The Expats As dawn approaches in New York, literary agent Isabel Reed is turning the final pages of a mysterious, anonymous manuscript, racing through the explosive revelations about powerful people, as well as long-hidden secrets about her own past. In Copenhagen, veteran CIA operative Hayden Gray, determined that this sweeping story be buried, is suddenly staring down the barrel of an unexpected gun. And in Zurich, the author himself is hiding in a shadowy expat life, trying to atone for a lifetime’s worth of lies and betrayals with publication of The Accident, while always looking over his shoulder. Over the course of one long, desperate, increasingly perilous day, these lives collide as the book begins its dangerous march toward publication, toward saving or ruining careers and companies, placing everything at risk—and everyone in mortal peril. The rich cast of characters—in publishing and film, politics and espionage—are all forced to confront the consequences of their ambitions, the schisms between their ideal selves and the people they actually became. The action rockets around Europe and across America, with an intricate web of duplicities stretching back a quarter-century to a dark winding road in upstate New York, where the shocking truth about the accident itself is buried. Gripping, sophisticated, layered, and impossible to put down, The Accident proves once again that Chris Pavone is a true master of suspense.

Lorsque Abigail et une dizaine d'autres jeunes filles sont aperçues dansant nues en pleine nuit dans la forêt, quelques puritains de Salem s'empressent de crier à la sorcellerie. Bientôt, un procès plonge cette communauté de Nouvelle-Angleterre dans la colère et la confusion. Ceux qui sont accusés d'être des oeuvres du démon encourent la potence. En 1953, alors que l'Amérique est en proie au maccarthysme et à la " chasse aux sorcières ", Arthur Miller écrit une pièce incisive sur un célèbre épisode de l'histoire américaine : le procès qui, en 1692, ébranla la petite ville de Salem, gagnée par une crise d'hystérie puritaine, et se solda par la condamnation de nombreuses personnes soupçonnées de pratiques sataniques et par vingt-cinq exécutions. Cette oeuvre illustre de façon magistrale comment peut être franchie – à toute époque – la frontière entre raison et folie, justice et fanatisme. " Viscéral et vital. " The Guardian
