Monsieur Hercule Poirot recebe uma misteriosa carta de um milionário sul-americano, monsieur Renauld, dizendo precisar dos serviços de um detetive e pedindo sua ajuda. A carta não dá detalhes do caso, nem informa exatamente o que está perturbando monsieur Renauld, só menciona que sua vida está em perigo. Imediatamente Poirot, seguido de seu assistente, o inseparável Hastings, parte para Merlinville-sur-Mer, uma pequena cidade no litoral francês onde reside o milionário. Porém, ao chegarem à casa de monsieur Renauld, descobrem que ele foi assassinado naquela noite, em um crime brutal: Renauld fora apunhalado pelas costas, estirado ao lado de uma cova no campo de golfe da propriedade. Quem teria motivos para assassinar monsieur Renauld? Por que Poirot tem a estranha sensação de que muitas coisas lhe são familiares neste caso? Monsieur Renauld tem ou não tem uma amante? As provas não se encaixam, os testemunhos são contraditórios e Poirot tem algo a mais com que se preocupar: a presença de Giraud, um famoso detetive francês da Sûreté de Paris, que também acompanha o caso e tem sérias divergências quanto aos métodos empregados por Poirot. Em um dos mais complicados casos que já investigou, Poirot irá usar toda sua argúcia e suas “células cinzentas” para descobrir quem assassinou monsieur Renauld e desvendar todas as complexas circunstâncias desta ardilosa trama na qual, além do assassino, o amor também se revela.

Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse . . .

A young woman walks into a laboratory. Over the past two years, she has transformed almost every aspect of her life. She has quit smoking, run a marathon, and been promoted at work. The patterns inside her brain, neurologists discover, have fundamentally changed. Marketers at Procter & Gamble study videos of people making their beds. They are desperately trying to figure out how to sell a new product called Febreze, on track to be one of the biggest flops in company history. Suddenly, one of them detects a nearly imperceptible pattern--and with a slight shift in advertising, Febreze goes on to earn a billion dollars a year. An untested CEO takes over one of the largest companies in America. His first order of business is attacking a single pattern among his employees--how they approach worker safety--and soon the firm, Alcoa, becomes the top performer in the Dow Jones. What do all these people have in common? They achieved success by focusing on the...

Suécia. Em um verão especialmente quente, Linda Wallin, aluna da Academia de Polícia de Växjö, é brutalmente estuprada e assassinada. Evert Bäckström, policial machista e autocentrado de Estocolmo, recebe a missão de comandar a investigação do crime e desloca sua equipe para a bucólica cidade. Egoísta, vaidoso e cheio de preconceitos, Bäckström não demonstra senso de dever ou responsabilidade. É um homem capaz de sentir afeto apenas por seu peixinho dourado e por garrafas de bebida — o retrato da mediocridade e da mesquinhez. Para resolver o caso, a resignada equipe de policiais precisará correr contra o tempo e seguir as escassas pistas que a intransigência de Bäckström não deixou escapar. No mundo cínico criado por Persson, povoado por abutres de todos os tipos, a justiça só triunfa parcialmente. Um romance impiedoso, mas que retrata a realidade de modo absolutamente hilariante.

An international sensation now available in English for the first time, The Violin of Auschwitz is the unforgettable story of one man’s refusal to surrender his dignity in the face of history’s greatest atrocity. In the winter of 1991, at a concert in Krakow, an older woman with a marvelously pitched violin meets a fellow musician who is instantly captivated by her instrument. When he asks her how she obtained it, she reveals the remarkable story behind its origin. . . . Imprisoned at Auschwitz, the notorious concentration camp, Daniel feels his humanity slipping away. Treasured memories of the young woman he loved and the prayers that once lingered on his lips become hazier with each passing day. Then a visit from a mysterious stranger changes everything, as Daniel’s former identity as a crafter of fine violins is revealed to all. The camp’s two most dangerous men use this information to make a cruel wager: If Daniel can build a successful violin within a certain number of days, the Kommandant wins a case of the finest burgundy. If not, the camp doctor, a torturer, gets hold of Daniel. And so, battling exhaustion, Daniel tries to recapture his lost art, knowing all too well the likely cost of failure. Written with lyrical simplicity and haunting beauty—and interspersed with chilling, actual Nazi documentation—The Violin of Auschwitz is more than just a novel: It is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of beauty, art, and hope to triumph over the darkest adversity. From the Hardcover edition.

From the winner of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom, a bitingly funny, kaleidoscopic vision of the first world through the eyes of the third Eduardo Galeano, author of the incomparable Memory of Fire Trilogy, combines a novelist's intensity, a poet's lyricism, a journalist's fearlessness, and the strong judgments of an engaged historian. Now his talents are richly displayed in Upside Down, an eloquent, passionate, sometimes hilarious exposé of our first-world privileges and assumptions. In a series of lesson plans and a "program of study" about our beleaguered planet, Galeano takes the reader on a wild trip through the global looking glass. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car"--with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of "The Right to Rave"--he surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and helplessness. We have accepted a reality we should reject, Galeano teaches us, one where machines are more precious than humans, people are hungry, poverty kills, and children toil from dark to dark. A work of fire and charm, Upside Down makes us see the world anew and even glimpse how it might be set right. "Galeano's outrage is tempered by intelligence, an ineradicable sense of humor, and hope." -Los Angeles Times, front page
