La nueva aventura de la detective más sofisticada de los años veinte que ha conquistado a los lectores de medio mundo. Sin perder ni un ápice de su inimitable estilo, la siempre intrépida y sugerente Phryne Fisher vuela aún más alto en esta segunda entrega. Encantada con su nuevo papel de investigadora privada, Phryne hará lo imposible por desbaratar los planes de unos siniestros secuestradores o por evitar las consecuencias de un tenso enfrentamiento familiar, todo mientras planifica su intensa vida amorosa o invita a cenar a una amiga en el lujoso hotel Windsor, por supuesto. Ya sea conduciendo a toda velocidad su Hispano-Suiza rojo, refutando los cargos por homicidio que pesan sobre uno de sus clientes, pilotando un biplano Tiger Moth o simplemente decidiendo qué ponerse para salir, las encantadoras excentricidades de la más clásica y moderna de las heroínas cautivarán de nuevo a su legión de incondicionales admiradores. Como sacada de una novela de Agatha Christie y con un vestuario que haría palidecer a la mismísima Coco Chanel, Phryne Fisher es exactamente lo que cabría esperar de ella: la detective más inolvidable de los felices años veinte. «Miss Fisher siempre consigue ser ella misma y tiene el talento de disfrutarlo cada segundo, logrando que nos quedemos boquiabiertos con su elegante e independiente manera de hacerlo».

Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight would be more than enough excitement for most people, but not for Phryne—amateur detective and woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades. In fact, the 1920s’ most talented and glamorous detective flies even higher here, handling a murder, a kidnapping, and the usual array of beautiful young men with style and consummate ease. And she does it all before it’s time to adjourn to the Queenscliff Hotel for breakfast. Whether she’s flying planes, clearing a friend of homicide charges, or saving a child, Phryne does everything with the same dash and elan with which she drives her red Hispano-Suiza.

Rudra, hombre apartado de todo trato humano, encuentra un niño recién nacido dado a luz por una madre muerta. Se lo prohija y cría. A los quince años lo lleva consigo a Babilonia. Su propósito es que Ah-raá sea instruido por loss magos (sacerdotes) de ese reino. Rudra da a Ah-raá el Collar de los Siete Misterios, talismán místico que acredita a su poseedor como heredero legítimo del trono de Babilonia. Los caminos de padre e hijo se cruzan con los de Siri, el gran mercader, empeñado en comprar el muchacho. Unidos a su caravana, viajan hasta Egipto. En Menfis entran en contacto con los sacerdotes de Osiris, depositarios de la ciencia hermética. Sobre esta trama montada entre la antigua Asiria y el no menos antiguo Egipto, se desenvuelve “Madre Muerte”, primera parte de la trilogía, en la que se entremezclan sorprendentes aventuras para el lector.s En la segunda entrega, El Espíritu de la Esfinge, la historia discurre a caballo de las ciudades de Babilonia y Menfis. En esta última, Ah-raá recibe la formación y las seculares enseñanzas del Gran Instructor del Templo de Osiris, y conocerá la auténtica Revelación del espíritu que mora en el interior de la Esfinge, la luz infinita que le impulsará a su veradero Destino. En la tercera entrega El León Alado, Rudra y Mutk han muerto. Siri ha dejado atrás sus hazañas de Gran Mercader y se ha remansado como un rico comerciante. Ah-raá, concluidos sus estudios, ha alcanzado la categoría de gran mago y ciñe su frente con la corona del “león alado”. En el trono de Babilonia se sienta un nuevo rey. Humanamente, es una escoria. Está manipulado por una sombra negra y anhela reunir en sí los dos poderes, el religioso y el civil que se equilibran el uno con el otro. Sobre todos pesa la amenaza del Caos. El gran mago Asauri y Ah-raá se han de enfrentar a una red de intrigas con las que la ambición teje una guerra absurda y ruinosa. Sobre esto gira el hilo argumental.

First published in English in 1965, "The Reawakening" is Primo Levi's bestselling sequel to his classic memoir of the Holocaust, "Survival in Auschwitz." The inspiring story of Levi's liberation from the German death camp in January 1945 by the Red Army, it tells of his strange and eventful journey home to Italy by way of the Soviet Union, Hungary, and Romania. Levi's railway travels take him through bombed-out cities and transit camps, with keen insight he describes the former prisoners and Russian soldiers he encounters along the way. An extraordinary account of faith, hope, and undying courage, "The Reawakening" was praised by Irving Howe as "a remarkable feat of literary craft."

In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and , unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life. Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless. Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity , and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page. From the Trade Paperback edition.
